I just realized that wedding preparations can really be a hassle especially if you're working on a tight budget. Even if you try not to spend so much, with the price of most commodities increasing almost every week, you will still be needing a "bigger" budget. And of course, there are some things that you would want to get/use for your wedding but have to forego because it's expensive! Harr... Oh well.. It's still an enjoyable experience.
At this time, we already have a church and reception venue. The wedding will be held at Our Lady of Consolation Parish in Mira-Nila Homes, Tandang Sora, Quezon City. I chanced upon this church when I was viewing a sample wedding album. The altar is blue and it has a big statue of the Virgin Mary at the center (even bigger than the crucifix). Al and I loved the church when we first saw it during our ocular, including my mom. Then, we checked out their reception venue, Bulwagang Recoletos. Since this parish is owned by the Augustinians, the reception venue is part of the seminary. It's also nice and has an "historic" feel. Anyway, I attached pictures of the place and the church.
We have only booked a few of our suppliers and we're still scouting for others. Here they are:
On-the-Day Coordination and Host: Loi Villarama and His Angels
Photo-Video: Parker Shot Photography (JR Sebastian)
Souvenirs: Studio for Fun by Konsepto (On-site Souvenirs)
We have yet to book our caterer and wedding cake/cupcake supplier. Our wedding theme will be a "movie premier night", much like a Hollywood theme, only that this is a movie happening in real-time, hehehe...
