Actress-host Cheska Garcia shared that she and her soon-to-be-husband basketball star Douglas Kramer have arranged for a Mediterranean cruise on their honeymoon.

"We are planning to take a romantic Mediterranean cruise for our honeymoon," Garcia says.

Kramer and Garcia will exchange marriage vows under Christian rites on October 9.

Aside from having a romantic cruise in Mediterranean, Garcia also enjoyed the Mediterranean-inspired bridal shower that was hosted by Metro Weddings magazine.
The bridal shower happened at Mandarin Oriental Manila' Nash function room. The room was filled with flowers like cabbage roses, yellow anastasia and chrysanthemums. The flower arrangements were placed side-by-side the selection of pita bread, rolls, bread sticks and assortment of dips.

A delicious bridal shower cake that was inspired by the travel theme also completed the event. Tall vases filled with lemons greeted the guests at the entrance while upbeat percussions resonated in the air.
Garcia's good friend Cesca Litton prepared the guest list, comprised of Garcia's good friends and entourage members.

The party host prepared fun games for the group of ladies and great prizes were given to the winners. But, the highlight of the affair was a surprise belly/pole dance number by Movement Studio's Lala Dinglasan.

Two poles were revealed as Lala gracefully and astoundingly worked the pole. The girls were shrieking as she eventually taught Garcia and some of the guests some moves. This unique touch, is the biggest trend in entertainment for bridal showers. Without being too risqué, the dance is both fun and tastefully done.
Guests received as tokens blue-lime-and-yellow colored embroidered cosmetic bags were made for the guests to take home.

In the event, Garcia adored the things she received, including the coordinated laundry bag, toiletry kit, flip-flop bag, lingerie case, bikini bag and carry-all tote, with her name embroidered on each item.
Her dearest friends, and entourage members like Liz Uy (non-showbiz sweetheart of actor John Lloyd Cruz) were also present to honor Cheska as she embarks on her new starring role as wife.
