After the words “Yes” and “I will” comes “I do” – but before saying those two words, there are a lot of preparations and tasks to be done. Edsa Shangri-La, Manila in collaboration with prominent names in the bridal industry is setting up a grand bridal fair to help engaged couples decide and take inspiration for their planned weddings.
Dubbed as Unveil 2016, the Isla Grand Ballroom will be transformed into a romantic sight to behold on April 2 to 3, from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. It has been the custom of the hotel to hold this bridal fair annually.

The event is made possible by partnerships with Wedding Treasures, StarWorld, Fashion Pulis, Wedding Essentials and Weddings at Work. Other greats in the wedding industry will be showcasing what they can offer from wedding gowns to florists, photographers and other selected elite exhibitors that will showcase bridal themes, makeup and grooming, prints and giveaways and everything else needed by the discerning brides in planning their dream wedding.
Couples are invited to join several activities throughout the fair including musical performances by renowned artists in the wedding industry and interactive talks by notable experts such as Chinese Engagement by Denise Doratan Chua and Evelyn Doratan Balay of New Victory Trading, and Chinese Wedding Traditions by Jerome Go.
