Preparations are underway for our ading to belong to God’s family. I actually scouted for suppliers even before I gave birth so I had a head start. The Church was non-negotiable so we had to work around it. I really like that all baptisms held in that church are special/solo so it is more intimate and there would be no fanfare. It was kind of expensive, though Php2,500 for the first pair of sponsors and Php100 for each additional pair). We also had a hard time booking our target date and time (too many kids to be baptized at this time of the year?). But all is well.
Downpayment for reception is paid for, menus chosen, amenities discussed. This was not my original choice but it will do.
Souvenir supplier also booked and paid for.
Mico took care of photobooth services.
I also had the invitation layout done by an online graphic artist thru Etsy. Happy with the results! We will print this at home ourselves.
Created an events page at Facebook where I regularly post notices, including the Save the Date card, this invitation, the map, and some reminders. This is for everyone, especially friends and relatives who are far from us to be kept in the loop.
To do at this time:
– Tarpaulin layout and printing
– Baptismal outfit
– Services of a photographer (volunteer :))
