Planning your special day can be an intimidating journey, but Downtown Statesboro's Wedding Walk Expo has done the hard part for you.

The Wedding Walk will take place from 5:30-8 p.m. Friday in First Baptist Church Statesboro's Perry Fellowship Hall. Admission is $5.

An array of nearly 50 vendors will be on-site to answer your questions and help you plan your wedding. Vendors will include wedding planners, photographers, florists, hair and makeup artists, attire and caterers.

Eagle Creek Brewery will host an after party immediately following the Wedding Walk Expo for all guests to attend with no admission charge from 8:30-10 p.m. Enjoy beer tastings for $10 and enjoy the entertainment for the evening from Francis Marion & The Crocodiles, a jam band.

One beautiful bride will win a grand prize valued at more than $1,500, including a $500 check from the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority.

Rebecca Smith's two sisters took her to the Wedding Walk Expo last year as a gift to help her begin her wedding plans. They never expected that she would walk away as the grand prize winner.

"Going to the Wedding Walk put in perspective everything I needed, and everything I had not thought of, to plan my wedding," Smith said. "Winning the grand prize gave us the freedom to have fun as we planned our wedding."

She even went so far as to say, "The Wedding Walk made me want to get married once a year!"

Statesboro has an assortment of wedding venues, catering options and talented photographers. Through the First Friday Wedding Walk Expo, the Downtown Statesboro Development Authority hopes Statesboro will become a destination wedding spot.
