Yesterday was another one of Manny Pacquiao's fights and that meant long intervals between technical support seekers calls. I was used to reading beauty blogs that haven't been blocked by the company's firewall during free time. However, there was a scarcity of new posts...Maybe because it was a weekend? Maybe because Manny won?
I turned to browsing Filipino weddings instead and came across a handful of gorgeous wedding photos! However it dawned on me, that having a wedding such as the ones I saw from Mimi+Karl, ErronOcampo, Cherryblocks and The Color Artistry would have to be very expensive. And to be honest, I wouldn't want to spend that much on something that's only going to happen in a matter of hours.
Forgive me, but I don't intend to bash couples whose budget for their weddings was something I can only dream of winning in lottery. Even I have always dreamed of having such a wedding when I was younger. But since I messed up a bit and ended up with a mediocre (but extremely happy...) life, I'd rather spend a couple of years' savings on my daughter's education, a business, car/s and real estate.
Ergo, I think I've decided, that I'm going to either have a civil wedding, or a very simple church wedding with only close relatives and friends as guest. It will be sooo simple that our photographers will be our DSLR friends (good thing the gadget had been a fad...), our outift designers would be myself with the help of my would-be-sister-in-law, my make up artist would be myself (Everyone else would have to be their own make up artists too, unless they'll be willing to pay a professional!), invitation and souvenir maker would be the computer, and the caterer would be my aunt and brother.
I don't know how this is going to materialize, or if the wedding will be something to remember. What I do know is that my marriage to seal the bond I have with the man I love will be a blast.
Now if I become uberly rich in 2 years, then by all means...Call the wedding experts!
your every woman,
