The Kasalang Batagueño-Ilocana Suppliers Rating (Our Golden Bling-Bling)

This would be our contribution to the group. As much as possible, we won’t be using the word OC (since it has been overused here already) and we would detail our rating so it could serve you as a guide. Our verdict is based on how we coordinated with them (from start to finish) and it shouldn’t be a sole basis whether you book this certain supplier or not (different strokes for different folks). Here is how we would be rating our wedding team. Sorry for the very long delay XD

Wedding Kwento: After we paid Jo-Anne our downpayment for our supposed to be Wedding Package, She texted us saying there is a sale on wedding rings at a bridal fair in PICC last March. We went there to check for their designs and how much it costs. But before we got there, my wife has already a design in mind which design to choose. Also, she was already dealing with her friend about our rings but since she didn’t receive any response, we decided to look for others.

We instantly like one of their designs but we ask them if they could customize one for us. And as a result, our rings costs almost Php 40,000 (Costs Php 39,000). Good thing they offer 20% discount and we could pay them little by little and every time we visit their branch, we always fit our rings to see if it still fits. We were able to settle our remaining balance with them every other month until our last payment of Php 5,000. When I got the rings, I was really amazed that after trying it, we didn't want to remove it from our fingers.

By Joey Boquiren

The good thing about having these rings is that we were given a pair of mock rings to see if the rings would fit and it fits perfectly. So perfect that these are the rings that we use everyday instead of the actual rings that we got from them.

Realization: We could have been contented with wedding bands instead of adding diamonds to it. But since I haven’t gave my wife any engagement ring, I agreed on her choice of design and the ring. I should have let my wife get all the diamond stones for her rings to make it look elegant. 

Having a pair of mock rings really helped us since we could protect our rings from possible theft and being misplaced or lost.

Recommended for: Couples who are on a budget and prefers to pay in an installment basis

Other Suppliers Considered (Given the same amount of time for preparations): Matus, Suarez, My Diamond

If we started our preparations last Dec 2007, we could have gotten: Matus, Suarez, My Diamond
