27 days! If I've felt pressure over the last few months, what more now that it's only 27 days before the big day!
I've had my third fitting last Saturday and I had one of my SS, my MOH and Myke with me. My SS's dress needed some more alterations while my MOH took hers home already. My gown needed only minor adjustments (hem line and straps) but Myke's suit was a bit snug. The color choice for his suit though is nice (thanks to moi) and he looked cute with his pink accessory. We still have to coordinate the fitting/ pick-up schedules of the other entourage members but I'm relying more on Myke for that. Thank God for a supportive hubby-to-be :D
Myke spent the Saturday evening with us during which he (we) had some heart to heart talk with my parents. But even before the conversation started, my mom started crying! Mama naman! I didn't want to start crying myself cos I know my mom and I could do some serious bawling duet so I began cracking up jokes. Myke said I was being makulit but I knew my parents well to know the best tactic to ease up on their 'water works'. I know that my parents would dearly miss me cos I am such a good daughter :P contrary to what my mom had said to Myke. She was telling ALL to Myke - my being lazy, hot-tempered etc. (nice one, Ma!).
This made my day :) Thanks Libz!
I wanted to move Sookie's leg a little lower.. Yum.
I am now feeling A+ after yesterday. :D
So? Updates? Hmm..
After two days of cutting, sticking and printing, our invitations have finally been assembled and are now ready for distribution. Don't get us wrong, the Wink invitations are great but we wanted to add a few additional touches :)
I'll probably post the details on my post-wedding kwento though I'd let Che, a friend and co-W @Wie have a peek on our actual invites since we have the same invitation supplier (at usisera kasi siya. Ha ha! Peace, Che!).
Some of the invites have been distributed already especially those for our colleagues. Some, which are for mailing, have been addressed and are just waiting to be dropped at the post office :)
Finally got our invites! Yay!
Myke and I picked up our invitations from Wink last Friday. We had a very pleasant transaction with them though our AE missed one of my instruction (more of that on my supplier ratings na lang) but we figured not to make a big deal out of it.
I really love our layout. My BFF said it looked really clean (aesthetically) and very cute. Cute isn't really what I envisioned it to be but I'm easy to please so I'd take any compliment gratefully :)
After that, I shopped for some specialty boards at National Bookstore where we could print our map. I couldn't find ecru colored papers that has the same shade as our invitation so I settled for pale cream ones to match the envelopes instead. I doubled up the quantity so I could use the same for our missals (less hassle and less headache on decision making. Hi hi!). That part of the shopping done, I mentally went over the things Myke and I had to attend to ASAP:
Our church coordinator sent us a text message the other day reminding us that tomorrow is the deadline of submission of some of the forms needed for wedding. As I was rooting through my files to check which forms have to be filled-up and submitted, I came upon the handouts they gave us during our pre-cana seminar.
I know you probably want to puke already with mushy, lovey-dovey entries I have here but I really wanted to share this with you cos it's a really nice and helpful read for anyone who is contemplating of marriage, is getting married (me, me, me! :D) or is already married. Anyone who is in a relationship would totally relate to this. So, read on guys.
RULES FOR A HAPPY MARRIAGE
• Never both be angry at the same time.
• Never yell at each other unless the house is on fire.
• If one of you has to win an argument, let it be your mate.
• Never bring up past mistakes.
• If you have to criticize, do it lovingly.
• Neglect the whole world rather than each other.
• Never go to sleep with an argument unsettled.
• At least once every day try to say one kind or complimentary thing to your life's partner.
• When you have done something wrong, be ready to admit it and ask for forgiveness.
• It takes two to make a quarrel and the one in the wrong is the one who does the most talking.
Stay happy. Stay in-love, everyone!
As any typical girl, I'm sometimes fickle-minded. And so, I decided to give my blog site a new look!
I've always been partial to clean, contemporary layouts so I've stuck with the white background. The banner is also simple - with a single flower design and a short catch phrase. The are a lot of pinks, I know but I really love how it stands out against white backdrop. The width of the blog is wider than my last layout. I've also used smaller-sized fonts.
The overall look is simple, feminine, chic. What do you think?
There is a little shoutout box I've put on the sidebar, basically my own version of Facebook status/ tweets. I'd be posting whatever spur-of-the-moments rants, raves, or perhaps some words of wisdom (?), some philosophical or mathematical questions (?!).. But just indulge me, please! :)
Anyway, I hope you guys like it just like I do (until I get tired of it or be struck with some creative genius).
