Billed as an interactive and hands-on bridal event, Exeter gown shop Bridal Elegance is hosting the first “To Have and To Hold” at Ironwood Golf Club Friday, April 4 at 7 p.m. The event features demonstrations, giveaways, a fashion show, hors d’oeuvres, and take home gift boxes for brides inspired by Oprah. “It’s going to be a little more active, a little more interactive, a little more fun, a little more laid back, but elegant at the same time,” says Wilma Truemner. “We’re one-on-one people; we like to get to know our clients on a one-to-one basis and we don’t mind sharing certain names because we feel very strongly about them.” Bridal Elegance selectively invited vendors they recommend. Brides need to pre-register, and only a few tickets remain. The $5 admission will be donated to the Cancer Society. For more information or for tickets, call Bridal Elegance at 519-235-0858.
