Alvin Creation from Kuala Lumpur was the choreographer for the fair.
A member of Powertive dance group, Yu Ting was very impressed with all the wedding gowns.
“I, however, prefer those dresses in blue, especially the close-fitting Chinese ‘QI-pao’ as it is not only stylish but fashionable. I wish I can have it on my wedding,” she said.
She also described the dress as “fit for her”.
The audience were also briefed on wedding planning from a question-and-answer session on stage which was conducted by the master of ceremony, Edmond Wong, for the participating companies.
The wedding fair was organised by Pelita Towerview Sdn Bhd, in collaboration with Floral Sense, which carried a “garden-theme”.
Besides being enthralled by models with the latest wedding dresses, wedding cake makers and wedding card printers were also there presenting on where to bookthose items.
There was also a showcase of cakes, refreshments and door gift ideas for weddings and the display of various designs for invitation and table cards.
Wong, who is also a wedding planner, described the event as a roaring success despite it being the first time organised by Pelita Towerview.
“Many people were very impressed with the event. However, there is still room for improvement. One of which is to have more vendors and sponsors to make it grander if they are going to have it again next year,” he suggested.
