No one celebrates unforgettable milestones quite like the Makati Shangri-La, Manila, as evidenced by its recently-concluded two-day “Vows of Elegance” showcase

We’ve all celebrated a milestone with a loved one or attended an auspicious occasion at the Makati Shangri-La, Manila.

It has been, after all, the home of elegance and a multitude of memorable milestone celebrations for a quarter of a century. Whether or not we were there to witness the matchless flair of some of the country’s grandest of galas, exquisite nuptials and wedding anniversaries or partake of the revelry of lavish birthday parties, debuts or graduation soirees (and even the sweetest of christenings!); in some form or another, we are all somehow privy to how this landmark hotel has magically brought all the elements together through the years.

Hence, through its recent two-day “Vows of Elegance” showcase, the Makati Shangri-La—in partnership with Rita Neri Event Planners—was able to provide a slew of inspired options to those looking to plan and book their upcoming social events, whatever size or budget.

For this year’s presentation of Vows of Elegance, attendees were able to ogle and spectate at the remarkable tablescapes and curated works of the best events stylists the country has to offer. These were Joyce Aguilar, Nikki Chatto, Jo Claravall, Gideon Hermosa, Teddy Manuel, Zenas Pineda, Michael Ruiz, and Dave Sandoval.

But in the evening of the first day of the weekend showcase, the attention turned to the highlight of the affair, the Bridal Fashion Show by Debbie Co, Michael Leyva and Patricia Santos. This fashion extravaganza was held at none other than the illustrious Rizal Ballroom. Of course, rendering their own distinct stamp on the event were Robert Blancaflor, Albert Kurniawan, and Forscink Inc.
