Gladys Reyes is all what a bride should be sweet,
beautiful, and so much in-love to have a garden
Gladys and Chris have had 11 years of relationship before
deciding to tie the knot. January 23 of last year, they
were able to set the wedding date at Iglesia ni Cristo.
Exactly one year after, January 23, 2004, they were
Q: Why a garden
wedding? Gladys: It is my
dream wedding, I know it would be very romantic to have
my wedding in such a setting. Chris feels the
of my wedding suppliers there. I hired a wedding
planner only for the wedding day itself.
We were fortunate that we didnt found difficulty
in arranging our requirements well, ALMOST.
Would you believe I was only able to finalize
the flowers 2 days before the wedding?! I was
undecided whether to get a separate florist or
to stick with the flowers that came with the catering
package. In the end, I got a florist, as one of
my godparents offered to sponsor that as wedding
gift to us.
Q: Can you share
your wedding budget? Gladys: We spent
around PhP 500,000.00, exactly the same amount we budgeted
at the start. Reception venue and catering occupied
the biggest chunk. Of course, it helped some of our
requirements were given as wedding gifts.
Q: Who were your
wedding suppliers? Gladys:

Cake Vienna Cakes
Designer Totoy Madriaga
Flowers Tony Rodriguez
Invitations Al de Veyra

Let me think nothing major. A funny thing
happened, though, during the wedding ceremony.
The bestman mistakenly switched the wedding rings
and I ended up wearing Chris wedding ring,
which was too big for my finger!
Can you share some tips, advice to fellow brides-to-be?
at least 1 year in advance. Always consider your
budget. Girls, if you want to do garden weddings,
I highly recommend you wear comfortable wedding
design, and most especially, comfortable wedding
shoes (no stilettos please!).
describe how you feel while walking down the garden
aisle. Gladys: Floating.
To be honest, everything seemed to happen so fast
on the wedding day that I would like to do it
again, ha ha.
