Celebrating Vivaha 2005 is here and this time - after grossing Rs.600 million last year - it's a mélange of everything that can get into the wedding planner in Asian, if not Indian, style.
Beginning Friday till Aug 8 this is a mega carnival at the Taj Palace Hotel here, with designers sharing a place in the sun along with the best cosmetic makers, tourism boards, watch makers, jewellery brands et al.
Delhi being considered the biggest market in the north - with more than 125,000 people visiting last year, the event promises to showcase an elitist exhibition that reflects the most pompous, the most powerful and the finest in anything you can lay your hands upon for a gala wedding affair.
"While the elite want to organise gala weddings, they do not wish to face the hassles of organising them. They also do not want to get bogged down with visits to different suppliers of goods and services before exercising their options," says Tarun Sarda, CEO, Vivaha Interactive, who brought in 80 national and international exhibitors last year.
The magnificence of the event is going to resemble a great Indian Bazaar where you can walk in, state your claim and get started from the bottomline to the cutting edge of perfection.
Among designers displaying exotic trousseau collections are Khushali Kumar, Pakistani designer Nadia Lakdawala, Moscio by Ranjeeta Chaturvedi, Tantra by Ratna Jain, Change by Archana Jain, Naina Javeri, Priya and Chintan, Inaara, Prateeksha by Renu Dadlani, Dar-e-Aab by Sonia Mahajan, Parampara by Sagar Mehra, Ragini Singhania and Renu Nigam, to name only a few.
International luxury brands of watches like Harry Winston, Audemars Piguet, Dubey & Schaldenbrand, Cartier are there.
So are international hair care brand Lazartigue, cosmetic expert Revlon, Stanley Boutique for all leather requirements for your home and Payal Khorana whose label Rain brings the latest in footwear and bags.
Splurging on jewellery is one of the facets. Renowned designers and brands at the exhibition are - Adora, Gitanjali Jewels, Instyle, Orra, Ghatiwala Jewellers, Shri Hari Diagems, Naqsh, Diagold and more.
Tourism Australia, Malaysian Tourism and Star Cruises have come to give you the time of your life with exotic honeymoon destinations.
For invitation cards and trousseau packaging there is Shalini Beriwal with her label Magnificence, Ashoka Cards and Poddar Cards while wedding planners like Shaadi Online, Wedding Bells and Moment Makers along with Touchwood entertainment - leaders in wedding entertainment - can help organise your perfect wedding.
Says Sarda, "This is our third consecutive year of exhibitions. Each exhibition, in Delhi and Mumbai, has been an experience for our clients, as much as it has been for us.
"Our clients have grown by leaps and bounds, in their own words, primarily by their participation in Celebrating Vivaha and the rest of course, was there own marketing efforts and initiatives. They met us as fledglings and look at them now - they are masters in their own right. It is a great feeling of satisfaction for us."
The success of a wedding today is all down to the planning, research and attention to detail. Vivaha 2005 offers you all this and more.
