The public can catch a repeat of the bridal fashion show tomorrow on 5 January, 2014, Sunday, 5pm, at VivoCity, Central Court, Level 1. A Little Dream will also be entertaining the crowds with a live music performance at 1pm. The three-day New Paper Wedding Planner event ends tomorrow at 9pm.

The New Paper Wedding Planner is the perfect place for couples to make plans for the perfect wedding. This exhibition is a comprehensive one-stop venue for couples sourcing for wedding related products and services, with more than 20 exhibitors from bridal houses, hotels/venue providers, restaurants, and a jewellery shop. 

This year’s fashion show showcased timeless wedding dresses with stunning crystal details, romantic lace overlays and eye-catching jewel hues. Ms Kerano Heng, Managing Director of White Link, said: “New generation brides opt for simple gowns with exquisite craftsmanship to bring out their natural beauty and elegance. Quality is something not to be ignored.”

Mr Effandy Kumess, Director of Sales at Royal Plaza on Scotts, said this is the fourth year they are participating in the exhibition, as they are trying to create a niche in smaller, more intimate wedding celebrations after noticing an increasing number of couples coming to them with as little as 45 guests. He said: “There are more and more couples moving away from holding large receptions and focusing on spending their special day with their closest friends and relatives instead.”

Visitors who make a purchase at the event will receive an exclusive CATS Classified premium and be in the running to win attractive prizes worth more than $10,000 sponsored by Love & Co. and Royal Plaza on Scotts in a Buyers' Lucky Draw.
