Spring Bridal Expo to debut at A&M-Commerce

COMMERCE - The Rayburn Student Center at Texas A&M University-Commerce will host a one-stop-shop wedding expo March 4, 2012. The Spring Bridal Expo will serve as a go-to expert center in Hunt County for brides and grooms-to-be.

Although there are various bridal fairs held in Dallas, Forth Worth and Tyler, there is nothing quite like this expo in Northeast Texas. This region, which includes border towns of Oklahoma, has limited wedding planning resources. We want to offer expo attendees access to top-of-the-line businesses in the bridal industry.

“This is a wedding [expo] like no other,” said Connie Mears, associate director of operations and special events. “The student center is equipped to offer state-of-the-art technology, on-site catering, a fashion show and surprise novelties.”

At The Spring Bridal Expo attendees will find all that they need to plan the perfect wedding within a reasonable traveling distance. A special event will be held in The Club on the first level of the student center catered to men who attend the expo featuring businesses for grooms and their wedding party members.

In honor of its debut, The Spring Bridal Expo will not have registration fees for vendors or future brides.

“We purposefully selected not to charge attendees or vendors this year,” Mears said.  “It was more important to offer a venue where services and resources could be made available to our vendors, alumni, community and brides and grooms to be.”

It is our hope that attendees will be able to plan most, if not all, of their wedding in one stop, eliminating the stress and hassle of traveling a great distance and visiting individual business sites. The entire experience of being a bride, including the countless hours spent planning the wedding, should be enchanting, memorable and something to cherish forever.
