Supplier review

Being a member of the Weddings at Work e-group definitely helped us prepare for the wedding. One of the traditions in the group is for members to post a review of how their suppliers performed during their wedding. The review below was e-mailed to the group at the start of the year, with each supplier…

Going vintage

We originally booked this, the 1947 Jaguar, at the Wedding Expo. Streetline offered a pretty neat package, bundling two MB vans with this baby. It actually took us more than 20 minutes of negotiating—the vans will be used to pick up people from different locations—before we paid the reservation fee. Two days after, I get…

Next time you’ll see us on the telly

Access to the Internet and a UP Diliman graduate. Those, Buddy said, were the main traits of the couples (brides) that book his services. In my case, I initially checked out suppliers with websites to save me (and them potentials) time. If, by judging on what’s showcased in their sites, I don’t like their work…

I won’t be walking down the aisle in greige after all

James said am so galing and coordinated, preparing our wedding sans a planner. What I didn’t tell him was I get all the help from W@W. Ü Bry and I have decided to just get James do all the girls’ dresses, save for the mothers and principal sponsors. My mom still hasn’t decided where she…

A change will do you good

So says Sheryl Crow. We’re (I’m) thinking of changing photographers. Yeah, I know how ecstatic I was when I said we had one already, but… I’ve been seeing a lot of really good pictures done by photographers that charge half of what Pilar does in the W@W e-group. If we can get the same quality…

60 minutes with Veluz

Now I understand why a lot of brides-to-be gush so much after meeting Veluz and Niko. These are probably two of the warmest people I have ever met. They are just so nice! Plus, Veluz doesn’t scrimp on dishing out practical advice. Case in point? Shoes. Now everyone who knows me relatively well enough will…

Frustrations

I met my dream designer a few weeks after I got engaged. James is just amazing. I flipped my copy of Metro Weddings to show him the design that led me to him. It was pure luck, I guess, that my brother knew him, having worked together on several projects. I showed him some pegs…

Couple of nutcases, we are

Scouting for a good photographer was not on our to-do list, initially, because we thought we had that covered. But when my cousin told me her hubby would not be able to do our wedding, we immediately set out to look for the best within our budget. We saw Pilar Tuason’s work at the first…
