The Great New Zealand Bridal Show 101 Groom in Tow … very few grooms seem willing to brave the strange, occasionally terrifying world of Bridal Expos. With a jungle of vendors where do you start?? , walls of carrot and chocolate delights, rows of facepainting extrordinaires, the photoshop masters, and of course the labyrinth of Satin and Lace. The first time you step into an expo, you can be overwhelmed. With so many photographers, florists, MUA’s and DJs in the area you often don’t know exactly where to look, so you walk around, bewildered, while brides and their posses swarm around you.
