Here's my sort of ratings from my daughter's dedication last nov 10. It was an intimate affair 30 guests lang and 2 godparents. She will have her baptismal naman this dec 23at ctk.
Church- no fee. She had her dedication at our church lead by our pastor. It was very personalized and everybody enjoyed the sermon. Worth it ang 30 mins. hehe. I should have opted to decorate the stage though para mas maganda ang photo ops.
Reception - Max's antipolo -15k standard package. We only got the standard package good for 30 pax and i must say super sulit na sha. They have baptismal package kasi na parang all-in na that's why i did not worry about decorating the place. We chose pink, white and purple as colors ng balloon. Set up na lahat when we arrived. Super dami ng food. Sakto sa 30 or lumampas pa yata but still ang dami pa ring natirang food. Mabilis din ang service nila. May free souvenir din na cookies, bassinet for the baby and gift din for her --reeiving blanket yata. Ang pinaka hassle lang is when you want to hav your own cake. Additional 500 for the corkage fee. Since ours did not come with cake, i orderedone from the goldilocks celebration cakes. One tip lang mga sis, if you know anybody working in max's, they have this referral card na 5% discount on your final bill. Sayang din yun.
Invites - comes with max's package. I just bought additional invites from national bookstore for the godparents and for our pastor.
Cake- goldilocks baptismal cake. The 8 x 10 size ba yun. All for 800 php. We served it during the reception and may take out pa rin kami.
Souvenir - 1,500 for 20 pcs ceramic shoes with baby with sinamay packaging. Bought this in divisoria. Kakaloka nga since i did notknow na mas makakamura ako had i scouted the streets of tabora. Parang namahalan ako sa 75 pesos per piece. Though maganda naman and pwede talagang pan display.
Baby's outfit sa church - 250 php. Bought this also on divisoria. Cute ng design and it kay baby. Shoes around 350 php bought sa rustans.
Baby's reception outfit-450 php. Gift ng mom ko. We want a comfy dress kasi so change outfit si baby. Shoes bought din sa rustans around 350 php din. Colo red ang cute pwede pang gamitin pag umaalis kami.
I'll be posting my ratings in aftermy daughter's baptismal this dec 23. Mas marami na akong inputs that time.
