BIG RAPIDS — Wedding bells may be ringing in the near or maybe not so near future for local couples. With more than 20 vendors, the annual Y-102 Bridal Show will offer couples the opportunity to mark a few items off the list of things to do before the big day.

From 1 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 13, at the University Center, on Ferris State University’s campus, 805 Campus Drive, Big Rapids, attendees can find samples from different caterers and demonstrations and examples of work from DJs, photographers, florists and more.

“It’s a lot of fun,” Diane Scarpelli, marketing director for Big Rapids Radio Network, said about the event. “It’s a beautiful show, too. We have some fabulous places that offer services for weddings.”

Attendees can watch a variety of fashion shows, displaying wedding dresses, tuxedos and more, as well as demonstrations, such as how to cover tattoos for the big day.

Scarpelli noted 300 to 400 people generally attend this event, with half of the number being brides-to-be. She said it may be best for families to purchase tickets beforehand as they are cheaper than buying them at the door. Tickets can be found at Y-102, 18720 16 Mile Road, Big Rapids, or participating vendors. A list of vendors can be found on the Y-102 Bridal Show 2019 page on Facebook.
