Brides Flock to the Carolina Inn’s Bridal Showcase

The Carolina Inn sure knows how to throw a party. And not just any party. A bridal party. Everyone was looking their best, from the brides, vendors, and caterers to the florists, dress makers and event planners.


It was an elegant afternoon of tulle, taffeta and bow ties at the annual Carolina Inn Bridal Showcase. Brides-to-be – with their maid of honor, fiancé or family in tow – met with wedding consultants, photographers and other potential vendors about their big day. Attendees also checked out the latest trends in gowns, makeup and hair and enjoyed a s’mores bar, fruit hand pies and Cheerwine from Crossroads Chapel Hill.
