The Original Wedding Expo
The Original Wedding Expo unites local wedding vendors with soon-to-be brides and grooms, presenting a day filled with gowns, cakes, and flowers. Marriage-minded attendees field questions to dozens of merchants fluent in wedding planning and etiquette, settling quandaries over what's appropriate to throw at newlyweds––rice, birdseed, or baseballs. DJs and live bands provide a soundtrack as guests chat with photographers. At 2:00 p.m., a fashion show exhibits elegant and fun dresses for the entire bridal party, presenting suitable attire for best friends, family members, and over-sentimental mannequins. The expo automatically enters registered attendees into raffles for grand prizes such as a honeymoon, limousine or tuxedo rentals, and a designer wedding cake.
