Our Wedding Diary 32: Wedding Expo 2010

I can’t miss to attend this bridal fair. This is the biggest bridal fair in the country that’s being held every March and September. I’m currently looking for an invitation and couterier pa din that’s why I decided to attend this fair. I’m always like that, when I try to attend a fair I make it a point na may certain wedding supplier lang ako na hahanapin para naka focus ako sa mga details. Usually, I look for 2 or 3 wedding suppliers lang para di ako masyado nag ru-rush.

Cacai and Ivan kept me company, they are also preparing for their wedding. Wala kasi si Roj kaya sila muna kasama ko. I think Roj will be joining me this September to make last minute decisions sa mga suppliers. As soon as we arrive at PICC Forum, we headed towards the registration booth and got our name tags and loot bags.

Cacai and I were so excited to check the gowns on display. Cai, took some pictures of the gowns and cakes pero patago lang. Bawal naman kasi talaga. hahaha. Magaling lang kami. I'm still waiting for Cai to send me the pictures and then I'm going to post it here in order for you to check the details of the gown. I just keep the brochures of the couturiers in order for me to compare the rates and their works.

We checked the Imagine Nation booth and I got interested on their “Before I Do” seminar. It’s a seminar for the brides and grooms to be. It will focus on the important factors that will make or break the marriage. I texted Roj and asked if He wanted to join the seminar and He said “Yes”. We will pay the fee and attend this seminar on November. I’m glad my fiancĂ©e is so open minded about this seminar, yung ibang grooms kasi ayaw eh or pahirapan. Buti na lng si Roj, basta para sa amin game lagi.

They are also offering lessons on photography and I think I might join one of them. Hehehe.

Vintage Bridal Car for our wedding? Uhmmm....Why not!!! It's so classy!!! If budget permits, were going to book one!!!I’m going to update our budget list tonight in order to check if we’re not over spending.

But what really made my day is I've found an event stylist and I'm so happy because she really know what I want for my wedding theme.

Unlike other suppliers who wants me to provide pictures first, this one is different. I just describe what I wanted and she really suggested a lot of ideas. We might visit them at their office next month. I'm so excited!!!! Good thing I had one more month before mag start yung first day ko sa bagong company kasi April will be allotted for meet ups with suppliers. Gosh, only 9 months to go!!!! So far, we made a lot of accomplishment on our wedding preparations. We might start doing our DIY stuff as early as June 2010 para naman pagdating ng December or November pa spa spa na lang ako. hehehe.

Khim's Thoughts 23: Uno Animo

Last week, I received a text from Cacai that Uno Animo will be having a get together. I was so excited because I haven't seen some of them for a while. When they inform me that it will be a lunch date, I thought that it will end at 1pm or 2pm but I was wrong. It was extended until 5:30, guess we missed each other that much. Kahit 5 lang kami masaya, super kwentuhan and tawanan. It’s nice to see old friends and mas Ok pag nakikita or nababalitaan mo na OK sila. Ala man ang karamihan, I know sa susunod madami na aatend. For sure uulitin namin toh. Super kahit ampon lang ako ng Uno Animo, nafeel ko kung paano nila ako tinanggap kaya super mahal na mahal ko tong mga ito eh. Yung tipong kahit anung mangyari alam mo na di ka nila ilalaglag and susuportahan ka. Here’s some of our pictures from Spawn and Vayie. Cacai and Rj haven’t uploaded their pics yet. Hehehe

Our Wedding Diary 31: Getting Married

Its Sabbath day and I should be in church today but I woke up with a slight fever. I decided to just stay at home in order to rest. After reading my Sabbath lesson and a few chapters in the Bible, I become bored and I can’t think of anything to do. Suddenly, I grabbed my organizer and I remember that I had a lot of pending blog entries. So I finally decided to post a few entries for now para naman mabawasaan ung mga pending post ko. Let’s begin it with the super long overdue bridal fair that I attended last month. Here’s the first entry for today. Enjoy reading!!!!

Getting Married was organized by one of the famous Wedding Coordinator in the land, Miss Kutchie Zaldarriaga. Vayie, accompanied me in this event and I would like to thank her kasi pumayag sya. I really miss her and since I have no valentine date, I opted to go out with her. There’s no dull moment when it is being spent with a friend. I would like to thank her for the pictures; you can also read her story here.

I’m having a hard time for the gown designs that I want. Since Veluz is already booked for the whole year, I have to look for another couturier that will make my gown. For this event, that’s my main target –to look for a couturier. Check out the photos for a few wedding gown samples that we found in this bridal fair.

We headed for Charlie’s booth of 1410 Couture and check out his designs. He was so accommodating and he even understands the designs that I want. We’ll be visiting his office next month for the sketch of my gown. I have another designer in mind, he’s also famous like Veluz but I’ll also check if his rate is going to fit our budget or I can compromise some suppliers just to have him. I’ll keep you updated in the following months regarding my couturier.

After checking the gowns, we went on photo booth hopping and here’s a few photo courtesy of Vayie.

Nahihiya pa si Vayie, but I told her it’s OK. Kasi sa mga bridal fair this is one of the must have activity of every guest. We also headed to Partypics booth and they gave me an elegant photo album frame.

Thanks Nadia for the wonderful gift. I really love Partypics because despite having a lot of media exposure and being awarded as one of the Wedding At Works Top 10 Wedding supplier of the year they are always humble. They have very affordable rates while maintaining a good quality on their services and products.

We ended the day by eating at Chef D’ Angelo and as usual nagkwentuhan kami ng bonggang bongga.

I really enjoyed that day. How I wish we can see each other more often!!!Now, I’m starting to miss her again and the rest of the morning girls!!! SIGH, DI BALE SA BINYAG NI Pretzel magkikita kita pa naman tayo!!!See you soon girls!!!!
