Wedding Souvenirs

Wedding Souvenirs

These were my creations, my babies. See, brides are all about the gowns of bridesmaids, decorations and not to mention the obsession for a very nice wedding souvenir. It took me awhile to decide either to include it on the wedding package, or to purchase at a retail store. But my artistry gave me the urge to do something about it. I decided to make my own wedding souvenirs, with the help of my friends and sure we have had a lot of fun while finishing these wedding souvenirs.

Our wedding souvenirs were only intended for the Principal Sponsors. Since we’re in the modern age and wedding souvenirs could be anything. We hired EZ Capture Photo Booth, My husband do the photo lay-out (he’s a bit maarte about it). It’s less messy than doing hundreds of wedding souvenirs, less complicated. Their service was very good, they gave us a soft copy afterwards for those who had failed to get a photocopy  since it served as our wedding souvenir. Well, everybody’s happy as long as it’s on facebook!

Wedding Invitations

Wedding Invitations

At last I found them, the photos of our wedding invitations. I’ve been looking for these photos of our wedding invitations for months. I thought I’d lost it forever.

These wedding invitations were a “do-it-yourself” wedding invitations. Not your ordinary rectangular envelope, it’s a heart-shaped type of envelope. It’s a bit difficult but somehow we managed. That’s for special guests and Principal sponsors. The ticket-thingy are for friends. For people we see in day-to-day basis, who could understand that it was in a hurry. Anyway, it still looked presentable, right?

To-Do List on your Wedding Day!

Do you ever wonder what were the role of your bridesmaids, groomsmen, maid-of-honor and best man other than walking in the aisle on the wedding ceremony at the church? Well here’s some tips for you bride. I learned this knowledge from my cousin, Honey Tablo, she’s been a bridesmaid or a maid-of-honor about a lot of times. What she told me had been a lot of help and a sigh of relief (in case you did not hire a wedding organizer or a wedding planner).  Those people mentioned above can be of great help from collecting sponsor’s fee, corsage distribution for sponsors and parents to checking out materials that is needed on the church or at the reception and etcetera.

How it’s done. I told my maid-of-honor, Estrella Ortega, one of my best friends to distribute the task and materials to them. I gave her the list of tasks and to whom it will be assigned.

My to-do-list during my Wedding Day:

And at the end of the wedding ceremony, sure everyone had fun all goes well and pretty organized.

Wedding Tips

Marrying someone you love is the most beautiful thing that could ever happen in your life. A perfect wedding ceremony is nothing but a dream! But preparing for the wedding is a nightmare! Believe me, I’ve been there!
Way back in time, I wish I had the economical preparation list or the tips for the wedding expenses so we could have saved money for the later. Even a tightly budgeted wedding could still look special. Every penny counts and is very essential. But then again, I ran out of time. So hopefully you can read my blog before preparing for your wedding!
Things to do for Wedding Preparations and Payments, Here’s my lists:
For Wedding Church Expenses

If you are to be wed in a Catholic church there’s that wedding seminar and interview with a priest to attend to. Plus these expenses, I won’t quote figures as every year it seems to change;

  1.  Stole fee
  2.  Sponsor’s fee
  3. Decoration fee
  4. Liturgy
  5.  Materials to buy:
  •  Rings
  • Aras
  •  Candles
  •  Bible
  •  Envelopes for Principal Sponsors
  • For offerings

Wedding Entourage Expenses

Lucky for you if you listed can afford bridesmaid and maid honor or parents of your flower girls but If not then you will have to pay for their outfits. I would strongly suggest for you to have a first-hand gown to save money on your wedding.
Gowns for:
  • The Bride
  • Maid of Honor
  • Bridesmaid
  • Flower Girls
 Barongs for:
  • The Groom
  •  Best Man
  • Groom’s men
  • Ring bearer
  • Bible bearer
Wedding Reception Expenses

If you are really in a tight budget but would love to have a good reception hazard free and simple. Before anything else you really have to consider the service they could give you. You should have your reception in an old tested hotel wherein their food and venue package would accommodate the persons you wish to appear. Even if it is in the lowest package you can avail. 

Wedding Reception Things to Prepare:
  •  Wedding Emcee
  •  Wedding Program
  •  Wedding Soundtrack in the Reception
  •  Backdrop and wedding decorations for the Reception Area
Wedding Other Expenses
Wedding Invitation – lucky for you if you or soon-to-be husband have the gift to do photoshop or if you know someone who can do the best possible outline to your wedding invitation then you can save enough and print it by yourself.
Wedding Souvenirs– this too, I checked every store if how much it cost to have a beautiful wedding souvenir but I end up costing up a lot than I expected. Then I decided to make my own souvenir with the help of my dear friends.
  •   EZ Capture-this one serves as wedding souvenirs for the non-sponsors. This is the new trend in our generation. It is a machine that can capture several photos and printed it during the wedding w/ a nice lay-out/background that you desire.
  •  Corkage- you should consider an exemption for corkage because you never knew if someone would surprise you with a gift of lechon, drinks, some extra guests and etcetera.
  • Contact a Make-Up Artist -for you as a bride and for the whole entourage.

It’s not a 100% guarantee that if you have a perfect wedding ceremony, you will have a perfect marriage. You will have to work it out guys. Goodluck
