My top Wedding themes…

Hey guys! 🙂

I was actually thinking of a wedding theme for sometime now since it also play some important role for wedding preparation ♥ (considering month & date of the event, bridal gown, groom’s attire, reception & the facade of venue ♥)  modern Filipino couple nowadays are very much creative in planning wedding themes that will suite their preference and a theme makes a wedding more personal, coordinated and definitely elegant 🙂

aren’t you excited bride-to-be’s / groom-to-be’s ?

Now, it’s time to decide on one of the most critical components of your special day: the theme.


1. Shabby Chic ♥

Shabby chic items are often heavily painted through the years, with many layers showing through obviously time-worn areas. It  evokes the type of decoration found in large country houses where there are worn and faded old chintz sofas and curtains, old paintwork and unassuming ‘good’ taste. The end result of shabby chic is to achieve an elegant overall effect, as opposed to the sentimentally cute Pop-Victorian. Pure whites, as well as ecrus and worn or bleached out pastel colors are favorites. The shabby chic aesthetic also expands to the garden, with the same design principles of using timeworn garden furniture and feminine accessories. Rose gardens are popular with the shabby chic style of decor.

It also emphasized the feeling of ‘distressing’ the finish of the vintage way in addition to a smaller amount of the feminine touch. It is a soft, relaxed, feminine, romantic style of decorating that looks comfortable and inviting…

So.. I’m imagining that if your venue is outdoor type or tent setup while feeling the nature breeze I can say that this setup is also ideal ♥

I actually fell in love with this elegant theme very feminine… but i’m more attached to Royal blue with combination of Salmon pink..like a royalty ehh? 🙂 ♥ ….

2. Romantic Whimsical 

I also want a soft and whimsical look for our wedding, very cheesy right? lol .. romantic whimsical for a lavish afternoon to enticing dinner candlelight is not bad for this kind of theme. Imagining a fabulous florist (I’m dreaming of Vatel Manila’s creation) did a brilliant job of creating a ribbon garland which was used to decorate the center tables/backdrop. It was a mixture of pastel colours, with salmon pink accents, and each ribbon had a different texture and design. It looked beautiful swaying gently in the breeze, against the luscious royal blue foliage of the venue, and the striking wood like pergola…isn’t romantic? ♥

Wedding teaser #1 : First appointment of the year.

I scheduled an appointment with Ms. Jazel Sy last with regards to wedding gown her assistant is quick to respond naman when it comes to inquiries wherein she gave me a copy of wedding gown proposal thru email and mind you I was very very excited I even jump and giggle at my office desk when I got her reply hehe ang *oa* dba..kasi since late 2011 I’ve been browsing her creations, portfolios of her brides yeah.. dream wedding couturier ko sya hehe. Feb 8, 2014 which was yesterday, my whole family accompanied me going to her shop hehe I though I’m gonna late coz my dad has so many errands at our family business but still he managed to make time for me 🙂

So here it goes, we traveled from Parañaque to Paco Manila travel time was a blast! nung nasa shop nya na kame i’m a bit *nervous* felt like I want to back out na coz of shyness but no.. I shouldn’t be like this since i’m so overwhelmed. When we entered her shop a male beader politely greet us and gave us some albums of Jazel’s creations there are two mannequins in front display and I definitely fell inlove again hoho.. male beader handed me a piece of paper to fill up a form and it’s my “profile” about what I like, my hobbies, my height, my name and my nickname, my favorite color and where I live (ohh di ba parang nag apply lang and iinterviewhin sa work hehe) I gladly fill up the form and after 10 minutes we we’re told to go upstairs to meet her, mas madaming creations/samples sa taas omg hehe i’m happy 🙂

When my mom and I entered her office sabi ni Ms. Jazel “sinong ikakasal?” (“who’s gonna get married?”) hahaha damn mukha kasi kaming mag sisters ng mom ko..lol I said I’m the one who’s gonna get married and she said “ohhh, bata ka pa pala” tapos sabay smile hehe.

While discussing my personal ideas on how I want my wedding gown to be she asked me to stand up then start making a sketch of my wedding gown in front of us.

I really want beadings & laces..so much details… omg.

Here’s the sample of her sketch of what will be the look of my wedding gown:


She also made a sketch for my mom: ♥


She even gave me an advised na it’s too early to make preparations with regards to wedding gowns because there is an instance that I might change my plans, motifs, ideas, style. Ideal preparation is within 6-8 months before wedding date ♥

After my appointment, my parents had a novena prayer to Nazarene church then after that we had a quick ocular visit to intramuros. Nadaanan namin yung Ilustrado, patio victoria, San Agustin church and Manila Cathedral and I really want to got inside sana kaso there’s a wedding that time na excite ako kasi “closed door” or “dramatic entrance” na ang peg nung bride nung nakita ko hehe..maybe nxt time I might go there to check personally. I’m torn between SAC and St. James the great Alabang … ♥ ☻

~ laters. To be con’t ♥ happy preps
