The Pembina Valley has everything couples need for their wedding, according to Teresa Dyck, banquet coordinator at Quality Inn.

A wedding show was held yesterday in the banquet room of the hotel Saturday morning and afternoon with an emphasis on showcasing local businesses and creative vendors

Dyck said the point was to keep couples about to tie the knot shopping locally, rather than lose those couples to shows in Winnipeg or elsewhere in Southern Manitoba.

"We have as much as they could get in Winnipeg; it's important to show people what Winkler can do," Dyck said.

"I think it's important to showcase our small vendors and to bring out the talent that we have in this community."

Event planner, Sharon Webb, from Winkler wanted to create an atmosphere at the wedding show where the different vendors weren't competing, but were working together to display what couples could find in the area.

"We really wanted to bring people together to work together and not just be focused on their own contribution," said Webb.

I hope we can move forward with more of that."
