The Wedding Day

It was 2 years in the making and finally, there it was…as they always say, nothing will be perfect. This one had so many flaws…and unexpected sad news. At the end of the day, all that mattered was Kenny and I. And it was magical.

Hen Party

A few days back, my friend from college invited me for dinner with the rest of the girls. It has been a while since we had dinner, after 2 of them got busy with their babies and the other with her work sched. And so that day came. She called and asked me how we'll get there, and decided we just take uber. She asked that we meet at her place, which was just technically behind mine.
I got there at 5-ish as she said. And that we we're supposed to meet the others at 6. Why did I not dress up for this dinner? I had no idea it was the party, until I guess we got to the place. I didn't want to assume so I played it cool. Had coffee with the girls, who didn't want to order yet. I thought this was dinner? Okay, I knew what was happening. This place had a separate room, like for functions, which had a glass wall. So right when we were entering the place, I saw my highschool friends.
Then this waiter asked me to wear this dress. Oh the dress! The one I told my MOH to let me wear for my bachelorette party. This, I did not know how they got. I told my MOH long before, to make sure I get to wear the dress again, had it sewn for the prenup shoot and wherelse can I wear it? So I mentioned that she tell me when my party is so I can dress up. This was really unexpected. I wasn't prepared, I mean, really.
And there it was. It was lovely. Highschool friends and college friends were there, all the closest ones. Of course my cousin and her mom. I had fun. I loved it. Just what I wanted.

Envelope Seal

Because I wanted to be hipster cool with our invites…and, well this thing is awesome, I had our monogram customized for wax seal-ing. I am in love. 

Had this made through iSeal custom wax stamp. Just message them on facebook. This customised seal was worth PhP2300, with (3) free wax sticks – colour of your choice. Extra wax sticks would cost PhP 90. But when I got extras, they gave it to me at PhP 88 each. 😊 shipping to the metro costs PhP 145. 
Been enjoying this seal-making. Maybe I will include this in all my mails 😆

So I improvised on some things. Works well though. For melting, I just bought this thing you use to melt scented candles or whatever you call it lol. And just a teaspoon for mixing/pouring. Both from Japan Home.

When you’ve found the one…

I wanted to look “elvish” (as in LOTR elvish royalty) on my wedding day and I really wanted to buy a circlet. Found some on etsy but it’s a bit costly for me (starts PHP2000). Given that I am on a budget, I cannot buy it😣

Divisoria was crazy full of head pieces like the ones the Kalyeserye lolas have and greek goddesses I suppose. But none of them were the one. 

Until this week, we were in Trinoma and passed by EGG. And OMG yes! Here it is…

Gosh I’m in love with it. 😍
