Wedding Things We Spent On: Hotel for Preps

It’s very important to be relaxed a few days into your wedding. I know this is easier said than done because even I was admittedly still tying a few loose ends the day before we tied the knot! We chose Discovery Suites in Ortigas because it was one of the nearest hotels to our wedding venue and it was right smack in the middle of malls so in case I had to go get something last minute, it was much more convenient than having to travel to and from Ortigas and Makati.

While there are other hotels in Ortigas, we ended up at Discovery because it was highly recommended by a friend. There were also good reviews regarding the hotel’s amenities, their brand of service and the sizes of their rooms.

Our Wedding Day Vlog

I thought it was highly possible for me to vlog the whole wedding day. I needed help! I’m thankful that our wedding photographers, my bridesmaids and maid of honor were more than happy to step in and tell the story of our wedding day.

Things I learned?

  • Matagal pala talaga yung prep shoot. Of course it looks so easy and fast when the photos are put together na for the SDE but… haha let me tell you NO. With all due respect to our photographers, they really did a great job and I know they wanted to get a lot of amazing shots because this is their craft. I guess I just had to properly psyche myself. Hindi kasi professional mowdel si Ingrid. :p
  • EAT. AS IN. It’s bound to be a long day.
  • We should have taken pictures with our family and other guests in our photobooth. 😦 I’m thankful that our supplier Photomocoh extended their hours just to make sure that Dave and I had shots of ourselves at the photobooth. That was very nice of them.
  • Even if you think you’ve planned everything, you have to learn to let go and entrust the execution to the coordinators and people involved. Yes, there will be things that won’t go according to the outline but you just have to let go and ENJOY EVERY SINGLE MOMENT because the time just zooms through so quickly.

Enjoy our wedding vlog!
