Fifty Rosaries With Love

The Holy Rosary is considered a perfect prayer because within it lies the awesome story of our salvation. By praying the Rosary, we meditate the mysteries of joy, of sorrow and the glory of Jesus and Mary. This is one of the main reasons why a rosary is a great gift to someone special to you, or to the people who witnessed your wedding. It is also considered as a great way of sharing your blessings to your love ones.

This may well be one of the reasons why Ms. Miles and her H2B chose the rosaries as (some of) their wedding favors for their wedding. They ordered 50 rosaries - all hand-made to match their wedding theme and created with love.

July Inspiration Board: Old Hollywood

Old Hollywood is one of the most common wedding themes because it is glamorous, elegant and full of character. A couple with a red and black wedding motif can easily choose an Old Hollywood theme, which is usually accentuated with feathers and pearls. The wedding aesthetic is popularly based on Audrey Hepburn’s fashion trend in Breakfast at Tiffany’s film (1961).

Project Preview: A Wedding Cord inspired by…

I’ve been so busy designing, creating and researching about a couple of wedding accessory projects (yes, multi-tasking is what it is!) for a couple of months now, I barely have time doing what a normal wife would do (lolz, what? I meant cooking, FYI). Not that I am complaining, though. I’m thankful for all these blessings, a.k.a. all these fab brides and grooms who put their trust on me. HUGE HUGZ & BIG THANK YOU! You're all my inspiration. :)

I’m a pile of happiness today so I decided to give a preview of what I’m currently working on. I thought it’ll be fun (you think it’ll be fun, too, right?). Anyway, here’s a sneak peek of a wedding cord inspired by a head dress made of crystals and gold trinkets. When I saw the inspiration photo, I said to myself, it’s so divine. I’d like to think that I made the cord just as divine.

The rest of the photos will soon be posted on our project hubs so please do not fail to like us on Facebook or visit our Multiply site. That's all for now and happy preps!!! <3

Lino & Vhan’s Butterfly-themed Wedding Monogram

One of the popular ways of customizing a wedding is by using a monogram specially made for the couple. A wedding monogram is sort of the couple’s trademark of their own wedding and we’re no exemption. We designed our own wedding monogram, which we used on our invites (and other stationeries) and favors.

For Ms. Vhan, I created two monogram studies for their butterfly-themed wedding. The design is pretty simple and true to form, which were highlighted by their purple and pink wedding colors.

Wedding Traditions: The Veil, the Lighting of the Candles and the Cord

The veil, lighted candles and cord -- they are all traditional symbolisms in weddings and represent the couple’s readiness to become one with God and life. The Secondary Sponsors, typically close friends or relatives who were chosen by the couple, are the ones who will carry out the ceremony. There are three pairs of secondary sponsors (one for each symbol):

The Candle Sponsors is the pair who will light the candles on the altar.

The candles symbolize the Light of Christ, the same light they received at Baptism and now receive again to lead them in their new life as a couple. Some couples choose to have their mothers or fathers light the candles in this ritual, which usually takes place before the readings. The candles may also be lit at the beginning of the ceremony.
