Craig briefs: Wedding Expo at Centennial Mall; Teacher of the Year nominations sought

The Wedding Expo, sponsored by Centennial Mall and the Craig Daily Press, is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at Centennial Mall, 1111 W. Victory Way.

“If you’re looking for wedding or prom or planning a party — any of those things — hopefully you’ll find some of the resources to make your event a smash,” Centennial Mall property manager Vicki Hall said.

The event includes about 15 area vendors who provide services for weddings and other events. Services represented include tuxedo rentals, photographers, caterers, hotels, party rentals, cakes, jewelry, makeup, home décor and more.

There will be a Maurice’s fashion show at 2 p.m. at the west end of the mall.

Attendees also can enter to win valuable prizes, including a free engagement session and 16-by-20-inch mounted print from A Moment’s Focus and a two-night getaway from Creekside Guest Cabin.

For more information, call the mall office at 824-7011.
