On January 12th Dhamaka Entertainment hosted its Bollywood Bridal Show. This started off the New Year with a burst of opulence and inspirational designs as well as sumptuous decorations and services to cater to every couple’s desires.
One of the organisers Baljit Sandhu stated to India-West, “We wanted to bring all the top-notch vendors of Southern California into one room and make it easier for the brides to shop around for vendors. We’re planning to do this each year.” The Bollywood Bridal Show covered every component necessary for an exquisite and breath-taking ceremony and reception.
The day featured two main fashion shows. Firstly the latest in Indian wedding trends by Sakshi Dosaj’s Dreams Collections. During this show the singer Charanjeet “CJ” Singh serenaded the models with classic Bollywood medleys. The second show highlighted the latest and hotest Pakistani fashions coordinated by Samya Asim. Amongst the vast array of designer bridal wear, performers excitedly took to the central stage to show off their talents. Amongst these dancers were the company Karmagraphy who put on an exciting and visually stunning performance.
There was also a dholak player and belly dancers who whirled around the stage in a myriad of colour displaying their talent in the hope to be hired as wedding reception entertainment. 50 of the top vendors filled the main hall at the Crowne Plaza Hotel offering a range of different wedding services. Whilst shopping for the perfect outfits and inspirations, guests were invited to taste the delicacies from Tamarind of London, Sangam Fresh Paan and Natraj Catering which offered samples from their menu such as Tandoori Chicken and Chocolate Samosas to name a few.
Baljit Sandhu estimated that 5,000 people visited the Bollywood Bridal Show, and he hopes to put on the Bridal Fashion Show every year with bigger crowds and more vendors.
