LOOK: The Joyous Despedida de Soltera of Nicole Tantoco
The bride's parents Donnie and Crickette Tantoco threw the gorgeous bash at Whitespace Manila.

As an official goodbye to singlehood, Rustan Commercial Corporation President Donnie Tantoco and his wife, Crickette, threw a despedida de soltera for their daughter, Nicole, who is marrying architect Miko de los Reyes.

The night was filled with love, laughter, and dancing. See the photos from the joyous despedida de soltera below.

Close family and friends were welcomed to the despedida de soltera.

The entrance was adorned with hanging greenery.

The set-up was all about natural and rustic elements.

The tables were decorated with lamps, candles, and delicate sprigs of baby's breath.

The pastel-hued desserts were not to be missed.

A grazing table made for the perfect appetizer spread.

The table was filled with cheese, cold cuts, bread, and fruits.

The photo area was accessorized with a porch swing...

...While a memory tree served as the backdrop.

Guests were requested to take a card and write down their favorite memory with the bride-to-be.

There was a Broadway-style performance named "Broadchella," led by jazz dance group Whiplash.

But the real highlight was Donnie Tantoco's advice to his daughter.

He told her: "Fix your eyes on Jesus."
