Sunday, Jan. 13, 11:30 a.m.—RUTLAND— Join the Vermont Wedding Association (VWA) at the Holiday Inn Rutland/Killington for the 33rd Annual Rutland Winter Bridal Show, Sunday, Jan. 13. Always a fabulous and fun show, the event will remain true to form this year with the usual amazing and trending appetizers and desserts. Sign up to win grand prizes including weekend getaways, photography packages, jewelry gift certificates, and more. For tickets and registration, visit rutlandbridalshow.com. Brides get in free with four paid tickets.
Also, ritually held during the VWA bridal shows, the marrow donor program will have a registration booth during the event. The premise is as couples begin their journey together toward a new life, they are often happy to give someone else a chance at a new life. The marrow donor program organizers received their first wedding invitation at a bridal show from a bride-to-be who had lost her mom to Leukemia, as a way to honor her mother and include her in her wedding day. One of the guests at that wedding who registered that day was a match and has gone on to be a donor. The VWA has found a match at four of its bridal shows and one wedding. Stop by and join the registry even if you are not able to attend the show. Registration consists of a brief medical form and a cheek swab.
