To kick off the new year, and kick off your wedding preparations, Black Press Media is hosting a bridal fair that will help you check off that wedding to-do list.
It’s that time of year when soon-to-be brides and grooms will start to scour the Okanagan Valley for beautiful venues, florists, caterers and unique services for their big day, and we’ve created the perfect spot to do just that.
Join Black Press Media as we host a wedding and events affair Sunday, Jan. 6, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Okanagan College Centre for Learning building (1000 K.L.O. Road, Kelowna).
The venue will be decorated with stunning features to replicate the look and feel of a wedding or event. Walk in and you’ll see the room decorated with seven wine barrels holding floral decor, wine bottles from Vibrant Vine and soft accent lights. Accents of tulle, eucalyptus and lavender will line the staircase for an aromatic atmosphere.
