Bridal Show Draws Crowd

MEDFORD, Ore. — More than 400 people shopped at Southern Oregon’s largest bridal show this weekend. Dozens of bridal vendors, mostly local, sold everything from dresses to photography sessions.

“A lot of people in this business are cottage industries. They work out of their house or try to use their property for weddings and that’s what makes up the bulk of this event … it’s a good opportunity for them because they don’t have storefronts. It gives them the ability to meet up with customers,” said Sights and Sounds Unlimited Owner Jes Webb.

Event organizers accepted canned food for admission to donate to ACCESS, or charged $2.00 at the door.

According to event organizers, more than 1,500 wedding licenses are issued each year in Jackson and Josephine County.
