'Ultimate Wedding Planning Party' 2013 - win tickets + special offer

There are bridal expo events... and then there is the 'Ultimate Wedding Planning Party' [UWPP].

I have been fortunate to be a part of this event almost since its inception - my friend Kim Veverka is the brains behind the premier bridal event, and I have seen first-hand just how much it differs from your run of the mill bridal fair.

No, the UWPP is SO much more.

It's an intimate, classy event - set at the most romantic, breathtaking venue in Australia: the Sydney Opera House.

Guests are treated as VIP guests. Event partners take time with you to answer questions [when I was a bride almost ten years ago, I had gazillions].

The fashion parade features the cream of Australian and international designers for brides to be, and grooms to be:

- Karen Willis Holmes
- Steven Khalil
- Maria Chiodo
Henry Roth & Michelle Roth
- Kristi Bonnici Bridal Accessories
- Ermenegildo Zegna
- PeepToe Shoes
- Rachel Gilbert

To get a feel for the fashion parade, feast your eyes on the parade from the last UWPP:

You'll watch the beautiful parade from these seats:

And the atmosphere will be just like this:

And of course, there'll be inspiring resortwear ideas for your dreamy honeymoon:

The annual ‘Ultimate Wedding Planning Party’ is in its FIFTH year, and will be held on Wednesday May 8, 2013, at Opera Point Marquee, Sydney Opera House - which guarantees the event to be nothing at all ordinary.

What I adore about the event is that soon-to-be brides and grooms can gain valuable, hugely inspiring ideas from Sydney’s wedding industry specialists, and listen to pearls of wisdom, based on years of VIP wedding experiences. It’s quite breathtaking to witness the Opera Point Marquee transformed into a fairytale playground each year; this time, the theme is the ‘Vintage and Classic’ bride.

The crème de la crème of event magicians will be on hand to give advice, and it'll look just like this:

The atmosphere of the event is breathtaking, both inside and out:

Guests at the ‘Ultimate Wedding Planning Party’ will be treated like stars: think champagne and canapés served by ARIA Catering.

You can wander through the inspiring and visually gorgeous wedding displays and interactive booths, where you can chat one-on-one with the industry’s leading bridal suppliers, who are all at the forefront of both Australian and international VIP weddings, and therefore can share the very latest, unique ideas for the biggest celebration of a couple's life.

Wedding planner to Sydney’s A-list Anthony Del Col (Staging Connections) will also be on stage sharing his wedding day advice, as well as Rachael Bentick (Inlighten Photography) giving her best photographic tips and Abraham Joffe (Untitled Films) sharing tips on capturing your wedding through film.

Industry experts from ARIA Catering, Sweet Art, Vintage Kitchen, and De La Mod Stationary will chat face to face guests, who will also enjoy pampering from prestigious brands including Bobbi Brown and Jo Malone.

Brides and grooms will be in the running to win highly covetable lucky door prizes, to top off the luxury feel of the event, each guest will receive a gift bag filled with wedding day gifts, valued at over $500. Yes. It's one of the best gift bags I have ever seen, and I've seen plenty.

The Ultimate Wedding Planning Party aims to inspire and entice its guests through a creative-driven and visually tantalising evening of effortless elegance, style - and above all, to enjoy it all at Australia’s most iconic and breathtaking location.
