I have just done my shoot last week. Found a place that is very nice. It is somewhere behind Suntec area I think. It is a place filled with dry leaves on the ground and lots of trees around. If you like natural kind of setting, this is it! We actually didn't plan to go there. When the car was passing by that place, my photographer suddenly felt inspirational and asked the driver to pull-up by the side of the road! Took a peak at the photos on Sunday, the effect that place gave was really good. But warn you first, you have to endure walking on twigs and dry leaves, big ants and mosquitoes. (but the mosquitoes didn't get to me at all!
Hmmmm. I guess the timing it's alright, so long as you have confrimed on your guestlist, you can start sourcing for printer already.
My hotel had recommendated T-dragon printing to me. So far I've not heard of any negative comments from them, so will meet up with them to ask for the quotation.
Oh, my albums will only be ready in June & I'll share you you gals here.
Yes, I've collected my invitation cards & I'll be printing the cards this month(end of this month)
No, I've not gone for the food-tasting yet, wil be schedule in June.
The printing time depend on each printer, usually a week or so...
Don't worry, the printer will have the template of the wordings. You just have to provide them names, Hotel & timing....

Hi Loreal & Blossom,
have you gals choosen your gown?
tks for telling us where to get a matching shoe for Kua coz i went Yue Hwa today but still can't decide which pair to get coz all quite nice. Btw you bought the one slip on or cover the whole foot.
I like ur lilac and maroon dresses...lovely! I saw your beaded shoes at substance yesterday night...nice! hey, substance is having a sale now...for those who hvnt gotten your shoes, do go down and take a look!
...........really need that. Not sure whether it is really me esp the lilac gown.......colour a bit too sweet. Need to find a good corset now. I actually like the cheongsam & my WG the best.
BTW, these are only first cut, I lost weight again. Dang were saying it is at least 4 kg.
Didn't get around to weight myself.
Now, I think I am almost all set for the wedding. Me & my hubby guest list are also done up, accessories bought, flower girl settled, shoes settled, car settled, tuxedo settled, FIL, MIL, Dad & Mom clothing & accessories settled, trial make up in 2 weeks time, final fitting 2 weeks time, dinner venue settled, wedding favour settled, studio & outdoor & actual day photographer settled, florist settled, wedding scheduled settled.
1. Relatives accommodation
Any of you know of a good alternatives for hotel stay. I've got 12 couples from Malaysia that I have to foot all their expenses when they are here, from breakfast to dinner to accommodation. Trying to save cost, the accommodation is for 2 nights, Hyatt charging me at $180+++, 2 nights will cost me more than $5000. looking for cheap alternatives urgently, any suggestion.
2.My day schedule & helper list not out yet.
3. Can you gals help me to double checked did I missed out anything.
I love your Lilac WG! So sweet! I wanted to have Lilac color for my WG also but hubby say red better.
Whoa, all your wedding preparations are settled!!!! How I envy you! For me, haven't started planning my guest list yet. Car also haven't confirmed cos' hubby wants a sports car.. dunno where to find also... haiya, so many more things!!! First fitting also haven't go, shoes also haven't buy!!!
Hmm... maybe Cowie can include a checklist for us also?????
It is more for the fun and loudness of it.
When my brother got married, my sis-in-law and him did away with a lot of stuff, including the bargaining at the door. They had no ah yees or ah gus. Personally, I find it too quiet for a wedding.
Your shoes are beautiful! Can't really see your WG but you look very pretty in those EGs. I liked the cheongsam most! Nice colour! You've got everything settled???!!! That's fast! Ever thought of putting your relative up in a chalet? Not only they get a place to stay, they get to enjoy themselves too. Maybe can even have a barbeque!
Nope... haven't gone for any fittings. Haven't even confirm my designs! My 1st fitting will be the last week of June. Photoshoot is on the 1st week of July. Sigh! I'll only get to see my gown when everyone here have finish their photoshoot, maybe except LMF whose photoshoot is also in July. You having your shoot on a Sunday? Won't it be crowded everywhere? Actually it's good in a way, your gowns will get more exposure. And you'll get more admiring eyes!!!
No matter how slow you are, you'll never beat me!
My gown designs not confirmed, measurement not taken, let alone first fitting, florist not booked, shoes not bought, groom's suit not done, guests list not compiled. You don't have to worry too much cos there's always someone out there worse off than you!
What have you done to Jolene? Why she tekan you, ask you to do checklist?
Ya true... my hubby is a simple man, always trying to keep things simple. But i feel that can't be too simple if not the "qi fen" of the wedding will that be there. It's only once u get to do it, so must make sure do it to ur liking ! hee hee ...
I went for my trial makeup last mth..and had done up the design for my EG and WG. I even booked the actual day photographer.Shoes not bought yet.
I wil be having my photography session on 19 July.
Tink i did have some dreams..abt how my wedding dinner turns out badly..with lousy food (like salted egg...cheapo stuff) and lousy service....i was not dressed in my WG on my big day...just jeans and t-shirrt.. so scary! think having phobias..
Think must start planning my stuff fast to prevent any thing from going wrong
Oops, I got it mixed up... supposed to write EG but wrote WG instead...
Sheep: No lah, Cowie did nothing to me. I tot since Cowie did such a good job in the dates compilation, maybe she can have a checklist for slow and lazy people like us mah.... I think it will benefit everybody here also, rite? We can also use it as a guide to "pace" each other. eg, by when we should have taken pics, settled guest list, etc... Hahaha... more like a checklist for you and me...
whoa, you have gone for your trial make up already? I called GHA the other day and was told that the trial make-up session will be held after the photoshoot, so at least I get to experience two different make-up artistes. So how did yours go? got photo?
Your WG, is it a bustier? What about your EG? What colour is it?
My dreams were weird too. My first dream was FH din fetch me frm my pl, rather we met in church! My second one was, we were in the church (perhaps a continuation frm the first) but the invitations weren't sent out at all, and I didn't do my nails...
my photoshoot will be held on May 10, so most likely I will go for a trim end of this mth..
quite excited lor, because I dunno how they are going to style my short hair.. so which photographer svcs did you engage?
