Another fitting done. My gown now has bits of beading and details, so it’s getting more and more exciting! Kristel also cut off bits of excess cloth, so I can’t get bigger from now on. No rice dinner mode until the wedding. I can’t wait to see what my gown looks like on my next fitting in November. By then, it will only be around 3 weeks until the big day — panic alert!
I had my 2nd fitting (lining) earlier today at Kristel Yulo’s studio. Thanks to my dear friend Janine for waking up early and coming with me!
After my fitting, we went to the Purple Oven near the National Shrine of the Sacred Heart Church and talked about details of our DIY projects. As usual, it left me wanting to do a lot of DIY stuff, I just wish we would have the time to finish them all!
Earlier today, I had my muslin fitting with my gown designer, Kristel Yulo. There’s not much I can see yet, only that I might have scoliosis! When Kristel and her assistant had the muslin pattern on me, it was a bit crooked, so she asked if I had scoliosis. I’m thinking it can probably be due to my past pregnancy with Sam; babies absorb a lot of their mother’s calcium during their stay in the womb. So that’s why Sam has such strong bones! 😛
Another 2 suppliers down! I’m very happy to say that we have booked our wedding gown designer and videographer! 🙂
We got Kristel Yulo for my wedding gown. At first, we thought her packages were too pricey for us. But when we saw the design sketches she made on our 2nd meeting… WOW. My hubby immediately fell in love with the designs — yes, HE fell in love! Of course, I LOVED the designs, too, but the design concept actually came from HIM, so when Jaraiza (Kristel’s sister) saw the look on JC’s face, she started laughing and said “Dream wedding mo?”. JC knew then that we HAD TO get this designer no matter what.
For our video, we booked Derek Yee. We have been watching a lot of sample SDEs online from different suppliers, and we absolutely loved Derek’s work, especially the one he did for a wedding in Boracay. Hopefully, he comes up with an equally great SDE for our wedding, too!
Next supplier in line is the designer for the entourage (with moms) + hubby’s attire. We are planning to get Sheah Designs, just waiting for her revised proposal. Hopefully, we get a good deal and have this one confirmed as well. 🙂
