"Happy marriages begin when we marry the ones we love, and they blossom when we love the ones we marry." -Tom Mullen

Hello Universe!

Welcome ... henceforth, will be mostly about Our Story and hopefully more decades of stories ahead of us,
in this now-life-long journey of marriage, and yeah, maybe that includes all the bling-blings in between. =)

About 10 yrs of long (and sometimes twisted) engagement...then just got civilly married in 2009...
and we just did it again in a church, exactly a year after --- last 28th of July 2010 @ 3pm
---a dream come true vintage themed wedding!!! Hooray!!!

Homebound Preps

Off I pack up (yeah just me alone) this coming Friday, Mar 26 until Mar 30, 2010 to Cebu.
127 days to go before our wedding-to-be!!!
Apparently, the rest of the world is panickin' but not yet me. LOL!

So yeah, it's a sudden trip I need to take to attend on urgent matters to personally meet dear suppliers with my dearest wedding planner/friend Tisha Sanchez-Cue.

On top of my to-do-lists:
  • Ocular visit to Vistamar and work with all the styling together with our florist
  • Find me a "miracle" designer/dressmaker
  • Food tasting if feasible
  • Decide on Videographer (am serious on the super8mm!!!)
  • Checklisting on Church document requirements
  • Meet with officiant priest
  • Trial make up
  • And etcetera etcetera ......
In between times, I hope I can sneak out and get sunkissed by the beach!!! Teehee!
And can't wait to eat 'saging and ginamos' and 'binignit'!!!!
Wooooooooooooohhhh!!! =)

See you soon Seybuuu!!!

Where's the map?

Found this too adorable doodled map included in a couple's invitation card.
Why, oh my, I want ONE for Ours,too!!!!

I can ask the hubby to do so. Or I can attempt vainly myself. =)

The (Wishful) Ring Bearer

oh gawwwd.im weak-kneed. to have a dog as a ring bearer.

if only mine too were truly trained. ♥ ♥ ♥

Thanks to friend Janjan Perez for sharing the link thru Buzz.

Just one of those REALLY inspiring moments.

Come to think of it, I hadn't even thought who'll be our ring bearer actually.
Oh, later on with that. I'm swooning at this!!! =)

Knock knockin' the checklist....

*cough cough*

and crashin' out more items as some of my friends have been askin' how're the plans going...so here:
  • Book Chapel
  • Check Church requirements (e.g. pre-cana, baptismal records...)
  • Decide on Officiant
  • Reserve the Reception Place
  • Decide on Official Photographers
  • Decide on Videographer (Oooh this apparently is one of the hardest part, hmmm..gave up jason magbanua & mayad studios...why, hello, we're not filthy rich! AHahaha... so it almost made me think, nevermind the videography... but any idea on super 8mmfilmmakers? woodstock 70's style haha....hmm idea from somewhere but no clue if how it's gonna cost us)
  • Put together entourage & finalize guest list (100 should be intimate enough!)
  • Decide on Food Catering (prospects in place at least...hope's there's a sushi bar , onegaiii! hehe)
  • Find my wedding dress/gown (my fervent prayers to find it soon)
  • Find my hubby's suit (surely not a problem as it seems)
  • Find our wedding shoes (flats please?)
  • The bridal car BIKE!!! *grin*
  • Bridesmaids or no bridesmaids? (still contemplating...)
  • Decide on wedding cupcakes design & baker (mountain of cupcakes yeyy + my simpson cake to fit somewhere hihi)
  • Florists (origami if budget fails heheh)
  • HMUA
  • Envision the wedding stationeries, save-the-dates, place cards, etc (Yeyyy i have a faery friend to help me on this - Dimplesss!!!)
  • Snap station (polaroid? holga? vintage camwhoring weeeeeeeeeh)
  • Souvenirs (disposable cameras or what? oh i only wish)
  • Jazz band? (with bossa,too) --- will weed this out and find another option
There there. No panic mode yet. And I hope my wedding planner/friend will feel the same. Hmmmm.
Crashed out items means they're considered/taken cared of/already on top of my head blah blah....., booked/reserved and all we need to do is figuring out on putting them all together very soon.

I think I'm making it sound so easy. Tsk.

Get in Wedding-Day-Shape!

I was going over my Knot.com's checklist reminders again and glad to have marked off few major items that were taken cared off... *a little clap from you please and hugs to my wedding coordinator of course*...but there's this one teeny item that made me dread the day. Hahahaha

"Start taking better care of yourself. Get in wedding day shape ..."

(obviously this is not my tummy....hahaha)

And I smirked, "Yeah right!" Ahahahaha

Well, yeah I better be.

So far, I've been catchin' up with my jogging, biking and yoga last few weeks ----however, consistency is just where I flunked. Teehee!!!

But I am getting serious a bit now. I dare myself --- March will be a better start over to lose a few pounds.
*cross fingers*

And hey, this tasks goes for the husband too!!! So I hope it's gonna be a teamwork! Tsk tsk!

Recycle Recycle Recycle

Since we're aiming for really (hopefully) eco-friendly wedding so yes, we wanna abuse the word - RECYCLE.

And while I've been tryin' to de-clutter my head, I found another Boho Bride to be and found her site inspirational,too.

For instance, these recycled Coffee Cans:

And here's more earthy-madness:

And oooohhh DIY alternatives:

I imagine them quiet eccentric so will be stirring more RECYCLE ideas this month, that includes signage here and there courtesy with husband's yet amateur painting skills (see the Just Married sign in our bike shot in the header, yep yep, he did that!!! Teehee!) *wink wink*

Oh, I have a feeling this will be easy-breezy for our wonderful florist team,too. *winks to Tisha*
