Every day, the Source publishes a mix of locally reported stories on our website, keeping you up to date on developments in news, food, music and the arts. We’re committed to covering this city where we live, this city that we love, and we hear regularly from readers who appreciate our ability to put breaking news in context.

The Source has been a free publication for its 22 years. It has been free as a print version and continued that way when we began to publish online, on social media and through our newsletters.

But, as most of our readers know, times are different for local journalism. Tech giants are hoovering up small businesses and small-business advertising—which has been the staple for locally owned media. Without these resources, journalism struggles to bring coverage of community news, arts and entertainment that social media cannot deliver.

The Region’s Only Wedding Show Takes New Shape in 2017

Longstanding Central Oregon wedding show—now known as Cascade Wedding Show—will be transformed into a full, elegant bridal experience in 2017

Posted By on Wed, Jun 15, 2016 at 7:25 PM

The Cascade Wedding Show, formerly known as Central Oregon Wedding and Event Show, will premiere on January 14, 2017 at the Riverhouse on the Deschutes Convention Center with a new name and a reimagined bridal experience.

New event producers Lay It Out Events have a renewed vision for the event, which is the only wedding show in Central Oregon and plan to turn the expo into an elegant experience for the bride to be as well as a successful marketing opportunity for vendors.

Attendees can expect to see expanded, hands-on programming including educational presentations on topics including wedding budget management and financial planning, how to choose the right venue, DIY bridal techniques and trends, gift registry tools and tips, etiquette lessons, and more. Vendors will also be invited into the educational programming offering workshops on ballroom dancing, honeymoon planning, and how to create the ultimate bridal survival toolkit.

Each attendee will receive a wedding planner favor and giveaways will be hourly. Look for Central Oregon’s first “Wedding Wars” where vendors will team up to plan a wedding theme and present it on stage. The losing teams will offer special discounts to the crowd making Wedding Wars a must-see for entertainment and inspiration.

Vendor areas will be divided into five main sections: Inspiration Alley (cakes, flowers, photographers); Design It (signage, invitations, guestbooks, stationary); Pamper Yourself; Location, Location, Location; and Eat, Drink and Be Married.

Tickets will be available for pre-sale for $5 each, or $10 at the door.
