Counting down over and over and days are coming really to fast. Ber months is coming next week and a lot of things to do. August is the “ghost” month. I thought this month would be slack for the wedding preparation but surprisingly, I’ve done a lot of accomplishments for this month because of 2 holidays for this month and I need to maximize things that needs to be done. Since this is non peak for the suppliers, this is the time of the month where I can hoard them and talked to them. As much as possible, things that I need to order for this month should be done to avoid delays this coming ber months.

Yes, we’ve been busy for the preparation for this month but I’m so glad we had so many things accomplished.

Aug 1 – Measurement for moms both my mom and mother-in-law care of Nino Angeles Couture. Design and color was already set. Color will be in Marsala for both of them and the details are in the below sketch. Excited for the moms’ dress because both the design is sexy and class. For my mom it is backless design while for MIL the design is with slit. Both moms have been  cooperative and they have different kind of design based on what they wanted.

Aug 5 – Finalized the design for our wedding souvenir print such as the desk calendar and the planner. This will be our prints souvenir for the guests since our wedding is January, we want them to remember the year when we had our wedding. Designed was care of Papeldelights and prints are care of my mom.

Aug 10 – Application for CENOMAR. My idea was to apply in SM business center because we still have ample time to wait for it but surprisingly, Census in Pasay road which my Fiance knew about this was open on Saturdays.

Below are the steps for getting a CENOMAR:

  1. Get a CENOMAR forms to the guard and fill out the form.
  2. Bring your own ballpen and bring a copy of the birth certificate because reference is needed in getting the CENOMAR.
  3. Get a number to the guard then go to the counter to line up.
  4. Submit the forms and pay. Cenomar is P190/copy while birth certificate is P140/copy.
  5. Get the copy of the receipt and take note of the claiming date. For CENORMAR, this will be release after 4 days while for birth certificate, this can be claim after 15 minutes.
