Hot New Expo Shows Love to Today's Brides & Quinceañeras

Make way for the NY BQE, New York’s premiere expo for today’s modern brides and quinceañeras. Within a visually stunning, stylish and culturally diverse environment, the expo will replicate the real life excitement of a wedding or quince with live entertainment, food and drinks while featuring up to 75 exhibitors in all categories of the wedding and special events industry.  The NY BQE will be held on TODAY, March 10, 2015 from 5:00-9:00 PM at The Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, Queens located at 36-01 35th Avenue, Astoria, NY 11106.  For tickets go to and for more information, please visit


The NY BQE will feature local, regional and national exhibitors offering their services and products at reduced prices, along with valuable planning advice and inspiration to hundreds of brides, quinceañeras and guests. Two such exhibitors set to wow attendees are celebrity fashion designer Adan Terriquez, known for his “Princesas De Jenni Rivera” gowns, and shoe designer Burju Perez of Burju Shoes, whose shoes were worn by the entire celebrity cast of Season 11 of ABC’s Dancing with the Stars and will debut her new and exclusive Bridal collection. Other special show features include an Entertainment Showcase with live ceremony musicians, bands, dance performances and full production DJs; a Beauty Lounge with hairstylists and makeup artists providing complimentary makeovers and on-trend beauty tips; a Yumminess Spread with a food sampling area for appetizers, desserts, and specialty drinks; a Fashion Show with the latest trends in formalwear, shoes, and accessories; all under one roof.


The NY BQE will offer thousands of dollars in door prizes, goodie bags, exhibitor raffles, gift cards, and two spectacular giveaways. The Platinum Quince Giveaway offers one deserving young lady a complete, all-inclusive dream quince. The quinceañera must be nominated by a member of her community and submit a brief letter describing her volunteer work and commitment to serving others by February 28, 2015. The Battle of the Brides, sponsored by Devoted Diamonds is a deliciously messy contest where five eager and determined brides dig through wedding cakes with just one goal: be the bride to find a jewelry box containing her wedding day bling.


The NY BQE serves every woman of every culture, with a focus on the Latino community, the fastest growing demographic in the United States. “With a projected buying power of $1.5 trillion dollars in 2015, it is essential for companies, big and small, to engage the Latino market for their business’ continual growth,” says Karina Jimenez of bluGarden Events. “Sponsors and exhibitors will benefit from a cost-effective and customized inclusion in marketing and branding opportunities that highlights their support of the Latino consumer.” The expo offers participating sponsors, exhibitors and media partners a chance to align their brand with the NY BQE’s mission to engage the $70 billion dollar wedding industry and the Latino market.
