Engaged couples, their families and wedding attendants are invited to attend the Olympia-area show. Couples will receive a complimentary copy of South Sound Wedding & Event magazine. Prizes will be awarded to engaged couples during the show. The latest styles in hair, makeup, bridal bouquets, jewlery, wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses and tuxedos will be featured during fashion shows presented at 11:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.
“To help plan their weddings, engaged couples are invited to meet more than 80 Olympia-area wedding professionals at this stylish show,” Paula Lowe, show director and publisher of South Sound Wedding & Event magazine, said.
Couples will meet caterers, disc jockeys, wedding planners, florists, photographers and jewelry designers. They will also meet representatives from wedding and reception venues and bridal and tux shops.
“This is the place to meet highly-skilled wedding professionals from this region. They will help you create the wedding you have always imagined,” Lowe said.
The show is sponsored by Experience Olympia & Beyond and Mixx 96.1 KXXO. Mixx96.1 is a soft rock radio station based in Olympia.
