When the coolest among the David siblings finally announced that he and his long time girlfriend is tying the knot, everyone thought that Vegas theme would fit in. We have always known Doc and Tin to be fashionable, up to date and have a great set of fun loving friends. Having said that, it would be perfect if the theme would be executed well. There had been two major challenges. First would be the budget and second would be the color scheme.

Thematic weddings have always been more expensive. Specifically if you wish to imitate the feel of the sin city, so to speak. Thanks to very great supplier friends ( I am forever endebted :) ), the budget concern has been resolved. The color scheme, we had to twitch a bit since Red would not be appropriate as the passing of my dad in law fell on the same year. It could be put that Vegas is reviseable but definitely non-negotiable.

Here is how to try to make it work :)

1. Book Celeste Hotel, a very unique boutique hotel in Makati. Bring a poker game spread, dress up a bit and have the prenuptial pictorial session for 9 straight hours. Thank God for inventing "friendship"

2. Enjoy the vast space of a huge hotel room, get festive, get relaxed, get cranky ( nobody did anyway). Be anyway that you want to be, just remember to be fab no matter what.
