Sis Caprice: I wish for a wedding as intimate as yours.
I myself am gunning for 60 people max na invited. I plan for it na maging adult party (Ayoko to have kids running around and crying). I'm planning to do it abroad para sure na yung mga close ko lang talaga and family ang makapunta =)

if you are planning to go abroad on your wedding mas maganda..lalo yung set up ng weddings sa US..sobrang simple yet maganda...yung mga pics sa intimate weddings>real weddings grabe ang konti lang ng bisita tapos sobrang ganda ng ambiance ng set up..very romantic :)

Hi sis. Ganyan din ang wedding ko last 2007.
Super simple kasi madalian lang din.
Malapit lang yung church dito samin and yung reception sa Max. Saktong 30 persons pa nga. 2 sets of ninong and ninang.
Yung gown ko naman, I just bought a ready made white gown sa divisoria. Kaso ako sis, nagwalk parin ako sa aisle. yun lang. Initially gusto ko nga wedding rites na agad, kaso yung priest nag insist na lagyan na nya ng konting ceremonyas. Mabilis lang lahat.
Yung souvenir naman nag burn lang kami ng fave songs namin and yun ang pinamigay.
Nung reception, kainan lang din talaga. Wala ng kahit ano.

So yun, akala ko ako lang ang merong ganung klaseng wedding, until I saw your post.

We enjoyed our wedding naman. Tipid pa.

Pero soon, were planning narin to have another wedding, Catholic pa kasi kami nun. We want to have a Christian wedding din. Pero wala pang date.

Best Wishes
"Trust and love God with all your heart, with all your mind and with all your soul."

i wouldn't call it a SIMPLE WEDDING kung lalagpas ka pa ng 30k.

my POV, pag sinabing simplest, intimate. immediate family members and close friends lang ang kasama. no entourage, no wedding gowns, no 30 and above number of guests, walang sangkatutak na sponsors.

naku sis, sa mahal ng bilihin nowadays.. wala naman atang catering na nagooffer ng 100/pax na meal.. hehe.. ceremony kasi matitipid mo talaga. pero kahit sabihin natin na immediate family lang, di din naman natin maiichapwera yung fact na kahit sila man lang pakainin natin ng medyo decent meals.. hehe.. kami ganun inital plan namin.. 60 guests.. 2 PS.. yung 60 na yun puro immediate family members from both sides..

now we are on 114 pero close na yun guest list.. small wedding pa din pero that includes the closest chosen friends up to the 1st degree ng family members.. may entou pero yung basic lang na veil, cord, candle then 1 moh and 1 bm, 1 bestman, 1 groomsman, 2 fg, 3 boys na bearer.. then 3 pairs ng PS.

we never planned it as simple naman talaga since the start. but we planned it to be small and intimate. ang sarap ng feeling na hindi magulo yun wedding.. lahat kayo close at magkakilala.. even our friends na pupunta dun. nacu wala pa yata silang 20, both set of friends na namin ni h2b..

i agree magastos magpakasal.. whichever way we want to do it, ang mahalaga eto na yung moment natin (lalo na tayong mga girls).. magiging misis na tayo.. hehe!  kalerkey!

Hindi naman ata sa budget lang nadedefine ang pagiging "simple" ng isang wedding. Ang pagiging simple naman yata eh subjective sa nakasanayan natin. =)

I would want to have a simple wedding too..I'm contemplating nga din magcivil wed na lang din kami ni partner (since we have 2 kids na already), tapos since I'm applying for their papers abroad, dito na lang kami ikakasal once andito na din sila. Still on the deciding note though, pero if sa pinas like ko sana intimate beach wedding talaga, but is it true na wala daw nagkakasal na pari sa beach wedding and catholics does not honor it? :(

Sis, it has to be a beach na there are no close enough parishes around, para payagan ng Catholic church. There are some places na pwede, but it's really if you can get a priest who will officiate...

caprice! This was how I planned my wedding originally too, and I know the feeling -- baka akala ng iba di namin afford kaya ganyan ang choices namin, pero sadya lahat! Haha. Will comment on some of your plans to add to the suggestions of everyone else. :)

1. Entourage - Naku hihirit talaga mga kamag-anak at kaibigan here. :) It's definitely your call if you don't want this, feeling ko for a simple wedding where the entourage won't have to do anything, parang formality lang na si ganito ang bridesmaids mo, si ganito ang ring bearer -- it's really to make certain guests feel special and part of your inner circle.

2. Walking down the aisle - I think you should try and do this, only for the photo op. :) I had a Christian ceremony in a library and we didn't have a traditional aisle... we kind of took over the hallway para may aisle kunwari. And it looks great sa pics. Hindi masyadong maganda yung maraming taong tabi-tabi, plus sayang ang moment. :P

3. I admire your guest list plans. We originally planned only 2 pairs of sponsors (mga tito at tita who would have been invited anyway) pero napagsabihan kaming hindi maganda ang 4 na sponsors so ayan, naging 8 tuloy.

4. Yes to RTW dress, but do find a nice one. :)

5. Kami rin we didn't prioritize video, but tuloy afterward, when we wanted to show the wedding to relatives who weren't able to come, we kind of wished na we had hired someone who could have given us a better edit. Pero di naman ito masyadong regret. If you're not hiring a photographer/videographer, try to encourage all your guests to take photos and collect them na lang. Ganyan ang ginawa namin instead of photobooth -- we collected all the photos taken by guests and put them in an online album. Those actually turned out nice, kasi iba-iba yung eye nila.

6. If di ka magco-coordinator, try to get 3 people to help you on the day. Divide the responsibilities among them and it won't be hard work for any. :) For me, ang "OTD" ko yung sister ko and 2 cousins. Sister was in charge of ceremony and reception program and music, cousin 1 in charge of ceremony, cousin 2 in charge of reception.

7. I got a Red Ribbon cake! 2K lang, delivered on the day, sort of close naman yung color to my motif so pwede na. :) It was yummy too.

8. We made our own invitations and souvenirs. Mej effort lang for 140 but for you this should be easy!

9. Wala rin kaming bridal car. If you're ever going to cross the street make sure you take pictures! Tumawid lang ako to my ceremony and aliw ang pics of bride crossing sa pedestrian lane, LOL.

10. Our ceremony (Christian, and we were told it was flexible) only had rings and vows. No veil, cord at candle. May arrhae and Bible but they weren't a major part of the ceremony. On time tuloy natapos! Haha.

I'm all for simple, intimate weddings, just be ready for the judgment! For me it came from everywhere, mga side comment here and there, but nagmatigas kami. No regrets at all!

in this particular thread however, budget matters...to quote the threadstarter:

"We got engaged 2 months ago and since we are nearing our 12th year, ayaw na namin patagalin pa. We are planning to get married on March this year. Initially, ok na kami sa civil wedding. Ayaw na namin gumastos pa sa malakihang celebration kasi hindi kami nakapag-ipon and mas priority namin na may pera kami once we are married. Kaso, ayaw pumayag ng mommy and brother ni bf. Church man lang daw kahit super simple. Si brother ni bf na lang daw ang sagot sa reception though simple rin lang. "

^sis i agree.  i was able to pull this off three months ago lang. 32k lang nagastos ko, all in. it would have been a lot less (like 25k or less pa) had i found a nice rtw dress na fit sa akin, e kaso wala, kaya had to make patahi na lang..so it is really not impossible na magka wedding church. sabi nga ni dr. love (hehe) na napanood ko sa teleradyo, kung talagang talagang talagang gusto mo ng basbas ng simbahan at talagang talagang talagang wala kang dinero, punta ka lang daw sa kanya at may irerefer syang pari. in the first place, wala naman daw dapat "cost" ito. ang nagpapalaki lang daw ng gastos ay yung mga unecessary expenses nga. :)

korek sis kurengkeng !! galing talaga yang si dr. love e.. true naman, it's the society actually that dictates what type of wedding you will have. e bakit ba sa US, tamang backyard wedding lang, OK na.. ang daming DIY stuffs..

Here satin, a lot of comments pa di pa nakakarating sa simbahan ang bride ha.. lalo pa pag natapos na pati reception.. sometimes it's hard to accept the fact na you are getting married AND you want to have a grand reception. parang mababaliw ka kakahanap ng pera kasi kailangan may buffet table, may tiffany chairs, may flowers per table, etc. Yung essence ng bakit ka ba talaga nagdecide magpakasal e natatabunan..

In any case, like what i have said, to each his own. Sabagay, kung may pera ba kami na madami bakit hindi sa Punta Fuego or sa Boracay ko ipa-fly mga guests ko then have the wedding there.. haha..

^kahit nga may pera ako, di ako gagastos ng malaki e.  specially sa panahon ngayon! katakot ;-)

lagi ko sinsasabi sa post ko yung narinig ko kay Anthony Pangilinan (diba nagpapaseminar sila about parenting, marriage eklavu)..ang dami na daw nyang napuntahan, at napag-host-an na mga engrandeng weddings...pero mabibilang daw nya sa daliri  yung mga nagtatagal..he said something like: he prays that people daw will give more preparation sa lifetime event called marriage than spend more than half of their savings sa engrandeng one day event called wedding. :)

but yes to each his own, kung carry mo go! pera mo yan e hehe

but i am proud of the threadstarter na  nakaisip na ang gusto lang nya ay SIMPLEST wedding lang. :)

i would agree with this.  kahit may pera, di kailangang gumastos ng todo :)
(although mine wouldn't be simple, because i am girl, i dreamt of all the shebang and lace and frills and, can i add, fireworks hihi--pero hindi ako gagastos ng ganung kalaki :) )

Wow sis, parehas tayo ng iniisip- pero sakin talagang immediate family lang. Max na 20pax- super dami pa nga un. No reception. Eat out lang- possibly kung saang hotel kami magbook. Right now priority ko canvassing for church and hotel.
baka you can give me tips din or share mga nacanvass mong church na may simple wedding packages.

^sis! try mo sa archbishop's palace, yung small chapel lang.
it's very swak na swak sa mga intimate small weddings.
2500 lang use of church.
sa mandaluyong ito.
had my 10th year civil wedding anniversary cum church wedding here 3 months ago.
15 pax lang kami lahat lahat, including 1 pair sponsors
ate at cabalen lunch buffet lang. hehe
