PEORIA, Ill -- Hundreds of brides and grooms-to-be attended the annual Wedding of a Lifetime Bridal Show.

About 60 local wedding vendors gathered at the Peoria Civic Center to offer the latest wedding ideas, from cakes to cutlery.

The event also featured a runway, show-casing current trends for both gowns and tuxedos.

"It's fun. We coordinate the wedding show buy getting our exhibitors and then advertising," said Co-sponsor Bobbie Ziffren. "It's a full process to coordinate a show, and our thrill is the day of the show when we see all of the brides here watching the fashion show and visiting our exhibitors and finding what they need for their wedding."

This is the 18th year for the Wedding of a Lifetime Bridal Show.
