One stop shop wedding gala to be held in town

Something new is set to hit the scene in Sylvan Lake – the XO Wedding Gala.

Something new is set to hit the scene in Sylvan Lake the XO Wedding Gala.

This gala is for brides and grooms. Ladies, please don’t leave your soon to be husbands out of the planning process. They have good ideas too says organizers.

The Gala will take place March 12, 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Sylvan Lake Community Centre.

There will be a fashion show that will showcase the latest fashions in stunningly beautiful wedding dresses. Around 16 vendors will also be there to help take care of all the wedding details.

Among the vendors will be different photography options, special event equipment rentals, decor rentals, different travel agencies and many more.

“It’s basically everything you need to plan your wedding from the start right through till your honeymoon,” said owner of Magical Moments and event organizer, Lenny Gallant.

Gallant explained planning the details of a wedding can be very stressful. Having a one stop shop at a gala can help ease the pressure of getting everything just right for your special day.

Since there are no bridal boutiques in town, this is the perfect local event where brides can see what is available without having to travel out of town.

“We want to showcase our local businesses that can help with weddings,” Gallant said.

Marriage commissioner Barb Fenske will be in attendance and will be able to offer some insight as to the little things some people may not know they need to do for their wedding.

Leah and Sean McIntyre will be the special hosts and master of ceremonies.

They were chosen to host the event as Gallant said they are an amazing couple.

“They exude what marriage is, what marriage should be and they have a lot of great things to say,” Gallant said. “We’re excited to have them presenting.”

“Marriage is supposed to be forever,” he added. “They have a lot of insightful things to talk about.”
