Pulling off a classy wedding is possible at any budget. Find out how, like Joyce and Nico, you too can achieve that perfect balance on your big day.
Classy. There’s no other way to describe it. Joyce and Nico’s understated and classy wedding in Tagaytay was chock-full of nothing but pure elegance, both in the wedding details as well as the intimate moments they shared with their family and friends.
Nico and Joyce’s universes were aligned with the help of their common friends in social media. Later on, they even found out that they had been school mates from elementary all the way to college but had never had the chance to meet. Fate is strange and beautiful that way.
“It is true that you would know immediately when God finally gives you the blessing He has been preparing you for because of that flutter in your heart, the certainty in your mind, and the whisper in your soul saying, ‘It is you I’ve been waiting for all this time.’” – Joyce said.
Nico and Joyce were engaged in 2015 and, two years later, had the understated and classy wedding of their dreams at Antonio’s Fine Dining in Tagaytay. It was an event made possible by the Divine Being, and supported by their family, friends, and even their team of Top Knotters who aimed for nothing but the best for the couple.
From Joyce’s wedding gown to the ambiance of Antonio’s Fine Dining, the event dripped with simple elegance. It perfectly captured their Nico and Joyce’s journey as a couple. Despite the hurdles life threw at them, they were able to rise above it all with grace because of their strong foundations, in both their faith and their relationship.
Wedding Planning with Grace
To maintain grace under pressure while planning for your big day, Nico and Joyce share the following advice:
1. It Takes Two
Always consider each other’s preferences before deciding on anything, and keep each other informed during the planning stages.
2. Find your Center
Guard yourselves from thinking too much about what other people’s opinions would be about your wedding. Instead of worrying about pleasing guests, focus on the sacrament of marriage, on your thanksgiving celebration for the relationship, and on making the wedding meaningful for both of you and your loved ones.
3. Cherish your Top Knotters
Trust your suppliers and treat them with respect. Be professional, in the same way that you expect them to be. Most importantly, make sure they are cared for on your wedding day too! Feed them well and settle your balances as agreed upon in your contract.
