Blissful Brides - - WEDDING MADE EASY -

Bliss­ful Out­door Wed­ding Show (BOWS)

Once again, the

graced the field ad­ja­cent to Tan Quee Lan Street for three days; pre­sent­ing a colour­ful dis­play of wed­ding gowns, dé­cor, venues and var­i­ous other wed­ding ser­vice re­tail­ers. Shel­tered un­der an air-con­di­tioned out­door tent, which covers over 2,200 square me­tres, cou­ples are pro­vided easy ac­cess to over 50 wed­ding mer­chants in one lo­ca­tion.

As ex­pressed by Des­mond, one of the grooms-to-be present, the event also serves as a great place to com­pare prices be­tween ven­dors. Des­mond and his fi­ancée, who bought a pho­tog­ra­phy pack­age from France Paris Bri­dal, said, “We al­ready had a rough idea of which pack­age we wanted to go for. Af­ter check­ing out the other booths and com­par­ing them with each other, we de­cided to go ahead with our ini­tial choice.”

Since its in­au­gu­ral show in 2005, BOWS — or­gan­ised by Bliss­ful Brides in part­ner­ship with Nanyang Inc — has grown to be one of the most highly-an­tic­i­pated wed­ding shows in Sin­ga­pore. Held thrice yearly, the show gives plenty of soon-to-be spouses am­ple op­por­tu­nity and time to se­cure the best pack­ages for their big day.

For ev­ery­one’s en­joy­ment, a strict “no tout­ing” rule has been set up for the mer­chants. This means that at­ten­dees are able to move around leisurely and browse through the var­i­ous booths with no pres­sure to pur­chase. Ad­di­tion­ally, with lo­cal band Mu­sic Im­pro­vi­sa­tion Col­lec­tive ser­e­nad­ing guests and ven­dors alike with sweet tunes and love songs, walk­ing into BOWS felt like en­ter­ing a fairy­tale dream.
