Getting Married - Bridal Fairs

Bridal fairs are a big help when you’re getting married, you have a variety of venues, caterers, photographers, makeup artists, cake designers, invitations, etc  more to choose from. You get freebies and discounts on their packages when you book on the day of the fair and it’s an eye opener for soon-to-wed couples especially if they don’t have a clue on how much they need to spend.

I've attended 2 bridal fairs and I’m still going to attend other fairs to meet more suppliers. Here are some upcoming bridal fairs that I've registered; it’s better to register online because its free and you don’t need to fill out the forms when you’re already at the fair. You can click on the images to direct you to their registration form.

Getting Married - The Planning

image by eivindw 

I have been planning my wedding since February and I have to admit that it’s a lot of work. I spent one whole day on Google and on searching for venues and caterers. My first choice was Savory since they’re my favorite restaurant but I decided to look for other options. So as I checked for caterers and venues, I sent emails and texted them. Some replied as soon as they got my text, some called, some replied thru email and some didn’t bother to entertain my inquiry.

My fiancĂ©, James, and I are on a tight budget of Php 75,000 for the venue, catering, photo and video coverage.  I have to admit… It’s very challenging indeed!

Here’s a list of ideas and plans for my wedding:
-   It’s going to be a civil wedding since we have different religions
-   Black & white color motif, I want it to be a simple and elegant
-   The wedding is going to on the 3rd week of August or the 1st week of September.
    Why? My brother and James are working abroad, that the month they can come home.
-   I want it to be garden wedding but I’m open to other suggestions
-   I’m going to wear an elegant and simple cocktail dress :)
-   I want everyone to wear white on my wedding dress and white only!
-   I want a bridal brooch bouquet
-   I’m going to do my own make up
-   My mom & I are thinking of making brooch as souvenirs, especially for the sponsors
-   I’m thinking of designing my own invitations - My Very Own Domain

I'm so happy to announce that I finally got my own domain! Yey for me! :p

I got mine from Solid Hosting PH for only Php 500 a year, I was suppose to get it from Go Daddy but I don't have any credit card or PayPal. With Solid Hosting you have the option to chose a variety of payment method, you can chose from BPI, BDO, Metrobank, GCash, Western Union, LBC, Smart Money and of course PayPal.

You can check out their website for more info on their domain and hosting prices at
