Bridal Expo in Old Sacramento July 19

Bridal Expo in Old Sacramento July 19

Old Sacramento hosts more than 200 weddings a year, according to their Business Association, plus there are many wedding product offerings and scenic backdrops among its merchants.  It's only natural that a bridal show would be held there.  

Bridal Expo is Sunday, July 19, aboard the Delta King Hotel on Front Street in Old Sacramento.  The show hours are 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. 

This unique show includes a Treasure Hunt for wedding couples. They will find clues that will lead them from one spot to the other, until they find the Treasure - a honeymoon stay in Italy.

Wedding pros will be on hand to give the couples in-depth information to help them be better equipped to plan their weddings. Services and products represented include photography, videography, catering, venues, gowns, corsets, djs, music, florists, cakes, jewelry, beauty products and more.
