Me Me Me! I’m a Pinay bride ;). Right now the bane of my existence is the guest list. Everything else about planning my wedding has been honky dory.

Haha, I just introduced myself on that “year-old” post. Anyways, I hate looking at our guest list! We want it to keep it medium-sized at about 150, and I keep seeing the list growing and growing…

250!!! in my mind I see 250 (because my mom knows the venue can hold up to 250 seated with dancing). I wanted 150. Now and again a relative will say they cannot attend, and then my mom goes to her B list to make sure the number adds up to 250.  NO B List!!!!! NO B List!!!! ;(

Will keep you posted on RSVP problems…I can’t wait. Argh.

PS, I love hazel920’s lechon dad…too cute!

hahahaaa!!  i LOOOOVE the lechon idea!  i would have that except for the small chunk of my extended flipino fam who are Seventh Day Adventists and dont eat pork!  imagine my 96 year old great grandpa seeing a whole roasted pig as he walks into my reception!  i swear though if he could, my dad would totally be cooking that lechon right there with your dad and talking about the old military days hazel!!  

 

im glad i stumbled across this filipina brides board.  im Marj, i live in jacksonville, fl.  my fiance (filipino too) is in the navy but is deployed right now till june.  we both come from military families which mean our guests will literally be flying in from all over the the world so we figured the easiest thing for everyone is to hold our wedding in orlando.  we’re currently at the very start of the planning process.   where is everyone from and where are you holding yours?

Hi Filipino Bees,

I’ve been lurking here as well for a while now, and wanted to find out if any of you are planning your weddings in the Philippines.  The reason is that I am, but am also planning a small Las Vegas one. 

Just wanted to touch base and find out what everyone’s experiences has been!  I live in Long Beach, CA but was born in Cebu, Philippines.

Hope to hear more stories from you guys!

@msqthoney:  that’s a really nice photo!  OMG!  where in Cebu did you go to school?  I went to USC-main graduated in ’92.  That was a long time ago…. I wanted to do my wedding here, but since all my family is in Cebu, have to do it there.  I know what you mean by drama.  Right now, there’s already a bit of it coming out.  Hopefully, I can convince everyone to calm down when I go to visit this May.  I’m more excited about my Vegas wedding than the Cebu one! πŸ™‚  Good Luck on your wedding too!
