We got married in Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel in Montecito Nuvali in Sta. Rosa, Laguna. It's a lovely chapel that very few heard about. It was the perfect chapel choice for us, and I am still giddy whenever I think about it. I've been getting a lot of inquiries about it via e-mail, and I promise to post about it soon.

Our Lady of Guadalupe

The chapel is owned by Montecito, but the servicing is administrated by St. John Bosco Parish in Laguna Technopark. St. John Bosco will provide an officiating priest if requested. For our wedding, we asked our family friend, Rev. Fr. Renie Oliver, of St. Polycarp Parish in Cabuyao, to celebrate our nuptial mass.

Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel has no strict rules in the wedding mass and ceremony, BUT we still cleared everything with Fr. Renie, including the wedding missalette, hymns, and my bridal march song. He also allowed us to recite our personal vows.

#WittAbbie Wedding Misalette

One of the most tedious and time-consuming tasks I did 2 weeks before the wedding was our missalette. I laboriously typed the entire missalette based on a Marriage/Nuptial booklet from St. Paul's Publishing. The missalette was used and approved by Fr. Renie.

To pay it forward, I'm sharing our wedding missalette file in MS Word and PDF with brides, grooms, and wedding planners. You just need to change our names to yours to complete the template. The file is in a regular Word format converted to PDF. Our awesome printer supplier, Blissful by MarKat, made the layout in a back-to-back printable format using a vellum board that they sourced online. You can check this link for samples, reviews, and ideas. 

You only need to download the file via Google Drive HERE or on Scribd below.

You can also download the MS Word format through this Scribd link. Hope this helps!

Trivia: Brides usually have 'wedding nightmares' before the wedding or during preps. My only nightmare was the wedding pushed through, and we had no wedding missalettes for the guests.
