Registration is open for the Wedding Show at Gallipeau Centre

If your future plans include a wedding, the smart thing to do is quickly register for the second annual Smiths Falls Always and Forever Wedding Show on Oct. 23. and then make sure you show up on that day at the Gallipeau Centre.

Event organizers Jacqui Stanzel and Barb Willoughby have put together a one-of-a-kind prize – a free wedding! They’ve asked all their show vendors to contribute services (and nobody said ‘no’). The winning package will include the Gallipeau Centre ballroom as the venue, a $3,500 meal for up to 80 guests, a wedding cake for 80, the bride’s bouquet plus bouquets for four attendants and four boutonnieres for the guys. Also included are services from a makeup artist, a hairdresser (including eyelash extensions for the bride), a spa package, a DJ, an event planner for the day, men’s wear, and a $500 coupon to go towards a wedding dress. And that’s just a partial list.

The draw is will be done around 3 p.m. and the winning bride-to-be will be notified shortly after. You don’t have to be onsite at the time of the draw to win, but you must have attended the show — registering isn’t enough to get you name in the draw.

So far, 90 have registered as guests, and 33 vendors have signed on to distribute and show their wares; even though there are still a couple of weeks to go, don’t hesitate too long – it’s free to register. A fashion show is planned with models walking between the two ballrooms at the Gallipeau Centre, and a videographer will circulate throughout the day, catching moments and emotions.

Stanzel’s wide grin when she talks about the show belies the long hours she and her partner have already put into organizing it — but she doesn’t regret a minute. “It’s good to have a big event in Smiths Falls. We want to show others what Smiths Falls people can do,” she says. She admits the organizing is stressful, but loves every minute of “bringing all parts of a wedding to one event.”

Some show-goers will take what they’ve seen at the show, go home and create their own day; others will go all-out and make use of the vendors and ideas presented.

Stanzel, herself, eloped…as did her daughter! That’s a bit of irony considering the path her life has taken — organizing wedding shows! She was married in North Gower with just an attendant for her, and one for her husband. “Then we went to the Chateau Laurier and called everyone,” she laughs.

She and Willoughby have “been in planning mode” since the last show and her prediction is this will be a bigger and better show.

The Always and Forever Wedding Show takes place Sunday, Oct. 23 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Gallipeau Centre, 361 Queens Street, Smiths Falls. To register, go to www.eventbrite.ca/e/always-forever-wedding-show-brides-please-register-for-the-show-registration-is-free-tickets-26982546523?aff=eac2
