AUGUSTA, Maine. (WABI)- "I'm coming to check out to see if they have dresses, photographers, different cake tastings. Maybe win a honeymoon if I'm lucky."
Hundreds of brides from all over the state stopped in at the Augusta Maine Bridal Show.
Put on by New England Events, 41 vendors were on display.
"Everyday is new and different it's not the same old regular job but it is fun. I do enjoy seeing and helping these girls and actually seeing and connecting the brides with some really good vendors."
Thousands of dollars worth of door prizes were also being given out.
"We give away a four-night Mexico vacation to the first 100 brides and we also give away two eight night seven-day vacations, so we try and make it a lot of fun for the girls to come."
Brides were able to bring their families and prepare for their big day.
"I was kind of expecting it. He was a little nervous that night and it was New Year's Eve so it was kind of a big moment but when the moment came I was so caught off guard. I was shocked."
"I didn't see it coming until the moment it happened and he got down on his knee and I was freaking out. I knew it was coming. He told me. They're best friends. The night before he told me and I was like yes."
