It's the peak season for engagements, according to Wedding Wire, Inc.

With so many details to plan, many engaged couples have discovered that attending a bridal expo is one of the best ways to gather ideas, seek advice and sample the flavors that will help lead to happily ever-after. One of the most popular bridal expos in the Carolinas is held at Duplin Winery of Rose Hill, N.C. The event takes place in a picturesque setting among the winery's vineyards and in its charming cypress wood chapel. Future brides and grooms can explore a variety of specialty products and services at the expo.

“We take pride in offering one of the most charming wedding settings in the Carolina's coastal plain,” said Fussell. “Winery weddings are growing in popularity and we provide a venue that offers indoor amenities as well as the beauty of the vineyards. And, as a family operation, it's especially important for us to create an atmosphere that honors the coming together of two people to establish a new family on their wedding day.”
