CEL­E­BRAT­ING CITYSCAPES

Wedding Essentials - - FROM WE TO YOU -

I grew up as a city girl, and in my heart, I will al­ways be one. Prob­a­bly, most of the mod­ern brides did as well, I and this is­sue is a tribute to that. Vol­ume 14 Is­sue 3 is all about luxe city wed­dings. Some­thing I hope you can take in­spi­ra­tion from.

Here, we cel­e­brate the beauty and lux­ury of the metro. Most of­ten, we have to go out­side Manila just to get a feel of the out­doors. To get all the op­u­lence and grandeur and bask in the sprawl­ing open spa­ces. But when you think about all the con­cerns and re­straints—bud­get, lo­gis­tics, sched­ules and the like—it might not be as vi­able an idea to cel­e­brate out of town. Still, that shouldn’t stop you from hold­ing a wed­ding you can be proud of.

In our Dream Themes sec­tion, we col­lab­o­rate with three tal­ented event stylists to trans­form three city venues: Casa De Juico, Dis­cov­ery Suites, and Grand Hy­att Manila, into grand re­cep­tion spa­ces. We also bring back one of the sec­tions that has al­ways been close to my heart— Groom Makeover—where we give three groom­sto-be a day of pam­per­ing and wed­ding tips from the WE ed­i­tors.

I am also ex­cited to present our col­lab­o­ra­tion with one of the finest des­ti­na­tions I know in the south. It’s been nearly a decade since I first vis­ited Tagaytay High­lands for a shoot, mount­ing the lemon setup with Tita Beth Amat of Eve and Co. It was an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, set upon the sprawl­ing greens. A pic­ture per­fect col­lab­o­ra­tion whose mem­ory re­mains with me to­day.

Through the years, Tagaytay High­lands has been fo­cused on pro­mot­ing lux­ury wed­dings, giv­ing its mem­bers and guests ex­quis­ite ser­vice. From food, lodg­ing, and of course, events, they have al­ways de­liv­ered. Hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced this kind of lux­ury first­hand, I can cer­tainly rec­om­mend that you try it out your­self, and WE is proud to be one of their part­ners in cel­e­brat­ing their 25th year.

And with this, I’d per­son­ally like to thank you for con­tin­u­ously lov­ing WE and wed­dings. It has al­ways been a priv­i­lege to be part of your cel­e­bra­tion. From all of us at WE, happy plan­ning!
