Le Meridien’s wedding fair proves a success
Chiang Mai wedding studio Koo Rak presented
a selection of wedding attire for the bridal couple.
Le Meridian’s first wedding fair scored with a number of new ideas
to tempt brides and the parents who will be paying for the great day!
are stunning wedding dresses on display at Le Meriden’s ‘Love in the City’
wedding fair, being worn by equally stunning models.
The ‘Love in the City’ fair, held in the hotel’s Convention Hall, was
determined to avoid the usual clichés at such events, but, even so, started
, as do all Wedding Fairs, with a fashion parade of dresses to die for. A
make-up workshop followed, hosted by a number of ‘famous brand’ cosmetic
companies, whose booths provided a tempting display of everything a bride
would need to look as lovely as possible on her wedding day. Definitely not
a ‘usual cliché’ was the opening of the hotel’s Royal Suite in the 22nd
floor, all 250 square metres of it, to interested viewers…what a place to
spend the honeymoon night!
The booths themselves, manned by representatives from hotels, wedding studio
companies, wedding and bridesmaids’ dress shops, jewellery stores, and spas,
provided displays of all the necessities which go to make up the perfect
wedding, The only difficulty for the happy couple might be the choice!
Mothers’ Day bamboo-planting at Ban Papai village
On August 12, the birthday of Her Majesty Queen Sirikit and Mothers’
Day, a Friendship Tree Planting will take place at Ban Papai
self-sufficiency village in Doi Saket, to honour both anniversaries. The
event is part of a local campaign for a clean and safe environment.
A visit to Ban Papai is a chance to get a break from the city and spend time
amidst beautiful rural scenery. The project involves the eventual planting
of 20,000 bamboos; these amazing grasses have been, for centuries, Asia’s
staple provision of shoots for eating, material for furniture, traditional
house building, scaffolding, leaves for fertilising, and many other uses,
and are the symbol of Ban Papai village.
The cost of the event will be 100 baht, and will include lunch at the
village’s meeting place. Directions are as follows:- take highway 118, the
Doi Saket road, turn right to road 1007 to Doi Saket, where you will see the
large temple on the top of the hill. Turn right at the 1st traffic light.
Pass Doi Saket District Office, then take the first left and follow the blue
sign with white letters to Papai Home Stay, 9 kilometers from this turn. The
event will begin at 8.30 a.m., all are welcome.
