Brides have been dreaming of their special moment for a long time and on Saturday they got some help with planning their special day.
 
Evaline's Bridal showcased dresses from traditional to trendy.
 
The premier bridal show held at the Covelli Centre in Youngstown gave women a chance to plan and check out vendors to help make every moment unforgettable.
 
Bling is big for many brides searching for their dream dress, and color was on display. 
 
There were body hugging dresses with opera gloves, some had dramatic side slits, others ball gowns and gold glamour is in, as well as black bridal dresses and black bridal party dresses.
 
"We actually ended up getting a lot of dresses from Europe. We are bringing in floral's for brides. We're bringing in color wedding gowns," said Owner of Evaline's Bridal Lori Dubasik. 
 
Many brides are watching what they spend with inflation raising prices for almost everything folks buy, however the women planning their weddings are willing to go all out and spend more on their dream dress, and wedding venue. 
 
"I'm definitely form fitting, kind of outgoing kind of dress. I don't really like anything too simple, but there are a lot of really cute ones here. I like all sparkle and glam," said Lauren Mutsavage.
Others planning weddings say the venue and ambiance is important.
 
"The floral arrangements and decor at the venue. We are getting married in December so I really want that holiday feel at our venue," Alyssa Greece said.
 
Another trend is to buy one dress for the wedding and another for the reception.
 
An overskirt with sparkling silver jumpsuits under them were also featured for wedding receptions. 
 
One major way to conserve costs is a more intimate guest list with people you are closest to or a destination wedding.
 
Rondinelli Tuxedo tells us grooms are also looking for ways to stand out. 
 
"We have a lot more vibrant colors that are coming out, like hunter green that we have. We've also got a brand new velvet tux which seems to be pretty popular right now. Anything to help the grooms stand out, and I think that's great," Rondinelli Tuxedo Sales Associate Cheyla Gaskell said. 
 
Coles cupcakes and cookies had samples to taste.
 
By Request offers different packages some include a two person team, full room light-scaping, and a photo booth and more.
 
The owner of Evaline's Bridal tells us this Bridal Show brings vendors together in one location to help take stress out of your big day.
 
"I feel like after the pandemic people have had a lot more time to plan. i feel like their inspiration boards, their visions, and what they are telling us they want is over the top, and I'm glad to be able to bring all these wedding professionals in this room together," Lori Dubasik added.
