Before women go in search of the perfect wedding dress, chances are they'll first need gowns for a few special occasions...a Quinceañera, Sweet Sixteen, and/or Prom. These celebrations happen only once in a lifetime, and it is an event that should be perfect. The 2016 Quince, Prom & Bridal Expo , now in its 14th year, is the Coastal Bend's largest event of its kind for both teens and brides. It is geared toward a teen's coming of age celebration, and because of the fair's timing, prom dresses, bridal gowns and tuxedos are also included in the mix.
