While we may be just getting over, “the most wonderful time of the year,” for some people the most wonderful time of the year is just beginning, wedding planning season! In lieu of holiday engagements increasingly gaining popularity, the month of January has become a very popular time for wedding planning and here on Long Island that’s no different!
If you’re someone starting off their year with the vision of wedding bells, then you need to visit one of the many bridal showcases going on across Long Island! From meeting and connecting with various wedding professionals, to listening to the best venue bands and DJs, to visiting the different available venues, to taking a bite out of delicious entrees and wedding cakes. Whether your dream wedding involves bare feet and walking down the beach, or a waltz in the middle of a twinkling ballroom, these showcases have it all and more!
