I've been eyeing WINK since the first wedding fair we attended. Undecided at first met until we end up booking them at the Themes and Motifs Fair. Their invites are just so simple, adorable and affordable. We got a fair 20% discount and free envelope sealers. Total cost of our 80pcs invitations is P3,950.

Super big hugs to Ms. Cindy..very patient ang invite coordinator namin na ito na despite naexhaust namin ang 5 revisions and 2 mock-ups because we can't make up our minds on our invite layout but she's still on her full patience and kindness to accommodate our requests..thank you very much from the bottom of our hearts!

Zentaochi Bridal Shop

Venessa Ocampo, Owner/Designer
contact: +639333936600
email: venessa_ocampo@yahoo.com

When I met Ms. Ven of Zentaochi (who was surprisingly so young, jolly and accommodating), I never had second thoughts of booking her for my bridal gown and entourage apparel. She gave me a fair price of P10,000 for a decent vintage bridal gown and affordable rates for my ladies entourage (starting from P1,500 to P1,800) which I personally chose for our vintage wedding. Groom's 5-piece ensemble costs only P8,500.

Thrice din siguro ako nagpabago bago ng pegs ng gowns ko at mga pegs ng entourage dresses but Ms. Ven is simply the best na mag accommodate ng pabago bago kong isip:-) Thank you so much you made our wedding day extra special for all the pretty dresses you made!

Floral decorations for the ceremony is already included in the package we paid for at the church. It includes simple fresh flower arrangement and white aisle draperies (sample photo below).

Is the food great? is it spacious enough for dancing . Also thinking of getting services of peppermint for photos. I wonder if you would be kind enough to share your experiences good and bad to us and how would you rate them and email it to me at marj7230@yahoo.com. Thank you very much

Hi! Just read your post re HMUA. My friend is looking for HMUA based in Legaspi because her wedding will be in Misibis Bay. Can you help us with Nilo Lacsa Delgado’s contact number? Please? :) It would be of great help to us. I already sent a message thru facebook and maybe Nilo is so busy that he has no time in replying messages in FB. Hope to hear from you soon! :) Thank you in advance :)Joy
