Sis, unang need mo gawin, identify your total estimated budget. Tapos list down lahat ng aspects na feeling mo necessary for your wedding (e.g church, food, venue, etc) Then ibreak down mo by percentage/amount to how much ang willing mong iallot for each aspect. Tapos if meron ka nang estimated budget for each aspect, madali na lang magresearch kung sino-sinong mga suppliers ang pede mong kunin:)


Thanks Sis yannuh! :)
I definitely will do that.

tama si sis yannuh, sis The Non-Kikay. identify your budget, then prioritize from top to bottom.. then mag allot ka ng amount sa bawat isa... dun mo makakapag start ng pag scout ng suppliers. :) kasi malalaman mo through sa mga ibat ibang thread dito kung high end suppliers ba sila, mid range, at kung budget suppliers.. :) happy preps sis! :D
In the end, we only regret the chances we didn't take.

^ sa old thread sis as in way back 2012 ata yun hehe may isang taga dito din sa GT na dyan ang wedding. Nag pm pa kami pero unfortunately nag clear na ko ng inbox last year. Anyway, nag FT dyan ang hubby ko nung planning pa lang kami before. Post or pm your email address sis forward ko sayo yung personal review ni hubby and photos then ikaw na lang din mag try mismo ng food pwede naman mag FT. As far as I remember yung parking space ang challenge since para daw tong nasa loob ng village.

^pm sent sis! hehe. actually nasa loob nga sila ng village and their parking is just in front of the houses. we're looking at around 80-100 guests and a lot will carpool so i don't think parking space is an issue. however, medyo naguluhan ako sa rates nila. i contacted the lady owner and got their rates via email, pasok sa budget so natuwa ako and decided to do ocular. when we went there, the hubby was there not the lady owner. he gave us a flyer na iba yung rate kesa original na napag-usapan namin along with other details. it's 10k difference sis and for a budget bride like me, malaki na yun :( . i did a lot of research unfortunately malayo yung mga budget places na nakita ko, eto na talaga yung malapit na pasok sa budget namin. i live in caloocan btw.

Hello everyone!

This is quite a long post, please bear with me :) Just to share with you, I was helping one friend of mine who was organizing her March 5, 2015 wedding. Just a background, this friend was the one who told me that once she gets married, she will only invite around 50-60 guests, so when her bf proposed to her last year, they were dead on having that very intimate wedding. Unfortunately or fortunately for them, work made them so busy, so they just started their preps, January this year, around 89 days before her wedding. True enough, we were able to have that very intimate wedding, what they did was:

1. They knew who and how many to invite.
2. They knew their idea of the wedding that they wanted.
3. They knew how to prioritize the needs and the wants.
4. They asked friends to help out in the wedding
5. They were not easily influenced by parents, family and friends.

First the church, they got married in a transfiguartion church in Antipolo, which they got for 5k, and super worth it! the pictures were just beautiful. They hosted 3 receptions. One for after the church which included the couple, their immediate families (total of 7!), godparents and around 2 friends (me and another friend) we were only there because, I had to make the floral decor and the other since she drove for the priest. The first reception was in Seven Suites, coincidentally, there was a star gazing activity, so that was our form of entertainment. No hosts, no OTDs, no entertainment, just the people and PV! For the 2nd reception, the couple invited their friends, it was in a newly opened restaurant around Marikina. It is a shoe factory turned into an event's place. Since they were still on soft opening mode, they got 50% off the cost! Our theme was food and drinks! we had a quiz night, and we only had the SDE as our form of entertainment. Me and my friend just put up a snack bar, different types, kinds of chips inside brown bags with names of the guests and table names (named after their favorite beer brands), so it was their snack as well as their escort cards. And for the 3rd reception, the couple just hosted for their extended families.

Their wedding was very beautiful, touching albeit being expensive. A great experience in organizing, I might say.

Oh, before I forget, here are the list of their suppliers and the costs which I got to know:

Bridal gown: Ivory and White bridal (used to be 30k, but we got it we got this at 50% off, so around 15k)
Barong and Pants: Mananahi in Kamuning (6k)
PV: 3:11 Art Images and Fly Motion Photography (around 38k in total)
Rings: Melted rings of the MOB
HMUA: Friend of the Bride (but she kind of paid an honorarium payment)
Priest: Tito of a friend
Shoes: Borrowed shoes (Perfect Match wedge shoes in nude)
Bridal Car: Bride's own car
Church: Transfiguration of Christ in Antipolo
Reception1: Seven Suites Antipolo
Reception2: Industriya Marikina

DIY Projects:
Church Flowers
Save-the-date
Invites + Organic Packages (for godparents)
Invites for 2nd reception
table decor for 2nd reception
snackbar/escort cards
Calligraphy of escort cards
bottles and jar decor as flower vases

Hope this helps!
Happy preps ladies! Remember, we just have to be reminded that the most important part of getting married is after the wedding, let's not be carried away with too much aesthetics. :)
