We met in college, 6 1/2 years later, we sealed our fate with a marriage that was founded on love, but with no warning whatsoever that love comes with trials too.
We didn’t have any fancy proposals, pre-nuptial photo shoots, showers, etc.
He proposed while we were in a borrowed car, around 5 pm and stuck in traffic.
E———- Kailan tayo magpapakasal?
Ganun lang, walang warning signs, walang luluhod-luhod pa, walang mga balloons na lumilipad, walang eroplano na may hila-hilang streamer na Annie will you marry me? We both didn’t have money kaya wala ring engagement ring. Kahit pinilipit na sinulid, wala.
Our wedding came out nice rin and grand based on those days’ standards.
We booked the church, chose the flowers, dresses, picked the hotel and food, video, photo, rented a wedding car, and that’s it. Hindi pa uso yung mga wedding planners nung araw.
Buti na lang, kung hindi, yung budget, nabawasan pa.
Hindi pa uso yung tatlong dosena ang ninong at ninang. Kuya Lito told me beforehand na hindi maganda yung maraming mga sponsors, para daw negosyo. Dapat two pairs nga lang, nadagdagan pa ng isang pair. Note: walang senador, gobernador, or presidente ng malaking kumpanya. Mga friends sila at si Ninang Nita ay ninang ko sa binyag.
We chose San Agustin Church in Intramuros. Tila narinig lang namin na maganda yung church, although we’ve never been there. Walang wedding rehearsals nung araw. Tingnan mo oh, meron pang magtitinda ng swipistik na nag-uusyoso. Tra-ex pa sa picture.
I looked constipated. Ang payat ko, para akong nagsa-shabu. Eh kasi naman I replaced pa the curtains in our room. Bumili pa ako ng tela at ako pa ang nagtahi. Nagkapuyat-puyat ako kaya from 100 pounds, I was down to 95 pounds on my wedding day. Buti na lang walang hangin kundi dalawa kami ni Edmund liliparin.
