WEDDING 101: Bride Does Her Own Make-up

Leave the make-up part to the experts. Or, just get on with it. I got on with it and never regretted doing my make-up on my wedding day. The truth was, the make-up was not my major concern on my wedding day. The skin was. I’ve been battling with adult acne and I was focused on a sustainable regimen that would not cause my skin to breakout during my wedding day. I always believe great skin needs no make-up so if I have great skin on my wedding day I would not have to worry. Advertisements

WEDDING 101: Choosing the Perfect Venue

  The wedding of Mel Gibson and Catherine McCormack’s characters in Braveheart is my favorite wedding scene. I haven’t seen a lot of movies with wedding scenes that stuck to my head afterwards. I wanted a wedding that’s between me and the man I would spend the rest of my life with, in front of an officiant (because we legally need one). I didn’t want any spectator mostly because I can’t stay too long in the limelight. When scouting for our wedding venue, my then boyfriend and I took into consideration the following: (1) an outside area where the ceremony would be held, and (2) a covered hall for the reception. In addition, the venue must have a bit of a history (because we are historyphiles), must be romantic and must be secluded.

Wedding 101: Budget

How much would you spend for a wedding? I’m sure most couples would answer, “As much as we can!” That is true. But — I’m warning you. DO NOT spend all your savings for your wedding, and, worse, DO NOT incur debts just so you can have your dream wedding. Times are tough these days. While the dollar-peso exchange is high, it is fluctuating. Commodity prices are still steep, despite the cheap price of gasoline. So, how much would you spend for your wedding? And, who should spend for what?

Wedding 101: The Guest List

When my husband and I attended Mandaue Foam x Meream’s watercolor workshop, he introduced me as his wife. It was awkward and I’m sure I blushed to the ninth degree of red because I am not yet to being called as such. When my husband said I was his wife, I was reminded that I have yet to share some things with you about our wedding and our wedding process. There were a lot of things we learned in year’s-worth of planning and preparing and a lot of things that we omitted just so we can have the most comfortable and best wedding. After all, we may get married only once.

Pre-Nup Styling Project — “The Dangerous Type”

One Saturday in November last year (or was that December?) I woke up early despite sleeping very late the night before, lugged my big plastic box of clothes and shoes and traversed to midtown Cebu to meet up with one of my dearest friends, a highschool classmate, to assist her in their pre-nuptial photoshoot.  I think I was as excited as the bride-to-be.  This would be the first time I’d style and I was eager to meet the team behind RockPaperScissors.
