Itâ€™s always interesting to ask wedding guests, members of the entourage, the bride and groom and even the couple-to-beâ€™s families what they love most about weddings.
Sometimes itâ€™s the set-up â€” beautiful, velvety flowers in full bloom alongside votive candles that borrow their light from the stars up high â€”Â other times itâ€™s the look the groom has when he sees his bride walking down the aisle of infinity towards him or the all-encompassing atmosphere of love and warmth.

Whatâ€™s your favorite things about weddings?
Well, regardless of what tugs at your heartstrings and makes you melt into a puddle of mush on this special day, thereâ€™s something brides and their bridal posses should not miss out on.
Fall in love and say yes all over again at Shangri-La Plazaâ€™s first ever bridal fair scheduled on July 22 – 24; thatâ€™s a whole weekend of bridal-related activities at the lifestyle destinationâ€™s Grand Atrium!
There will be a ton of bridal fashion and accessory stops brought to you by Mico Boutique, Diamantaire, Golcondia, Jewelmer, My Diamond, Stardust, and Rustanâ€™s Department Store, but thatâ€™s not all there is.
