- Weddings can be a lot of fun, but many brides and grooms say it takes a lot of planning to make the big day one to remember. Sometimes that means numerous trips to find a location for the wedding as well as the dress, but brides-to-be found all they needed for their big day in one setting.
Just about every girl envisions what they're wedding would look like. From how their make-up will be done, to getting their make-up getting done, to what their dress looks like and how the cake will taste.
You could find all of that at the 2015 Magical Moments Bridal Expo in Rhinelander Saturday.
"This is a great event to come to because everybody's here. Everything you need for your wedding is right here, one spot. They don't have to go door to door. They're right here to get everything they need for their wedding," said Lund & Taylor Bridal Gallerie Owner Mary Taylor. "Their attire, their catering, their venue, their photographer, anything they need for their wedding they're going to find right here."
Taylor has been holding the event for 13 years.
"We started out doing it at another location, but when we moved downtown we have a big enough area to do it right here in our store, which is great for us. We don't have to haul dresses for our fashion show," Taylor said.
The crowd of women and men had the chance to see some beautiful dresses and a little show.
The owner of the bridal gallerie says this is perfect timing for most girls who are planning ahead.
"A lot of girls get engaged at Christmas time or New Year's Eve or even Valentine's Day. It's a great time of year… in the bridal business it's a slower time of year, so it's a nice time to get everybody together," said Taylor. "For the next year girls should be planning at least a year ahead. So this is always a good time of year to start getting ready."
Taylor says plenty of people from the area came to the event, but some people traveled as far as Madison and Illinois.
"They come because they're having their destination wedding here," Taylor said. "They're coming to get what they need for their wedding. So we get girls from all over the area."
If you missed it this year, well there's always next year.
