East met west in a cornucopia of tulle, silk, satin and lace as wedding designers, planners and events coordinators showcased their wares and services at IWED 2013 Exhibition this weekend.

Fashion shows on the catwalk exhibited wedding abayas and dresses to suit all tastes. Glam You Image’s Elisabete Reis presented a montage of dresses from various designers from the Gulf to Brazil, showing dresses for the brides, bridesmaids, mothers of the bride and flower girls. Her speciality was to show how with the right dress, women of any shape and size can look beautiful and elegant on that special day.

Wedding design houses from around the world presented a dazzling display of unique wedding couture ranging from the classic to the outlandish in a bid to gain prestige here in Qatar where weddings are a huge investment and a momentous affair in any household.
