The 12th Tokyo Bridal Industrial Fair opened on Tuesday with a focus on the special visual effects of wedding ceremony.

Bridal service promotion companies had invented visual tables which give guests of wedding ceremony an opportunity to enjoy the change of light while savoring the dishes at table. Visitors crowded the two tables to wait for the changing of visual effects during the day.

Wedding garment is always in the spotlight of a wedding ceremony. Pictures of new wedding gown by Yumi Katsura, a pioneer of bridal fashion, are also on display. The gown features diamond- like tiny LED bulbs which generates light without giving out any heat. There are about 3,000 those bulbs in the gown, which was released by Katsura in July. Brides wearing the gown may sparkle in dark like diamond.

In addition, the fair also showcases some special decorations like LED floor lamps and table lamps which glow in different colors. Promoters also shed new "light" on the background of the wedding event with 3D visual effect programs or the programs which can easily switch backgrounds to surprise participants.

The two-day fair has attracted 120 companies from Japan, the Republic of Korea and Thailand. It is expected to attract some 20, 000 visitors, an organizer surnamed Kitajima told Xinhua.

According to Kitajima, this year would see some 700,000 couples getting married in Japan, and a half of the couples might choose to host a wedding ceremony.
