How much does a wedding in Manila Cathedral cost?

Jomar and I will have our Philippine Catholic wedding in July.

To enlighten those who want to have their Sacrament of Holy Matrimony in the beautiful and historic Manila Cathedral, I will share with you how much it cost.

Why did we pick Manila Cathedral?

I want to say because it's historical and beautiful but in reality, it's because they have relevant information on their website for a couple like us living and legally married abroad. It's the convenience of them responding to phone calls and email in a timely manner.

Bonus is it's historical and beautiful. According to one of my Ninang, ang haba ng walk down the aisle mo. I didn't think of that. I'm not sure if I like it. LOL.

They also have a dashboard where you complete the forms and it lists what you need to submit and when. It's pretty impressive.


The first thing you do is go to their website and reserve a wedding date. Register and you will receive an email to attend a Wedding Orientation. I reserved this October 12, 2018. The orientation is November 10, 2018. Obviously, we couldn't attend so I responded to the email and they told me we can send a representative by preparing an authorization letter. The representative should be able to tell us all the details we need to know about.

They are strictly implementing a NO ORIENTATION, NO RESERVATION policy.

Cost Breakdown

The Manila Cathedral-Basilica offers two wedding package rates: 

Package A (without aircon): P32, 000.00 
Package B (with aircon): P42, 000.00 

After the orientation, we were asked to pay a Php 10, 000.00 reservation fee if we want to proceed no later than November 24, 2018. Obviously, we did.

The dashboard has all the information you need. The two other things you can Manila Cathedral for are flower upgrade (breakdown in the image below) and if you want the air condition open an hour or 30 minutes before the ceremony.

I hope this help as you plan your wedding. I can't wait to see how it goes in July but for now, we're back at work to pay for this wedding. If you have any questions, please feel free to leave a comment and I'll do my best to respond.
