Wedding reception venues are not that scarce, but it’s the choosing that can be a little hard. For one, they get booked fast. And just when you thought you found your dream venue for your dream wedding party, some other couple has beat you to it.
Your chosen venue will also set the tone of your wedding. You want it to have that unique flair to make your wedding celebration solemn yet fun, and elegant yet affordable. It must also be accessible to most of your guests, hold the number of people you want to invite, and have the necessary facilities to execute your vision.
But don’t let these challenges ruin your big day. Here’s a list of wedding reception venues around the metro that tick off all the things on your checklist.
1. Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar Quezon City
134 Roosevelt Avenue, San Francisco del Monte, Quezon City
If you’re on the hunt for an events place that’s rustic, charming, and full of personality, then Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar in Quezon City has got you covered. The space is a unique sight to behold from inside out, featuring a fusion of Baroque, Art Deco, Art Nouveau, and Neoclassical art styles. The premier F&B group of Cibo di M provides exclusive in-house catering services for wedding events.
2. La Castellana
670 Beaterio Street, Intramuros, Manila
Madrid, Spain has a very long, wide, and busy avenue called Paseo de Castellana, and La Castellana in Manila’s so-called Walled City falls nothing short in giving that Spanish-inspired atmosphere. The venue has all that opulent feel to it, from immaculately polished floors to a castle-like structure, elegant crystal chandeliers, a grand ballroom, a cloverleaf fountain by the courtyard, a mini garden, and more.
Located in the heart of Intramuros, La Castellana makes for a perfect wedding reception venue if you’re saying your wedding vows in either San Agustin Church or the Manila Cathedral.
Garden or Al Fresco
3. The Glass Garden
257 Evangelista Avenue, Barangay Santolan, Pasig City
The Glass Garden looks exactly what it calls itself—a garden with glass walls and high ceilings, making it the perfect venue for that romantic feel you want for your wedding reception. The place has a unique and sophisticated vibe to it thanks to an English-inspired architecture, although it also has some contemporary touch for the more modern in you. There are two events halls, with a seating capacity of 100 to 700 attendees.
4. Narra Hill
A special place for your special day—that’s what Narra Hill in Tagaytay has to offer. This wedding venue hosts your reception party in a beautiful pavilion amid lush gardens, a man-made waterfall, a lagoon, and a breathtaking view of the Taal Lake. With ample space for cocktails, the garden area can also hold your wedding ceremony. Renting the venue gives you exclusive use of all facilities, and you’re free to bring in your caterer and other suppliers without any corkage fees.
Santa Rosa – Tagaytay Road, Silang, Cavite
Angelfields’s nature sanctuary is a 10-hectare estate that houses three event venues: Aqua and Vino Venue, Magnificat Venue, and Sanctuary Garden Venue. Among the three, the biggest space is the Magnificat Venue, which can accommodate up to 400 guests in its grand hall that gives you a stunning view of Tagaytay’s hills and mountains.
Meanwhile, the Sanctuary Garden’s open space allows you to be one with nature as you get surrounded by bamboos, trees, and several bird species—just like what a sanctuary should be. All of the venues offer full wedding packages with several inclusions, such as free-flowing beverages and brewed coffee, cocktail tables, parking space for all guests, and more.
