Balesin Island, a private membership club off the coast of Manila, has always been seen as an exclusive and wildly inaccessible destination. Well-known couples like Heart Evangelista and Gov. Chiz Escudero, and Coleen Garcia and Billy Crawford got married there. Fortunately for ambitious brides, everything isn't what it seems, because Balesin's now officially open for all nuptials!

Once exclusively for members or those with sponsors, the island is now letting guests into the island to celebrate their special day! 

From a 100-guest wedding package that initially costs six million pesos, their new value package takes the price down to roughly P2.5 million. The best part? It essentially offers the same accommodations as the former, with certain expenses made absolutely free! According to CEO Mike Asperin, at this rate, a wedding at Balesin is cheaper than holding one in the top resorts of popular destinations in the country such as Boracay and El Nido. 

Included in the list of the free amenities are the use of the Balesin Marquee and their Versace-inspired super yacht, a two-night engagement photoshoot, and a horse drawn wedding carriage to satiate your royal wedding dreams, among others.

Boasting of 20 venues to choose from for your ceremony and reception, the 500-hectare private island is comprised of seven villages, each culturally themed after alluring international wedding destinations from Bali, Greece, Spain, France, and more. Think about it, there's no need to fly out of the country when the world's top wedding locations are a just a 30-minute plane ride away from Manila.
