HERE COMES THE BRIDE

A long stand­ing wed­ding tra­di­tion that sim­ply re­fuses to fade away

Cebu Living - - Social Diaries -

Pre­ced­ing the most an­tic­i­pated wed­ding of the year is a bridal shower that had sparked as much amuse­ment as the couple’s say­ing “I Do’s.” Alessan­dra Gavrielle Bor­romeo— known to many as Alessa— dons a white satin slip with match­ing robe, set­ting the scene for her slum­ber party- themed bridal shower.

Daugh­ter of Ger­ardo “Dindo” Bor­romeo and Lisette Aberas­turi Gar­cia, and now the wife of Fran­cis Michael Alvez VI, the bride chose a theme suited for a bond­ing ex­pe­ri­ence with her clos­est lady friends and rel­a­tives. Abid­ing by the dress code, most of the guests came in their fa­vorite loungewear and pa­ja­mas. The en­er­getic Lisette Gar­cia— along­side

ti­tas y madri­nas Marisse Ser­afica, Petite Gar­cia, Jean­nette Zosa, Tess Cuenco, and cousins Kirsten and In­ger Cuenco, Delice, Ber­dynne, Brigette, Lal­lie Gar­cia and Kyni Ho— hosted her daugh­ter’s bridal shower.

With the help of event or­ga­nizer Stanz Cata­lan, the Granada Salon of the Casino Es­pañol de Cebu was trans­formed into an in­ti­mate venue for a bride’s dream party: with beige and taupe as the dom­i­nant mo­tif, Deb­bie Huang’s white roses adding their del­i­cate touches to the space, and a queen- sized bed serv­ing as a de­pos­i­tory of the vis­i­tor’s gifts.
