The Grand Ballroom at Sheraton Grand Jakarta Gandaria City Hotel was transformed into a truly magical wedding showcase on 18-20 March 2016. Over 15,000 happy couples had the chance to meet and witness the wonderful creations of 100 talented wedding vendors hailing from Indonesia, Singapore, and the Philippines.
Bridestory Fair's theme for this year, "Contemporary x Classic" was chosen to combine the timelessness of every wedding celebration with an innovative touch suitable for modern-day brides. The participating vendors sure didn't disappoint, as each of them brought their very own interpretation to the table, decorating the grand ballroom with truly unique and creative showcases. "I am so excited to see the enthusiasm, both from the visitors and the participating vendors, in our very first wedding fair. We are committed to bring innovative content and concept to the table and give our best to assist engaged couples in finding the right vendors and best deals for their dream wedding," said Kevin Mintaraga as the Co-founder and CEO of Bridestory.
Giants of the Indonesian wedding industry such as Jacky Suharto Photography, Nefi Décor, Tea Rose Wedding Designer, Stupa Caspea, and Lumens Lighting along with notable designers like Yefta Gunawan, Hian Tjen, Didiet Maulana, Vera Kebaya, and Auguste Soesastro dazzled visitors with their amazing creations.
Rising-star vendors from Indonesia including PoLA Artisty Invitation, Attipatra Videography, and Angga Permana Photo also showcased their exquisite work at the fair. Meanwhile, Kartoe and The Proposal Bridal from Singapore as well as Mayad Studios from the Philippines flew in especially to welcome soon-to-be-married couples to their booths.
Another addition to the event was Davy Linggar Photography, who charmed visitors with an edgy video installation made with architecture firm Studio Tonton and composer Ricky Lionardi. "This is the first wedding fair I've ever participated in, I'm excited to introduce my photography style to the couples who are looking for something different for their big day," said the celebrated photographer and artist.
Throughout the event, a certain figure stood out in the crowd: Hilda, our personal wedding assistant. This new service helps couples plan their dream wedding by giving them the best deals from our trusted vendors and was attracting numerous engaged couples who are in the midst of wedding planning process. "Bridestory Fair is offering a very different concept than other wedding exhibitions. This is truly a one-stop place for engaged couples who are looking for a more practical, fun and easy way to plan a dream wedding," said the beautiful actress and bride-to-be, Sandra Dewi, who was seen browsing around for wedding vendors at the event.
With a great venue, high-quality vendors, breathtaking showcases, and Hilda, we hope that Bridestory Fair has accomplished its aim to inspire and help you plan the wedding of your dreams. Did you come to our event? Tell us your favorite booth in the comments section below!
