Happy 2010 !!!

2010 is a big year for me and my fiance, since we're going to have a new life together in this year as husband and wife (whooo.... goosebumps). We're feeling excited and nervous at the same time, but as long as we're together, I'm sure that everything will be just fine. But for now we will be celebrating our new year apart, but with our respective families. This will be our last New year celebration being single.

New life ... New Beginning... HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!!!

Marriage License Requirements in the Philippines

We have less that 4 months to prepare for our wedding but it seems like I still have a lot of things to do despite the fact that I already accomplished almost half of our wedding preparation.

Anyway, after this 2010 New Year celebration, we're going to file for our marriage license. Actually I wanted to file it as early as possible so that I don't need to worry about it, but I learned that the license is only valid for 120 days or else it will be invalid and you have to get and pay another license, so I have to wait until January to file for our license. By researching, I also learned that me and my fiance should file a sworn application separately for each license with the proper civil registrar. Another thing is that we have to wait fo another 10 days from filing before we can get our marriage license. I've also read in some article that one reason for the wait, is that they have to post the name of the person who are filing for marriage license in a bullitine board for the citizens to see... Why? I'm not sure if it's for real... hihihihi!!!

Here are the requirements in applying for a Marriage License :

* Original Birth Certificate : Certified True Copy of the Couple. This should be issued by NSO with respective registry number.

* Parent's Consent : For 18-21 years old ; and Parent's Advise For 21-25 years old. In the Philippines 18 years old is the legal age to get married but a written consent from their parents or gurdian is needed. While the contracting party from 22-25 of age should present a written advise from their parents or gurdian indicating that they are aware or the couples marriage. (We don't actually need this in our case, since I'm already 26 and my fiance just turned 29 yesterday).

* Certificate of Attendance : It's a kind of seminar or most commonly known as Pre-marital counseling and Family planning seminar. This should be conducted by the Division of Maternal and Child Health at the City Hall in the same municipality where the couple filed for the marriage license.

* CENOMAR "Certificate of no Marriage" (Singleness): This is to certify that neither of you have been married before. I'm not sure if it's really required because I read some thread that some couples didn't even use their CENOMAR . I still need to ask about this.

How low can you go...

I think I'm a modern bride but I still want to be traditional in a way. Recently I told my fiance that I want to wear a vintage veil instead of the traditional long veil, he said okay but he still insist that a long traditional veil is better and he said that he want something to pull up before he kiss me "isn't it sweeeeett...". So now I'm back to the traditional long veil, but it's okay because I can still be a modern bride by having a low back wedding gown. Since I'm going to have a trumpet silhouette, I think having a low back gown would be great...

How low can you go.....

Unique Invitation Wordings

We only have less than 4 months to prepare for our wedding. I've accomplished most of the important details but we still haven't figure out what kind of invitation we're going to have. We are planning to make a DIY invitation , since one of my fiance's friend "Anthony" who is also one of our groomsmen promised us to make our wedding invitation as his gift for us. But we will still give him an idea on how we want our invitation to be. I'm thinking of a simple but fun and unique invitation design and wordings.
So here are some ideas I saw in the net :

Sample Pre-nup by: MYA

Last weekends we had another sample photo shoot in The fort. It was actually after my fiance went to their project nearby. On our way home we saw this abandoned construction truck / bulldozer in the middle of the field so we took the opportunity to take some pictures. Actually there was a lot of construction workers watching us while were shooting but it was ok because Mya did a really great shots of me and my fiance and we really had fun!

Here are some of the pictures Mya took:
