Rockford's Bridal Show at the Radisson showcases many wedding essentials
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
A local expo helped area brides get everything they need for the big day.
The Radisson Hotel hosted its third annual Bridal Show on Sunday, showcasing a variety of top wedding vendors.
Hundreds of people came out to see new trends in 2016, from cakes and decorations to dresses and accessories.
One of those trends? Having hair and makeup come to you at the wedding site. Organizers say this expo is a great way to promote local vendors.
"This is their best way to see the most number of people for the least amount of money per dollar wise," said George Lerret, the event organizer at the Radisson. "I think it's very difficult to advertise in this market but you have a target audience by doing these shows."
More than 25 vendors participated in the show, all of which were local businesses.
