“Ever & After” Bridal Show is back at Hapo Center on Sunday

The Bridal Expo is held in Pasco on Sunday, January 9th, 2022 from 11 a.m.-4 p.m.

NEW DETAILS, 7 p.m. on 1/6/2022

PASCO, Wash. — The Bridal Show “Ever & After” is making a comeback after two years.

“There’s just a whole lot of fun booths to look at and explore, and find pretty much everything you need for your wedding,” said Ever & After Producer Stacey Miles.

The event will be held at the HAPO Center in Pasco, formally known as TRAC, just as it has in years past. But this year, things may look a little different.

With Washington State’s COVID restrictions on large gatherings, the event will now be limited to 1,000 attendees. By keeping the event this small, the venue will not have to check vaccination statuses of ticket holders.

Which is why the event also has staggered check-in times, and two fashion shows. There are also less vendors than years’ past, but you can still expect about 60 vendors ranging from venues, photographers, caterers and more at the expo.

“Most of the vendors participating have fun drawings and giveaways,” said Miles. “So you can really walk away with touching and tasting and exploring how your wedding can be.”

Many couples put wedding plans on hold during the pandemic. Miles, who also manages Stone Ridge Estates Wedding Venue in Pasco, says 2021 had a lot of ‘make-up’ wedding dates, in addition to new couples getting married.

But an interesting trend that couples are doing is inviting less people, as more wedding try to accommodate social distancing.

“Instead of spending that money on the extra guests, on more special things for their events,” Miles said. “We’re seeing more things like specialty ice cream food trucks and things that wouldn’t have been in their budget before.”
