I am happy to know that my mother in law kept the wedding souvenirs that my husband brought from our wedding in July 2007. I felt nostalgic about it as she gave some of it to me just in case if I haven’t kept any. That was sweet of her and I told her the story behind it. Me, my mother and my Aunt went to Cebu to find the affordable and beautiful wedding souvenir. We went to Colon Market and we found there a long strip public market who makes this kind of art. We were exhausted of looking the different designs and prices. We were also looking for discounts too. Most of the sellers were very friendly and ready to show how nice their products were. I kept in mind the color combination of sky blue and silver or white which we chose as a motif for our wedding. And the result of it is in the picture below. It is made of recycled and rolled white office paper and they had ribbons for me to choose. I think our souvenir package cost was around P2000-3000 Philippine pesos, roughly $71 dollars. And they gave me a choice of either having one design or four designs in one package, so I chose the four designs option.
