Valentine’s Day may have come and gone, but Mankato has not yet finished with the merry making. 

Southern Minnesota couples will still have an opportunity to get ready for the biggest day of their lives Sunday at the Verizon Center for Mankato’s biannual bridal show.

The event, organized by Courtney Werpy, is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. and finish by 1 p.m. and will allow couples planning their wedding the opportunity to meet and find vendors that best fit their idea of their perfect wedding.

The event is free admission and will include live music as well as other bands coming to audition for any potential couple’s wedding. 

There will be over 50 vendor booths throughout the event that will cater to around five to 800 couples estimated to come to the event. A full list of vendors is on the Mankato Bridal Show website which is subject to change.

Some of the many vendors that will be at the bridal show are Najwa’s Catering, Mankato Golf Club and Unique Touch Photography.

The first 300 attendees will be able to go home with a free “swag bag”. Couples registering for Sunday’s event will also be able to win one of five grand prizes which could be a DJ Package which includes a four-hour DJ service valued at $500-$1,250 Honeymoon voucher.

Other amenities at the event include a free mimosa for attending brides and grooms, hor d’oeuvres provided by Najwa’s Catering, and a free red-carpet photo taken by JMH Photography. 

Media sponsors of the event are Minnesota 93 Radio and Hot 96.7 with show sponsors including JMH Photography and Memorable Moments by KW.

Any and all couples hoping to have the wedding of a lifetime should come to the event for expert planning and vendor options for this special event that happens only twice a year.
