For any engaged couple, the Okoboji Weddings Bridal Affair on Feb. 17 is the place to be. There will be over 40 vendors showcasing their talents, whether they are a DJ or a caterer. There are cake designers, bridal gowns, and even a limo service.

Held in the Wimbledon Room at the Arrowwood Resort, engaged couples and their families have an opportunity to connect with a variety of services all in one location.

Grand Occasions serves as the overall host and works hard to make it a special event.

This is the third year for the bridal affair and it continues to grow in popularity.

“It’s really a win-win because we provide brides to the vendors and vice-versa,” she said. “Really, the products sell themselves and the connection a bride makes with a vendor is what fills bookings.”

This year Sheila is focusing on the four Okoboji seasons – winter, spring, summer, and fall.

“An Okoboji Weddings – for all seasons!” she said. “We want to show that Okoboji is really the ideal location for a wedding and it can be a beautiful day, no matter the season.”

A highlight of the day is the cake dive event, which is a competition between four entrants. They are provided with capes and goggles, and the goal is to eat their way through a wedding cake to find a prize. The prizes have been provided by different vendors and the cakes are designed and made by Playful Cupcaketions.

“It is such a fun day,” Sheila said. “We just want to make it special and filled with lots of love.”
