MANAWATU WED­DING EXPO

WED­DING FEVER IS SET TO TAKE OVER THE PALMER­STON NORTH CON­VEN­TION CEN­TRE ON SUN­DAY, 7TH JUNE.

My Wedding - - PLANNING -

For those dreaming of a tra­di­tional fairy­tale wed­ding, seek­ing more of a cut­ting edge and con­tem­po­rary af­fair, or even plan­ning a des­ti­na­tion wed­ding, the Manawatu Wed­ding Expo is a must-at­tend event for ev­ery bride and groom.

With expo-only spe­cials, a spec­tac­u­lar cat­walk show and an un­ri­valled ex­hibitor line-up, brides-to-be will be spoilt for choice when it comes to mak­ing those im­por­tant de­ci­sions. Over one hun­dred com­pa­nies from around New Zealand will gather to­gether un­der one roof to show­case ev­ery as­pect of a wed­ding … from cakes and cater­ing to gowns and suit hire, pho­tog­ra­phers, venues, mu­sic, in­vi­ta­tions, florists and much more. You will need sev­eral hours to see it all! The Expo of­fers ul­ti­mate in­spi­ra­tion for en­gaged cou­ples na­tion­wide plan­ning their per­fect day.

This is a one-stop shop for all your wed­ding-plan­ning needs, elim­i­nat­ing the need to spend weeks, or even months, run­ning around town, com­par­ing web­sites and mak­ing phone calls. Here you can speak di­rect to the peo­ple you need to, look at pho­tog­ra­phers’ al­bums, ask ques­tions, feel fab­rics, com­pare pa­per thick­ness, sam­ple cakes and try on ac­ces­sories.

Re­nee Mur­ray from Pea­cock Pro­mo­tions, or­gan­is­ers of the Expo, says: “Some­times the most im­por­tant thing to a bride is the abil­ity to get on well with some­one like their pho­tog­ra­pher or cel­e­brant. As the Expo gives you a chance to meet some­one with­out nec­es­sar­ily book­ing their com­pany, you can find out who has the per­son­al­ity suited to your needs … then you can book with con­fi­dence.

“An added bonus of at­tend­ing the Expo,” she went on to say, “is that many of the ex­hibitors of­fer spe­cial expo-only packages and dis­counts to vis­i­tors who speak to them on the day. So not only can you en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence, but you may find your­self sav­ing hun­dreds of dol­lars as well.”

Tick­ets are pur­chased on ar­rival at the door and in­clude en­try into the Fash­ion Pa­rades, which run at 11am, 1pm & 3pm. Head to their Face­book page (www.face­book.com/ManawatuWed­dingExpo) to keep up with the news, ex­hibitor spe­cials and some great wed­ding ideas.
