    Life After Marriage: This Is What It’s Really Like to Live Together For the First Time

    Whenever someone asks me what it’s like to live together with someone, I always say “Masaya naman.” It’s a seemingly automated response, partly because I’m afraid of saying too much, and partly because I don’t think anyone would be too interested.

    My now-husband and I have been together for almost a decade now. We tied the knot in Baguio City last December 2023, and needless to say, it was a magical day.

    I’ve spent most of my last year thinking about the wedding, and not too much of what comes after. But four months into the post-wedded bliss, I guess I have a few sentiments that I hope one of you soon-to-be-weds finds comforting, if not useful.

      An Epic Party with Meaningful Details: Here Are Laureen Uy and Miggy Cruz’ Official Wedding Photos!

      Fashion Content Creator Laureen Uy and Miggy Cruz’s beach wedding in Palawan was the dreamiest blend of nature’s beauty and fashion flair. As expected, Laureen absolutely nailed her bridal look, rocking a beautiful Vivienne Westwood dress with a cinched waist and draped neckline that she stumbled upon in Hong Kong. According to her, it was love at first sight.

      But it wasn’t just the dress that made her look unforgettable. Laureen borrowed a gorgeous Vivienne Westwood necklace from her sister, adding a sentimental touch. The story behind it? “We saw this together in NYC and I told her to buy it because it looked great on her. After she got it, I told her that’s going to be my something borrowed for my wedding,” she shared. To top it off, she found the perfect Jimmy Choo shoes in Hong Kong, choosing platforms that were not just chic but beach-aisle friendly.

      Miggy brought his A-game too, wearing a barong with special embroideries that told their story – think Eiffel Tower, croissants, and even cacti, hinting at their Joshua Tree engagement. It was personal touches like these that made their wedding uniquely theirs.

      Their wedding decor was all about letting the natural beauty of Palawan shine, with just a sprinkle of florals lining the aisle. The setting was already so breathtaking, they knew they didn’t need much to make it pop.

      Laureen and Miggy’s special day proves that you can keep it chic and meaningful. From the fashion finds to the personal stories incorporated into their attire, their wedding was nothing short of magical. Take a look at some of these photos by Pat Dy, Team Pat Dy, Chissai Bautista, and Nelwin Uy.
