After we pencil booked the date of our wedding with the caterer yesterday, we went off to Our Lady of Consolation Parish (OLCP)to check the church as well as the Bulwagang Recoletos for the reception venue. I was able to browsed on the net the night before about the venue and it looks decent for a good wedding reception. In the end, when we got there I felt good about the church and the place is really quiet and it brings out any kind of solemnity one wants. The church is a just right to fit a number of guests, not a small chapel that we wanted but it is definitely smaller than Malate Church.
We went to the parish office to inquire about their wedding rites package and it costs Php 16,000.00 inclusive of everything even the electricity charge. Lucky for us, there was a wedding on the site when we got there. We were able to see the set of the church for a wedding. It looks plain and simple just the way we want it. The flowers are nice as well and it is all pretty. Good thing that the church is well-lit even if the door will be closed because of the tall glass windows on both sides of the church.
After inquiring with the parish church, we went to the next building where the Bulwagang Recoletos is standing. It looks really ok from the outside and when we got in, they are setting up for a wedding reception. The venue is not bad, but the ceiling is quite low for me but then it is really clean and intimate. We took pictures of the place. Christian said that he gives the place a check on our list if he is going to be asked. He is saying that it is near our place, near to his relatives and friends. The rate of the rental is not bad too.
In the end, we are still looking around... still not decided on where to get married...

There was an ongoing wedding when we arrived at the church. This was the set up being prepared by the caterer in one of the halls at the Bulwagang Recoletos. I am not a big fan of the color orange!!!
