On Sunday, Jan. 13, the Vermont Wedding Association will host the 27th annual Rutland Bridal Show at the Holiday Inn Rutland/Killington. Doors open at 11:30 a.m. and prizes will be drawn at 1:30 p.m.

There will be a large and qualified group of area wedding professionals showcasing appetizers, wedding cakes, photography, Spirits Tastings, and, of course, lots of prizes including a Wedding Photography Package from Raiche Photography ($650 value), Overnight with Dinner for two at the Holiday Inn Rutland/Killington, A Taste of Vermont Gift Basket with two Lift Tickets from Mount Snow ($275 value), $250 Gift Certificates from SuperSounds/Green Mountain Photobooth, Hannoush Jewelers and much more!

The Vermont Wedding Association puts on top rated bridal shows voted by brides, couples and wedding professionals. "The data we collect tells us that over 95% of couples planning weddings look for their information online. The recently revamped website in its 13th year, with its vendor and couple centric qualities, continues to be a large and comprehensive online information center for couples planning weddings and events in Vermont.

The Vermont Wedding Association is pleased to continue to team up with the Kerry Ellis and Jennifer St. Peter of the Marrow Donor Program at the Rutland Regional Medical Center.

"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. We are pleased to share that four of our shows have found a match," said Judy Risteff of the VWA. "Our thanks go out to all of the very generous engaged couples who are so willing to reach out and help someone in need."

Everyday approximately 6000 patients who need life-saving marrow are searching for a donor match. We invite the community to stop by and join the registry even if they are not able to attend the show. Registration consists of a brief medical form and a cheek swab.
