Marshall to host 4th Annual Bridal and Special Event Expo

Marshall’s fourth annual Bridal and Special Event Expo will take place Sunday, Feb. 17, from noon to 3 p.m. 

The event will be held in the Memorial Student Center with exhibits available for any wedding or special event, according to William "Tootie" Carter, business manager for the student center.

"Our expo is truly a one-stop shop for all your special event needs, whether it’s an elaborate affair such as a wedding reception or a small holiday party or anything in between," Carter said. "All of our venues can accommodate from 5 to 500 guests and Sodexo, our exclusive catering partner, will be on site to discuss all food options."

Pre-registration is now open for vendors and while there is no cost to apply, a door prize worth $100 or more is requested.  Carter said vendors from across the Tri-State area will be in attendance, including The Rental Party, Classy Limousine, BRAVO-Live DJ and many more.

Sponsors include exclusive catering vendor, Sodexo Catering, and Kindred Communications. Kindred WMGA Hits 97.9 will be on site live during the expo, as well.
