Dindi Gallardo's Vintage Chic Wedding
04 October 2011

Former Binibining Pilipinas-Universe (1993) and actress, Dindi Gallardo, finally tied the knot last September 7. The United States-based actress, who awed the Philippines in the 90’s with her statuesque beauty, got married to her longtime friend, Eric Mills, in New York.

The couple exchanged vows at the New York City Hall before their closest friends. This was followed by an equally simple wedding reception.

The Gallardo-Mills wedding had a vintage chic theme. The theme was Dindi’s idea, believing she is an “old soul.”

“I never thought that a wedding could be so easy, stress-free, and extremely affordable,” shared Dindi. The couple wanted a simple and intimate wedding ceremony, but with their wedding theme, they got even more than what they wished for. The couple’s wedding turned out to be a radiantly simple yet classy celebration.

Dindi and Eric planned their wedding strictly within their budget. Dindi is proud to share that their budget did not even go over $1000. She wore a vintage mini-dress, which she bought online for only $45. To add elegance to her dress, she accented it with a 1940 vintage veil bought at a vintage shop for $25, and a vintage purse. The baby’s breath bouquet was made by Dindi, herself, and their wedding rings were bought online. And to work their budget out, they just relied on their own cameras.

The couple is really happy about their one-of-a-kind vintage-themed wedding. But besides the ceremony, Dindi and Eric will not forget the random people they met and had their pictures taken with as they walk to the city hall. An American magazine even asked the couple if their wedding could be featured in the magazine.

Truly, it is not the money that matters in a wedding. What a couple need is their LOVE for each other, and their heart and will to have a memorable ceremony. Congrats Eric and Dindi!
