Boracay closure crashes Fil-Am bride’s Philippine destination wedding

For some, a wedding can take months to plan, but moments to ruin. One Filipina was hoping to tie the knot in Boracay a few weeks from now — however, the 6-month closure has forced her to change plans.

“Planning a destination wedding is like international relations at the same time, but really the reason why I wanted to have the wedding in the Philippines, is I wanted people to have a moment to experience Filipino culture,” says Celeste Perez.

Less than two weeks ago, she had to reroute her may 8th destination wedding in Boracay to an eco-sanctuary in El Nido.

“Moving 100 people from one island to another is not an easy feat, particularly when you have to book not just their reservations at a resort, you also have to make sure everyone can get on a flight onto of that you have all the other people displaced from Boracay.”

Luckily for Miguel, the resort at El Nido was able to help in rebooking guests’ travel plan…while she was able to get refunds on most of her Boracay bookings.”

Despite the last minute changes, Perez hasn’t turned into bridezilla.

“I’m still excited I’m getting married; that’s the only thing that really matters. We get to celebrate our wedding with our friends. I feel when we get there it’ll all be worth it, and this is a story we’ll tell for the rest of our lives.”
