    recently, the wedding of my tita was held in a small chapel ng retreat house of a university in our hometown. yung isang kamag anak ay ninang and as the ceremonies were ending, dumating ang anak nya na dun nag-aaral sa college. siguro sinabihan na dun nalang mag hapunan. naka jeans and t-shirt... shempre galing school eh. ang masaklap pa... nagdala pa ng mga 6 classmates... all wearing jeans and shirts. wow, di ba nakaka grrrr talaga?

    what i also hate is people who attend only the reception and not the ceremony. as in halos ang konti konti lang ng people sa church tapos nakikita mo sa pwesto mo sa presidential table na parang times 3 ata ang bisita ah. Nye!

    Ah basta ako, wala akong pakialam kung magtampo pa ang mga kamaganak ko pag di ko sila inimbita. Di naman kami close, ano. Eh sa mahirap talaga ang perang kitain.

    Sa akin naman may ishare akong experience sa debut ng client ko sa Camelot Hotel in QC.100 guests target nya around 75 lang umattend.tapos may 18 roses,18 candles, and 18 wishes.Ang nakakainis sa mga guests pinipilit naming mag proxy sa mga di naka attend na entourage ayaw nila talaga.Nag mamakaawa na staff ko kse nga kawawa naman kung 12 lang ang wishes nya dba...yung iba na teens ayaw talaga tumayo.parang as respect man lang sana sa debutante na nakikain sila e di dapat man lang mag participate naman sila sa program.
    Aba sabe nung isang girl sa staff ko..."pwede ba wag nyo na ako kulitin please...ayaw ko nga e" hay gusto sabihin ng staff ko na "hay nako sana di ka na lang umattend at wall flower ka lang" Sa inis ng staff ko hindi sya binigyan ng souvenier.

    jeez, all these stories I'm reading makes me appreciate all the more those people involved in getting married! from the coordinators who take on the headaches of getting the details just right, to the couple who had to deal with nerves frayed further by GFHs -- saludo ako!

    tuloy, I'm thinking if i ever march down the aisle, gagawin ko ang ceremony sa tuktok ng Mt. Pulag in December (imagine being at the peak of a 10k high mountain with temps at a freezing level). ang makakasama sa reception yung mga nag-survive lang ng hike!

    looking back at my wedding 2 years ago... grabe, disappointed talaga ako sa mga bisita ng asawa ko, expecially mga kamaganak nya sa father side!


    grabe, buti nalang maaayos pa din ang kinalabasan.. i want to make it perfect sana for my dream wedding day pero hindi mo talaga maiiwasan *** ganung aberya..

    eat and run guests, nagkaubusan ng souveniers, mga me sariling mundo na guests, mga pasaway na bata...

    hay, buti nalang maganda talaga ako nung kasal ko at hindi nahalata na muntik na akong mahimatay sa sobrang asar sa kanila

    -- i agree wid everything said here. indeed, mahilig tayong mga Pilipino s aganyan. I remember sa kasal ng ate ko last 1997, tight nga ang budget...nagsipagbibit pa. It's crazy lalo na pag buffet... kakahiya kasi pag maubusan ka ng pagkain.. dame pa nakapila, wala ng ulam, kanin na lang natira.

    anyway... guess ***, it also happens sa ibang lugar, like dito sa Canada. I remember i organized a 65th & retirement party for a family friend. Wala ako tulug sa kakaedit sa seat plan, it almost worked out kaso un nga pilipino, me dadating pa ren kahit hindi nagconfirm. What I did was... we asked for volunteers to be ushers/usherettes. It's like 9 of them. It really helped. I assigned them 3 tables each and make sure ni guide nila sa table ang mga guests. Like proper places talaga. Place cards is also very important if gusto mo organized ang reception mo. And with usherettes/usher keeping an eye on their table... me hiya pa ren naman sila minsan(ang mga guests i mean). U don't need to hire.. all you have to do is look for volunteers na may personality to be respected by the guests.

    As for the problem of guests arriving wid "bitbit"... don't worry kahit sa ibang lahi, it still happens. For my wedding this juLy... alam ko parang suntok sa buwan but i wud still try it. Save-the-date (a year ahead), Invitations with reply card. RSVP is not enough. sabi nga di yan maiintindihan lalo na ng mga taga probinsya (which mostly my relatives would come from). Half ng guests ko is from the city.. im counting for them to be proper enough to know not to bring bitbit unless they informed me otherwise. I would send them Invit with Reply Card stating the name of the people na pupunta. I know it's a lot of things to do but I hope it will help. I know nasa dugo na nating mga Pilipino but I still believe marunong pa naman siguro sila magbasa at mag-alala na un lang ang pangalan na sinulat sa reply card nila. Above all, make sure ang reply envelope ay may return-stamp. Always, sasabihin nila wala sila pambayad sa stamp. It's costly but U want an organized wedding. YOU WOULD take that ONE STEP off the notch to try everything to make it a success.

    Again... Pilipino nga tayo, pero halos sa atin me Pinag-aralan. As for my relatives from probinsya, I asked my mother to teLL them na magdecide sila and to give it to me personally the reply card with the names kung sino ang pupunta(with limitations based sa kung ilan ang sinaad ko na number of person sa reply card). OO me magtatampo... but IT IS your wedding. If di sila pumunta... ayaw mo noon me mainvite ka pang iba. They don't pay for your wedding. U invite them.. they shud know the STOPS!! alam ko me matitigas ang ulo... so iimbitahin mo pa ba ang tao na alam mo pasaway lang? Nakipagdebate ako sa nanay ko.. me gusto sya imbitahin, ayaw ko imbitahin. I would like to invite people who wud give me the respect I deserve on my wedding day. I dont wanna invite people whom I deem it unproper to be there on my wedding. Meaning, don't invite people cos gusto sila imbitahin ng pinsan mo o ng bestfriend mo. You dont know those people. So invite people na kilala mo!!! That way they would know YOU WANT AN ORGANIZE WEDDING ^_^

    Congratz sa lahat ng Ikakasal this year!! mabuhay kayo!!!

    when my brother got married super solemn nung ceremony kaya lang malaki kasi yung family ng sis-in-law ko and karaykaray nila yung mga pamangkin nila na takbuhan ng takbuhan. hindi man lang sinasaway nung mga magulang (mga kapatid nung bride)

    inis na inis mom ko! wala na nga silang gastos hindi man lang nakahalata. hmP!

    Dapat state it in your wedding invitations that uninvited guests pay P500 (or P1000) / head to be admitted. I am pretty sure RSVP will be strictly observed.

    Ano ba ang perfect wedding? Yung parang wedding ng mga artista sa Hollywood? Ako meron suggestions para "perfect " yung "dream" wedding.

    1.) invite people na mapera pa sa yo. cgurado ako they can afford to buy a formal wear "worthy" para sa occassion. Yung tipong mas masarap pa ang pang- araw araw na food nila kesa sa wedding spread mo. They wont care about bringing tupperware kase meron silang personal chef sa bahay.

    2.) maglagay ng security guard at mag require ng ID upon entry together with the Invitation. Yung talagang invited *** ang pwedeng pumasok. Plus escorted sa designated seat.

    3.) Lagyan ng warning labels ang centerpiece, cake, give aways...PLS DO NOT TOUCH UNTIL THE BRIDE TELLS U. or BAWAL PITASIN ANG MGA BULAKLAK.

    4.) Wag imbitahin yung mga mahihihirap at walang pinag-aralan mong kamag-anak..baka mapapahiya ka pa sa ibang friends at kakilala mo na may kamag-anak ka palang "beneath them/you". And how dare them ride those nasty jeepneys at ipark pa sa harap ng hotel/reception? What an eye sore!

    5.) Lagyan ng guard ang buffet table at ang cake!

    6.) Before mo invite ang mga ninang/tito/tita ask them can you afford to buy a new dress? Kasi if hindi naman i will invite my neighbor na mayaman na di ko naman kilala.

    7.) If may mga dalang bata ang iba..make sure meron kang "day care" center". Those little brats will surely ruing your wedding

    8.) Pagbayarin ng kinain nila ang unang umalis na di pa tapos ang program. Aba pinakain mo na nga di pa kayang umupo at pumalakpak sa yo? Mga walang utang na loob.

    My wedding was 5 years ago. Di perfect kasi daming guest from hell. Pero masaya kahit magulo. Nagpasalamat ako dumating mga kamag-anak ko galing probinsya. Kahit nakamaong at kupas na tshirt *** sila kase alam ko yun *** kaya ng "budget". Ang jeep na sinakyan nila alam kong ambag-ambag lahat sa gastos. Ang mga pamangkin ko first time nakakita nga magandang cake, sobra tuwa at excited tumikim.

    Madami na akong wedding napuntahan. Pero mas masaya pa rin sa lahat yung simpleng kasal sa probinsya. Nagkatay ng 3 baboy at tulong-tulong mga kapitbahay sa pagluluto sa ilalim ng manga. Ang utensil di uniform kasi hiram lahat sa ibat-ibang pamilya. Ang cake 3 layers *** na binili sa bakery ng bayan, halatang mumurahin. May inuman at kantahan. Sa gabi naman konting sayawan. Walang dress code. Invited lahat sa barrio kahit mahirap *** sila.

    Ano ba purpose ng wedding mo? To share a special day to people you love and who loves you or just for picture taking para maganda sa video at album at sa facebook? Akala ko kasi wedding CELEBRATION at hindi wedding PRESENTATION.

    This deserves a repost.

    But still, kanya kanyang preference yan. While other couples would love to have a "fiesta-like" atmosphere sa wedding nila, yung iba would rather have a solemn wedding attended by their closest families and friends. So gatecrashers and those who would make their wedding a day-care center would really bother them.

    Yung iba naman budgeted lang yung wedding, so it's understandable kung maging maingat sila sa uninvited guests.

    I'm from Batangas and I know what you mean about weddings in the province. Sobra saya talaga. Sa bahay namin dati kinasal pinsan ko. The night before palang may sayawan na.

    it's almost the wedding month and i'd like to share my experience regarding some of my wedding guests..i had my wedding 5 years ago..if i have a choice i'd only invite those that i have close relationship with..immediate family and friends lang..kaso ayaw naming sumama ang loob ng nanay ko..kaya dumagdag ang relatives..we initially planned it in the province kaso ayaw ko namang maging piyesta and kasal ko..tapos yung dadalo hindi mo naman halos kakilala..so we had it in Baguio..during the reception we had a program..di pa natatapos ang program, i have this not-so-close-Aunt na bigla na lang binitbit ang flower centerpiece at nagpaalam ng umalis sa mom ko..she didn't even have the courtesy to say goodbye to us..wala kaming nagawang mag-asawa kundi magtinginan at umiling..so much for relatives..

    Nagugulat na ako dun sa budget na several hundreds of thousands para sa wedding Grabe.

    I think it's best that you withhold from the guests kung saan ang location ng reception until after the wedding ceremonies.

    Tapos dalawa ang reception. Isa sa location (catered) at isa sa bahay (lutong bahay)
    tapos provincial guests doon sa lutong bahay.

    Or better yet, destination weddings. Sure iyan hindi makakapunta yung wedding guests from hell at hindi iyan uuwi ng maaga hahaha.

    may magandang island sa boracay yung puro bato bato 50k lang per day yung isla pero problema logistics dun.

  17. #77
    Thanks sa lahat nag post ng mga experiences nila on their wedding day. I am having my wedding soon... at least we know ni h2b on how emotionally prepared we should be esp. on the reception part. hehe
    Cheers!!!

  18. #78
    Ask ko lang, since guest na rin naman ang usapan. Pag sa mga caterer ba counted sa kanila yun gmga kids? Siguro mga ages 0-3 years old? Yung mga wala pang matinong kain?

  19. #79
    Hi Tripnienchong -

    Nope, and kiddos na ganun, hindi pa kasama sa count.
