Last weekend Olympia London hosted Europe’s largest National Asian Wedding Show, and The Voice of London went along to see what all the fuss was about. Don’t worry if you’re not engaged… We decided to give you 5 reasons to go along to a wedding festival, even if you haven’t got a ring.
1. New profile picture
A perfect opportunity to get a new Instagram pic. Every corner of a wedding show is Instagram worthy and you’ll be a glam spectator anyway. You’ll have your best coat and dress on (or shirt), so get snapping. Plus your followers will be wanting to know what their idol is up to.
2. Free cake
Like any function, the main reason we all go is for the free food. Let’s be real. The most asked question: ‘Will there be food there?’ and what’s better than free cake and cocktails? It will be the the comfort food, for when you’re crying at the fact that you’re not getting married.
3. Birthday party ideas
The next best thing to a wedding. Celebrating a damn queen/king – you. If you want a birthday party like no other, an Indian extravaganza will top any other party. Gold themes, sequins, over the top decorations, perfect.
4. Endless compliments
What we experienced the most were constant compliments, whether they thought we were getting married or whether our make up was genuinely on fleek. Everyone was so nice and you will be made to feel like a queen/king.
5. You’re not getting married, but you can still upstage the broom(bride/groom)
Who knew a world of cosmetic-surgery companies existed purely for weddings and events? Well they do. From botox and body sculpting, to hair transplants and teeth whitening; you really can make that perfect day perfect, even if it isn’t yours.
