Hundreds of Jewish brides and grooms will shop for everything from caterers to wigs at Brooklyn's first-ever "Big Fat Jewish Wedding Expo.''      

Organizers of Tuesday's expo tell the New York Post that they hope to serve Jewish couples from Hasidic to reform.      

Organizer Avi Werde said he expects to draw more than 500 couples. They'll be able to shop for rabbis, gowns and wedding singers.

Observant Jewish women, who must cover their hair after marriage, can shop for wigs.      

Bride-to-be Rochel Rosen told the Post that having wigmakers, caterers and event planners all in one place cuts down on her stress.      

The expo is taking place at Brooklyn's Grand Prospect Hall.      

New Yorkers know the hall from its TV ads that promise, "We make your dreams come true.''
