Boracay November 2011 (Day 3)

Day 3 (Nov. 26, 2011) - It's the Wedding Day!

Wedding was supposed to start by 8am, however, due to a rainy weather, it was delayed. We woke up late, and got dressed kinda slow so even if the wedding was moved to 9am, we were still late! haha! Not much though 'coz we arrived around 9:15.:)) The wedding was at Asya Premiere Suites. When we got there, all of the guests were wearing hats! Too bad we're late, so we're not able to get the beach hats.



the fans contained the program


 what a perfect couple!

 "you may kiss the bride!"

 our group: "college friends" haha

Vicky and Haroun

 cocktails after the wedding ceremony


the girls :)

Anyway, the wedding ceremony was done quickly because of the threat of rain. After photo ops, there were cocktails by the beach. Then for the reception, we all proceeded to the restaurant. As we entered, we were given giveaways (woven bags) and starfishes which contained names of guests and their table numbers. The program opened with song performances by some of the couple's churchmates. Then the bride and groom entered riding a golf car, and did their first dance. Videos about the bride and groom were also presented. After that, we all lined up for the lunch buffet. Gosh, there were lots of food. One long table was for salad, seafood, dessert, while another long table was for 10 different courses! And everything was just so yummy!


 souvenirs and seat assignments

 starfishes containing the names of guests

 cute souvenirs :)

 menu

 our table number!

 i finished all of these :))

After the sumptuous lunch, the couple's parents and aunts/uncles also danced. The ceremonial slicing of the cake was done next. Then came the time to throw the bouquet and the garter. But this time, there's a twist! To choose the guy to get the garter, all single guys were asked to line up in front. they were given balloons which they blew up themselves. Then they lined up from the biggest balloon to the smallest one. The bride was then asked to pick a number and she chose 8. Luckily, it was our friend who was on that spot! haha! When it's time to find out the girl who should receive the bouquet and the garter, the single girls were blind-folded. They were tasked to find one safety pin each from the top/polo of the guy. The one who wasn't able to find a safety pin was the girl to whom the guy shall put the garter on. They were so shy about what they were doing haha!

 the boys

 the girls (oh btw, its our friend Almeric who was the chosen guy)


 and there's a new pair!

just trying it out haha


It was at 2pm when we went back to our rooms to rest. We originally planned to take a nap and swim during sunset then buy "pasalubong" after. However, we all woke up late! The sun has already set when we woke up so we went straight to D Talipapa to go shopping. I bought a lot of pearls for my girl friends. Then we decided to go for a night swim at Astoria Hotel, where some of our friends have checked in. We took a lot of photos and crazy underwater videos!:))

after shopping


 new hotel

cute modern hammock


 underwater with flash

 i like the auto light adjustment setting of my cam



After taking a shower, we're supposed to attend the post-wedding dinner of our friends but we were already late so we just had dinner at Bite Club. I super loved their burgers! For our last night in Boracay, we chilled at Epic. Their drinks were kinda pricey but it was so entertaining outside, as we were moving to the beat of hiphop. while we're seated haha!


We went home at 3am, and it was a big pressure on me 'coz I was the one who has the earliest flight! Plane will leave at 9:30 so I had to leave Boracay by 6:30am to make it on time in Kalibo International Airport. But wanna know what happened? Check out my next entry.:)))))))


Day 4 (Nov. 27, 2011) - Back to reality...

The next morning, we're off to Manila. I will surely miss Boracay! Can't wait for Summer 2012!!!
