The showcase is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m., and will include tours of The Matthews House, food tasting, and cake samples. The afternoon will conclude with a Cake Dive, where one bride will receive a free wedding valued at over $10,000.
In addition to meeting one-on-one with some of the premier vendors in the Triangle, six lucky brides will have the opportunity to participate in the Cake Dive. The contestants will "dive" into a three-tier wedding cake searching for an imitation wedding ring. The first to find the ring will win a wedding package that includes the venue, catering, cake, make-up services, formalwear, and more, all donated by some of the participating vendors.
Admission is free and open to the public. Brides should pre-register for a chance to participate in the Cake Dive at www.matthewshousecary.com/
