It’s all about the brides at this year’s St. Eugene Bridal Fair, coming up this weekend.

“The brides can expect a day that is all about them. This year we really want to make it about the brides. It is their special day,” said Avana Gjendem, marketing and event coordinator.

The bridal fair will be held on Sunday, Feb. 2 from 1 p.m. To 5 p.m. at St. Eugene Golf Resort and Casino.

Those who want to make a day of it can come for brunch in the Purcell Grill, starting at 11:30 a.m.

A ticket that includes brunch and entry to the fair is $30 per person; brunch alone is $22; entry to the fair is $10 in advance, and more at the door.

Brides can expect to be spoiled rotten, with each one receiving a goody bag at the door, and many vendors providing gifts for each bride.

What’s more, everyone who attends will have the chance to win.

“We have lots of door prizes. Almost every participant in the bridal fair provides a door prize to be drawn at 4:35 p.m.,” said Gjendem.

There will be close to 40 vendors at the fair, ranging from photographers to venues to fashion to hair and make-up.

“Anything that people need to plan their wedding, we have,” said Gjendem.
