Talking about weddings! Of course you will not skip asking your own parents how their wedding was, right? But lucky are some who could see exactly how it looks like, so I must say, lucky me! :D
I was de-cluttering when I saw my parent's wedding album so I took fokasie (my camera) to take some peek of their BIG day for me to share..I just found it interesting since traditional wedding is started to fade nowadays.
Using the photos let's see how it goes.
|It's the Album cover. Old it is! What I love here is my Mom and Dad's name; perfectly matched.|
|Inside the album they have the invitation attached|
|I love it!|
|They kept the wedding greeting cards/tags from their wedding gifts too in thealbum.They occupied like 4 leaves of it.|
|Glad to know they have prep pictures but they only focused on the bride's.|
|That's my Mom's HMUA :D|
|And there's GrandMa...|
|Mom with Lolo|
The car they've used was borrowed from Daddy's cousin (Tita Medy).
|Groom and Company's march.|
|Bride's turn. Finally Mom you smiled! LOL|
|why are they going up?|
|Dad putting on my Mom's ring.|
|Wait! what's those scars on Dad's hand all about?|
|and there's Mom saying her piece.|
|To light their path.|
|To clothe them as one.|
|To bind them together.|
|I took this photo for a closer view of their cord that we'll be using too. Nice! :D|
|Their wedding cake.|
|It's not complete without doves. :D|
|Dad brought Mom to their house and ate something sticky before entering (a tradition).|
They said a newly wed should eat something sticky on their Big Day to make them stick together as one. That's why in traditional wedding they have lots of sticky foodie being prepared like "suman" (rice cake) and "kalamay". They normally sell it to the guests and the proceeds will be a help to the couple to start their own family.The selling part of the tradition is called Sabangan normally taken place in the middle of the program during reception. Mom and Dad have it too and the "money dance" tradition a day before the wedding. You can still encounter these kinds of tradition in Mindoro and Batangas.
My parents spent more or less than P25,000.00.

|A successful marriage is not measured on how simple or luxurious your wedding was, it's on how you keep on falling in love in the same person all over again no matter how faded your wedding pictures are.|
