I have been waiting for this one for awhile now. A year to be precise. Vogue Wedding Show 2017 is happening next month in Delhi, and I am super pumped up for attending it for the very first time. I have always loved attending wedding exhibitions. there is so much freshness in outfits, styles, designs, ideas and more that one gets access to under one roof. It’s the perfect place to do wedding shopping if you’re looking for exclusive designs and one of a kind piece for your trousseau.
Vogue Wedding Show is what is called the crème de la crème of all wedding exhibitions. It’s super exclusive, with the top designers and industry experts showcasing their work under one platform. You can shop, consult with the designers themselves all the while having a fabulous time with your family members.
I just came across the participant list recently, and it’s pretty impressive. So if you’re wondering whether you should/should not visit Vogue Wedding Show this year, maybe this list will help you decide better.

The latest Alchemy collection would be on display at the exhibition. If you’re into gota-patti in rich silk fabric, then her stall is a good place to start. Keep in mind, her outfits are on the expensive side.
The autumn/winter 2017 campaign is a tribute to the Bishnoi tribe of Jodhpur. It is inspired by their spiritual reverence for nature. This collection draws its inspiration from nature, specifically from the trees, flora, and fauna of Rajasthan. We aim to make our brides and grooms conscientious about their surroundings to upkeep the traditions of the Bishnoi tribe, and in turn, give back to nature and our roots. – Source: Vogue
