Useful Wedding Souvenirs

Early this morning while looking at our own wedding checklist, I noticed that we haven’t talked much about wedding souvenirs probably because we still have 11 months in our hands. Then I saw this post on Pinterest and checked my Instagram account regarding souvenirs.

Then, it made me think about the reasons for getting a souvenir for the guests. After our conversation we decided on 5 things to consider: relevance, consumability, environmental effect, affordability and usefulness. 

Below is a list of possible USEFUL souvenirs that we might consider for our big day for DIY and some local suppliers that we have checked (their names in Italics) that I have checked who got good reviews so far that we might consider in case we fail to do the DIY stuff. And yes, it will be way better if you can make them personalized.

Wedding Florist and Event Styling

Reception styling by Gideon Hermosa

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 2016 wedding.

UPDATED SOME “STARTING or RANGE” RATES AS OF OCTOBER 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.
