Our DIY Wedding : The Preparation

Better late than never. Yes, it's been a more than a month since our wedding and finally I got the time and zeal to reminisce the preparations that we had on our May 5, 2012 wedding. It is nice to bring back those efforts exerted, the fun at shopping items, those sweet memories, relationships tested, friends' helping hands and God's overflowing providence.

Let me start off with the bridal shower and/or stag party combined. It is a tradition in the community that when someone's getting married, brothers and sisters will gather together to have fun with the couple. Games, honoring and advises.. and lots of laughter 

What comes next are the little things about wedding. 

We had marriage ban posted weeks before the wedding! :)

Dave and I wanted to have a simple and personalized affair with the people dear to us. We decided to have things crafted by ourselves that reflect who we are us a couple. Laid back, simple and sweet.

Groomsmen and sponsors' boutonnieres that I did myself :)

Inspiration that I got from the web for one of the flower girls' sign to carry!

Mustache for the photo wall that we also did ourselves!

The signage at the photo wall :)

DIY flower girl basket :)
Love and support from family and friends are for me the best part of any wedding :)

Our wedding was also DIO (Did It Ourselves). It wouldn't had been possible if not for all the people who had always been there for us.

 And many many more... Will be posting the wedding day's details in the next post.
