You’ve met, fallen in love and have decided to get married. Now come dreams of a wedding and a lifetime together.

Your wedding day is a day to cherish and share all your love, romance and fun with the people who mean the most to you.

However, planning your dream wedding can often be an overwhelming experience. With all the decisions that need to be made in order to make the day perfect, it’s great to have an event that facilitates the process.

The upcoming 11th annual Wedding Fair sponsored by Ivy Photography, is Nevada County’s only full service bridal event all under one roof.

“The fair was designed to unite all the retailers and vendors needed to plan a wedding right here in Nevada County,” states Louise Ivy of Ivy Photography. “Having everyone in the same location give the brides and their families a chance to compare and gather ideas and it also provides an opportunity for local venders to network among themselves” she continues.

There is no admission to this years Wedding fair on Sunday, February 7 from 10:00 A.M to 3:00 P.M. at the Miners Foundry on Spring Street in Nevada City. A festive atmosphere prevails making the Wedding Fair fun for all that attend. Many door prizes will be offered by participating vendors, and caterers will have tempting morsels for fairgoers to sample. There will be live music as well as disc jockeys, and the sound of cooing doves that are available for rental to release after the wedding ceremony.

Of course no wedding fair would be complete without florists, cakes, wedding gowns, tuxedoes and photographers. Some people like to climb up into the white antique carriage, while others want to discuss hair and make-up with representatives from local salons.

There will be party rental companies, gifts and invitations, as well as suggestions regarding locations for the ceremony or reception.

Because there are often many parties associated with weddings, the Wedding Fair vendors can help with rehearsal dinners, bridal showers and other gatherings that can be time-consuming to put together. We invite you all to join us this year to see all that our community has to offer to plan the wedding of your dreams.
