Piña In Modern Filipino Weddings

Piña Barong by Piñaflor
No fabric is probably more uniquely Filipino than piña. It is a testament to our colorful history and is one of the finest products of Filipino craftsmanship. Painstakingly handwoven from the pineapple fiber, the piña fabric is identified with traditional formals and is the deluxe choice for Filipiniana wedding gowns and barongs. In this age of themed weddings and modern celebrations, however, can the piña fabric still be relevant?

, a Lumban-based wedding shop specializing in piña fabrics and embroidery, tells us how.

June has been traditionally believed as the most popular month for weddings.

The history of weddings being celebrated on June started as far back as the Roman times when the people believed in the Roman gods and goddesses. The people then celebrated Juno, wife of Jupiter and the goddess of marriage and childbirth, and believed she would bring fortune and happiness to those who will be married on her month. More importantly in countries located far above the equator, June also signified the start of warm season. Getting married during those time would mean that children conceived by these unions would be born on the next spring. The probability of life would be greater for the baby.

In the Philippines, June would be the end of the summer season where the weather will not be too hot as it welcomes the season of rains. While you can opt for an outdoor wedding  like a garden venue for your reception, be wary of the weather. Rain may come and it is best that you provide tents to avoid getting wet. Flowers abundant during this month are lilies, daisies, carnations and roses. Popular colors are yellow, green, pink and lilac.
Be aware also that the weather may turn cool so it is best to have fashionable wraps for the bride and her bridesmaids. More importantly, wear something you're comfortable with. Serve a wedding buffet that offers hot and cold items. Don't forget to incorporate seasonal fruits and cool wedding cocktails.

To perfectly execute your dream June wedding, you can ask wedding professionals to help you out. Here's a list of the newest members of's family of wedding suppliers:
