Suppliers Review: Anna's Chocolate Fountain

Rating: óóóóó (5 stars)
Peso Power: 1,500 good for 50 pax

**Contact info below***

Mark and I was supposed to have our DIY candy buffet at the reception, but since Great Eastern Hotel is so fond of the corkage fees, we had to let it go and decided to stick with our edible wedding favors (Oatmeal Cookies).

Due to my "wants" of having sweet desserts on our wedding day, I never stopped myself looking for a supplier that offers affordable dessert but do not forgo quality. Something that is worth paying for.

I learned about Ms. Anna’s Chocolate fountain thru; but was kind of hesitant to book her at the first time. I am really not a big fan of online ads – but thankfully, she was able to deliver everything more than what we have expected. They were very punctual, and would always keep you updated, and would not force you to book them or pay the deposit fee right away even if you have only pencil booked them.

 I can still remember when I got really tempted about her affordable rates; I immediately sent her an email asking if we can book her for our wedding. If I can still remember, that was mid-February. I promised to pay the deposit fee a week after we have communicated, but due to other commitments, I wasn’t able to pay it. I was already thinking that she has already canceled our reservation, but come May, she asked me again if we are still interested to get her services; and so we did.

I am glad that we booked them; and since the reception program started a bit late, SOBRANG mabenta ito during our wedding day. Haha! Alas, we weren’t able to see the attendant and try the chocolate fountain. Chocolate fountain has been a part of my frustration most especially that I am really into chocolates. There’s something about chocolate fountain that really makes me giddy. Sayang talaga! We may not have booked the grandest package that Ms. Anna is offering, but then she really offered a very great service! If ever we would have another event, I’d surely book her and taste the chocolate fountain na! (not the fountain ha) J

Suppliers Review: Norly Dizon (Emcee)

Emcee: Norly Dizon - óóóó (4.99 stars)
Peso Power: 8,000

Norly is such a good host and gee, he sings very well. He was able to manage our program very well even if started a bit late due to Makati day. Just imagine, he crunched the entire program for 2 HOURS! The only reason he is lacking 0.1 star was because during the start of the program, he incorrectly said my name. LOL – which was actually just fine for me, but since this is our wedding, my mom had freaked out and immediately corrected him. Besides, most of the people who barely know me would call me Kristina, instead of Katrina.    

He also gave us a free receptionist for booking him early and I can say that Ms. Lala was very helpful too. I believe she was the one who took charge of the music queue, registration and signing of the guestbook. They were both punctual and were already at the venue at exactly 4PM, even if the start of the program is not until 6PM.

What I also love about Norly’s services is that you can easily get in touch with him, not just via email but you can call or text him anytime.

Oh before I forget, he was able to convince hubby to do this garter dance which I didn’t know that Mark would be able to do so. LOL.

Suppliers Review: Ysabela Florist (Entourage Flowers)

Rating: óóóóó (5 stars)
Rates undisclosed

One of the photographers thought this was my wedding bouquet
so they took a picture of it beside my Bride sign. Pretty, eh? :)
I consider Ysabela Florist as one of the most considerate suppliers we have booked for our wedding. They have revised our contract a couple of times, not because of me, acting as the fickle-minded bride, but rather the cost effective bride. :D When we first talked to them, Mark and I said that we are going to get the services for the church set up; then changed to reception set up. But due to the fact that our wedding expenses became more costly than what we have expected, Mark and I decided to book them as our supplier for wedding entourage flowers. After all, our package with Don Bosco and Great Eastern Hotel already includes the floral decoration.

I love the way how they made the entourage flowers, even my throw bouquet, where most of the people who went to my room before the wedding day, thought that my throw bouquet is my actual wedding bouquet. Even my mom, who isn’t a big fan of wedding bouquets, was really impressed with it, and she even wanted to hold it during the procession. The wristers they made for our female entourage were also beautiful. Though the colors they used didn’t match our wedding motif, it still looks really okay. Besides, I didn’t coordinate with them that much in terms of the colors and type of flowers they are going to use. I wasn’t really that particular with the colors, most especially that I do not have enough knowledge with the types of flowers. :D 

Wednesday, November 23, 2016 Video Reviews

I posted some dresses from a online seller - Dressesofgirl last month. Many girls ask me whether this online seller is reliable. Sure it is. I have found some Video Review for this website, and would be love to share their honest reviews with you. It is not just my opinion now. The beads can shining brightly in the sunshine or the lights. And the lines and the size are perfect, too. I fell in love with dresses at my first sight. Hope you girls would love it, too. 

Celebrity Inspired Long Prom Dress Looks- Whimsical Prom Fashion Trends

Have you ever watched what the celebrities wearing in the music festival? I really love the fashion trends sported by the celebrities when I try to find how to be desired-party chic in a long dress at my prom.

Flower crown is the fashion icon for the music festival. This flower crown look with a long prom dress would an absolute to-die-for look for any outdoor prom. It can match well with loose curls and romantic braid, or formal up-dos. I have seen many celebrities: Vanessa Hudgens (one of my favorites), Emmy Rossum, and Bella Thorne in these flirty look. I would be happy to turn all their red carpet styles to my own prom style.

Vanessa Hudgens is wearing dangle earrings. Most teen girls like my friends will choose a chandelier earring or a simplistic stud for prom. They will choose different styles according to the different prom dresses they are wearing. I have found a handmade bohemian chic earring for my whole look and try to stand out among the large array of the sparkly silver chandelier-clad lobes.


As I mentioned in the beginning, I plan to showcase my own style. Then, I found a fantastic fringe. These small accessories are totaling hot for this spring. I have added some fun fringe accents on my long prom dress to complete the whole prom look as its grungy hippie roots. It can still look good to dress formal with some hippie elements for my prom.

Aside from the nail art, I prepared a sparkly ring that could shine brightly under the lights. Many girls know to buy beautiful earrings, wrist cuffs, or statement necklaces. But few of them would choose rings the main jewelry accent for their prom. This idea is totally doable. I wear two statement rings and midi rings in colors that compliment my prom dress.

Do the trick with sandals. It is so nontraditional to wear sandals rather than heels as the girls may feel awkward when choosing a flat shoe. But not everyone could walk elegant in a sexy pair of high heels. So embrace the amazing and comfort sandals.

That would be all the tricks to help the teen girls to win the prom queen. Don’t forget to wear a dramatic lip. Go the boldest of the bold. Go big with a deep plum. Go daring with va-va-voom red, and even pastel orange!

Prom Tutorial: Hair, Makeup, and Dress! // Kat Winslow

Teen Bloggers go bold yet vintage in a Long Prom Dress from Dressfashion

Hello everyone, I am Hannah, a teen blogger searching for my perfect prom dress now. Only the one who is going to wear a prom dress knows what’s in style and which prom dress would be trendy in 2017. I am a teen fashion writer, and I have been blogging for 5 years since I am still a little girl. This dress reseller Dressfashion reaches out me to ask whether I could share some experience about what’s trending now this year.

Now the prom season is not officially begun. But many of my friends have been looking for one thing already: long dresses – lot of gorgeous long prom dresses. I am shocked by all these stunning tulle prom dresses online. Many girls prefer classic & elegant style prom dresses, so this year, I am seeing elegance would be one of the prom dress trends. Long prom dresses with more structure and cutouts are much preferred by girls in my age. And the bright colors, romantic lace, and chic embellishments are so much loved by my classmates.
From my sharing and loving from my Facebook, Pinterest and, I see a return of more sophisticated prom looks. I am checking everything’s going on Instagram and Twitter. Some of the teen celebrity dresses are influencing our teen girl’s choices of prom dress and makeup. But sometimes, they look too hot for young girls. Some teens are extremely aware of styles and fashion, and pay more attention to, watch other people’s looks and turn them into their own styles. In fact, in my first prom, I chose a classic look and showcased a more feminine look. This year, I tried to find a vintage long prom dress inspired from the 1930s in a second-hand dress store. When I saw this dress at the first sight, I fell in love. It has a shining hand-beaded bead and the light pink color look like the first love bubbles. This vintage long prom dress will never be out of fashion.
I don’t want to choose a mini body-con prom dresses that are super tight and short. Prom is one of the most big, special and formal night for me. I would be love to choose a dress that can be remembered in the rest of my life. When I see girls wearing mini dress, I believe they are too informal for the special night, though they also tried to look good for that.

Colorful Weekend

Hello, Darlings!

It’s already November now, and the holidays are coming. I am so excited that these holidays bring some of the best sales of the year. During the great sale, I have bought a Kindle to keep a good reading hobbit. And I absolutely love it. Anyone who would be love to recommend some books are much welcomed.
Have you ever noticed that the sale season has come earlier this year? When shop early, there are more styles and size to choose from. But if I wait to shop later, I can always get a better price if there is still the perfect size. When I choose a dark color dress, my husband always prefer to see me wearing pink. Last Saturday, I purchased two jackets at reasonable prices for the upcoming winter. The easy method way to match my jacket is a pink floral dress. Pink or blush is also my favorite color. This color suits me well, and easier to match other items in my wardrobe.

Time for Blings - Prepare for the New Year Eve

When I was a little girl, I so look forward to the Christmas holidays and New Year Eva. It has about a month’s holiday waiting for me. The 4-week holidays seem to be the most cheerful time in the whole year. 

The precious time at the end of the year always passes so quickly. I like the holiday because of that kind of feeling to be thankful and relaxed. And mostly, I love to watch most of the girls will dress up with big smiles for the New Year Eve.

Suppliers Review: Picsteria (Photobooth)

Photobooth: Picsteria óóóóó (5 stars)
Rates: 4,900 (3 hours unlimited printing, customized backdrop, free props and 1 attendant)

Mabentang mabenta ito sa guests namin & they really enjoyed posing in the booth!

Hubby and I found out about Picsteria during the Theme’s & Motif bridal fair but didn’t get the chance to book them on the spot. Few months after the said fair, I contacted them again, and ask if we can still book them with the rates they have offered us during the event. The owner was kind enough to accommodate us, and gave us the same price they offered on the fair.

To be honest, I had a hard time trying to get in touch with the owner because he seldom replies via email. I had to text him first and let him know that I sent him an e-mail just so he can send the information that I am asking from him. (like the updated contract and the layout of the backdrop).

Even if their rates are really reasonable as compared to other photobooths in the market, the prints are long-lasting and it doesn’t fade just like the others. The sample that we got from them during the fair still looks the same. Colorful padin =)

Too bad hubby and I weren't able to enjoy it as much as our guests did. We were too busy, and we only had 1 keepsake from them. ♥ I also wanted to have as much pictures with my friends during our wedding, but since we had to attend to our guests, I never had the chance to take pictures with them on the booth. :D

Goodbye 2015, Hello 2016!

My new year comes with happiness. On the first day of the New Year 2016, I come to witness the marriage of my friend Olivia.

Ten years ago, Olivia totally hated marriage, just like Max in Two Broke Girls. She might never imagine that she would marry someone then. But Frankie showed up and changed her. I am so glad that Olivia can marry to a man who loves her, heart and soul. Olivia smiles all the time on her wedding day.

And here are some wedding dresses UK we choose before her wedding:

These are totally different ones:
1.    The first one is strapless and mermaid. Olivia has an attractive figure and she should obviously put mermaid dresses in the first place. Only the mermaid silhouette can show up her sexy curves. And this one will not be too tight to make her feel uncomfortable. Besides, the exquisite lace applique really appeals to Olivia’s taste. The dress shows the wear’s elegance with a slight touch of royalty. So it takes some time for us to decide which one to choose.

2.    The second one is the ball gown without sleeves. Lace on the shoulders make the dress kind of vintage. And the designer chooses the ball gown silhouette to suit the retro shoulder details. And if you think it's an elegant style dress, you are wrong. The back part is partially transparent decorated with floral applique. The belt round the waist “reshapes” the body. So this one is really elegant front, and sexy back.

3.    The greatest characteristic of the third bridal gown is the ruffles below the waist. The silhouette is princess style. But the ruffle flowers make the dress like the ball gown. And I thought it was taken from the fashion show when I and Olivia first saw the dress. There are so many layers at the lower part. And the back is lace-up. Lace-up is always my favourite back detail.

4.    To me, the last one is the most fashionable one. The hemline is court train. All the layers are made of different fabrics including lace, tulle and fur. And the floral appliques are really amazing. Olivia and I love this dress even more after clicking the dress and seeing the pictures of the lace flower. Around the waist, there is a ribbon. But the only thing is that the colour is Ivory while Olivia needs white.

Although all these dresses are amazing, we still have to choose one. So here I have a question for you. Do you know which one Olivia chose? The first, the second the third or the last one.

And goodbye chics. Happy New Year!

I believe in pink

Everything is good in the holiday except the bad weather. It’s raining SATURDAY, SUNDAY, MONDAY, TUESDAY… It’s only a couple days away from Christmas, and then New Year 2016? What did you receive for Christmas gifts? I am definitely looking forward to my 4th Christmas after my marriage. We are so busy these days, mostly with shopping, dinner, and whatever you can think for enjoying the holiday. It’s been such a busy holiday season, and at the same time, we are so thankful for this holiday full of feelings of joy, love, and peace. I have been lagging on my emails and other social media update. Maybe I can get back into my regular routine after Christmas!

I have received a formal dress as a gift from one of my friends. That is surprising as I used to get presents like flowers or cosmetics. My friend has changed her job to MillyBridal,a wedding dress design company located in UK. They really have some masterpieces that I would be love to show you. The color I am in love with is the wedding dresses UK collection in pink rather than the traditional white. The other day I went to do my nails.  I have chatted a lot with the two ladies sat near me, one a young girl in her early 20s, the other one a very old lady. At the end, we found out all of us chose pink colors for our nails! My point is, we love pink, no matter what age we are!

Dinner Time

The gardens south of the Yangtze River are the best under Heaven, and among them the gardens of Suzhou are the Best. These gardens are famous for their tranquil and serene environment, refined layout and exquisite Building skills. Lately I’ve been starting to feel as if I’m growing tired of Suzhou gardens. It feels as if we’ve been everywhere before and tried everything before. When friends come to visit, I find myself suggesting the same restaurants we’ve eaten at a million times. In the areas which I’ve been visited many times last year, the humble administrator's Garden and the Lingering Garden my favorites. But I have started to feel tired and stagnant. I visit them and feel the familiarity of every garden, nothing or nowhere new.
Of course this isn’t really the case. I know that. One thing Suzhou could never be described as is stagnant – it is constantly changing and evolving, and new places, spots and eateries are always arriving. Chengpin bookstore has an opening ceremony last week. Walking down the shopping mall full of cute cafe’s and pubs with customers spilling out onto the streets, I started to feel that giddy excitement that comes with visiting somewhere new that you just know you’re going to love.

So I guess it’s not Suzhou to blame for being tired but us. This year, we’ve got busy. REAL busy. Time is precious, and any of it that is going spare comes with the added pressure of needing to be spent wisely and not wasted. We no longer seem to have the hours free to seek out the new or the exciting or the blink and you’ll miss it, and even when we do, we don’t seem to have the energy to enjoy them. Instead of being at the front of the pack – trying out the new places before anyone else has and passing on the recommendations to others – we’re at the back – taking those recommendations to make sure when, on the rare occasion, we do eat out we’re heading somewhere that’s worth our time and our spend. Life seems to have got in the way, and Suzhou has become just a place to live rather than a place to explore.

How Could There be Such Amazing Wedding Dresses in this World?

This wedding dress is really really beautiful beyond words. How can I use those plain words to describe it? Beautiful? Exquisite? Sexy? No, it is more than that. It is the unit of all the amazing words in the world.
I am always fond of lace-up back details. Such back makes a simple style dress complicated and exquisite, suitable for any important events. The corset-like upper part reshapes the wearer’s body and shows the feminine curves, slimming the waist and exaggerating the bust and hips. The lace-up back also shows the wearer’s flawless skin. This dress could be made into strapless. However, with the spaghetti straps, that gown looks even more elegant and splendid.
How much I would like to just put the picture in this post. Then no excess words can hide the beauty of this wedding dress. And you, the best and prettiest people, can spend the time that you planned to read the post on enjoying every part of the dress. You might think I am crazy. Yes, this luxurious gown drives me crazy. I am in love with it.
The dress looks like the most beautiful garden. Blowing flowers are growing in full glorious bloom at the upside while other flowers flourish down. These appliques embellished at the gown are finely manufactured and look like real flowers. The tulle also makes the whole dress like a picture. The tulle is the river. Flowers float in the river and flows slowly with the water. This wedding dress is so so amazing.
There are many beautiful flowers on the gowns. Different from the former one, all the embellishments on this dress are white. The floral appliques are all over the gown including the waist. And the part I like the most is the neckline. The flowers at the top of the dress make the strapless neckline superior to all other strapless ones. I also need to point out that the dress has a train who may just be suitable for the first wedding.
A simple style wedding dress may appeal to most people. The covering on the dress is airy enough to emphasize the wearer’s beauty. This dress may suit for a beach wedding. The sea wind blows, and the gown flies with the wind.
This one may have occurred in your dream. Soft fabric, pure white color and pretty hair style.Now enjoy these amazing dresses by yourself.

A Glimpse of the Desirable Wedding Dresses

Hello, chics! Here I come back again to talk with you about some charming wedding dresses.
You might know I am a wedding dress addict. I love all kinds of beautiful wedding gowns even though I have been married. I enjoy searching for beautiful wedding gowns at free time. Sometimes I wish I were still a young girl so that I could wear a new wedding dress. Now wedding dresses are becoming more and more beautiful. The wedding dress designers add some really attractive elements to the dress to make the wedding gowns unique and shining. I can’t stop my wow when seeing these dresses.
Lace, the forever in fabric for wedding dresses, is the most important icon in a wedding. We do not know why such a little piece of clothing can have the magic to make one common dress dreamlike. Lace appliques blossom like flowers around the brides or the brides-to-be. Lace flows when the wearer moves or the breeze comes. What a beautiful scene! So how ladies resist the temptation of lace and lace wedding dresses?

Sweetheart neckline perfectly shows the sexy body line of the brides. With the ribbon around the waist, you absolutely show the best look that day. Such a dress which reshapes the figure in a perfect way is even better than a one-month weight reduction program.

Ha-ha. I suddenly find that all the wedding dresses I show you here have a train. A wedding dress with a train looks classic and kind of vintage. No matter the sweep, the chapel or the Cathedral, the train satisfies your needs to be a princess in your wedding. Imagine that you walk slowly to your man with all the guests’ eyes on you. Your wedding dress touches the ground softly. Isn’t it amazing?
However, the train is not suitable for all brides. Brides cannot wear wedding dresses with a train for a vow renewal or a second wedding. But do not worry dear. Here is another amazing choice from Millybridal!
Tea length shows vaguely your thin legs. Unique neckline shows your sexy collar stone but suggests your elegance. Ribbons around the waist perfectly embellish the wedding dress.

These are all my favourite wedding dresses I have found these days. If you have your opinion, please do not hesitate to tell me. I am more than happy to know more charming wedding dresses UK style.
