- Wedding: May 2012
Hello everyone! And welcome to those filipino brides who were drawn to the title. I wanted to start a new filipino wedding thread. I’ve been reading a few of the past posts and I feel like I am reading about myself! I am 100% Pinay. My fiance is An Irish_French_Czech mix.
When I was a small kid, I remember watching my grandparents’ Golden Wedding Anniversary on VHS. And They celebrated by renewing thier vows. They got married again! The dress, the barongs, all their children, including my dad, were in the wedding party. They did everything of course, the cadle, the veil, the cord. They even released white doves at the reception which everyone chased and the winners got to keep them as pets.
From then on, I knew I was going to have the same traditions. We are incorporating almost all the elements of a Filipino Catholic wedding ceremony into our ceremony.
I have always marched to the beat of my own drum, and planning my wedding was no exception, And of course, my family had thier opinions.
I choose the colours: tiffany blue, white, red and orange. I was promptly told by an aunt that ‘it’s ugly’. My mother said it was too many colours. I stuck to my guns, and now everyone is excited to see all the colours come together.
I designed the invites. My mother was disappointed they were not white. I included al the fixin’s of a Filipino invitation. Besides the invitation itself, I had a page honouring our family, wedding party, and most importantly our sponsors.
I invited my whole family. And by that I mean aunts and uncles, cousins. I could not invite any of my mom’s cousins and such because our venue only holds so many people.
We are 2 months away and I can’t wait for the planning to be over!
