Promoter Spotlight – Wedding Steps is Western Connecticut’s Premier Wedding Planning Resource
As every bride planning a wedding knows, there’s a lot of steps to creating a perfect event. And that’s where Wedding Steps, Western Connecticut’s premier wedding planning resource, comes in. Wedding Steps covers the wedding planning gamut from tips and advice on the Wedding Steps blog, to vendor listings in an online directory, to producing beautiful and unique bridal shows. If you’re a bride in the Greater Danbury or Western Connecticut region, you need to know Wedding Steps!
You can start with The Wedding Steps magazine. Published annually, the magazine is a helpful guide for the newly engaged. You’ll find planning tips, budget sheets, and wedding inspiration and ideas. Articles written by top wedding professionals in the area will help guide even the most anxious bride through the planning process. You can pick up a copy at Macy’s, at retailers in the Danbury Mall, or from many of Western Connecticut’s wedding planning professionals. You can even request a complimentary copy from the Wedding Steps website, or you can pick up a copy at a Wedding Steps bridal expo.
Now, about those expos… don’t miss a Wedding Steps bridal show! Bridal shows are a fantastic way for brides to meet local vendors, taste cakes, listen to DJs and find out everything they need to know about wedding services. But Wedding Steps bridal shows go a few steps further. What do they do that’s so special?
Almost all bridal shows present a fashion show so brides can see the latest dresses. But Wedding Steps gives brides a fantastic twist on the bridal fashion show. “We didn’t want to take the time away from brides having the chance to talk to vendors,” says Teri Damo, show coordinator for Wedding Steps. “So we asked the bridal boutiques to have models do a stroll around in top fashions. Brides can get a close look at dresses, see all the details, and actually feel the material.”
Wedding Steps bridal shows are also held in possible reception venues. Not only can brides meet vendors, take advantage of special show discounts, and possibly win door prizes, they can check out a reception location that they may be thinking of. Wedding Steps bridal shows are held in some of the finest and most in demand venues in Western Connecticut and it’s a great way to not only visit a venue but to see how an event unfolds in that venue.
Wedding Steps offers bridal shows throughout the year, so no matter when you get engaged there’s probably an upcoming show to attend. “We’ve been producing shows for many years and we offer good shows for the brides,” says Teri. “It’s something to help the brides stay on track. The can meet the vendors and get to see the work up close. Things like bridal gowns look beautiful in a magazine, but it’s different to see it up close.”
And Wedding Steps is there for brides after the bridal show too. With a full-service online directory of local vendors, brides in Connecticut can find the vendors they met at the shows and liked the best with ease. The Wedding Steps directory covers all the different elements of planning from reception locations to finding hair and makeup artists. With useful articles and links to other bridal inspiration sites, there’s no reason to look further than Wedding Steps!
As Teri notes, at the end of the day, it’s all about the brides. “It’s a big day and we want them to meet the right vendors,” says Teri. “I mean, I’ve been there and I understand what it takes to plan a wedding. We don’t make it overwhelming for the bride, but we get them the right information.”
