- $15 for admission for two to the Bay Area Wedding Fair on August 25 (a $30 value)
Beginning at 11 a.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel Milpitas, the event gives the full spectrum of wedding-production vendors a platform to show off their expertise. Soon-to-be-weds can peruse the booths and network with each of the representatives on hand, from makeup artists and gown designers to cake bakers and DJs. Amid all the handshaking and treat-sampling, several events-within-the-event are scheduled to take place, including a sale on overstock gowns, a silent auction for charity, and live fashion shows. All brides in attendance receive a $50 gift certificate from SavvyBride.com, and the first 50 win a Las Vegas getaway for two for three days and two nights. The event closes up shop at 4 p.m.
