The uptight and overly self-conscious crowd, weird and unnecessary moments during the looong reception programs, and the ceremony? (ugh) It’s like a slow moving motorcade, a procession in the name of boredom.
These are some of the reasons why I have become a non-avid fan of attending weddings. Probably because when I was young, my parents dragged me to gazillion weddings that I obviously did not enjoy!
But now, I have finally reached the age where many of my own friends are either in a serious relationship, are getting engaged, or are finally settling down and tying the knot. So whether I like it or not, there’s no escaping it.
This year I have attended a couple of weddings and I want to let you peek into one of the weddings I’ve been to recently.
Last November 17, my friends Abi and Desi finally took their vows of “till death do as part” and made it official.
When Abi got engaged, we all knew that it was going to be a beach wedding and we definitely knew where it was going to be held. So, as soon as the date was finalized my friends and I immediately booked a hotel and our plane tickets to the beautiful island of — Boracay!
For our gowns, Abi supplied us with the fabric and gave us the liberty to choose our own designs/tailor just as long as we keep to the theme: A simple white grecian dress.

Thank you Doris Cheong for our make up!
The bride’s uncle officiated the wedding.
Desi and Abi also made sure that their guests were entertained.
There was a fire works display, some fire dancers came and WOWed us, and of course — party music.

There are a lot more party photos but due to some restrictions and for dignity’s sake, I do not regret to say, we’re keeping the rest of the photos private! Hahaha.
Earlier I mentioned something about not being a fan of attending weddings… I’m still not. Probably you’re thinking “she looked like she had fun tho.” Well, I didn’t just have fun — I had a BLAST!
Congratulations Desi and Abi
