Tying the Nat: A Real Wedding

Earlier this year, I wrote about my dream wedding and I made the following statements:

  1. I wouldn’t be getting married anytime soon, and;
  2. I promised an appearance of #Natzilla2020.

Well, I lied;

  1. I am newly and happily engaged!
  2. #Natzilla2018

#2toTantengco is my greatest pun accomplishment to date.

3,688 days of dating was capped by a beautiful ring and the sweetest proposal (in 5 words? ‘Surprise Proposal in our Hometown’), and now here we are: planning our wedding and preparing for the rest of our lives. Like f’realz.


So glad my sissies were in on C’s schemes!

The venue is picked. A date is (basically) set. And I am in full wedding planner mode.

Stay tuned for wedding-related posts because it is slowly taking over my life! For sneak peeks at my early-stage motif development, be sure to follow my Pinterest board:


I hope you’re ready, blogosphere!



Tying the Nat: A Dream Wedding

The moment I turned 25, it felt as though the universe and all of its inhabitants had one pressing question for me:

You don’t have to be engaged (Exhibit: me) to know that planning a wedding is overwhelming. From guest-lists to venue; vendors to wedding party; ceremony to reception logistics; accommodations to giveaways…

Where would one even begin?

My suggestion:

A glass of wine. And a mood board (or two, or three).

So here I am, sharing little chic bits of inspiration that I feel are the makings of a perfect, fabulous wedding!
