Metropolitan Bride Expo

Updated:

Downstream Casino holds a one stop shop for those planning a wedding. The 8th bi-annual Metropolitan Bride Expo brought in a large crowd. It offered everything from decorations, to cakes, to even wedding gowns.

Event organizer Doniqua Colbert-Beaugard says the local venders give guests a reason, to keep coming back.

"We know you can do a lot of things online or on longer trips but really being able to see what can be done locally is the biggest thing you know you come here and think, oh I didn't even think about that or oh I need that too, its just everything you need for your bride and your groom, all in one place" says Colbert-Beaugard.

The next Metropolitan Bride Expo will be held at Downstream, in January.
