WITH 13 days to go before the “Festival of Love” — The Sunday Mail Bridal Dinner — the good news keeps coming.
In appreciation of the current cash crunch and with pleas from people about the pricing, organisers have decided to make it more affordable.
The ticket prices have been slashed from US$50 per head to US$50 per couple. A bargain by whatever definition.
For an event that boasts renowned marriage counsellor Pastor Davison Kanokanga as guest speaker, Dr Rebecca Chisamba as host, and Dr Oliver Mtukudzi as the entertainment, the Festival of Love is an even not to be missed.
For the same amount, couples get the promised top class catering and entertainment in the ambience of the five-star Rainbow Towers Hotel in Harare.
“We have had an overwhelming response from couples and individuals who have expressed their desire to attend the dinner.
“However, most of them have pointed out that the event is too expensive, so we have taken that into consideration and reduced the ticket prices,” said chief organiser Charity Gwata-Chirume.
“We are doing this event for our valued customers, which is why we have listened to their pleas because at the end of the day they are the ones that support The Sunday Mail brand.”
Gwata-Chirume is confident that the event will be an overwhelming success.
“Our team has been working tirelessly to ensure that everything will be in place when the day arrives. People should come and listen to words of wisdom about marriage, enjoy the food, the music and celebrate with the best bride of 2016,” she said.
Tickets for the event are already on sale at Herald House and to avoid disappointment, people are encouraged to confirm their tables before space runs out.
While Dr Mtukudzi is set to serenade music lovers on the night, this exclusive affair will not just be about entertainment.
It will also be about family-building, which is why celebrated marriage counsellor Pastor Kanokanga is on the programme.
Host Dr Chisamba — who runs an immensely popular column in The Sunday Mail and has her own television talk show — has promised to dish out her best to guests.
Some of the topics to be explored on the night include revenge cheating, in-laws boundaries, monetary issues in marriage, conjugal rights and tips for improving communication between couples.
On the day, a raffle will be conducted where one lucky ticket-holder will walk away with a free wedding worth US$10 000.
The Sunday Mail Bridal competition is one of the many initiatives championed by Zimbabwe’s largest weekly newspaper as a way of promoting family values.
