Millsboro Chamber hosting annual bridal show this Sunday

The Greater Millsboro Chamber of Commerce has couples-to-be covered this weekend, as the Chamber will host the 22nd Annual Central Sussex Bridal Show this Sunday, March 12, from noon to 3 p.m. at Cripple Creek Golf & Country Club.

“Every year, we see more vendors, new vendors who have never been in,” said Amy Simmons, the Chamber’s executive director.

This will be the first time the show has been held at Cripple Creek.

“They have a great space,” said Simmons, noting they had moved the show from Millsboro Town Center because they are currently not renting that hall for weddings. “We felt maybe it was best to move it somewhere where brides who were looking for a venue could talk to them about renting.”

Simmons said there will be a bevy of vendors in attendance, including invitation designers, photographers, cake bakers, deejays and photo-booth vendors. The event is sponsored by Chardon LTD Jewelers, who will also be in attendance that afternoon. Candlelight Bridal will also be in attendance and present their annual bridal fashion show.

“This is going to be something very different,” said Simmons of the fashion’s changes from years past. “This is going to be a strolling fashion show, with the girls walking along with the attendees.”

Admission costs $5 per person, with brides-to-be attending free of charge. Brides will receive a bag and a special pin, and will have the chance to win one of many door prizes.

Simmons said she hopes the change of venue will also encourage couples from other areas of the county to attend the bridal show and get a little help planning their big day.

“I just hope everybody has a good time!”
