Mackay’s brides-to-be are in for a treat this Sunday when the 2015 Mackay Wedding Showcase is held at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre.

Expo organiser Lucy Dillon, from Lucy Dillon for Brides/Crafty Cat, said the 2015 Mackay Wedding Showcase would be a feast for the senses.

“We’ve brought together over 50 businesses to make it easier to experience in person what is on offer in Mackay for weddings and other events.”

“All the main wedding reception venues are exhibiting and will have samples from their menus for people to taste, then you can stop by and see a new exhibitor, Goanna Brewing, to try their non-alcoholic ginger beer.”

“And of course there will be prizes and a fashion parade – it wouldn’t be a wedding expo without them!”

In the current economic climate, Mrs Dillon wants people to continue to support local businesses instead of assuming all prices were better online.

“We know times are tough for a lot of local people and it’s no different for local businesses.”

“We’d like all local couples to give local wedding vendors a chance. If you are honest about your budget when you see them, you’ll find many will be honest about the services they can provide and often are able to match online prices.”

Mrs Dillon encourages even those not getting married to attend.

“If you have a big birthday party or anniversary coming up, you should attend because many of the exhibitors provide services for these events too.”

“We want as many people to attend as possible so we can continue to support our local Breast Cancer ladies”

Proceeds from the day’s gold coin entry donation goes to Breast Cancer Support Services.
