Kick-start your wedding plans at Everett/Lynnwood expo

Here comes the bride, all dressed in … whatever her mom didn’t wear.

“Brides don’t want to have what their moms had,” said Brad Buckles, spokesman for the Everett/Lynnwood Wedding Expo coming up at Comcast Arena.

The expo features wedding fashion, food, entertainment, flowers, photographers, a dress sale and all the trimmings. “One thing that is popular is sleeve tattoos with a sleeveless gown,” Buckles said.

Mom didn’t have that.

The show is 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. March 22 and 23 at Comcast Arena, 2000 Hewitt Ave., Everett. Cost is $15. Online special: Buy two tickets, get one free. See www.bridesclub.com.
