Longview, Texas Bridal Fair Strives for Intimate Setting and Personal Service

Newly engaged? Getting married soon? If so, consider visiting a local bridal show, such as the East Texas Wedding Extravaganza in Longview, Texas - held at the Arabella Manor venue.

The East Texas event is sponsored by Emily Rae's Bridal, Prom & Tux Boutique of Longview. Emily Rae's co-owner Holli Gold said bridal events are a huge benefit to those planning a wedding because they offer brides so many options in one location. "It helps to have everything you need in one place," she said.

Gold said her company had a presence at the bridal fair in Tyler called "The Wedded Bliss." She said success at that show led to her firm's openness in sponsoring the Longview show. "We went to the Tyler show, and there was great interaction," Gold said. "It was overwhelming, but fun."

The bridal boutique co-owner said she expects people from across the area to attend the Longview Bridal Show. "We have brides from Shreveport, Texarkana and Paris - besides our customers in the Longview and Tyler area," Gold added. "We think this bridal show will benefit all brides in the Ark-La-Tex."

The Longview Bridal Show and other local wedding events also allow wedding-related firms like Emily Rae's Bridal to interact with other businesses in the area which they might otherwise never meet. "There are so many brides in the area, and we have even been able to refer a few customers to other stores that may carry a certain line that we don't," said Gold."

This collaborative way of thinking helped Emily Rae's Bridal develop a relationship with a local florist who will be making a special bouquet for brides-to-be to hold when trying on wedding dresses. "It's good to help each other," said the co-owner of Emily Rae's Bridal.

More than 70 individual exhibitors are scheduled for the Longview Bridal Show. The presence of multiple vendors conveniently located at the same location can offer both time and financial savings when it comes to wedding planning. Specific categories of the show include: bakery, bar service, beauty, catering, DJ, fireworks, health, hotels, limousine rentals, musicians, parties, photographers, rentals, venues, wedding attire, wedding gifts and wedding planners.

The Longview Bridal Show is being held at Arabella Manor. Teresa Crisler, manager and co-owner of the venue, said it is the fourth time the event has been held at Arabella Manor. Crisler said: "It is always first class, and I expect nothing less this year."

According to Crisler, the planners of the East Texas Wedding Extravaganza have always made sure that the Longview Bridal Show is intimate, and she said this is in line with the size of Arabella Manor. "We are not a huge venue or anything, so the show brings together many vendors but not much overlap," Crisler said. "It is a good mix of vendors in an intimate setting that allows customers to get to know vendors. It's really nice."

The Longview bridal show is positioned well in the year  - away from most bridal shows that begin at the start of each year. "Some people want ideas at the end of the year so they can start thinking and getting their plans together right now," said Crisler. "Everyone coming has a great specialty - not to mention the one on one contact. It will be great."

Some vendors will be offering exclusive show specials and discounts during the event. Prize giveaways will also feature heavily in the event, and prizes slated to be given away include wedding flowers and DJ/wedding band packages. These prizes will be provided by show sponsors and participants. In addition, Arabella Manor is giving away the use of the Arabella Manor venue for a lucky winner. "That is an amazing perk that will make one couple very, very happy," said Teresa Crisler of Arabella Manor.
