Ethan Allen, in association with My List, hosted ‘The Dream Wedding Workshop’ last Tuesday, and it was nothing less than magnificent! Several brides-to-be attended the two hour workshop, and left feeling more inspired and wise about their wedding choices along with a bag full of delicious goodies!
Ethan Allen, the designer furniture store on Sheikh Zayed Road, was transformed into an inspiring space for future brides. As we entered, there was a hot chocolate cart by Angelina Tearoom awaiting us with its signature drink. And boy, was it delicious!? Two mannequins dressed in pretty bridal gowns stood at the entrance, and immediately gave us a happy wedding vibe. Candylicious had adorned the table with their various candies and eye-catching lollipops, while Garrett Popcorn served us some lip-smacking caramelized and cheese popcorn.
Adjacent to this table was the impeccable display of wedding cakes by Little Miss Cupcakes. The owner, Farah, later shared several stunning and unique wedding cake design trends in the UAE with all the attendees. Kadi Boutique exhibited a range of scented candles that are used at weddings as they last for 15 hours! They also presented all the guests with a cute flower souvenir.
We found several unique photo albums laid out on Rima Hassan Photography‘s table, along with some interesting quotes on marriage. Two gorgeous models wearing stunning bridal gowns by Sponsa were seen walking around the entire store as well. While Abjad Design‘s distinctive invitation cards were beautifully spread across one of the tables, My List’s ‘gift items’ display embellished one section of the store, thus presenting the attendees with some creative inspiration for gift-giving.
After an hour or so, an interactive and educational session commenced which was hosted by Julie, the Founder & CEO of My List, followed by presentations by guest speakers from the wedding industry. A wedding planner, Mennat, from Cloud 9 Weddings & Events initiated the discussion on ‘main wedding decor concerns’ and continued with current trends in the UAE, along with some precious advice for the brides-to-be. Most of the brands listed above shared unique ideas with the audience by displaying and presenting their work, while answering their queries.
Tips and inspiration to plan your dream wedding were in full order, with topics covered ranging from decor ideas to which wedding cake designs are in vogue, from bridal dress designing to trends in the wedding photography industry, and more. All in all, it turned out to be an inspirational event and an even more fun-filled evening for both future brides and other guests!
Love & Positive Vibes,
