Ethereally Rusticated Editorial

July 1, 2016

As the old adage says, “Many are called, but only few are chosen”. The much awaited collaboration of the most sought-after and trusted wedding suppliers in the metro today, is finally here and unfolding in right before our eyes. Together with Merry To Marry, we present to you an interesting editorial shoot that was masterfully created by the best suppliers to pique your minds and captivate your hearts.

Set in the mystifying backdrop of The Forest Barn is where this magic happened. Von Lazaro presents to us his breathtaking creations in this rustic-themed shoot ethereally styled by Moki Gray. Toni Aviles also stepped up to the plate and glamorized our models, Gabrielle Lagrimas and Moksha Alfonso. Also special thanks to Greg’s Fruitcakery Co. Ltd. for the cake that completed the whole look of the shoot. Lastly, this collaboration wouldn’t be possible without the careful coordination by The Weddings by Miss P.

This ethereally rusticated session will definitely leave you breathless as three wedding photographers showcased their mad talents just to give you this unique experience — three different styles, one overarching theme.

First, The Perfect Grey has taken advantage of the natural light to come up with these divine-looking outtakes. While rummaging through these, it looks like you are looking at the goddesses of the forest.

Daniel Talavera, meanwhile, gives us great portraits that help us see the intricate details of the wedding dress. We also get to see how accents and accessories, however small that may be, can make this shoot a success.

5 Wedding Planning Hacks

June 24, 2016

It has already been written and said for several times that planning a wedding is crucial and vital. Effort, hard work, and time should, thus, all be poured out. Most of the time, however, frustrations and uncertainties come along with that may slow and impede the process. Hence, to help you keep yourselves from, or at least lessen, the bad vibes during the wedding journey, here are some wedding planning hacks to think of.

Merry To Marry’s founder and editor-in-chief and now the lass behind The Weddings by Miss P as a full-pledged wedding coordinator, Princess Ramos, shares with us these 5 Wedding Planning Hacks to help you have a smoother sailing wedding journey.

1. Don’t imitate celebrity weddings

It is so easy, nowadays, to be enthralled and bewitched by the larger-than-life or fairytale-like weddings of the celebrities, but it doesn’t mean that your wedding should exactly be like those. These celebrity weddings, although grand and elegant, are perhaps expensive as they hired the best and top-of-the-line wedding suppliers.

There is no harm in trying, hence you should call every wedding supplier that interests you, including the best ones, and if their rate is not within your budget, then don’t fret and just move on to another supplier until you find the ones that match both of your tastes and coffers. There are budding wedding suppliers who may meet or even exceed your expectations without hurting your pockets. Always check yourself and your bank account.

2. Ask advice from family and friends

A little help from family and friends will always do. Their helping hands, however small those may be, can keep you from having a wedding disaster. Again, there is no harm in asking them. Ask your family and friends and accept their opinions and suggestions with open arms. It may also help you big time if you are going to seek advice from someone who got married. This will help you save more time and filter your options faster.

3. Visit online bridal fairs

The reason why there are bridal fairs is to instantly bring the wedding suppliers to you. While traditional bridal fairs can be somewhat taxing and trite, online bridal fairs are in to serve you at its best. These sites,  in particular, can do wonders as much as traditional bridal fairs can. You may find the best suppliers at reasonable costs and sometimes, with promo discounts, on this site and you may book them in just one click away.

4. Find inspirations for your own wedding

Just choosing a theme and color motif for your own wedding might already be exhausting, but that’s what wedding blogs can help you with. Wedding blogs, especially Merry to Marry, feature different weddings and engagement stories that may inspire you to have your dream wedding come into a reality. You may get one or more things just by visiting these sites, and even more so, you might find the wedding dream team of yours on these blogs.

5. Don’t forget the main reason you are getting married

Yes, you want a perfect wedding with the perfect theme, perfect suppliers, perfect wedding gown, and the likes, but never forget that this wedding is all about you and your partner. You’re not getting married for anyone else, for social media posting, or for blog feature purposes only. You are getting married because you want to spend the rest of your lives together. Thus, during the process of planning your wedding, ask each other’s thoughts on everything, and then have a consensual decision. Wedding is the first journey to marriage, thus teamwork is a must have. Try to give a little to get a little.
