Makati Shangri-la has always had a special place in my heart.
Nino and I had our beginning in the Hotel Lobby almost 20 years ago.
Today, Makati Shangri-la is one of our favorite hotels to go to with the family, for a plethora of reasons.
I visit the lobby in between meetings in while I’m in Makati.
We celebrate with large and small gatherings with friends and family in the different restaurants all located within the hotel.
Nino and I enjoy date nights building on the relationship that started so long ago, by having a nightcap, or even a staycation away from the kids for a night or two.
When people think of Makati Shangri-la they think cosmopolitan, luxury, five star elegance, and romantic celebrations.
I know I do.
We all know that celebrating the most important of moments our lives with a hotel that has been marking milestones for families for decades, can quell any fears or worries of a bride in anticipation of the day that she celebrates her love with her groom.
“A wedding is a great time to cherish unforgettable moments with loved ones and friends. Makati Shangri-La, Manila believes that guests are part of its family, too. Its signature service helps guests prepare for that special day with an attention to detail that only comes from the heart.”
This coming April 9th and 10th, Makati Shangri-la will showcase some of the country’s top wedding service providers that make nuptials more memorable through VOWS OF ELEGANCE, A Grand Wedding Fair.
Vows of Elegance is presented in partnership with Rita Neri Events Planners. Rita Neri the country’s most sought-after wedding organizer and regarded as the fairy godmother of Philippine weddings.
To be honest, just attending the press event with some of my friends, made me want to consider renewing my vows.
Ah to be young, and planning a wedding again!!! How much easier it is to plan for the hopes and wishes of a young couple with a little help from highly experienced people who know their craft!

Even during the press event, I found myself day dreaming what it would be like to wear a wedding gown again…Having designers on hand to discuss the collections that they will be showcasing during the fashion show during the event proper, made it all the more dreamy.
