Dear fellow travelers.
I have unsuccessfully searched the net and therefore I am now posting my question to you.
I wish to have my wedding dress made in Manila, from either a fashion designer or skilled tailor. The designer or the tailor must have a large selection of fabrics. Another solution might be a wedding dress shop, but here I do not want a large selection of princess dresses with rhinestones and pearls but more simple and classic models.
I have no idea where I should go? All tailors or designers I can find online is for men.
I'm from the U.S. is going to the american consulate a must or is it optional? Any good reasons to go there first?

Is it not safe to do the Tall Volcano trek during September? i wrote to a tour operator in manila who stated they cant take us on the tour cos its the rainy season. However there are other tour operators who do operate during this time.
My flight arrives at 9:45am (Cathay Pacific) and I'm aware there is only one other flight landing around that time so it's going to be relatively quiet. I've arranged to be sitting near the top of the aircraft as well!!
With that in mind, how long will it take to get through immigration and get my bags off the caurosel and into a taxi? Any opinions, stories etc would be greatly appreciated. I need to get to the Irish Consulate by 11:45am
Thaks in advance
Do they offer sim cards for tourists in Manila? I need one for a few calls as well as data to use the internet on my phone. Pls let me know the rates as well if anyone knws. Thanks a bunch!
