^Nakaka-miss ang stress ng wedding reps. Buti ka pa mahaba ang time-frame mo for your wedding preps. Ako I only had 5 months. Hehe. December 2017 bride here. I only had my preps July 2017. Buti na lang first I booked is coordinator. They helped me a lot.

Hi there! 2020 bride here, we haven't booked any supplier yet. But we already have a church and a wedding of our choice. Mejo mahirap magprep since my fianc? is onboard, they don't have a stable net connection. So I can't really ask for his opinion and suggestions. 2017 & 2018 brides, can you help me find a good and reliable supplier for my wedding day? And do they already accept booking kaya? :)

YES! I was surprised that when I booked my cake supplier, meron na siyang 2020 bookings. And for me cake isn't a priority pa ah, pero may nag-book na more than a year ahead.  What more the critical suppliers like churches and venues

^ next year ako. Researched and booked everything this year, but it's a simple wedding lang naman. But really, it's never too early to research and inquire, esp. if you end up liking the popular vendors who are almost always booked.  ;D

Hi, sis! 2017 bride here. Para makatipid, nag DIY kami ng mga kaya naming i-DIY like souvenirs, invitation (hubby is a graphic designer so siya ang nagdesign at naghanap lang kami ng magandang printing shop), wands na ginamit namin sa church, yung mga pinang-display din namin sa registration area DIY din and missalette kami na din nagprint. :)

Hi there, 2020 bride too! Yes, when I tried to check Calaruega and Chapel on Hill for Jan/Feb 2020, almost booked na yung slots for weekends. So I now have to find other church options in Tagaytay because I really want to get married Jan/Feb.

December 2018 bride here. But we got engaged Feb 2017 pa. I suggest, maaga mag start kahit you think tiny details na pwede naman "sa susunod na", mas okay na umpisahan na.
Para yung mga months pag malapit na, mabibigay mo oras mo para sa pag asikaso documents.
6 months validity - Cenomar
4 months (I think) - Marriage License
Tapos yung mga seminar pa

Ang mahirap sa mahabang engagement, nagbabago mga gusto throughout ng preps. Hehe, marami kang nakikita na biglang parang mas gusto mo kesa sa unang choice.
Basta kapag naka book ka na supplier, wag ka na mag tingin ng iba sa same field haha!

We are getting married on January 2020. Booked na namin ang venue, caterer, coordinator, photo and video. We are having mid-range to some high end sa major suppliers. Possible budget I can feel is around 1.4M.

Hello sis! Congrats. :) I suggest decide first if you will do a church wedding, garden, or beach, etc.  Then decide or match that kung anong month, location, time, mo gusto, considering weather conditions and costs. If you will do a catholic church wedding, you should definitely start booking for the church na kasi ang bilis nila mabook especially if you want your wedding to be in Tagaytay. Happy preps! :)

Almost all would require a down payment. The DP amount depends.. yung iba fixed fee of 5k-10k, yung iba ranging from 20-50%. Some suppliers offer good discounts if you pay 100% upon booking.

Thanks sis. Kaya natin to. Ang dilemma ko lang, since onboard si h2b aside sa I'll do the prep. Hindi din sila stable internet. I can't always ask for advice. Anyway, to all 2020 brides. May wedding ba dito in Holy Child Chapel in Taguig?

Hello ladies!

I've just read the '2019 Brides' thread and may '2020 Brides' na rin pala! Shocks! *panic mode*
We got engaged last December lang and we wanted to push the wedding last quarter of this year sana.  Pero siguro if hindi kaya, first quarter of 2020 na lang. What do you guys think? Wala pa kaming nasisimulan!  :o

We might attend the bridal fair this weekend. Ang bilis naman ng araw! Hahaha!

To answer your question sis, oo naman :) pwede ka na magpareserve ng church ng ganyang kaaga. we reserved our church Sept 2016 (days right after we got engaged) and got married last oct 2017 :) para din okay yung makuha mong slot esp. the date and time. may mga church kasi na ilang weddings yung inaaccommodate nila within the day kaya better na mas maaga :) opinion lang naman. hope makatulong :D

Got proposed to 7days ago pero nagpareserve na kame ng church 1st week ng January this week.

Yas  2020 bride here too. Nakakaloka lang na almost puno ma yung weekends slot ng church na gusto namin. Kaya ayun 3rd quarter na kame ng 2020. Kala ko pa naman maaga pa masyado para magpareserve ng church 😂
Title: Re: 2020 Brides
Post by: red_yesha on January 27, 2019, 05:20:45 am
detteski tama ka!! Nakapag pa reserved na kami ng date yey! Thank you 😊.
Weekday pinili namin para makatipid hehe.

sassy_gal18 wowww 2020 ka rin. Congrats!

Nauna ang pagplano ng wedding namin hindi pa sya nagpopropose sakin haha. Well, ok lang naman sakin kahit wala nun, pero sabe nya mag propose pa din daw sya. Magugulat nalang daw ako.
Anyway, hindi ako aasa para magulat talaga ako hehe.

Gusto ko sana 50 lang ang iinvite namin sa kasal. Pero mukang malabo yun. Yung bf ko kasi daming kamag anak. Mapa Manila o Probinsya.
Sana umepek yung taktika namin na itapat sa weekday. 200k lang budget namin. Yoko na sana lumagpas dun. Huhu.
Unting tao= mas intimate at matipid.
Nga pala, Wedding rites ang kinuha namin P 2.5k lang though hindi pa ako nakaka attend sa ganun set up hehe.

Both kameng working abroad ni h2b so ngaun palang nghahanap nako ng possible venue pra mkpgocular visit kpg ngbakasyon kme this year.

Sa caleruega ko sna gusto mgpakasal. Gusto ko kc ng maliit na church [textspeak!] pra mas intimate. Ayoko ng masyadong malaking church tpos ang daming vacant seats. haha Kaso hirap mghanap ng mgndang venue around tagaytay na pasok sa budget. Any suggestion po?

Thank you!  :)

Hello!
I'm a newbie and this is my very first post haha

Also a 2020 (OFW) bride so nakakastress that I can't do anything but read and read muna.

Just to share...we're eyeing for Sitio Elena as our reception, and PIHM for the church.
I first considered seeking full coord service, kaso uncertain ako sa kalalabasan, though makakamura sana kami. Right now, we might just get an OTD coord, at si Events by Thoffy siguro cos their rates
are reasonable.

How about you ladies? Ano-ano na mga decisions nyo by this time?
Title: Re: 2020 Brides
Post by: red_yesha on February 02, 2019, 08:39:35 am
^hirap sis mag start noh? Anong month wed mo sis? PIHM din ako hehe.Nakapag pa reserved palang kami ng date. Kinabahan kasi ako, punuan daw. Nagulat nga ako meron ng nagpareserved for May 2020  hehe.
Hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin kami makapag decide sa reception, otd, caterer. Feeling ko dapat yan ang unahin.
Title: Re: 2020 Brides
Post by: jaaaaaaas on February 04, 2019, 07:13:54 am
I also initially wanted PIHM, but halos lahat ng weekend ng 2020 booked na, except yung mga months na tag-ulan. For reception, we might Get Fernwood Gardens antipolo.  :)

Sis, August pa ako haha I panicked kasi ang gusto ko talaga date (August 8) was booked na! Even sa Sitio Elena. So I had to beg for my family to go and reserve for me (ibang date na nga lang but still August).

Luckily, they went last Sunday so nakakuha sila good deal with Sitio Elena and they were able to try the food of Hizon's Catering. At first, gusto ko si K by Cunanan because of the good reviews here. Pero sobra kasi laki ng price difference with Hizon's, e happy naman family ko sa food nila so baka we'll go for Hizon's.

Hi, newbie here. :)

Getting married on November 2020. And I am really torn between three venues.

Checked Marriott two weeks ago and was somehow dissatisfied. I inquired with Manila Pen and Shangri-la Fort. We are keen on booking Manila Pen but I have read some very bad reviews about the staff and their service.

Any bride here that booked one of those venues? I would really appreciate your feedback :)

Want to follow this thread. We're getting married in Baguio and we've already booked church, venue, event coordinator, photographer and videographer.
It felt like such a daunting task at first. I felt such anxiety just thinking about the planning but once we booked the church, reception venue and our event coordinator, I felt much more at ease.
Since we're Manila-based, we decided to do full coordination with our coordinator.

Currently on the look out for wedding gown and make up artist.

And the next time i'l be back is a month prior to our big day na.  Any suggestions or tips you can give me po on what other things ang I can settle na as early as now? Also has anyone here tried the venue just behind the Mt. Carmel church? Yung Mark Horan Hall po? Kasi baka yun ang kunin namin para walking distance lang sa church.

Hello sis shyanne88, congratulations on your engagement. Mauuna pala kayo samen. Kame kasi 3rdquarter pa.

As early as that nagbook na kame ng caterer, church, reception, photog, videographer and hmua.

Natutunan ko kasi here na mas maaga mas ok as long as sure kana sa option mo para maprice lock mo yung mga services nila. Also para mablock mo na  yung service nila sa date na yun lalo na kung indemand yung supplier na kukunin mo.

Tho in my experience nagtatanong yung ibang suppliers kung kelan kasal then pag nagsend sila ng rates/packages nila iba yung rate nila for this year and next year.

And sis tip ko lang, wag ka padalos dalos sa pagbook pala haha ako kasi naexcite magbook tas nagdown tho maliit na amount lang naman yun tas porke marami pang time nagbrowse browse may nakitang better palit supplier. Hahaha payo tuloy ni h2b ko iblock na yung ibang supplier pag booked na 😂

Thanks sa info and tips sis. I got busy and just checked here. So far caterer, church, venue at hmua ang nareserve na nmin, problem is, yun nga andaming magaganda na lumalabas sa searches kasi naman kahit nkabook na pag nagbbrowse I cant help but look on other suppliers padin haha, kaso di na basta pwede magpalit lalo na pag nkapagreserve na omg. sayang din yun, especially nagset kmi ng budget for it para di kmi ngumanga after the wedding hehe ;)

Hello Everyone!

November 2020 bride here :)

My fiance and I are both based in California and we're planning to have our wedding in Manila.  Anyone here familiar with Kiss the Girl Events? Are they good? any good reviews about them? I saw their instagram account and so far, all I see are good reviews but of course it's their ig account..I asked my friends in manila and they are not familiar (or never heard)...I badly need a coordinator/planner, someone who can also help me conceptualize since I'm not very creative! How about La belle? Or Events by Thoffy?

HELP!

haven't booked any supplier yet, except for Nelwin Uy!!

Sis,
        If you've booked na with Nelwin Uy, maybe you can ask him for a reco for coordinator.
Or if you have a venue na and caterer in mind, you can ask them for coords they have worked with.  Yun yung 2 main items that we looked for sa coordinator namin kasi yun  yung masakit sa ulo if mag ka problems on the day itself kaya you need a coordinator that has experience dealing with your venue and your caterer. Where are you planning to have your wedding? In manila lang ba or out of town?

Hi Shaynne88 and everyone,

Replying here from a groom's perspective. I hope you don't find it weird that a guy is replying in a female forum like this, but truth be told, this forum was our source of reviews of wedding suppliers when we were planning our wedding a year ago. I was also based overseas at the time when we were doing the preps so I get where you are coming from.

Anyway, what I learned from our own experience is that wedding planning stress can be managed if you plan on mini-milestones ahead of time. At the time of our preparations, I have made our own version of wedding planning checklist which I have shared for free in my blog.

https://thehandsongroom.com/free-wedding-planning-checklist/

I hope it can help you. Enjoy the preps!

Regards,

Laurence

If you have a budget for Kiss The Girl, that is perfect. I have heard good feedback about them from my friends. You can also check other coordinators, which I can recommend, in my blog.

https://thehandsongroom.com/wedding-coordinators-in-the-philippines/

Our coordinator was The Wedding Project Philippines (TWP).

I have also provided in my blog some other suppliers which we considered during our wedding preps. I hope it can help you  :D

(After I booked!!!) Huhu! So far we?ve booked the church, reception, P/V. Anyone else having praning moments bec of one bad review?

Congratulations on your engagement, ladies!
Looking back on my wedding preps, I guess if you can afford it, i-go niyo na lahat ng dream pegs and wedding wishes ninyo. Dati kasi tipid tipid mode ako (even if I had the money). Looking back, I should have just went ahead and booked or got the supplier / item I really wanted rather than think about longingly now.

Enjoy the planning, sissies and future brides! :)

Hi everyone! I got engaged October 2018 and me and the fiance both agreed to have a long engagement. Our wedding is on June 2020 (falling into the 12 months-to-go preps time soon!)

I have booked almost all of the suppliers because we tried to have their 2018/2019 rates as much as possible. Being an overseas bride, this forum helped me a lot (w@wies didn't accept my request to be a member because they thought I'm a supplier daw when I just take photos as a hobby :P) so almost all of the info I got is from reading the forums here and pieces of advice from my cousin who got married in 2016.

I'm so excited! Happy preps to us all!!!  ;)

I'm already in talks with the hotel we prefer and once we sign the contract, go na din kami sa Photographer, Videographer and Coordinator.. hehe all waiting na lang sa confirmation ng date and venue :D

Did you get June 20, 2020? We have the same date if yes! Perfect date because ang ganda ng numbers and it's on a Saturday as well :) But our is not a destination wedding so sa Manila lang kami  ;D Hope you get the date and venue!

I read somewhere na if you are concerned about a negative feedback, it will be wise if you mention that to your supplier, in this case Conrad, na may negative comments about the food. This way you can raise the concern to them and check if they can do antything about the problem before your big day. Catering is not cheap so I don't think they'll take it bad on you if you just mention it to them na may worry ka sa quality ng food.  :)

Yes you need a downpayment when booking your suppliers. Ask your suppliers kung how much is their downpayment so you could setup a budget.

Hi, December 2020 bride here!  :)

I know  it could be a little early, but I am now checking/narrowing down options for our wedding day. Just wanted to ask you guys if any of you have attended a single-venue wedding? Fiance and I have different religious beliefs and would like to have a civil ceremony instead of the traditional one. We are planning to have a single venue wedding, probably having the ceremony first then flipping the venue for the reception during cocktail hours.

May I know if possible kaya yun or if you guys know any caterer/event stylist who can do this? Budget by the way is 350,000 for a Metro Manila Wedding and for less than a hundred guests since we really want it to be intimate.

Hey kthflores,

I just attended a wedding last week and Ms. Ayie of Imbitado Events was the wedding host. Good choice! I've heard positive reviews about her but my wife and I were hesitant to get a planner with add-on hosting. In our case, we hired a separate host (JC Alelis). But I must say that experiencing Ayie's hosting last week made me think that it's also practical to get a 2-in-1 wedding planner. So your wedding would surely be in great hands with Ms. Ayie :) She was really funny.

I have started blogging about our wedding preps before as well at www.thehandsongroom.com I hope you can get something valuable from my blog too. Happy preps!

Cheers,

Lau

That's very nice to hear something positive for Ms. Ayie's hosting style! Very practical talaga, yes, because her hosting is just an additional P5000 to the whole package so we didn't think twice in booking her 😄 I found it less stressful also na I just have to talk to one person for the programme. at least we're sure na alam talaga ng host kaming dalawa and ang event since she's also behind the coordinating team.

Dec 2020 bride here, as well! And with the same budget! :D

We're limiting our guests to 50 pax, and I've seen packages of around 200k inclusive of food, venue, P/V, and HMUA. So far, well below our budget ang projected expenses (I've asked numerous suppliers na din).

We're making tipid na lang sa wedding dress (masama loob ko magspend ng more than 10,000 sa gown na isang beses lang susuotin lol) and other stuff.

As for the venue, I've seen a church wedding na ang seating nya, sa tables na. So after the ceremony, diretso program and food. You might want to consider that kind of set-up.

I was able to get a weekend slot at PIHM. May nagbackout so I grabbed it. So happy! My theme is rustic garden, and gusto ko simple lang lahat.
I am also a wedding supplier so mejo madali na yung selection of choices for me.  I' choosing those whom Ive worked with na.

Right now I am looking for a affordable reception venues: Here are my choices and some on my shortlist:
L' Aquinium - good package with catering
Firefly Ridge - perfect place for a garden setup, though hindi pa fully constructed yung place. It's  1 minute away from the venue.
Jardin de Marimar - nice garden, I'm just not excited over the corkage on photographers and coordinators.
Mango Farm - nice, but too expensive for me, considering mejo malayo na sya sa ceremony venue

Anyone attending the Weddings & Beyond Bridal fair this weekend? I used to participate in expos like this. Now, I'm a bride! :)

Hello Everyone!

November 2020 bride here :)

My fiance and I are both based in California and we're planning to have our wedding in Manila.  Anyone here familiar with Kiss the Girl Events? Are they good? any good reviews about them? I saw their instagram account and so far, all I see are good reviews but of course it's their ig account..I asked my friends in manila and they are not familiar (or never heard)...I badly need a coordinator/planner, someone who can also help me conceptualize since I'm not very creative! How about La belle? Or Events by Thoffy?

haven't booked any supplier yet, except for Nelwin Uy!!

I'd go with Thoffy! Worked with him and he's awesome!

June 2020 bride here! 10 months to go!

We're booked in St. James the Great Alabang for the ceremony and Palazzo Verde for the reception. Almost all major and minor suppliers nabook na namin kasi medyo excited ako from engagement in 2018. 😅

Anyone attended a reception in Palazzo Verde recently? Meron parin bang complaints about sounds/ music na rinig from one half of the area to the another? Yun kasi nabasa ko na negative about the venue, na rinig daw ang events from the next area. 🥺

Also thinking about getting add-on string lights (the bigger outdoors-y lights) for design pero ang mahal ng mga quotation ng suppliers. So baka magdiscuss nalang kami ng design upgrade with Josiah's Catering.

Happy preps!

Hi, GT Brides!
I was once in one of these threads, sa 2014 Brides, hihi. Now it is my time to return as a wedding supplier this time. :-*

Mga sis, if you're looking for someone to write you spoken word poetry, a narrative for your Save The Date videos, or for your SDEs, or content writing for your invitations, I am offering my services at an affordable rate. I am a writer and a performance poet (spoken word poet), and I currently accept requests such as those I mentioned above.

Yung ibang clients ko for weddings, usually ang pinapagawa ay spoken word poetry tapos they record it and submit it sa Photo and Video suppliers to include in their Save The Date vids or SDEs as voice overs. For any inquiries, you can email me at mermaidzeli@gmail.com or message me here or in FB.

Here's one of the love poems I wrote for reference:
https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fyoutu.be%2FxKdhhHCAGB0%3Ffbclid%3DIwAR0uQhMxqf5OWMhLwLSliG9vHh2yLQIVw2Nx5DkjfRlic6EZdCf322tGBII&h=AT0y4zMi98f58Lshbr4ZIKdLiKchnRqdUL8mP4IHzVPz5ywaGb2kVEMeFwRFkqu00GULYxHN6uGuRb_IFWYgbg2-yAw725ZZyVZpbJrj-dgv39P58V4IzTQ4oe6Kd8RAdpWKGQwZ43mda4Y

I have lots of written prose and poems din on my FB account, feel free to read, those are in public under Dzeli Del Mundo.♡ I'd be happy to be part of your Bride journey! Thankies, mga sis! :-*

Pano ba mag plan without being a bridezilla haha. Simple lang kasi ako but my family is expecting much from me. Gusto church wedding & invited lahat. Kung ako lang masusunod, I prefer civil (garden) wedding with only 30-40 guests. Sa food na lang itodo ang budget. I want Cibo di M (by Margarita Fores) and Naked Patisserie. Tsaka wedding singer. And that?s it. Pwede na sila umuwi after 2 hours. Haha.

Foreigner kasi si bf and alam nyo naman culture natin sa Pinas porket puti ang jowa yayamanin. Humility aside, we have a budget for everything pero I was raised poor and so I?m frugal. Ayoko ng 500k spending in 1 day. Siguro max na yung 200k for 30-40 guests. Since we?re not based in the Philippines anymore iniisip ko naman bongga na lang yung wedding parang family reunion na rin pero most of those family members hindi ko naman nakakausap na. So what should a girl do? 😅

^Your wedding your rules. Kayo ni future hubby dapat masunod since kayo ang gagastos sa kasal ninyo. Siguro set a separate simple party nalang para sa hindi invited before or after your actual wedding. That?s what my cousin did nung kasal niya.
They can?t invite everyone since mahal ang per head ng catering service na kinuha nila and may budget din sila na sinusunod. Kaya they set a separate simple party nalang na kainan lang, yun lang naman gusto ng mga nagpipilit mainvite, yung makakain ng libre. Sorry pero sa totoo lang yung mga di mo naman ka-close eat and run lang ang ganap niyan.

I agree with mysterioza_me. Don't give in to pressure. The planning process should be fun (perhaps with manageable stress). It can be stressful lang naman when you'd opt for something na 1.) di achievable talaga with your circumstances (for example, sourcing in PH or also budget) and 2.)  not enough help from your partner and friends. So I guess, wag mong solohin haha ask your partner or assign him some responsibilities din. By doing that, you'll get to know him better pa.

You can also visit my blog at www.thehandsongroom.com I hope you can get some tips in planning your wedding.

Happy preps!

Sobrang nice pala Rosa Clara gowns. My heart skipped a beat kahit online ko lang makita. Sobrang maharlika lang ata

Minsan napapaisip ako if it?s really worth it to spend atleast 200k? a gown for a one day event. Kasi kahit ibenta mo sya half the price after your wedding sino bibili used gown for 100k.

^ We impulsively booked Juan Carlo pero we switched to KbyCunanan after our food tasting. Almost same price sila pero mas nasarapan kami ng bongga sa foods ni KbyC. Not to mention yung styling din na bet ko is forte din ni KbyC (minimalist greenery). So, you might want to check them before deciding with Juan Carlo.

Hi! I need help!
We have 5 months until the wedding, kaso wala pa ako nabobook na emcee. I wanted atom ungson sana, kaso booked na sya. Are there any other recommendations with similar style? Gusto ko yung natural lang ang eloquence, hindi exag kung mag enunciate. Medyo formal ang dating kase matatanda na ang guests namin, but can still hold everyone's attention. Preferably male, pero pwede din naman female kung mas magaling :-)

Yep sis ganyan talaga and more pa depending on the Church.  We were both based abroad different countries pa kaya nakakakaloka talaga.
Cenomar we ordered sa NSO online.

Yung Baptismal Certificate and Marriage Banns I asked my Brother and Dad to collect and submit for me.

Di pa ko Confirmed so I had to get confirmed pa sa Manila.  Got the Confirmation Certificate that same day.  I went to one of the church na every Thursday may Confirmation, be sure to bring at least a pair of ninong and ninang.

Cedula I got while nasa Manila pa.

Yung Marriage License no choice ka both of you have to be present during the application process sa City Hall pero yung document pina pick-up ko na lang sa Dad ko after na release.
 
Yung Family planning seminar you don't have to get if you are over 30 years na ata else, you can do this sa mismong City hall the same day na nag file ka ng marriage license check mo lang kung may sched that day.

Yung Pre-cana (Discovery Weekend Seminar) naman we had to fly to Cebu kasi yung sa Manila hindi na namin naabutan.  You have to book this months ahead kasi mabilis sya mapuno.

Canonical interview with our priest we scheduled 2 days ata before our wedding na.  We flew 5 days early before the wedding to do the last minute preps pa kasi its a destination wedding.

Bridal Gown hunting I would suggest at least a year early or more.  Some designers prefer advanced booking as they limit the number of orders and customer they accommodate to ensure quality.

1. There was no written contract
2. We were unaware that any payment made 1 year before the event is forfeited because there was no contract
3. NO SERVICE HAS BEEN RENDERED YET

I just want to share this. Actually my friend's experience at her wedding last Saturday. I cannot believe that this really happen. I don't know if there was same experience.

My friend book San Roque Cathedral few months before their wedding. The church changed theur schedule without informing them because they have an inmportant event which will be attended by 2 bishops. Imagine from 9am wedding, they moved it to 8am without telling the couple. To think they visited the parish office a week before their wedding to check everything is ok as advused by their coordinator.

Ang sabi ng friend ko, minadali daw ang lahat dahil late na daw sila. Actually nalaman lang nya problem, after their wedding na. Kaya daw pala hindi nai-play ang gusto nyang bridal march song because the church refused dahil late daw sila. Where in fact, 9am ang alam nila dahil wala nagsabi sa kanila beforehand na moved sila to 8am.

Ending, nag-start daw agad pagdating ng friend ko sa church (my friend is the bride). It was around 8:20am. Dahil maaga daw talaga magpa-alis ng hotel ang coord nya. Medyo nagulat sya. And parang ayaw nya na daw mag-march nung hindi yung gusto nya na song ang narinig nya, pero nag-open na ang door, wala na sya magawa. Lahat stressed dahil sa ginawa ng church, the coord, the photog, the groom. 3 ninangs wasn't able to march and asking kung late na daw ba sila. Muntik na hindi payagan ang photo-ops inside the church because they need to exit the church at 9am, but the church gave 15 minutes for photo-ops.

The church insist that the next event is "far more important than a wedding" daw. Overheard by the groom. The caterer was also stressed because the guests arrived early before they finished their set-up. Buti na lang daw the wedding is smooth except this. Pagkakamali ng church sa scheduling pero sila pa ang dapat mag-give way. Hayy!

Ang ganda ng church na yan, malapit dating house namin dyan kaya madalas dyan kami magchurch dati. Nakaka-sad nangyari sa friend mo. Yun pa naman ang highlight at pangarap ng babae, yung wedding march kasabay ng wedding song na pinili niya. Yung ibang girls nga bata pa lang may napili ng song para sa bridal march nila (maski wala pang bf or manliligaw man lang).

^Welcome to the club Sis.  ;) Basta enjoy mo lang preps. The earlier to start the better. Ang advise sa akin noon ng coordinator turned friend ko, start to set your wedding date, schedule the church and reception venue then from there, tuloy-tuloy na. Mas madali daw kasi makipag-comminicate sa mga suppliers if may specific date for your wedding ka na.

Then if ok na sa wedding date, set your priority suppliers to book. Like caterer, p/v, coordinator much better if mag-book ka ng coord earlier (kahit OTD lang kunin mo) para utilized mo ng bongga yung online consultations nila (which sa case ko malaking tulong talaga advise nila). Yun lang. Congrats sa inyo Sis.

Would recommend Mango Farm. Madali sila kausap. Medyo limited lang accredited caterers nila though (Hizon's, Josiah's and KbyC), but your chosen caterer might be willing to pay their corkage fee.  What I liked best is that solo nyo yung place for a full 7 hrs, and if there's no event the next day, they don't mind you extending. So we actually extend our photo ops after the reception para hindi matagal waiting time ng guests between ceremony & reception.

October 2020 bride here.

Got engaged last June 2019 and the first thing I did was to book suppliers particularly the major ones like the photo/videographers as they tend to get booked by -ber months. We also booked the venue/caterer and since we?re having a civil wedding, we didn?t have a problem with securing the venue as the ceremony and reception will take place there.

However, my only regret is that I should not have been impulsive when it came to booking the venue coz now 11mos away from the wedding and I wanted to change the venue from an events place to a garden wedding.

I saw The Mango Farm and fell completely inlove with their place and the ironic thing is its just a few kilometer from my fianc??s place.

Sadly, I cannot push for a garden wedding anymore since we have already made the deposit with the venue and caterer.

Lesson: Think first before making a confirmation lest you end up regretting like me. 🤦🏼‍♀️

Following this thread. Sa totoo lang, sumasakit na ulo ko pag nagtatanong ako ng Venue and church rates..

We're not after super bonggang wedding. We just want it to be simple and memorable. We are practical and we don't want to splurge for just a one day event.

Kaso lang sumasakit na ulo ko sa kakahanap ng suppliers. I have seen a lot of all-in wedding packages na 80-100k lang. Ok na samin yun since hindi naman ako particular sa mga photo & video, invitations, florist, stylist, souvenirs, etc. but the venue and church rates, dun kami nahihirapan..

Yung church, my parish in Makati is actually offering the wedding ceremony for free. However, ang mahal ng venues sa Makati. May nakita naman akong church sa qc around 13,500 but again, wala pa kaming makita na affordable reception venue. 😭

Help mga sis. Baka may alam kayong affordable venues, mga less than 20k lang sana.

We initially thought 300k is enough since it's going to be a small celebration, but with how I'm estimating the budget, umaabot ng 400k? Is this normal? Is it normal to get 100k for wedding styling alone?

I'm surprised lang kasi I thought malaki matitipid namin since we really limited the guests to 70. Anyone else here who had a small intimate wedding who's willing to share her thoughts? :) Thank you!

Hi everyone, Any antipolo brides to be here? I'm getting married on April 4 2020,

I was able to get a weekend slot at PIHM. May nagbackout so I grabbed it. So happy! My theme is rustic garden, and gusto ko simple lang lahat.
I am also a wedding supplier so mejo madali na yung selection of choices for me.  I' choosing those whom Ive worked with na.

Right now I am looking for a affordable reception venues: Here are my choices and some on my shortlist:
L' Aquinium - good package with catering
Firefly Ridge - perfect place for a garden setup, though hindi pa fully constructed yung place. It's  1 minute away from the venue.
Jardin de Marimar - nice garden, I'm just not excited over the corkage on photographers and coordinators.
Mango Farm - nice, but too expensive for me, considering mejo malayo na sya sa ceremony venue

Anyone attending the Weddings & Beyond Bridal fair this weekend? I used to participate in expos like this. Now, I'm a bride! :)

Good luck to us!

Hello sis taga antipolo po ako pero sa Cainta wedding ko Emperor events place. March naman wedding ko. sa option mo sis mas bet ko si L' Aquinium maganda place nila at very garden ang reception isa din yan sa options ko before :)

Depende sa peg mo sis (peg sa styling/photo/video/caterer etc) pag kilala at magaling for sure mahal. samin kase 120pax ang paid namin sa caterer pero 100 pax lang talaga guests namin baka mas onti pa pumunta. magagastos namin all in (DIY) 250K sobra na yan. NO SDE video(ilang kami mag awra awra sa video  ;D) sa styling naman iisa supplier ko ng flowers sa ento at ceremony as in super simple lang ng peg ko parang basic styling ganun. tapos sa reception wala ng ceiling styling kase ok na kami sa ceiling nung venue since parang intimate wedding lang din peg namin. yung stage styling lang pinaupgrade namin sa caterer.

Hello! In my experience, wala atang ganyang venue especially sa Makati. I suggest to consider restaurants as reception place (example Max's) para kasama na yung place with the food costs.

We initially thought 300k is enough since it's going to be a small celebration, but with how I'm estimating the budget, umaabot ng 400k? Is this normal? Is it normal to get 100k for wedding styling alone?

YES. 100k is normal for styling. Yung mga magarbong styling costs almost 1M pa nga. My friend's wedding costs 250k for styling na medyo minimal pa nga kung tutuusin. Grabe. Food na yun ng guests namin nung kinasal kami.  :o

Even until now na malaki na sila bichesa pa rin sya although mabait sya sakin. Hubby wants to invite her and her family pero ayoko ng nega vibes on my special day especially civil wedding lang sya and 5 lang guests LOL so most likely I would need to talk / entertain her eh di ko talaga sya gusto ang bigat ng aura nya haaay.
Ang hirap na desisyon niyan sis pero kung ako maski mahirap for me iinvite ko pa din kasi 2 lang sila magkapatid. Ayaw mo naman siguro na magkatampuhan sila magkapatid. Remember nagiisa siyang kapatid di man lang siya nainvite sa kasal ng only brother niya. Kung sayo yun gagawin ayaw mo din siguro di ba.

Hi future brides. 2021 bride here. Anyone here booked at Palacio De Maynila? We are considering to sign with them but I'm a bit hesitant because of the very bare draped ceiling. Parang need pa sya i-style and I'm worried that getting additional styling will take up huge amount of our budget.

Hello sis! I definitely agree with you! We have the same 'plans'. 70-80 pax, intimate and solemn, tapos garden christian wedding. Nag gawa kami ng excel file na nakaindicate ang estimate amount according sa research namin and guess what? Umabot ng 460,000 for an 80pax garden wedding celeb!!!

BF and I's also eyeing for Q4 2021 wedding (his parents kasi nasa US so we have to wait). Super tagal pa nung samin pero we are already listing down possible suppliers na preferred namin ang style. Para pag 100% may green light na, di na kami mahirapan mag research and scout. :D BTW we're not even engaged yet! But wedding is already in the talks like BUDGET, WHEN and WHERE hehe!

Hi. 2020 bride here around -ber months pa ang wedding but as early as last year 2019 we booked our wedding suppliers to avail of their 2019 rates and discounts (if booked sa fair)

In my experience, it is better to book ahead so as to save yourself the hassle and stress. For us, we book first the ceremony and reception venue and caterer, the photographer and videographer next.

Depende sa budget, it?s important that you and h2b talk about it so as not to overspend in booking your suppliers.

Know what are your non-negotiables like for us it was the food so we booked a reputable caterer. Next non-negotiable is the photo and video. Why? Kasi after ng kasal yung photo and video na lang yung maiiwan mong souvenir so make sure you find a good one,

Next I book my coordinator. Yes, nauna [textspeak!] mga non-negotiables ko nabook bagonsa coord hahaha! Depende sayo kung gano ka kahands on, but I book a coord for semi-coord lang, may pagka OC kasi ako so gusto ko ako pa din ang nakikiusap sa supplier. madami coord pero pinili ko yung makakasundo at magaan katrabaho. Siya pa mismo ang nagpunta sakin to meet, hindi halfway or hindi ako nagsadya na puntahan siya. Dun pa lang, feel good na ako sa kanya.

Sa event stylist I had a particular stylist in mind, whimsical and new perspective ang concept nya. Ayaw kasi namin ni h2b ang super oa na set up and I feel na yung event stylist na nakuha will do just that. Around 100k yung quote niya but lahat ng peg ko nandun, nagcucustomized siya depende sa flowers and design na gusto mo unlike sa iba na fixed rates na.


Sa ceremony lang yung styling niya, the caterer has an event styling offered for the reception. Sa pag attend ko kasi ng mga wedding narealize ko na hindi gaano papansin ng mga guests yung design ng lugar, mas maalalala nila if masarap ba yung pagkain o hindi. 

in so far as major suppliers are concerned yan ang mga inuna namin sila din kasi ang pinaka mahal na babayaran. Hahaha!

Hello! New user here. Jan 2021 pa naman yung wedding ko in tagaytay, but Im already feeling the pressure. 😥 i got a full coordinator kaso my problem is lahat yata ng sinuggest nia na suppliers ay mahal? Her first choice for the event stylist is worth 750k! The next ones are cheaper but still steep! Any recommendation for tagaytay based stylists worth 100-200k max for church, venue and bouquet? Or ganun na talaga ba presyuhan ngayon?

Post by: winkar22 on February 14, 2020, 02:37:27 am
^ About sa stylist, it will depend kasi on your pegs. Kung bongga yung styling that you want, 500k++ talaga sya aabutin. My brother hired Amelia Blossoms for their wedding. 200k ang quote sa kanila for their wedding in Tagaytay. Minimalist pa yung peg nila nyan.
Title: Re: 2020 Brides
Post by: Sugarpitch on February 14, 2020, 09:58:23 am
Hey thanks! I'll try to contact Amelia Blossoms. Actually, Rustic Minimalist din gusto namin ni h2b. Very light ceiling treatment, simple flowers. For the church, I only wanted pink and peach baby's breath with some lamps. Kaya sobrang nasindak ako sa price when the stylist quoted it to me, though it was already all in daw.

I highly recommend KbyCunanan. Not sure about their current rates but when I got them at around 1145/head during our 2018 wedding. Btw, I booked them 2017. So maybe this will give you an idea how much sila.

For me sulit sila kasi masarap ang food and kung minimalist ang styling na peg mo, pwede nila achieve without any add-on cost.

actually inaantay ko lang din email nila since friday pa ko nag message. hopefully sila makuha ko. since based ako abroad I fear na di maging sulit yung food.

anyways, thank you so much

OMG same! Silent lurker here but due to quarantine, my bf has been very serious about getting married next year! We've been asking suppliers for their rates and medyo hiya ako to ask since we also are not yet engaged. Our budget is 300k lang pero with an estimate of 150pax hindi kakayanin. We narrowed down to 75pax pero overbudget pa rin!

Anyway, bukod sa Marriage License [textspeak!]-ano pa ang mga need kunin?
Sa ngayon, ang alam ko pa lang na need kunin ulit ay Marriage License, Brgy Cert (for MLicense).
E yung ibang docs aside from the aformentioned above? Or depende sa church?
Sa tingin nyo anong month pinaka safe imoved ulit? Jan 2021?

We were supposed to have our civil wedding last Mar27 sa Phil Embassy here in SG. Moved to April 3 kasi sabi sa akin ng taga-Embassy, H2B needs to quarantine for 14 days dahil galing ng pinas. His arrival date to the date of our wedding is 2 days short for the required 14 days quarantine. So we have to move to April 3. Every Friday lang ang wedding solemnisation sa Embassy. 2 days after I received the call that we need to move the wedding, I received an email that all wedding solemnisation at the Embassy starting Mar23 onwards are suspended until further notice. Kakaloka. Naghihintay pa din kami hanggang ngayon

Naiiyak na nga ako kahapon kasi mukhang walang chance na makasal talaga kami dito sa SG kasi extended ang lockdown until June 1. Hindi ko alam kung mapapa-extend ko pa stay ni H2B until mid June. Huhuhu

Hi everyone, sadly this thread is not as active. I just got engaged on March tapos agad na quarantine dahil sa Covid so started to plan my wedding.
Wala pa kami date bec can't finalize everything.

Gumawa nalang ako ng venue comparison chart wherein considering all cost, potential number of guests and caterer, and hotels nearby (kami [textspeak!] magbabayad sa overnight for some non negotiable guests like immediate fam and wedding entourage).

Looking into our mindanao, bohol, tagaytay or baguio na wedding.

Kala ko pa maaga na ako nagplan pero based sa stories nyo parang late na. Haha

Hope we could help each other!

Btw, K by Cunanan looks and feels promising based on their professional response and reviews i've read here and on fb :)

Hello 2020 brides!

I'm supposed to be a June 2020 bride and we've been planning our wedding since 2018.. Sobrang heart ache ko sa reality na we cannot proceed with our original wedding date.. All of our rings, arrhae/ ring glass case, robe, his coat have our wedding dates na (engraved/ embroidered).. and I have completed our wedding invites (DIY bride kasi!) since Feb 2020..

We have rescheduled to November 2020 because we wanted sana to have it before the year ends.. When we were rebooking and talking to our suppliers in April 2020, we thought November 2020 is safe(r) na, pero with how things are working out in the PH, mukang medyo mahirap pa maclear ang last quarter of the year..

Hay :'(

Hi mga sis! After some months ng pagdedecide if i-push ba namin this year or not, eto na nga na push namin ❤️ originally ang wedding date  namin is April 2020 but we moved it to July 2020.
Parang ayaw pa sana namin ipush kasi canceled ang flight ng fam ni hubby due to Covid-19 😢
Kaso kailangan din naman isaalang-alang ang expiration ng Marriage License namin. Nahassle-an kaming kumuha ulit ng requirements.
Salamat sa Diyos dahil naging successful ang wedding. Lakas maka wedding high kahit di gaano karami ang guests.

For those na nawawalan ng hope or nadidiscourage sa wedding planning, don't. I guess may right time for everything, and asa inyo naman yan ni Fiance ano ang pinaka-important sa wedding niyo.

Share ko lang din, in our case, we discussed this too many times. Haha! Pero samin kasi mas nagmamatter na ikasal na kami, so we decided to push through whether it is a 10pax or 100pax guest list.  So yun, still a January 2021 bride here! :) mas tedious ng konti ang wedding planning, but sure akong worth it lahat nang stress come my wedding day, and yung life after the wedding namin ni H2B. :)

*sending virtual hugs to 2020 brides*

Our original wedding date was Apr 2020. One year din kami nag prepare. Sobra yung heartbreak ko non pag naalala ko hahah grabe kasi yung wala assurance kung kailan ulit pwede, e medyo hands on pa naman ako non :(

Nung unang GCQ, we decided to push thru sa wedding bago man lang magexpire yung license namin. Thank God tinanggap kami nung church na malapit samin (hindi din ito yung original booked church namin). Only 10 people were allowed inside the church, included na si bride and groom. We only had a week to prepare ulit. I bought a simple dress from shopee, worth less than Php500. Buti nagkasya hahah. Yung brother ko na lang din naging photographer namin. Nagpaayos parin ako sa HMUA ko. I had a faux bouquet na buti napagawa ko na before pa maglockdown nung March. Kami yung unang couple na kinasal dun sa church during quarantine. Ang tagal ko pa makapasok sa door kasi mataas yung temp ko hahah ang init sa labas (11am slot namin). Since limited lang yung pwede sa loob, yung mga sakristan yung naging church coordinator. Sila na namili pati mga songs heheh. Everything was memorable. May mga bloopers pa ko don at buti pala wala video hahah! Hindi pa pwede yung mga dine-in that time, so dun lang kami sa bahay kumain. Masaya parin yung nanyare. Kinikilig parin ako pag naaalala ko.

As for the celebration with complete family and friends, sana next year pwede na :) Hindi din kasi nakauwi yung dad and sister ko from US. And since tapos na kami sa church wedding, pwede na kami sa garden wedding pero parang renewal of vows na lang ito.

Naka hold lang din pala yung payment sa mga original suppliers namin basta sabihan ko lang sila pag ready na ulit next year :)

Have been eyeing them for our photo.
It's just that wala kasi kami makita reviews on their FB page. yung catalog din nila is more on overseas clients and celebrities.
We have inquired of their rates and found that they have 2 packages you can choose from: MangoRed (w/ 1 lead photographer) and MangoRed Slices (trained senior photographers).
Hoping to get feedback on their output sana esp on the 2 packages mentioned before we book them.

Kumusta yung mga brides here? End of 2021 na, pero still covid is prevalent. Ang hirap magPlan. We had our civil wedding before first lockdown nung 2020, and planned to get church wedding after a year. Pero dahil sa circumstances, we already moved our church wedding plan around first quarter of 2023. But we haven't finalized everything due to the pandemic, pero we will push with 2023 na. Keri kaya ang one year preparation? We want to keep it simple sana, ang budget namin hanggang 500k lang talaga, sagad na yun. Pero sa nababasa ko, ang hirap magbudget.
