A Spooktacular Soiree – Dubai’s Wedding Industry Elite, Connect Over Canapes & Cocktails

It was horrendously beautiful!”

That was the phrase used to describe the latest wedding industry networking event hosted by Bride Club ME and The Arabian Wedding Planning Academy, and we couldn’t agree more!

The “Spooktacular Soiree” is one of the final networking events of the year hosted by Bride Club ME, which invites a select group of wedding industry professionals to mingle. Participants make useful connections, discuss upcoming trends in the industry and get some much-needed relaxation before getting back to the busy wedding season. With its spooky twist, we must admit this Halloween-themed evening might be our favourite to date!

Let’s start with the black and a dash of gold theme photographed and captured on video by Goldfish Photography & Video. From gold skulls to the black and gold rose wedding arch, courtesy of the amazing Big Flowers Dubai, the entire theme conceptualised by Rio at Bride Club ME, was a perfect combination of glamour and quirkiness with a touch of ‘spook’. Who knew that skulls, fake spiders and pumpkins could create such a romantic ambiance? Our fabulous stylists Fete Events did!  They seamlessly turned Bride Club ME’s vision into reality with a touch of florals and beautiful Reve Luxury Furniture rentals.

As guests arrived at The Royal Suite located on the 32nd floor of the H Hotel, they were greeted by a delicious black cocktail and live music from a cellist (provided by Off Broadway Entertainment)playing under a dramatic black chandelier. We then made our way through a black rose decorated hallway adorned with candle lit lanterns into the main event area where we turned our attention to the table settings styled by Fete Events. While some of the decorations may be expected at a Halloween-themed soiree, such as gold skulls, pumpkins and elegant black candles, Fete Events incorporated entirely unique elements including deep purple plumbs and blood red floral arrangements to create a modern and luxurious feel. Their motto “guilty of being different” truly came through in these centrepieces. The table settings were complimented by luxurious gold and black chairs, high cocktail tables, and low level lounge seating provided by Reve Luxury Furniture rentals.

Next to draw our attention was a huge balloon arch provided by Balloons and More ME. The arch was accompanied by a variety of large balloons, all in line with the gold and black theme distributed around the venue. As a bride, I was so impressed with the arrangements that I will definitely be reaching out to Balloons and More ME to see if they can help with my venue styling.

Through the arch we found a glamorous dessert table, where we could sample a range of beautiful treats including black macaroons and a beautiful black and gold wedding cake, all provided by the H Hotel. My wedding diet went out the window for the evening.

My personal highlight was the pamper room, where Be Blow Dry Bar, Henna by Vandana Makar and the H Hotel Spa had come together to offer a truly beautifying experience complete with hair styling, gold and white sparkling henna, nail treatments and massages.

After a successful few hours of networking and presentations from some of the main sponsors (thank you AVISS LLC for the sound and light), we ended the evening on the patio overlooking Dubai’s beautiful night skyline sipping delicious French ‘none alcoholic’ champagne provided by Pearl’s de France. It is a perfect alternative for your event.
