Wedding Things We Spent On | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

After making a list of our essentials and nice-to-haves, it was easier for us to assess which ones we’d allot more money for in our budget. When you’re planning your wedding, it’s important to remember that:

1) advice from experienced wedding professionals is valuable but be discerning as well. There are some that I have worked with who put the welfare of their clients and fellow suppliers above all, and then there are those who have a different agenda.

2) seeking inspiration is good but ultimately, it’s still YOUR WEDDING, so your rules and preferences will take precedence. Don’t allow popular trends and peer/family pressure to dictate how you’re supposed to wed.

Hope this video helps you out. By the way, I didn’t discuss wedding coordination just yet. That’s coming up in another video.

Bru and Aina’s Wedding

Hosted the wedding of Bru and Aina last October 21, 2012. What a day that was! I just came from the ER to confirm whether I had dengue or not. I remember praying real hard that I won’t be confined yet because I had a wedding to host!

Thank the good Lord because the doctor let me go. She said my platelets at 150 were still within the normal range, but I had to come back the next day for another CBC. Even though I was feeling weak, I drank my vitamins and the meds prescribed by the doctor. I mustered my strength and drove to Fernwood Gardens with my mom.
