Sunday marks return of annual Bridal, Quince Expo at Big Red Barn

(Seguin) -- If 2018 includes a wedding or a big party, then you won't want to miss this Sunday's Second Annual Bridal & Quince Expo in Seguin. Hosting the event is the Texas Agricultural Education and Heritage Center a.k.a, the Big Red Barn.

Ali Wilkerson, the director of operations and development, says this year's expo will welcome 50 plus vendors -- all who are equipped to make your special day a memorable one.

"This event is for anyone who is planning a party or reception, any sort of event -- whether it's a corporate event or a personal event. So weddings, receptions, corporate parties. We have vendors from everything, florists to caterers, we've got DJ's, skin care people, just all different sorts of people. Compared to last year, since it was our first year, we had about 48 exhibitors -- this year, we have about 57. So we've definitely grown and I would say probably about 20 percent of those exhibitors are repeat exhibitors. So we've got a lot of new people too. So it's going to be a great event," said Wilkerson.

Wilkerson says not only have they invited food trucks back for sampling but they will also feature something new.

"We have four food trucks coming. They're going to be up at the front. I think a lot of people missed those last year. So that will be a good opportunity for people to experience a food truck if they haven't done that already. New this year, I have a carriage company, Heritage Carriage Company is coming out. They're bringing one of their carriages. They are a horse drawn carriage. So that's a neat, neat aspect to any, especially a wedding, oh my goodness, I could just imagine coming from a church to the reception in a horse drawn carriage, (it's) just definitely a princess style wedding," said Wilkerson.

Although some vendors will be from out-of-town, Wilkerson believes individuals will be surprised of what they will find right here at home.

"We do it once a year and it's a great opportunity for our local exhibitors and vendors and companies that are just here. It's great to use those local people to keep our money and our business here in our area. There's no need to go outside of our realm of Seguin and New Braunfels and San Marcos. It's just great to try to keep that business in our area," said Wilkerson.

The Bridal & Quince 2018 Expo will be held from noon to 4 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $5 a person. A buy one, get one free coupon can be found in Friday's weekend edition of the Seguin Daily News. The Big Red Barn is located at 390 Cordova Road.
