On June 1, Dulhania Bazaar (DB) organized its annual bridal expo at The Phoenician Resort in Scottsdale with over 900 attendees and 100 vendors.
This annual expo is dedicated to connecting businesses with customers who are looking to plan one unforgettable wedding or event. Vendors ranged from wedding photographers to cake providers, jewelers, flower shops, stage decorators, clothing boutiques and so on.
Shy Khan, founder of DB, started her career with event planning, and then a little while into it, she realized the brilliant idea of creating a one stop shop for wedding and event planning in the form of DB Expo. Today, her venture is known to be the largest South Asian bridal expo in the U.S. This year DB Expo celebrates its fifth year and the event was no less than a party itself.
The Phoenician Resort was overflowing with families, couples and even singles enjoying the exciting atmosphere of wedding and event planning all in one place.
The event unfolded in multiple segments. Guests signed in and collected their DB red shopping bags, and then entered the big hall to browse what the vendors had to offer. The DJ made sure to play hit numbers to blow the roof off the party. At 2 p.m., bride and groom fashion attracted everyone to the center of the room.
This was no ordinary fashion show. Classical Indian dancers performed gracefully to popular Bollywood songs while models walked the ramp in beautiful traditional and contemporary dresses.
The showstopper was not one of the models from the fashion show; Malinder Tooray burned the stage with her unstoppable dhol playing skills. Her beat encouraged the audience to join her up on the stage for a dance.
The party wasnâ€™t over yet. Famous Pakistani singer, Jawad Ahmad, made a humble entrance and sang his legendary tracks making the event memorable. After a short meet greet with the artist, the fifth DB Expo came to a close.
