Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails.

PROVERBS 10 : 12

Hatred stirreth up strifes: but love covereth all sins.

I JOHN 4 : 18-19

There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.
We love him, because he first loved us.

Sanctity of Marriage

GENESIS 2 : 21-24 

And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;
And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.
And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called a Woman, because she was taken out of Man.
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mothers, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

EPHESIANS 5 : 31-33

For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.
This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.
Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself: and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

MARK 10 : 6-9

But from the beginning of the creation God made them male and female.
For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and cleave to his wife;
And they twain shall be one flesh: so they are no more twain, but one flesh.
What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.

Escort Cards

are used to help the guests find their assigned table, this it to avoid glitches that may arise on seating arrangements.

As the guest enter the reception, they will find the escort cards on a separate table. The card was marked by guest's name and table number assignment. It will direct guest to their respective seats where they can find their name printed on separate place card. 

If escort cards are unavailable, ask the ushers/usherette for assistance.

Please refrain from seating to other's table to avoid inconvenience with anybody.

You are invited, but not sure what to wear? Some invitations indicates decorum but if not, you should look carefully to the details like time, setting and theme for the wedding. You as guest should know the proper attire rules, or you will end up insulting the couple, embarrassing yourself, or drawing too much attention away from the newly weds.

General Principle:
* Don't dress to upstage the Bride and Groom
* Don't wear white dress. 
* Dress respectfully as if you are attending a  
   church service.
* Match your color pallet to the event.
* Men should always wear collared shirts and 
   shoes that cover the toes.
* Don't wear jeans.

It is no surprise that gold symbolizes wealth, but it also portraits good health.

Gold promotes increase of personal power, relaxation & enjoyment of life, confidence and willpower.

Lavishness is one of the perception of this color...

Wedding Invites

When invitations arrived, it signifies that bride and groom wants you to be part of their special day, that they want you to witness their vows for forever. Treat it with great honor with simply following some wedding etiquette.

1. RSVP Promptly. ("Répondez s'il vous plaît", a french word means "please reply") Determine whether or not you can attend the ceremony and the reception. Wedding planning hinges on how many people should be expected, this will be use from the seating arrangements, ceremony, preparation of giveaways, up to the ordering of the food. It will be an inconvenience for the couple if you don't respond but you showed up. RSVP ON TIME.

2. Uninvited. Read and re-read. This is to make sure if you are allowed to bring a guest. Do not try to convince the couple to let you be with your date to escort you in their event. Nowadays, tickets were send off together with the invitations, this is to let the guest not to assume whether they can be with someone to attend. Remember some couple wants their special day to be intimate and only close friends and relatives are only invited.  

If you do not receive wedding invites, do not invite yourself. Wedding is an exclusive event, couples and their families may not include everyone. So do not take it personally.

3. Do not bring your children. Unless they are part of the entourage or specially mentioned in the invites, bringing them is inappropriate. 


It is a Long Time but Just Enough

After "Will you marry me?" and "Yes" part, now what?

It is time to begin planning one of the biggest part of our life. 

When Abbey and I start dating, he amused me on very futuristic questions and one of those were "What is your dream wedding?". Answered him, that I want beach wedding.

Presently, dream wedding was vanished along with the planning, why? to the hell with that dream-dream wedding, now, i just want to marry my "dream husband". kahit anong wedding basta si Abbey ang partner, okay na.

Some people thought that 1 year is a long time to prepare for a wedding, but na-a-a, I have been through organizing some weddings and 12 months is just enough time in planning a tie-a-knot.

12 or more months before, couple should have:
1. Determine date and time of wedding.
2. Decide the size and setting.
3. Create a budget.
4. Draw up initial guest list.

No one said that planning an event is easy, specially a wedding, hopefully months of effort will be worthy. 

So here we are, getting started.


A wedding present is indeed required. Whether it's monetary gift or something purchased from registry, guests have a year round from the wedding date to see if the couple received it. Others choose to send gifts ahead of time. Either way is fine, if guest won't attend the wedding, it's a customary to send a gift.

Most brides register for gifts, with this the guests will know what the couple needs and things they don't have.

Absolutely, is it appropriate to give money. The guests should seek advise from relatives of the couple if they prefers to receive money. 


Discussions after discussions, we came up with the decision of having a separate site with my multiply. 

Every steps were mutually decided by both of us. Instead of going to usual wedding sites like ewedding.com or mywedding.com, we ended up to blogspot.com. But why?, So we can have one account for the blog and for our couple's email address. (tamad parehas sa mga fill up portion).

With this, we can keep our friends and relatives updated. Like other wedding websites, we will publish our thoughts here, our pictures, announcements, RSVP, etc.

And so, please feel free to visit our site time to time. Malay ninyo, one of these days, your name was dragged along na to some of our post. hehe.
