Weddings and Wedding Dresses

Getting married? Have you picked up a wedding dress already? I have! I know it is still too early, heck, I am not even engaged, but who knows? It is better to be prepared at all times. Anyway, I have here two of my most favorite wedding dresses from Dress First.



This particular mermaid style dress is strapless with beaded lace overlay. The train satin tulle is long enough for dramatic entrance and exit photos. This is available in four colors (white, champagne, ivory and pink) but for a conservative church such as ours, it is white or ivory for me. This is currently on sale for $441.99 previously $579.


A princess will never be caught dead not owning even a single ball gown so if you are dreaming of a princess-like wedding, a ball gown type of wedding dress is perfect. I especially like this one-shoulder ball gown with organza train and ruffle flowers. I mean, it is a ball gown yet it is not overpowering the bride. This is currently on sale at $260.00 previously $322... the price closed the deal!

I have lots of friends since high school and most of them are married now. But, believe me, I have attended only one wedding out of the many. They wed overseas, that's why.

The first wedding of a friend that I have attended was about three years ago. They were already married in San Francisco, USA for more than a year when they decided to renew their vows in the Philippines in front of their families and friends. My friend wore a simple yet stunning wedding gown--it resembles Duchess Kate's--that accentuated her already glowing beauty. It was a simple yet solemn ceremony held in Our Lady of the Lourdes Church in Tagaytay City. The reception followed at Taal Vista Hotel just a few minutes away from the church.

I don't know of any woman who does not dream of marrying the perfect guy for her. I myself dreams of walking down the aisle wearing my wedding dress toward the altar where my beau is nervously and excitedly waiting. My guy friend asked me one time what is it about weddings and wedding dresses that excite women. Well, I just answered, "it is like being a princess for a day, and we do not want that day to be just an ordinary day so we have to wear something special."

Here are some tips before you buy a wedding dress... be sure it fits and hugs you in all the right places, you don't want to look like you are wearing a potato sack or bandage on your special day; don't limit yourself to one store or designer; and give yourself enough time to decide for your dress.

Good luck on your wedding dress hunting!

Dream Interpretation: Collapsing Building

I had a dream last night about a building collapsing with me and some other co-workers inside it.
We're cleaning up some rooms at the first floor while construction men, well, do their job in other parts of the building particularly the third floor. After hours of cleaning, my co-workers and I decided to call it a day and get our things at the third floor. When we got there, the building started to tilt and in just a few seconds, everything collapsed. None in the group got hurt as the floor we're standing on wasn't damaged, in fact, it slid down a slope while we still hold on to dear life. At the end of a downhill ride, we found ourselves on a lake. I saw some of my co-workers crying and calling for help.
********************
To dream of cleaning, according to Dream Moods, implies you are overcoming major obstacles in life. You are moving ahead toward a new stage in your life.
To see a building in a dream is to see the self. How high you are in the building represents your …

Random Clicks: Villa Buenaflor Beach Resort

We will have a seminar tomorrow and one of my tasks from being a coordinator is to make sure the venue is perfect so I checked it today together with my colleague.  A lot of things have changed since the last time we had a seminar in Villa Buenaflor Beach Resort in Brgy. Calibuyo, Tanza, Cavite and I wouldn't miss the chance of having some clicks before we call it a day.
 This is the view from the 2nd floor of the newly built hotel facing Manila Bay and Bataan Province.

The Corregidor Island in Bataan is just an hour away from Villa Buenaflor.
