What do I wear?
Everyone is encouraged to come in their 50s inspired red carpet wear. You don’t have to worry about dressing up like your grandparents, although you’re welcome to if you like (I know I still wear pieces from both of my grandmothers’ closets). There is no particular color motif. Come in whatever color, print, and texture as you please.
Think Marilyn Monroe, Liz Taylor, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn.
halters, off shoulders, high waist, pencil or circle skirts, pleats, winged eyeliner, bright red lips, hats, kitten heels, peep toes, florals, lace, polka dots, pearls, or opt timeless filipiniana
Think Frank Sinatra, James Bond, or your favorite mafia boss.
crisp and long sleeve button-downs, bow ties, vests, suspenders, well-fitting suits, fedoras, sleek hair, also you could never go wrong with the classic barong
Don’t let these limit your options. You can get as creative as you want. 🙂
Friendly reminder though, as much as we love black long sleeved turtle necks a la Audrey Hepburn, it’s an outdoor reception on a summer’s day, ventilate accordingly. ; )
Where is Monterrazas de Cebu?
The back of the tickets on your invites has a map to the reception venue.
If you’re coming from Jollibee Guadalupe headed towards Guadalupe Barangay Hall, turn left at the corner with an Ogis Lechon Manok before reaching Fooda Savers. Watch out for the signage directing to Monterazzas de Cebu. Once you get to the subdivision gate, follow the directions or ask the guard to point you to The Pavillions. 🙂
Feel free to ask questions. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.
