1. Your top 'Moment' during the preparation (for both married and unmarried members)
- Getting my gown and accessories -- "This is it! I'm getting married!"
- My walk. It was short, sweet but meaningful. I met my mother and uncle (who took the place of my father, who had already passed away) a few steps from the entrance, kissed my mom and walked with them until we reached my groom.
It's plural -- nicest THINGS done to me...
- my surprise wedding shower at a spa -- organized by w@wies who came to be my friends
- a whole box of wines given by my uncle during the wedding. Because of budget constraints, we decided not to serve wine. I actually asked the waiter who poured red wine where it came from and how much it cost (!) then he told me that someone gave a whole box as a gift and pointed out my Uncle Sev.
- the support of my extended family. You know how much that meant to me :)
- people actually making it to the wedding rites and the reception despite the heavy rains and the awful traffic. The chapel was full! I felt so loved. :)
- The sermon by our priest (the best I've heard in a wedding!) and the speech by the Head Abbess in my mom's temple (she's Buddhist)
- all about compromise.
- not all romance.
- needs constant communication
- It rained. Heavily.
- Traffic was VERY bad.
- The sound system.
- The cake was not served.
6. Things I splurged and will splurge on. Max of 3 answers lang pls. (we will tally thing kasi and get the Top answers)
- The food!!!
- The photos and video.
- The Wedding March from "The Midsummer Night's Dream" -- I know it's no longer uso (in fashion) but I've always felt emotional with this song and felt that this was THE song for weddings.
- Inseparable by Natalie Cole
9. Possible DIY's for your wedding (pls indicate which are the ones you did or will do)
- Missalette - my w@w sisters & I actually did this :)
- Too "old" to wait
- Baby on the way
- To satisfy other people
- ...and its preparation is actually a practice for married life. You get to learn to budget, to compromise with your fiance, to prioritize things...
- On the day itself, just relax and let go...there's really nothing else you can do. Just enjoy your big day.
- ...that my Dad were around and that he and my mom rode with me in the bridal car and walked with me towards my groom...
