THE road to the altar is filled with many decisions and one future bride is hoping this weekend’s Central West Bridal Expo will help make a few of them easier.
Natalie Crowe got engaged just over a month ago and said she is looking forward to attending the expo to see what is available for her upcoming nuptials.
“I hope to get an idea of what’s around in terms of dresses, cakes and photographers,” she said.
“There’s so many options so that’s why I’m going to help make some decision in terms of the finer details.”
Miss Crowe said she’ll be taking along her mother and best friends to help wade through some of the options at the expo.
Almost 40 exhibitors will attend the expo with cakes, dresses, decor, venues, photographers, stationary and flowers all on show.
Sugarcraft cake decorating specialist is just one of the suppliers at the expo and owner Chris Cortes said it is a great opportunity for brides to be to find out what is available across the region.
“We’ll have wedding cakes and accessories on display,” she said.
The wedding cake is an essential part of the day and Mrs Cortes said there is a wide range of options available.
“These days you can have anything you want,” she said.
A wedding cake specialist for the last 15 years Mrs Cortes said cake trends do change over the years.
She said these days mud cakes rather than traditional fruit cakes are popular.
The fashion parade will starts at 3pm featuring a range of the latest bridal fashions.
The 2012 Central West Bridal Expo will be held at the Orange Ex-Services’ Club from 10am to 4pm this Sunday.
Entry is $5 per person with proceeds going to Can Assist.
