The Downtown Bozeman Association and downtown retailers present the 2016 bridal walk on Saturday, April 9 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Main Street in Bozeman.

We are rolling out the red carpet for brides and their entourage to plan their Montana wedding in the heart of downtown Bozeman. Stop by The Baxter hotel anytime during the day of the event and receive a map, booklet and a bag of goodies to help you on your way. Then, stroll Main Street and discover nearly 40 participating businesses that can assist you with all of your wedding needs.

Find everything from dresses, rings, invitations, flowers, gift registries and more. Partake in wine and cake tastings, as well as the chance to win in-store giveaways and raffle prizes, including a $500 shopping spree to be used at any of the participating businesses.

Another activity to enjoy during the event is the “Bridal Walk Photography Contest.” This year, 10 bridal-themed photographs will be displayed at many of the participating businesses. These images are taken by local photographers and, along with their displayed images, their contact information and voting ballots will be on hand for participants.

Awards, plaques and prizes will be presented to the winners of the “most scenic,” “most unique” and “best overall” images. Help us give these photographers the recognition they deserve, while finding the perfect photographer for your wedding.

This event is free of charge and will go on rain or shine. Same-day registration will be held in The Baxter hotel’s upstairs ballroom, at 105 West Main Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Maps and booklets can be picked up at any of the participating businesses two weeks prior to the event.
