WaW Dinner Part 2

In Blog, Featured by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Mimma Benz has always been generous to us WaWies. She will not hesitate to set aside a portion of her hectic schedule just to be with us, unless she has something important to attend to. You will really see her eyes sparkle with excitement whenever she’s with her WaWies and NaWies (Newlyweds at Work). Since we’re very spoiled, she’s giving us the opportunity to meet some of the wedding industry’s best suppliers. Kaya’t hindi ko na pinalampas itong second WaW Dinner, because I felt really sad when I wasn’t able to attend the first one. Anyway, just like the first WaW dinner, everyone brought their share of potluck food. We’ve had crispy pata, buttered chicken, barbecue, pancit malabon, shrimp, kakanin, ice cream, micro greens, and cake! Yum! The wedding supplier hosts this time were Phoeben and Gen Teocson (videographer). They were joined by fellow suppliers Paul Vincent and his wife Ayvih (photographer), and Queen David and husband David (coordinator). My fiancé and I have never met any of these suppliers before, but we were warmly welcomed like we’ve been friends with them for so long. Feeling close ako agad sa kanila. Haha! The house was homey and comfortable. We immediately …

WaW Supplier’s Potluck Lunch

In Blog, Featured, WaW Suppliers by Team WaWLeave a Comment

December is considered to be the busiest month for wedding suppliers. It is during this time when you will hear of back-to-back-to-back events being the norm for all professionals in this industry. However, before the December madness settled in this year, some of the industry’s suppliers met up at The Mango Farm and discussed the state of the Philippine wedding industry. They discussed how they could improve the services that they offered and how they could adapt to a fluid and competitive market. There are fresher takes on photographs and more personal ways coordinators make their presence known. It has come to a point where new services that haven’t been thought about before are now being offered. The ingenuity and the entrepreneurial spirit of the Filipinos in this industry is on full display each year and this year is no different at all. The potluck lunch-slash-forum was headed owner and founder of Weddings at Work, Benz Co-Rana and was hosted by Dylan Gozum from The Mango Farm. The goal of the meeting is to help each other stand out when it comes to servicing the brides and grooms of the future. Some of the key takeaways from the open forum …

WaW Dinner

In Blog, Featured by Team WaWLeave a Comment

Last November 25, we organized a dinner among some WaWies and some popular wedding suppliers. It was so fun that we decided to organize another WaWie Dinner tonight! Meanwhile, here’s Jezalin Panaligan to tell you the story of what happened during the first one.   What do you get when you bring together eight soon-to-weds, the woman behind W@W, and three of the most reputable suppliers in the wedding industry together in one dinner table? Six straight hours of spontaneous conversations, endless laughs and extremely valuable new learnings. I was one of the lucky few who got a seat at that table. I joined the WaWies Facebook group exactly one month after getting engaged. One of my best friends who got married invited me to be part of the group. The group is overflowing with helpful topics from brides-to-be and even those who already “graduated.” One lucky evening, Mimma Benz posted an invite for a casual dinner with Jason, Madge, and Veluz. Seeing the opportunity to get to know fellow WaWies and hearing tips from the suppliers themselves, I reserved a slot. We were told that it was going to be a casual dinner, we brought potluck desserts and snacks …

Harry Potter DIY Wedding

In Blog, Featured, W@W Weddings by Team WaWLeave a Comment

I’ve always wanted a Harry Potter wedding but I was always scared it would look like a birthday party so we initially had a “Starry, starry night” theme; the colors are: Silver, Gray, Navy Blue, Royal Blue and White. However, the Potterhead in me wouldn’t shut up so six months before the wedding, I told my then fiancé that I can make a “Harry Potter” theme work. So we kept the colors which is “luckily” the colors of Ravenclaw which has been my Hogwarts house forever. We wanted to stay on budget so I opted to do the Harry Potter elements wedding by myself. I love DIYs and I felt that I can do this. The invitations were designed by my good friend Arni Santiago and I was the one to print, cut and glue the pieces together. After a few days and a couple of glues emptied, our Marauder’s map invitations were done!  For the envelopes, I always wanted them wax sealed so we bought a wax seal kit from Lazada. I always wanted a unique ring holder and my then fiancé told me I could make a golden snitch and I am so glad I did! And what …

WaWParazzi: The Debut of Liza Soberano

In Blog, Featured by W@W Editor1 Comment

Editor’s note: Everyone’s ooh-ing and aah-ing at Liza Soberano’s beautiful boho-themed debut party .WaWParazzi Charisse Santillan Tinio of Nice Print, graciously shared with us how it all unfolded. Read more of Charisse’s WaWParazzi stories here in WaW in the coming months. Since last year, people knew that Liza Soberano didn’t want to have a debut party. She is simple and she didn’t want the limelight on her for her 18th bday. But around August 2015, I was blessed to have had the privilege to shoot the campaign ads for Mega tuna. During the shoot, my long time friend, Ogie Diaz (Liza’s manager), introduced me to Liza’s tita Joni. That day, she told me her wish to give the beautiful Liza a surprise debut. Not the traditional one, but one that liza would really love. So I asked her what are the “likes” of Liza which she enumerated — the outdoors, relaxed feel, the beach. Hence, the “Amazing Race” sports fest party came up and we thought of the bohemian/ glamorous camping type of dinner party for Liza. So for the next 3-4 months we met up with the whole team and with tita Joni to polish the ideas and plans …
