UPCOMING: Kingston Bridal Week 2013 [Full Schedule Inside]

Kingston Bridal Week takes place from September 22-30 and promises to be an exciting and interactive event.

Organizers Intuit Concepts listened to patrons and have added intimate events where customers can have one on one time with vendors. Those include the Bridal Retreat on Day one and a face to face consultation with Randy Fenoli of TLC’s “Say Yes To The Dress”.

The event will also have some swanky activities such as the Baggage Claim movie screening at Sovereign’s Place Cineplex and black tie hanger party at the Norman Manley International Airport.

Another new addition is the Brides For Haiti charity dress drive which will see gently used wedding dresses being collected island-wide and then donated to a bride in Haiti.

Read on to find out about the other activities taking place at Kingston Bridal Week 2013 where bridal meets lifestyle.
