Admission is $12, and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the local chapter of the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society. Children 12 and under are admitted at no charge; strollers are permitted on the exhibit floor.

The show features dozens of local vendors representing every product and service a bride might need, making it possible to plan an entire wedding in one afternoon. Attendees can sample fare from caterers and bakers, and dozens of door prizes will be given away. A runway style show will feature the newest trends in wedding attire, and Paul's Jewelry provides the grand prize for one lucky bride: a Mikimoto cultured pearl necklace with matching pearl and diamond earrings. The winner need not be present to win.

For more information, pick up IND Media's Acadiana Brides magazine at dozens of Acadiana retail locations or click here for details. Acadiana Brides is also available online in flip format on the publications shelf of the website.

Advance tickets are available through Ticketmaster or at the Cajundome box office, where tickets will also be sold day of show. For more information, contact Robin Hebert at (337) 769.8603 or by email: [email protected].
