PRINCETON – Calling on all brides! Looking for inspiration before the big day or need face-to-face advice from the planning experts? Stop stressing, you’re in luck. A Hundred Acres Orchard and Market, along with the Bureau County Republican, is hosting a Happily Ever After Bridal Expo on April 7 at the orchard.

“This will be a wonderful event not only for brides, but for family, friends and other members of the bridal party. Event-goers can expect to see a wide variety of vendors, which will be integral to helping brides plan their special day,” said Pam Pratt-Marsh, sales development manager at the BCR.

This is the place to see and talk with vendors about the vision for your wedding and let them guide you to the decisions that best fit your plans. Also, view the latest bridal fashion at the style show, featuring Satin ‘n Lace Bridal and Formal Shoppe.

This year’s event will have all brides covered. Anything from cakes, music, hair and make up, food, photography and insurance. The expo will get brides on the right track before their big day. Participating vendors include: Flowers by Julia, Kramer’s Kitchen & Catering, Impact DJZ, Imprintable Memories, Nicole Isaacson Photography, Cake & Bake, Tiers of Joys, Ooh La La Salon and Spa and much more.

“I’m also really excited about the give-aways and prizes, which brides will have an opportunity to win. We have some gift certificates, a wedding day basket and so much more. The grand prize is valued at about $1,000, and any bride would be absolutely tickled to win it,” Pratt-Marsh said. “We hope to have a great turn-out, and we look forward to meeting all the new brides and the special people in their lives.”
