It's been a productive month so far. I already booked a lot of supplier considering our wedding is still months away.
Venue is one of the major suppliers in my list. We have visit a lot of venues around Pasay but Le Pavillion was the one that stand out the most. Sure, its not as elegant as Blue Leaf Filipinas, nor as charming like that of 1Esplanade. But its one of the most affordable that's near our church and its big enough for 200 guests. (I hate cramped space!)
The whole place has the capacity of 1,000 guests for banquet seating. Since 1,000 is to big we only opt for half venue which is good for 350 guests.
For my Bridal Gown we went to Divisoria. I was not that particular when it comes to gown since I will be using it for only a day. What I have in mind is flowy and lot of tulle that can be used again and again for cocktails. We went to Mark Brides (I was a fan of his work way and been browsing his facebook page) and I love what I saw. Mark/Sarsi suggested that serpentine or mermaid gown won't do well with my body type so they suggested that I try the princess gown instead. I immediately love how its accentuate my waist. I won't be posting any of my fittings here since it will be a surprise. What's more they give me a fair price for the gown that I also booked them for my entourage.
Every bride wants to look beautiful on the wedding day, I am no exception. But aside from having that bridal glow I also want it not to break the bank kind of deal. I stumbled upon Val Villarin while browsing a wedding website "Bride and Breakfast" and he has a lot of good reviews from wawies (a wedding community in Philippines) mainly because his style are fresh and not so cakey. Also he's using airbrush so I think that's a plus. I know lately that he has a lot of negative feedback due to overbooking but I am hoping that it will be resolve in due time. Anyway, here are some of the works of Mama Val (as he is fondly called).

Wedding coordinator can even break or make your wedding. At first I was skeptical about having a coordinator because it means another expenses on our belt. (I even considered the sisters of Labsie to be our wedding coordinator but I immediately squashed the idea because both sisters have kids and they won't be able to concentrate on the wedding preparations.) My first choice was Imbitado Events but I wasn't quick enough to reserve my date so I chose Kiss the Girl Event instead. They have good reviews on wawies and I also take time to research the team and they didn't disappoint with what I've seen so far.

For reception Lights and Sounds we chose Rejectkrew by Elmer Bautista.

For our LED wall projector, we availed the service of Metrotech.
We still has a lot of suppliers to booked such as rings, prenup stylist and flowers. Hope we'll be able to settle everything before the year end.
