Albany -- Brides-to-be and some grooms-to-be tagged along for the second annual Bridal Expo at the Civic Center.
The expo offered ideas on choosing a dress, cake, and photographers, among other options. Local businesses offered deals on their services for a couple's wedding day.
Those who came say they enjoyed the unique ideas, such as having a liturgical dancer perform during the wedding ceremony.
"It was nice to be able to come to an expo and see something different, and it's moving, and inspiring, and also spiritual," said Courtney Lee.
"Dancing is a part of worship. So a part of your wedding ceremony if you want worship then dancing is just as much of a part of it as a song or prayer," said Abigail Meadows.
The Wedding Team, a local wedding planning company, has sponsored the Bridal Expo for two years now.
