Ro­mance to reign at Whit­sun­days wed­ding expo

Whitsunday Times - - MOTORING -

LO­CAL bride-to-be Rozie Gra­ham will be among the ex­cited crowd at the Whit­sun­days Wed­ding and Hon­ey­moon Expo held at the PCYC in Air­lie Beach on Sun­day, Fe­bru­ary 23 from 10am un­til 1pm.

Ms Gra­ham got en­gaged to Stephen O’Brien on the sev­enth an­niver­sary of their re­la­tion­ship in Novem­ber last year and she is look­ing for­ward to check­ing out the expo.

“I’ll be head­ing along with a brides­maid or two and we are re­ally ex­cited to see what’s on of­fer,” she said.

“En­ter­tain­ment is some­thing that we need to sort out as well as flow­ers and plenty of other things.”

With the wed­ding expo just around the cor­ner, Whit­sun­days Mar­ket­ing and De­vel­op­ment Limited (WMDL) want to know what the pub­lic’s idea of ro­mance is.

A com­pe­ti­tion on the Visit Whit­sun­days Face­book page is ask­ing lo­cals to share their idea of ro­mance to win one of three ul­ti­mate prizes in­clud­ing a week­end in Air­lie Beach. More than 50 of the re­gion’s lead­ing wed­ding and hon­ey­moon prod­uct and ser­vice providers will exhibit at the expo to pro­vide ex­pert ad­vice to help plan wed­dings in the Whit­sun­days.

From beauty ser­vices, wed­ding venues, cake cre­ators and make-up artists and pho­tog­ra­phers, florists and en­ter­tain­ment ser­vices, the expo will be a show­case of what’s on of­fer for cou­ple’s to plan their dream wed­ding.

On the day, there will be many more prize give­aways, in­clud­ing the ma­jor prize – A Wed­ding Kick­starter pack­age val­ued at over $3800 in­clud­ing a make-up pack­age for the bridal party, a wed­ding cake and a full cer­e­mony voucher from a cel­e­brant.

Other high­lights in­clude a fash­ion show by the re­gion’s fa­mous Haute Cou­ture Bridal de­signer Kim Har­ris and mini bus tours to open houses at wed­ding venues in and around Air­lie Beach.

HAPPY COU­PLE: Lo­cals Rozie Gra­ham and Stephen O'Brien got en­gaged last year and Rozie is off to the Whit­sun­days Wed­ding Expo next week­end to make prepa­ra­tions for their big day later on this year.
