Utah Bride & Groom editors and staff spent the weekend at the 2018 Utah Bridal Showcase. Here are some of our favorite moments, ICYMI. 


Hello, Gelato!

Bon Bon of Salt Lake City, shared their delicious gelato selection with brides-to-be. Can we just say, the Raspberry sorbet was everything.


Photo Booth Fun!

We couldn’t get enough of the photo booths. Their set-ups were elaborate and lively, with interactive photo mirrors, colorful props and even a Volkswagen bus that people could sit in to have their photos taken.

The Antique Limosine

Florals Galore

Cactus & Tropicals‘ floral arrangements lined several of the booths, and were brilliant as always.
