I have found the one whom my soul loves – Song of Solomon 3:4
Since my hubby is a Christian, we first planned to have a garden wedding. We researched for a possible venue but later on hubby gave way by deciding to have our wedding in a Catholic church instead. 🙂 I really appreciate and love him more for what he did because I know such decision is not that easy. I know that it doesn’t matter where we tie the knot, as long as we love each other and Jesus will be the center of our marriage..it’s all that matters!
Planning your own wedding is never an easy thing especially if you are also a busy working bride-to-be. And so I understand those who opt to hire for full/partial wedding coordination to make sure there is really somebody to look into the details of the whole wedding planning process. However, in my case, I believe that no matter how busy you are, you should still really find time to be on top of the whole planning process; after all it is nothing but your own wedding. I don’t say that asking for professional help is not a good thing. In fact, I still strongly recommend it to every bride-to-be. I myself chose to ask for the help of Simply Sparkle Events Management for their On-The-Day Coordination. And I really appreciate for their contribution and concern in making the whole thing easy, perfect and of course less costly as much as possible. And on the day of the wedding, they are the one who made things in control as according to what we had planned it to be.
It’s 90 days to go before the BIG DAY and we’re getting more excited as we plan the details!.. But sometimes even how much we plan things to be perfect, we really need to be ready for some unexpected things that come along the way. These “some unexpected things” may turn to be a “blessing in disguise”, if handled gracefully and patiently, or may turn you to be a bridezilla.
And speaking of plans that did not come as really planned..our prenup photo shoot is my share.. 🙂
Weeks before the schedule, we already planned what props to do and bring, the costume and accessories, the inspiration or the theme. For the props, I will order a personalized Coke (with our names written), bring 10 pieces of colorful and yummy cupcakes and will DIY the save the date props.
