Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu Hosts “Of Veils and Trails” Wedding Fair

Marquee-Wedding-Set-up

This month, Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu reshapes love stories from special to extraordinary with Of Veils and Trails, an elegant wedding fair designed to enrich all tales of romance on Saturday, 29 March 2014.

Affairs of the heart have always been quite alluring: from first impressions and shy dates to that dreamy glide down the aisle and those pivotal “I Do’s.”

Shangri-La’s Mactan Resort & Spa, Cebu’s Of Veils and Trails begins 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.  Enticing culinary exhibits come into play at each stop as couples sample tasty nibbles selected from the resort’s wedding menus.  A visit to the deluxe Bridal Suite with its panoramic view of the Mactan Channel’s cerulean waters will also be featured.

A 60-minute confab at The Marquee follows the savory affair.  Executed in speed-dating style, the interactive dialogue aims to acquaint couples with Cebu’s top wedding specialists.  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 follow thereafter.

Floodlights will illuminate The Marquee at dusk as sophistication takes center stage in the unveiling of exquisite bridal couture by Cebu’s fashion artisans.  The graceful sashay down the catwalk will highlight exclusive creations by Jun Escario, Mary Ty, Albert Arriba, Edwin Ao, Myrna Cebrecus, Protacio Empaces, Arcy Gayatin, Oj Hoffer, William Manahan, Yvonne Quisumbing, Philip Tampus, Marichu Tan and Philip Rodriguez.

Created to inspire the engaged and designed for beautiful beginnings, participation in the Of Veils and Trailswedding fair is complimentary for both in-house and walk-in guests.  Courtesy shuttle service from the city is also available to and from the resort at predetermined schedules.

To fully enjoy exclusive privileges offered on-site, couples are required to pre-register by sending their names, email addresses, mobile numbers and planned wedding date to events.mac@shangri-la.com.

Special savings on regular wedding reception packages await couples who confirm their wedding plans with the resort on 29 March 2014.  An additional treat also awaits couples who choose to stay at the resort on the day of the wedding fair.  A choice rate of P7,500 net per room per day will be offered for stays from 28 to 30 March 2014 only.
