The Fairmont Heliopolis & Towers is gearing up for the fourth edition of the eternally popular Wedding Festival. Taking place over two days – on December 1st and 2nd – the 2013 edition brings together more top names in fashion, hair and make-up from across Egypt, giving future brides an easier entry into the stressful world of wedding planning, and alleviating some of those inevitable bridezilla symptoms.

This year, the scope of exhibitors covers everything from bridal wear and florists, to caterers and several specialist wedding publications and magazines. The highlight of the festival’s first day, however, comes courtesy of popular Cairo designer, Hany El Behairy. The acclaimed fashion pioneer is considered a trailblazer of haute couture in the Middle East and has been working on his craft since the tender age of 15. With his designs having graced shows and festivals across the world, El Behairy’s success is in part owed to his celebration of the Oriental woman through his fashion – a unique and fresh approach that has seen him win several awards and, on the first day of the event, special guests will get an exclusive preview of his latest collection.

On the second day, select invitees will witness the stalwart of the hairdressing industry, Mohamed Al Sagheer, graciously assemble a lavish hair styling show, where attendants can observe the latest and most popular hair trends of the season. Another special activity will be the gala dinner that, in classic Fairmont style, is sure to be a spectacular spread of international cuisine created by their outstanding chefs.

While much of the program is reserved for exclusive guests, the Wedding Festival hosts a variety of exhibition kiosks with an immense display of wedding-themed businesses. Everything from magazines, lighting and sound, photography, catering, fashion, makeup artists and hair stylists will be there to help inspire brides-to-be, as well as offer consultation services. Guests who are interested in starting their own business can also use this exhibition as a chance to network and learn more about the ins-and-outs of the wedding planning industry.

With many opportunities open to guests, the 4th annual Wedding Festival, which will take place  Canyon Ballroom and Canyon Foyer Area , is sure to be an enlightening experience for brides, entrepreneurs and fashionistas alike. To get your invitation for the extravagant two-day festival, call 16989.
