Virginia Bride Magazine hosted their 12th annual Greater Virginia Bridal Show – yesterday in Fredericksburg at The Hospitality House Hotel in Central Park .

Over 75 vendors were on display with services, products and samples to talk with hundreds of guests and couples who attended.

The highlight of the show was the $35,000 Dream Giveaway that is held each year at this show. Right at the conclusion of the show at 5:00 P.M. – Virginia Bride Magazine publisher – Angeline Frame- gathered the participating Dream Wedding Vendors on stage to draw the winning bride. With hundreds of guests looking on- David Canty of Memorable Moments- randomly drew d the winner out of hundreds of entries.

We would like to congratulate the winning couple – Tiffany and Brian of Montross, Virginia.  This is a great story as each year we make one lucky couple’s wedding truly a dream wedding by putting together an amazing package from trusted long time wedding businesses. This year there was a magical end to this story- when the bride arrived at the show she realized that she had forgotten her ATM card and only had $2. A complete stranger in line handed her $5 so she could go in. Obviously this was meant to be.
