Bridal Expo

In the past two weeks I have spent countless hours preparing for the Bridal Expo in Rushville.  I have contacted vendors, scheduled advertising, booked the building, fitted models and written gown descriptions.  But I am very pleased with the outcome!  I have 13 vendors scheduled for Sunday, March 2.  They are:
          Rushville Bridal with gowns and tuxes
          Rushville Pharmacy with gifts
          Indiana Carriage with several different horse-drawn carriages
          Sarah Schwendenmen with Paparazzi Jewelry
          J & J Photo Specialties for all you photography needs
          Negangard Tent Rental with tents, tables and chairs
          Candice McDaniel with Pure Romance
          Stacey Berkemeier with Advocare
          Sasha Degner with It Works
          Matt Merhley DJ services
          Miranda Kessler with fibo and clo jewelry and shoes
          Samantha Spaeth with Project 10 Challenge
          J & J Winery from Richmond

I think this is a really great combination for brides who are still looking for services.  I was hopeful to have catering, cakes, photo booth and so many more options but I guess that will have to wait until the next show. 

Now, we are hearing of a large storm heading our way for Sunday.  So pray that it holds off until later in the day and come see everyone at the show!  There is a $1.00 admission that will go to the Rush County Players theater group.

Vintage Inspired Wedding Gowns

While attending the National Bridal Market in Chicago and the Dallas Bridal Market, the word vintage kept popping into my head.  There were so many beautiful gowns that fit into the description of vintage.  So if your perfect idea of a wedding is vintage, 2014 or 2015 is the year for you.

Here is just a very small sampling of gowns available at Rushville Bridal.

Mary's Bridal Vintage looks:
Style 6176

A beautiful satin gown with lace overlay.  The tank straps and hemline feature delicately scalloped edges.  Available in white or ivory in sizes 2-30 starting at $625.

Another great gown from Mary's is style 3Y289.  Which famous movie star can you imagine wore a gown like this? 

Although this gown is not currently in stock at Rushville Bridal, I just couldn't resist adding it to this blog.  It can be ordered in white or ivory in sizes 2-30 starting at $675.  Fur stole is not included but may also be ordered..

Or maybe you prefer this gown from Mori Lee with an illusion neckline.  This neckline is making a huge comeback for 2014. Prices start at $1999. 

Do you see vintage as a tea length gown?  This is the one for you from Moonlight Bridals.

Perhaps a more traditional ball gown with a vintage feel. This gown is designed by DaVinci Bridals.

Does vintage have a certain color like this champagne gown from Symphony Bridal?  Also available in white and ivory starting at $979.

Whatever you picture as the perfect vintage gown, we would love to help you to find it!

And lastly I will leave you with some pictures collected by Bridal Guide Magazine.  Some of these gowns are not available at Rushville Bridal but I am sure we can find a close second.
