Make Your Dream Wedding A Reality at The New Paper Wedding Planner 2013

Gowns and kisses galore at VivoCity

Singapore, 8 April 2013 - Love will be in the air at The New Paper Wedding Planner 2013. Organised by Singapore Press Holdings' CATS Classified and supported by Marriage Central, the three-day event will be held from 12 to 14 April at VivoCity's Central Court.

Into its 11th year, the popular biannual event will bring together sponsors and exhibitors for soon-to-wed couples. With a wide array of wedding related products and services, the event aims to make wedding preparations a hassle-free process. 

A brand-new, fun-filled contest will test couples' endurance on 13 April, Saturday. Called Kiss and Win, participating couples will challenge each other in an attempt to lock lips the longest. The last three couples left standing will win cash and prizes from Love & Co. and Royal Plaza on Scotts worth over $5,000.

Couples can also look forward to a comprehensive selection of wedding offerings from exhibitors like bridal boutiques, hotels and other venue providers, restaurants, as well as establishments specialising in jewellery and beauty. They can enjoy special promotions from various exhibitors, and participate in a Buyers’ Draw, where there will be more than $7,000 worth of prizes to be won. A ring pillow worth $20 will be given away with any purchase (while stocks last), and the first 800 couples who join Marriage Central’s mailing list will receive an exclusive goodie bag.

There will also be a stunning bridal fashion show by Yvonne Creative Bridal on Saturday and Sunday at 4pm. Models will don the latest designs in wedding gowns and evening wear, allowing would-be brides to short-list their preferred gowns easily off the runway. 

On Sunday, visitors will be serenaded by local group Acoustic Saturday. It will feature a live band with string music playing familiar tunes to get everyone in the mood for love.

The official sponsors for this event are Love & Co. and Royal Plaza on Scotts.
