It is no secret that the northern Blue Ridge Mountains Shenandoah Valley offers everything a bride could imagine as the wedding backdrop for one’s special day. Today’s Brides are always looking for new ideas the the most popular wedding trends. This year’s Blue Ridge Bridal Shows are focusing on expanding the list of affordable wedding venues. The Virginia Bridal Show is this Sunday January 25th and will not only showcase Virginia wedding venues but all the many other options brides and grooms have to choose from. The show also has a popular blog which Go Blue Ridge Travel shares with Blue Ridge Brides. 

One of the hottest trends in weddings is Dancing and taking it up a notch. This can be from the first dance to a special performance by the groomsmen. Social Graces Ballroom Dancing will provide both a couple dance demonstration and then later a mini class for couples to try.

There will also be hair and make up demonstrations by Lavish Hair Salon and Boutique.

To kick the show up a notch Bud’s Collective will give a live performance prior to Potomac Bridals Runway Fashion Show. This runway approach was so popular at the Fall George Washington Hotel show that we are bringing it back again.

The show will open at 1 pm at Millwood Station Special Event Center and will showcase leading wedding professionals here in the valley.  Millwood is just below Costco off of Route 522 in Winchester, Virginia.

Venue choices include wedding Barns and mountain settings. Historic Rosemont Manor in Berryville, Virginia. Throughout its 200-year history, Historic Rosemont Manor has embodied the graciousness of true Southern Hospitality. Perhaps one of the most breath-taking views across a golf course can be found at the Shenandoah Valley Golf Club. The Stable at Bluemont Vineyard offers the popularity of the rustic barn as well as again, a breathtaking view 951 feet up the mountain over a vineyard.

Following the state’s mission, Blue Ridge Bride offers every bride a travel planning guide thru the sister website – Go Blue Ridge Travel. “One mission of a wedding destination is to make the planning process as painless as possible, said Nancy Craun, owner and founder. “The bride can utilize the wedding planning guide and email these itineraries to the invited guests. The guests then have the option of creating one’s vacation itinerary on the site as well.”

And what about the grooms —— thanks to Alpha Voyages, grooms have the opportunity to win a FREE honeymoon to Sandals Resorts – voted the top all – inclusive resort destination in the world. Brides are invited to attend the show with family and friends.
