[Love]² Bridal Fair

Love 2 Bridal Fair

Join us for the [Love]² Bridal Fair

Event planners and future brides and grooms can find everything they need at [Love]² Bridal Fair on Sunday, Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is brought to you in partnership by Main Street Square, Black Hills Bride and The Hotel Alex Johnson.

The fourth annual bridal show features the latest ideas from wedding and special occasion exhibitors, contract specials from businesses offered exclusively at the event, giveaways, and entertainment. The entertainment co-sponsors are Cadey Reisner Weddings and Neugebauer’s Fine Jewelry.

Wedding and special occasion vendor booths will line Main Street Square and Sixth St., featuring venues, photographers, DJs, caterers, décor rentals, cosmetic consultants and more. Be sure to grab your free copy of the 2017 Black Hills Bride magazine, which will be available at multiple locations at the event.

“[Love]² Bridal Fair brings together a day of fashion, special occasion exhibitors and other resources for couples and event planners in the heart of Downtown Rapid City,” said Megan Whitman, executive director of Main Street Square. “It makes wedding planning a fun and memorable experience for all involved.”

The Bud Light Beverage Garden will provide one complimentary mimosa for all brides 21 years of age and older, with a valid ID.

Trash the Dress

The third annual Trash the Dress competition is an opportunity to be creative and raise money for local non-profit Mommy’s Closet. Audra’s Bridal Gallery will be donating dresses to be trashed by teams of brides and local businesses. All teams will “trash” their dress anyway they would like, as long as it is still recognizable as a wedding dress. The trashed dresses will be displayed during [Love]2 Bridal Fair at ID check stations, where attendees will cast their vote by placing a donation in the container at their favorite dress.
