Actually, yung FEMALE ENTOURAGE ko talaga nag plano nito. Sila ang busy sa pag-iisip ng gimmick at mga props na gagamitin. Sila rin ang dumayo sa Divi para sa mga telang gagamitin. Ginamit lang na dahilan yung 'prenup' ko para maka pag long dress sila sa Bundok.. tsk. tsk. tsk..
Anyway, SUPER sulit naman ang paghahanda nila. at nag request pa ng part 2.
P.S. prenup ng Bride at Female entourage. Ang Groom kasi ang naging photographer :D
See prenup tab for the images.

After lunch, we straight toward to Beatriz Garden. And I literally fell-in-love with the place.

Since, wala talaga kaming budget.. one thing na makakatipid samin is to minimize Guest.
Things to Consider:
1. Venue at Zambales - with the whole family of Sugue-Rostrata... parang out of budget agad. Not to mentions the whole barangay hehe
Ceremony - San Agustin Church
Reception - Ti umoc Beach Resort 78k
Transpo & Accommodation for Jhe's Family and our friends - dito medyo mahal. 6 hrs drive from Manila, 4 hrs from Pampanga.
2. Venue at Subic/Olongapo - pwede. Actually may nakita akong offer from Maranatha Events na 85 k for LIGHT COMPLETE PACKAGE. I-upgrade na lang for buffet at photo albums = 100k
Ceremony - beach resort
Reception - beach resort
Transpo & Accommodation for Dian's & Jhe's Family and our friends - dito medyo mapapamahal. 4 hrs drive from Manila, 2 hrs from Pampanga, 2 hrs from Zambales
3. Venue at Bataan
Out of budget, kasi 1,200++ per head with minimum 100 pax
Ceremony - Bataan White Corals Beach Resort
Reception - Bataan White Corals Beach Resort
Transpo & Accommodation for Dian's & Jhe's Family and our friends - dito medyo mapapamahal. 2-3 hrs drive from Manila, less than 1 hrs from Pampanga, 4 hrs from Zambales
4. Venue at Tagaytay
Finally, malayo pero pwede na...
Ceremony - Chapel on the hill Batulao (reserved 6 June 12)
Reception - tagaytay
Transpo & Accommodation for Dian's & Jhe's Family and our friends -
dian's family stay @ Dasma
jhe's family can travel in the morning. Some with have accommodation.
Other guest can travel - 1.5-2 hrs from Manila. Entourage with accommodation.
Yesterday, 18-Mar-12, we have our first prenup session. In our relief, one of Jhe’s friend capture the moment while in the top of Rockies. This rockies is one of Mt. Maculot’s pride. You can view the mt. taal & its lake and have stunning background as an award.
I love my little blue dress that I’ve bought the day before the prenup. In addition, Jhe’s white “gusot-mayaman” long sleeve is perfect for the weather (summer). Jhe also bought the “props” we used- 2 meter lace as veil & flower hairdress that I put in my wrist.
It was a surprise that we wear our hiking shoes. Anyway, were mountaineers and proud to express it. Gladly, it adds unique detail to our photo session.
Thanks to Carlo Suarez for his patience and having a fun-filled photo session.
I'll post other photos upon availability :)
