Seal the deal in the midst of art! Here are local museums that double as wedding or proposal venues.

Marriage is a milestone that many couples celebrate with their families and peers. It is the time when newlyweds start to picture the next chapter of their lives, hear endearing wishes, savour the scrumptious wedding dishes, dance, and whatnot. 

Because of traditional marriage customs, most Filipinos prefer exchanging vows inside places of worship. But in the modern world, adventurous couples think of fun and exciting ways to seal the deal. 

In this article, Tatler features some of the most unusual wedding venues in the Philippines—museums!
