Accomodation and Wedding Venue Help!

I have a relative that is getting married in Vigan. I must say that the place looks like a great historic place for a wedding. Calesas cobblestone roads and aged and historic spanish buildings.

Accomodation options are limited but from my searching of TA the best option appears to be the Vigan Plaza Hotel . Id like to have perhaps anyone else's options and opinions on accomodation in Vigan and perhaps the best place you would recommend for a wedding and why?

This forum doesnt generate a lot of questions or have a lot of information available and from the pics Ive seen it looks a great place to visit!

It would also be a great opportunity for me to visit Pagapud which is not too far away from the Loag airport where one arrives and Saud Beach looks a great option.

Are the happy couple Catholic and if so is a Church wedding under consideration?

One party is Catholic the other is a Christian! I believe it will be a church wedding but arrangements are only in the very early stages.I do notice some very beautiful heritage listed old churches in Vigan.

Your happy couple will need to obtain approval from the local Bishop if I recall.

There is a fair bit of paperwork before a Filipino wedding on both the civil and religious sides.

VL thanks for the advice. Ill let them know.

As the Vigan Forum is not a forum that generates many questions(surprisingly??? as a world heritage site) I am not expecting many replies.

I once saw a wedding reception along the heritage street called Calle Crisologo. I assume it was a stunning backdrop for the bridal photos --> brideandbreakfast.ph/2010/…

Hi Tommo,

Here is the list of hotels in Vigan - …blogspot.com/2012/05/05-hotels-in-vigan.html

If you are a big group and remind them you are here for a wedding, there should be many discounts in store.

As it is "mandatory" in all weddings to have a wedding photographer in tow, you can expect some very good photos to remember this occasion.

(if this is you first Phils wedding, it is similar to how weddings are done in USA, China and Korea - with beautiful bridal dresses, fantasy decor, and with a lot more food and frolic thrown in, and a lot many more photographs)

Hope you have / had a good time - do show us some of the photos / point us the way to their link.
