Rediscover Love at a Wedding Expo
There is nothing like a wedding expo to remind anyone of the reason why they got married in the first place. These exhibitions and events are a celebration of love and rediscovery – making each and every couple (or would be couple) that go to be re inspired and moved to perhaps make that decision.
These events can be a tear jerker but they are also a sight to behold. They spare no effort in the decorations, flowers decorate the halls with splendour and add colour and life to the event. There are many wedding expos in Singapore and usually, they are held towards the end of the year, where the national calendar of the collective society of Singapore suddenly gets filled with weddings and solemnization ceremonies. Wedding expo’s give these couples the nudge in the right direction as well, just another reason why they should tie the bonds of matrimony and say the words that would last a lifetime.
Every aspect of the ceremony is addressed at the exhibitions. First and fore most is the photography – a wedding is not complete with a set of beautiful photographs to immortalise the event and the feelings the couple have for each other. Photography has become more and more intricate of late and couples have been demanding almost cinematographic shots – complete with daring ensembles. Apple has also had a part to play, judging by the wedding expos that I have been to – more and more couples are using the added advantage of digital enhancement to add that level of fantasy to their photos. Then there is the question of the wedding dress and wedding suit. Not only do they have to match, but if you have been to a wedding of late, you will realise that that the bride and groom do change into more than just one pair of matching wedding clothes.
Why Go to a Wedding Expo?
At a wedding expo, there are endless vendors who offer services ranging from wedding limousine hire to food catering and invitations. When I was a bride, I never went to one. I lived in Wales at that time. For the most part I was finishing my final year of university. In the holidays, the groom had found three places on his own for us to look at. We went to a local party/print shop to pick out invitations. They could also have designs printed on napkins.
Back in Wales, I worked on making my own dress. Everyone was a bit dubious if I could achieve such a feat since I had little experience in dress making. I had never made anything except for a knitted top as a class project in primary school! I was inspired by another girl who threw together a dress for a university dance. She claimed you could do it with “sticky tape and glue.” At one point she put it out in a small cement court yard so she could spray paint it! It was completely haphazard but she was just having a go. When she finally showed up at the university ball, I was amazed! She gave me the confidence to have a go at doing it myself. I reasoned – if she could do that, I could do that too!
