Loving our guestbook!

April 8, 2010

Got the initial layout for our guestbook from 5th Door Productions. To be honest, we originally didn’t want to have a guestbook for the wedding but when Mac and I saw the pictures from our engagement shoot, we changed our minds.

We had some very minor revisions with the layout (mostly to change which word they should give emphasis on) but all in all, my fiance and I loved how it turned out. Can’t wait to see the hard copy!

Updates…less than a month to go!

March 24, 2010

Accomplishments (as of March 24, 2010)

1. Had my third fitting for my gown this morning. P-E-R-F-E-C-T! Can’t wait to see how it will look with the lace and the beadwork. Mom’s dress still needs some work though.

2. Ordered another set of invitations from Calliope. Inital 100 sets were not enough for our growing guest list.

3. (Still) finalizing the guest list. Still need to input guests’ contact numbers into excel sheet so I can turn over RSVP to coordinator. Tedious.

4. Entourage dresses ALMOST done. Final fitting for my girls scheduled on April 10.

5. My brothers’ barongs have been delivered. Great fit on them but Dad’s barong needed work. Mac’s two brothers’ fitting also done but Mac and his dad are scheduled on April 6 when his family gets here from the US. Mac’s youngest brother scheduled on April 13 since he’s coming in on a later flight. Got guarantee from Mang Rey that barongs will be delivered way before the wedding. Hope so.

6. I bought my bridal shoes! No posts about it yet. I want it to be a surprise! Got it on sale at Rustan’s. It’s blue and it’s lovely… 🙂

7. Mac also bought his shoes on sale. Comfy pair of Hush Puppies.

8. Church requirements are “almost” complete. Mac just needs to be confirmed (last minute talaga!) and we have to get our marriage license on April 5.

9. Reserved rooms for preps at A. Venue Suites (will use my Enjoy Card voucher to avail of 40% discount)

10. Sent first batch of invitations to US via FedEx.
