Onslow Bridal Gala
February 26, 2012, noon-4pm
Marston Pavilion

Marston Pavilion is located on Seth Williams Blvd., Bldg. 730, Jacksonville, NC
Join our successful network of vendors by participating in the Onslow Bridal Gala. Increase sales & showcase your services. A personal approach is proven to be more effective. The Onslow Bridal Gala will be advertised in several bridal publications and media outlets. Event calendar listings and press releases will be distributed to the local media outlets. Contact us to get your free posters to help promote the show. As you know advertising is expensive and with your help, we can keep the booth costs down. We have even lowered our fees in some areas! Each early bird vendor will be able to have the DJ make an announcement about their product or service. Please write down what you wish to have announced and bring it to the show. Please limit your announcement. Remember to dress up your booth for the Best Booth Contest, voted on by the brides. You could win a free booth next year! This is our fourth year and we appreciate your loyalty and assistance! Thank you all so much!
