Kasal.com, the essential Filipino wedding guide, was adjudged the Best Website and People's Choice for Home and Living at the 5th Philippine Web Awards last November 29 at Dusit Hotel Nikko, Makati.
The site won over nine semi-finalists for the People's Choice Award and four finalists for the Best Website Award.
The reviewers and judges of the Web Awards rated the nominated sites on four criteria, namely, content, design, usability and functionality. For the People's Choice Award, the winners were determined through online and mobile phone votes.
This is the second time that Kasal.com, one of the brands of Web Philippines, Inc., was nominated in the Web Awards.
Mathel B. Ong, brand manager of Kasal.com, says, "Kasal.com will continue to offer more services to make it faster and easier for couples-to-be to plan their wedding, and for local wedding suppliers to take advantage of the benefits of the Internet." She adds, "By connecting the couples-to-be to our local wedding suppliers (and also local destinations) and by helping SMEs bring their business online, we hope to help our government in making the Philippines a prime wedding destination in Asia."
