The sound of church bells are in Erika Wolf and Ian Feule's future, but right now it's all about planning.
"We have different ideas but mine usually over rule his." Erika said.
The two met 3 years ago on a church trip to Florida.
With their wedding day in June of next year, these lovebirds want to make sure they are on the same page.
"Getting both our ideas to combine into one good idea that actually looks good. So that would be the biggest worry about getting married." Erika said.
Everything For Weddings at the Alerus Center gives couples like this the chance to make plans. With a fashion show and local vendors, brides-to-be can find everything.
And for those grooms...
"I don't know if I'd really consider it all fun. I'm more or less trying to figure out what my part is in the wedding but it's fun to spend time," Ian said.
The event draws in thousands of people each year getting ready for their special day.
"People love the fact that they can buy things, book things or order things and they can get it all at one time. If you don't have your cake, flowers, tuxedos. You could walk out having that much stuff done for your wedding," Clear Channel Promotions and Marketing Suzie Johnson said.
A relief for weddings planners like Erika And Ian. After attending several other wedding shows in Fargo and Bismarck, the couple hopes to have everything they need.
"It's fun to have different ideas, different thoughts. Just to plan everything so it all comes together on the big day," Erika said.
"I'm more or less there just to offer a second opinion. She asks what do I like or what do you think about this and I'll say yes or no," Ian said.
The event also has a prom fashion show for high school students.
