Hotel Preps Ocular Part 1

Days Left: 172 days as of today

Charles & I Had our ocular visit at some prospective Hotels for the day itself. We didn't get a chance to visit one hotel though coz they said they are 100% booked for that day. Here's the Hotels we visited:

1. Richmonde Hotel Ortigas
> the bellboy who assists us allowed us to take pictures.

> we love the staff there, they are so friendly and helpful.
> the rooms are not too big it's just right.
> the 1-br and 2-br suites have their own kitchen.
> we are thinking yes for this hotel.

(I Think the one br. suite will be good enough for me)

(Junior suite for the groom and his parent)

2. Imperial Suites
> sorry no pictures allowed.

> old feeling and look.
> small rooms even for the 2-br suite.
> no no
> too bad it will be so accessible for our church

3. Astoria Plaza
> I use to love this hotel specially for the wedding preps. But due to a bad staff that we have encountered big NO NO.

> The concierge who assisted us is very "Mataray"
> The bellboy who showed us our rooms is not answering our questions.
Simple questions like what's the difference with the room types, etc.
> When we asked for his permission if we could take pictures his answer, "Bawal po, nakita niyo naman na yung rooms eh explain niyo na lang sa kanila." Good Answer. Kainis.
> I know it's not much to complain about but if we will be their client we expect to be treated like one.

We are still waiting for a ocular visit at Eastwood Richmonde Hotel.

Happy preps. :)

That's it. Till Next Time.

Happy Preps... :)

Meeting with Lara

Days Left: 176 days as of today

Last Saturday (March 12) we had our meeting with our coordinator and I asked my MOH to accompany us so that she could meet her as well. Good thing I have my MOH beside me because Charles is not very much hearing what we are saying, he keeps on leaving us and walking around the mall... :) Oh Men!!!!!

The meeting went well. She gave me the name of a Florist because I think that's the only missing link for our wedding. We are scheduled to go to dangwa on the 26th.

We go over the suppliers that we booked already and the payments that we made. We noted some questions that need to be asked especially with the church. That's about it so far.

(MOH Cjae, Me, & Our sumesexy na Coordinator Lara)

(Finally napirmi din siya samin)

Happy preps. :)

That's it. Till Next Time.

Happy Preps... :)

6 months more

Days Left: 182 days as of today

6 more months before our Big Day. I don't know what I'm feeling. I'm not nervous or excited yet. As for the wedding preps. We are moving a bit slow. I don't know why. Let's see what I'm doing right now.
  • I'm still updating and fixing our invitation design. Checking and checking it twice if I got the names right. -- DONE
  • Looking for a trinket to put on our wedding cord. -- DONE
  • Still waiting for the confirmation of my possible HMUA if he's available on my date. -- DONE
  • MOH and I are trying to decide what gowns is suitable for my ento. Email back and forth.
  • Waiting for the confirmation of our possible first pre-nup venue. -- DONE
  • Done with our wedding rings just need to go there 2 mos before the wedding for the final design and fitting.
I think that's about it for now.

Happy preps. :)

That's it. Till Next Time.

Happy Preps... :)
