RENO, Nev. — An unique traveling bridal vendor showcase will soon offer brides-to-be in the Reno-Tahoe area a stress-free and celebratory introduction to local wedding professionals.
Designed to be an alternative to endless Internet searches or aimless wandering among booths at bridal fairs, The Marriage Carriage hits the road from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30.
Brides and their guests will be transported by comfortable coach to several tour stops where they can experience event venues in-person and meet in a relaxed setting with wedding vendors, including wedding planners, photographers, florists, invitation designers, DJs, caterers, cake makers and more. Participants will be treated to continental breakfast with mimosas and specialty coffees, lunch, cake samples and wine tasting.
Raffle prizes and exclusive discounts will also be offered, including two all-day ski lift tickets for Mt. Rose Ski Resort.
“Our goal is to showcase local wedding resources and to have a lot of fun while doing so,” said Carolyn Vaught, one of the organizers of The Marriage Carriage and owner of All About Honeymoons, a honeymoon and travel company. “Brides will have the opportunity to talk with vendors, sample their work and tour venues for themselves, all while being pampered and driven around by our team.”
Registration begins at 8 a.m. at The Grove at Southcreek, with planned stops including Tannenbaum, Winters Creek Lodge, The Victorian House, Alfred Angelo and Michael Sons.
Tickets purchased on or before Sept. 25 will be $25 per person. To purchase tickets and view a complete list of participating vendors, visit www.marriagecarriagereno.com.
