MY GOOD friend Dwight Morana Jr., the very active secretary of WEPON (Wedding and Event Planners Organization of Negros, Inc.), invited me to the opening of a bridal fair “to end the June brides’ fever” at the posh L'Fisher Hotel last week.
The event was spearheaded by WEPON, led by its pretty president Pinky Mirano-Ocampo, in partnership with L'Fisher Hotel.
As expected, it was a success and it helped couples, who will be marrying in a few months, decide among many suppliers who are essentials on the success of their wedding.
The exhibitors at the bridal fair were suppliers from coordinators, photo and video, flowers, emcees and others like: DA Works Events & Weddings by Dwight Morana Jr.; My Choice Party Shop by Pinky Mirano-Ocampo; Personal Touches by Ellen Lindaya;

The three-day bridal fair from June 25 to 27 was highlighted with a bridal fashion show featuring the real brides of WEPON

Hair and makeup during the fashion show were done by Kez Sayat-Pedrosa of Belle Visage, Julius Dinurog & Co. and Benjie Borja.
The fashion show was hosted by Cyrus Alcala and serenaded by Charles Kevin Tan and his fabulous string quartet.
