Be inspired by this Filipiniana-themed celebrity wedding of Paula Peralejo and Charlie Fernandez In the Philippines, being a public figure, much more for a celebrity, people will expect a big wedding party with hundreds of guests and millions spent for a big day. But in this wedding, I truly admired how the couple, led by the bride, wanted their wedding to be intimate and private. The way they planned their wedding was very inspiring and if you have read the bride’s blog, you will get a lot of tips on making one’s wedding very special and personalized without breaking your bank account.
Here are some of the interesting details about this wedding
1. The couple wanted their wedding to be Eco-friendly and no real flowers. They wanted a “no waste policy” as much as possible
2. Cost-effective wedding. They got full support from their families and friends and they spent on suppliers who, according to bride, “supported their requirements”
3. Plant as souvenirs that the groom’s mom planted herself (basil, ashitava, and cilantro)
4. Some of the materials that they used for their DIYs were made from existing materials that they already have at home such as jute sacks the groom got from his soy business, the groom’s mom’s hurricane lamps, and scrap fabrics from the bride’s friend’s clothing factory
5. Centerpiece. Hurricane lamps placed on palayok filled with coffee beans. The coffee beans were then placed inside the jute sacks with buttons so they can bring it home and use as fertilizer for the plant souvenirs.
6. Paperless invitation
7. Filipiniana cocktails – (Taho Bar, sorbetes, kesong puti, pandesal, bibingka, puto bumbong)
8. Lechon Cake!
9. Lovely paper roses bouquets
10. Photobooth with Filipiniana props. No name of the couple and no date of their wedding
10. Invitation cover – Philippine history with 6th year about the couple’s wedding
