Rotary Bridal and Events Fair a success

THE Rotary Bridal and Events Fair had a taste of just about everything for people planing a wedding, be it large or small.

The event is now at least 15 years old and is popular as ever according to organiser Gae Ferris form Rotary.

"Some of out stall holders had to drive through flood to get here, but the weather didn't dampen our enthusiasm," she said.

A number of stall holders didn't get through but with over 30 showing off there wares there was still plenty for wedding planners to take in.

Stall holders represented catering, music, photographic and venue options for all types of weddings.

Of course there were plenty of fashion offerings as well.

The fashion show was put on by Janelle Power of Mary Vidler Bridal with dresses ranging from modern strapless styles to more traditional flowing wedding gowns.

"Country weddings are getting more popular, so in this case they avoid dresses with a long train," she said.

The wedding dresses on show retail from between $250 to $2500.

Nicolie Scrivener and Dean Amos are engaged and haven't set a date for their weeding, but they were at the Bridal Fair yesterday to get some ideas, they said.

There was plenty to think about when planning a wedding, but also a budget, Ms Scrivener said.

There were the big ticket items but plenty of little accessories to think about as well, she said.
