Ocean City Bridal Show takes over Seacrets, April 9
(April 7, 2017) Wedding professionals and dozens of vendors to help with planning are slated to attend the 14th annual Ocean City Bridal Show at Seacrets, on Sunday, April 9, from 1-4 p.m.
“Wedding planning should be fun,” said Sean Rox, event organizer and owner of Rox Beach Weddings along with his wife, Cassandra. “The beachy and laid-back ambience of Seacrets is the perfect backdrop for brides to share ideas and make new friends.”
The OC bridal show provides the chance to meet top wedding experts from a number of industries including hotels, restaurants, deejays, officiants, caterers, makeup artists, photographers, videographers, salons, hair stylists, florists, wedding cake vendors, weight loss specialists, entertainment providers and wedding favor creators.
Approximately 30 local businesses such as Sweet Disposition, Lighthouse Sound, Delaware Seaside Bride, Miss Patti Cake, Nassau Valley Vineyards, Carousel Hotel and Off the Hook Restaurant Group are slated to attend.
Each bride will receive a complimentary gift bag in addition to free appetizers and dessert samples.
Most vendors will be giving away prizes and gifts including a free Caribbean cruise for two courtesy of Rox, who is also a wedding officiant.
DJ Armando is back to provide tunes and give dance demonstrations throughout the event.
Brides 2 Be by Hope Mitchell of Lewes, Delaware is slated to host a bridal fashion show around 3 p.m. on the main stage in Morley Hall in addition to producing a men’s formal wear display.
“Sand, sun, lively music, tropical food and drinks. A view of the bay – what’s not to like?” Rox said.
The event in Ocean City averages about 325 guests each year, which attracts destination brides from as far as New York, North Carolina and Ohio. Last year, 344 people including 137 brides were in attendance, he said.
“About half are from Delmarva,” Rox said. “We usually have quite a few Pennsylvania brides.”
