Mary Donnell and Linda Abell discuss the ring display as part of their Women's Expo wedding display in the Worland Community Center Complex.

WORLAND – With the Women's Expo coming up Feb. 12, Linda Abell, with the help of Mary Donnell, Shannon Christian and Katianne Meuller, decided to create a display at the Worland Community Center Complex with a wedding theme, featuring items from Friday Fest merchants.

"I decided that I would do wedding dresses and valentines because it's February and its appropriate and people are planning. My idea was that at the beginning I would give the Friday Fest merchants space to put some things that they might want to promote, that maybe people might stop by their place," Abell stated.

Amidst the wedding dresses that range from the 1970s through the 1990s are items labeled something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue with business cards attached. Abell said that she put that in there to remind people to shop locally. "The idea is to promote so that people can see that no matter what you need it's available locally. You just have to do a little bit of planning," she said.

Wedding photos of local residents can also be found throughout the display and Abell stated that if anyone would like to have their photos as part of the display she would be happy to make room.

The display also has a place at the end for someone to advertise their reception venue. "I haven't put anything in there yet because nobody has gotten anything ready for me," Abell said.

While creating the display, the ladies had a lot of supervisors. "I had a lot of supervisors, man you could not believe the people that were supervising, the people that walk and the kids from the Learning Center," Abell stated. "The most exciting thing was when a daddy came to pick up one of the young girls and she says, "Dad, dad, come look, this is the dress that I am going to have when I get married." She had to be probably about 7 or 8," she added.
