Should you go to a bridal show to look for things and vendors you need to complete your wedding? Rose Tuxedo has been in the tuxedo rental business in Arizona for over 25 years. We have participated in all the “big name” bridal shows, and the small ones as well. Years ago there was no Google search engine so if businesses didn’t have an ad in the Yellow Pages or a booth at a bridal show, brides and grooms had a hard time finding you. For the bride it’s like a badge of honor to attend a bridal show with her mother, future mother-in-law and all or some of her bridesmaids and friends. She can shop for wedding cake companies, catering, limos, places to have the wedding, men’s formalwear and so much more. She will be approached by every vendor she and her friends walk by.

Bridal shows are not cheap anymore though; they usually cost you about $12.00 per person to get in. You can find deals and meet some good vendors.
