‘Vivaha 2008′ celebrates grand Indian weddingsAugust 1st, 2008 - 9:13 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) There may not be any grand weddings during the next two months as the stars are not right but an exhibition here unfolds just how magnificent the big day can be once the marriage season kicks off in October. The sixth edition of ‘Celebrating Vivaha’ opened here Friday, and with each passing year, the exhibition is getting bigger and better - and is now venturing abroad.
“We have participation by leading national as well as international brands covering the entire gamut of all that is required for a wedding,” said ‘Celebrating Vivaha’ CEO Tarun Sarda.
Given its success here, Sarda has picked up courage to take the exhibition to Dubai, where ‘The Grand Indian Wedding Exhibition’ will be held in Dubai Oct 9-11.
This exhibition brings together the latest in the business of weddings and fashion under one roof, giving designers, exhibitors as well as brides and grooms-to-be a platform to plan their wedding in advance.
A special attraction this time is designer Vikram Phadnis showcasing his wedding collection and Bollywood mehndi queen Veena Nagda, displaying her skills.
These apart, the exhibition features a mind-boggling variety of wedding trousseaus and home accessories, as also stalls showcasing wedding planners, honeymoon destinations, and whatever else is associated with a wedding.
“The best thing about this place is that one gets under one roof an idea of what to buy and what is in these days,” Soumya Gupta, a visitor said.
The exhibition started from Ludhiana in July and from here it moves to Mumbai, Indore, Bangalore, Kolkata, and Hyderabad before returning to the capital in December.
