Dreaming Of A Baguio Wedding? It’s Time To Go Local

BWESO staged the second Baguio Bridal Fair to introduce local suppliers to couples who are looking to perfect their once-in-a-lifetime moment in the Philippines’ summer capital.

Baguio isn’t just a relaxing vacation spot for travelers yearning for a quick escape—boasting of its cool weather, lush greenery, and many cultural and gastronomic experiences the city has to offer. It’s also a dream wedding destination for many, a picturesque location perfect to begin the endless memories of this new chapter in a couple’s marriage journey.

And as all lovebirds would agree, we all want only the best for our wedding. While people from Manila tend to drive up north and bring our trusted Manila wedding suppliers, it’s high time that we consider signing up with Baguio makers to make your dream wedding happen.

The Baguio Wedding and Event Suppliers Organization (BWESO) lets us in on the top suppliers in the summer capital through the second edition of the Baguio Bridal Fair, held last September at the Baguio Country Club. It gathered Baguio’s best wedding suppliers, from the planners to documentation services, catering and bands, and so much more.

Over 100 couples headed to the event—including couples from the metro!—to see what the City of Pines has to offer. From last year’s humble participants, more suppliers joined the fair to present more options for all attendees—some booths housed jewelry makers, photography teams, musicians, and even grooming services!

Driven by passion and dedication to weddings the Baguio way, each one showed off a myriad of selections that fit every kind of husband-and-wife-to-be. From use of native details and locally-sourced materials to showcasing the Baguio art, fine craftsmanship, and delicacies, setting your dream wedding here won’t leave you missing on all the important matters.

Case in point: one of their pride, Miel’s Events and Floral Design. This brainchild by Miguel Bautista, who was mentored previously by planner extraordinaire Teddy Manuel, have been steadily servicing clients with grand and top-tier arrangements that could keep up with other designers from Manila and beyond.

“Aside from our unending passion, humble lang lagi ang approach ng Baguio suppliers. Parang, let the work speak for itself,” Jomai points out. “On top of that, low-key lang talaga ang Baguio suppliers. Pero when you see their work—wow, maipagmamalaki talaga.”

Through the fair, BWESO hopes that couples will discover a talented roster from the city itself that can cater to their needs, instead of sourcing for services outside of Baguio. “It’s the home court advantage talaga that lets you in on the best ones here in Baguio,” Marbee Shing Go shares. She adds how it easily leads from one great gem to another, simply by giving them a chance to be found and cater to you. And the possible outcome—a carefully curated and marvelous Baguio wedding through recommendations from these trade secret masters.

And to further promote the colorful wedding and events scene in this northern city, big things are about to come. One is a top secret wedding destination that they promise to be the next sought-after event place when in Baguio. Another one is a collaboration with Teddy Manuel—an exciting venture that will help flourish and uplift the wedding industry here.

By next year’s Baguio Bridal Fair, we can predict more pairs tying the knot with the help of our local talents—and everyone will be more than happy and impressed.
