Close your eyes and run the word “wedding” through your mind. What you see relates a wealth of
information about you. While weddings encompass a single day, the traditions and celebrations they
encompass originated years ago and were passed from family to family, place to place, culture to culture
until the idea was conveyed to you. And just as you will never find two families who are identical,
neither will you find two ideas of weddings that represent the same cultural traditions and beliefs. As
we look around the Quad Cities you will find a myriad of cultural traditions and norms being expressed
on a beautiful wedding day.
Here in the Quad Cities we are so in luck that our diversity grows and changes each year as more and
more families are attracted to our community. Global Awareness Consulting, a company that creates
diversity programs for communities, is bringing us a fabulous opportunity for all our QCA engaged
couples with the First Bi-State IA/IL Multicultural Bridal Expo! Their mission statement for this event
is to ensure that each person, regardless of his or her culture and beliefs, will be able to find the best
professionals in Iowa and Illinois to fit their wedding needs and wants. What a fabulous opportunity this
