“We have pretty much every aspect covered,” said Amy Simmons, executive director of the Greater Millsboro Chamber of Commerce, which hosts the bridal show. “We have a florist, cake bakers, party planners...”

The event, which is sponsored by Chardon Jewelers in Georgetown, will be held on Sunday, March 13, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Millsboro Town Center. Admission costs $5 per person, with brides-to-be enjoying the event free of charge.

Simmons said door prizes will be given throughout the day by attending vendors. One door prize, courtesy of Hampton Inn of Rehoboth Beach is a ”Romance Package,” complete with champagne and $40 worth of dinner coupons for the Rehoboth Beach area. The grand prize will be provided by Atlantic Sands Hotel & Conference Center and includes gift certificates to Oasis Spa, Di Febo’s, Confucius and Lula Brazil. Simmons said a bride-to-be does not need to be present to win.

Along with nearly 30 vendors, attendees may enjoy a bridal fashion show, beginning at 1:30 p.m., courtesy of Candlelight Bridal.

“Fortier Photography will be there with their photo booth. You’ll definitely want to stop by and have fun with the photo booth,” she added.

Simmons said that, last year, more than 300 people attended the bridal show, and she believes this year will bring a similar crowd.

“I’m hoping that brides will come and find someone in there that can help them with whatever part of their wedding they need help with,” she said. “We want everyone to come to have a relaxing, great day.”
