Getting married is such a beautiful occasion.  For many brides, their wedding day is an event that they have dreamed about many times over.

However, sometimes the actual planning of a wedding can be very stressful.  Much of that stress comes from the long hours spent contacting and researching the different providers that you will need for your wedding.

For instance, let's talk about your wedding venue.  Over the past decade or so, numerous wedding venues and facilities have opened up across the Pineywoods.  It's wonderful to have so many great choices close to home, but trying to figure out which venue would be the best fit for your wedding can be mind-boggling.

How about choosing a catering service? Photographer? Decorations? DJ service? A salon for wedding day hair and make-up? You can rack up a lot of miles traveling to various businesses to make those final decisions.

Here's a thought, why not go to the East Texas Bridal & Event Fair at the Pitser Garrison Convention Center in Lufkin? It's coming up Saturday, February 5 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. It's presented by A-1 Party Rentals of Lufkin.

It's free to get in to see a multitude of wedding day providers.  Plus, numerous door prizes will be given away.  The East Texas Bridal Fair can go a long way in saving you days and days of solidifying your needs for your wedding day.

Here's a look at some of the vendors that will be at the event:
