MOULTONBOROUGH — Those in the midst of planning a wedding have a fun way to see the newest styles and décor from NH wedding vendors at the Saturday, Nov. 9 Castle Wedding Affair bridal show. The show takes place at the Carriage House on the Castle in the Clouds property.
Says Kathi Hopper, editor of Lakes Region Bride magazine (the company that presents the show each year), "We are extremely fortunate to work with the Castle wedding coordinator staff on this year's bridal show. In particular, Rodyan Quinonez, the lead coordinator for the Castle, has been the creative force behind the event. She has brought expertise in décor and staging to the show and come up with a Parisian wedding carnival theme. The show, in a word, will be gorgeous!"
Support for the show is from WLNH 98.3, Castle in the Clouds, Taylor Rental of Laconia and Crown Entertainment DJ and Events.
Brides-to-be and their guests will be treated to valet parking by Atlantic Parking; a chance to see the historic Millie B boat (which is used for lake wedding transportation), the charming Molly the Trolley and a limo from Grace Limousine.
"And that's just outdoors." continues Hopper. "In the Carriage House, we will offer so much to please brides. There will be jazz music by Lee Anne Ames duo, a Cake Walk with wedding cake vendors offering delicious and tempting cake samples, makeup consults and instant updos by Galleria Salon and Day Spa; Castle cocktails (think cotton candy cocktails!); fashions galore; a lounge area with music by George on Guitar; a unique photo booth fun area; lush table designs with linens by Table Toppers; florals; photography and tons of food sampling from top area caterers to name just some of the things offered."
The show ends with a bridal runway fashion show on the tented (and heated) patio. The tent is provided by Taylor Rental and the wedding fashion show is courtesy Andrea's Bridal Boutique.
The grand prize for the Castle Wedding Affair is a two-night stay for two at the beautiful waterfront Nonantum Resort in Kennebunkport, Maine, for one lucky bride-to-be and her guest. (Winner will be drawn at random at the show.)
Admission for the Castle Wedding Affair is just $5 per person. The show opens at 3 p.m. and will give guests a chance to visit with all wedding vendors, sample the food and have a cocktail. The fashion show starts at approximately 6 p.m.

BELMONT — Members of the Belmont High School (BHS) chapter of Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) are busy at work preparing for their Seventh Annual Holiday Fair, to be held at BHS on Saturday, November 9 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Last year's event saw over 100 vendors throughout the school's gym, cafeteria, and band room. Approximately 2,000 shoppers were in attendance, and students are hopeful that this year's fair will continue to raise expectations.
Students who have helped plan, organize, market, and execute the fair for multiple years are excited to be part of it again. Sydney McKim, a senior at Belmont and a two-year member of FBLA, has seen the Holiday Fair grow into the huge event it is now. "Helping out with the fair really is my favorite part of being in FBLA. I don't think that I am alone in this feeling either; many of us feel a great sense of accomplishment by being able to provide a community event that is so well-received and simultaneously be able to give back. The Holiday Fair also allows us to develop skills necessary to be proficient in business, from marketing and planning, to communicating with people." FBLA will again be donating a portion of the proceeds of the fair to the LNH Children's Auction and collecting donations for the Mix 94.1 Cash N Cans Drive.
During the fair, the BHS PTO will be hosting Santa's Secret Shopping Experience where children and students will be able to do secret holiday shopping for special gifts for family members and friends. Children will leave with wrapped gifts, and be overjoyed during the holidays to watch their loved ones unwrap special surprises.
