hola mga kapatid. salamat po sa lahat ng dumaan sa fb ko for our wedding pictures.

sis sakura nd chelle, konti na lang. chill na dapat kayo ngayon,

sis katrinac salamat po. gawa ni Rei yan, and during the time na MIA sya yan. nung araw na yan, lutang na siya, i was beginning to worry na rin. two days after, ayun MIA na sya. windang na pala sya nun, ang adik, hindi man lang nagsabi sa akin. pero at least, everyone loved my dress, and somehow, im proud kasi concept ko yun, and half of what it is was my design, plus rei's inputs. may yabang factor lang, kasi concept namin lahat yun ni hubby. as in during our detailing, parang ayaw maniwala ng AE namin sa hizon's sa mga sinasabi namin. buti na lang si ate ces, marunong sumakay sa trip namin, so parang kami na rin ang nagstyle nun, sila lang ang gumawa. it was a good thing that ate ces knows how to style, para alam nya kung paano yung execution. 

sis marigie, hehe, okay lang. i thought it's too bold of me kasi kung magpiprisinta ako (just dont want to be tacky at that). well, here's one thing. you are in good hands with ate ces. mabait yan and very keen on detail. basta bigyan mo sila ng copy ng program mo before hand, and kung hindi masyadong conventional ang wedding mo, brief mo din sila nang maaga. bakit kaya hindi mo maview yung pics? add mo kaya ako as friend?

siguro after Holy Week, mappublish ko na yung mga packages namin.

happy monday everyone.

chelle_peachy - i hope sis, maayos na yung sa invitation mo. :) para di na mastress. lapit na ng wedding mo. super paspasan nga yan.

augbride - thank you so much sis! kaso ngayon, lumalakas nanaman ako ng kain. haha! sana bumalik ulit yung dati kong motivation.

shooting_star - hi sis! i miss you!!! ang name natin sis, pwede maging BWives. Beautiful Wives. hehe

wife2be - thank you so much sis!!! lalo ako na iinspire mag blog may pag nababasa ako na comments na ganyan. tee hee

Marigie - yup sis, actually pwedeng fg magdala nun (yun FG na last in line, before the bride) then pwede din little bride. pwede din junior bridesmaid. depende sayo. honestly sis, di ko pa naitanong sa church namin kung pwede ito. hahah! dahil dyan ,tatawag ako sa church namin tomorrow to double check. pero wala naman ako nakitang/nababasang rules about this eh. kumbaga instead of flowers, ito nalang ang dala nila. hhhm, re: missalette sis, mas maganda din siguro yung ipa check mo muna sa church nyo if approved na. baka mamaya, may special request pala sila dun sa wedding ceremony nila na nakalagay dun sa missalette diba?

meandmyhoney - sis ang lapit na ng wedding mo!!! woot woot!

mafiapenguins - nakakatuwa nga yun sis, kasi ang ganda talaga ng pagkagawa nya ng gown mo, tapos ikaw pa ang may concept din diba? :) i love it, lalo na't nagpaka offbeat kayo ni hubby mo sis! :) astig!

share ko lang, finally nakapag mass productiojn na kami kahapon ni h2b ng missalette namin! 35 pieces lang muna ang pinagawa namin ni h2b. bale nag pa photocopy nalang kami ng back to back. ;) saka nalang kami magdagdag a few days before the wedding. baka masyadong madami mapa gawa namin. :D at nakakatuwa, kasi di na namin need mag effort mag stapler, kasi pinahiram nila kami dun ng stapler nila na mahaba. kaya effortless ang pag staple namin! di na namin nilagyan ng design yung missalette. hehe. as in parang booklet nalang talaga sya.

and sisses, i would like to ask na pag pray nyo din sana si mama ko. kasi kanina hinimatay sya. medyo nanghihina pa sya. super na low blood sya, plus ang taas ng blood sugar level nya. :( thanks sisses!

hugs to you sis katrinac. all will be fine.

actually, i think 35 missalettes, okay na yun. unless na lang marami ang ninong at ninang. hindi naman kaylangan lahat merong missalette eh.

last night, nagupload ako ulet ng mga pics ng details namin and from guests, habang nagffinalise ng aming packages.

sis katrinac - everything will be fine... dont worry... :) madami kaming magdadasal for your mom

sis mafia - thanks po sa help :) pero matatapos na raw yung invites... crossing fingers na this thursday ok na...

sis laine19 - thanks much...me mauuna pa naman sa akin hehe like sis meandmyhoney and sakurabride. oo malapit na talaga at ilang araw na lang... nakakanerbyos nanakakawindang habang lumalapit...

sis meandmyhoney - i suggest that sa araw mo na sila bayaran... like 20% ang ititira mo ng payment sa kanila kasi baka mamaya di ka nila siputin. ilagay mo na sa isang sobre... di kita tinatakot ah? but then yan din kasi ang gagawin namin pwera lang dun sa me deadline talaga before the wedding...

for missallettes - we were discourage by the church for some reasons... sana lang magrovide sila para me guide ang mga guest namin...

candles - bakit kaya we were also discourage to bring? was it because sila na magpoprovide?

will have my trial make up this thursday... free daw so take advantage...
at talagang allergic kami sa oot fee kaya yung plan naming kunin na hmua eh baka ma out of the picture :( am sad... ayoko naman kasi mag away kami ni h2b dahil sa make up...
... and the new journey begins :)
the truth will always prevail...

sis chelle, matatapos yan :) crossing fingers with you too.

about your missalettes, we were discouraged to have missalettes din kasi daw minsan nawawala yung solemnity nung ceremony kasi lagi na lang sa missalette nakatingin yung mga guests. tama nga naman sila. yung sa amin, super guided naman ang congregation, so hindi naman sila na-lost sa ceremony, kasi may mga ushers sila na nagguide sa mga sponsors kung kelan sila papasok, plus yung commentator namin provided ng church, kaya kabisado na nya. galing nga ni ate ruby eh (coordinator namin from the church). dun naman sa last wedding ko, walang missalettes ang guests (kasi hindi na nakapagprint yung couple, the day before the wedding kasi na-approve yung missalette nila), ayun, lost sila guests, pati si commentator hindi alam kung kelan sasagot.

in your case naman dear, confirm mo na lang kay church kung may mga ushers silang ipprovide to guide the sponsors sa mga parts nila, and kung magpprovide sila ng commentator. ask mo na rin kung gagamit sila ng projector para sa responses, since walang reference yung mga guests. same din sa candles.

HTH

Sharing our Part 1 of our Wedding Suppliers Rating:

HOTEL FOR PREPS
Orchid Garden Suites - 4

We were supposed to get 2 Superior rooms for my family and 1 Suite Room for Mike's family. But because we had a family emergency, we decided to just get 1 Superior room for the kids and Mike's family still had the Suite Room. Before we reserved the rooms I advised the frontdesk and even called 72hrs prior to check in to verify If we can do early check in because my family will be coming from the province and they need to have a place to stay. I understand that it is not guaranteed and still depends on the availability of the room. Kaso, nag late check in na nga kami kasi wala pa yung mga bata. Around 4pm I went back to the frontdesk to verify If we can get the room and pay for it. Hindi pa daw pwede. Occupied pa daw yung isa and the other room e nililinis pa. Good thing they upgraded our room into a Family room with no additional charge for the inconvinience. Pero pano nalang kung 2 rooms parin ang kailangan namin. Di walang room yung iba. Nainis pa ako kasi hindi nila nilagay sa note nila na It was for a wedding. Sana naman nagawan nila ng paraan na kahit 1 floor lang ang pagitan ng rooms. Naku, yung room ni MIL e nasa 4th floor and yung sa family ko naman e 7th floor. Kamusta naman ako. Akyat baba ako lagi. Buti nalang mabilis yung elevator nila kasi wala namang gumagamit lagi. It also comes with free breakfast. Ok naman ang food. The staff are friendly and polite. Yung rooms lang talaga ang naging problem namin.

Photo & Video
Parkershot Photography - 4.5

Prenup - Super like namin yung photographer namin. PJ Salazar is very nice and marunong sa bata. That's why we were able to include Aidan in our prenup photoshoot. The shots were very journalistic. Walang halong arte. After 1 week nakuha na agad namin yung Cd ng RAW pictures.

Wedding - We requested for PJ Salazar since he was our prenup photographer. Pero nakalimutan ko nang i follow up so hindi yung team ni PJ yung dumating. We were not so comfortable with the new Team. They did not even introduce themselves to us. Exactly 1 week after the wedding we got our 4Cds of RAW pictures. We love the pictures kaso may mga hindi nakunan. Sayang yung mga DIYs ko kasi hindi nakunan ng pictures. Buti nalang na-picturan ko na yung iba before the wedding. Kaso yung flowers for the entourage hindi nakunan. Yung Flower Fan and Mini Bouquet lang and meron. Hindi din nakunan yung pillows. Pero ok narin kasi madami silang stolen shots with my family na gusto ko. Hindi din maganda yung kuha nila sa buffet area. Hindi din nakunan ng maganda yung DIY Wish tree and DIY Table Numbers namin.


PHOTOBOOTH
PartyBoothster - 5

Bought this at a discounted price from Cascashpinoy. Cathy Rueda is nice and responds quickly to my quieries. I love the lay-out they made for us. Very Spring themed. Their operators are also friendly. As ussual the guests and my family enjoyed the photobooth.


CEREMONY
Malate Church - 5

We didn't hire a coordinator but we were lucky because magaling and mababait ang mga sakristan nila, kaya hindi kami nahirapan. Father Kevin was the priest who interviewed us and we personally asked him to be our Presider. We were so happy nung nakita namin siya. He even said that he can still remember me. I was touched when I heared him pray for mama. While looking at the pictures of our wedding, I was shock when I saw na Calla Lilies yung flowers na ginamit. Considering that we have their most affordable package, pero yung favorite flower ko ang nilagay nila. =)


RECEPTION
Ramon Magsaysay Center (Lower Ground Floor) - 5

I never liked Garden weddings. I'm sure everybody knows why. Hindi ako makakasayaw. hehe Our first plan was to get Malate Church's Function Hall. But because they have so many restrictions (no tiffany chairs, pins on the walls are not allowed,loud music are prohibited, etc) we decided to look for another place. Basta may aircon, madaling ayusan, maganda lagyan ng mood lighting and maganda ang flooring ok na sakin. =) Buti nalang na mention ni Ms Anj (owner of Madels Cuisine) na merong bagong function room and RMC goof for 100 pax. We then went there,nagustuhan ko agad yung place. Madaling lagyan ng pins yung walls kasi meron part na made of foam. Maganda din lagyan ng mood lightings dahil mababa lang yung ceilling. And maganda ang flooring nila. Nung una, kinakabahan pa kami kasi feeling namin hindi kakasya yung set up ng caterer namin, Buti nalang magaling si Ms. Gina and nagkasya kami. May mini dance floor pa sa harap. =) I also would like to say thank you to RMC kasi nabasag yung vase ng WISH TREE namin. Buti nalang pinahiram nila yung malaking vase nila sa lobby. =)


CATERER
Quidos Grill - 5

We actually decided on another caterer before we learned of Quido's. We only gave Quido's a shot because they had a grand food tasting and we wanted to see what they had to offer and to see their set up as well. Once we tasted the food though, it was an "aha" moment for us. We had to get them. Quido's simply had the best tasting food that we have ever encountered in any event. Even our guests raved about how great the food at the wedding was. Our only problem was, they were way out of our budget. We're really thankful to Ms. Gina. She really sat down with us and exchanged emails with us until we figured a deal that was perfect for us. We both thought that since we haggled our way at such a thrifty price, that we wouldn't be given an A+ treatment. But again, we proved ourselves wrong. I couldn't have thanked Ms. Gina enough at the reception because she was personally present in the event to make sure that everything was run smoothly. Her food servers were very polite and we felt that we had such a great bargain for what we paid for. Great service, elegant set-up and excellent food. We even told the guests to get her calling card because they won't find a better caterer than them.


Bridal Gown
Ms. Magda - 5

Ms. Magda is one of my favorite supplier. Pano namang hindi. Sobrang spoiled ako sa kanya. =) She gave me a big discount on my wedding dress. It comes with a free Penup gown pero since hindi naman ako magb-bridal gown sa prenup namin, I asked her kung pwede gown nalang ni MIL. And she okd. It was my dream to wear a wedding dress with ruffles and long train. But I was so shy to ask her na ganun nalang sana ang gawin niya. Siguro nakita niya na natutuwa ako sa mga ginagawa niyang gowns so she offered na ganun nalang din yung gagawin niya sa gown ko. =) With no additional charge. She also made 3 wine bags. Super like ko din yung personalized accessories na ginawa ni Ms. Magda (garter, pouch, cord, ring and arrhae pillows and veil). All that for free. =) Medyo may konting problem lang sa oras kay Ms. Magda. Pero ok lang kasi nags start palang kasi siya and hindi pa siya masyadong sanay. At least now, she knows how to say NO kapag alam niya na hindi na kaya. =)


HMUA
MV Balo - 5

Another favorite supplier that is really close to my heart. Maricar, was the only MUA I had na naayos ang kilay ko. hehe. On our Prenup Day, gumising pa siya ng sobrang aga para lang ma make up-an ako. And sa blog niya lang nalaman ko na 5th anniversary nila ni Kel (her husband) that day. Sorry naman at nabulabog kayo namin =) Amazing kasi walang retouch ang make up na ginawa niya sakin. And to think na sa Parks and Wildlife pa ang venue. Sobrang init. I had my make up at 4am and the prenup pictorial ended around 12 noon. Galing. =) On our wedding day, super sad ako kasi wala si Papa. I had no MOH because my sister was with Papa at the hospital. Na touch ako kasi andiyan siya all the time para alalayan ako. From hotel, to Church and upto reception. Parang siya narin ang naging MOH ko that day. Pati si hubby nagustuhan yung make up niya. =)


HOST
Hazel Sandig - 5

Hazel is the sweetest person that we never personally met prior to the reception. A lot of complications came up before the wedding that we were left with no one to host the program two nights before the day itself. Hazel was reccommended by our son's goodmother. She said that hazel usually hosts their events in the company, that she was really good and that she would give us a friendly price; considering that the event was in two days and she has a day job. We really didn't have a budget for a host since our host-to-be was supposed to do it pro bono. So we were fearing how friendly the friendly price could be considering the circumstances. Or if she would even consider the job knowing that she'd have roughly one day to prepare and even know us.Fortunately, hazel proved more than anything else that this wasn't simply just a job. We even had an awkward moment because we couldn't talk about how much her services would cost. Right off the first time I spoke with her, she was really on top of things. She was always updating me and asking for all the details that she needed. She didn't want everyone to know that she was a last minute mc and she wanted to know us on a personal level because she didn't want our wedding to be systematic. She wanted it to be personal for all of us including our guests, and even for herself. We really appreciate all the effort she gave given the time constraints. She even asked for a sudden leave from her job, so she could focus on our wedding, the day itself. Both of us really felt comfortable talking with her and discussing everything she needed to know. She made us feel that she was not only our mc but a friend as well. She even asked how papa was. In the event, hazel was really on top of everything. She was funny, she was articulate and she fit our personalities well. The guests felt how much she was a part of our wedding and not just someone who we hired just to talk in front and discuss the sequence of the program. Hazel set the atmosphere that we wanted perfectly. She made it solemn but fun... and she definitely saved us from a nervous breakdown


WEDDING CAKE
DIY Krispy Kreme Doughnut Tower - 5

Hubby and I are proud to say that we were able to make a doughnut tower out of scratch. Made of old boxes and empty soda cans we had our own 5-tier doughnut tower. My original plan is to have a green doughnut from krispy kreme with a monogram flag and Bride w/veil and groom with bow tie for the topper. But Mike's staff volunteered to make their own design for the doughnuts and tower. Ok naman since parang naging Spring/Monogram theme siya. Thank you KK for the free doughnuts. =)


BRIDAL AND CAR BOUQUET
Ysabela Florist - 5

I didnt have a chance to meet Ms. Weng kasi ang layo ng Quiapo from Makati. But we always ecxhange emails in FB. Mabilis magreply sa queries ko si Ms. Weng. Very accomodating and super affordable and packages niya. I love her arrangements and ang daming roses na nilagay sa bouquet ko. =) I also like the arrangement she made for the car bouquet.


Lights & Sound / Projector & Screen
CYBERSOUNDS - 4

We have L/S and Projector/Screen package with Cybersounds. I decided na sila na kukunin namin kasi nung nakausap ko si Bobby (owner) discounted pa yung rates nila. almost 3k din ang difference from other L/S. I'll rate them on each item na kinuha namin sa kanila.

LIGHTS (5) - We loved the lights. I personally requested that I really want to have green lights only. And disco lights as an additional color (kapag kailangan lang). When we first met Bobby's staff we were told that the venue is too small and mainit yung par lights sa amin. Good thing they found a way na mailagay yung 8 par lights na hindi kami mainitan.

SOUNDS (3) - Hubby loves music. And madami siyang gustong love songs na ip-play sa wedding reception. We were told that we have to email them the list of the songs we want as early as 2 months so they could download it in case wala silang ganung song. We emailed them the songs pati narin yung program. We had some minor revisions nga lang weeks before the wedding. We also downloaded the songs and placed it in a CD para sure na maiplay yun. For some reason, nawala yung yellow folder na hawak ni Mike na dapat e bibigay niya sa coordinators sa reception. Andun kasi yung program for the songs. Ayun, na corrupt and CD and wala din sila list ng songs namin. Ewan ko ano nangyari. Ok naman yung Entourage entrance song and pati yung first dance. Kaso, while having the picture taking, napansin ni hubby na Bossa yung music. Kakagigil because we have our own songs. Buti nalang pinilit ko si hubby na dalhin yung laptop. kasi naka save din dun yung songs. Naayos naman siya kaso I am sure hindi yung songs namin ang naka play before the reception started.

PROJECTOR and SCREEN (4) - We have 3 DIY AVPs so nag rent nalang kami ng projector and screen sa kanila. Kasama din yung AVPs sa CD so corrupt din yun. Good thing andun din yung AVPs sa laptop pati yung standby Photo namin. On our second AVP, hindi pantay yung pag play ng video sa song. So pinaulit namin. Technical problem naman siya so we cannot blame them.

BUBBLE MACHINE & SMOKE MACHINE (4) - Ok yung smoke machine nila. Kaso yung bubbles sobrang konti. Meron namang bubbles during the whole time we were dancing kaso konti siya talaga. Natawa nga ako nung nakita ko yung bubbles sa harap namin. Naisip namin, sana dinala nalang ni Aidan yung bubbles niya and siya nalang nag blow ng bubbles. Mas madami pa. hehe

Total score: 4


GROOM’S and FATHER OF THE BRIDE’S BARONG
Liza San Diego Boutique - 5

Ms. Lisa is very nice and accommodating. She gave me a discount kahit 2 barongs lang binili namin. When we checked the cost of Pina Cocoon barong with lining in Onesimus, it ranges from 5k-10k. But we were able to haggle the price with Ms. Liza and we bought it for PhP2300 only. =)


Mother of the Bride and Little Bride Gowns (Labor Only) - 3

I don't have control over this since sa province siya pinatahi ng Mom ko. Mas mahirap din naman kasi kung dito pa sa Manila because they arrived the day before the wedding. Nasunod naman yung gown na gusto ng nanay ko. Yun nga lang, hindi manlang nilagyan ng beads. Ewan ko bakit... Maganda naman kasi pulido yung tahi. Maybe it was also my fault kasi mali yung tela na nabili ko for the type of dress na pinili ng Nanay ko. Masyado kasing matigas yung tela na nabili ko. The upper part is ok and maganda tignan. But the skirt is not. Hirap pa plantsahin kasi matigas yung tela.

With my little bride's gown, maganda siya. Sayang lang because since we had an emergency before the wedding e naiwan yung belt sa house ng sister ko. Good thing kahit papano e maayos naman ang hitsura. Wala nga lang shape yung dress sa bewang.


ENTOURAGE GOWNS (Labor Only)
Becky - 3

A big stress during our wedding day. Good thing naayos yung mga gowns kahit papano. But looking back into things, I still wish na sana sa Divisoria nalang ako nagpagawa ng gowns for my entourage. I thought kaya niyang sundan yung design na gusto ko.

Secondary Sponsors: Nasunod naman ang gusto ko na bubble skirt. Yun nga lang, I dont like the flower na ginawa niya. Hindi bagay sa tela na ginamit.

Flower Girls: The dress itself is ok. I really want to have a simple gown for my flower girls. I just can't get over the fact na hindi Japanese Belt ang ginawa niya. I don't know kung bakit hindi niya kayang gawin yun. =( Obvious naman sa picture na binigay ko na Japanese Belt yun. Good thing maganda yung tela na nabili ko kaya ok parin naman tignan yung gown and the belt.

MOH - Totally a disaster. Tinapon niya ang almost 800 na nagastos ko sa tela and labor. My sister got mad because hindi nasunod yung design na ginawa niya. She said naintindihan niya yung sketch ng sister ko. Tapos, hindi naman pala. And since ayaw na ng sister ko na magpatahi sa kanya, dinala nalang niya sa ibang modista. =(


BEARER'S BARONG
 Divisoria - 5

We had a good deal with the Bearers Barong. Bought them for only 175.00 each in Divisoria. And again, it was my fault kung bakit hindi kumasya sa little brother ko yung barong niya. hehe It was almost a year since the last time I saw him and I didn’t expect na lumaki siya. hehe


FLOWERS FOR THE ENTOURAGE
 Aiko's Flowershop in Dangwa - 5

I was supposed to have a DIY Buttoniers, Flower fan, Bouquet for the Flower Girl baskets and mini Bouquet. However, I wasn’t satisfied with the crystal buttoniers I made. 2 weeks before the wedding I went to Dangwa and tried my luck to find an affordable florist. There, I met Aiko. Freelancer lang sila but since she gave me an affordable package I said yes. Too risky pero we have no choice. Good thing they did not disappoint us naman. We were supposed to have green carnations for the buttoniers pero walang dumating nung March 8. So, um-ok kami for white roses. Beautiful arrangement, all flowers are fresh and madami siyang binigay na rose petals for us. Not bad for 1k huh? =)


BRIDAL SHOES
 Gibbi - 5

I always find it hard to look for a perfect shoes. Pano naman kasi size 4 ako. Good thing I found one from Gibbi that is prefect for my feet. I am also not a fan of the "TRADITIONAL" wedding shoes, so I bought something that I can still use after the wedding.
