Why Have a Batangas Wedding?

A beach wedding allows you to walk the aisle without the tight and rigid formalities of a traditional affair.  And of all the beaches that the Philippines offers, Batangas is one of the most accessible destinations in the south. Here, there are multiple classy resorts and beaches that any couple and their guests can enjoy. 

Plus, it’s perfect for the couples dreaming of a destination wedding, or a laid-back affair, or even a celebration close to nature. A wedding in any Batangas venue allows you to make the most of the natural beauty of the province and enjoy what the area has to offer—cool hillside views, gorgeous beaches, and a relaxing atmosphere. It’s why our Batangas wedding packages are so popular.

Design Inspiration and Tips for Your Batangas Wedding

Beach weddings are all about simplicity. Don’t be afraid to let the sunset or the shoreline backdrop do the heavy lifting. This is an excellent way to save money as it requires you to only pick out the essentials that will fit the venue well. Any kind of decoration you’re planning to implement should be balanced. Don’t let it overpower other elements of the wedding and the reception.  Here some examples that you can use for various elements of your Batangas Wedding Package.

Fashion Tips and Trends for Your Batangas Wedding

Keep your outfits low key and fitting for your Batangas wedding package. The beach can still be a formal event with the right elements that are opulent and well executed. Flow like the sea and wear dresses with light and airy materials. If you want to channel your inner Ariel, choose mermaid dresses for your guests and yourself.

Ladies have an endless catalog to choose from. Get creative and take inspiration from nature and the elements. For a pop of color don’t forget to incorporate jewel tones. If you’re a low key, chill kind of gal, earth tones will always be your friend. Show off your surfer side with anklets and bead bracelets. Opt for shoes that don’t sink in the sand and save yourself from discomfort.

Ladieswear:

  • Jewel Tone Cocktail Dresses
  • Pearlescent Accents
  • Hemp Anklets
  • Wood Bead Bracelets

Men can ditch the warm and uncomfortable polyester. The beach calls for comfortable linen and cotton shirts. Channel the rustic vibes by incorporating earth tones in your shorts or pants. Menswear doesn’t have to be completely neutral. Ocean blues and sea form greens also compliment a wide range of skin tones and hair colors.

Menswear:

  • Linen shirts
  • Khaki shorts
  • Leaflet Boutonnière
  • Boat Shoes
  • Espadrilles
  • Sandals

As the bride, go as elaborate or laid back as you need. Creatively use the power of the right hairstyle and accessory to take your look to the next level. Incorporate the elements of the sea and break the rules of tradition. Always involve any backup plans in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. Formal gowns can weigh you down and make you look heavy in the light atmosphere.

Bridal:

  • Wedges or Flats
  • Jeweled footwear
  • Floral Crowns
  • Shell Crown
  • Short or medium length wedding dresses (preferably strapless)

The groom is just as important as the blushing bride. Look your best and say yes to comfortable and beach appropriate attire. Be a standout at your destination wedding and incorporate light fabrics with statement pieces that make the nautical theme stand above others. Avoid absorbing direct sunlight and use light colored fabrics that discourage UV light absorption. Skip out on a heavy suit jacket. Layers are nice but for that perfect beachy style, similar to your bride, avoid looking heavy. Neutral tones can pop with the right splash of color, strategically placed on your footwear or accent accessories.

Groom:

  • Boat Shoes in Fun and Standout Colors
  • Coral Boutonnière
  • Slim Fit Tan Pants
  • Rayon Dress Shirt

Sound Check: Perfect Songs to Set the Mood

Whether it’s wedding venues in Batangas or elsewhere, wedding playlists are getting oversaturated with common ballads that everyone has heard before. For your beach wedding, to really set the mood, be brave and bold by trying out new songs that not only fit the destination but also don’t stray far away from the sunset romance. The impact of a good playlist is underrated, so if you don’t have a clue on what to play, try and listen to these songs that are definite hits on and off your Batangas wedding package:

  • “I Can See Clearly Now” Covered by Jimmy Cliff

This version by Jimmy Cliff was the first reggae song to reach #1 on the Hot 100 list. It stayed on top for four weeks in 1972. Johnny Nash got his inspiration for this song when he visited Jamaica. He wrote it himself and a cover version by Jimmy was recorded for Cool Runnings. His cover reached #18 in 1994.

  • “Beyond the Sea” Covered by Kina Grannis

This relaxing and romantic cover of Kina Grannis was originally by Bobby Darin. It’s direct an English translation of the song “La Mer”. The French song was originally recorded in the 1940s by Charles Trenet. The song was featured in the film “Every Girl Should Get Married”, starring Cary Grant. Bobby Darrin’s song was also featured in his own personal biography of the same name, with Kevin Spacey performing most acts and songs for the film.

  • “Can’t Help Falling in Love” Cover by Ingrid Michaelson

Somethings are meant to be and this cover by Ingrid Michaelson is that song to play for that perfect tear-jerking bridal entrance. This song was first featured in the film Blue Hawaii in 1961. It was written by George Weiss and sang by Elvis Presley. This is Elvis’ titular love song. He sang this song to his grandmother for her birthday, using only the tune of a music box and his vocals.

  • “Moon River” by Henry Mancini

This classic song is an award-winning ensemble written by Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer. The song was used as Audrey Hepburn’s theme song in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The song was made based on Audrey’s character Holly. Any cover of this song can stir up the right emotions for your Batangas wedding package.

  • “Stand by Me” by Ben E. King

Older songs always have a lasting charm and “Stand by Me” is no exception. The lyrics are simple but hold real and raw meaning behind each line. Ben E. King solidified himself as a solo artist in the 1960s by recording this song. It hit the charts at #4 in the US and #27 in the UK. Choosing Florence + The Machine’s cover can add a fantasy element with powerful angelic vocals and epic instrumentals.

Menu: Seaside Cuisine Ideas

Serve only the best food at your Batangas wedding package. Seafood and finger foods are good to serve on a sandy shore or poolside. The best part of a destination wedding is that you can choose to splurge as much as you want or budget accordingly without sacrificing quality.
