During your wedding’s final detailing phase, there are certain things with your details that you get confused who should you talk to about and who should be working with. Below are the things that are mostly applicable to those couples who got OTD Coordinators only since from the start you and your hubby have managed to book all of your suppliers directly and by yourselves.
The suppliers below are supposed to be 100% responsible for the following during your wedding’s final detailing to ensure a smooth process. Again, these are all based on our own experiences.
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?
We were always fascinated with glamorous art installations, floral decors etc that we see on weddings that’s why we decided to push through in booking a separate Event Stylist for our wedding and that’s GARY DACANAY. Below is our supplier review for him and his team.
Supplier Rating:3.25/5 (Event Styling) and 5/5 (Bridal Bouquet/Groom’s Boutonniere)
Weddings won’t be complete without flowers and decorations for both the ceremony and reception. They are one of the things that make the event — stunning and luscious to the eyes. Looking at gorgeous bridal bouquets and beautifully arranged ceremonial aisle where the bride will walk to meet her groom and inspiring well-decorated venues for the party afterward is one of the things that soon-to-wed-couples give a good amount of consideration lately. With the trend of theme weddings, couples are more than happy to search for the best of the best in Manila’s wedding industry. Unfortunately, event styling has become too pricey due to the recent demand and glamour that it adds to weddings. For those who are on a tight budget like us — this could probably be a dream to get unless a miracle would happen! 🙂
Below is a list of reliable and in-demand florists and event stylists in the country that we have come into contact with and their initial price range for a Manila-based December 2016wedding.
UPDATED SOME RATES AS OF MARCH 2018
Their rates, however, varies depending on your wedding date, number of guests, size of venue, flowers (local, imported or mixed) and decors to be used, if reception only or with ceremony or with bridal bouquet/entourage flowers, OOT fees (if applicable), corkages (if not accredited by the venue and caterer), number of crew meals and reputation (mid-range or high end supplier). It is highly advisable to contact them directly for your specific event quotation.
