Oh My Gown :-)

grabbed from yahoo images
Choosing the right wedding dress is one of the most exciting phases in wedding planning. And believe it or not, the bride's wedding dress is also one of the most anticipated by guests so it's really important to choose a wedding gown we love. Ever since we planned about this wedding 2-3 years back, i've started digging on magazines and websites for gorgeous wedding gowns. The seemingly limitless options is very much overwhelming. I had a hard time choosing the right dress for me. I found them all, gorgeous!

With several choices on my list, i narrowed them down to few choices until i come up with my most loved wedding dress. What design or style do i have? Hmm.. well, that would remain a secret as for now. I want it to be as exciting as it should be. I want our guests (including our family and friends) to anticipate what would my wedding dress would look like. Isn't it more exciting and fun? One thing i assure you, my wedding dress is so ME; girly, sophisticated and fun-loving!

Promise, i'll share it with you once the wedding is over.. *giggles

So what do you think my wedding dress would be like?

Have fun guessing!

Early Prenup Shoot

Date: March 28, 2012
Venue: La Mesa, Ecopark
Photographer: Nice Print Photography
Hair and Make-up: By ME

I know we had it much earlier than expected. (Big day is Dec). Well, if you haven't known yet, hubby works abroad and he only had a few months vacation then will be off to work again. So unfortunately we don't have much time if we plan to have it later on. So this is the perfect time, not to mention, hubby's scheduled flight will only be a few days away :(

So there, we packed our bags with all our stuffs (outfits, shoes, makeups, accessories etc) then headed to Eco Park in Fairview, Quezon City. Hubby and I were a newcomer. We never been to ecopark before. Heard that it's a great place for family picnic, well it really is. Giant and old trees were abundantly over the place where it feels so refreshing and truly one with nature.

The shoot itself was exhausting since we're exposed in a broad daylight yet it really is a FUN experience. We seems like true models in the act with several observers on the verge.. hehe It took us 8hrs for the shoot. We had so much fun shooting that we kept the time unnoticed and its even nicer that our photographer didn't mind about the time either :)

That same day, Niceprint gave as a cd of the raw pictures. I was so happy that i can't wait to see the result of our today's shoot. Yipeee!

Because of my happiness, i would like to share with you a glimpse of our prenup shoot.


 What do you think??

Here's what you need to bring for the shoot:
- Outfits (costumes)
- Extra footwear
- Accessories/ Props
- Hand towels (to wipe away those sweats)
- Extra clothes
- Water (and more water)
- Make-up kit (in case you don't have an hmua for that day)
- Extra money (for entrance fees and food)
- Bring-in foods or baon (para mas makatipid kesa bumili pa sa labas)

** Ecopark entrance fee: 40/head, 20/head (if quezon city resident)

Happy preps!

I chanced upon a  friend's make-up booth at the fair at SMX last march- Joan Uy-Dacio. I haven't booked an hmua yet because I want her to do my make up on my wedding day. I already told her about it and she agreed. She even gave me a friendly discount :=)

Booked: Photo and Video

Finally! We now have our Photo and Video supplier. Booked them at the recent bridal fair that we've attended. Among all the P/V suppliers and booths at the fair, Macromedia Photography got me interested. Aside from their affordable rates, they got lots of freebies :) Upon browsing their sample albums, we've noticed that they got a nice work. I have a good feeling that they'll make our wedding pictures beautiful. Lei is so nice and accommodating. So then and there, we made our reservation to blocked the date.We availed of their promo rates with free SDE's, prenup and so much more :)

Happiness! One major supplier down.

On Choosing the Right Wedding Dress

Choosing a wedding dress is one of the most exciting phases of wedding planning. Every soon-to-be bride is excited thinking about finding the right wedding dress, where to shop or who's designer to get.  Here is some of the information that will help you find the perfect wedding dress for your big day.

When to Start

Get started as early as you can so that you can devote ample time for the fittings. Wedding dresses are usually custom made and hence, need several alterations before it fits perfectly. Though some may prefer ready-to-wear, off- the-rack, or hand-me-down wedding dresses. In case you have less time for custom made, opt for something simple.

First Step

- Think about your style and imagine how your wedding dress would be like. Write down few adjectives that best describes how you want to look. Ex. vintage, sophisticated, sexy, royal, elegant etc.

- Determine which design element will complement your body. Specify what you absolutely do not want in your wedding dress. Ex. ball gown silhouette or beading.

- Set your budget and stick to it. A general guideline is to alot 10% of your overall wedding budget.

Choose the time of day and formality of your wedding. Keep in mind your theme (if you have) and the season.

Next Step

- Scout for a wedding gown designer or couturier. Call and make appointments. Take note about the prices and wedding dress descriptions.

- Book your gown designer/ couturier. Ensure that you sign the contract and got the receipt for payments.

- Have your designer take your body measurements. Bust, waist, hips, length. Decide if you want a long train or veil.

Here Comes the Fittings

- Schedule for first fitting along with a sharp-eyed and honest friend.

- You need to bring the shoes that you are going to wear or with a similar heel height you plan to wear on your wedding day. See if you can walk or move comfortably.

- Schedule more fittings until the wedding dress is a perfect fit.

- Remind your designer about the date of delivery.


- Try to maintain your weight as possible. Better yet, forget about the diet, wear that dress, girl.. don't let the  dress wear you!

Happy preps!
