Loved-up couples flocked to The Wedding Expo® in Johannesburg recently searching for ideas, advice and wedding inspiration. Naturally we were there too, armed with copies of our magazine (the new spring issue sold out!). Among the highlights at the two-day event were stunning cake, table and flower displays, wedding photographers, venues and stationers (our love of paper detail knows no bounds!). But it was the bridal wear at the Coke Light Fashion Spectacular that really caught our eye. South African designers such as Garnish Couture, Biji, Gerald C, New Romantics and F. Wilson showcased their new dresses, which featured sparkle, floral embellishment and colours such as champagne and blush. There was also plenty of romantic detail in the ready-to-wear gowns from international labels such as Cosmobella by Demetrios, Pronovias, Enzoani and Maggie Sottero. For grooms, there were suave suits from suppliers such as Eurosuit, Designer Warehouse and F. Wilson, plus cute outfits for the younger members of your retinue. Here are a few of our favourite looks from the show. Keep your eye on www.wedding-expo.co.za for more.
