Today I received what my family calls "fun mail" (not bills or junk mail). I received an invitation to a shower -- my second invite this month. I suppose it's that time of the year, shower time! Following rapidly by wedding time! If you're looking forward to being more than a guest at a future wedding maybe you should spend the time you aren't attending wedding showers attending bridal expos. There are two coming up in the county.
First up is the 2017 Ramada Bridal Expo this Sunday, Feb. 19 at the Ramada, 101 South Progress Avenue, Pottsville from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Brides can pre-register here for an extra treat when they attend the expo. But even if you don't pre-register there will be lots of vendors, door prizes, cake and hors d'oeuvres samples, music, bridal welcome bag (while supplies last) and of course a bridal fashion show. Admission is FREE.
Next is the Bridal Show at the Walk In Art Center, 220 Parkway, Schuylkill Haven on March 12 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Along with the wedding vendors there will be a diamond cake dig, fashion show, food and bake sale, demonstrations, trend discussions and more. Admission is FREE.
