Love is in Bloom @ NSS!

Tying the knot has never carried with it so many social stationery options for the bride and groom. Customizing the look, the feel, the vibe, the ambiance of the big day - and the honeymoon - has never been as much an adventure. This year’s NSS is proof of this!

The product on the exhibit floor will be a veritable feast for retailers who want to cash in on this category – from the latest wedding invitations, announcements, save the dates, gift tags, packaging and bridal accessories to products for showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties, to travel gear. To outfit the honeymooners in style, the selection is remarkable.

So get ready for some serious bridal buzz @ NSS… Here’s why!

Reporters and camera crews from Get Married will rove the show floor to spot trends, in product and merchandising, as well as interview bridal experts on all sides of the business to be featured on future segments of Lifetime Television’s weekday morning program, hosted by celebrity event designer David Tutera. You can also visit in booth 3932 at the Show.

Educational seminars and trend forecasting will augment the bridal buzz:

The Association of Bridal Consultants(ABC) will exhibit, host an ABC member meeting during the Show, and present a seminar entitled “Wedding Invitations: How to Sell Them Alongside Your Event Planning Services.” Christine Figliuolo of Creations by Christine Events, LLC, will present the seminar. Registration is available online, at, under Programs & Events.

The Knot’s Senior Editor Christa Vagnozzi will reveal this year’s hottest wedding trends, including unexpected color combos, cultural twists on the typical wedding, styled catering presentations, seating arrangements, signature cocktail bars and more. She also will provide insight into how the stationery community can build relationships and better serve the engaged consumer in her program on Monday, May 18. Registration is available online, at, under Programs & Events.

Trends Predicted by Bridal Guide

Bridal trend predictions from Bridal Guide Senior Associate Editor Elena Mauer will be featured in the “Trend Walkway” in the Crystal Palace Lobby of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
