Another One??? I'm Not Complaining!

I don't know what's with 2011, must be because it's the year of the rabbit (they tend to do the deed a lot don't they?LOL), that a handful of people I know are having a baby or at least getting married and plan to have a child this year. For the nth time, I'm honored to be the bridesmaid of another wonderful friend, as she and now hubby exchanged vows in an intimate, romatic garden wedding in Monte De Portofino in Alabang. Best wishes and more love to my friends L and N!


Since it's an al fresco event at 4 in the afternoon, I decided to whip a no frills, youthful look that matched the sunny afternoon and flirty mini dress that I loved absolutely. (I highly recommend the designer! Buzz me if you want his number, his price is really reasonable.) I don't want too much makeup on because I'll be greasing in no time, and I don't want to be too concerned if my hairspray will hold mighty against the wind, so I just let it down au naturel. Hence, the very reserved, very mahiyain kunyari (shy type) look. Again, my decision to go black proved its anti-aging powers so I guess I'll be keeping this do for now. =)


Don't be fooled.

I love how flirty the dresses are! Done by Billy of Kaparez.


This is also my good friend J's first time to be part of a wedding entourage and she's very excited, and so I told her at once "magkulot ka!", (curl your hair!) and she did! She's so pretty no? =)



Sharing with you how warm and lovely that afternoon was


So, are you getting married or having a baby this year, too? =) Share your story will you? =)

  1. I've seen "year of the rabbit" in many posts the past month or so, but this is the first one to make the natural connection that you did. That's perfect. LOL!!!

    I think I stayed up too late tonight--the TV is telling me to buy something called "bare minerals" (it will change the way you think of makeup, it's so light you'll want to sleep in it, it's perfect for EVERYONE). I'm so tired, their brainwashing approach almost worked. =) Good night!

  2. Gorgeous, as always! I love the dress and the makeup. And yes, the black hair as well!

    Please do share the details of the designer, I don't have a mananahi for my entourage dresses yet.

  3. Not this year but 2 years ago I went to ELEVEN baby showers in one 14 month period. My husband and I have been married for almost 2 years and the questions are happening more often and are louder "When are you going to have kids!?" I keep saying in 2 years...but I said that 2 years ago!

  5. @ Ric: Haha, we had rabbits a few years back & I'm surprised how many times they give birth in a year. Then I realized. =P Have a great day! Get some rest! =)

    @ Dea: Thank you, Dea dear! =) His name is Billy, I'll email you his contact details. He is a very humble gay mananahi from the province and he charges super mura. That dress is only Php 1,200, and for the fabric used and how fast he completed it, it's really sulit na. =)

    @ Jessica: 11 showers in 14 months? wow! You must be an expert in buying baby gifts then. =) And 2 years of marriage with no kids yet is not bad, you take your time and have one when you & hubby are ready. Never mind the prying questions. =P

    @ AMW: Thank you Nikki, ikaw talaga number one pampalakas ng loob. =) Love you lalu! Hihi. And to be the one beautifying the bride is an awesome job!!! And yes, baby soon! I'll pray for that blessing to come your way asap. =) You & Keith will be great parents I'm sure! =)
