  1. Very sad to see this expo is for only Indian and Pakistani weddings. I am forced to buy all my wedding things from Internet such as eBay. Wish this country have more places to buy wedding things for our western weddings. Such a shame!

  2. Most probably, the majority of the population in Dubai nowadays consists of  Indians and Pakistani. Therefore, the vendors cater for their taste and traditions.

    There were however some spa offers and vouchers that may be useful for brides-to-be, but definitely, you may find larger variety of items online.
