Although we’ve already unleashed tons of wedding intel, inspiration, and hacks during our sixth annual Weddings Week, it never hurts to be a hyper-prepared planner. (Or uh, not.) Whether you’re an LA girl tying the knot in OC or a SoCal gal looking for more options, consider hitting up the Bride World Expo in Costa Mesa this weekend.
Invading the OC Fair & Event Center (buildings 14 and 16) this Sunday from 10am to 4pm, the expo promises over 130 OC-based bridal brands, photogs, florists, caterers, entertainers, and more wedding resources. There’ll also be bridal fashion shows, giveaways, and even a groom runway contest.
Into it? See the full list of vendors here and the day’s schedule of events here. Entry is $12 (admits one) to $50 (admits up to eight and includes a gift bag and more) at the door, but you can get in for $6 when you buy them in advance here. (Pro tip: Bride World’s got an exclusive code for free admission for up to four people here.)
