Every year, the Bridal Extravaganza Show chooses a real-life Houston-area bride to be the face of the show. This bride is seen on billboards, across social media platforms, and at the show inspiring others with her story. Ka’cha Tousant, this year’s Billboard Bride, opened up about her experience at the show, and how it has shifted her wedding planning journey.

First Bridal Show

Ka’cha says she had never been to a bridal show before. She decided to attend the Bridal Extravaganza after hearing about it across Facebook, and from her sister, who walked in the fashion show the previous year.

One of the recurring crowd-favorite events is the Vendor Scavenger Hunt, which takes VIP brides throughout the convention to different vendor booths where they can fill their goodie bags with special prizes provided by the vendors. This scavenger hunt also gives brides the chance to explore the convention, and visit booths they may not have considered otherwise.

“I got to learn a lot about the wedding planning process,” said Ka’cha. “My favorite part was getting to run around and have fun while getting things done.”

Becoming Billboard Bride

“Whenever I found out, I was really excited,” said Ka’cha. “When going up against so many people, you never expect that it’s going to be you.”

Ka’cha detailed her excitement when she found out she was selected to be this year’s Billboard Bride. Not only is she the face of the Bridal Extravaganza Show, but this was an opportunity to dive head-first into the wedding planning world fora sneak peek of what is to come. From a styled shoot coordinated by some of Houston’s top vendors, to receiving her first facial treatment, Ka’cha says she realized she was able to slow down and stress less.

Planning a Fairytale Wedding

Ka’cha says the Bridal Extravaganza and Billboard Bride experience has had a huge impact on her wedding planning process. Throughout the show, brides are given the unique opportunity to not only discuss business in person with different vendors, but also share personal stories, ideas, and experiences with one another. This is something that simply cannot be achieved through an email consultation.

“This experience has completely opened my eyes to a ton of little things that I didn’t even think of,” said Ka’cha. “I’m learning how to make my day the most perfect day for me.”

What our EXHIBITORS say...

Russell Ross - Encanta Video

"The reason we attend the Bridal Extravaganza is that there are usually at least 3,000 brides. If they are not all getting married, they have friends and family who are having birthday parties, church events, recitals, and lectures that need to be recorded. It is difficult and costly to get this targeted of an audience via Facebook, Google, or any other method of communication."

Every single show I meet brides who become clients. Recently, as the economy and industry have changed, participating in the Bridal Extravaganza has become an even more valuable way to connect with brides.

When I started reading about "Bridal Extravaganza" I came to the conclusion that this bridal show was one of the best ones in the United States... It turned out it is. It's been 3 weeks and I already booked more than 5 weddings and have more just waiting for final details. Thanks for the opportunity and for putting all this together for vendors and clients!!
