Vermont Wedding Association hosts 35th annual Rutland Bridal Show

Sunday, Feb. 27 — RUTLAND — Come celebrate your engagement and meet the largest group of the area’s top wedding professionals. The largest number of engagements happens from Thanksgiving to Valentine’s Day. Couples have told us that they get engaged over the holidays because they plan to spend time with family and want to share their exciting news.

Vermont Wedding Association has been presenting bridal shows since 2001. The VWA Bridal Shows have been voted the top bridal shows in the industry by brides, grooms and wedding professionals. When you attend our bridal shows you’ll meet the area’s top Vermont wedding pros who are ready to share ideas and suggestions to help make your day magical. Grand prizes so far from Southside Steakhouse, Overtime Events, New England Federal Credit Union, Blossoms n’ More, Sound Wave Entertainment, Dream Maker Bakers and Vermont Inn. See updated grand prizes as we receive them at Brides have told us that they will go to 2-3 shows and will sometimes travel more than an hour to go to a show. Our most recent brides/couples have also told us that they go to shows for ideas, to explore, to be inspired, and to find a DJ, photographer, baker, florist and a venue! Some have shared that they wanted to meet a specific vendor one more time before they hire them.

Everyday approximately 6,000 patients who need life-saving marrow are searching for a donor match. For over 13 years the Vermont Wedding Association has partnered with Kerry Ellis and the Marrow Donor Program at Rutland Regional Medical Center donating a table at each of our bridal shows to welcome couples and their families to find a match. We are pleased to share that we have found a match at 5 of our shows and some have gone on to become donors. We are so pleased to be part of making that connection to save a life.
