Buddha Kat appeals to bride on a budget
Brides, be advised. A new wedding show is coming to Sandy, and there will be wine.
Buddha Kat Winery's Lorrie and Barbara Dilley, along with local wedding planner Sasha Konell, will host the business' first wedding show.
The event, dubbed Mt. Hood Weddings & More, will run from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16, at the winery's 17020 Ruben Lane location.
"We're trying to keep it as local as we can," Barbara said. "We're trying to get people here to be our vendors, people who are trying to get into the wedding industry. Here at the winery, we want to get more involved with weddings."
Vendors from Sandy and Gresham will be present to show local soon-to-be-married ladies how they can have a gorgeous wedding without gouging their wallets.
Lorrie will be offering wine tastings from the barrel throughout the afternoon.
The sisters hope the event will give new vendors wedding show experience. The winery itself does host events, such as bridal showers, and provides cold catering for local events.
"I feel strongly that I want to help people who can't afford the big, fancy wedding," Barbara explained. "We want the wedding show to be for the typical bride."
