"Reverse" Bridal Expo Puts To-Be-Weds in Driver's Seat

"Reverse" Bridal Expo Puts To-Be-Weds in Driver's Seat

Bridal shows can be overwhelming - for the brides and grooms as well as the exhibitors.  Where do you start? Which booths do you visit? How do you get all of the information you need?

Now there is a bridal show that allows brides and grooms to stay in one place while the professionals come to them. The Reverse Bridal Expo is Sunday, November 29, 2015, at The Falls Event Center in Elk Grove.

Bridal Expo Producer Richard Markel came up with the idea when he attended a trade show as a buyer.  The system was set up for him to stay at a table and, through pre-set appoinments, the sellers came by and made their presentations to him.
