Q: Any advice or tips for future Mrs.?

Be humble and know your worth.

Q: What about your love story?

The story began in June 2006 at Quezon City Science High school. Two different souls coming from different worlds. Don couldn’t turn away from the eyes that held him. It was at that moment he knew it was love at first sight. With a girl like Abby, Don knew this wasn’t gonna be easy; but after 2 years of persistent courtship, Abby finally said “yes”.
Their romantic love story was cut short as Don have to study in Baguio City and both of them needed to finish their studies and fulfill their dreams. Distance gave them a reason to love harder. They communicated through text, calls, and emails on a daily basis; but there 3-year long distance relationship has come to an end when they both decided to break up and go there separate ways.

Two years after there break up, both finished their studies and had chosen their career paths. With fate somehow intervening and by miraculous chance, Abbie and Don reconnected and rekindled there previous romance and the rest is history.

Q: Did you enjoy the wedding planning process? Why or why not?

Yes, I enjoyed every single moment there were some bumps along the way but its part of the preparations.

Q: What was the inspiration behind your wedding theme?

I always wanted something colorful for our wedding I just couldn’t convince myself to have 2 or 3 colors as a pattern. But I made sure of it that the color red will shine.

Q: What was your hubby’s reaction when he first saw you on your big day?

He was happy.

Q: What did you love most about your Cocomelody dress?

Oh gosh, what not to love? I first encounter Cocomelody on ads on Facebook. Then check your website and find all this incredible wedding dress but frankly, I really didn’t have plans on buying my wedding dress online. My three of the reasons why I bought my wedding dress is because of a Philippine service center, chief designer Puey Quiñones and his my “kababayan” I’m for Tacloban City, Leyte.
But for all the reasons I was able to have a glimpse of the fabric and styles when I visited Vince at Pasay. They were a big help in helping me all the way when I decide to buy my dress – all of its size, color, fabric details, shipping, pick –up and meetups. They were great.

Q: What do you think about Cocomelody and the customer service?

In the Philippines, If I’ll have 100 thumbs I’ll give it to Cocomelody.
