Brides make plans at expo

MERRILL (WAOW) - Blushing brides made their dream wedding plans at the Fantasy Bridal Expo in Merrill on Sunday.

Organizers say hundreds of people attended the show.

There, brides and their wedding parties could sample caterers, book DJ's, pick out jewelry and more.

Event leaders say they wanted to make the event a one-stop shopping stop for the brides.

"This is a great time for planning, especially if you're having a summer or fall wedding," said Dawn Smith, an event coordinator. "I mean we're here, you can sign up for your things right here, so this is great for all the brides."

Research shows wedding expenses are on the rise.

A survey by found couples spent an average of $30,000 last year.
