Event offers options for weddings There’s a lot to a wedding, and brides-to-be should start planning well in advance, said some of the professionals available to them for the Bridal Showcase at the Frank W. Mayborn Civic and Convention Center on Sunday. Amidst two runway shows and a diamond dig, more than 60 vendors offered everything from wedding gowns to throwaway corsages. Silvia Copenhaver, owner of Main Street Bridal in Belton, said brides will start looking for dresses a year out. “All of our gowns are special orders,” she said. “It takes anywhere from three to five months to receive a gown.” “We have sample gowns, and buy-off-the-rack gowns,” she said. “We can take care of the planners and that last minute bride as well.” A lot of girls want lace these days, she said. Also popular are colored gowns, such as blush, champagne and moscato. Illusion backs for gowns are in, she said. “They provide that modesty,” she said. Belva Harvey, owner of Georgio’s Bridal in Waco, said they are also seeing a demand for lace and illusion backs. They have a lot of the Bohemian style gowns, she said, as well as traditional gowns. “We have every style that meets the bride’s need,” she said. Her daughter, Callee Harvey, manages Tie The Knot, a wedding consignment store in Waco. Her prices run from $99 to $900, and sizes from zero to 30, she said. “These are sample dresses from my mom’s shop,” she said. “Some are once-worn.” Karla Vollmer of Cameron, engaged to be married to Matthew Feggestad in April 2016, won a .27 carat brilliant cut diamond in the diamond dig. She and nine other hopefuls sifted through a bin of confetti for the winner. “I felt a stone in my hand, and pulled it in,” she said. The diamond, donated by Lastovica Jewelers, might do for a necklace, she said. Ashley Charette of Moody, engaged to be married in September 2016, was accompanied by her future sister-in-law, Lacey Flynn, also of Moody. Charette said she had looked at gowns, cakes and wedding photographers, and was still looking. She and her future husband are thinking of a honeymoon in Mexico, she said. Flowers were another thing for brides-to-be to look at. Elisa Northen, an employee at Precious Memories in Temple, said she talked to a lot of brides about floral arrangements and bouquets. The boutique section of the store offers clothing, jewelry and other accessories, she said. Carol Hajda, owner of Woods Flowers in Temple, said David Austin roses, peonies and cool water roses are popular for weddings. She showed a beach theme floral arrangement that included sea shells. Greenery is popular for the backs of chairs and along the head table, she said. Some of the vendors were catering to the grooms. Amber Maples, manager of Squires Formal Wear in Waco, said the store rents tuxedos and suits. “We want guys to look sharp on the most important day of their life,” she said.
