Capiz Shell Wedding Souvenir

Our friends Kris and Florj is getting married this coming Monday (Nov. 30). I'm so excited to be part of their special day. Anyways 3 weeks ago we went out with this couple to look for their sponsor's wedding favor and have a bonding time together before they finally tie the knot. Actually they are going to give their sponsors a Coffee Table book, but since they can't give it right after their wedding they decided to give them something instead.
We saw this cute Capiz shell dancing woman figure to give their sponsor's that they will surely love.

Fabric Search for my Bridesmaids Dress

I finally choose the perfect dress for my bridesmaids. My bridesmaids consist of my very close friends, niece, soon-to-be-sister-in-law and cousins. I may say that my bridesmaids are so "maarte" like me anyways, since I'm going to have a black and white motif, I want my bridesmaids to have a unique black and white dress. I already have the design but I won't show it yet.. hehehe... I really love my bridesmaids dress, I even want to have one for me...
For my couture, I'm going to have my fiance's aunt to make the bridesmaids dresses for me... She's been a dressmaker for a long time and I'm sure that she's really good and she can make my bridesmaids dresses pretty. Thanks Ditse!
We went to Divisoria the other day to buy the fabric and other things to be use for the dresses. It was Wednesday and it wasn't so crowded like weekends but still a lot of people go to Divi even on weekdays.. I love going to thrift market to buy stuff that's why I was so happy to be in Divi.
Oh another story, when we finally reached the place in Divi where fabrics are being sold for a very low price, there was this two mothers, they are like in their 40's or something they were buying fabrics too for their daughter's prom. One of them asked me what kind of fabric are we going buy and I told them it's Chiffon, and they asked me as well on where am I going to use it, I told them it's for my bridesmaids, they were shocked and asked about our wedding motif, I bravely told them that I'm going to have a black and white motif for my wedding as I showed them the picture of my design that I printed. They were like, "really?!?!? the design is really nice , but don't you have any other color in mind to replace the black?" and I was like "No, that's is our motif (with a sarcastic smile)" . But actually that is what en joy about this wedding preparation. Having an unusual motif like black and white can make people shocked and think... I just love the look on their faces whenever they hear that we're going to have a black and white motif... hehehehe....
Again, I'll say it again, and I won't be tired telling this....
THIS IS MY WEDDING, I CAN DO WHAT I WANT AND I WILL HAVE IT MY WAY! (ooopsss.... Translation again: This is OUR wedding, We can do anything WE want and WE will have it OUR way. )

Here are some of the pictures I took from our trip to Divi:

Vest For My Groomsmen

My original plan is to have my groomsmen wear a suit since I want them to be really formal. But considering the weather on our wedding day which is actually summer season in the Philippines, I can imagine them sweating and feeling uncomfortable because of their suits, so I had a change of heart. But I don't want them to wear the usual "Barong" that most of the groomsmen wear because it's very typical and will definitely not compliment my motif which is Black and White. So I decided to just have them wear a black vest match with a white long sleeves and I also want them, to have a uniformed black and white stripped slim tie if possible. I think they will all look good and more comfortable with a vest. It's also a good thing because I want my groom to be the only one to wear a suit or tuxedo so there will be a distinction, anyways he's the highlight of this event of course next to me hehehe....
Some might say that the groomsmen might look like a waiter or an usherette in a movie theater, but as for me if they know how to bring themselves not to look like one it's impossible to be one. Anyways I'm the bride, this is my wedding, I know what's best for my wedding , and I'll do it my way.
(TRANSLATION: I'm the bride of my GROOM, this is OUR wedding , We know what's best for OUR wedding, and WE will do it our way. hehehehe)

Just an idea on how they should wear the vest :
