Forevermore: The Wedding Diary Edition (part 6)
Our CENOMAR’s are due to be released tomorrow morning. After this one, the next document we will be preparing for would be the marriage license itself.
Just in case you still don’t know yet, you need to secure and NSO-authenticated birth certificate and a Certificate of No Record of Marriage (CeNoMar) in order for you to secure the marriage license. In some cities and municipalities, they require the couples to go through a half-day seminar that serves as a parental advice/parental counseling which is required in the family code for the securing of the marriage license. This must be done in the municipal hall of the venue of your wedding.
Also guys, me and best man Crisant has found a nice, affordable, but classy hotel for the overnight stay on the eve of the big W.
Lourdes Suites along the corners of Kalayaan Avenue and Makati Avenue has, so far the most affordable rates as far as overnight stays are concerned. They’re at least a thousand bucks to two thousand bucks cheaper than the hotels within our area. When Cess found out that we’ve placed our reservations there, she wasn’t sure if she would be happy for me finding that place, or be envious at us because the hotel she’s supposed to go to is a teeny bit more expensive. Well, I promised her that I’ll take care of her and her mom’s stay there, just in case.
I already talked to one of my former high school students, Obed Cutaran, and he has agreed to be our official photographer. He’s got a good eye for taking shots, especially if you equip him with a Canon EOS 5D Mark II, that we were able to borrow from our senior pastor courtesy of his son, Benny Fog, who happens to be one of the secondary sponsors as well. Hopefully, as soon as Cess’ schedule lighten up a bit next week, we can have the pre-nup photos shot.
We also got to talk to a good friend whose dad specializes in wedding attires for men and women. By weekend, she will be taking our vital stats for our barongs, and Cess and her bridesmaids’ measurements for their gowns.
Countdown is now down to 40 days!
