The planning is done, the hall is decorated and the brides are ready.

Brides across Southland are preparing to walk down the aisle for a second time tonight after putting their dresses on one more time.

The 32nd Winton Bride of the Year competition will be held at the Winton Memorial Hall tonight.

One of the organisers Jill Taylor said 22 brides and 15 bridesmaids had entered the event, co-ordinated by Central Southland Provincial Rural Women.

Central Southland Provincial Rural Women committee member Lorna Anderson said the event began 30 years ago as a Winton festival catering for 18 brides.

The winner, decided by public vote, always tended to walk nicely, look comfortable and suited her dress, she said. The winner would receive two nights accommodation in a hotel in Queenstown.

The event will begin at 7.30pm and tickets cost $15 for adults and $5 for children under 15.
