[PRESS RELEASE] New Online Bridal Registry Site Launched to Provide a More Integrated Registry Experience for Couples

Quezon City, PHILIPPINES. -  Admit it; one of the great things about getting married is receiving all the presents you need to start your new life with your new life partner. And thanks to bridal registries, couples no longer have to go through the age-old problem of having three rice cookers and five blenders. A new site is now taking this convenience even further using Internet technology. is an online wedding gift registry site that revolutionizes the bridal registry experience by integrating different stores into one registry, providing real-time updates on purchased items, and incorporating a more interactive platform for couples.

With Gift Haven Registry, the experience begins with the couple’s profile. Those familiar with social networking sites will find this first step enjoyable as you and your significant other create your account, personalize your profile with pictures and a message to your family and friends, determine your registry style through a fun quiz, and customize your wedding gift registry cards to send out to guests. The next step is to browse around and pick from the wide array of items you can add to your wedding gift list that include kitchen tools and gadgets, cookware, dinnerware, and other home decors. Generous friends and family can even contribute to purchase your dream honeymoon for you. And if your husband-to-be is disinterested in planning the wedding, he will definitely be by your side through the bridal registry process once you show him the Groom’s Corner where he can find everything he needs for a home entertainment system, the garage, or his man cave. 

The best thing about an online gift registry is that you can do everything without even leaving your house! No need to take trips to different stores and check your registry gift list every week. Gift Haven Registry integrates different retail establishment partners and provides you with one master wedding gift list that gets updated in real-time. Your guests will also enjoy the convenience of doing their shopping for your wedding gifts online. Your friends can choose to chip in to buy part of a high-priced item that you selected.

Share your wedding!

One of the reasons I put up this blog is because I wanted to share to everyone the inspirations that helped me create my own wedding.

Next month, on the 9th, my husband and I will be celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary. 

And I realized I really haven't shared my full wedding preparation experience. I only got to share you the moodboard I made for my wedding. But I haven't really told you the nitty-gritty, the bits and pieces of the preps.

And as my blog says, "tips and ideas ...from my own personal experience." I think it's time I share them with you. :)

But on the next post. I have to collate my photos first.

After I share my own wedding with you guys, I'm inviting you to also share your big day (and the days before it) to the other readers of Inspired Weddings. We'd like to see how you created your wedding day. It'll be fun for everyone, and I'm sure future brides and grooms would love the inspiration you'll give.

If you'd like to share your wedding story, email me at I'll start with my own wedding, then anyone who wants to have their story published here can contact me.

Hope you can join me in this endeavor. :)

Inspiration Board: Yellow and Brown

I dunno why I'm leaning to shades of brown lately, but I always thought of it as a good neutral-colored complement to a bright or rich color. And I also realized that it's been a while since I used yellow for my inspiration boards, and this is why this board came to be. Seems like a nice color combo for rustic or summery weddings.

Hope you like today's inspiration board:

Middle row: Thisleberry Press, shadow090109 via Etsy.
Bottom row: Siri, Amanda Pair.

Will be posting soon, so just continue to drop by the site. :)

Toilet Paper wedding dresses

Yes, you read that right. Cheap Chic Weddings held a contest on the best wedding dress creation using rolls and rolls of toilet paper. And you'd be surprised with how creative the entries were.

The winning dress was made of 4 rolls of toilet paper, glue, and packing tape:
Susan Brennan's flower-and-feather strapless dress wins her USD 1,000.
The 2nd place dress was also cute, with layers of ruffles for the skirt. This was made from 1-ply tissue, duct tape, spray adhesive, and first aid tape:
Laura Lee's strapless dress with layered ruffled skirt
I personally liked the 3rd place creation, which used 20 rolls of toilet paper to achieve the flowers and the frilly train:
Wonderful skirt and train details from Cynthia Richards' entry. Her daughter helped create this piece.
It's so wonderful how designers, professional and budding, can come up with amazing wedding dresses like these -- and they're even made from everyday household materials such as toilet paper! Just goes to show that creativity can go a long, long way.
