When the founder of the top wedding resource media company in the world considers something “the best,” people listen. Carley Roney, the founder and editor-in-chief of The Knot came to Atlanta to participate in The Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta, and declared it the USA’s best. “I’m so excited to be at the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta, this is the best bridal show in the country,” said Roney in a video clip posted to the Extravaganza’s facebook fan page. “I travel almost weekly to wedding shows all across the country, and oversee all of our wedding information products, so I’d like to think I know what I am talking about.”
More than 1000 registered to attend the January 30, 2011 show at downtown Atlanta’s 200 Peachtree special event and conference center featuring more than 120 exhibitors, a professional design trends table theme showcase, live fashion shows, wedding cake and photography galleries and presentations by industry trend leaders such as Roney and wedding gown and design guru Jorge Perez.

“The Bridal Extravaganza was by far the most beautifully-detailed and fun bridal show I’ve been to in the past year,” wrote bride to be Manisha Panjwani in an e-mail following the show she attended.
“I’ve done a lot of bridal shows , but the Bridal Extravaganza of Atlanta blew me away this year,” said BB Webb, the owner of Carl House a wedding venue and special event facility north of Atlanta. “Just the caliber of the brides….the vendors, the way it was organized, the whole way it was planned, Donna did an amazing job with her team and everyone there was friendly and organized. I can’t wait until the one in August.”
