10 Great Venues for the Wedding of Your Dreams
Versatile spaces to fit your aesthetic.
(SPOT.ph) Picking a wedding venue is one of the first decisions on a couple’s to-do list. It’s a big deal because it sets the tone of your big day and can influence your other choices when it comes to booking suppliers. Industry experts suggest making a reservation at least one year before the wedding.
While hotel ballrooms are a conventional option and courtyards have become popular, event venues not only design favorable full-service packages, but they also offer versatility to fit a couple’s aesthetic. Below, we round up 10 event venues that leave room for styling to help make your wedding feel more connected to the space.
Planning your wedding? Check out these event venues in Manila:
The Fifth at Rockwell
Rates start at P350,000
Maximum capacity of 500 pax
With over 1,000 square meters of floor area, The Fifth at Rockwell is a well-equipped venue that’s quite accessible. Though it’s connected to Power Plant Mall and shares the same parking space, it has its own lift access, which still makes it feel premium. For a banquet, it can accommodate up to 500 guests; but if your wedding reception is more intimate, you may opt to book just half of the main hall. What sets this space apart is the massive panoramic LED screen—23 meters wide—already included in the rental fee. Imagine how immersive your same-day edit would be when flashed on that screen!
Manila Polo Club
35 McKinley Road, Forbes Park, Makati City
8817-0951-62 locals 240 to 246
Rates start at P230,000
Maximum capacity of 400 pax
You need to be a member to enjoy the amenities and facilities of The Manila Polo Club. Otherwise, you’ll need a club member—a family member or a friend—to book the venue for you. Don’t be troubled though, because exclusivity comes with perks. The Club puts forward personalized service of the highest quality and meticulously plans every detail of your event with and for you.
Phase 1 Block 3 Lot 4, Santiago Street, Paseo de Magallanes Commercial Center, Makati City
Rates start at P60,000
Maximum capacity of 110 pax
Located at the penthouse of a building with a modern glass façade, Mets Place can be transformed into your space. It boasts a spectacular view of the Makati skyline and an al fresco area that lets you and your guests enjoy the cool air.
One Canvas Events Place
2235 Don Chino Roces, Pasong Tamo Extension, Barangay San Lorenzo, Makati City
Rates start at P112,000
Maximum capacity of 450 pax
From the same group that built One Esplanade at the Mall of Asia Complex, One Canvas has a modern gallery feel that enables you to tailor fit the place to your wedding theme. Its location is also conveniently close to several churches and hotels.
Marquis Events Place
G/F Marquis Building, Rizal Drive, Bonifacio Global City
Maximum capacity of 1,000 pax
Marquis Events Place is a well-crafted events space that offers the same services most five-star hotels provide minus the guest rooms. Its grand ballroom echoes opulence, thanks to its high ceiling and origami-inspired wall treatment and furnishing. The chandeliers, fashioned to look like a flock of crystal cranes in flight, are hard to miss. And if you’ve always dreamed of wearing a Francis Libiran creation down the aisle, Marquis Events Place can make it happen thanks to their partnership.
Casa Real Town Center, Acacia Estates, Barangay Bambang, Taguig City
Rates start at P30,500
Maximum capacity of each hall is 130 pax
Casa Real was built from the restored pieces of the Tuason Residence, which used to stand on Sociego Street in Sampaloc, Manila. The actual flooring, window frames, staircases, balusters, and plant boxes—about 80% percent of the original house—were restored and transported piece by piece to its new location to keep the near-century old Spanish Colonial Revival style and historical significance intact. Transformed into an events venue by developer DMCI Homes, Casa Real provides an illustrious space for celebrating such milestones. Guests are immediately transported to Old Manila’s bucolic atmosphere and dramatic grandeur, especially if you decide on a Filipiniana-themed wedding.
The Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan
Robinsons Bridgetowne, E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue, Libis, Quezon City
Rates start at P205,000
Maximum capacity of 1,000 pax
The neutral colors of its halls make The Blue Leaf Cosmopolitan the perfect blank canvas to do it your own way. It has three function halls with a capacity of 330 pax each, designed with high ceiling and contemporary interiors. Though it’s situated in the heart of a commercial and business district, the purposeful and deliberate display of foliage around the halls creates a more relaxed ambience.
The Felicidad Mansion
2 Baler Street corner Roosevelt Avenue, San Francisco Del Monte, Quezon City
Rates start at P25,000
Maximum capacity of 250 pax
The Felicidad Mansion has a fascinating European architecture where old meets new. The space welcomes you with intricately carved doors, crystal chandeliers, and a picturesque fountain that make for the perfect backdrop for your romantic shots. There’s a familiar charm to the act of walking up the staircase and entering the storied halls of what used to be home of the Tayag-Martin Family. If it’s a homey, nostalgic mood you fancy for your wedding reception, you’ve come to the right place.
The Grand Cobo Events Place
3 Mt. Kennedy Street, Mountainview Village, Marikina City
Rates start at P70,000
Maximum capacity of 600 pax
The Grand Cobo sits on an expansive property within a quiet subdivision east of Metro Manila. Its main hall is coated in gold and beige hues, giving off a quiet elegance that’s warm and inviting. An overlooking veranda also provides the guests a panoramic mountain view of Marikina, bringing forth a sweeping sense of serenity.
37 Bagong Calzada Street, Ususan, Taguig City
Rates start at P26,000
Maximum capacity of 250 pax
Though guests don’t normally make a literal splash at wedding receptions, a poolside adds a fun facet to an otherwise formal affair. Alta Guia gives this option to couples that like to throw the beer-and-skittles kind of party. On the flip side, this venue also has a ballroom replete with a grand staircase and an obscenely ornate chandelier to make your wedding reception feel more luxurious. The poolside can then serve as a pre-cocktail lounge prior to the main reception.
