Wedding expo brings The Bachelor to Ballarat

The Absolute Weddings bridal expo brought a Great Gatsby theme and The Bachelor Australia’s Tim Robards to the Mining Exchange tonight.

For sisters Renee Littlehales, Kylie Hughes and Megan Neurath the event was not only a fun night out but a chance to do some research in the lead up to Megan's wedding in October next year.

Ms Hughes said the expo was the ultimate girls' night out.

"It's just different compared to other bridal expos - you can dress up," she said.

Stall holders included a mix of photographers, videographers, florists, celebrants and venues.

Robards - star of The Bachelor Australia - was the host for the night.
