Accomplishments as of April 2006

Just wanna share with you my accomplishments on my one week leave in the office for my wedding preps. Hmmm… not much but at least nagkaroon ng konting linaw hehehe.

April 24, 2006, Monday

Went to my dentist for some adjustments on my braces. I’m planning to take it off before my wedding day kaya super tutok si Dra. Baditz sa teeth ko ngayon.

After that we went to Gateway Mall, para magpalamig kasi its super duper hot kaya sa labas (and Jason’s car has no tint at all kaya mainit talaga). Hinanap namin yung Suarez Wedding rings. We really don’t have plans on getting our rings kaso when we learned na initial deposit of 1,000 lang ang kailangan for the rings eh namili na kami ng design. We got ours for … secret… below 20k naman yun. And its a simple two toned ring. Nagandahan kami sa kanya. Nung una may design pang nalalaman tong si Jason eh. Nung nalaman niya na walang mold for the design he wanted and it will cost him additional charges, kinalimutan na niya yung design at pinili na yung meron sila. Hahaha G.I. kasi si Jason eh. hihihihi!

Tapos we went to Windmills and Rainforest to pay the 30% downpayment for the lock up price. Kaso si Ms. Nora wala pa sa sa place dahil hindi pa daw tapos gawin yung car niya. So we went muna sa Papemelroti.
Kaso wala sila sample Wedding Invitation sa Roces Branch. It’s cheap and simple. Very personalized. nagustuhan namin siya ni Jason. For 100 pcs of one-page invite (with envelope) cost 1,720 … oh di ba ang saya? kung may second page pa like sa entourage list etc… just add 1,520 for 100 pcs. Ang galing di ba? Nag-eemail na ako ngayon sa papemelroti. Madami pa ako questions sa kanila eh. I’m also planning to get them for our thank you cards and “just married” tarpauline. Meron silang two designs na kailangan pa namin pagpilian eh. hmmm… ano kaya?

Balik nanaman kami ng Windmills. Pinatanggal na naim yung sa cake since we’re planning to get a minicake tree. Then we paid the 30% downpayment na. All in all 50% na nadownpayment namin sa Windmills. At least di ba medyo ok na kami dun.

April 25, 2006 … Tuesday

We went to Ms. Emily Uy of Sugarbox in Sta. Cruz. Hindi ko akalain ang taas pala ng shop niya … hiningal ako hahaha. Very accommodating naman si Ms. Emily. Saka sabi niya I look like Jolina Magdangal daw … hahaha si Ms. Emily talaga oh. On with the cake tasting. Masarap ang cakes niya. Pero ang pinili namin assorted except chocolate. Ayaw namin ng chocolate cake ni Jason saka masyado ng common hihihi. She made 4 designs for our 75 pcs minicake. Silang dalawa ni Jason nag-conceptualize ng color. While me just eating the last pieces of the cake (takaw ko grabe!). Since Jason is an Architect and I’m an Architecture graduate din, she said yung groom topper naka-hard hat. Kaso ano kaya representation ko? gusto ko sana ako yung draftsman ang dating hahaha! may drafting table ba! tapos may pencil sa tenga nyahahaha! Already paid the 50% downpayment.

Then we went to Ysabelle Fashions. Kaso wala naman yung store designer. Kaya hindi rin ako nakapagpagawa ng gown ko sa kanila. Sa Bridal Factory naman, nasa abroad si Ms. Rhoda kaya di din kami nagkita. First week of May pa siya babalik ng Pinas. Eh surely nasa Laoag na ako nun kaya I texted her na I’ll meet her before May ends.

After that we went to SM Manila to meet Mr. Rex Rosario of Flora@eleven_01 for our entourage flowers. He quote us na pasok sa budget. Ang dami pang freebies. We paid our downpayment and booked him. And since we’re the first to booked him for October, may free services pa hanggang church, dadagdagan daw nila yung flower arrangements ng church pag medyo kulang sa dating yung arrangement ng Twin Hearts. Sila na din maghehelp mag-pin or magbigay sa mga entourage ng mga flowers nila. Ok din kausap si Mr. Rex … and very honest siya na ayaw niya yung design ng buttonierre na napili ko. Hahaha loko talaga si Mr. Rex.

April 25, 2006 … Wednesday

My MOH and cousin, Bing, and I went to Quiapo to buy materials for our ceremonial cord, accents for our pens, wishes inserted on our cake and kissing bells. Naaliw kami masyado, pati yung para sa kakikayan namin eh binili na din namin … medyo malaki nagastos namin pero pareho kami nakangiti na lumabas ng Wellmanson at iniimagine na ang itsura ng cord ko.

Habang papunta kami sa sakayan ng Divisoria, nakita namin yung Maning’s Lace Shop. Pumasok kami at inquire kami on the wedding packages. 20k ang wedding package niya. Then I asked kung entourage lang, sabi ni Mr. Willie So ibibigay nalang daw niya sa akin ranging from 1,500 to 2k per gown. Uy ang bait naman medyo great deal na din ha. Baka nga mabawasan pa kasi walang beadwork yung sa mga abay ko eh. Maganda lang ang mga cut nila at iba-iba ang design. Walang pareho.

Nagpunta na kami ng Divisoria to buy the kissing bells. I only bought 75 pieces. Nakalimutan ko nga bumili ng party poppers eh. Sa sobrang pagod na namin ni insan, nakalimutan talaga namin hahaha. Wait nalang for the photos ng DIY namin ni insan.
