Attention brides-to-be: If you're still desperately seeking a unique wedding gown - and you've been all over heck and half of Georgia - consider checking out this weekend's Bridal Expo at Sunrise Mall (outside of Macy's South).
As part of the wedding gown fashion show, you'll see four dresses from European designer Joyce Young, who creates wedding gowns for a label called By Storm with a Touch of Tartan. In other words, the collection is subtitled "Dressed To Kilt."
Even if you don't have any Scottish blood coursing through you, these gowns will make you think twice about all white for the big day.
Richard Markel, president of the local Association for Wedding Professionals, was instrumental in bringing Young's gowns to the United States for the first time.
"These gowns are so unique. We saw them in New York at the market shows and wanted to give Joyce the opportunity to have them tour in this country," Markel says. "The gowns are priced at about $1,000, which is slightly above the $800 average price tag for wedding dresses in the U.S."
And no, this isn't Renaissance Fair attire. And yes, the wedding gowns are different. But what bride doesn't want to stand out? Even on the moors!
The Bridal Expo is free and open to the public. Here are the times: 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
