Leslie Lockhart is getting married and she's looking for help.
She went to last weekend's Columbia Bridal Expo to start getting ideas.
"I've definitely found places where I can find my catering, definitely find a venue, cute little ideas, honeymoon ideas."
The Columbia Bridal Expo featured over 60 wedding related exhibits, and is considered a one-stop shop for brides.
"You can shop with lots of different vendors all in one afternoon. As opposed to if you're just out shopping on your own, you make an appointment here, and there, and go from place to place" said Bridal Expo show producer Angela Koska.
Koska says brides could spend hours driving all over Columbia planning a wedding. The Expo helps them get everything they need at once.
Future brides like Lockhart can sit back and enjoy planning their wedding in events like the Columbia Bridal Expo that puts on four shows each year.
The next expo will be held July 20 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
