A new kind of Bridal Show, one where you actually visit venues and experience what your big day will feel like. Come on out to some of the most popular wedding locations in Brown County, and meet with local vendors who specialize in Brown County weddings.
Most bridal shows present a booth to booth experience, walking through crowds to multiple tables of fliers. While the Brown County Bridal Tour will offer the same benefits of meeting with different vendors, we are hoping to provide a more hands on, one on one experience. You will actually be able to go into popular venues in the area, and see what each atmosphere is like, and if it is right for you. Our goal is to help you experience a preview of the magic of Brown County weddings.
Tickets – $8-presale, $10-at the door
