JONESBORO-- Brides and a few reluctant grooms from all over Region 8 were out and about Sunday at the Bridal Extravaganza at Indian Mall in Jonesboro. There were 31 booths full of things to help any couple plan the perfect wedding.
Sissy Ratliff and her fiance drove from Hardy to visit the Bridal Fair.
"We wanted to get some good ideas, we just started planning a few months ago and we really didn't know where to start and we thought maybe we could get some ideas here," said Ratliff who plans to marry next summer.
And she was in the right place at the right time...lots of brides and a few grooms were out looking for things to help them plan their perfect day.
Most couples want their wedding to be unique and different...and Etta's Fashions in Lepanto offers something many brides might have trouble finding...a customized wedding gown, created just for them.
"We just have a personal touch, we can sit down...and it's not real hectic, we can all sit down and decide what you want," said B
Brandi Booker and her fiance Matt Wilkerson were out looking for ideas for their reception. Their wedding is May 1st, so time is passing fast. Booker says Wilkerson is doing a good job of helping out with their ceremony, which will be held at the Claudia House in Poplar Bluff.
