For the past 25 years, the Crystal Coast Bridal Fair has provided a one-stop shopping experience for future brides and grooms.

Once again, the show will offer that opportunity. It’s set for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 14, at the Crystal Coast Civic Center in Morehead City. Admission is $8 per person.

In years past, the fair featured wedding vendors and a special bridal fashion show, but according to Pam Kaiser, with Pam’s Specialized Catering, one of the event sponsors, says that will change this year.

 There will be no fashion show. Instead, shoppers will be able to watch floor shows throughout the day where models will display wedding dresses and other attire.

The theme for the show is vintage. The models will be showing dresses that date back to the 30s.

“I am looking forward to something different,” Ms. Kaiser said. “The gowns that the girls are wearing are just as important as the floor show.”

Another difference in this year’s show is the addition of a Groom’s Room, hosted by BOB 93.3, one of the event’s sponsors.

Ms. Kaiser said this room is all about the grooms. They will have something to do, such as playing video games and eating hot wings, while the brides shop and browse through the vendors.

There will entertainment from Carteret Community Theatre, West Carteret High School and Croatan High School, as well as door prizes.

One lucky shopper will have the chance to win a $250 gift certificate to the vendor of that person’s choice. The shopper must be present to receive the winnings.
