The Philippines' First All-Opinion Website

July 7, 2018


As June comes to a close the bridal season for the second half of the year goes into full swing. One of the things I like about this time of the year is getting to see the latest designs of our top designers at different bridal fashion shows. A few weeks ago, I went to Weddings at The Peninsula where they featured Mak Tumang, Mark Bumgarner, Michael Leyva, Joey Samson and Jojie Lloren.

Unlike other hotels where they confine the wedding exhibition to the grand ballroom, The Peninsula Manila made use of the entire lobby, which really is, at least for me, the most beautiful area of the hotel. The neoclassical spiral staircase, those mirrored columns and the sunburst sculpture of National Artist Napoleon Abueva on the ceiling made for the best backdrop to showcase the pieces from each of the designer’s collections.

Mak Tumang‘s collection was floral and feminine.

Mark Bumgarner‘s collection was sexy and glam.

Michael Leyva‘s collection featured stunning bead work.

Joey Samson‘s collection was all about versatility and wearability.

Jojie Lloren‘s collection kept to the traditional Filipiniana aesthetic.

But the dress that blew me away that night was the edible wedding dress (yup, you read that right, edible wedding dress), which they displayed in the middle of the lobby.

Even after getting a closer look of the dress I still couldn’t believe that it was edible. The way the texture of lace was replicated was amazing.
Weddings at The Peninsula gave people a glimpse of what dream weddings are made of. It truly is one of the most beautiful hotels in the country. It’s no wonder that it remains one of the most coveted wedding venues today.
