Our Wedding Bands

For our wedding bands, we want something like Tiffany & Co.'s classic knife-edge wedding bands: It was kinda difficult to find a nice knife-edge wedding bands locally because the style is not that "popular' here.  We tried looking at Goldenhills and My Diamonds but they don't have it. During the bridal fair at Megamall in July last year, we came across two shops ... READ MORE

Escort Card Ideas

In two weeks'  time, I plan to start on our escort cards.Escort cards are a must for me as I want our seat plan to be followed as much as possible.    While we will have a registration sheet for the guests (so we can determine the actual head count later in the reception), we do not have that many coordinators to usher the guests to their ...

Wedding Nice to Have’s

I have my own list of nice-to-have's for our wedding.   But these are not the expensive things you can imagine (like a Bellaroca Honeymoon, a popular P/V supplier, Tiffany wedding rings, etc.). The things I want are actually simple things, which, up to this day, I still can't decide if we will incorporate in the wedding or not.   Some are not locally made ... READ MORE

Trying Out Chicboy along Jupiter Street

My brother has been prodding us to try Chicboy with branches at Jupiter Street and in front of Makati City Hall (if you're from Makati). We went there today for our lunch and at around 11 am, the store is not packed with the weekend lunch crowd.   I guess this is the best time to have lunch there, as the place is always packed full (according to my brother). Food orders ... READ MORE
