“Romance is the glamor which turns the dust of everyday life into a golden haze.” Elinor Glyn

Marriott Hotel Manila, led by Marriott International cluster general manager Bruce Winton, together with Marriott cluster director of marketing communications Michelle Garcia and cluster director of marketing Cristina Carreon, recently held the much awaited Marry Me at Marriott, the metro’s most elegant bridal show. The event was attended by many of the country’s top wedding suppliers, with 700 guests enjoying some of the dreamiest possibilities for a wedding.

Complementing Marriott’s majestic event space was the hotel’s incredible catering service, which is notable for its elaborate banquets. The four-course wine dinner, specially designed by the hotel’s executive chef Meik Brammer, highlighted not just wonderful flavors but also the hotel’s culinary advocacies like sustainable seafood, organic produce and supporting local cuisine.

The Grand Ballroom was spruced with opulent chandeliers and stunning décor as guests enjoyed the bridal show that featured the most romantic wedding dresses.

 Congratulations to Marriott Hotel Manila for a successful bridal show! *
