From the bride:
I attended the Durango Wedding Expo and it was very helpful to have everything in one place and make a day of it. It was also nice to be able to test food, check out photographers and see all the vendors there. The deals and giveaways were great and I even won a free dinner! The other thing that helped with the planning was reading the Durango Weddings Magazine.  It was nice to see real weddings in the area and the vendors that were recommended.
