Wedding show set to go in Golden

The Golden Civic Centre will be the site of the Wedding, Party and Gift Show

Wedding fever is taking over Golden this weekend when more than 40 vendors set up shop in the Mount 7 Rec Plex on Sunday Oct. 14 for the first Wedding, Party and Gift Show.

“There’s going to be a very wide range. Anything that you can possibly think of that you would need for an event, it will be there,” said Thea Hansen, organizer of the show.

It will be a packed house for this sold out trade show, and will include pastry chefs, jewelry, three DJs, photographers, gift shops, caterers, Tupperware, and even a gentleman who can build you a wedding website.

“You can actually put your guest book and your registry that is all on a page just about you,” said Hansen.

Although branded as a wedding show, there is something there for anyone who is planning any type of party.

“You don’t need to be planning a wedding. Especially with any of the gift vendors, Christmas is coming. Or even if you’re planning a staff function, it doesn’t necessarily have to be a wedding. It can be anything in the future,” said Hansen.

This is an opportunity for people to see what is available in their own backyard. There will be vendors and business representing the entire Columbia Valley, from Kimberley and Cranbrook up to Golden.

It also offers the event goers the chance to win some great prizes, try some samples from the caterers, and check out some of the entertainment. There will even be a bartender handing out some virgin cocktails.

“If you want to be entertained we have belly dancers (performing at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.), and a bridal fashion show at noon,” said Hansen.

The fashion show will feature dresses that are coming up from Cranbrook, and will also have some party wear if you’re looking for something for New Year’s.

“There’s going to be a ton of door prizes to win, some live entertainment, and we’re looking forward to having some fun,” said Hansen.

The prizes themselves have a broad range of appeal, including free oil changes, expensive art and jewelry, gift certificates, and even some one and two-night stays.

“I am very happy with the amount of interest this has gotten. I have also gotten an amazing response from vendors who weren’t able to participate this year. There will be between 40 and 50 door prizes over and above what the vendors are giving,” she said. “It’s worth it to come down just to enter to win.”

The trade show will be running from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Entrance is $2, or by donation either to the Golden Food Bank, or Little Mittens Animal Shelter.
