When you have high expectations on something, the chance that you’d get disappointed is also high. Through the years, I’ve learned not to put high expectations on anything or anybody. I don’t exactly believe in “lasting first impressions.” Most of the time, the humble ones produce the best output and shine the brightest. Erhm, make that all the time.

Same thing with services. When you are paying for services, the cheap ones are usually substandard and good only for a single use. In this case, the chance to be disappointed is high as well. But I don’t want to generalize. I’ve seen and dealt with several service providers who came cheap but delivered on their promises. It’s a matter of luck, I guess. Oh and, online reviews are a good gauge when it comes to these service providers.

More Work To Do

The last few weeks (and days, if I may add!) prior to a big event are the busiest. If you have an eye for detail, you’ll agree with me that this is the period when we become more organized and alert for whatever could go wrong.

This is also the time when new and better ideas pop into our heads. As good as it sounds, it’s not always helpful especially when everything has been fully coordinated already. Unless it only requires a minor change in plan and would result in a major, fabulous impact, I don’t normally entertain these ideas.

Some Wedding-Related Ideas

There was a wedding held in the restaurant where I work this morning. I was on duty so I saw everything from the table setting to the little decorations that they setup inside the ancestral house to create their desired look. I think the theme was vintage and based on what I saw, they definitely chose the perfect venue and achieved the vintage feel that they wanted.

Having been there witnessing the turn of events including the program has made me really inspired. I hope my upcoming wedding becomes just as beautiful and memorable. I also got some ideas from that particular wedding which I hope to replicate in my own wedding. Like one of the games where they gave out a new cell phone and the trivia game where some chosen guests participated.

The 18-Day Challenge

This is a personal challenge that I have thrown at myself this morning. For 18 days leading to my big day, I am to monitor my food intake (making sure that I eat lesser than usual) so I could fit in my wedding gown have a more decent and desirable figure on my big day. Haha.

So yeah, starting today February 28 up to March 16, 2012, I am gonna be conscious of what I eat. I’ll also try to cut back on carbohydrates which are the building blocks of those excess and unwanted pounds. This challenge is more of a test of my self-control and though I’m not expecting too much, I will still give it my best.

Make-Up Rehearsal

I’ve had my make-up rehearsal with Weng yesterday afternoon. She’s a pro who used to work in Kuwait and she’s gonna be my MUA for my wedding next month. Her rates are quite affordable and that was my first consideration when I finally decided to get her.

Weng was easy to work with. I just told her my wedding motiff and she took care of deciding what look suits me best. But of course I still had the last say. I liked the simple look she did on me, the blending, the nose line, the highlights and all. Speaking of those, I guess it’s not so simple after all. Haha. But still, I got the look I wanted and she delivered. And that’s the most important thing.
