  • How much should a wedding gift cost?

    A co-worker (also a friend) just got married and i gave her a gift worth PhP1,000. I figured that she would have to had budgeted around PhP500 per head (caterer, souvenirs, etc) and my SO and I were invited (we attended both the actual wedding at the church and the reception). Is that a reasonable enough amount for a gift? We didn't contribute to the money dance.

  • Weird Labs... am i pregnant or what?

    My beta-hCG results are POSITIVE but on the low side (4 weeks = 35 B-hCG, 5 weeks= 224.76) but my ultrasounds (I've had 2) show no signs of a baby growing anywhere. My doctor is playing safe and putting me on bedrest with medications (duphaston and duvadilan, both 3x a day for 2weeks). Anyone with any idea what it could be?

  • How to address a wedding invitation envelope when...?

    a full colonel is also a doctor? Do you address the outer envelope as Col. Elizabeth Smith, MD, what about the inner envelope? is it Dr. Smith or Col. Smith?

    would it also matter in the invite itself when:

    the groom is a major with an RN?

    the bride is civilian but a doctor.

    do you put ALL the titles, etc or just the major ones?

    thanks in advance!

  • What color rose should I place on their seats?

    What color rose should I place on my dad's chair at the ceremony and what color rose should I put on my grandmother's chair? My dad passed in 2001 from Lung cancer and my Grandmother passed in 2008 from Liver cancer. I would have wanted both to be there when I get married, but they won't be there physically.

    Any ideas on how to remember them in the wedding?

  • When writing your invitation to your pastor, do you write Doctor or Pastor on the outer envelope?

    He is the Senior Pastor at our church and also holds a PhD. Do you address the invitation to a wedding he is officiating as "Doctor and Mrs. John Smith" or as "Pastor and Mrs. John Smith"? Is there another (more proper) way to address this envelope?

    Thanks in advance.

  • I don't have a Maid/Matron of Honor. Help?!?

    I asked my cousin 3 weeks ago but she hasn't replied regarding that. She keeps saying she's busy. I'm having second thoughts about her being my MOH, esp since she just had her marriage annulled civilly and is processing her church annulment. That, and she always says she's busy. Could I just not mention the whole thing and consider the question as "unasked"? I was thinking of asking someone more reliable to be my MOH.

  • Know of any good but reasonably priced wedding suppliers in Metro Manila...preferably around the Ortigas area?

    We're on a budget. We already have a venue and a caterer. I'm looking for a photo/video guy (or gal), and maybe a DJ. Oh, and if any of you know a good modista in Divisoria that would be appreciated too. =)

    Thanks in advance!

  • What will/did you splurge on and what will/did you save on at your wedding?

    Sometimes you can't have it all, so I'm asking what aspects of your wedding are you or did you splurge on and the ones you decided to be a little more thrifty. Why?

    I'm thinking about getting really good photo/video for the whole thing, but saving on flowers. I figure that the flowers just last for the day but I will be able to show my grandkids the photos and the video.

    Thanks in advance!

  • Would you invite this person to your wedding?

    She's your mom's only sister, but has been fighting with your mom over inheritance since last year. She's shouted at your mom (in public). She's shouted at you (while you were pregnant). She likes to make scenes and twists your statements. Her husband keeps telling her not to make scenes or cause drama but she does it anyway.

    When she tied the knot, she invited you and your brothers, but not your mom. She even asked your mom to send another invite over to someone else. Then, invited your mom as an after thought. Your family decides to boycott her wedding (because of what she did) and she gets furious about it, calling you names.

    She also likes to set people up (asking them over for lunch or dinner at a resto), then starts shouting at them over some issue. She's done this several times.

    Do you have to invite her out of obligation? Is it better not to send an invite at all? Would an announcement do? You can't really say "only close family and friends invited" because again, she's your mom's only sister.

    Thanks in advance.
