50th Wedding Rehearsal

In today's society, a ten-year marriage seems like an accomplishment for most people. Considering the high divorce rates, particularly in the United States. Actually reaching your 50th wedding anniversary seems to be an even greater accomplishment than winning a mega sweepstakes.

Here are some photos during the 50th wedding rehearsal. It is good to know that everybody in the family took a very special care in planning the party even if it was a simple one. The 3 great-grandchildren are one of the highlights of the ceremony. A bible bearer, a ring bearer and a flower girl.

The original plan of my grandparents was to renew their vows in the church, but there's a slight problem....the cost of the priest to officiate the ceremony is too expensive...waaaa...I thought it's FREE...lol! So I volunteered Greg instead.

I might need to check the sync program tonight. This program allows you to replace old files with new ones. Btw, here's my Ma and Pa...they just finished blowing up the balloons....:)

  1. that is so true Dhemz, bihira lang dito sa US ang mga nagse celebrate ng 5oth wedding anniversary nila. I witnessed one couple who celebrated their 50th wedding sa campground where I worked and they are just happy as they can be... If my dad is still alive, 28 years na sana silang kasal ngayon.

  4. Hi Dhemz!

    I had no idea about a priest being so costly at a ceremony such as this. It is a very caring family you have, and I like the kid pics, too.

    Have a great night my very dear friend!

  6. Parang miracle nga sa mga taga ibang bansa kapag ang pagsasama ay umabot nang 50 years or golden wedding anniversary pero sa Pinas gaya nang pinatunayan nang lolo at lola mo ay ordinaryo lang iyon. Matiisin kasi ang mga Pinay kaya maski paminsan minsa eh naliligaw si mister ay nagagawang patawarin ni misis wag lang masira ang relasyon nila at kinabukasan nang mga bata. Sa ibang bansa kasi ang katuwiran nang mga babae eh, kung kaya ni lalaki eh kaya rin ni babae, lol. Sana umabot din nang golden wedding anniversary ang pagsasama nyo nang hubby mo. Pastor ba ang mister mo at pwede siyang magkasal? Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
