IF YOU have no fixed engagements this weekend, The Daily Examiner proposes you visit our 2012 Wedding Expo on Sunday.

Local couples and those planning on getting engaged will have the opportunity to explore the many options and themes associated with planning a wedding.

The expo will feature over 30 exhibitors including reception venues, decorators, jewellers, make-up artists and hairdressers who will be on hand to offer you a range of helpful hints and advice.

Among them will be Carol Davies of Something Special, who has more than 10 years experience working in the wedding industry.

"A wedding is a memorable occasion. Something Special offers planning and decorating services and personal consultation to happy couples to make sure every wedding is different," she said.

"Something Special will have demonstrations at the wedding expo so people can see what we do and ask any questions.

"I can't wait for it to start."

Wedding planners are also invited to attend the event on behalf of their clients.

The 2012 Wedding Expo will be held at the South Grafton Ex-Servicemen's Club on August 19, 10am-2pm.

Admission is $2 and includes a copy of The Daily Examiner and entry into exclusive competitions at the event, with the chance to win an exclusive accommodation package for the bride and eight friends at Angourie Rainforest Resort.

Make sure you grab yourself a copy of The Daily Examiner this weekend and enjoy an eight-page feature on our 2012 Wedding Expo.
