Wedding Supplier Review: NEONOVELTIES Invitations

We have emphasized before from our previous posts that Wedding Invitations can be a great gauge for your guests to know what to expect from your wedding in general. So we decided to give importance to our invitation by getting the best possible yet affordable wedding invitations supplier and by chance, we found — NEONOVELTIES.

People think that wedding invitations are just a set of paper and a minor detail during the wedding preparation. But, this set of paper is as important as the others since this contains all your necessary wedding details that not only gives accurate information about your event’s date, time, location, list of entourage etc but couples should realize that a great wedding invitation gives a good (and important)
impression for all the guests about what to expect on the day itself. Here, the key term to remember is “good impression.”

I have always dreamed of getting married in this UNESCO heritage church inside the walls of Intramuros. Although I also fancy other old churches like Manila Cathedral,  there’s just something about the elegantly lit chandeliers, organs, and the trompe l’oeil ceiling paintings that shouts grandeur that dates back from the 16th-century colonial period. Just like what I said from this previous post (Our Wedding Preps Timeline) HERE, it was a mutual decision between Garry and me to book San Agustin Church (SAC) for our church ceremony.
