The Bride Show Abu Dhabi returns in February with everything a bride to be and her fashionista friends could need вЂ“ local and international fashion designers will showcase their latest collections alongside hair and make up professionals, jewellers, wellbeing advisers, wedding favours, wedding planners and stunning venue operators.
A one stop shop for organising your wedding, or simply the ultimate girlsвЂ™ day out, The Bride Show Abu Dhabi is the UAE capitalвЂ™s largest and most sparkling fashion and beauty event, offering everyone an opportunity to sit in the front row of jaw dropping fashion shows, receive complimentary manicures, make up advice and hair styling.
