This is a bridal fair with a twist! Congratulations! You’re engaged and everything bridal is headed your way! So many things to think about and plan! The Kallista Park Bridal Fair at Medella Vina Ranch hits the mark - all your wedding vendors are in one place...but here’s the twist….it also covers bridal shower ideas and bridal party gifts! So head on over March 8, 2020 between 1pm - 3:30pm. Here’s what you will find...
Kallista Park is Tucson’s Secret Garden
Kallista Park at Medella Vina Ranch has often been called Tucson’s secret garden. Medella Vina Ranch is a 40 acre ranch dedicated to health, wine and horses….but...once you step through the doors into Kallista Park you will find 4 acres of lush green grass, softly lighted gardens and trees plus 5 fountains that enhance this romantic setting. This venue has a beautifully appointed bridal suite, a groom’s room and two ramadas that allow guests to spread out and enjoy all the park has to offer.
What you will find at the bridal fair
This is your day - all the vendors attending are here for you so enjoy the process! Grab a glass of champagne and chat it up with photographers, florists, DJ, wedding planner, hair and make up and of course browse through wedding gowns by Free Ever After.
Bridal fairs provide a great opportunity to grab a great deal. Many vendors provide discounts if you book their services that day. Take your time and look closely at what they have to offer. A good tip is to gather information from your “must have” vendors...then circle back and have conversations with your favorites! Schedule appointments and take that off your long to-do-list!
