PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Hundreds of brides gathered at the Elite Sports Center in Parkersburg Sunday for the 2018 Great Bridal Event. Brides, grooms, family and friends went from vendor to vendor planning all the details for their big day.
Brides and grooms got in for free and could enjoy food samples, a fashion show, discounts from vendors, door prizes and giveaways.
Vendors displayed food, venues, flowers, decor, cakes, honey moons, and music options for all of the Mid-Ohio Valley newly-weds.
Brides say the one stop shop helped get all their finishing touches taken care of.
The Gift Gallery of Vienna had a big display at the event. "We offer delivery and set up, anything that has to do balloons or parties, events, weddings, we can do it. Rose gold is the hottest thing on the market for weddings. We're finding that the bigger the better, brides are liking the huge three foot balloons that we carry. It's been a great event, everybody is very sweet and very excited and the number of people coming through, it's just fantastic."
A fashion show at 3:30 p.m. displayed wedding gowns from Elizabeth Michaels and suits and tuxedos from Horner & Harrison.
