choosing a wedding dates..

I was really upset of what had happen last night but everything happens for a reason.

We had difficulty on choosing our wedding dates. Filipino tradition has a superstitious belief on choosing wedding dates. My parents choose according to the moon,full moon is good that's what they said,  and my fiancee's parents choose according to the months, April and May is a good month to get married. We picked the date May 26. But because of the circumstances happened, we start again from the beginning. 

Some of us believed Chinese Feng Shui, If your chosen dates does not belong  from the Chinese Feng Shui , there are some solution with that. So don't be upset . You can follow this those who want to get married this year.

what is wedding all about?

Anywhere and everywhere in the world month of June is very popular for weddings. But what is wedding all about? Why do need  brides wear white dress? Is it necessary?

With my conversation with Sarah, my 91 years old employer, married for 67 years with her husband. She said wedding are the union of two person. She was married in a war time, and her parents in-law wanted her only to wear a blue dress that suits her husband wearing an air force uniform. When her father found out, he said no way "My Sarah , should wear a white dress" It came up to my mind the question , why do brides wear white dress for their wedding? Sarah told me white dress signifies virginity and purity. You walk to the aisle presenting yourself to your husband as pure which you kept throughout your life. Then, what if you are not a virgin? Is it necessary to wear white dress? In my point of view it is traditional most especially for a Christian Catholic Wedding. Wearing white dresses is a dream of every woman. Is it beautiful for a bride to wear a white dress for her wedding day

When I started planning my wedding, I soon realized that this is wedding all about. From a small tiny details, from the dress, motif, church, reception, hair and make-ups, hosting and event, accommodation and from your guest, invitation, souvenirs, etc.. I consider doing our wedding in my place, to my favorite and dream Church.  But there is always a lot of suggestion and idea comes which I preferred  not to bother. The hassle area now is the preparation of our Wedding Requirements. Our parents are the one who help us complying our papers but it needs a lot of reminding them, really difficult. huh! Since both of us are not there, we hire a Wedding Planner who can help us organize our dream wedding. People thought that hiring a wedding planner/coordinator is expensive. Basically, wedding planner/coordinator have special packages like on the day coordination package, full coordination package, semi full coordination package, hair and make up package, and event hosting and entertainment package. Contact Wedding Planner at and ask for the packages I mention. Let the planner take care of any item, no matter how small or big it is because she knows your price range so she can weed out any vendor who doesn't fall within your budget. In addition , she will work and know according to the taste of your wedding. Hiring them is less stressful and chaos rather than working your own effort . And you don't know every penny comes out from your pocket when you sum up sometimes are more higher  than the budget you expect to render.

This is all about, about planning our dream wedding to be. But do we consider planning right after the wedding? This is the most important criteria of getting into married. Like what Sarah was telling me most often, never mind the wedding. The most important is right after the wedding. If you have something to eat, something to leave on and keeping going on life as a couple. That is the question all about??? Hehehe!!!

on our simple plan...

Sounds odd for everybody but me and my boyfriend "fiancee plan to settle down by the time we will be there (Philippines). Everything happen merely on the internet but it seems like we are close for each other. read this. Our only lifeline with this relationship is our computer and our phone. Nothing is impossible I think if you both interested and make an effort with the relationship you have. I agree maintaining a long distance relationship is very difficult. Some of my friends like Long Distance Relationship. They said , the less you talk and see each other, the less you have fights and arguments. Is it true? Here are some Do's and Dont's.

Probably, my friends, followers if I have (yes, I did have) hehehe!!! are scared reading with my simple revelation about wedding plans. Why? I hasn't meet the person, and we plan the wedding we wanted to be. With this society or world , I supposed it's not new especially those OFW , like me spending most of their time with their job to earn money while working abroad.  While working they are sneaking around in dating websites to meet the partner of their life. I'm one of them hehehe and if they found their perfect partner they thought , some plane to meet first , and some plans to prepare a wedding and when they'll meet it's ended up in the Altar of Matrimony.. You might like the story of Alex and Ems. 

Going back on our simple plan...

We want only a simple wedding yet elegant and memorable. A fairy tale theme,that match our destiny, with turquoise blue fuchsia pink motif. hmmmm. 

I posted the inspirational board of the motif...


loving you is stupidity

Yes,  I admitted it I've been stupid loving him. 

Before, I am officially engaged with him, we've been through a lot of troubles that almost end up our relationship. He did things that made me angry , upset and seems for me it was the end of the world. After confessing me about his age, the relationship wasn't so flowery. Family problems arose from both sides. I always wanted him to listen to me but he wasn't there for me. Perhaps he was tired of listening my own, which the fact he had his own and he cannot shared to me because I have a lot on my plate. I remember just one night he was burst with tears and cried about his problems and I felt guilty myself that I never listen to him. I was so selfish. We let time goes by not talking with each other. I was busy solving my own, and when the time I talked with him I was always being rational. I never understand, and I started doubting all the time with his love for me.

By the time, I was not there for him and was so disturb with my feelings and settling the problems with my family. He found a friend, who could understand him. A friend that he can share his problems. A friend who listen with him. They end to a mutual understanding and I bound to caught all the messages he sent with that girl. And it happened that I know the girl who knew that I am his girlfriend and she tried to be friend with me.I confronted him about the messages and then he was so angry about it. I don't have the right to interfere his private property (its true). He told me, I'm hurting myself dahil kahit san daw sunod ako ng sunod. When I have an instinct I cannot set and do nothing at all. I always do something until I find out what's going on. I had sleepless night, I cannot eat at the same time I was so upset with my family. I used to drink a glass of wine in the night to make me sleep. I cried and my phone bills got bigger just to call him and started crying. I suffered that stupid feelings of mine for 6 weeks and I realized, who he is  He was so lucky to have me. He his ugly, Lol... he has a bad odor , he didn't brush his teeth.. hehehe.. I keep thinking negative thoughts to make me feel better. He don't deserve my tears, my love. It was very had for me to talk with him, which I did and let him choose. I was afraid then but I have to accept the fact. He is not mine. But I was wrong, he was angry with me, and said You know that I will choose you over her. I was so flattered and felt happy but deep inside my heart, GOD give me a sign if he is telling the truth. If he really loves me, then he have to prove it to me. But be hurry and make sure that when he comes back to me I'm still there, otherwise he cannot find me anymore. Just be sure that the person he is going to replace me is more than I could offer with him, without baggage(walang anak). That was the last word I told him and I was contemplating the happy days we shared together over the internet. The plans and the dreams.  I was in the process of recovering and healing the wounds, I received a message from the girl telling me,  "he choose you, you won , just take care of him he is a good man. It was only a game between me and him, I have a child and I am going to get married with the father of my child. I am sincerely sorry, sis and I hope one day you will forgive me. Belated merry Christmas and Happy Ne year"

I don't know what to say, I never replied her until now, and he asked also an apology to me. Telling me he cannot bear to lose me anymore. The relationship is back to normal and officially he both an engagement ring and proposed with me again.

I once a stupid but because I love him so much and the pain is unbearable to lose him, and just one click of my thumb is gone. In relationship I always give chances, second, third but not in major things. I think weather we like it or not , if we fall in love we cannot hold our feelings. It's easy to say (don't let your heart rule your mind, but let you mind rule your heart )than done. On the other hand, we never knew a person until we don't live with them. There are couple who been out together for many years but after they got married finish on the story. There are also known each other for a few months and have a happy ending. Relationship or shall I call it marriage is a matter of luck. It it turn out alright then you must be clever.

I hope I made my right choice and decision with out regrets and hesitation.
