Kasalang Bayan 2024

In celebration of love and unity,
LGU Bolinao holds “Kasalang Bayan” 2024

The Local Government Unit of Bolinao through the initiative of Mayor Alfonso F. Celeste, M.D., successfully hosted the much-anticipated Mass Wedding otherwise known as “Kasalang Bayan” last May 23, 2024 at Bolinao, Pangasinan. A total of forty nine (49) couples coming from different barangays in the municipality have tied the knot in the remarkable mass wedding ceremony which took place at the grounds of the new municipal building, the Balin Bolinao.
Over the years, the Kasalang Bayan Program of the Office of the Municipal Mayor in collaboration with the Local Civil Registrar has become a tradition, offering assistance to its constituents in easing the economic burden to avail a legal marriage. And as the activity gets better each year, the LGU made sure to elevate this year’s preparations to make it a lasting memory for all the participating couples. The processing of certificate of no marriage, application of marriage license, and pre-marriage and counselling fees were waived. The couples were also provided with bridal bouquet, boutonniere, and wedding ring to be worn for the occasion. On the actual day, they were treated to a complete experience as they were welcomed by a full set-up wedding venue with catering services, and photo booth. During the wedding ceremony, the newlyweds were also feted with the traditional cake-cutting and wine tasting. They were then provided with souvenir mugs and gifts, as well cash gift to help them start in their new journey.
Much to the delight of the newlyweds, special awards were given to the Oldest Couple, Most Determined Couple, Most Romantic Couple, Most Emotional Groom, and Best Attire. Winners were also awarded with a certificate and cash prize. Mr. and Mrs. Amorada, who are both 65 years old, and awarded as the Oldest Couple during the occasion, has been co-habiting for 45 years before getting married at the “Kasalang Bayan” 2024. Because of this, the newlyweds expressed their gratitude to the LGU for giving them the opportunity to finally seal their union.
Mayor Alfonso Celeste in his message during the ceremony, highlighted the importance of matrimony and the essence of this commitment that should not be taken lightly but rather honored, and respected at all times.
The Kasalang Bayan is not only a celebration of love and commitment but also a testament to the unity and resilience of the community, a lifelong advocacy of Mayor Celeste rooted in his mantra :
“Helping others is a way of thanking God.”
To all the newlyweds, the Local Government of Bolinao extends its congratulations and well wishes as you embark on this remarkable journey!
