After all the buzz from our 2019 Bridal Expo, we thought, "Why couldn’t we provide a year-round Bridal Expo online?” - Michelle Lamay, Franchesco’s General Manager

We also hosted a live fashion show featuring the latest dress and tux trends from Seno Formal Wear and Sara Grace Bridal. And one lucky bride-to-be won our grand prize of $1,000 toward her wedding reception booked at Franchesco’s.
