Every Girls Dream

Some of you guys suggested to blog about my debut. So here it is! 
DEBUT! every girl always dreams about this day. 
But I'm weird I never wanted one until the last 3 months before my 18th birthday.
Because growing up, I always loved watching mtv's my sweet 16. So ever since that's what I wanted na. I only wanted a sweet 16. But My mom said "you'll want a debut rin" 
I even told my mom na if she gives me a sweet 16 party I wont have a debut na. 
She gave me one but I ended up having a debut parin. hahaha 
So anyway, I planned my debut 3 months before my birthday.
I'm so lucky to be related to: Teena Barretto.
She organized everything for me! I had the best birthday ever because of her!
Planning a debut is NOT EASY. Guest list palang mahirap na. I had to start with the guest list before everything else. I had to choose 100 of my friends. And to tell you honestly I had a hard time cause I wanted to invite everyone. :( So if you're gonna have your debut soon, start with your guest list already. Next was the venue. I swear picking the venue is never easy. Cause I honestly didn't know where I wanna celebrate my debut. But thank God for my tito! He told my mom to have the party nalang in 7TH HIGH. Because in 7th high. They provide for everything na. The venue, the music, the food and everything else. I only had to add the DJ, And a few lights. The rest was provided na by 7th high. The price was reasonable pa. So we decided to have my debut in 7th high na. Up next is my pre-debut shoot. Tita teena and I had to communicate via email because she was in the states a month before my debut. So I had to think of at least 3 pegs for my shoot. Picking a peg isn't easy at all. But thanks to tita teena and tuschia and the rest of her team they helped me pick the perfect pegs for my shoot. After that we needed to find a photographer for the shoot. We chose NICE PRINTS. They have the best team. I loved everyone! Thank you tita charice for everything! All the pictures blew me away. I sound conceited. But I never felt so beautiful! Next agenda was to find a stylist. And I chose LISSA KAHAYON. I love her blog! I took my chances. I messaged her on facebook and thank God she replied right away. She said yes to my shoot! I was so excited to meet and to work with her! So after that was set. We had to look for a make up artist and hair stylist. This part took us forever! Everyone was not available on the day of my shoot. Thank you to my bestfriend ynah! she recommended jackie from shishedo to do my make up. Good thing jackie was free on the day of my shoot. Next problem was my hairstylist. I actually found my hairstylist the day before my shoot. I forgot ate's name na. But she works in bench fix katipunan. Everything was set! we finished the shoot! everything went well. 

Next: My gown 
My gown was made by: Veejay Floresca. 
I always wanted veejay to make my dress. Even before my debut. 
Prom pa lang actually I wanted him na to make my dress. But due to lack of time he didn't get to make my prom dress. But thankfully he said yes to my debut! I couldn't ask for more when I saw my debut dress! to me, it's perfect! I felt like a princess! I highly recommend veejay to all my readers! He's the nicest and sweetest and one of the most talented designer I know. 

THE DAY FINALLY CAME.
Excitement was already occurring in my system the moment I woke up. 
Me and my siblings went to emphasis salon in rockwell to glam up for my debut.
Right after we went straight to our condo in the fort. Waited for 8pm.
My family arrived to 7th high before me. 
I had to wait for an hour before my grand entrance. I was so excited to see everyone!
I couldn't wait for my debut to start. 
The time finally arrived to go in and start the party. 
Everything felt right! almost everyone I invited came. my family was there.
I felt like a princess. Princess for a day. Everything just felt amazing. 
My mom was right, iba pa rin ang debut. 

To everyone who will be celebrating their debut this year, enjoy it! every second of it. From the preparations until the day of your debut. Because debut only happens once in a lifetime. :)
