The definition that a wedding is a ceremony where two people are united in marriage is so very clinical. What about the romance, the desire and willingness to share a future together, passion… and wedding plans?
While wedding traditions and customs differ between cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, and social classes, most wedding ceremonies involve:
- an exchange of marriage vows by the couple
- the presentation of symbolic item, and then
- a public proclamation of marriage by an authority figure.
These three basic steps seem simple enough – unless you have had a vison of your perfect day in your mind since you were a little girl. That’s when every shade of ivory gets scrutinized and evaluated, every morsel of cake is tried and tested, and every inch of lace is examined under a microscope.
Kissing Mr Right may be a part of your wedding ceremony, but the “kiss” referred to here stands for “Keep It Simple, Sweetheart!” Instead of traipsing from vendor to vendor – a sure way to lessen the joy of planning your big day – rather visit the 2016 Wedding Expo Durban. From 9h00 to 17h00 on 6 and 7 August 2016 the Moses Mabhida Stadium opens its doors to KZN brides. Tickets cost R80.00 per person and are available online or at the door.
The first The Wedding Expo Durban was a huge success providing brides-to-be with the best experiential wedding shopping adventure in the South Africa. 2016 promises more inspiration, exciting competitions, a brand new fashion podium and bridal makeovers.
