The Carolina Inn ~ Bridal Showcase January 26, 2014 ~ 1 PM - 4 PM

The 2014 Bridal Showcase has concluded. Thank you to all the vendors, brides and guests who helped make our 19th Annual Bridal Showcase a huge success! We appreciate your support and look forward to next year's event. 

Join the wedding professionals of The Carolina Inn for an elegant afternoon with the most creative and experienced wedding vendors in the area. Our luxury Bridal Showcase will allow you to sample cake from several bakeries, hold bouquets of flowers in your hands, listen to music, and see the most exquisite wedding gowns from top couture designers.

The Carolina Inn would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to Classic Party Rentals for providing all the tents at this year's Bridal Showcase.
