Mandarin Oriental Singapore’s Your Dazzling Moments Wedding Showcase

In case you missed out on Mandarin Oriental Singapore’s wedding showcase in October, here are the highlights from the magical afternoon.

On 30 October 2016, Mandarin Oriental Singapore welcomed couples to their Your Dazzling Moments wedding showcase for a first-look at their brand new wedding themes for 2017 and partake in a delightful afternoon of bridal runway show by Silhouette the Atelier.

A five-star luxury hotel in the Marina Bay area, Mandarin Oriental Singapore is centrally located in the middle of several shopping malls and the Esplanade, and minutes away from the Central Business District. The luxurious hotel is renowned for their unique fan-shaped exterior and grand ballroom, the Oriental Ballroom, and best recognised for their impeccable service and luxe interiors.

Couples were greeted with light canapés and drinks outside the Oriental Ballroom before they were ushered into the one-of-a-kind ballroom for Silhouette the Atelier’s bridal runway extravaganza. Shaped like a fan, the pillarless Oriental Ballroom seats up to 400 guests for a boisterous wedding dinner and comes with an exclusive cocktail foyer where your guests can mingle privately during the reception. For more intimate celebrations, couples can opt for the Garden and Atrium Suites. The Garden Suite features full-length windows and seats up to 130 guests while the Atrium Suite boasts a 3.8 metre high ceiling and seats up to 180 guests.

The hotel’s four brand new wedding themes, Enchanted, Allure, Splendour and Whimsical, were beautifully showcased in the Oriental Ballroom where couples were free to peruse and explore the set-ups as they entered. Inspired by the diverse personalities of brides, the themes range from sweet romantic soft shades to bright Summer garden tones and classic white and gold elegance to passionate reds and gold.

Minda, Silhouette the Atelier’s designer, opened the afternoon’s show with an introduction of the exclusive collection designed for the showcase, sharing with us the inspiration behind the intricate details of the gowns. The collection comprised of a stunning line-up of exquisite bridal gowns in different silhouettes and colours specially crafted to flatter Asian brides.

The subtle crystal and sequin beadwork on the gowns glistened charmingly as the models sashayed from one end of the ballroom to the other as brides-to-be craned their necks for a closer look and a longer peek at the beautifully made gowns. But the gown that took everyone’s breath away was a dazzling champagne-gold, full sequenced sheath gown with delicate shoulder straps and a romantic sweetheart neckline. It was just simply stunning. The afternoon’s activities came to an end as couples adjourned to the foyer for a delicious buffet spread and private one-on-one consultations and tour of the bridal suite with the hotel’s wedding planners.
