Looking back: Wedding Preparations

Since this month is our wedding month, I decided to feature random posts about our wedding and how married life has been for us.

I got an e-mail the other day about someone stumbling upon my blog while looking for ideas for a pink and brown wedding. It seems that is what our wedding was known for, especially at Weddings@Work, a online community I joined in while I planning my wedding.

I planned everything online, 3 months before the wedding day. And mind you, our wedding was out of town. It helped a lot that our wedding day fell on a weekday so getting wedding suppliers was easier.

And believe it or not, I spent more time working on the details of our wedding day than on my wedding gown. I finalized my wedding gown on May 15 and had it made two weeks after. And our wedding was on June 24. There was a reason for this – I never really made an effort to lose weight so deciding on a wedding gown that wouldn’t make me look fat nor motherly was a challenge.

In the end I decided on this, I wanted everything to be just like it even the matching heels .

In the end, my wedding couturier was able to make me look like a bride. With the matching shoes, only with a big custom-made Swarovski crystal flower as an accent.

This is perfect for a garden wedding though:

Credit Card Comparison

Credit cards are something that can either help or break you. One should know how to handle credit and use it wisely. Almost everyone I know has one and while most of them find it helpful and still be free from huge debt, there are others who are way deep into credit card debt. Compare Cash Back Credit Cards before applying for one. I feel that one should have the credit card that would work best for him whether it be for the rewards, air miles, or even the bank associated with the card. One should compare credit cards so that they will know what could be best for them. CreditCardSearchEngine.com is one of the Internet’s longest running sites for online credit card comparison. It allows consumers, business and students alike to search, compare, and apply for all types of credit card offers, everything from low interest and reward card to cards for people with bad to average credit.

The pink and brown wedding.

It’s actually flattering.

I have had over 200-250 hits everyday for the last couple of months. And you know which posts were most viewed? My wedding preps posts. The google search words were related to my wedding (Dangwa, Alex Franco cakes, wedding preps, Caleruega, Sonya’s, PINK AND BROWNdo you know how many searched for it? 89!!!), and yes, Ive got to thank Mimi and Karl for referring many visitors too. (They’ve got a new site, check it out!). And, of course, w@w.

 17 months later and the happiest day of our lives are still helping others make their own dream wedding come true.

Edil promised we would celebrate our 5th year with another wedding. Given where we are right now, that might be unlikely. But you bet this wouldnt stop me from planning our 10th, hehehe. And yes, it would still have PINK on it :). (and Mimi and Karl will still be covering it!)

Side kwento:
One of my officemates sent the link from our wedding pictures to her friend who was getting married. The friend’s officemate squealed when she saw Edil. It turns out he was one of her crushes in Mapua High and when he went to college in Mapua. LOL. Sige na nga, gwapo na nga asawa ko :D He is looking for a job as a Mechanical Engr (but not a board passer). Any suggestions? We are currently finding a way for him to go out of the country first since I cant afford to test my waters since I still have a baby to nurse and take care of. Ang hirap na talaga ng buhay sa Pinas.
