Getting the Perfect Church for My Wedding

After choosing the date of our wedding, deciding where the ceremonies shall take place was the next thing we should get right. We considered several factors including the location, price, and the appearance of the church. We just wanted a simple church in Manila instead of Tagaytay or Batangas so getting there for most of our guests will be a breeze. In addition to these, we were searching for a church with a striking look in a price that’s just within our budget.

We decided to have our big day at St. Vincent de Paul and choosing it wasn’t hard. My husband who was then my fiancé is an Alumni of Adamson University which was just in front of the church. He used to go there to either pray or hear the mass. The memorable past that it holds led us to make a reservation for a September 2015 wedding.

    The church is so in-demand that would-be couples need to book a date a year ahead of the wedding date especially during peak seasons like June and December.

    Aw, this was an incredibly good post. Taking a few minutes and actual effort to make a very good article but what can I say I procrastinate a lot and never manage to get anything done.
