About Vogue Wedding Show:
The Indian wedding market is rapidly growing at an annual rate of 25-30 per cent. While wedding fairs are a common feature in recent times, there is nothing that caters solely to affluent families with big marriage budgets. Identifying this need-gap, Vogue India’s exclusive, ‘by invitation only’ Vogue Wedding Show acts as the final arbitrator of luxury for discerning audiences, connecting them to the finest brands in the bridal space.
The Vogue Wedding Show, a specially curated exhibition by Vogue India, featuring the most luxurious and personalized wedding services, was launched in 2013. Given the overwhelming response it received, Vogue India launched The Vogue Bridal Studio in 2014, with an attempt to bring the city’s elite a preview of the main event in August and a chance to interact with distinguished representatives of the fashion and bridal couture industry. As an extension of the event, Vogue India has created the Vogue Wedding Book–a keepsake wedding directory featuring each participating brand editorially. Having a year-long relevance, the book is complementary with the September issue of the magazine.
