Reception Venue #3

My third choice of reception venue is really just a back-up if both my first two choices fail. The Pergola is a new events venue in Manila. If I am not mistaken, they just opened sometime last year. Since it is pretty new, I cannot find a lot of wedding event photos here. What I like about this place is that it is indoor so it is airconditioned plus it is fairly new so the facilities are still new. The venue has accredited caterers but as far as the information we got last month, they don't charge corkage fees. I guess it's because they are new in the business and would love to attract new customers. This venue is located by Roxas boulevard close to Mall of Asia which is fairly close to our preferred church.

If everything else fails, this is my backup plan.

Reception Venue #2

My second choice for reception venue is in Quezon City. It is a bit farther from the church but at least it is an airconditioned venue. The chandelier and skylight at Light of Love Events Place Atrium made me drool. Look at the photos here. I think the only catch in that place is that my preferred caterer is not accredited in the place so I have to pay a corkage fee which is not good since I'd rather spend that corkage money for more food for the guests or maybe put more budget on my wedding gown. Anyway, we'll see how it goes when we actually look at the place. Who knows... the chandelier might convince me.
