Kasalang Filipino, the national bridal fair road show, had a successful run in Cebu on the second leg of its tour last August 1 to 3. Venue of the show was Ayala Center Cebu.
Tagged as “the first ever national bridal fair road show featuring the best of Philippine wedding essentials and services,” Kasalang Filipino drew support from wedding coordinators, fashion designers, florists, cake bakers, goldsmiths and the like
The three day event at Ayala saw the unfolding of two major fashion shows by Cebu’s more visible/involved designers like Jed Sevilla, Albert Arriba, Protacio, Harley Ruedas, Jude Elardo, among others. A mock wedding was also performed to set mood and tone on the first day.
Sidelight of shows was the reportedly controversial parade of five wedding gowns by couturier Jed Sevilla; as opposed to one gown each by the other designers. Allegedly, only one gown was permitted per designer. Sevilla; however, was swamped by floral bouquets by friends and clients at the curtain call.

Kasalang Filipino was the second biggestbridal fair to hit the metropolis in the last 2 months since the“Marry Month” of June. The Kasalang Filipino road show, in fact, ends inNovember yet (after having had the run of 10 key Philippine cities), at the San Diego Gardens of Intramuros, Manila.
With Kasalang Filipino, one realizes that weddings have become Big Business, and that several — albeit small – industries, have been spinned-off them in the last few years.
