Guest speaker Renee Strauss, star of the reality TV show Brides of Beverly Hills, offered expert advice on how to “walk up the aisle and show off your waistline.”

Strauss said many brides hold their bouquets in such a way that hides the waistline. She advised them to extend their arms downward while still holding their bouquets.

Strauss said she understands what brides go through which is why she takes time outof her busy schedule to attend bridal fairs.

“Bridal shows are a fantastic opportunity to see all the things that are available to you,” she said.
