If you're planning on walking down the aisle sometime soon you'll want to check out the 2014 Bridal Expo hosted by the WSBT Radio group.


The 28th annual Bridal Expo, hosted by the WSBT Radio Group, will be held at Notre Dame's Joyce Center from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday.

The expo boasts more than 40 vendors from all over the state, including caterers, photographers, bridal gown stores, wedding cake bakeries and more. 

The expo will also hold several fashion shows, featuring the latest trends in bridal couture.

"Today primarily really is wedding gowns. We have some bridesmaids', we have a couple of mother-of-the-bride dresses, but it is mostly wedding gowns," said Marci Sears, fashion show coordinator, "because we found that that's what people really come to see."

More than 2,000 people are expected to attend the expo, which features free samples, prize drawings and some special offers.

"I think we will see a record crowd today," Sears said. "We've got great weather and people really love the Notre Dame show because they know they're going to see a good variety of vendors and quality vendors. And we put on a great show every year."

Visitors should enter the Joyce Center from Gate 1. 

Tickets cost $3 at the door.
