Check Out This D.I.Y. Modern Filipiniana Wedding!

Delicious pinks and soothing greens laid out alongside the natural beige hues of palay and trigo could be seen in several details in Eman and Jones’ modern Filipiniana wedding. One can’t help but think of sorbetes in the summer time when seeing those colors in these beautiful photos by Law Tapalla Photography. The styling for the wedding was totally on-point and get this–all of it was conceptualized by the bride’s brother and executed mostly by him and the bride! Having a long engagement with the groom-to-be working abroad made it possible for the D.I.Y projects to take shape over a period of time.

We asked bride Jones a few questions about this one-of-a-kind wedding that we know will inspire many. Read about her special day below!

This Couple Played with a White, Blue, and Green Motif for a Fresh Look

Paolo and Sabby’s wedding brought a lush garden indoors! They went all out incorporating different kinds of greenery in their invitations, table settings, and in all the decor around the classic Bellevue Manila ballroom. If you can’t have an actual garden wedding, this is definitely a clever way to bring that refreshing garden setting to your indoor venue! What makes this wedding look even more light and fresh are the white roses and baby’s breath flowers in the bridal bouquet, the flower girl head dresses, the wedding cake, and also the centerpieces. And let’s not forget the bridesmaids in their pretty light blue dresses and the groomsmen wearing neckties to match the bright and lively mood! Go on and check it out yourself through these photos by Foreveryday Photography.

An Island Destination Wedding That Didn’t Break The Bank

With just six months to plan everything from miles away in the U.S., Than and Eloi put together a D.I.Y. destination wedding on the island of Palawan that we’re sure their 40 guests will be talking about for years to come. Sticking to a simple and classic green and white color scheme, the couple maximized the natural beauty of Princesa Garden Island Resort and Spa for both their ceremony and reception. Guests were asked to come in comfortable and relaxed white outfits (like shorts!), which made loads of sense as they even went for a dip in the pool on the morning of the wedding. Everything was as well-planned as it was relaxed, including the fun, D.I.Y. wedding favors that the couple put together: personalized Starbucks cups filled with sample-sized perfumes, socks for the men, makeup for the ladies, breath freshener, and a copy of The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman. Here’s the best part: This heartfelt and simple wedding cost the couple less than 200,000 Pesos! You have to see how their day unfolded with these shots by Project M Photography!

A Fun and Bright Colored Wedding

While muted and neutral colors are timeless, going for a more vibrant palette can also make a wedding remarkable when done right. And today’s couple, Pao and Barbs, definitely knew how to make bright colors work! There are a lot of fun elements in this wedding thanks to the lively color choices that really made their day standout, like Barbs’ bridal bouquet that stood out against her gorgeous Ivory and White Bridal wedding dress, the yellow invitations with a cute illustration of the couple, the yellow kombi van, and the berry-colored dresses of Barbs’ bride tribe. All these colors added life and energy to the couple’s special day. Check out these photos by Toto Villaruel and see how you can incorporate bright colors in your wedding, too!
