Wedding Wars 2014 – Who won?

Denver Bridal Show, Denver Wedding Event, Colorado Wedding Show

Wedding Wars Bridal Show | Colorado Bridal Shows

In January, Rocky Mountain Bride, GoBreck and Baldoria on the Water sponsored the Wedding Wars Bridal Show. This is our second annual event and we loved it even more than the first time. My favorite bridal show, I’ve created, to date!! Here is what a fellow wedding professional said about the show ”

“There are bridal shows, and then there are bridal SHOWS! Straight up – some bridal shows are huge and can be daunting to take on! There is a wealth of information, but they can definitely be overwhelming. I remember going to those shows as a bride and feeling trapped. There were so many people, all moving in one direction, and I couldn’t move the other way, even if I really wanted to!

I hate being forced to go somewhere that I don’t want to go. I hate feeling trapped. I knew that I felt that way as a bride, and I have really focused on being a part of the smaller, more boutique bridal shows as a wedding professional. I MUCH prefer the smaller shows – these amazing collaborations of talented professionals, where brides get to see some firsthand wedding inspiration. Doable ideas, things that can inspire them to build the wedding of their dreams.

And that, my friends, is what Wedding Wars is. I have now had the privilege of being a part of Wedding Wars for two years now, and I love it every time! The couples have a chance to actually TALK with people and get ideas, and they get to vote for their favorite setup.”

Well, we didn’t want to keep you all in suspense about what all the inspired creations (wedding vignettes) looked like and who won the WARS!
