I am getting married 2 years from now but I am doing a obviously advanced planning because I am based in New York and I want to get married in the Philippines. My fiance is from Manila and I am from Iloilo City. It has been a big dilemma to where the wedding is gonna be, and I am a big fan of Manila events and venues only because I couldn't find (or at least I haven't tried so much) a good venue, catering, and wedding resources that is based in Iloilo. It will be all too crazy to fly everything to Iloilo, cake, flowers, and yes I have been to different weddings there and havent been really amazed so far of what Iloilo can offer. On the other hand I can do it in Manila but will not be so happy because I dont think everyone in my family based in Iloilo can make it to the date (it's a weekday!).
So to cut the story short, I am looking for a wedding coordinator or wedding resource person who can present to me the best options Iloilo City can offer. If you are a wedding planner or coordinator from Manila but who knows places in Iloilo, catering, cakes, I'm willing to fly you and pay for accommodations as well to go to Iloilo. If the options are good then my wedding will be in Iloilo I guess.
In case you are wondering these are my dilemmas for the Iloilo Wedding which I couldn't find any good resources
Venue----im not too keen on the hotels,I'd like to spend big on food but I dont think they can offer my money's worth
Cake- a nice 4 tier like the ones in cake boss
Flowers- to match my wedding motif (deep dark blue almost black and its complementary colors)
And everything else that I couldn;t find in Iloilo!
