A one-stop wedding expo at Baisago University

Miss Kay’s Touch Event Planners will host a Le Gardenia Wedding Expo this Saturday at Baisago University in Gaborone in a bid to embrace the essence of forever lasting marriages.

Event director, Kaone Malete noted that the mandate of the expo is to bring all the services regarding both the wedding and marriage under one roof. “We want to bring the whole marriage package to the customers in one place and we expect marriage counsellors, beauty and make-up artists, wedding cakes, jewellery and flower bouquet to mention a few,” explained Malete. 

She added that their event would be the first of that nature in the country and therefore the newly-weds and those planning on getting married should come to utilise this platform as well as those who trade in wedding services. 

The event will also be graced by Pastor Joseph Mundambu who will address marriage issues, as well as Siya Ngcangca from South Africa, who is the author of ‘Before you get married’. Malete said that they have been observing high divorce rates in the country and therefore this unique wedding expo could be helpful for people other than just getting them excited for weddings that end in vain. 

The day will also be filled with various activities to indulge and revive love as well as offering fun moments for the day. Thus there would be games, bouquet toss by the bride which will win a make-up voucher by Gorge make-up and the best dressed couple will win a cake voucher by Cakes For You. 

On the other hand, there would be a local company that makes rings and would also give out a ring voucher for the game; ‘how well do you know your partner’. The exhibiting stalls would also be judged and the winning stall will win a precious advertising prize to be announced on the day.

Marketing Executive of the event Gabriella Garaba expressed gratitude towards their sponsors, saying that the event will turn into a dream come true because of their help. She applauded BaIsago University for offering the venue and the multi-wedding based companies that would also give away three vouchers each to enhance the event and make it memorable. 

Cakes For You, Gorge Make-up, and Barona Jewellery will all give three of their products as vouchers while White Lace Events will discount 50 percent for their décor to the winners and Glow up studio would also give three vouchers of 50 percent discount on their wedding gowns.

The esteemed event would end in a fashion show parade that will showcase wedding gowns and what is termed as second attire, as designed by the showcasing designers. General dress code of the event is ‘dressed up for a wedding occasion’ and no jeans would be tolerated at the event as the best dressed would get an award. 

Special for the stalls is still open until July 27th where Garden stalls go for P500.00 and VIP stalls for P700.00. Tickets for the event sell for P50.00 and they can be purchased via contact numbers; 77133275/75374425. The event anticipates 50 exhibitors and close to 1000 people to attend the lovely event.
