Brides and grooms with weddings in 2015 can take the worry out of wedding planning during the first Something New Bridal Event, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 3 at the Lerner Theatre.
Gateway Mile stakeholders Stephenson’s of Elkhart and Ruthmere developed the initial ideas for Something New to put greater focus on the wedding retail, services and facilities located near downtown Elkhart. The Crystal Ballroom, Edgerton’s Travel Service, The Elkhart Truth, Wedding Day magazine and U93 also are participating as event sponsors.
A unique feature in Something New will be the six “Wedding U” presentations throughout the day, covering everything from planning, food and drink pairings, travel arrangements, and home decorating. Two fashions shows directed by Danny Reynolds of Stephenson’s will occur at noon and 2 p.m. in the theater.
A full directory of presenters and vendors is available at SomethingNewBride.com. Admission is $5 per person, and door prizes valued at $50 or more have been donated by each vendor. Additionally, attendees will be eligible for three top prizes – credits for goods or services from Edgerton’s Travel ($1,000), Stephenson’s ($500) and Ann Marie Limousine ($250) – and the winners will be drawn at 3:30 p.m. in the theatre.
