1 month!!

Was jolted to being fully awake (even after reading more than 10 wedding-related emails and replying to a number or so) when I saw the date on my computer screen – March 30!!

Alarm bells went screeching in my head. We’ve only one month to go!!! Ahhhh!!!!!!!! I should calm down, i should calm down. Ugh, if only our choice priest is not being difficult on us, I wouldn’t panic like this. 😦  

In any case, I had to wait for another bookshelf delivery hopefully this morning (yes, another bookshelf! hopefully the last one. Two were delivered yesterday) and then i’ll be off on an adventure to find the Foreign Ministry Office somewhere in Shin-Sugita for my re-entry permit. I probably wouldn’t rest until I have that on my passport. Should have went there yesterday right after I claimed my alien card (i deem it’s required when i apply for re-entry) but Hubby and I doesn’t want to risk me going farther than Maita since I have just only recovered from a very very bad sinusitis (cigarette smoke thank you very much).

Lots to do today. Hope I can manage to tick eveything off on my to-do list.

    Don’t panic, sis! (as if ako hindi nagpa-panic hehe!).

    What’s with the priest? Is it about the canonical interview or other church requirements?

    I’m actually having the same problem with our Church. We’re still trying to work it out though (which reminds me I have to call the Church Coordinator to check again if we can use a wedding gospel for all). I dunno if it’s just this year or what because both our dates fall under the “Easter Sundays”. That’s why the the gospels, as well as the ceremony, is going to be subdued.

    You better check with them too if there’ll be no restrictions as to the church music to be played. We opted to have instrumental and classical music in our repertoire, to be on the safe side.

    i agree Marj, you need to clarify re church music. for our wedding, St. Paul did not allow having our own (hired) choir, plus they have pre-set music/songs na. buti we were able to nego on one song “You and I” to be sang at the end (during signing of contract and couple photoop). pumayag na sila dun kasi tapos na ang mass proper..

    though i believe, Caleruega is quite lenient when it comes to music, vows, etc coz it’s not a parish church.

      Hi Sang,
      Thanks for the heads up as well. i asked Caleruega before and they also confirmed that they’re not very strict on the music and that we can have our outside choir/strings. Still though, i need to contact them regarding allowed music since after Easter nga naman wedding namin. 🙂
