For the first time since it began 10 years ago, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette will expand its popular January Bridal fair to include a fall event Sunday, Aug. 12, 2007.The event will be from 1-5:30 p.m. at the Statehouse Convention Center in Little Rock with the fashion show at 4 p.m.”Many vendors who were with us in January have already planned to attend, and we expect around 120 booths at the fair,” said Promotions Manager Tabitha Cunningham.The Bridal Fair is established as “the place” in Arkansas for brides to go to plan their weddings.”Our goal is to have one place for brides-to-be and their fiances to go to assist them in planning their dream wedding. They can book vendors, see their products or examples of their work and get to know the vendors’ personalities, all of which are important aspects of planning a wedding.”Admission is $5 and includes admittance to the fashion show at 4 p.m. Brides-to-be and grooms-to-be can register for prizes when entering the fair. There will also be a separate registration for those interested in participating in the Almost-Newlyweds game for a chance to win a prize. (Four couples will be chosen randomly at 2 p.m. —the game will follow shortly after.)

Bob Ocken was amazing! He played a major role in making my wedding day

less stressful. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but he is fun and personable. My whole wedding party loved him and loved hanging out with him throughout the day. He was there for me, and made that very clear from the beginning.
