Things I learned so far

Planning this wedding made me learn a few things and I’ll try to enumerate them:

  1. PROMPTLY REPLYING TO EMAILS IS AN ALIEN THING FOR MOST BUSINESSES IN THE PI. Maybe I just got used to the way things work here in Singapore, send an email and you’d get a reply within 24 hours and if you don’t, you’ll receive an apologetic email. But no, this doesn’t apply to the Philippines. Send an email and a week passed by and you still won’t receive a reply unless you bug them with RESEND emails, call them or have someone personally visit their office.  If it’s our lucky day and you receive a reply, usually it will not contain all the information that you requested and will lead to more frustrating email exchanges.
  2. I LOVE BULLETS. I found myself sending emails to suppliers which are very detailed and in bullet forms. I like bullets because they make my long questions seem short, they simplify my life and keeps things organized!
  3. I AM FICKLE. I change my mind every now and then so more than a year of preparation is just enough time. I have more than a year to think thoroughly on what things we really want for the wedding. But how come I booked our venue, photographer and videographer so easily? It’s because I have been researching since 2009 when I was helping my sister with her wedding so come my turn, I basically already know which suppliers I want. It’s just the small details now that’s brings out the fickleness in me.
  4. I CAN GET IMPATIENT. Late email replies. Enough said.
  5. I DON’T LIKE STIFF & CHOREOGRAPHED POSES. I tend to cringe whenever I see pictorials that are super choreographed.  I fall in love with random, stolen and heartfelt photos.
  6. YOU’D GET SUCKED IN THE WEDDING PREPARATIONS. This probably won’t be the case for grooms to be, but I’m sure a lot of brides could relate. Once you’ve started the wedding preparations, it just sucks the life out of you. Ok, it’s just an exaggeration but you get what I mean. Before we booked all major suppliers, I would sometimes be half-awake in the middle of the night just thinking about it. LOL. I know. Sometime in the middle of a day, you’d see a nice color – ooohh perfect wedding motif, you’d hear a nice song – oohh perfect wedding party song, you’d see a dress – oo this would look good on the bridesmaids. I’m proud to say that I a slowly graduating from this phase, or so I think?
So far these are all I could think of! All in all it’s a good experience thus this blog exists to document it all! Yay!
