I’m finally beginning the process of revamping this blog (I know, I know, it’s been soooooooo long!), and part of the plans is making you, our readers, play a part in it!
I started My Filipino Wedding during my bride-to-be months in the hopes of easing the pre-wedding jitters and help others in their preps in the process.But here’s the thing… I’ve been married for five years already. Though I’ve been attending the wedding celebrations of my friends every now and them, it’s still not the same when you’re the one who’s actually getting married. The story and experience are different.
So, for the upcoming revamp of this blog… I thought it best to open the site for contributions: stories of real-life brides/grooms-to-be and newly-weds. If you’d like to share your experiences before (engagement), during (planning), or after your wedding, simply contact me (Gail Villanueva) through kutitots(at)gmail(dot)com and let’s talk. Even if you’re not a good writer but would still like to share, just indicate it in your email so I can come up with questions for a feature about you
See you guys soon! In the mean time, please add our newly-created Facebook page for updates regarding the revamp and for other concerns.
It’s been almost a year since my last post. Sorry about that, I’ve been pretty busy with my day job and other blogs. That’s why I’m opening this blog for contributions… If you’re interested, feel free to send me an email!
Funny, the first post I’ll made after such a long hiatus would be this. But you see, something like this shouldn’t really happen — there are so many ways it could have been avoided, and yet, it still happened.
Last December, my husband and I attended the wedding of our friends, Aileen and Jay. As a guest, we were very impressed with the way their wedding turned out. Not surprising really, as Aileen and Jay were very hands-on in planning their wedding. Everything went smoothly, save for one: their bridal car did not show up. Read more »
On March 28 and 29 (this coming weekend), Martha Stewart Weddings Philippines, the first international edition of the leading magazine resource for every bride, will be holding a bridal fair at the East Pavilion of the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
Aside from the usual exhibit booths of wedding suppliers, there will also be a series of talks by experts and some big names in the wedding industry soon-to-wed couples will surely appreciate. From being a “perfect” hostess to tips on diamond buying, the series of talks will run by the hour in the afternoon of the fair dates. There will also be a fashion show featuring the collection of Federick Peralta on Saturday at 6PM, while Sunday’s activities will culminate with a raffle where attendees can get a chance to win prizes from exhibitors and sponsors, and a trip for two to the United States.
To be part of this bridal fair, simply present a copy of the March 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Weddings Philippines or by registering online to get free entrance.
When I first asked Francis, owner of Blue Water Day Spa, about what they can offer for brides-to-be, he didn’t hesitate and told me that bridal showers are a common thing at his family’s spa. Not surprising, considering how stressful wedding planning to be. A day at the spa with the girls is a sure way for a bride-to-be to take a breather and relax.
Recently, Blue Water Day Spa opened its first spa movie theater in Ortigas Avenue. This trendy new spa can accommodate 55 people at a given time, equipped with a Spa Theater, Couple’s Rooms, Common Rooms, Locker Rooms, and a Sauna. The Spa Theater, by itself, can accommodate 28 people at the same time. Read more »
