Still dreaming of wearing an ecru wedding gown


Hubby and I were married in a civil ceremony 19 years ago. It was a very simple wedding officiated by a trial court judge in our city. We have our family members as our witness. We had a simple lunch at a restaurant right after the wedding. And the rest so they say is history.

Nineteen years have passed and there are times I still dream of getting married in church while wearing an ecru gown or a dress all brides would want to wear on their wedding day. Maybe hubby would want to surprise me on our 25th wedding anniversary six years from now.

In other wedding-related matter, June is a popular month to tie the knot in the Philippines and wedding stores are making a killing selling wedding gowns and wedding favors. For those in a tight budget, Divisoria is a mecca for premade wedding gowns to personalized wedding favors. If you’re from the US, you can checkout this website for Favor Warehouse has inexpensive favors to choose from. If you need anything like photo frame, tins, key chains and other items, they have everything you need.

A wedding doesn’t have to be expensive; a would-be couple would get a lot from their budget if they know where to shop for all their wedding needs.
