BROOKINGS – Anyone looking to find vendors for their next wedding will have the opportunity to visit a bridal salon filled with photographers, florists, DJs, makeup artists, stationery designers, and caterers, among others – and even seven local venues from 12 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. pm Nov 14 at Club Room 71 at Dana J. Dykhouse Stadium on the South Dakota State University campus.
Hitch Studio, a wedding planning and wedding stationery design company founded in 2014, will host the event.
After the vendors’ fair from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m., there will be a fashion show from 2 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. with awards ceremony. Prizes will be given to the bride and groom and even the “I Do Crew” with designs for mothers, bridesmaids and family. After 2:30 p.m., the Open House Tour begins from 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., where guests can tour the actual locations. The site visit is not a paid event and is open to the public, while the wedding show requires pre-registration tickets for a fee and is accompanied by a map of the site visits available.
“Hitch Studio Bridal Show really grew out of the idea of giving venues more visibility than they typically get at a bridal show and enhancing the experience that attendees and professionals alike. wedding shoot from a wedding salon.

Now they have the opportunity to bring their families and weddings to help them choose the vendors that are best for them, all in one afternoon, ”Bauman added.
