Kasalang Dabawenyo: A Celebration of Davao’s Flourishing Wedding Industry


A month after Davao City’s infamous Kadayawan festival, Dabawenyos welcomed another festivity. The Kasalang Filipino 2007 wedding fair and exhibit last Sept. 14-16 celebrated Davao’s local wedding industry and customs.

As Kadayawan festival celebrates life, the gifts of nature and the bounties of harvest, Kasalang Filipino sa Davao, on the other hand, celebrates the joys and traditions of Dabawenyo wedding celebrations.

During the 3-day wedding event, the activity center of NCCC Mall Davao, the program host and partner, was turned into a wedding wonderland. Various wedding suppliers, from Davao City’s finest to the promising ones, joined and showcased their wedding products and services.

Some of Davao’s established and known wedding businesses who have supported the wedding fair include event stylist and party planner Annie Lim; Merco Quality Cakes, who has been in the business since 1946 and has 35 branches all over Davao; and Lito Sy who is one of the most sought-after wedding photographers in the country.

NCCC Mall, with 3 department stores in Davao, introduced its bridal collections as well as promoted its wedding registry service. Its sister company, NCCC Foods, launched its wedding cakes and catering services and had the event goers sample what they have to offer. 

Kasalang Dabawenyo was culminated with a special wedding fashion show led by Davao’s Wedding Channel, NCCC Department Store, and some of Davao’s noted fashion designers.
