Meet the In Laws

This weekend, me and family will be going with Romy to Pangasinan to meet his parents. I’m kinda excited na.

Then we’ll proceed to Baguio and buy strawberries! Yum!

Wedding Shoes, Wedding Shoes

Went to Landmark today with Mama to start hunting for my wedding shoes. I read in my yahhogroup that Rossana Pena shoes are elegant and fit for weddings. I found one at P650 that’s silver and has studs on it. I like the simple design, and the fit. But when I started walking in it, it started to ache on the toe part. Buti na lang I didn’t buy it yet. I’m sure there’s gonna be a lot of walking and mingling on the wedding day itself and painful shoes might just spoil the fun.

Now I’m thinking of going ala-Father of the Bride the Movie and opt for sneakers. Hmmm, ano nga kaya? ;-)

Measurements Taking and My First Fitting

whew! finally, last saturday, chato and rae were finally able to have their measurements taking with my designer Tet. medyo karir din mag-set ng appointment with them!

anyway, two weeks ago, i had my first fitting na. grabe! as in grabe pala ang feeling ng nakasuot na sa iyo... kahit lining pa lang yun! feeling ko, naka-bridal gown na ako! ikakasal na ako! ganun pala ang feeling! to think it's just the lining, not perfectly fit yet, no beading, etc yet!

pero fave part ko is the train! woah! i so love the train of my gown! kulang na lang rumampa ako around Tet's shop, eh. hehehe!

Guest Wish Sheets

Since I'm just at home today and my script deadline isn't set yet, i had the free time to do two things for the wedding. first is i designed the guest wish sheets and printed out a copy. also, i listed down the revisions to be made in the invites. which reminds me, i have to book my coordinator na so i can include her cel number for the RSVP na. make mental note!

Father's Day

Yesterday we celebrated Father's Day. for the first time, papa is celebrating with a son! hehe, or should i say, a son to be. coz we had dinner with my honey romy after the service at the galleria. happy!

Finally Found THE Florist!

the following is my post in my w@w yahoogroup about me booking a florsit today:

may florist na ako!!!

finally... at last... sa wakas... after interviewing four different
florists... i've found THE ONE! first of all, let me thank dear GRACE DY
for recommending YOLLY of TITA BETH's flowers to me. divine appointment
talaga that we bumped into each other, grace sa printed matter! sa iyo
ko nakuha si miss yolly.

super bait niyang kausap, malinaw at detalyado. hindi puro PR, hindi
puro pagbubuhat ng sariling bangko and she's also very organized. prompt
din sa mga mtgs. tho laging mas maaga ako ng 15 minutes than our
usapan, hehe.

they specialize in weddings talaga so alam niya if something's baduy
and not elegant. may mga request din kasi ako na sasabihin niya if over
decorated na, at ie-explain naman niya why, kaya nagkakaintindihan kami.
diba yung iba, para lumaki ang bayad sa kanila, kesehodang oa na sa
decor, go pa rin sila? si ms yolly, she'd be honest if OA na o exag na ang
mga kabulaklakan sa paligid, hehe.

sila nga pala yung nag-decorate ng set ng FOREVER IN MY HEART na soap
dati ni regine velasquez sa gma. inhouse din sila ng patio ibarra and
ibarra's garden. ay, plus point pa sa kanila is that, maraming tips kang
makukuha, not only sa flowers. pati sa how to make ur wedding more
organized. dami ko napupulot na ideas! pati nga yung flow ng tao from
ceremony to reception, sa kanya ko nakuha ang idea. natulungan niya ako
mag-isip when we went kanina to my venue to do ocular.

at ang pinakaimportante, affordable siya! hindi naman sadsad na cheap to
the point na too good to be true. pero reasonable. ako pa, eh budgeted
ang wedding namin at ang kuripot ko!

yun lang!


i forgot to mention in my previous post ABOUT MY FLORIST YOLLY OF TITA
BETH'S FLOWERS that she also uses roses, carnation, stargazer,
gerberas, button mums, etc. di tulad ng ibang mas murang florist na puro roses
at malaysian mums lang.

at di ka iiwanan b4 wedding kasi sila mismo magpi-pin ng butonniere sa
male ento, maghahand-over ng boquets sa female ento. so hindi mo na
poproblemahin kung kanino ba this nosegay and that.

happy happy me!
