Kasalang Filipino 2011: The Bucolic Charm of Weddings in Nueva Ecija

Rice figures prominently not only on Filipino dining tables but also in Filipino wedding practices. In pre-colonial times, rice is exchanged between families to solemnize marriages. And then there is the "rice shower" still practiced in wedding ceremonies.

Where else can you best shower your wedding with rice than in Nueva Ecija - the “Rice Bowl of the Philippines"? And if you think Nueva Ecija only has the popular grains to offer for your destination wedding, think of having its luscious rice fields as your wedding backdrop or having the bucolic charm of Nueva Ecija tourist spots, such as Gen. Luna Falls, Minalungao National Park among others, as your wedding come on. Novo Ecijano wedding suppliers - from wedding venues to wedding photographers - would also be more than willing to extend their warm hospitality to you.

This February 18-20, 2011, Novo Ecijano wedding suppliers will showcase their growing wedding industry during Kasalan sa Cabanatuan wedding and tourism fair exhibit in Robinsons Cabanatuan.
