distracting myself

James left for Japan yesterday and I am still in my i-don't-want-to-sulk mode. I'm really, really trying hard not to think about it. I honestly thought this time it would be easier, well unfortunately it's not and most probably it will never be.

oh well. moving on. =) in the little over a month that he was here, we managed to move forward with our preparations. (special note to Isa: yes, it's another one of those " we booked them today" posts. hahaha. ) It was fun, crazy and tiring all at the same time.

Church: St. James the Great - downpayment done.
Church Flowers: c/o St. James' Mother Butler - fully paid.
Reception Venue: Greenhills Christian Fellowship - 50% downpayment done.
Caterer: Blue Petals - pencilbooked.
Wedding Coordinator: DNDC - downpayment done.
Photo and Video: Richard Buan and Jezreel Cruz - downpayment done.
Bridal and Entourage gowns: Regie Gaba - downpayment done. measurement taking in June.
Emcee: pencilbooked with Sweet Casuyon
Bridal Preps Venue: The Bellevue Manila - membership paid. rooms booked for two nights.
Music: Anima Choir - downpayment done.

still need the following:
Invites - still thinking kung DIY nalang
Bridal Car - waiting for the March bridal fair
Entourage Flowers - also waiting for the fair
Hair and Makeup Artist - will start trials soon
Documents - will start processing on June
Souvenirs - still searching
Rings - will wait for March
Arrhae - c/o James (we'll be using Japanese coins)
Shoes - will go to Solea or Abbylyn's to have one customized
Suit for James - he's looking for one in Japan. if all else fails, there's always Onesimus or Kingsmen of Exclusively His
Cake - waiting for bridal fair discounts
Honeymoon - trying to see if we can afford a HK trip. if not, there's always Bohol. =)

Loads more to do. James wont be coming back to Manila until October, so I'm doing most of the preps on my own and I am deathly afraid that I'll make the wrong choices. hahahaha. =)
