Every year, for the last 5 years, the Manila Marriott team has managed to create a unique and lavish experience at Marry Me At Marriott, the hotel’s annual bridal show. This event is unlike other bridal shows because they give you a holistic experience, creating an atmosphere that will show you the endless possibilities one can do with the space. This year’s event took up half of the grand ballroom and included a driveway-cum-runway, a wedding cake coming down from the ceiling and aerial dancers.

Of course, the main attraction is the fashion show featuring bridal wear from select local designers. The show has earned the reputation of being the most coveted bridal show in the country. The featured designers this year were Avel Bacudio, Happy Andrada, Hannah Kong, and Michael Leyva.
Michael Leyva’s designs took inspiration from the intricate designs of the grand ballroom and his muse was none other than the ever charming Anne Curtis. Her finale gown was a bold red color and had a long, layered train at the back. I am still amazed at how she was able to walk down that runway without tripping!
Happy Andrada’s collection was a slew of beige colored dresses. Her play on a different color was to cater to the modern bride. For me, though, you can go as modern as you want with the design but nothing beats traditional white.
Hannah Kong’s collection stayed true to her design aesthetic of being very feminine with embroidery and beadwork.
Avel Bacudio’s collection stayed true to his vision of creating pieces that are very wearable. His collection seemed the most comfortable and most fun to wear out of all the collections.
Marry Me At Marriott is not just a showcase of the magnificence of the grand ballroom and the wonderful talent of our local designers. It is also a showcase of the Marriott Hotel culture of delighting its guests. Kudos to the Manila Marriott team! Till next year!
