Celebration of Love: not your average showcase

Final parade from day 2 bridal fashion show.

Last night St. Regis Jakarta concluded its 3-day luxury wedding showcase entitled Celebration of Love in its Astor ballroom. They created this event because St. Regis believes that a dream wedding deserves the utmost attention to details in planning and impeccable service. As such, this exquisite fair offers exceptional wedding destinations within Marriott Bonvoy’s Portfolio of Hotels and Resorts in Indonesia such as The St. Regis Bali, The Laguna, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Nusa Dua, Bali, The Ritz-Carlton Bali, Mandapa, a Ritz-Carlton Reserve, Bali, and of course The St. Regis Jakarta itself.

Complementing the beautiful destinations, the wedding showcase was supported by a host of distinguished ateliers to assist in wedding conceptualization and planning from leading Indonesian wedding organizer, Multi Kreasi Enterprise, the visionary decorator Stupa Caspea and Lotus Design, to Italian luxury men’s suite CANALI and bespoke accessories and shoes from NOMA and Thang Shoes.

What sets this event apart from other similar exhibition is the private chambers. Inside potential clients can have a more serious and deeper conversation with designers. In CANALI chamber, for instance, choice of suite type, fabrics (and even buttons), and measurements were made to ensure the couple’s special day is nothing but perfection. It is worth mentioning that in CANALI, all fabrics are Italian made. Tailoring is made in Italy, and it takes approximately two months to finish a suit. If you are interested, CANALI has boutiques in Plaza Indonesia and Pacific Place.

A Singapore, Indonesia and Southeast Asia’s top international designer bridal store, The Proposal bridal house, showcased their well-known luxury bridal brands such as ELIE SAAB, Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Vera Wang Bride, Reem Acra and more. Each of the dresses has been carefully curated and handpicked to match the persona of each bride.They also brought to live the wedding gowns in two fashion shows on the 25th and 26th.

In addition, throughout the event, a selection of refreshments were provided, including assorted canapé such as chicken rolled with mushroom duxelle and beef blackpepper in puff, and a variation of non-alcohol and alcohol drinks. They also serve their signature cocktail Violet Hour, only served when the sun sets in, which is a blend of Martini, Cointreau, Mancino Vermouth and Violettes. Also served is Batavia Mary; a Bloody Mary inspired by local ingredients, which in Indonesia includes sambal (chilli paste), with peanut cracker as the after-taste.
