Over 60 event suppliers from all over Bacolod with guest luxe resorts from Roxas, Iloilo, Boracay and Bohol gathered last weekend in the activity center of Ayala Malls Capitol Central, Bacolod City for the biggest comeback of the local wedding and events industry in Negros.
Ms. Mathel Ong, editor-in-chief of Kasal.com, shared that when they decided to bring back Kasalan at Kotilyon this year in various areas nationwide, “it is heartwarming to know that event suppliers and local to-be weds, alike were excited for the comeback and both showed great support for our national expo.”Kasal.com started the Kasalan at Kotilyon national wedding & tourism roadshow way back in 2003. This year marked the program’s 16th run nationwide and its 7th year in Bacolod.
The 2-day wedding expo in Bacolod started off with romantic wedding serenades from the City’s promising and known musicians.
