Craig Bridal Faire draws brides-to-be

Brides-to-be sampled cakes, talked to photographers and perused bouquets Sunday at the 2006 Craig Bridal Faire.

Twenty-three vendors were on hand at the Holiday Inn of Craig to meet future brides and explain their services.

“I think it’s awesome,” said Vicki Tromburg of Craig. “It’s really cool.”

Her wedding is in August 2007, so she said she has plenty of time to plan.

But BJ Burch’s wedding is in two weeks. The Craig resident came to the event to get a few last-minute ideas. She said she is not stressed.

“There have been a few moments I wanted to kill somebody, but now I’m fine,” Burch said.

Rob Sexton, owner of Magic Carpet Travel, said he organized the event to give brides-to-be a sense of what services are available locally.

“It’s really hard to make all the contacts you need to make,” he said. “I think we have everything possible you could need for a wedding here.”

Sexton said there has not been a bridal fair in Craig for eight years.

The event was sponsored by Magic Carpet Travel, the Holiday Inn and the Moffat County Morning News. Vendors came from Craig, Meeker, Steamboat Springs and Baggs, Wyo.

Mary Kay Sherman, owner of The Giving Tree, said she was pleased with the one-stop shopping atmosphere. Florists, hair stylists, jewelers and caterers were all in one place.

Even so, Karrie Littman, owner of Karrie’s Kick Ass Katering in Oak Creek, said attendance was low.

Nikki Blomquist, a contractor for Home Interiors and Gifts, shared her sentiments.

“I think it’s too early. People who are getting married this summer have already planned everything,” Blomquist said.

She said people with Christmastime proposals have not yet begun to plan, and Sundays are usually a day for relaxing. Plus, Super Bowl XL probably kept many people away, she said.

“But even if a few people call us later, it’s worth being here,” Littman said.
