Novotel Manila hosts bridal gala to raise funds for Bantay Bata 163

MANILA, Philippines — Through the years, Novotel Manila Araneta Center has witnessed memories unfold from hosting wedding receptions. The radiance of a couple’s lifetime commitment of love, their stories of journeys to forever, are all etched in the heart of the hotel. 

Inspired by this, Novotel Manila Araneta Center, in partnership with JMG Infinity events, proudly presents "Curated Memories: A Wedding Story." This two-day bridal fair brings together Metro Manila’s top and trusted wedding suppliers and designers at the Versailles Event Tent on April 27 and 28. 

The first day will include learning sessions in wedding planning, including hair and makeup demonstrations, venue styling, and choosing photo and video coverage, among others. The following day is reserved for two elegant fashion shows to highlight the bridal gala. 

Fashion for a cause 

On April 28, a Sunday afternoon matinee will feature the innovative creations of over 31 of the country’s top young fashion designers from the Designers Circle Philippines.

The day culminates with a grand gala and a fashion show featuring iconic designer, Renee Salud. He will present a timeless signature wedding collection inspired by Filipiniana weaves and fabrics, which will be modeled by members of the metro’s high society.

“With the unveiling of the new designs, it felt apt to also showcase the brilliant minds of young designers here in the Philippines, along with the much-esteemed Mama Renee Salud who is generous enough to partner with Metro Manila’s socialites, and extend the proceeds of his creations for Bantay Bata,” said General Manager Mike Brown.

The charity gala is a grand ball of Filipino haute couture, elegance and style celebrating the natural beauty of the Filipina. Proceeds from the event will benefit ABS-CBN’s Bantay Bata 163. 

Novotel Manila Araneta Center will also unveil new designs for its wedding packages called "Weddings at Novotel: Seasons of Love."
