So it’s final.
We’ll have our Church Wedding on the 19 of December this year. (insert happy face here)
I did not brag about it too much because 1) mahabang entry yun for sure and I don’t have the luxury of time to do that. 2) Nakaka-stress pala talaga ang mgprepare ng Wedding no? Seminars, Workshops, file ng kung ano anong papers dito at dun, and then interview with the Priest. 3) Hindi pa finalize yung list ng suppliers ko. 😦
But then, once in a lifetime lang naman tong Wedding namin. I mean, pangalawang wedding na pala namin to. The first one was in 2012, it was a civil wedding. And then we planned the church wedding this year but sa super busy namin ay (unfortunately) hindi ko masyadong natutukan. So yeah, mejo ngarag ang peg ko po.
Why did we choose to get married again? Honestly speaking, it was not really us who wanted the Church wedding. Considering kasi na we have Saab na and we have a lot of gastos e sasabay pa ba namin yung engradeng kasal? Diba, practicality wise na lang. But then again, bilang isang practicing Catholic ang Nanay ko sympre pinush nya yun. She told us kasi na iba talaga if may blessing na ng Church. Isa pa, I’m the eldest daughter daw and of course dream ng parents ko na maihatid naman ako sa altar hindi ba? Martin naman is the only son so syempre once in a lifetime lang din yung maghahatid si Mommy sa altar. Oh well, in short we gave in to what they want. Hindi naman sa ayaw talaga namin pero syempre may mga bagay lang kami na kino-consider. But then, dahil mahal ko ang mga magulang ko and I also wanted our marriage to be blessed e pumayag na kami. 🙂
Our My chosen date was on the 19th of December. 19 kasi is my favorite number, and it is actually the day after Saab’s birthday 🙂 Ang galing nga e, kasi Dec 18 2010 ko naging crush si Martin then ayun yung naging birthday ni Saab. Tapos after 5 years and 1 day, we’ll have our Church Wedding. Awwww everything’s falling into place. ♥ I shared it with Martin and okay naman sa kanya yung date. Ang lapit sa pasko at birthday ni Saab 🙂 triple celebration to in the coming years.
But the real stressor is, hindi pa nga kumpleto yung suppliers ko. anong petsa na?!
For Catering services we have My Precious Events. Our contact person namin is Jaimee Lee Maniquis. She is very helpful and mabaet to talk to. I met her once for the food tasting I’ll blog about the food we chose on a separate entry. It also includes the Lights and Sounds plus the 2 layered cake. Pero I’m having second thoughts pa sa cake kasi I think 2,500 is mahal. What do you think guys? hindi pa yan Fondant cake ah. Let me know if you know someone na nag-be-bake ng wedding cakes na affordable ang price. Feel free to comment or send me a message. 🙂
My Gown – The original plan talaga is for me to look RTW gowns in divi, but again weekends lang ang freetime ko and super kulang ang time namin every weekends because of household chores. So since I am so bright and practical I looked and searched online. For sure meron mas magaganda and mas maayos na wedding gowns out there. So yes! I got it from OLX, and according to the owner (Giselle) hindi talaga nagamit yung gown sa wedding, it was just used for a pictorial. (Perfect!) So there. Check na ang wedding gown ko, it just needs some dry-cleaning and alterations and we’re good to go. I’ll not show the pic here kasi I wanted it to be surprised. Simple lang sya guys as in simple lang. 🙂 Ang important naman kasi is not the gown, but it’s the sacrament of marriage itself duhba?!
For the Church – We chose St. Maria Goretti Parish in UN Avenue. I wanted to have it sana in Paco Park but I find it a bit pricey, so we looked for other options. Every girl yata is dreaming to have like a big and grand wedding but not for me. I don’t know, I feel kasi na hindi naman importante kung gaano ka-bongga ang wedding mo e. At the end of the day, you were able to celebrate it with the people who loves and supports your relationship. Simple lang the church, hindi sya ganun kalaki kasi we invited lang around 100 guests and hindi kasi maganda sa picture if hindi puno ang simbahan.
Theme – Ang theme will be rustic and vintage. Ayan ang uso ngayon. The chalkboards and vintage features ang in na in ngayon. 🙂 I have several ideas in mind and here are some cute photos I found from pinterest ♥
I like this idea kasi it’s simple yet classy ang dating. 🙂 And speaking of simple, the chalkboards? So mura lang in National Bookstore, paano pa kaya sa divi? hihi I can’t wait to go to divi with my BFF.
The Motif – I chose teal and coral. Idk , I find those colors so relaxing. Before, my idea of is to have blue and orange but I find the colors too strong e so I stick with teal and coral instead.
I like to be hands-on sa wedding namin. Kasi aside sa malaki ang matitipid namin is mas magiging memorable sya. We still have a lot of things to buy and to arrange. As in madami pa but I am really trying by best to compose myself and gather my thoughts. Breathe in, breathe out talaga mga beks. I’ll have updates once in a while and if you have suggestions if you also love to do DIY’s please teach me how. I’ll be so happy to learn. ♥
