Today we had our wedding rings made and also had our final meeting with our caterer. Our jeweler Amy Derricks, was referred by Dave’s mom. It was interesting to see how gold is melted, weighed and formed. When gold is melted, a percentage of the total amount gets lost in the process so your jeweler might have to add a bit more gold, just to keep up with your chosen design and ring preferences. In our case, Ms Amy added a little bit because we wanted our rings to be a bit thick and sturdy. We also intentionally made it a bit loose, just in case we get chubbier fingers in the future, masusuot pa din namin the rings. Hehe.
We then headed to the Josiah’s office for our final food tasting and to settle our payment. We’re very happy with the package Josiah offered us earlier this year—they gave us additional pasta, meat dishes, welcome treats, beverages and they even included our wedding cake! Apart from the reception package, since our wedding is just in one venue, we availed of their ceremony set-up for an additional P15,000. To get a glimpse of what we’re having for the big day, watch the vlog!
The caterer is one of the crucial suppliers wedding couples have to book right away. I’m grateful that I get to work with different caterers for my wedding and event projects but it’s different when you’re choosing one for your big day!
Budget of course, is a huge factor + the number of guests, the menu and packages being offered. When we booked our caterer, it seemed like everything just fell into place. Dave and I aren’t that fussy naman but we of course want to make sure that our families are fed well. There were special discounts that were offered on the day of our initial food tasting and we were also given freebies.
We weren’t really considering a separate wedding cake, so we’re happy that even the cake was included in our package!
Hey everyone! Here’s a peek of another wedding workday. After two years of planning and exchanging emails, Juan and Joanne finally tied the knot. The ceremony was held at St. Andrew the Apostle Parish in Bel-Air, Makati followed by the reception at the Silk Pavilion of Blue Leaf Events Pavilion. Watch the VLOG below:
