Every woman has a vision of her wedding day that she’s been dreaming up since she was a little girl. But turning that vision into a reality is usually a hassle. In Egypt though to say that planning a wedding is a nightmare is an understatement. If you’ve ever been a bride, or part of the bridal entourage, you’ll know that 90 percent of your time is spent stressing over why the florist got your order wrong, or how you’ll beat the traffic and make your appointment for the hair demo session. The behind the scenes of that gorgeous, ethereal wedding you went to last summer, is one of complete chaos. The Nile Ritz-Carlton though, they know….they know what it’s like and they’ve devised the perfect plan for all the bridezillas out there. And it's the "Say It With A Sparkle" Ritz action plan.

Having struck deals with florists, make-up artists and a few other wedding specialists, the Nile Ritz-Carlton is saving us a great deal of anxiety disorders and time. Now we can actually enjoy the pre-wedding week, and not just run around in a frenzy, trying to remember whether or not we’ve actually put in that order for a dozen bride-shaped cupcakes, for the bachelorette.

Since opening its doors in the 1950’s, the Ritz is practically a part of modern Egypt’s history. And it’s constantly impressing us with its innovative schemes and packages. And with wedding season right around the corner, the hotel experts are one step ahead. The’ve struck up partnerships with bridal couture designers, jewelers and professional hair and make-up artists.

They’re promising  to tailor every wedding to the couple’s vision. So all we have to do now is sit back and fantasize about our fairytale wedding, while they make all of our whims and follies, a reality. In this scenario, the bride always comes out the winner. 

For the brides, booking their special day before the end of June, regardless of the exact date of the wedding party itself, Ritz Carlton offers a chance to win a plethora of awesome gifts. The Nile Ritz-Carlton, will be rewarding the happy couple with awesome prizes that range from bridal make-up done by Zeina El Naggar to bridal packages with Al Sagheer group, in addition to a variety of other giveaways with the likes of Dina Iskandar, and Dina Zaki. Thought that was it? A few more of the prizes even include videography with Ramy Azmy, music with Khaled Hussein, light package with Pro-Lite, and first dance fireworks with Ahmed Essam. So yeah while we don’t disagree with true love being the real gift of life, you won’t catch us saying no to the extra incentives. Besides who doesn’t like a little bling bling, which the Ritz will also be contributing for the grand prize in the form of a 1-carat diamond ring. The ring will be made specially for the occasion in a collaboration between the Nile Ritz-Carlton and Iram Jewelry. And what better way, to commemorate ever lasting love than with a diamond ring.

Did we hear royal suites too? Yup, royal suites are offered on the wedding day, bridal spas, romantic dinners and a complimentary wedding cake! That’s it, we’re sold. They can deal with the wedding, while we sit here binge-eating on wedding cake.

Needless to say, that they’ve got us covered for the venue itself, obviously. Accommodating up to 1000 guests, the Ritz offers both outdoors and indoors venues. For the wedding package, they’ve thought up special honeymoon getaways and are offering to organize the bachelors and bachelorettes. Thank god, because we weren’t sure where we’d be able to retrieve the number of a belly dancer for the entertainment.  

Check them out, here, once you're done mulling it over.
