The free annual event, held this year on Feb. 25 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and sponsored by the Brentwood Downtown Merchants Association, offers couples a roster of wedding must-haves in one central location.
“The appeal of this event is that it’s local,” said coordinator Annette Beckstrand, owner of His & Hers Formal Wear. “People can shop here and find everything they need in one place without having to drive to Stockton or Pleasanton to do all their prep work. It’s all right here.”
And what’s here includes the Co. Co. County Wine Company, TLCakes, Connie Leal Photography, Party’s 4 You and more. If it’s wedding-oriented, participants will find it at a Bride’s Day Out.
“Couples will find everything they need for a wedding, whether it’s clothes, wine or jewelry, right here,” said Beckstrand. “The idea is to take some of the stress out of the planning and enjoy themselves.”
Participants can also win prizes along the way. The event features a bingo-style game in which visitors get their cards signed off at each merchant they visit and turn them in at the end of the day for a shot at a raffle prize. The raffle, held at the new Brentwood Community Center, includes three grand prizes as well: two $250 Downtown Bucks gift certificates and one $1,000 Downtown Bucks certificate. All certificates are redeemable at any of the participating downtown merchants.
