Overseas wedding planning can be a hassle, especially if both couple is based abroad. During wedding preps, many would resort to ask help from relatives who are based in Manila (or wherever they are living) to go to bridal fairs, check out wedding vendors and even book suppliers on behalf of the couple, but would always end up with problems. Canvassing wedding vendors is a big thing and back in the day, listing the who’s who in the industry takes much time and effort to know. But thankfully due to recent technology, online wedding resources have emerged. These online resources give detailed information regarding supplier’s potfolios, their history in the industry, contact information and unbiased opinions from former brides as well that is pretty much helpful when planning. Sometimes they also offer contests and promos from partner suppliers for couples which is just plain awesome. There’s also this group page on FB that gives reasonable advice for couples for their wedding preps straight out of her experience as a former bride and a known wedding host, which is something great to read for reminders every now and then. And of course, we, as an overseas couple hugely benefit from their help!
Below is a list of online wedding resources based in Manila that we heavily rely on. Note that they also have their own Facebook pages. You may check them out for yourselves. Happy preps!
