Wedding Suppliers' Ratings Part 4

Bride’s Shoes: Suki


Peso Power: 1.2k

My shoes was one thing that took me ages to find. I didn’t want the usual white pointed bridal shoes. I wanted one which I could still use after the wedding (at parties, maybe?) When I saw the shoes from Suki, I thought to myself, this is it…I found my shoes. What worried me were the heels. It was about 3.5 inches. I was only confortable wearing up to 2 inch heels.

I gave it 4 stars because…my feet hurt…maybe because they were new… =)

Groom’s Shoes: Milano


Peso Power: 800

Another last minute buy. Nice shoes, affordable.

Invites/Guestbook/Unity Candle/Missallette: DIY


Peso Power: Labor of Love

Wedding Invites are very expensive and I didn’t want to have an invite which looks the same as any other invite. So I decided to make our own. It was really a labor of love because I only got to do the invites during weekends. I was thankful because Jake was also eager to help. Rating is 5 stars and beyond!!

Guestbook/Missalette/Unity Candle: DIY

I also didn’t want the traditional signature frame. I wanted a customized guestbook – with our pictures on it. but since guestbook lay-outing and printing cost a lot, I made our own guestbook. And I loved them!

The Missalette Covers and Unity Candle were also customized by me! Simple, yet appealing.

Bridal Car/Tarpaulin: CRV c/o Kuya Engel


Peso Power: Free

We were so lucky to borrow Kuya Engel’s CRV as my bridal car. Special thanks to him because he served as our driver for the day. He also provided the tarpaulin and projector. By the way, he was also our ninong.

Pre-Cana Seminar: Jesus the Divine Healer Parish

Source: PCJ Parish

Peso Power: 1k


A recommended seminar for all soon-to-be married couples. Very enlightening. The 2-day session was really worth it.

Bible: Salesiana Don Bosco


Peso Power: Php300

I wanted a white bible. We have searched different book stores and religious stores but we found none. When we visited Fr. Rene, we dropped by the Book store in Don Bosco and there we found our Bible. I gave it 4 stars because I wanted a bigger one sana. Unfortunately, this is all they have. It’s a cute bible nonetheless.
