Guests at the Bride and Breakfast Garden Soiree

Here are some of the photos of the wonderful people who came and supported us. The event wouldn’t have been a success if it weren’t for them! It’s nice to see the wedding suppliers chilling, relaxing, and just bonding with each other. I hope everyone had a great time because I can’t wait for next year!!!

Make sure you see the crazy SLOWMOO video below!

    Bride and Breakfast Garden Soirée 2013

    It’s been a couple of months since we celebrated our first-ever Bride and Breakfast Garden Soirée. Many of you might be wondering what exactly it is. The garden soirée is a party we threw for wedding suppliers in the Philippines, sort of like a thank you and a meet-and-greet. For the last three and a half years, we’ve been blogging about many of these suppliers, some of whom we have never met, so the affair was the perfect time to do so. But because Bride and Breakfast is a sucker for style and details, we made sure that we came up with something enjoyable as well as pleasingly memorable.

    Of course this would not be possible if it weren’t for the talented suppliers who made the Tropical Luxe theme come to life.

    Before the event, we wrote about the gorgeous invites that we sent out. Collaborating with the most creative paper and design geniuses in the Philippines, this invite certainly set the mood. We cannot thank Printsonalities, The Fozzy Book, and Arlene Sy enough, because they set a pretty high bar for the newest wedding invitation trend–3D, personalized, artistic, and high-quality. Thanks to these awesome people, this invite received overwhelming compliments from our guests.

    So for couples who want to give your guests a whole new experience, we totally recommend a 3D invite for your wedding.

    Quaint Cuteness

    If there’s something we can’t say no to, it’s a playfully quaint celebration. Richmond and Yeye’s wedding that Toto Villaruel sent our way is just that. With a few modern twists and a whole lot of pretty, this affair will surely tickle your love bones. It’s not everyday that we get to feature a bride with really short hair (I love it!) and a gown with gold geometric embellishments. Add that to the usually gorgeous Vatel Manila bouquets and the cutest buttounieres by {etc} Handmade Goodness and you’ve got yourself the perfect day.

    The Cozy Countryside

    When I dream of a nice getaway, it would probably look like this. Think serenity, think cozy… think utterly romantic. Graham and Ginger’s engagement shoot can make anyone dream of quiet afternoon walks and a cup of really good coffee. Enjoy these gorgeous photos by Pat Dy. Let’s just say it put us in a pretty lovely mood!

    The Sweetest Sophistication

    Pinch me please, because I think I’m still dreaming. This super gorgeous wedding from MangoRed is what great Mondays are all about. Ryan and Amanda’s beautiful bash is filled with sweet sophistication and delicate daintiness. To be honest, among all the prettiness you are about to see, we sort of admit that the bride’s gown the thing we took a good long look at. And today, we only have to look not once, nor twice, but three (yes, THREE!) times at the breathtaking gowns by Monique Lhuillier, Reem Acra, and Vera Wang–Amanda looked equally stunning in all of them.

    Oh, and I’m pretty sure you’ve heard, right? Blush is the new black. Gotta love, love, love those dresses! Soft and surreal, we’ve decided that we’re welcoming this Monday with arms wide open!
