FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Indiana's NewsCenter) - Let's face it, planning a wedding can be difficult. However, about 1,000 brides-to-be made that journey a little easier at the 4th Annual Bridal Extravaganza on Sunday.

The Bridal Extravaganza featured more than 140 of the area's premier bridal vendors.

"I figured it would be a good spot to get some ideas and look around... see flowers and maybe dresses, table decorations that kind of thing," said Bride-To-Be Victoria Jensen of Springville, Indiana.

Jensen's fiance is Fort Wayne Native Michael Goodwin.

The Groom-To-Be said it wasn't a big deal for him to make time for the bridal show.

He said it had its perks.

"Definitely a lot of free food, cake so... (laughs) that's a plus," said Groom-To-Be Michael Jensen.

It's only been about two months since the happy couple got engaged on New Year's Eve.

However, Jensen has already tied the knot on three major wedding plans.

"One of my high school friends is going to be my photographer so a lot of the booths I really can't look at cause I got a great photographer already. We already have a venue set-up for both the reception and the wedding," happily explained Jensen.

Two unique fashion shows highlighted the event. American Style Ballroom demonstrated the perfect dance steps for a memorable first dance as husband and wife. A number of the area's top caterers offered food samples.

New for this year was the Groom's Lounge presented by Champion Windows.

"It's great. It's a good place to get away. The game's on," said Hoagland Native Corbin Scheumann referring the Purdue vs. Ohio State Men's Basketball game.

The relaxing area featured blackjack and poker tables, a big screen television to help grooms take a break from wedding planning.
