DOWNTOWN BOZEMAN ASSOCIATION

BOZEMAN –The Downtown Bozeman Bridal Walk returns for its 11th year on Saturday, April 11 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Main Street, where brides and their entourages are invited to plan their Montana wedding.

The Downtown Bozeman Association is hosting the event, along with Main Street retailers and community sponsors including the Bozeman Daily Chronicle; ABC/FOX Cowles Montana Media; XL Country; and Allegra Printing.

“[The] Bridal Walk is a great way to kickoff spring in Downtown Bozeman,” said Ellie Staley, program director of the Downtown Bozeman Association. “We have consistently had great weather and really great involvement from our businesses that can offer everything from rings to gowns, food and more.”

Stop by the Baxter Hotel anytime during the event to register and pick up a guide and a bag of goodies to help you navigate the Bridal Walk. Then, stroll down Main Street and discover nearly 40 participating businesses that can help you with all of your wedding needs.

Partake in wine and cake tastings along the way, and have the chance to win many in-store giveaways and raffles, including a $500 shopping spree to be used at any of the event’s participating businesses.

Another great activity to enjoy during the Bridal Walk is the “Bridal Walk Photography Contest.”

Many of the businesses this year will display bridal-themed images, which have been taken by local photographers whose contact information and voting ballots will be on hand for your planning needs.

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

“We generally get between 250-300 brides who come with their friends and family, so we expect over 1,000 people in downtown for the day,” Staley said.

Maps and booklets can be picked up at any of the participating businesses two weeks prior to the event. This event is free and will go on rain or shine.
