Wedding Season officially begins in September in Jamaica. September is the time when the weather seems to be most favourable give or take a few afternoon showers. To Commemorate “Wedding Season” a team of talented, innovative individuals have created “Kingston Bridal Week”. The event gets its name because of the location in Jamaica. Kingston is the capital of Jamaica and is the hot spot of the Island for various creative events like Kingston Bridal Week. This year the KBW has changed things up to suit people from all aspects of society and of course the brides.
Every Girl dreams of her Fairy-tale wedding. Everything is perfect, the décor is something to behold like that in a Midsummers Night Dream. The Dress has been carefully selected and it fits like a glove. Imagine all that, but on an Island Paradise where the weather is warm and the air is fresh and crisp.
The event which has seen several successful stagings throughout the years has had one location at the Hilton Hotel in Kingston, now has several venues! Kingston Bridal Week goes from September 22-29, 2013 and has been dubbed as “more than just a wedding show”. The exciting 8 day event features Fashion Shows with some of the Caribbean’s most talented designers, A Honeymoon show and an exciting Swimwear Show. Making his debut this year for the Swimwear Show segment is Roger Gary who will be showcasing his latest line “Aqua Couture”.
Kingston Bridal Week is where Brides, Brides to be and all those who love a quality show come to be informed, entertained and transported to a “Bridal Paradise’ so they can know what to do when that big day comes.
The headliner for this years show is Randy Fenoli, TLC Star of “Randy to the Rescue”, “Say “Yes to the Dress”, “Randy Knows Best” and author of “It’s all about the Dress”. Randy will be playing host to the event and is happy to be visiting the Island.
