The 530 Bride Visits the Chico Bridal Showcase

The Chico Bridal Showcase had a great turn out today, with crowds of local brides and grooms planning their wedding.  Many couples attended with their entourage of friends & family members.  Brides from Chico, Orland, Redding, Red Bluff, Corning, Gridley & other local areas came to book services with the areas premier vendors.  Photographers, caterers, bakeries, wedding venues, florists & event design, DJ's and many other specialty vendors were among the show exhibitors. Couples recieved raffle tickets to enter into the prize wheel, for chances to win everything from wedding packages, gift baskets, photography sessions, and more.  You can imagine the excitement when a bride learns she has won one of these great prizes! There were many bridesmaids & other wedding party members who attended with their bride-to-be and they were there to help with everything from holding the brides bag, writing her information on the various vendor drawing entry forms, & of course tasting cakes & catering samples!

Inspiration Lane offered brides the opporunity to see examples of decor and table-top design by vendors including Cambray Rose Florists, Dream Coordination Group (Salvagno's Event Designers), Jaz Events, Special Times Catering & WeDo Designs.  Nice Work Everyone! Lovely Layers Cakery
