We had our second-to-the-last fitting last Sunday with Ron De Torres. Barong and Gown nearly done. 😀

I saw the signs…

There’ll be a couple of signs at the wedding. One’s a “Here Comes the Bride” handheld banner (not pictured). There’s an A-frame “Happily Ever After Starts Here…” (first picture). Lastly there’ll be a corkboard timeline (second photo) tacked and pinned with our photos and date receipts (last photo, so Jenkinsonian-Archival, I know…)


Yup, we have our marriage license now. Look out, world. XD

DIY: Flower girl baskets

What I love about my Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids is that they really take their duties seriously. One of my bridesmaids, my super creative sister Janine always helps me in my DIYs and has accompanied me to Divisoria twice already. My other bridesmaid, my college bestfriend Daisy once went to Dangwa with her boyfriend to scout suppliers for flowers and floral arrangement for the church and reception. She even went to a junk shop to look for wine bottles to be used as table numbers.This time, my Maid of Honor Jefel showed her hidden talent, creativity and kaartehan (LOL) in making the baskets for our flower girls.

So pretty! She also posted her obra maestra in her blog.
Thank you! I’m such a happy bride-to-be blessed with perfect Maid of Honor and Bridesmaids! 🙂

Bridal Shoes

Went to Abbylyn Shoes at Cubao Expo with my good friend and college batchmate, Janette. She also had her bridal shoes custom-made by Abbylyn last August.

Custom-made shoes for the superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor.
Her feet are so tiny!

We had late lunch at Bellini’s. Yes, the famous restaurant in the JLC-Bea (Popoy-Basia) epic movie, One More Chance.

Pre-Marriage Counseling Seminar

Note to those tying the knot. You’ll be attending many interviews and seminars. XD

You’ll need to attend a seminar before getting a marriage license from the local civil registry. You’ll need the certificate for the church. You’ll be interviewed by the parish priest (pre-cana). You’ll need the certificate for the marriage banns. You’ll need the banns requirement for the church wedding. You’ll need to attend a seminar given by the church.

I am now confused… O_o

Here are our Pre-Marriage Counseling Seminar pics for the Marriage License. XD The social workers and midwives were hilarious with their sense of humor.

We added to the gift registry at SM Marikina after Christmas Coffee at Starbucks. With Christmas Starbucks Coffee come cherries. And I am still quite adept with cherry stems. *wink*

The Registry

After applying for the marriage license, looking up the seminar schedule and making a downpayment for the mini cooper rental, we picked up the SM Gift Registry cards and made our initial choices. We also ate at the newly opened Chicken Charlie restaurant and Belgian Waffles kiosk at SM Marikina.

The License

We applied for our marriage license at the Marikina City Hall. The seminars will be at the Public Health Office.
