GROOM'S CONTEST / 4:00 at the stage
Who says only women have a great time at a bridal show? Not here! Our grooms are the stars of the show in our very popular Groom's Contest. We accept only 12 contestants, fellas who are willing to don one of our special occasion dresses and STRUT THEIR STUFF down the runway.
The winner is determined by audience applause (and whistles). What do they win? They get the first pick of all of the grand prizes. Of course, they can't see which prize they have selected until the envelope they selected is opened. But it could be the honeymoon!! So, start talking to your fiance' NOW about entering. The 12 slots book up very quickly (believe it or not) so you'll want to take care of this part early. The contest has become one of the most popular attractions at the show (you can imagine).
