If you're planning a wedding and looking for ideas for your special day, plan to attend the sixth annual Bridal Extravaganza on Sunday at the Grand Wayne Convention Center. The event is presented by Fort Wayne Weddings magazine.
“It's a one-stop shop for the most fabulous things you are going to need for your special event,” said Kathy Colclesser, Fort Wayne Newspapers retail advertising director.
More than 125 vendors can help you plan every facet of your wedding, starting from the moment you get engaged, Colclesser said.
Tux shops and bridal salons will showcase the latest styles for brides, grooms and attendants.
Need help with invitations and gifts for the bridal party? You'll find vendors eager to help with even the smallest details of your wedding.
Caterers and venues will be there, too, some with samples of food.
If you're looking for entertainment for the reception, DJs and bands will be able to share their services. A harpist will perform throughout the afternoon.
Photographers and videographers can help you plan how to best record your special day.
Travel agents there can assist you if you are contemplating a destination wedding or are trying to plan a honeymoon.
In addition to the vendors, there will be three stage events. Bridal salon One Fine Day will present a fashion show at 1:15 p.m.; American Style Ballroom will present a dance demonstration at 2:15 p.m.; and bridal salon The Bride to Be will present a fashion show at 3 p.m.
The first 500 brides-to-be will get a free tote bag with a wedding planner inside and a copy of Fort Wayne Weddings magazine.
