Brides walk down the wedding expo aisles in Secaucus

Francesca Macchiabelli and her soon-to-be husband Michael Puppelo anxiously browsed through the vendors at the New Jersey Bridal & Wedding Expo on Saturday. Their wedding, she said, was a mere 11 months away.

"I've been panicking to find what everybody says we need, like a photographer and a DJ. Everything is here and it's exciting," Macchiabelli said.

Macchiabelli and Puppelo, both 26 and from Bergen County, were among hundreds of prospective brides and grooms at the two-day event at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in Secaucus.

Alyssa Lakes, director of media and marketing for American Consumer Shows, which organized the event, said the expo was a one-stop shop for all things weddings.

"Anything you would need to help start planning your wedding" is here, she said.

The expo floor featured white, polished stretch limousines and Rolls-Royce cars; wedding planners; DJs and entertainment companies; photographers and videographers; florists; gowns and tuxedos; caterers and bakeries; and hotels and resorts. Not to be missed was a booth for Investors Bank, presumably to help the couples finance the wedding of their dreams.

People getting married today "want something different," said Roshni Patel, an employee of Wedding Design in Rahway. "A wedding can be boring. You go, you eat, you dance, you gossip and you leave. You want to wow people."

Brittany Kalinowski, 26, was seeing what the expo had to offer with Dan Santos, 35. The two plan to get married in May 2016.

Santos was one of the few men at the expo.

"I wanted just to be involved," he said. It's our day together. It's nice to see her smiling and enjoying the process."
