It's one of the happiest days in a couple's life, their wedding day. Pulling off this celebration takes a lot of time and planning.

We're live on-location at the Bridal Extravaganza Show in Downtown Houston, a festive event with more than 255 top wedding professionals, making it a one-stop-shop to create a dream wedding. Couples will be able to talk with the experts, see the latest trends, and get ideas.

Laurette Veres, producer of The Bridal Extravaganza Show, says the event will feature six fashion shows each day showcasing the latest in bridal fashion, wedding pro seminars, a Las Vegas-style gaming area, and plenty of opportunities for photos with your bridesmaids.

Wedding planner and co-founder of Visit the Venues, Lorie Speich, shares valuable tips on how to start the planning process, budgeting, choosing a venue, photographer, dress, flowers and decor, and more. Plus, she also offers ideas on how to have a budget-friendly wedding.

We'll also speak with Nadine Moon, travel advisor for Archer Luxury Travel, who discusses trending spots and tips for planning an amazing honeymoon.

This event will also feature Make Me A Comic, which offers a unique gift option for couples. We'll talk with its founder, Aura Gold, who discusses how they can illustrate your love story in comic form.

We also sample exquisite cakes from bakeries such as, Sweet Extravagance, Wedding Cakes by Tammy Allen, Supreme Kakes, and "Who Made the Cake!"

The Bridal Extravaganza Show will be held at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston January 21-22, 2023. For more information, visit
