The region's premier wedding and lifestyle event is bigger and better than ever...

The 17th edition of the ever-popular Bride Abu Dhabi drew together fashionistas, brides-to-be and VIP guests at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre for an immersive four-day extravaganza. Aside from the unmissable runway shows exhibiting this season's best bridalwear offerings, a line-up of fashion, beauty and health-focused activities and entertainment boasted something for everybody - from a photography workshop to a live music performance. Here are just some of the best bits...

1. Runway shows by leading designers

Arguably the event's main attraction, visitors flocked to the catwalks to marvel at the latest collections from the brands of the moment, local and international alike. Esteemed names like Atelier Zuhra, Lamia Abi Nader, Garimon Roferos Couture and Apple Wang showcased their designs, bringing traditional white gowns, subtle black numbers and flamboyant, sequined ensembles to the Bride Abu Dhabi runway.

It's not uncommon to see well-known faces wandering around at Bride Abu Dhabi, with the event often attracting today's top influencers and designers. But guests were in for a real treat this year, when Her Highness Sheikha Jawaher bint Khalifa Al Khalifa, member of the board of trustees of Bahrain's World Youth Business Club, paid a visit to the event. She took some time to check out the clothes, makeup, jewellery and food on offer, and even spent some time with the little ones in The Kids Zone!
