Wear red to celebrate Day of Love (Valentine's Day)

Jan '10
Valentine's Day is a time to show your beloved how much they mean to you and why they are so important, but the pressure to pick the right gift can be overwhelming. The Bride Show Abu Dhabi is perfectly timed to bring a wealth of romantic gift ideas for the UAE capital's couples.

Running from 10th to 13th February at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre, The Bride Show Abu Dhabi will bring more than 200 exhibitors showcasing sparkling jewellery, haute couture evening gowns and abayas, handbags, beauty products, confectionary and home accessories.

The event is a one stop shop for brides-to-be planning their big day, but this year will also be the ideal place to purchase Valentine's Day presents which are not always available in the UAE. And anyone who visits the show on the final day, Saturday 13 February, wearing something red to celebrate the day of love will be permitted free entry.

Exclusively launching at The Bride Show Abu Dhabi is the exquisite lingerie line Claire D, designed by well known Lebanese television personality Claire Damaa. The high-end lingerie, never seen in the UAE before, combines silk chiffon, silk satin and lace with Tahitian fresh water pearls to produce one-of-a-kind pieces.

For those who prefer a more traditional gift, but still wish to show how much they care, Forrey & Galland, producers of haute couture chocolates should be their first visit at The Bride Show. Taking part in the Abu Dhabi event for the first time, following three successful years at the Dubai exhibition, Forrey & Galland will delight fiancés and wives.

“A box of our white chocolate rose truffles is the ideal Valentine's Day gift and one of our best sellers,” said Isabelle Jaouen, owner of Forrey & Galland, which established its boutique outlet in Dubai Mall in 2008. “A fusion of white chocolate, almonds and rose petals, it combines chocolate and flowers into a mouth watering indulgence”.

An ideal gift for the girl who has everything is a facial or beauty treatment from Kaya Skin Clinic. Beauty professionals from the well-respected dermatology skin specialists will be available to offer advice and consultancy with facials offered for all skin types.

A host of one-of-a-kind prizes will also be up for grabs. Four top quality diamonds will be given away each day of the exhibition, as well as a designer handbag, a honeymoon to Seoul for three nights, courtesy of Visit Korea, four bridal gift cards worth 1,500dhs from Silkor Laser Medical Centre and a year's membership to the Abu Dhabi Ladies Club worth 4,500dhs.

Furthermore, renowned French design house Arushi will celebrate Valentine's Day by giving away a custom-made off white and pink tulle dress, the finale feature of their fashion show on Thursday 11 February at 8pm, worth AED20,000. Everyone who watches their new collection modelled on the catwalk will be eligible to enter and the dress will be ready for collection in time for Valentine's Day.

Doors open at 2:30pm on Wednesday 10 February and the event is open until 10:30pm every night until Saturday 13 February. Thursday 11 February is reserved for ladies only and children under 12 are not permitted. Entry fee is 10dhs.

The Bride Show Abu Dhabi will be followed by The Bride Show Dubai from 7 to 10 April 2010 at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre.
