2015 Wilmington NC Wedding Expos

Congratulations! You’re getting married! Planning a wedding is oh so exciting, but can also be oh so stressful! We’ve found that one of the best ways to sort through the noise of a ton wedding vendors’ websites is to attend a Wilmington NC Wedding Expo and meet the experts first hand. And below, we’ve put together a list of scheduled Wilmington NC wedding expos and shows for 2015.

Once you choose your date and your venue, make sure to reserve your transportation as early as possible to make sure the date and vehicle you desire is available. We find that many brides prefer our luxury Mercedes-Benz Sprinters over a traditional limo and our Classic Rolls-Royce Silver Wraith II is a popular wedding get-a-way car for couples.
