PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) – What’s a better way to enjoy National Marriage Week than with a bridal expo?

Vendors from all across the panhandle came out to take part in the matrimonial festivities.

Weddings can be one of the happiest days for couples but it can also be the most stressful.

Time, money, and months of planning are a necessity to prepare for that perfect day.

There’s a lot of information that’s needed to be wedding-ready, bridal expos are a great way to get all those details in one spot.

“This brand new hotel opened on Panama City Beach, and my company wanted to do a bridal shower here. So, we approached Embassy Suites by Hilton, and now we’re doing a beautiful bridal show to show brides. The best place to get married on the beach is right here,” said Southern Event Productions Owner Angela Snyder.

Over 30 vendors stopped by to take part in the event.

There was something for everyone, whether it was videographers, DJs, bakers, or limousine drivers.

“All the vendors are so talented, and it just comes together. It’s all beautiful and it’s that’s exciting for me and I want them to do well. I love bringing brides together. Their faces are all lit up when they come in,” Snyder said.

It’s a good place to make connections with different vendors and get ideas on how people would like to plan their weddings.

“We actually came down just for the wedding expo. I want to get married on the beach. So this was an obvious first step in figuring out what there is around here, who to talk to, and just general ideas,” said attendee Caity Buford.

At Embassy Suites Hilton, they hosted three weddings last year.

This year they have over 25 confirmations of couples getting married at their venue.

The director of sales and marketing, Barbara Lita, says she loves hosting weddings and events like this because of all the happy faces she sees.

“The people… Without them, we wouldn’t be here. And getting to make an impact on someone’s special day is huge. So that’s my favorite part is the people for sure,” said Embassy Suites by Hilton Director of Sales and Marketing Barbara Lita.

They concluded the expo with a fashion show that showcased some of the newest wedding dresses for sale.
