By Nick Kovatch on January 1 at 9:14pm

If you’re looking for ideas for a wedding or prom next year you’ll want to be in Jacksonville on January 19th.

That’s the date of the 10th annual Bridal and Prom Expo. It’ll be at Hamilton’s at 110 North East.

The 2014 Expo will include two fashion shows highlighting the latest styles, tuxedoes, floral accessories, and hair design for both weddings and prom. The Prom Fashion Show will be at 1:30 p.m. and the Bridal Fashion Show at 3 p.m.

The event will feature over $1,500 in door prizes and vendors from throughout the area showcasing premiere products and services for any formal occasion. This year’s Grand Prize is 2 Round Trip Air Tickets to a choice of destinations (when a 7 night stay is booked through World Travel and Apple Vacations).

Advance tickets are available for five dollars at A Head of Times Grand Salon and Day Spa, Signature Events Rental and Party Center, Girls in White Satin Bridal and Formal Wear, and Ashley’s Petals and Angels. Tickets will also be available at the door for 8 dollars the day of the Expo.

Other event sponsors include Hamilton’s Catering, Production XPress, Jacksonville Journal Courier and Casey’s DJ Service.

Vendor booths are available, with forms and information available at jacksonvillemainstreet.com. Certain products are proprietary, so duplication of select products will not occur; therefore it is advised to call the Jacksonville Main Street office to check availability.

All proceeds from the Bridal and Prom Expo benefit the downtown revitalization projects of Jacksonville Main Street. For more information, call Jacksonville Main Street at 245-6884.
