As any fiancГ© knows, the minute she says вЂI DoвЂ™, the check list to create her dream wedding seems never-ending and the planning involved in organising a wedding can be overwhelming.
But ask any savvy fashionista or beauty aficionado and they will point you in the direction of the Middle EastвЂ™s largest bridal, fashion and wellbeing event which takes place right on your doorstep. The Bride Show Dubai is back and 2010 is set to be the most exciting event yet.
Taking place from 7 to 10 April at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre, The Bride Show Dubai will sit alongside a new exhibition, WomenвЂ™s World Live.
While The Bride Show Dubai will offer future brides the latest haute couture dresses and abayas designed by regional and international fashion designers, every kind of make-up product imaginable and enough diamonds to keep any Hollywood star happy, WomenвЂ™s World Live will be the ultimate girlsвЂ™ day out with beauty make-overs, healthcare and wellbeing providers and fun fitness classes.
The Bride Show Dubai offers the emirateвЂ™s most fashion conscious women a front row seat at an abundance of runway shows with professional models showcasing fabulous wedding dresses, inspiring and creative abayas and exquisite evening wear.
While a team of hair and make up professionals from lвЂ™OrГ©al Professionnel and MAC Cosmetics work tirelessly backstage to create the latest bridal looks on the catwalk models, lвЂ™OrГ©al Professionnel stylists will be on the exhibition floor, alongside KГ©rastase running a new hair blow dry bar for all visitors.
New to the event this year, the Bridal Lounge will offer visitors an interactive experience with professional advisors giving tips, styling techniques and ideas when it comes to hair, make up and floral arranging. One of the highlights of the Bridal Lounge will be the daily make up sessions by MAC Cosmetic artists who will be showing audiences how to recreate the latest bridal beauty styles.
This year The Bride Show Dubai will celebrate a decade of the popular Young Designers Awards, the competition which has helped propel emerging talented designers in the region into the spotlight. Sitting alongside a photography exhibition of some of the dresses which have been created during the competition will be a live designer workshop for local fashion students. Visitors will have the opportunity to see how much time, talent and skill goes into creating intricately embellished works of art.
With more than 300 wedding industry experts and suppliers from around the world, there are products and services to meet every budget, whether youвЂ™re a newly confirmed вЂrecessionistaвЂ™ in these globally uncertain economic times, or if the only credit youвЂ™re crunching is on your platinum visa card.
Visitors to the show will be eligible to enter prize draws to win a holiday to Seoul courtesy of Visit Korea, to include flights and five-star accommodation, a bride-to-be package from Silkor Laser Center worth AED1,500, and a Bridal Pampering Kit worth AED4,000 from Citruss TV.
The Bride Show Dubai runs from Wednesday 7 April to Saturday 10 April, open from 2:30pm until 10:30pm. Children under 12 are not permitted.
