Here in the Philippines, July usually marks the start of the rainy season. It’s not uncommon to have showers every few days, and because of this, Filipinos have learned to be cautious and prepare for the upcoming rains (ie. Repairs for roof leaks are usually done during the summer in preparation for the upcoming rainy season).
With expected showers and usual rain problems, would you still have your wedding during the rainy season? I honestly don’t see why you shouldn’t.
So how do you make the most out of this otherwise “gloomy” weather? Simple. Have a “rain-themed” wedding! Read more »

We all know how difficult it is to plan a wedding. The easiest way out is probably to just hire a wedding planner to do all the legwork, but I’ve always been a hands-on type of person. I don’t want to be limited to what a wedding planner tells me and just do things on my own. But as I have said in my post about wedding planners, hiring or not hiring one will really just depend on you—and the time you have.
I was lucky to have the time to plan my own wedding. That’s one of the perks of running your own home-based company—you have the luxury of scheduling your work hours, and the hours you’d like to spend planning your wedding. I did my research on the Web, and just called up and met those I even considered getting. My husband and I also visited bridal shows and expos just to be sure we’re getting the best deals possible. It doesn’t hurt to canvass as much as possible, but the thing is, it can be quite tiring.
What if you can “visit” bridal shows and expos online? Read more »
I first came across this term, “Bridezilla,” when I started planning my own wedding about two years ago while doing some research on the interwebs. The term is apparently coined from the popular monster movie, Godzilla, and the word “bride.” The “-zilla” suffix is added to the word “bride,” which would then mean something like “a monster bride.” This term is usually associated to brides who become so bitchy to everyone that others consider them “monsters”—in a figurative sense of course.
Too bad I lost the link to this online quiz which “determines” if you’re turning to be a Bridezilla or not. But, as we all know, stress can really trigger the monster in all of us. And planning your wedding, can be really stressful. I can’t tell you if you’re already becoming a Bridezilla, but here are some things that might help you not to turn into one Read more »

Privacy isn’t really something you can expect if you get a hotel at the heart of the Boracay night life. You hear loud party people till the wee hours, and that’s really isn’t a very romantic setting if you’ve planned to consummate your relationship in Boracay for the very first time Notwithstanding whatever “activities” you newlyweds would like to do in bed, party noises make it difficult to sleep—which is something you might not like if you’re there for days of rest and relaxation.
If you prefer a quiet and romantic honeymoon at the beach, you might want to consider Microtel Inns & Suites at Diniwid Beach. It’s located at the other side of Boat Station 3, just about a few minute’s walking distance from Boat Station 1. And yes, it’s quite secluded. I know this for a fact—not only was I able to sleep soundly every night we were there, but I was also able to get some work done on my laptop. Read more »
