Monte di Portofino

Hello everyone! I know I've been a bad blogger for the whole month of June and due to my busy schedule at work thus the lack of posts relating to wedding. My sister will be disappointed if I don't post the food tastings we've attended on her behalf so I'm going to post those caterers even if it's not the wedding month. In preparation for the future posts, I'm uploading the photos in my Flickr account so it will b a breeze to put the pictures in my blog post.

Enough of my babbling and let's get down to this venue that my sister and her fiance selected. This was their first choice from the beginning and though there are some hesitations on my sister's part because of the space  she finally decided to give it a go since it's the cheapest with a scenic view to boot in Alabang.

Monte di Portofino Clubhouse
Before you will need a sponsorship from a member of Portofino in order for you to use their clubhouse but as years passed, they decided to open it to non-members as well. It's a great news especially if your looking for a venue that is nice and photogenic without breaking your wallet.

For the rental fee for non-members, it's Php 30,000. For members, I think it's Php 20,000. Reservation fee is 50% of the total fee for the venue which is Php 15,000. Reservations must be made at least 1 month prior to the event date at the PHHOA Administration office (subject to availability).

For the rental fee of the clubhouse, event should be strictly within 8am-10pm only. Furthermore, events are limited within the clubhouse vicinity only.
Lobby Area
Grande Roma that can accommodate up to 180 guests

Main Entrance to Grande Roma...this is also where the newlyweds will make a grand entrance

Caterer buffet setup will be in this area. This is also included on the venue rental of Php 30k
The pantry/kitchen area for caterers
Overlooking the venue is a pool
Should anyone wish to include the usage of swimming pool in there event, that's additional of Php 25,000 on top of the venue rental fee.

Portofino doesn't allow cooking in any form. Firecrackers and candle balloons (lanterns) are strictly prohibited.

All decorations such as curtains, backdrops and other accessories must be coordinated with the Administration office prior to the installation. Use of any fasteners (screws, nails, adhesive tapes, etc) in any part of the walls, ceilings or floor is prohibited.

Since there are some restrictions in using the venue, the best way to have the perfect reception on your event is to coordinate with the PHHOA Administration Office and with your event stylist/caterer.

You have to admit for the price of Php 30,000 the place is definitely a good deal. You'll just need to add a few things and voila! A magical reception will be unveiled. I can't wait for the outcome of this place during my sister's wedding in November.
