Weddings… It’s more fun in the Philippines

We’re probably one of the many people who truly take the campaign, Weddings… It’s more fun in the Philippines, with great honor. Being a blog that celebrates Philippine weddings, well… let’s just say I’ve been wowed many times over, to the moon and back. When we heard that one of our posts was actually mentioned in the official Facebook page of the Department of Tourism’s It’s more fun in the Philippines campaign, we practically did cartwheels! Yeah, it’s no Nobel prize award, but it’s certainly a great privilege for us to be a part of something that gives back to our nation. We’ve always been so proud of the Philippines, its people, and the talent that the country has.

And just like us, our friends in the industry prove that they too take much pride in the beauty of weddings celebrated in this country. The talented Bob Nicolas brilliantly crafted this must-watch video in support of the campaign. Certainly a great way to jumpstart our morning. Mabuhay!

Fashion Friday: Jesus Peiro

It practically makes my day whenever we discover a new designer here at B&B. Yup, this is the first time Jesus Peiro designs will grace our Fashion Fridays. Honestly, it took me quite a while to choose what styles to actually feature since ALL of them are gorgeous. Loving how the little elements like the ribbons, applique and embroidery are manipulated in such a unique way, almost structural (but feminine) in nature. Another thing I am particularly swooning over are the necklines–definitely a breath of fresh air from the typical strapless tops. Anyway, you just have to see for yourself! Clean lines, romantic silhouettes and soft details make these beauties drool-worthy.

Where Tasteful Meets True Love

Dear reader,

We welcome you to the new Bride and Breakfast. Because of the heartwarming support from all of you, B&B continues to reinvent itself to better serve our followers. Having a new look for the website is just another step towards our desire to always inspire. Along with our launch of the site, you can expect more beautiful weddings, lots of giveaways, tasteful inspirations, practical articles and thoughts from the editor (me) at The Nook. I will be talking more about the new website in the coming days, but right now I just wanna say I am so beyond excited, and I hope you are too!

This is where tasteful meets true love. Let the beauty begin!

 

Hugs and Love,

Destinies and Dreams

Everyone wants to remember their wedding day. It’s magical, surreal and everything beautiful. Arwind and Ivette will definitely have something to smile about years from now, cause their wedding was so dreamy and overflowing with details. The couple, opting for a mix of modern and fun inspirations for their reception, while still going for a classic look for their attire, chose Metrophoto to shoot them in such breathtaking backdrops. What a wonderful wedding!

Lovely weekend everyone!
