quick update... 6 months before the big D

At almost 6 months before the wedding, we are slowly but continuously making progress on the preparation.

Yesterday, we met with one of the probable entourage couturier. I inquired and met some already but either they have a high basic rate or I don't like their style. I scheduled the visit with this couturier a few weeks back, but since my maid of honor and I only have this weekend free we made sure to seriously meet shortlisted designers.
He was very accommodating, gave suggestions on our ideas and has a rate that perfectly fits the budget. After meeting him, my MOH and I discussed over coffee the overall rating for this designer. She liked him and hopefully all our female entourage will feel the same.

My fiancé has been working hard on the task assigned to him. The monogram has been approved (by me of course!) and he's currently working on the invitation design. Target to complete this is June.

Overall, here's what we've accomplished
1. Church - Check
2. Reception (Venue and Caterer) - Check
3. Accommodation - Check
4. P/V - Check
5. BU P/V - Check
6. Bridal and Mom's Gown -Check
7. Lights and Sounds - Check
8. Choir - Check
9. Bridal Car - Check
10. Church and Entourage Flowers - Check

Our line-up of To-do's
1. Book HMUA
2. Book Entourage Couturier
3. Buy Wedding Rings
4. Buy Suit for the groom to be
5. Finalize invitation design
6. Print invitation
7. Prepare required documents for Church
8. Pre-nups and STD
9. Decide on PS, Entourage and Parents gifts

The list makes me want to panic... but still for 201 days, i think we have time to complete every to-dos and wish list and so... Good luck to us!

Fit to Wed

It's exactly 230 days before the big day, while the numbers are going down so should our weight. When you look at us (h2b and me) we are not super big, thank God or else i should have done this blog entry a year ahead, but still photos and videos somehow put some weight on you and so we should loose that extra pounds to look good on the captured moments.

And what is the cheapest and fun way to loose weight? Running. H2b and I will join our first ever Fun Run this coming May 16 at the Bonifacio Global City, Taguig.

To prepare for this, we jog/run almost everyday. I do this at home in the morning using the treadmill as I have a very unpredictable schedule at work, though not the ideal place to jog it's still is the most convenient and practical way. H2b is the opposite, he wants to run after work, around 6PM onwards and do it at the park. Though we don't practice and train together, in the end, we will still be together at the tournament. He will be competing on the 10K while I'm on the 5K.

Aside from running, we lessen our bad food intake but still have our cheat day so we don't deprive ourselves on simple pleasures.

It will still be a long way but with a supportive partner, focus and discipline we will be a fab couple on the big day! Go! Go!
