Millet & Hendrick’s Hand Picked, DIY Wedding

March 10, 2011

Millet & Hendrick’s wedding was held at Sonya’s Garden Country Bed & Breakfast, Tagaytay City, Philippines. With a sister who’s a wedding planner and events stylist, the bride (who is a fashion stylist herself!) was certainly in good hands when it came to creating the perfect day for her and her fiancé.

“I followed my instincts and searched all the details,” the bride told me when I asked for her main inspiration. “We didn’t spend much, but the overall effect was satisfactory to me and my husband. The guests went wild when they were advised that they can take home the centrepieces!”

Millet hand picked and put together all the flowers – from the bouquets to the centrepieces, “I like how unconventional the Parrot Tulips looked, so I had them on my bouquet. The Mom’s wore Paper Roses bib neckpieces, the Principal Sponsors wore Alstroemeria neck pieces and the Female Sponsors had fresh Carnation belt accents” she explained.

“Sourcing everywhere is key – from Flea Markets, to big and small stores, to Google!” continued Millet. “I am fond of Desserts so I wanted a table full of Desserts galore. I shared what I enjoy seeing and eating with this event. It was a fun feast where my husband and I showcased our talents.”

Lots of love and thanks to Millet & Hendrick and their photographer Pat Dy for sharing this with us today
