My Kismet Indian Wedding Exhibition Experience:

I attended a wedding exhibition in India some time ago (see post here) and loved it! Recently I got a chance to attend a Canadian one too called the Kismet Indian Bridal Wedding Exhibition. I am also going to attend another Indian Wedding Exhibition in Canada next Sunday called Suhaag (tickets are free online only so book them now). It’s supposed to be bigger and better than Kismet!

This post is going to be picture heavy (over 40 pictures I believe!). The people were sweet and let us take pictures freely so I clicked over a hundred! At the exhibition in India they were quite rude and possessive so pictures weren’t allowed, though I sneakily took some 😉

Keep reading for pictures of cakes, suits, lehegas, beautiful decoration and more! Scroll down till the end because I saved the best for the last 🙂

Kismet Indian Wedding Exhibition

The cakes were beautiful! All of the cakes below are from ‘Fine Cakes by Zehra‘.

Look at the cake below with the cinderella type window made on it. Even the shade of blue reminds me of cinderella’s gown.

Beautiful Indian Wedding CakeI loved the multi-tiered cakes. One cake with around 5-7 tiers cost $4500!

I loved the one with red roses too. They looked so elegant and vibrant against the white.

The best one was the one with the Indian bride drawn on it. They even lined the border of the cake with a rhinestone adorned ribbon.

The cakes below were from some other bakery whose name I forgot. They were nice but nothing compared to Zehra’s cakes. Hers were so unique!

Free Samples! 🙂 Me and me cousin tried them all! I liked the red velevet ones best.

They were giving out free cupcakes to anyone who liked their Facebook page.

Moving on to clothes: They had a bridal fashion show in the beginning. We arrived late so got sucky seats.

Satya Paul Canada had a stall there. The model below is wearing a lehenga sari. It was flowy like a skirt from the bottom and she has the pallu draped around her and fit onto her hand like a glove. I loved the net sleeves.

Besided the Satya Paul stall everything all the other clothes stalls were just ordinary. But the decoration made up for that (loads of pictures in the end).

The suit below had a sweetheart neckline made from a shimmery golden cloth. The remaining neck and sleeve area was covered with golden lace with rose imprints. The rest of suit below the hip area was made from baby pink net. The lady who owned the stall said it was from Lakme Fashion Week straight off the models. Dunno if that’s true but it was pretty. However I didn’t like the dupatta with it. It was orange in colour and looked a little odd.

There were some hair and makeup stalls too but I didn’t click too many pictures of those.

I didn’t like any of the invitations there. They only had one booth for invitations and not much variety.

One other thing I didn’t like was the mehendi. There were many booths there and I went through their design books but they were pretty average. They were doing it complimentary there so I did get it done but removed it immediately.

Coming to the best part: Decor! OMG! They had all sorts of colour coordination’s there and different themes too.

Blue and white wedding decoration

They had some dark decor in the colour black too. It’s quite popular here but I’m a fan of more vibrant colours.

I loved the table chandelier lamp centre pieces and the use of pearls in glasses.

The table below had a centre piece made from tree branches which was unique.

I loved the chandeliers and the oval mirrors on the walls.

Chandeliers for wedding decoration

I loved the combination of golden, magenta and red below.

Okay, now coming to the stuff I loved most! The next two pictures are my second fave. I loved how they had so many different colours and then one simple white sofa in the middle. The floating candles in the wine glasses were nice too.

The two pictures above were from Karma Designs, Toronto.

Now coming to my absolute fave:

Vintage golden pink wedding decoration

I LOVED the vintage golden and pink table decoration! It had pretty pink roses (my fave flowers) and candles floating in wine glasses.I loved the lamp as the center piece too.

The white plates paired with golden cutlery looked very nice. The glasses had golden rims too. Each plate had a small gift box as a thank you return gift.

There was a wire dress form next to the table which added to all the girliness.

They has pretty pearl curtains too. I’m thinking of doing that as a DIY soon.

The vintage pink and golden decoration above was from Nisha Chandra Events, Toronto. She has a seminar coming up on October 6th which I can’t wait to attend!

Comparison between the Indian and Canadian Wedding Exhibitions: The Canadian one was different from the one in India but both were good in their own way. Overall the clothes like suits, sarees, lehengas at the Canadian exhibition weren’t as good as the ones from India. The stock they keep here is old. If you want the latest trends you have to go to India as they are much better there. However, the cakes and decoration are out of this world here in Canada. They are so beautiful! I definitely want to get married here in Canada. I would shop for the clothes in India though before hand. I enjoyed the Canadian exhibition A LOT more! 🙂

Other events I’m going to:

Suhaag Indian Wedding Exhibition: Sunday, September 29th, 2013

Nisha Chandra Event Decoration Seminar: Sunday October 6th, 2013

I also made two Instagram videos:
