Absence makes the heart grow fonder

Absence. Literally. I have work today but I didnt come in..Sakit sa loob eh, I'm really "excited" about my resignation, I'm just rendering services for a month.. The beauty in that is, absence makes my heart grow fonder of Google, and all ideas and images it leads me to..

Budget has been the main consideration for all supplies and suppliers that we'd get for our wedding and second to that, I'd exhaust all my creative juices to make it as unique as possible. Some wedding rituals and traditions are must haves for me, some are so-so while some are so blah so I'd really want to replace them or bear with them if I don't have a choice. In the span of my absence from work today, here are items pictures that I came across in my whole day of surfing and playing wedding street. Hehe.. Let's start with...

1) Flowers- Our colors are aqua blue and choco brown but there are very very few options for those colors. Hence, I've been thinking hard what colors we'll use for our flowers and I think apple green is the best color..Surprisingly, there are many options for flowers. I originally wanted a purely Swarovski bouquet but I think I'll get a few flowers to make it balanced.

 2) Fingerprint guestbook- I am a reader of sweetsimplejoys.com and though I must have read posts there a thousand times, I still check it from time to time to see inspirations that I might have missed and sure enough, I came across her post on fingerprint guestbooks- literally putting your fingerprint on a medium to serve as the couple's guestbook.. How cute! I guess virtually none or very very few Pinoys have done this cause when I looked for pictures, no local ones cropped up.

If we'll push through with this, we might make a scrapbook type with a page for each group of people such as: my family, his family, friends, etc.

3. Wedding ring box- Out of all wedding chuva, I really, really hate the typical wedding pillow. White and fluffy and lacy, it's just way too tacky for me. Whoever came up with that idea should be questioned for a very long time as to why they did suggest that. Haha, bitchy! Anyway, many brides have come up with alternatives but still boils down to the idea that it's a pillow which I still don't understand given that rings are jewelry and must be kept in a box, or something where they are well hidden and protected. I originally wanted to buy "treasure boxes" but the owner of sweetsimplejoys.com already did that and I wasnt so excited anymore because the boxes that I was about to buy were exactly the same so I constantly looked for something else. 
Luckily, when we went to Megamall for our first and last bridal fair, I saw these cutie boxes at 35 each which will perfectly hold our rings and arrhae. I am nervous yet excited that when I google this key word, no matter what play on words I do, nothing close comes to what I have in mind so it's a big risk- people will surely notice it either because it's so nice and fresh and awesome or because it was flat out stupid.hehe. here goes the closest one I can find...

Our boxes already have imprinted designs so it'll be a bit tacky if I still make our initials similar to this effect but I'll see what personal touch I can include...

That's just about it.. I have more ideas but these are more random thoughts of a bride who didnt work today.haha
Till next time engaged people and those who just enjoy reading my random thoughts :)
