Grand County / Bridal Showcase: Here comes the bride and everything she needs

From Winter Park / Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce

If you’re dreaming of a wedding in the mountains of Colorado, plan to spend May 31 and June 1 at the Rocky Mountain Wedding Showcase in Winter Park and the Fraser Valley. This free event offers one-stop shopping for mountain destination brides to plan their wedding by providing a showcase of local service providers and wedding venues in Grand County.

The Welcome Reception on May 31 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. is a great time to meet representatives from wedding venues and set up a site tour. The Showcase on June 1 from noon to 5 p.m. at Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash will feature over 30 exhibitors such as florists, musicians, caterers, lodging, photographers and wedding coordinators.

A favorite highlight of the Showcase is the food and wine tasting of local fare, including gourmet wedding cakes, and live wedding music.

A new highlight at this event will be the Bridal Gown Sale on June 1. Bridal World will have over 50 of the latest 2008 formal and informal gown styles available to try on and purchase.

Planning your “I do” space in Colorado’s Wide Open Spaces in beautiful Winter Park and the Fraser Valley couldn’t be easier at the Rocky Mountain Wedding Showcase and you might win some great prizes, including a romantic weekend getaway or $1,000 cash.

Registration is free. Contact the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber at (970) 726.4118.

It’s also a wonderful networking opportunity for locals to check out other service providers in their industry. Referrals in the wedding business happen a lot up here.

So, it’s nice to say you’ve actually tasted their food or seen their work when referring.

The 2008 event is sponsored by the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce, Winter Park Resort, Devil’s Thumb Ranch, Grand County Colorado Tourism Board, Iron Horse Resort, Wildhorse Inn, Party Time Rentals and Pick Me! Floral and Event Design.
