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.
When I started meeting my designer for my wedding gown, I didn’t fuss so much about wedding shoes. I know it had to flow with my gown’s overall look but it also had to be comfy. I’m no stranger to walking and standing for several hours and I know it can be very excruciating if the footwear is tortuous.
Earlier in my working life, I did go through a phase of buying and collecting beautiful shoes that were at least 4 inches because I love how high heels can make your legs and feet look sexier. While I still am particular about quality, style and durability, I have entered that life stage of embracing low-heeled shoes and tasteful flats because I’ve learned to prioritize my body alignment, foot and back health.. Walking and standing in high heels can be learned; you can train your body and muscles to get used to them, but one unfortunate miscalculated movement and you can trip, fall and injure yourself. I didn’t want that happening on my wedding day.
Looking for the right wedding shoes wasn’t such a long process for me because I knew what I was looking for: comfortable, tasteful and something that would go well with my gown. Also, since my gown was floor-length and had a train, I didn’t see the point of wearing heavily-decorated shoes. Check out the video below and I hope this helps ease the whole pressure of having to splurge on expensive wedding shoes.
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.
Hey everyone! Welcome to another video on my wedding planning series! In this video I talk about the things my husband and I were able to save up on. After making a list of your essentials and nice-to-haves, it’s easier to decide which ones you can scrimp or splurge on.
