Bayview Park Hotel Manila and Blessed Concepts Production, together with Kasal.com (the online media partner), presented a unique three-day bridal fair entitled, Affairs at the Bay, last November 21-23 at Bayview Park Hotel Manila.

Couples-to-be flocked to the Manila Bay Ballroom on the first night to witness a spectacular mock wedding reception, complete with all the trimmings. A whole entourage was present with a truly beautiful bride and dashing groom. The female sponsors sparkled in their orange butterfly-inspired gowns, all by in-house designer Joel Villaluna.

Enchanting music was provided by the Stradivarius String Ensemble and the Musicapella of Santuario de San Jose Greenhills. The sumptuous international buffet was served by the staff who even threw in a little performance, marching and dancing to popular ditties. The reception was ably hosted by Dr. Jay Ambalada and Bayview Park Hotel Manila sales director Marie Jean dela Cruz.

The second day featured helpful seminars on planning for the wedding. The fair culminated in a grand fashion show featuring exquisite designs by Millet Guinto of Design Avenue, Boying Eustaquio, Joel Pros, Renee Salud, Joel Villaluna, Ysabelle and Edward Teng in exciting hues such as blue and pink for the bride, groom and the rest of the wedding entourage.

The event was also sponsored by Avon Color, AA Productions, Automated Lights, Hairwatch Salon, Image Box Photography, Microdata, Nextel, Pearl Petals Plus Parties, QP Designs, Wedding Library and Kasal.com.
