Wedding Things We Spent On: Make-up | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

When it comes to your look for the big day, I believe it’s best to leave it to the pros. I’m no Kate Middleton (heard she did her own make-up for her wedding day) so I booked pro make-up artist Yang G. who is a friend and churchmate.

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.

Wedding Things We Spent On: Venue

Our ceremony venue and reception venue was just one and the same place: our home church, Greenhills Christian Fellowship. The venue is significant because this is where we became friends, got to know each other, grew spiritually and served together in ministry. We booked Auditorium B (where the Sunday worship services are held) which had more than enough space for our 100 guests.
