Bridal fair draws a big crowd

When it comes to a formal wedding, or graduation day, everything has to be just right, from the cut of the suit to the gown.

When it comes to a formal wedding, or graduation day, everything has to be just right, from the cut of the suit to the gown.

And Williams Lake has no shortage of home-based and retail businesses to help brides, grooms, graduates and their families make it so.

A total of 37 vendors showing everything from wedding cakes, to shoes, event planning ideas, nail and body care, to honeymoon travel destinations participated in the 2015 Bridal Fair and Fashion Show held Sunday afternoon at the Signal Point Convention Centre.

The afternoon featured a runway fashion show of wedding gowns, party dresses and formal men’s suits from BFF Fashions, It’s “You” Time, Brides and Belles, Ciprani’s Bridal, and Suit Up Men’s Wear at About Face Photography.

Event co-ordinator Ashley Hyde said more than 120 people visited the event that was sponsored by the Women’s Contact Society to raise funds for the Beauty From the Inside Out program which the Women’s Contact Society partners with School District 27 and Interior Health to put on each year for Grade 7 girls.
