my random ramblings

all the little things…

I have been postponing most of the small stuff on wedding planning, thinking it would be easy. IT WAS NOT.

Like the music. So I have been scouring my playlist for wedding worthy songs and ended up deleting a lot.  I thought I got it covered. Apparently the there are songs that seem wedding worthy, until you listen/read its lyrics. Googled some, grabbed some from wedding blogs and even enlisted the help of my music-loving-blogging-bestie Matti! *Much Thanks! See his wedding song suggestions here!*

So continuing with the music, I also thought the wedding dance was a walk in the park. I WAS SO WRONG!  I cannot for the life of me, dance. The last time I danced (Shakira’s Objection – Tango) was second year college. Almost a decade ago.

But, Ed Sheeran’s THINKING OUT LOUD  music video made me want to try dancing again. Maybe a rumba/tango/foxtrot would be nice and lively.  (and not like everybody else who danced waltz?!) On the first try with Kei, I was reminded again that I was not born to dance. (So yeah, I take back what I said about waltz. Maybe that is all I can do?) I need dance lessons. ASAP.

On the premise of dancing, how do I dance wearing a mermaid gown?  Do I get another dress to wear specifically for dancing?  So, if I am shelling out again for a dance dress, what about the bridal shower dress? Do I buy two white dresses? Or buy one and use it twice?  So far here are what I liked… For the dance dress:

H&M

I think this will do. 

PROS: I love the look! It looks simple, lightweight, my legs can move freely!  CONS: No padding, and I am in between sizes so, sizes 32 or 34 does not feel quite right. (Hello armpit fat!) Alteration is a must. Lastly, this kind of looks like a “waltz” type of dress, since the fabric of this dress is a bit stiff. So will that be waltz for final answer? Or do I get another dress made specifically for the wedding dance?

For the bridal shower dress: I like these dresses, but still never brought any because I am still undecided.

And another one from H&M that looks like the “for dancing dress” I had in mind.

If only H&M made this black dress to white, It would be the perfect two-in-one dress for me.

How I wish you came in white. 

But, sadly they did not. So, I am still looking for the dresses. What about the shoes? Do I buy flats or still wear my fabulous wedding shoe? It does not stop there, more of little questions running through my head… fabric, flowers, decor…etc. Decisions, decisions….sigh… drives me nuts.

holy week break

Today is Holy Monday, the official start of the Holy week.

Since I filed for  a leave a day early, the day after tomorrow is the start of my holy week holiday.

In the Philippines it starts on Holy Thursday march 27, 2013; and as of the moment I am still stuck in the office counting down hours.

Listening to my summer inspired songs from the acoustic guitar duo Depapepe (デパペペ) they really get me to a relaxing, happy, vacation ready mood instantly. (check out their summer parade album)

As of this year’s holy week break I am planning to go on a short day trip to the beach and probably bum around and catch up on sleep on these few days of rest. Or go to nearby places I haven’t been to  or the usual pool I go to on holy week vacation.

Still undecided as to what my plans are but I can wing it.

*Enjoy the rest days but do not forget to reflect and remember what the Lenten season is all about.
