M&H Supplier Ratings (Lights & Sounds, Teddy Bears)

May 12, 2010

Lights and Sounds: JR Music Entertainment

Peso power: Php 8,000

Contact details: Jun Regalado (0917-8322183)

Mac was the one in charge for this particular supplier. He used to moonlight as an audio guy when he was younger so he knew a lot about sound equipment. Whenever I suggested a supplier to him, he would ask for their list of equipment and he always had something to say. Kesyo “masyadong mahal e pambahay lang naman yung equipment” or “bakit ganyan kadaming tao ipapadala nila? Hindi naman kailangan…” etcetera… finally, I gave up and told him to look for a lights and sounds supplier himself.

JR Music was suggested to him by a friend of his. According to Mac, the original package price was 15k but he haggled, crossed out several equipment that he felt we didn’t need until the price went down to 8k.

I loved the lighting they did for our venue. I would have loved a spotlight but Mac said he opted not to get one because mainit daw. E pawisin kaming dalawa hehehe…

As for the audio, we didn’t notice anything wrong during the wedding but my friends told me na namatay daw yung isang microphone nung isang singer nung band namin. Mac and I didn’t notice it because we were seated close to the band. Naayos din naman daw yung technical problem pero sayang lang daw kasi namatay pa yung mic during a duet.

Overall rating: 4. Technical problems are inevitable during an event. It’s the response to the problem that counts. Highly recommended supplier.

LCD Projector:  Wildfire Inc.

Peso power: FREE!!!

Mac and I used to be employed by this production house. This was where we met and some of our closest friends are still with this company.

As a wedding gift, the owner offered the use of one of their LCD projectors. Ang nakakatawa, nagkataon na may kasabay kaming event on the day of the wedding. Yung pinagamit nilang LCD sa amin, mas maganda kesa doon sa event nila. That’s how important we were to them. Sobrang linaw nung projector na kahit hindi patayin ang ilaw, kitang-kita pa rin yung video on screen.

Medyo na-late nga lang sila ng set up so my coordinator had to re-shuffle the program but no worries.

Overall rating: 5+++++ We felt like very important clients. Nakakataba ng puso. 🙂

Teddy Bears: Tita Dulce and Siendy Salazar

Peso Power: FREE!!!

I didn’t want my flower girl to carry flowers (as I mentioned earlier, I really felt that spending too much on flowers was a waste).  I got the teddy bears idea from a fellow w@wie. My best friend, who’s based in Singapore, knew how to sew and I asked her if she can help me make the dress for the flower girl’s teddy bear. She agreed.

Nagulat ako when I found out that instead of just one, she made two bears—a bride and groom. When I saw them, napatalon ako sa tuwa. Sobrang cute! Siendy made the bear’s bridal gown while Tita Dulce (my best friend’s mom), made the barong and pants and added beadwork to the teddy bear bride’s gown. Nilagyan pa nila ng veil and earrings!

Our flower girl looked so adorable during the march while she carried the bears. Love it!

Overall rating: 5+++++
