Walking down the aisle with the man you truly love is surely a moment bride will remember for the rest of her life and will certainly be one of the fondest. But before exchanging “I do’s”, one wedding tradition makes the union more exciting and memorable—a bridal shower dedicated to get the bride-to-be more thrilled for her big day!
This was what model, cover girl, beauty columnist/writer, turned actress-noontime TV host Kelly Misa experienced with the people dearest to her in a special bridal shower “spa-party” held last Saturday, July 24, at Hampton Function Room, Astoria Plaza in Mandaluyong City. This intimate event was carefully planned out by Metro Weddings magazine in honor of Kelly who was their previous cover girl. Every inch a lady, Kelly was pretty and blooming as she partied, dined and mingled with her handpicked showbiz and non-showbiz guests.
Hosted by Cesca Litton and Nicole Hernandez, the bridal shower spa-party was full of relaxing treats where the bride’s guests were pampered and treated like royalties upon entering the party venue. Each one’s thirst was quenched as they had their fill of delicious cocktails and surrendered to the pleasure of various calming spa treatments – facials, back and hand massages, foot spas, manicures and pedicures. They were also treated to a sumptuous meal prepared by Astoria Plaza.
After being welcomed by Metro Weddings Creative Director Trisha Chua, the fun-filled games started with “How well do you know the bride?” where friends and family members tried to outdo each other by fondly and, yes, competitively giving their answers at the emcees’ cue! As each delighted guest were warmed up with that, Mariel and Nicole announced the next game, the “DIY Bridal Gown and Bouquet” where creative juices flowed as five teams put together their creations made out of the limited materials, within the limited time. The creations were all so lovely and pretty but only one team emerged as the winner.
Excited for her upcoming union with long-time fiancée Carlos Fernandez, blushing bride-to-be Kelly was smiling from ear to ear while watching the avp produced by her Metro Weddings friends. It featured important people who made a difference in Kelly’s life. In response, she gave a heartfelt message of undending gratitude to everyone who was present and Kelly proceeded with the opening of gifts.
This event was made possible by sponsors Vitress, Jane Iredale with the support of Pevonia, Nailholics, Astoria Plaza, The Body Shop, Baicapture, Frostings and The Write Impression.
