Press release from Henderson County TDA:
Brides looking to get married in the Blue Ridge Mountains can plan their dream weddings at the Say I Do to Hendersonville Bridal Show, Saturday, March 23.
Hendersonville is a popular choice for local brides, as well as brides planning destination weddings. The area’s natural beauty, variety of venues and myriad businesses that support the wedding industry all contribute to Hendersonville’s popularity. The show features vendors from all facets of the wedding world, such as venues, caterers, photographers, videographers, fashion retailers, florists, bakeries, DJs, planners, hairdressers, makeup artists and more.
There are 65 venues in Henderson County to accommodate weddings of all sizes and styles. Intimate spaces, such as bed-and-breakfast inns, gardens and historic buildings, are ideal for smaller weddings. While several scenic wineries, renovated barns, church sanctuaries, hotel ballrooms and rustic outdoor settings allow for large celebrations.
The bridal show gives couples an opportunity to meet vendors in person, ask questions and sample their products.
“In Hendersonville, we offer a variety of services, so brides can pick and choose from different pieces to put together their day,” says Beth Carden, executive director of Henderson County Tourism. “Vendors are listening to what brides are asking for and connecting the dots.”
The Henderson County Tourism Development Authority, which sponsors the show, also has a group services coordinator on staff who offers free consultation services to brides looking to host weddings in the area.
“For people getting married today, it’s all about the experience, for the couple as well as their family and friends,” Carden says.
The Say I Do to Hendersonville Bridal Show takes place in the spacious conference hall at Blue Ridge Community College. Hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and admission is $5.
