looking forward

a little more than 10 mos to go, and so far so good with the wedding preps. Well at least I can say it is. i think i'm on the right track and there is no need whatsoever to panic. Unfortunately I really cannot be as hands on with the preps as I want to be what with acads and work eating up all my time. I look forward to the summer vacation so I can focus on wedding preps! whew! a few more months and I'll be over my first year of MBA. Time really flies. Sooner or later it will be december and I will be Mrs. Jennifer Maravillo-Tabios! Wow!!!! Nice ring to it, don't you think?
this afternoon i went to dangwa and finally met the man behind the names of Boy Mahusay and Jon Macadaeg. What nice gentlemen. I'm really looking forward to getting him as my florist. He quoted me Php4,000 for the whole entourage package, discounted from Php5,000. I think that's good already considering that I'll have tulips in my bouquet!!!! Yipeeeee!!!!
oh well, tabs is a little tampo because we didn't meet at Mu. Oh well, guess I'd better check on him again. :-)
will post when I have more updates!!!

updates! updates!

whew!!! finally have a little bit of time to update (myself) of my wedding preps. its a good thing we were able to accomplish a bit more these past few days. And now I rest a bit since we've chosen the major suppliers already! yipeeeeee!!!!
So here are my updates:
1. Church - paid P2000 dp
- to accomplish other requirements later in the year
2. Reception -finally decided on booking Windmills and Rainforest! Yipee!!!! I really, really like this place. Its a bit off budget but nevertheless we considered it. Pumayag na rin si tabs kasi konti nga lang naman difference niya sa Patio Ibarra (which was my first choice before kaya lang yung smaller ballroom lang pala kame pwede, if we want to get the bigger ballroom we will have to get more guests, which is out of the budget na). Windmills has a nice cozy feel in it that we (tabs, me, and MOH) really liked.
Grabe ang pagod ko dito. Last sat i had a mega reception and hotel hunting. I went to Dulcinea (not nice), Century Imperial Suites (closed ang banquet office), Hotel Rembrandt (ok lang, mura ang rooms), Great Eastern Hotel (the place is ... ok lang), Patio Ibarra (nice place, though nakaka-pressure kasi ba naman magtataas na daw ng rates!), and finally to Windmills. As usual, kung san huli yun ang best. Medyo may budget constraint nga lang sa Windmills kasi I have to outsource pa rin everything, unlike sa Patio Ibarra na may free na Sound System, bridal car, hotel room. Pero ganda talaga ng place. I think the extra effort to look into the other details naman will pay off (mejo panic lang ng konti sa expenses... hehe).
Will call Ms. Rieza today to pencil book, tapos will pay dp sana within January or first week Feb.
3. Photo-video - Finally chose ePhotoGallery. So happy with the tandem of Ellen and Edwin Tuyay. Mas easy sila to talk to, very accomodating, plus ang dami nilang binigay sa kin na freebies. Will have to follow up na pala on the draft contract and dp, just the same, sobrang feel ko na special ako with them!

Other details inaasikaso ko pa, pero essentially ok na ko with the majors. Will just have to work on the smaller details naman na sobrang dami. Next update ko na lang yun. hehehe...
