The Wedding Spectacular Weekend kicked off at the Wyndham hotel last weekend where everything matrimony related was on display. From specialised DJ services and event planning to catering services and elaborate make-up suppliers all got their shot at wedded glory.
The entertainment line-up was a hit too. The fashion shows were well supported and spectators poured out of the Wyndham hotel's ballroom to watch the Marcia E Roberts Trash the Dress demonstration. But the highlight of the weekend proved to be a generous wedding giveaway from Bliss Bridal to a teary-eyed bride-to-be. Vows brings you highlights.
