Unique preps: Spa movie theatre pre-wedding party

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.

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.

Online Bridal Shows

This is a sponsored post, but this is one of those sponsored posts that you’d also find interesting.

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 »



Sweeten your wedding with personalized candies

Halloween is just around the corner, and I can’t help but remember the bucketfuls of candy my sister and I used to gather after Trick or Treat. Who said you can’t have candy (and personalized ones at that) on your wedding?

Personalized Chocnut candies

I have always been fond of Chocnut, a local candy distributed here in the Philippines. It has a flavor of peanuts and chocolate at the same time. I just really like it, so much so that I named one of my favorite dogs, Choknat! Read more »



Dessert alternatives

If you have a sweet tooth like me and my husband, you’d probably want more than the menu choices your caterer will provide you. Caterers usually have set packages for weddings, and the dessert choices are usually very limited. Unless you choose the more expensive wedding packages, you’d probably end up with simple desserts like assorted fruits or buko pandan salad.

The best way for you to spice up the desserts you will serve your guests is to add some of these dessert alternatives. Some of them sound pretty expensive, but really, most aren’t—you just need to get the right supplier 🙂 Read more »
