Walking down the aisle and exchanging marriage vows with another person is one of the most important decisions you will make in your life. Many couples have long envisioned the moment they will marry and they carry with them a dream of how the day might proceed. This can make planning a wedding complicated. Finding the perfect dress, flowers, venue, music and other details can be a stressful process.

Hawkesbury Golf and Curling representatives hope to make things easier. The Hawkesbury Golf and Curling Club will be hosting its first ever bridal show, which will be held in the club’s reception hall on November 6.

The hall will be decorated in bridal whites, with drapery hanging from the ceiling and a few tables dressed in gleaming china and fragrant flowers.

More than 35 local companies will be attending the show to present some of the products and services necessary to pull off your dream wedding.

“Bridal by Almor” is coming to the show a pop-up bridal store, selling discounted wedding dresses in a variety of sizes and styles.

Representatives from Markor Jewellery will be on hand to discuss ring options and to showcase some of their products, which include engagement rings set with gleaming Canadian-mined diamonds.

Other vendors include local DJs, photographers, jewellers, spas, event planners and honeymoon specialists.
Starting at noon there will be a fashion show featuring swimwear, lingerie and leisure wear.

Hawkesbury Golf and Curling Club event coordinator Andréanne Roy told The Review that the inspiration to host the event struck her when she was looking for a bridal show to promote the golf club’s reception hall. After failing to find a similar event in Prescott-Russell, she decided to host her own show and use it to showcase the golf club’s reception hall and all of the local services that are available for couples looking to marry.

“I usually want my brides to be able to find everything they need locally. You don’t need to go to Ottawa or Montreal to plan for your wedding,” said Roy.

It’s free to attend the bridal show, which is open to everyone, regardless of their marital status. There will be food tastings, wine sampling and discounts available at the show, which runs from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. Most of the vendors will be hosting contests, with a variety of prizes and discounts.

The Hawkesbury Golf and Curling Club is located at 1150 Golf Club Road, in Hawkesbury.
