Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu brings back Of Veils and Trails, an elegant wedding fair designed to enrich all tales of romance, on Saturday, May 9, 2015 at 11 a.m.
Following its successful debut last year, this year’s Of Veils and Trails will begin with personally guided tours around the resort’s most sought-after wedding venues: the Swarovski-detailed Mactan Ballroom, the ivory-draped The Marquee, the glass-enclosed Ocean Pavilion, the scenic Ocean Terraces and the pristine beachfront.
From rustic or extravagant, traditional or chic to flirty or dainty, Cebu’s top wedding stylists will lend their stylish and elegant touch to turn these venues into picture-perfect wedding settings. A visit to the deluxe Bridal Suite with its panoramic view of the Mactan Channel’s calming blue waters will also be part of the guided tour.
Meanwhile, The Marquee will serve as a staging area for the city’s top wedding professionals. Doors to The Marquee will open as early as 11 a.m. to give guests more hours to freely consult with the city’s finest florists, hair and make-up stylists, pastry artists, decor providers, printers, photographers, videographers and lights and sound experts. To capture the romantic spirit of the day, Cebu’s chosen wedding entertainers will take the stage for a mini performance at 5 p.m.
The event’s highlight will be the enticing culinary showcase to be staged by the resort’s experienced team of international chefs led by Executive Chef Frank Bohdan. Tasty nibbles – from dressed-up comfort food, lively, flavorful appetizers and light-hearted alternatives to classic main entrées – will be on full display for the enjoyment of all guests. With much thought placed on each dish and its presentation, this culinary experience has been designed to tempt taste buds through flavor, texture and presentation.
“We appreciate that weddings continue to merge the couple’s personal style with traditional touches, and wedding menus are no exception. Our food showcase will demonstrate our culinary team’s creativity, ensuring that our reception menus are as unique as every other element of the wedding,” said Executive Chef Frank Bohdan.
To inspire engaged couples onto their beautiful beginning, participation in the Of Veils and Trails wedding fair is complimentary for both in-house and walk-in guests. Special savings on regular wedding reception packages await couples who confirm their wedding plans with the resort during the wedding fair.
To fully enjoy the exclusive privileges offered on-site, couples are required to pre-register by sending their names, email addresses, mobile numbers and planned wedding date to firstname.lastname@example.org.
