KAMPALA - This year's Bride & Groom Expo will for the first time ever have a couple tie the knot on stage on its second day (Saturday).
And according to the event’s supervisor, Vision Group’s Joweria Nabuuma, the wedding is to show people that a wedding can take place anywhere.
She said it is “very exciting” as “we have never done this before”.
The three-day wedding exhibition opened on Friday and over a hundred exhibitors filled up the Uganda Manufacturers Association (UMA) exhibition hall to showcase their products and services.
It is running under the theme ‘Plan your wedding in a day’.
Nabuuma said this year's expo is classic, with exhibitors “at the top of the fashion game” and have thought outside of the box.
Expect A-list and best décor, bridal gowns, lingerie, photography, make-up and jewelry and plenty more.
This year's show kicked off with a fashion show, traditional dances, with hundreds of people turning up to grace the event.
Leticia Babirye, the manager of Bra World is showcasing different bridal gowns and lingerie.
“During the expo, the models showcase our gowns, bras and lingerie, for people of all sizes. People are allowed to take pictures so that if there is anything they like, we follow up from there. During the expo, we offer discounts,” she intimated.
Olivia Namuli, who works with Kushona Bridal Shop and are exhibiting their services this year, said they are known for dealing in Gomesis but recently, they also started hiring gowns and so participating in this expo is an opportunity to let people know about their bridal gowns.
Uganda Insurers Association, Coca Cola, Castle Lite, Silk Events, Uganda Registration Services Bureau, PilPlan Plus and Darling are sponsors in this year’s Bride & Groom Expo.
