A WEDDING is a celebration of love and a moment of pure joy.
It is always a girl’s dream to have a grandiose wedding punctuated with the picture-perfect and fairytale-like vision of the wedding venue.
The recent Kasalang Filipino 2017, the biggest annual wedding expo in the country, was held last July 14 to 16 at Abreeza Mall activity area.

During the event, couples were taught how to plan for a blissful wedding. Here are some of the essential elements that you may need to consider:
Because of the busy schedules of the soon-to-be-husband-and-wife, either because of work or merely to avoid getting stressed out of the wedding details, couples hire organizers and professionals to ease the pressure and focus on the small details instead.
This will surely be an advantage trusting the planners to process every element of the couple’s big day. But the soon-to-be-wed couple must also be hands on to ensure that their plans will run accordingly.
Wedding day will only run for several hours and every couple should make sure that they will hire excellent photographers and videographers who will capture their very special moments.
One of the important details of the wedding is choosing the hotel or venue to hold the reception and the city is definitely a home of large selection of affordable yet splendid space to gather your families and friends for the reception.
Part of the rituals of the reception is the slicing of the cake and is one of the highlights. The design would reflect the specific style and unique values of the couple.
Every bride-to-be want to be the most beautiful girl on the day she will exchange vows and say "I Do" with her partner. She should be the center of everyone and all eyes will be on her she walks down the aisle. Thus, the bride should choose designers who will tailor her kind of style.
