Last May 8 and 9, 2010 at SM City Cebu Trade Hall, Cebu once again was treated to the 2nd Cebu Wedding & Debut Fair called “The Ultimate Wedding Destination”. True to its name, this year’s showcase of the latest trends and newest styles in the wedding and debut industry houses the most comprehensive gathering of wedding and debut suppliers.

The Fair aims to provide the best merchandising platform for buyers, merchants and suppliers in the wedding & debut industry to meet with a mass of clients which may unfold and develop contacts, businesses, co-operations, brand promotion and other business opportunities. Not only it increased exposure and built name recognition to increase a supplier’s traffic but also promoted Cebu as the Ultimate Wedding Destination and can be at par with international suppliers such as engagement rings from Serendipity Diamonds and more.

Another favorite wedding accessory designer of mine, Joann Lim of Joann’s Gallery, was part of the exhibit and so was mammy Dexter Alazas who supplied the gowns for the show. Check out Joann’s super gorgeous wedding accessories from shoes, headbands and fascinators!
