Let’s Talk About Filipino Wedding Superstitions and What They Mean

Is it bad luck if a guest wears black to your wedding? Will your marriage be at risk if your wedding is held in the same year as your sibling?

Glaiza De Castro Rocks a Modern Filipiniana Gown at Her Beach Wedding!

Actress and recording artist Glaiza De Castro exchanged “I do’s” with Irish businessman David Rainey a second time around at a Filipiniana wedding in Zambales. And we’re happy to share their official set of photos from Nice Print Photo!

Glaiza was a stunner in her modern terno gown! Her frock features a floral bodice that gives an illusion of a cropped top, butterfly sleeves, and a high-slit skirt. The light and breezy look of the dress makes it fitting for a beach wedding, too. What a beautiful take on the terno and Glaiza simply looks radiant in it.

The styling of the venue surely caught our eyes. The overall theme of the wedding took inspiration from the arches found in the Flores De Mayo and Santacruzan festivities. The ceremony space was also made to depict a grass field that overlooks the ocean and sunset. A glorious view indeed! Meanwhile the reception venue was adorned with lanterns as ceiling installations and a multitude of fairy lights that bathed the room in a warm and romantic glow.

If you’re envisioning a Filipiniana wedding yourself, you’ll find inspiration from David and Glaiza’s special day. Go on and see all the gorgeous details!

The Look



    Pastel Colors in This Wedding Exude Classic Elegance

    We previously featured Ino and Netty in their breathtaking engagement shoot. And finally, this couple was able to celebrate the wedding of their dreams after waiting for two years. The first thing we noticed was how the mood of their engagement shoot was consistent with their wedding day—classic and elegant. Their special day was filled with pastel colors and details that are delightful to see — from the soft hues of the entourage dresses, the lovely illustrations on the invitation suite, up to the centerpieces comprised of pink, white, and purple blooms and crystal candelabras.

    What’s even more heartwarming about this wedding was the fact that Ino and Netty’s twin daughters were able to witness this beautiful day. And they looked absolutely charming wearing cape dresses and tiaras!

    “I was definitely the happiest bride that day, because everything just went perfectly. Until now, our friends and family would tell us how it was definitely one of the best weddings they have ever been part of,” Bride Netty said.  Scroll through these photos by Team Benitez Photo.
