It’s the last day of February! In terms of wedding planning, there’s not much to update. Since we’ve pretty much booked our major suppliers, it’s more of a waiting game right now because the wedding documents we need to prepare are a bit time sensitive. Most (if not all) need to be secured 4 to 6 months before the wedding day, so we’ll probably start moving again in March or April.
I mentioned it on my Instagram, but I’m the luckiest bride-to-be in the world to have an extremely talented sister (who happens to be one of my Maids of Honor) and cousin (who is a Bridesmaid!) to have worked on our wedding collaterals. My sister first started by creating a wedding logo and illustrating the lilac flowers based on my Pinterest board, and the style guide I put together. The mood board below captures most of the pegs in my style guide deck:
Thanks to what she crafted, the Cupcake and I were able to create a Facebook Event Page that acts as our digital Save the Date, since some of our guests live abroad and we wanted to give them enough time to arrange a trip to the Philippines.
After working on the Save the Date visual, I then asked my cousin to work on the Wedding Dress Code, since a few guests had started messaging me to ask what the dress code was. To keep with the light and bright feel of our wedding, the Cupcake and I agreed on a color palette for the ladies (Shades of Beige), and Traditional Barong for the gentlemen.
I’m so incredibly in love with everything, that I even made my sister’s artwork my desktop and phone wallpaper! I hope and pray that everything else will flow smoothly, and that September draws near already. More than the wedding itself, what I really look forward to is the married life with the Cupcake. That’s definitely going to be a whole new chapter to experience and write about!
