GLBT Wedding Expo Reprises at Park Plaza Hotel

Appropriately enough, on Valentine’s Day Eve, February 13, Noon-4 PM, the seventh annual GLBT Life & Wedding Expo takes place at the Park Plaza Hotel, 4460 West 78th Street Circle, Bloomington. The event is presented by the Park Plaza Hotel, Rainbow Wedding Network, and Twin City Bride. Savii Formalwear is sponsoring tuxes; Adagio is providing music; and Smitty Boyz is doing hair and makeup.

It was at this same location in 2003 that the Rainbow Wedding Network nationwide tour of Gay and Lesbian Wedding Expos began. For seven years, the expo has remained the exclusive event in the Twin Cities dedicated to serving gay and lesbian couples wishing to plan their weddings.

Special guest is Christopher Straub, Project Runway Season 6 contestant. The expo Fashion Show will feature his spring and summer line. He will offer one of his signature items for the 2011 Event Raffle.

New special guest Paris Bennett, Top-5 contestant from Season 5 of American Idol, is joining the festivities.

Also featured are 30 select, gay-friendly exhibitors ready to work joyfully with you and your partner; samples and planning tips; interactive presentation by Rainbow Wedding Network founders; and amazing raffle prizes, including your chance to win a four-night stay in Aruba and signature luggage by Straub.

GLBT couples, as well as advocates and allies, are encouraged to attend this wonderful event to show support, and take advantage of all the fun and helpful resources the afternoon has to offer.

Tickets, $10 per person, are available at All proceeds will be donated to District 202.
