Kick off the bridal season in style at the Kiss the Brides Expo in northwest Arkansas. On Sunday, Jan. 26, the bridal expo will take over the Holiday Inn & Northwest Arkansas Convention Center in Springdale.

The expo will conveniently house hundreds of Arkansas' top wedding vendors under one roof. Brides can shop the best photographers, caterers, DJs and more while they find inspiration, see the latest trends and find ways to save on their big day. 

Be prepared to get competitive with Kiss the Brides' Ultimate Wedding Challenges which include Battle of the Brides, Kiss The Bride Cake Dive, Wedding Trivia, Dancing with the Brides, Kiss your Bride Kissing Contest and more.

In addition to the booths, the expo includes a fun fashion show featuring bridal gowns and men's tuxedo. Brides can also register to win thousands of dollars in gifts and prizes, including a honeymoon cruise. 

Tickets cost $10 per person. Brides-to-be can register online or print out a $2 off coupon to use on the day of the event. For more info on the expo, head to Kiss the Bride's website
