Hundreds of attendees got a peek at the latest wedding looks by local designers and a chance to mingle with area businesses in a one-stop-shop at the 2013 Georgia Weddings Bridal Fair at the Georgial International Horse Park on Sunday. 

Caterers, florists, photographers, salons, bakeries, venue sites, musicians, event design companies and more filled the venue with wedding inspiration, style and design for brides to gather ideas and resources for their glamorous one-day event.

Brides also saw a sampling of spring and summer fashions for their entire wedding party during the fashion show. Candlelight Bridals by Gigi supplied the majority of looks for the fashion show, accessorized by Stella and Dot jewelry and Poshissimo by Patty. Men's looks were provided by Belk and Savvi Formalwear. Bridal coifs and make-up were styled by La Ritz and Chad’s Salon.

For door prizes, brides-to-be and couples also snagged a stay at the historic Twelve Oaks Bed & Breakfast in Covington or a groom’s cake from Cakes & Desserts Cafe by Diva’s Delites, beauty and home baskets from Belk, Stella & Dot jewelry, and a host of gift certificates and special offers from Chad's Salon, Savvi Formalwear, Poshissimo, to name a few.

The fair also collected eight formal dresses for donation to Rockdale Emergency Relief’s Clothes Closet.

Here's a few scenes from Sunday's celebrations.
