wow, so many replies! :)

Like the photographer, tama ka naman, not necessary and if you can borrow SLR camera na lang or you know a friend who atleast know how to shoot, invite him na lang. One sould to feed is OK naman if he can make good pictures for your event.  :D


my brother's bestfriend is a wedding photographer. lagi nga nya kaming kinukulit kung kelan nya kami kuhaan for prenup. kaso super busy nya ngayon. pag ininvite ko sya, obvious na gagawin ko syang photographer. nahihiya ako kasi sigurado di magpapabayad yun. ok lang, my father-in-law-to-be has 3 SLRs. hehe, adik. baka magtampo rin pag may ibang kukuha. i'm sure d nya palalampasin yung occasion.  ;D

^^ hi sis, if you must know hindi ka nag iisa dito. ginawa na rin ito ng friend ko.  the groom and my friend got married in the, as you said, 'the simplest wedding one can imagine'

oo nga sis, after reading some of the replies here, nabuhayan ako. di naman pala masyadong api magiging wedding ko.  :) besides, choice rin naman namin na wag na masyadong gumastos. :)

Ako naman ayaw ng parents ko ideas ko for a simple wedding, dismayado nga ako eh pero ayaw ko paring bumitaw sa idea ko, tutal kasal naman na kami sa Civil, bali ang gusto ko nalang gawin ay wedding renewal of vows nalang. Pero gusto ko sana na bigyan nyo ako ng mga ideas pa since ang gusto ko nalang imbitahan ay mga kamag anak nalang. Di ko alam san maganda gawin ang isang simple renewal of vows. Ano kaya sa palagay nyo? wala ng entourage pa para sa akin. Any ideas here girls? kung beach san maganda wag sobrang layo sa Manila. Kung rent nlang kaya sa Laguna ng private pool? magkano kaya mababang price, may suggestions ba kayo?

and guess what, the guy is the youngest son of the former mayor of our town. :) they have the resources kumbaga, pero they decided to have a simpler, more intimate wedding...

sis, ganito rin yung ikina-eemote ko minsan. kasi bf comes from a well-off family. older brothers nya bongga ang mga wedding celebration. tapos bunso rin sya. pero iniisip ko na lang, more than a decade nang retired parents nya. whatever money they have right now, para sa kanila na yun. baka mamaya e malaking chunk pala ang makukuha namin kung iinsist naming malakihang celebration din. at saka both working na naman kami ni bf so dapat di na kami umaasa sa kanila di ba...  :)

Actually practical talaga yung ganito.

yun na nga lang iniisip namin, sis. mas priority namin kasi ang ipon over the wedding. in fact, bibigyan kami ng sister nya ng money for the honeymoon. pero tinanong namin kung ok lang na isave na lang namin. para pwede rin kami mag-baby soon after the wedding.  :)

Hi sis. I had 2 pairs of principal sponsors + Maid of Honor and Best Man lang. MOH and BM did the cord candle shebang. ;)

But yes, eventually the number of people increased at my wedding. Ang kukulit ng pamilya. :P

Sa amin napagastos lang ng todo dahil sa parents namin eh..Minsan lang daw kami ikasal kaya gastusan na..Lalo na ang dad ko..haay

hehe, opposite naman parents namin. nung sinabi naming super simple at immediate family lang, sineryoso ang pagiging simple at wala rin silang sinabihang iba kahit kinukulit sila. at saka happy ako na hindi sila nagsasabi ng invite mo si ganito, si ganyan. though mama ko alam ko may times na sad din sya.

Super like ko toh sis!!!! napaka-intimate..napaka-solemn.. hinde naman na uso ang bonggang wedding sa hirap ng buhay ngayon.. ang importante, mabless kayo ni God di ba?

Oo nga sis, nakakatuwa..napaka intimate and solemn ng ganitong wedding. Ang important is you get married in the eyes of God with your family and close friends. Marriage after all is for you and your husband and hindi para sa ibang tao..At sa hirap ba naman ng buhay ngayon di ba?

dun ako natutuwa sa mommy and brother ni bf, maganda yung pangingialam nila. gusto talaga nila may blessing ni God kahit pa mapagastos sila.  :)

after nung vows nila, we were crying. nakaka-inspire... :)

naku, sis, sabi ko kay bf wag na kaming gumawa ng sarili naming vows. lugi ako, magaling sya magsulat! at saka magkandabuhul-buhol mga dila namin.  ;D

Simpleng ceremony lang. Then sa reception, konting pasasalamat lang. Kain. Then mag si uwian na sila lol

may nagtanong nga sa akin kanina kung ano gift namin sa mga ninong at ninang, sabi ko, pwede bang mag-take home na lang sila ng pagkain?  ;D

Sis, tama sila. If you can do some DIY stuff, mas memorable ang event. It doesn't have to be grand. More touching nga kasi talagang pinaghirapan nyo ang wedding na yan.  ;)


yun lang problem namin ni bf, sis, wala na kaming time para mag-DIY. pareho kasi kaming busy. kaya ok na rin for me yung walang aasikasuhin. magbu-beauty rest na lang ako. kelangan ko yun.  ;D

I suggest that the 1st thing you do is find a church that will accommodate your request.  In my case since sa Archbishop's Palace kami, sabi ni Bro. Alexis, depende sa officiating priest na kukunin nyo (ie. no ento, 1 pair of sponsors, etc).

Instead of getting additional PS, I suggest for the candle, cord and veil, have your PS and Parents do it.  Kasi if you think about what those 3 symbols mean, imo, they would be the most appropriate options since they are the ones you will guide you through your marriage.

sana nga pumayag yung priest sa parish nila. di pa kasi experienced yung admin na nakausap namin so puro 'tanong ko kay father' ang mga sagot nya. as for the candle, cord & veil, sa mga kapatid namin ibibigay yung assignment.  :) 

kung pwede nga lang mag-tanan.. then again, hindi na yun applicable. hehe

kami naman masyado nang matanda para magtanan. hehe. pinamimigay na nga ako ng papa ko.  ;D pero once napressure ata si bf sa kuya nya, sabi nya sa akin, tayo na nga sa simbahan! tayong dalawa lang!  ;D

I suggest you look for amateur photography peeps who are just starting out and are looking into building their portfolio.

ok na sis, dad & brothers na lang ni bf. nung xmas family photo nga lang, nag-set up pa dad nya ng studio sa garage nila. i'm sure sa wedding namin e magpipicture din yun.  :)

and if you opt to have a cake, tamang red ribbon or goldilocks pwede na.. Pero i still prefer RR over goldi..  :D


ako rin! di ko na type goldilocks e except for their mango angel cake.  :)

Tapos after ng party lakad lang kayo ni h2b or w2b sa shore ng beach :P

mas gusto ko ata ito sa honeymoon!  :D

mostly lang naman kasi it's the family of either bride or groom na gusto ng malaking celebration diba?!

sa case namin, parang wala?  ;D mom ko lang pero never sya humirit ng di maganda. siguro lang dahil bunso at only daughter ako.  :)

kaso minsan, circus na ang dating. once you see your wedding album, may magtatanong, sino yan? sasagot ni bride, hmm.. di ko kilala e.. o kaya sasagot ni groom, ah bf ni ano, yung kaklase ko nung college.. haha..

if ever mag-iinvite nga kami ng friends, ayoko mag-invite ng hindi ko naman ka-close na gf/bf ng friend ko. mas gusto ko i-extend yung invitation sa ibang gusto ko talagang andun.  :)

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? :(

nakakatuwa talaga ang intimate weddings... plano namin nung una intimate wedding sa tagaytay.. as in immediate families lang namin, tapos best friends.. kaso iniisip namin kung pareho lang ang gagstusin namin for an intimate wedding in tagaytay, at ang medyo malaking wedding dito sa manila, dun na kami sa pangalawa.. kasi close ako sa mga tita ko, and i will feel bad for myself kung hindi ko sila maaimbitahan, dahil konti nga lang sa tagaytay... kasi nga medyo malaki family ko, kami lang yatang magkakapatid at mga asawa nila, nasa 15 - 20 heads na kami plus pa yung sa family..

Natawa ako sa reply na kumare ni ganito, gf ni ganun lol

Ako nga mas gusto ko pa na invite mga close friends ko sa office and sa school ko dati kesa sa mga kamag anak na ang ka close lang eh nanay o lola ko na di ko naman naka usap ng masinsinan ever.

Kumbaga eh yeah kamag anak pero they only know me by NAME. Pustahan tayo di naman nila ako kilala by face pa lol

Ang nakaka inis broadcast ng broadcast mga parents ko and grand parents ko akala mo naman sila nag babayad lol

Iniisip ko na lang na matatapos din to and andito na eh. So much for my intimate, 50 guest wedding lol

Sa mga na sunod ang gusto and gusto ang intimate simple wedding eh inggit ako sa inyo. :D

THIS IS SO LOVELY :)

Congratulations on your engagement and on your wisdom to keep your money for your life after the wedding. May I suggest a few things?

1. I have scoured thrift shops/ukay ukay/garage sales. The last garage sale I went to, they sold 2 wedding gowns that were simple and elegant. The owner said her husband used them for a photo shoot so they sold them cheap. Perhaps you can explore this option. You can easily re-adjust the gown to fit your style (i.e. cut out sleeves, adjust length, etc). Although there are many department store or divisoria gowns that you can buy that can serve you just as well for a fraction of the price of a designer gown.

2. Should you decide to have a small entourage, ask them if they can pay for their gowns and have that as their small and kind gift to you. My entourage offered to pay for the "patahi" of their gowns. We declined na lang but let them pick their own style.

3. Ask one of your friends to serve as photographer just to document the event. Most everyone now owns a nice point and shoot or an slr. Better yet, encourage everyone to bring a camera and send you photos so you have something to remember the day you got married. Madali na ang printing at ang album after.

4. Print your own invitations. There are templates that you can get right off the internet. It's cost effective and you can print kahit konti lang.

I think the fact that you are focusing on the marriage rather than the wedding is wonderful. Kudos to you :)
arf! arf! woof! woof!

@sis caprice - i feel you. same with h2b. He's the youngest from 3 boys in the family. Well-off din sila pero shempre, si h2b is not the type na hihingi ng kung ano ano sa parents niya para lang sa sarili nyang kapakanan. Also, eto ang paniniwala namin ha. 
"we are of legal age when we decided to get married (sa 11.11.11 po kami). So why bother to ask other people or even our parents for the money to be spent in our wedding day when nung gabi na naguusap kami if gusto na ba namin magpakasal at lumagay sa tahimik e wala naman sila dun.. haha! ;D"

parang ganito lang yan e "mommy, penge ng pera papakasal na kami ni ruthie may date na and suppliers list, eto yung magagastos.." haha.. di naman ako underage at lalong hindi nya ako nabuntis out of wedlock.. hehe..

the elegance of a wedding is not actually seen through the shiny glasses on the cocktail table, the eye-catching names of foods in the menu list, the number of beads that you have in your wedding gown, neither in the jewelries that you are wearing on your big day.

It is seen in the smile of those 2 faces sharing their love in front of the altar.

YUN OH! NAKA-MAJOR MAJOR ANSWER DIN! hahhahahaha!  ;D

dati ang dream ko lang eh ganito:

-ikasal sa Balay Indang
-maximum number of 40 guests
-walang entourage, just the groom and the bride
-walang ekek

well..that's not going to happen kasi:

-ako pa lang ang babaeng ikakasal sa family
-eldest daughter and eldest granddaughter
-hubby is an only son

yan..siguro pwede na ang ganitong uber simple wedding sa renewal of vows..

nakapunta na din ako sa ganitong wedding. super simple pero memorable.

yung una sa sister ko, actually may mga anak na na sila pero nag decide sila na ikasal sa church. kaya lang kailangan na agad mag barko nung guy. bale kinasal siila ng umaga tapos alis agad ang guy. kaya nung reception, wala na yung guy kasi nagbiyahe na siya. sa bahay lang ginawa ang reception pero masaya pa din. kainan lang at walang program. sa simbahan naman, parang naka dress lang ang kapatid ko pero may secondary sponsors siya, kami naman yun, nakadress na white lang din.

yung sa pamangkin ko naman, naghanap lang kami ng ng white dress sa divisoria. nakakita kami, worth 1.5k lang. ang ganda na. bagay pa sa kanya. tapos yung guy naman hindi nakabarong. may seconday sponsors din sila pero puro dress lang ang suot. pero sila naman nag march pa. hindi na din sila ng photographer at videographer. dami naman may camera sa family eh.  tapos kainan sa isang resto sa qc. wala ding program. bumili na lang din ng cake. ok naman.

suggest ko din na sana mag lakad na lang din pa-altar ang bride kasi minsan lang tayo ikasal. kahit siya lang ang mag march at yung groom.
If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy....

Yun pala friend namin sobrang simple lang ang kasal. 80k ata nagastos nila. Sa Tagaytay kasi kaya medyo mahal.

Chapel on the Hill (correct ba?) yun church

Then nag rent ng house as venue ng preps and reception. (bahay ni Jolina daw yun ni rent lol)

Then walang entourage.

Photo Video c/o our friends

Then after ng wedding direcho na kami sa recption. Caterer is Queensland yun super basic na set up lang at 250 per head.

He had so much fun. Sobrang busog kami. Di pa kami stressed or pagod kasi napaka casual. Parang nag pa bday lang sila.

Pero nakaka iyak pa din yun wedding nila. :D MAS feel mo kasi ALL can really relate to the couple. :D
