Show highlights many options for weddings

Weddings and wedding planning has changed over the last 30 years, and the Duluth Wedding Show has been there throughout to help couples plan their special day and keep up with the latest trends.

The show has grown from 35 exhibitors at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center's Paulucci Hall the first year to 80 when it was the first expo ever held in the Lake Superior Ballroom to nearly 150 today in six rooms at the DECC.

This year's wedding show fun runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Jan. 13, and will once again feature the latest in styles, trends and traditions as well as sampling, music, venues and almost anything imaginable to plan the perfect wedding.

"Twenty-first century weddings range from traditional to north woods and almost anything in between," says Kynze Lundeen, vice president of operations at Lundeen Productions. "Many destination weddings take place here as well, and we truly offer everything at the Duluth Wedding Show for all weddings."

In addition to the exhibitors, workshops are offered including a Grooms Workshop presented by Dean Carlson of Night Magic Entertainment. The popular VIP Bride program is also a feature of the show, which is a special ticket and includes early entrance to the exhibit halls, snacks, pampering, sampling, reserved fashion show seating and much more.

The Wedding Show also features a runway fashion show at 3 p.m. At the conclusion of the fashion show, a lucky wedding couple will win the grand prize of a four-night, five-day all inclusive honeymoon with airfare from Duluth to Negril, Jamaica, courtesy of Divine Destinations, Duluth International Airport and the Duluth Wedding Show.
