Upcoming Bridal Show

Montage Mountain Resort in nearby Moosic will host the American Bridal Show in October. It’s Northeast PA’s largest fall wedding expo, so if you are new in the planning process, this bridal show is a great place to start. In January, the Scranton Cultural Center hosts the NEPA Bridal Show- one of the area’s leading bridal expos.

Find Your Bridal Gown

It is recommended that you begin looking for your wedding dress at least nine months before the wedding. This will give you plenty of time to find a dress, order the dress, and still have time for proper fittings. Located in nearby Scranton, PA is Tunis Bridal Shoppe. This boutique bridal store offers a selection of designer bridal gowns and bridesmaid dresses.
