With that in mind, I knew I would never miss the chance to go shopping there again for some of our wedding paraphernalia.
In an earlier entry, I've mentioned that my gown designer, Mia Barlaan, offered a wedding dress package that, aside from the gown, included all of the other items we would be needing for the celebration.
For an additional Php5,000, I could get a personalized second veil, cord, arrhae (sans coins, of course), garter and ring and coin bearer's pillows. To say that I was surprised was an understatement. Five smackers for all those?!
I was due to drop by Divisoria anyway, so I decided to browse through the pickings there first before deciding. Good thing I did too as I was able to spend waaayyyyy lower than what she offered for all items.
Here's a rundown:
|Wedding cord for Php145|
|Our DIY invites. Paper flowers needed for this bought in Divisoria for Php10 per 20 piece bundle. Arrhae for Php28.|
|Both ring and coin bearers' pillows for Php85|
I also bought a gown for one of my wedding sponsors there, in a place called Shaira's Bridal Shop. Was selling for Php700.
All items sourced in shops in Tabora St., Divisoria.
The only thing I didn't buy there was the bridal garter, mainly because I didn't like the colors they were offering. Was able to buy one in Landmark for Php199.75.
Hope this helps. J
