3 days before the big day...

June 08, 2011

We woke up very early today. We're scheduled to have our precana seminar and canonical interviews today at St.Francis Xavier Parish in Nasugbu, Batangas at 7:30am. You may be wondering why we need to come all the to Nasugbu for both seminar and interview, see St. Francis governs our church, the Transfiguration Chapel in Batulao. It was a good thing that they do offer both precana and canonical for couples every Wednesday. We didn't have any other time to complete these 2 requirements aside from this week. Merely 3 days before the wedding day.

From our place to Nasugbu, it would take us about an hours and 30 minutes to get there. We left our place at around 6am. It was almost 8am when reached St. Francis church since it started raining really hard and there were road constructions going there. When we got to the church, we went straight to the office where we listed our names. Couple#10 it says. We then went to the waiting room and waited for our names to be called. It was an individual interview, it's usually the bride that go in first and then the groom follows. When it was my turn, I was just asked simple questions like date of the wedding, where is the church,  our job and where we worked. And then I vividly remember the priest thanking us for still deciding to receive the sacrament of marriage although we have been civilly married before. That's very special to me.

The precana seminar was administered by one of the church's nun. It was about marriage, sex and family. She explained the symbols of marriage like the ring, candles, veil and cord and what it signifies. She was also very opinionated on the subject of family planning and that every child is a blessing from God.

We left Nasugbu after 12nn but before we went home, I asked them if we can visit Caleruega first since it was within the route. It's been years since I last visited the church and that had been my first and last. When we got to Caleruega, the church was already being preparing for a wedding. Flowers are being adorned on the pews and on the altar. It's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time, only 3 more days and I will be here again to be wed. :) We stopped by Mile-Hi Diner before going home and that was when the heavy rain started pouring in. I thought about the wedding in Caleruega, I prayed and hope that the rain would stop for them. God have other plans anyway, the rain poured until the next day.

6 and 7 days before the big day...

woke up at 3:30am. Jet-lagged. Instead of forcing myself to catch forty winks, I decided to start our misalette. I've bought materials the day before. Good thing Topher installed MS Publisher on our laptop and our home printer is working fine. After a few revisions and font change, I feel happy with the final output. I've printed about 3 copies before heading down for breakfast.

We have a couple of things to do today. I've scheduled to meet with our reception emcee to discuss the program flow. We've decided to meet in Edsa Shang and with that I've decided to visit Greenhills too. See, I've never visited home without paying a visit to the shopping mecca of San Juan. Roshee and I will be meeting today too, she'll come with me on my meeting with Sweet.

We arrived in Greenhills at around 11am, my sister and I strolled around the tiangge first. Then I left GH to go to Edsa Shang at around 1pm. Roshee and I had lunch at Pepper Lunch before meeting Sweet. She agreed to meet us at Starbucks on the 5th floor. Sweet is as sweet as her name. I felt like we've clicked instantly, we went over the program for the reception. She gave some song recommendation for the grand entrance and our first dance. After about an hour and a half, we summed up the meeting and agreed to communicated about the final details over text and email. I had to return back to GH to meet my family, Roshee and I parted ways as well. She's so sweet to gave us a pre-wedding gift!

Today is a Sunday. As with any other Sundays, we always hear mass at La Sallette in Silang. Since most of the family is there that day, I requested to have lunch in Tagaytay. We went to our usual place (Yellow Cab) and had a feast of pizza, pasta and chicken wings! Yum! :) After lunch we went to my paternal grandmother's place in Las Pinas to visit them.
