May Kasal sa Forbes Park, a wedding fair presented by PHILTRADE Exhibits with the Santuario de San Antonio Parish Center and Kasal.com (online media partner), last February 15 and 16 proved to be the first big gathering of the year of individuals, companies and organizations involved in the wedding industry. For the first time in wedding fairs, a special garden wedding set-up was the focal point of the event. The set-up featured all-natural products accented with vegetables, fruits and aphrodisiacs. Chef Laudico Catering and Swiss Pinoy Kitchen impressed future brides and grooms with their striking spread.
The Design Society of the Philippines, headed by designer Jonathan Pagaduan, marked their first appearance in bridal fairs. Bergamo, the upscale and exclusive haberdasher in the country, launched its first groom collection in the fashion show.
The parishioners were in full support of the event. Among the prominent personalities who visited the fair were Honorable Teddy Boy Locsin, Congressman of Makati City; Petrona Lim, Chairman of the Parish Advisory Council; Justa Tantoco, Chairperson for the Adoration Chapel Construction Committee; Honorable Menchu Menchaca-Soriano of Barangay Forbes; Valerie Cue, president of the Latin American Womens Club and Reverend Father Tony Rosales. Together, they released live butterflies to formally open the event. Also spotted in the fair were designers Lulu Tan-Gan and Mario Katigbak.
The event was capped by a bridal gown presentation of select fashion designers modeled by a few of the country’s top mannequins, Lucia Santiago, Kuku Trinidad and Binibining Pilipinas title-holder Michelle Reyes. The event was directed by master stylist Henry Pascual.
