Launching Tarlac as Destination Wedding of Choice
I cannot quite imagine why Tarlaqueños,
even people from neighboring towns, would not want to get
married in Tarlac. If you have witnessed the wedding setups
and displays in Kasalang Tarlaqueño wedding fair last
June 22-23, you will agree with me.

for Coco Gardens.
Let's start with the wedding venue.
The Aquino Center, where the wedding fair was held,
offers a very elegant venue option especially for
grand wedding celebrations - high ceiling, state-of-the-art
lighting and ventilation, marbled floors and glass
halls. A short, romantic walk at the back of the Center
will lead you to Microtel Inn & Suites, Luisita, where
you, your family, and wedding guests from out-of-town
can check in.
If you prefer a garden-resort wedding
setting, then Coco Gardens of Coconut Grill Resort,
one of the fair's exhibitors, is the perfect venue
Its lush foliage
and lagoon offers a natural tropical backdrop to your wedding
occasion. It also has a back up tent and function rooms that
you can use in case of rain.
During the fair, a photo
exhibit of popular Tarlac Churches were also displayed. Among
them is the Church of the Risen Christ in Brgy. Lubigan, San
Jose, Tarlac which houses the authentic, sacred relic of the
True Cross upon which Jesus Christ was crucified and died.
If we talk about food and catering,
Tarlac is the melting pot of the culinary skills of
Ilocanos, Pampangos, Tagalogs and Pangasinenses. And
during the 2-day fair, local restaurants and caterers,
gave event guests a sampling of their wedding menu.
Florists, event stylists, and fashion designer participants,
on the other hand, displayed their unique interpretation
of different wedding motifs. The special fashion show
on the second day showcased different wedding themes
- Victorian, Filipiniana, Oriental, and Mediterranean.
There is also no cause for worry
on where to source for other wedding needs. Kasalang
Tarlaqueño boasts of almost 50 different wedding suppliers,
showcasing the diversity of the province's wedding
supplies and services.
"Kasalang Tarlaqueño is our
way of promoting to all to-be weds that Tarlac can
be your worry-free, hassle-free destination wedding
of choice," shared Mr. Jun Baron of Tarlac Convention
& Visitors Bureau (TCVB), the event's organizer.

To top it all, TCVB also
launched during the event the different tour packages that
offer a variety of activities for honeymooners. Couples can
opt to have a spiritual journey to the Monastery of the True
Cross in San Jose, Tarlac or go on a nature's trek to Mt.
Pinatubo via Capas, Tarlac route.
So whether you are from
Tarlac or from another town (or even from another country),
it is not difficult to imagine getting married in Tarlac.
As Central Luzon Tourism Council chairperson Mrs. Lydia Co
said, "Tarlac has many things to offer. And we commit to nurturing
our local wedding industry and tourism so couples need not
look somewhere else for their wedding needs."
