Part 4: Suppliers’ Rating – Hosts, Coordinators, Strings, S.System & AVP Equipments

Hosts - Jorrel Yap & Rae Dimaano
Rating : 5+++
Cost : Priceless


These 2 guys made the party a success, no dead air – super okay ang tandem nila. Memond & I met them only once – over lunch. W provided them the program flow, how I want it to happen, the script and some instructions. They were able to deliver it nicely, parang hindi scripted. Some of our guests even thought that they were professional emcees, magagaling daw.

Jorrel is a HS friend of mine from Pampanga, while Rae is a college friend of Memond. It so happened that they know each other because officemates sila before sa isang call center and they belong in one account. Galing nga eh, parang pinagtagpo at pinagkakilala sila - small world tlga.

Jorrel actually knows how I want the program to be, dahil co-emcee nya ako dati sa weding ng friend nmin. Hehehe. So it was a bit easy for him na rin. :-)

Rating: 5++++

Cost: Priceless

Church – Officemates: Jhoanna Rivera, Kat Obcena & Aziel Aquino

Reception – My High School Friends: Jowette, Noel, Sha, Gladys, Ericson, Rush, Gang, Dexter & Grace

Saying thanks to these guys is not enough. Another tasks assigned to friends that is professionally done. Again, akala ng mga ibang bisita professional coordinators sila, even our suppliers napabilib nila. The party daw was very organized and kung magtrabaho sila hindi kapansin-pansin as if they were not there. I was actually their head planner. I gave each one of them a role na babagay sa knilang personality and maybe profession na rin along with checklist at mga notes. See our wedsite download page.

I was even touched with them. They even checked-in a hotel the night before the wedding to discuss their roles and checklists I gave them para di daw sila nagmamadali at mataranta the wedding day, manggagaling pa kasi dapat sila ng pampanga, may umuwi pa nga from Singapore just for our wedding :-)

Dami ko coordinators noh? Di pa kasma ung mga ibang nag-assists dyan. Hehehe. I feel so much blessed with friends tlga.
Strings: Impressions Music Ensemble
Rating: 4.5
Cost: 12k (quartet)

Bong & Johanna Lonzon are nice to deal with. Madali silang kausap and they played naman nicely what is on our song list. Ang nakakatuwa pa about them is that dahil hindi kya ng quartet to play our chosen grand entrance song (Father of the Bride – which was their suggestion at ang ganda tlga nya for a grand entrance) sa reception they did the burning in cd at binilin ko na lng sa kanila na sila na bahala coordinate with the sound system supplier and they did. Bait!

The rating would have been 5 sana, kaya lang during the group picture at the church altar sobrang lakas ng tugtog nila, hindi marinig yung sequence ng pictorial announced by the commententator. Kaya konti lng tuloy ang altar group pics and church façade picture taking at wla na masyado guests nung mag dove release na kmi, hindi narinig clearly kasi yung announcement. Hay.

Sound System: 60 Hertz
Rating: 5
Cost: 4k + 500 for bubble machine (reception only)

Since our strings reco them, sila na ang kinuha nmin dahil they will most likely work with each other. Super dali kausap ni Duane Dagsil, thru texting lng ang booking and fax ng contract. Then sa event day na ang bayaran.

The sound system was nice, d sabog or what. Maganda naman ang kinalabasan
LCD Projector & Screen: ITech Systems
Rating: 5
Cost: 3k (discounted dahil my ni-refer ako :p)

We got the Panasonic 4000 ANSI Lumens projector and 8X8 screen. The lowest rate ever na nkita ko ditto sa
w@w at it didn’t failed us. Super linaw and we never experienced any technical probs, lhat ng laptops that connected are compatible.
One of the suppliers na madali lng nmin na book. I met Rence Pagdaayao in our office at lunch break then he did the demo, afterwards book na kaagad. May contract pa khit 1k lng ang DP.
