List of all Jeff Galang Brides. Mine’s on the lower left ❤ 

 

Weddings are crazy especially when it comes to organizing things and choosing the best possible suppliers in town but still within the budget. Since some couples, like us, prefer to do engagement/prenup shoots, hiring a stylist is a must, more so if you have a specific theme in mind. But the problem comes when you get to see their  rates which by then would make you feel that it’s beyond your reach. Unless you would push through with this dream engagement shoot or being handled on your wedding day itself by saving up for tit, because let’s face it — working with the best suppliers in the industry doesn’t really come cheap.

But thankfully though, these moments usually come. Oppotunities that happen only once in a lifetime! And guess what? Our prenup stylist, Jeff Galang, who is considered one of the best in the country with a great portfolio handling celebrity wedding and events has an offer you definitely won’t resist! Check it now now!

And by the way, we’re his 49th couple. #JeffGalangBride

My Ex and Why’s

Concepts are everywhere. It’s really difficult to come out with a unique design, but then when you do, and tried to make it “personalized” with how you envisioned your dream event or wedding for that matter, you would feel that all your hard work has paid off. And then comes the realization that even if you have been nice to your supplier and paid them diligently and without fault, the outcome won’t be as perfect as you imagined it to be — even after all the meetings and final detailing that you did to remind them about it. Then, you moved on. Your wedding’s over.

Then one day you’ll see another event that has the “similarities in some of the few styling details from your own wedding” and with what you and your hubby really envisioned a couple of months back. Then the excitement will hit you and be like.. Wow it looks beautiful! Coincidence, maybe?

DIY: Save the Date video 2

During our wedding preps, everything was on a tight budget. From our major suppliers until down to the very smallest detail, everything was accounted for. And like any other couple, we, of course wanted everyone to be reminded of our special day but not to the extent of printing save the date cards and sending them out to our guests. They’re good, no offense, but for us it’s pretty much redundant already since we already planned to give out our official formal wedding invites. Plus, the printing and shipping would cost us a few thousand that we felt would be better off with our invites or some other important wedding supplier. Besides, we don’t want to jump on the bandwagon. We wanted to be unique. We wanted to showcase who we are as a couple. So..what better way to present it was through our passion — photography and videography!

Ways to ask your Entourage to be part of your Wedding

Asking people to be part of your special wedding VIPs – your Primary Sponsors (Ninongs and Ninangs), your Best Man, your Maid of Honor, your Man of Honor (for that extra twist), your Secondary Sponsors, your Groomsmen, your Bridesmaids and even the kids, both Bearers and Flower Girls – those who will play a vital role during and after your wedding can be quite nerve wracking. There is actually no specific answer based from our experience since it really depends on the couple and their “closeness” with the chosen potential Primary Sponsor. But remember before you act on it, think a lot of times if your chosen potential ninong or ninang will be really “fit” the role to stand beside you in front of the altar and vow to commit to God to be your second parents not only because your parents said so, or they’re politicians or probably the richest person/couple you know of but because they also embody great values and character traits that you guys respect. This is a huge responsibility that is way beyond the expensive gifts or the thought that you would be rubbing elbows with the rich and famous.

RTW, Rent or Customized Wedding Gown?

This has been a serious topic for me during my preps especially since we’re on a tight budget. But because I couldn’t really ask my ex-fiance about details things when it comes to my gown, I’ve asked my mom, my close girlfriends and a lot of women who have been married or is going to get married like me at that time. Unfortunately, they have different views about it which made me more confused. And every time I would go to the mall, to different wedding gown boutiques and ateliers, like Rosa Clara, Pronovias, to name a few, I would be more than confused. More so, whenever I would read blogs and see wedding videos of celebrities with their jaw-dropping bridal gowns! I’m always left with the question.. now what?!
