Countdown: 100 days
Can you believe it’s only 100 days til November 29? Because it took me around 2 hours to realize that time just flew like that and we’re on our last 100 days of preparation. A little over 3 months to go, it’s crazy!!! Although the big day is almost here, I’m not really panicking or anything like that, I always feel like peace of mind is one of the perks of having a wedding in the province, everything is so laid back.
Anyway, a few weeks ago, we met with our photographer Efjay Deleon to sign our contract and finalize the details for our engagement shoot (which will be next week, by the way). I’ve been talking to Efjay for a few months now and I like how light it is to talk to him. I just feel very lucky that we found a young talented artist like him that is soooo affordable, I mean I think his rates are way under than what he can actually deliver (I maybe overselling him, but he’s very very talented in my opinion). I can’t wait to work with him on our engagement shoot and on the wedding day
That same week we also met Marco Magdaluyo of Photo Edge who will do our wedding video coverage. I believe we got another lucky pick with him Another very talented and kind artist. He let us see some of their other works and we signed our contract. I am excited for our wedding coverage, I’m pretty sure we’re in good hands I love his song choices in SDEs, and although I have a particular song in mind that I want to use for ours, I decided to leave it all to Marco. He knows exactly what fits the mood of the video
Last August 15, we met my choice of couturier, Mr. Paul Manuel. Again, a very nice pick in my opinion. Aside from his unbelievably affordable quotation on my peg dress, he was very easy to talk to, and you just got to love him for being happy and gay. We’re scheduled to have my first fitting on September 12. I am beyond excited!! I know it’s quite late that we’re only fitting now, but he promised me that my dress (and Dan’s suit) will be done in a month, maximum. I’ll also be choosing my accessories from his atelier Here is my peg gown, by the way. I wanted him to tweak some to fit me better (as I’m not as skinny as this model). Photo from here.
We were also able to get our wedding rings last Sunday. I think I will have to do a separate blog post on our wedding ring hunt
And lastly, I got my wedding shoes <3 I know, I know, 3 months is still probably a long time for the small details like shoes, but I have this vision of how I want my shoes to be. I have a few requirements — I want it to be a little more bongga than my dress, since as you can see my dress will be very plain and simple, and I want it to be at most a 2-in heel. I don’t want to wear sky high heels since I love how my height pairs with Dan’s height. When I saw this particular shoes, that was it, I was sold! And best of all, it’s very inexpensive.
I feel like we’ve done a lot with the preps this month, and tomorrow will actually be the day of the official pamamanhikan
Love love. <3
