April 8, 2012 -- La Mesa David’s Bridal & Friar Tux Preferred Wedding Planner, Charisma Events & Consulting (CEC) hosts its first annual Beauty in the Bride wedding expo. The goal is to provide an intimate, elegant experience for the brides and grooms, as well as provide all exhibitors maximum exposure by having only one wedding vendor per category. This is in the effort to relieve stress and pressure that most couples feel after leaving a wedding expo.

CEC aims to equip the couples not only for the day of their wedding, but life after the wedding--thus financial advisers, real estate agents and other “non traditional” wedding professionals have been invited to participate.

Advertising on,, social media websites and other mediums, Charisma Events & Consulting is expecting a great turnout.  With Friar’s Tux and Alfred Angelo on board, CEC has decided to showcase their lovely bridal attire in a Fashion Show.

Brides and grooms will be in awe when they see the latest trends in bridal fashion.  The hope is to move the attendees from the awe stage and  into the stores of Friar’s Tux, Alfred Angelo and the many other exhibitors. The fashion show is scheduled for 5p.m.   With sponsorship from Friar’s Tux, Alfred Angelo, David Party Productions, La Mesa Community Center, CEC believes this event will go down in history as one of the most reputable and memorable intimate bridal expos in San Diego.
FREE Invitation gift certificates will be given to all couples in attendance. Other surprises include raffling off a “Day of Coordinator” Package from Charisma Events & Consulting. These and many other giveaways will take place throughout the 4 hour event.  All winners must be present to win.

Some vendor spaces may still be available for wedding professionals to display their services to brides and grooms. The cost to participate as an Exhibitor is $100, and includes a fully draped table, two chairs, electricity, and an exclusive attendee list.  In some cases, the exhibitor fee will be waived and an exchange of services is sufficient.  FREE Admission for the First 50 couples and $5 thereafter. There will be light refreshments throughout the event.

Mark your calendars for Sunday, April 15, 2012 and plan to attend the 1st Annual Beauty in the Bride Wedding Expo, taking place at the La Mesa Community Center. Event doors will open at 2p.m. to the public, until 6pm. Visit the Beauty in the Bride Expo at or contact Charisma Events & Consulting at for more information about this event.
