Some of the things that people look forward to in a wedding are the cutting of the cake, the couple’s first dance, and of course the food. We all know food is important in every Filipino-related event so it is a great idea to have the reception in Manila for the wedding catering. However, one of the most—if not the most—touching moments in the wedding is the father-daughter dance. Many people find it sweet that the bride is dancing with her father, the best man in her whole world.
