Ideal Destination Weddings in the Philippines

One of the most difficult things an engaged couple will ever have to do is to choose the location of their nuptials. There are numerous factors affecting this decision, such as time, proximity and availability of the location. One idea the happy pair might want to consider is a destination wedding in the Philippines. Sometimes, the perfect place is just in the back of your mind; for example, many brides have always dreamed of having their elaborate Weddings in Tagaytay, so why not consider the thought? Or maybe you want something a little more rustic, like Intramuros. Or perhaps a beach wedding is more your type? These three spots are lovely as they are, but if you hold your wedding there, they will surely hold a special place in your heart forever.


Tagaytay City

      Located a mere two hours away from the busy metro, the lovely city of Tagaytay is a top favorite wedding destination of brides both from the city and from surrounding provinces.

The lush greenery surrounding you will be enough to make you feel as if you have been transported to some foreign land, only to realize as you look out into the horizon and onto the tiny Taal Volcano you are on native soil. If you have no idea where to go in Tagaytay, why not Tagaytay Highlands? This beautiful, exclusive Golf and Country club is proof with prestige comes benefits as it is considered to be among Buzzfeeds's "17 Stunning Venues In The Philippines".

      If you and your groom are really aching to truly get away from the island of Luzon, perhaps a little trip west will do the trick. Palawan is a two time honoree of the title "Best Island in the World" by world renowned US travel magazine Conde Nast Traveler. It beats coastal Santorini in Greece and down under Great Barrier Reef & Whitsunday Islands, Australia. Due to its location, the island has been kept in a pristine condition, with its clear blue waters, thick forests, towering cliffs and deep caves. Any nature lover will think of it as the perfect location for their wedding as it is simply an honor to be surrounded by Mother’s Nature beauty. If you plan to elope, it’s one great site to escape and say the vows of your eternal pairing.

This is a once in a lifetime event, so go ahead and do everything to make it special. If it’s an elopement you want, go ahead. It’s not about your guests; it is about the two of you.
