“Every single wedding is memorable,” said Susan Dunne, owner of Weddings by Susan Dunne and organizer of this year’s Bridal Showcase at Noor. “It all depends on the couple and what they want.”

She organized the #justsaidyes event from her list of trusted vendors so that brides and grooms could meet multiple vendors all in one place. Unlike other bridal showcases, Dunne aimed to recreate the atmosphere of an actual wedding so that couples could better envision their big day.

The event features cake samples from Merengue and Fantasy Frostings, crepes from Bon Cafetit and liquid nitrogen frozen ice cream from Sub Zero Ice Cream. The indoor and outdoor spaces were furnished with rental items from Toast Party Rentals. Owner, Eliona, described the current style as shabby chic – a cross between elegance and rustic furniture.

Models showed off Aria wedding dresses, designed by Tak Hau. His locally-produced wedding dresses can be customized to any shape, style and silhouette.

“Brides are more internet savvy and do their research before coming in,” said Hau. “We offer mix-and-match options so each bride can make it her own.”

This trend of customization was apparent in everything from the dresses to the desserts. More and more couples are choosing to tie the knot their own way and are looking for one-of-a-kind experiences. Laurel Rose, owner of Dance Street, added that most couples bring their own music request custom choreography for their first dance.

“The best thing couples can do to enjoy their big day is to invest in a wedding planner,” said Dunne.
