Couple spends less than P5,000 on wedding


A couple in the Philippines who just tied the knot recently revealed that they’ve spent less than P5,000 for their special day. 

Newlyweds Geejen Monreal and Jiony Jan Macabuhay surprised netizens with how less they paid for their wedding day. 

The bride said that everything from their wedding was ‘DIY’. The dress she wore during the white-veil occasion was her mother’s gift which was just purchased from Facebook Marketplace. 

“Siguro regardless naman kung simple or elegant yung wedding, ang importante naman is present yung mga mahahalagang tao sa buhay mo and siyempre yung happiness niyong dalawa. What matters most naman is yung priorities and future plans niyo in life. Focus lang sa inyong dalawa and don’t mind what others may think about you. Importante nagmamahalan,” the bride told Manila Bulletin. 

As of this posting, the original Facebook post has now more than 20,000 shares.
