PS Gifts and Other Musings

My sister-in-law, who volunteered to make our giveaways, just sent me a picture of the rosary she made for the principal sponsors. She made two, one using pearl, the other using dark red swarovski to match our motif. She's asking me to choose between the two. I think I'm leaning toward the pearl. Here's the picture:



I was thinking that these should only be for the female sponsors, but Rogel and his sister are of the opinion that male sponsors can receive this as well. I was originally thinking of giving wine...

I asked her to make our wedding cord as well, but she wants me to ask our church first because they might not allow a cord using beads. I've noticed at W@W that most of the brides are now using a rosary cord with colorful beads rather than the traditional white cord. I showed Rogel a picture of the rosary cord, and he doesn't like it... he says it seems like a mockery of the rosary, because of how it's made - there are two loops instead of one, so it's not really a 'normal' rosary. He also thinks our church won't allow it.

I suppose we'll just have to ask our church...

We had a rosary cord as well. It was made by my MOH. But my MOH came late during preps that's why the photographers weren't able to take pictures of the rosary cord. I still bought a regular cord though and that's what the photographers were able to photograph.
Sis, if you want a rosary cord, I must tell you that ours got intertwined that the cord sponsors had a hard time untangling them while they were putting them around us. It even latched on the lace of the secondary veil. Hassle! We should have used the regular cord instead since yun naman ang napicturean....
The pearl rosaries look nice. You can give them to your male PS as well. :)

Hi Tani! Thanks for the advice. =) Onga, hassle naman na nabuhol yung rosary cord. Hmmm, makes me think twice.

And thanks, I think we'll give the male sponsors rosaries too. =)
