SC Bridal Showcase rescheduled for Oct. 21 at Florence Center

October 4, 2018

FLORENCE, S.C. — The S.C. Bridal Showcase, originally scheduled for Sunday, Sept. 30, was rescheduled to Sunday, Oct. 21, as a result of the aftermath of Hurricane Florence.

The event, which is in its inaugural year, will be held at the Florence Center and will feature many exhibitors, special events and live contests.

Nick Hooker, director of marketing for the Florence Center, said many of the exhibitors were coming from all over the state, so the venue made the decision to move the event back in the interest of safety.

“The decision to move the date was not solely ours to make, so we called upon our vendors, sponsors and service providers for their input,” Hooker said. “We checked with them to see what conditions their businesses were facing due to the hurricane and flooding. Nearly half of our vendors are out of town, and the majority of them had no travel access to the venue. We collectively agreed to move the event date to Oct. 21 to ensure the inaugural event had stellar participation and brimming with quality providers.”

The showcase will feature a cake dive, a live wedding contest, a fashion show, live demos and more. Attendees will be able to see the latest in wedding trends, have access to some of the top wedding professionals in the area and be given a chance to win major prizes.

They will have the opportunity to sample foods, look at honeymoon plans and preview the area’s top wedding venues, as well.

Kaylen Snapp, event coordinator for the Florence Center, said the event will help engaged couples with their wedding plans.

“If you’re engaged, ready for the big question or just getting a jump start on your dream wedding, then don’t miss this event,” Snapp said. “However, it’s more than just weddings, so for those who may be planning any special occasion, such as a birthday party, reunion, cocktail event or any type of celebration, then the showcase has much to offer. We have over 100-plus vendors including bakeries, florists, emcees, caterers, decorators, venues, photographers, musicians, and the list goes on. From tables and tents to party planners and entertainers, plus décor, hosting advice, menu tips and every aspect needed to elevate your next event.”

Doors will open at 1 p.m. Tickets are $8 if purchased in advance and are $12 at the door. For more information, visit scbridalshowcase.com.
