The St. Andrews Woman's Club Bridal Showcase has provided "wedding bliss" for future brides and grooms, Midlands-area bridal service providers and community-service and charitable organizations for thirty two years! The Bridal showcase is a "Win-Win-Win" event--for the brides who are able comparison shop and plan the wedding in an afternoon; for the local bridal service providers who have the opportunity to showcase their services and products for hundreds of brides in one location; and for the St. Andrews Woman's Club and the local community charties which receive the proceeds from the event.
The Bridal Showcase will feature 100+ booths by the premier providers of wedding services in the Midlands, fashion show 3:00 PM, and fantastic grand prizes. Exhibitors display their merchandise and services while local brides-to-be comparison shop for the special touches that make their wedding day memorable. During the fashion show, models show the latest in bridal gowns, tuxedoes, and honeymoon apparel.
St. Andrews Woman's Club Bridal Showcase is the longest-running bridal event in the Columbia area. More importantly, it is the only show whose mission is community service and is a member of the General Federation of Women's Club. The Bridal Showcase generates funds that are donated to local community-service organizations and also provides funding for more than 100 "hands on" community service projects provided annually by St. Andrews Woman's Club. Proceeds from the 2013 Showcase were donated to: The Free Medical Clinic, Homeworks, and Palmetto Place Children's Emergency Shelter.
The Chairman for the 2013 Showcase is Gail Elfert. The St. Andrews Woman's Club Bridal Showcase is a wonderful example of how volunteers working together, with the help of local businesses and generous individuals, can make a difference in our community.
