I initially wanted to get a kalesa as my bridal car. After all, the Bayleaf Hotel is very near San Agustin Church. But with the dilemma that I am facing right now of having to move the wedding date to 2013, thus meaning the possibility that there are no more available slots at San Agustin, has forced me to look at alternatives locations.
By moving locations, this means we also need to get a bridal car because a kalesa would no longer be feasible if we decide to book Santuario De San Antonio or Santuario De San Jose. These are the two other churches we are thinking about should we need to find an alternative.
So I checked a thread in Gtalk about bridal cars where I found suggestions from my trusty Gtalk peers.
First one I saw is the Mini Cooper Limo. I didn't even know there was such a thing! It was love at first sight and I was dead set on getting it. But I was informed by my Gtalk sissy that it's based in Northern Luzon and thus would cost around 15k, and this is way out of our budget. But then she informed me that by 2013 they will have a white Mini Cooper Limo with a possible rate of 9.5k! Well, that we can squeeze into the budget, I think.
Then another Gtalk sissy recommended her high school batchmate who was renting out their VW Limo. Again, I didn't even know there was such a thing!! I am learning so many things from my sissys! I sent a message to the VW limo owner and their rate is only 8k for 3 to 4 hours. The car looks really nice and I like it! Now I am torn between getting a Mini Cooper and a VW Limo. It's a good thing we still have time to decide since our wedding is either late 2013 or early 2014 (if I get my way).
My A-Pe will go to the temple this Sunday to check for the dates and I am wishing and hoping and thinking and praying (yeah, like the song) that it will be a date where we can still get San Agustin Church. Please please please!!
