The Grand America Bridal Extravaganza has always been the biggest and best Winter Bridal Showcase and is located at one of Utah’s most luxurious locations! This year’s amazing show on Saturday was no exception! With over 90 of Utah’s best wedding professionals set up with some outstanding booths and over 800 brides attending, this show was even bigger and better than we anticipated!


A big THANK YOU to all of the participating vendors and to all of you beautiful brides-to-be that attended! Congratulations to everyone that won some fabulous prizes, and we hope everyone had a great time and were able to take care of most, if not all, of your wedding planning needs. There was so much to see and hopefully you got some wonderful ideas. Maybe (hopefully) you even booked some vendors, or at least decided who and what you want!

Stay tuned for more post show details and pictures from the Grand America Bridal Show!  For now, check out this adorable couple who attended the show!  So cute and we LOVE their shirts!

About the Grand America ~ Host of The Winter Bridal Extravaganza

Utah’s # 1, Utah’s biggest and best wedding showcase at one of Utah’s most extravagant locations, the Winter Bridal Extravaganza at The Grand America is TOMORROW!

We are thrilled that one of Utah’s most luxurious locations, The Grand America Hotel, is hosting the annual Winter Bridal Extravaganza. So we thought we would feature this gorgeous wedding venue and honeymoon paradise for you today on the blog!

From the moment you enter the Grand America as you enter the enormous Northern Italian white and gray marble lobby, past bellmen in dapper vest suits, and smell the scent of fresh cut flowers wafting about you from a large center urn you will realize this venue can offer you so much elegance and beauty.

A wedding should be a happy, lasting memory of one of life’s most important milestones.  The Grand America can make that memory truly extraordinary. The Grand America Hotel promises magical settings, exquisite details, and exemplary personal service backed by a rich history of excellence. Venues  at the Grand are unmatched in style and design. Choose from an intimate reception in the Grand Salon, with its Italian marble accents, French doors, and access to a private Renaissance-style garden patio, or entertain guests at a grand banquet in the Imperial Ballroom, dancing beneath hand-blown Murano chandeliers.  The Garden Courtyard, with its impeccably landscaped parterre beds and classic water fountains, sets the scene for a romantic day or night wedding. This Five Diamond Hotel is the perfect compliment to the glamour and class of the ring adorning the bride’s left hand.  As the only hotel in Salt Lake City with the prestigious honor of AAA Five Diamond recognition, you are sure to experience the difference that classification makes in service, food, and overall ambiance.  The team of Executive Chefs are available to create custom menus including Indian, Cajun, Persian, Halal, and more to make your culinary experience one to remember.  With an amazing on site Pastry Kitchen, they can create everything from small chocolate truffle favors to a wedding cake that reaches over five feet tall and tastes just as spectacular as it looks.

At The Grand, you will be working with a wedding professional to assist with all aspects of the big day – from floral decor, reception entertainment, and photo and video services to coordinating a day at the Grand Spa for the bridal party or a catered dinner brought to you by world-class chefs.

Think of The Grand as a hotel where you purchase not only your catering, but also your cake, flowers, linens and almost everything else  (excluding your dress and the groom!).  Whether you are looking for a simple dinner for 30, a ceremony in the immaculate Garden Courtyard or an extravagant reception for over 500, they can create the experience you’re looking for.  You will work with only the best of the best to make sure your wedding runs impeccably.  They do not require you to work with specific vendors when it comes to items such as entertainment, floral, cake, etc, but they do offer many referrals based on your needs and wants.  Wedding packages can be a great way to determine cost and see exactly what you get for the money but The Grand America Hotel prefers an a la carte approach which makes your day a one of a kind event rather than selecting from Packages A, B or C.  This allows you the flexibility to choose what you want instead of being told what you’ll get.

Post Wedding Show Tips & Advice

We want to thank everyone who attended the Bridal Extravaganza at the Davis Conference Center on Saturday! A big thanks to our amazing vendors and the many, many brides who came out for making it such a wonderful show. We hope you had a great time and were able to take care of most, if not all, of your wedding planning needs. There was so much to see and hopefully you got some wonderful ideas. Maybe you even booked some vendors, or at least decided who and what you want.  So, the question is: Now What?

We would like to share some tips and advice for you as you sort through all the information you received at the show that will hopefully help you get the most out of the time you spent there and to make sure you get all the important components together to plan the wedding of your dreams!

1- Call the vendors you are interested in meeting with immediately, especially if you are planning a weekend wedding or a wedding on a special date or any weekend in May – September.  If you are interested in booking with a certain vendor, DO NOT wait. Chances are very good that you could lose that date to another bride.  Many of Utah’s best professionals are already booking through the end of the year as well as into next year.

2- Ask vendors for referrals. If the vendor you want is booked, ask them for a referral.  Most professionals in the industry have great relationships with each other and many of them will kindly recommend someone who does quality work in their same field.  Typically they will recommend someone who does similar work as they do to ensure you are happy with what you get.

3- Have a backup plan. If the vendor you want is booked and they do not have any referrals, make sure you know of other vendors you want to call.  Make sure you have the name and info of not just Plan A, but also of Plan B, Plan C, etc.  Keep the show brochure on hand because it has all the contact information for all the vendors.  You can also find vendor information from the show on the Utah Bridal Shows website.

4 – Visit thebrideandgroom.com daily and check out our blog posts. This might be a little self promoting but on a nearly daily basis we are updating the site and blog with tips and ideas for your wedding. Many amazing Utah wedding vendors contribute to and/or are featured on our blog and you might be able to find great inspiration for planning your wedding.  You might also find a vendor that you didn’t see at the show.

5 – Do not stress. If you go back and read the featured wedding blogs that we have posted over the years you will almost inevitably see the same thing: we ask the bride what their #1 recommendation to other brides is and almost 100% of the time they say the same thing, “DO NOT STRESS over your wedding details.”  Although important, it is one day in your life, so do not worry if things don’t go off exactly as planned. Sit back, have fun, and  enjoy the moments and the process.  Remember part of the fun is getting there.  Enjoy the planning time together but DO NOT have the planning cause issues between you and your fiance.

If you didn’t get enough of everything wedding at this show or were not able to attend, don’t you worry because we are having ANOTHER amazing Bridal Extravaganza show THIS Saturday, January 23rd! The Grand America Bridal Show is always one of our most popular shows at one of Utah’s most gorgeous locations!


Best wishes in your wedding planning!
