Minutes before young superstar Judy Ann Santos walked down the aisle to meet her groom, actor-TV host Ryan Agoncillo, on April 28, 2009, one short-haired woman was busy giving instructions through her mobile phone to a person she addressed only as “Kapitan.” Her instructions were clear and carried out as she so specified: place a jeepney or a bus by 6 a.m. in the middle of the not-so-busy road that would lead to the San Juan Nepomuceno Church in San Juan, Batangas. The early-morning wedding, kept in secrecy for months, was discovered by the media at the crack of dawn. From Metro Manila, print and TV reporters zoomed to the church but they could not get near it because several kilometers away, the only road that led to the cathedral was blocked by a bus.

Couples do not get as much freedom in regards to conceptualising their wedding since the packages are tied to fixed service providers. So… If your wedding co-ordinator does not have timely planning - suck thumb. If your photographer took wedding photos that you found too cheena - suck thumb. If your make-up artist's skills are like Ruhua's… Well. In all cases, you just gotta suck thumb lah. There's nothing else you can do once you've signed up for the package really. Unless you've managed to find someone desperate enough to buy over your bridal package, you're pretty much stuck with it. On the other hand, engaging your own vendors a.k.a going a la carte would probably yield more satisfying results for the fussy bride. Since you'd be doing the coordination yourself, you are given absolute control over the wedding decor, choice of photographer, etc. The downside is the cost. Doing your wedding a la carte would mean you'll need to pay vendor prices and this difference can … [Read more...] about Wedding packages in Singapore: How exactly do you choose one?
