Fun Ways To Make Your Wedding More Individuals

Fancy a wedding that is more personal to your and your partner, and more individual overall? Read on for some fun ideas!

Have a guest sing your first dance

If your guest list is any more than 30 people, chances are you will have someone in your ranks who can sing! Have them put their talents to good use and sing your first dance. This will make it even more special and memorable. Just be sure to give them so time to rehearse in the space, to get to grips with the acoustics and tech.

Personalise your invites

Personalised wedding invitations are a great way to set a tone of individuality from the off. After all, they will be the first thing your guests see from you on the topic of the wedding. You can then be totally in charge of the vibe you give off. You might want a simple design, or something really classy. Or, go for wild and bold colours to express your personality!

Change up the tradition

Traditions are wonderful things, but you won’t have to abide by them if you don’t want to. Instead of just having your father walk you down the aisle, take both parents. Or ask your best friend or grandma to do the honours. Save your vows for away from the chapel or church, and say them at the reception later in the evening. Don’t fancy a white dress? Then wear something different. It’s your wedding; do whatever you like!

Table cloths to draw on!

Not just for the kids tables– do this for the grown-ups too! Instead of having fancy, white table clothes that will get ruined (goodbye deposit!)- do this. Have large brown sheets of paper of table clothes. Put a big pot of crayons in the middle of the table. Let your guests customise and draw as the wish! Just make sure it is crayons… you don’t want a big pen mark on the back of your dress! You could even make it a competition, and have a prize for the best table cloth at the end of the day.

Replace confetti with sparklers

Instead of leaving your venue at the end of the night to a flurry of confetti, give every guest a sparkler! Not only are these easier to see it the dark,but they’re also pretty much the exact same cost. They also look incredible in photos, especially if your photographer gets up above you and takes a snap looking down. Save the confetti to use during the day, and have a truly sparkling exit!

Make your own playlist

Even the best DJ’s in the world can get carried away sometimes. This can lead to them ignoring your request list and playing what they want instead! Nightmare! Take back control by putting yourself in charge of the evening disco. Hire a big set of speakers and hook up your laptop. Play a playlist you’ve curated with your partner beforehand. That way you know exactly what is coming. Plus you might save a bit of money too!

Shop Your Wedding Needs Online

Being born and raise in the Philippines, a third world country. It is not surprising why Filipinos are very careful when it comes to online shopping. Why not? It is not easy to spend our hard earned money to something that is not worth the price or worst losing the item you bought online. I am talking based on my very own experience. When I first tried to shop online I was hesitant and anxious. It feels like waiting for a decade for my purchased to be delivered at home. Thankfully, I am happy and satisfied. Well, the seller is an online friend and she is selling authentic product. Buying in trusted seller is really a must to have a successful online shopping.

But anyway, it is amazing to know that online shopping is becoming known in my country. A good proof of it, are the online stores that sprouting like mushrooms in the past couple of years I noticed the increase of online stores that sells trendy clothing, bags, accesories, gadget, home appliance and many more. I still have to find out if there is a Philippine base wedding store, a store like, it’s a one stop shop for all your wedding needs.

Budget is not a problem as you can start your search defending on how much your budget. As of this typing is having a 50% discount on selected item. Just in case you missed this offer you can still catch the 20% off. So why spend too much on your wedding gown and Bridesmaid Dresses without breaking the bank. Aside from gowns you can also find affordable Wedding Shoes online. Shall you need more information, you can visit the site any time or better yet check the website now to avail the discount.

Why Wear An Eyeglass?

I am a type of person who is not fond of wearing eyeglasses. However because there is something wrong with my eyes I am forced to wear them until a stop wearing my glasses and keep it in a safe place. I should have worn it permanently but am hardheaded so I stop wearing it when headache stopped visiting me.

If my eyeglass was prescribed by an ophthalmologist others wear an eyeglasses for the sake of fashion. I salute them for they look good in it, it only proves that eyeglass wear is not only because you need it to see well but because you want to be fashionable.

Silver Jewelry Collection

I know for the fact that silver jewelries these days are commonly used by jewelry lovers. I guess the reason why silver jewelry became a hit these days is because it is safe to wear. Wearing gold jewelries is not always safe especially if you are going to a public places.

The girlfriend of my Uncle owns a lot of silver jewelries from toe rings to earrings. However, I am not certain if she have jewelries that is made of mexican silver. If she does, I will not be surprised for she has a silver collection. As for me, I only have a set of silver jewelry which I seldom use.

Sangyaw Parade of Lights 2013, Tacloban City

Sangyaw Parade of Lights is one of the highlight honoring the patron saint Sr. Sto. Nino de Tacloban. The parade schedule was on the 29th but due to the bad weather the parade was move to the following day June 30 for the safety of those who will watch the parade and the participants. Gladly that is was postpone because J and L were able to witness the parade. It was our first time to witness the dazzling floats with colored lights, street dancers with stunning and colorful costumes.

J is amazed of Power Ranger costume, he even touch it after taking the picture 🙂

As expected the parade was delayed, it was announced that the parade will start at 5 pm but I guess it was already 7pm when it actually began. Since I want us to have a good spot while watching the parade I want us to be in the city before 4pm but gladly it was pass 5pm when we arrive at the parade route and we go on foot as the jeepneys were not allowed to go inside the main street of the city. So imagine the long wait not to mention our tired foot. My son J is getting impatient already and starving.

In spite the long wait and the pain that our foot had to endure while waiting for the parade. It was still a night full of fun. Watching those bright and beautiful floats and costumes was worth the wait. Will post some more photos on my travel blog
