Bakersfield Wedding Show held at Kern County Fairgrounds

Hundreds of brides and grooms plan weddings


"It is wedding season baby! It is wedding season," said Kyle Brown with the Kern County Bridal Association.


With weddings to plan the Kern County Fairgrounds was packed Sunday for the Bakersfield Bridal Show as future Mr. and Mrs. picked out food, flowers, bartenders, limousines, horse drawn carriages and more for their special day.


The event ran from 12:00 - 3:00 p.m., with general admission tickets costing $5 in advance and $10 at the door. 


"Brides are loving it. They're having a great time. They're getting to taste food, get their picture taken at the photo op booth. It's a blast," Brown said.   


With an established history, the Bakersfield Bridal Show has become the biggest bridal show in the area.


"We do it three times a year, 1996 is when we started it. In 2000 is when we started the January show," Brown added.    


For some brides to be, Sunday was all about checking things off their planning list.


"The have businesses here with lighting. I didn't even think about lighting, said Natalie Patlan, a bride at the event. "They  have photographers, catering, event planning, the spa packages - so its great."


One groom was getting an early start on the planning, but still need to nail down the wedding date first. 


"In a few years. I'm nine right now," Cruz Revilla said. "I'm going to turn 10. So probably in the next 15 years."


The next Kern County Bridal Association show will be held this May at the Kern County Museum. More information on that event can be found at
