OK. Maybe u all let me know which day u r keen, weekday or weekend? U all prefer lunch or high tea or dinner? Bringing along hubby? OK, let's vote for weekday or weekend first. Then i will come out a date. Pls support.
Sure you can look for me. You've been so nice to share with me. I leave in South Horizon, it's near the 'Ocean Park' and 'Jumbo Floating Restaurant'. I have to say that you must not miss the 'ladies market' if you go shopping for clothes, festival walk is a great place. Everytime I'm there I spend a whole day. The building has everything from Giordano to Giogio Armani. Sure can find something you like.
To see, depends on what you like. The night scene from The Peak is great. My friends enjoy throwing oranges up the wishing tree.
Great food is everywhere. You got a be a dare devil and eat off the street hawkers, theirs are the most delicious.
Send me a mail when you come by, I'll be most happy to show you around.
what i did previously was to send a mass-mail to all in the list, stating a date, time and some places and ask them to choose. those who are interested will reply.. then i note it down..
after some time, say, abt a week or two cos not all check their mails regularly, then i'll send a confirm note to all (including those who did not reply) so that if they want to come at the last moment, they still know where we are meeting...
Tomyam, it's really up to you..if u feel uncomfortable gg to your colleague's wedding, then better dun than sorry...have u ask your colleague whether he/she mind as well?
btw, i'm attending a friend's wedding in June, I'm her jie mei too! i think June is still ok lah har?
ahem..Let me introduce myself..I'm one of the pioneer in this thread (hehee)..ya..agree that the thread is not v active for quite some time liao..but hey! our wedding are drawing near..time to share share more info liao ya?
I sign up wif Bridal Veil, will be gg down to BV to have my first fitting soon!
ai..thedevil, my photoshoot is in August..very late hor? but it's before chinese 7th mth lah...
hello Lollipop, how's your preparation? I din do much cos I'm very bz wif my new flat reno now..
i am back!! Wow, so excited to see the exchange of news & happenings!! I have just ROMed last friday & well, marriage life has been great so far. Cant stop grinning! heehee...
Angeline, my husband a HKer too but he has become a Sporean. As for me, i hv never really like hkg as it's so packed. So never expect myself marrying a HKer. (^_^)
For the brides who are looking for an actual day photographer, something affordable but not fanciful stuff like journalistic shots, i have met up with 2 who falls under this category. Both based on frens' recommendations. If keen, i can post up their details later. Need to look back fm my Palm.
i am not upset with Allure lah. Guess there's always room for improvement after the 1st outfit. It's quite difficult to expect the designer to come up with something that fits you when they hardly know us.
i tried on the tea dress after my ROM to show to my family & surprisingly, they tot i look better in the tea dress as the beading looks elegant. So i might be wearing that for my actual day. Shall decide then.
Since most of you all are not able to meet during weekdays, then we shall decide to go and meet on Saturday. Can u all meet on 8 June 02 (2 weeks from now). Can u all suggest the venue to meet, what to eat?
Welcome. I guess it's up to individuals. I know of some friends who ddin't attend their friends' weddings because they are a few months apart.. discuss with your Fh and your parents and see what conclusion you can draw up.
Taken my photos on May 10. We chose Marina South, East Coast and Art Museum. It was fun albeit hectic. Was told the photos would be ready this week.
Have scouted for ideal wedding favours. For those who are still looking around, you can check out Stadium Cove. They have some of the prettiest things there!
Where's Stadium Cove? Sounds like a sports shop to me. I am looking for wrist corsages that doesn't cost too much, else may make make own. Anybody got 'lobang'?
My wedding day is on 5 Oct.
Well I guess no choice. Got to avoid attending 4 mths before and after. My SIL who is giving birth in Sep might even got to miss our wedding. unless my nephew choose to come out early.
yah... we have to look out for many 'ji4 hui4' , like can't send out invites during the hungry ghost month, etc.
Stadium Cove is located outside Indoor Stadium. You can't miss that place. It's filled with white tentages
From afar, it looks very romantic.
Dun think they sell wrist corages there. Have you engaged a florist? They would be able to help you kon that. Will you be having a church wedding? At Stadium Cove, they have mainly candles and incenses, scented and non-scented ones.
I have engaged an actual day photog. In fact, last year!
I'm sad to leave my family too, but I am looking forward to married life.
so envious, everything almost ready is such a relief. Me still struggling. yday was trying to write my invites cards and it's such a chore with the guest to be invited ! *headache*
don't panic ! i think first of all, have enough sleep. maybe take leave to sleep it off ? 2ndly, don't drink water before you sleep. 3rdly, heard tea bags will help. Used tea bags, put then on ur eyes (cooled down ones ..) for a few minutes, it's supposed to reduce puffiness.
I am toying with the idea of using an MPV as my bridal vehicle, what do you gals think? Is it very weird? I just thot it is a refreshing change from the mercs and at the same time, i can squeeze my jiemeis into the car. How? What MPV would be gd? Thinking of Mitsubishi Spacewagon or Toyota Pinic...pls share with me your thots...tks!
anyhow, about getting an MPV, think that's a good idea...dun see why we need to use those posh expensive cars....I'm looking for a Volks beetle actually, but can't find one!!!! sigh....want to use one for my photo shoot too!!!!ha ha.
but why do you want your jiemeis in the car with you? to add fun? will your husband mind? that's the only thing, otherwise, will be good fun...
I'm new here in this thread... came here after visiting Inspiration Collection and Amy Lew the designer recommended me this site. I'm more regular at www.femalebridesonline.com any regulars there from here?
My wedding date is on 7 Dec and gosh, I've neither confirmed my venue nor gown!
Venue - shortlisted Shang and Raffles, garden style with 100 guests.
WG - currently like Inspiration's but will be seeing Divine tonight, heard lotsa praises abt them!
Me no better than you. At least you have settled on a boutique.
I am also looking for a outdoor venue about about 80 pax, been recommended Conrad poolside and Hyatt's orchird garden. What do you think of those.
Whoa, what a coincedence. My hubby find SGP too boring. I like to work in Hong Kong but when I am ready to retire I'll go back to SGP. You can't have a life here.
i went for my photo shoot last week. it was a memorable day. i like my make-up, hair-styles and gowns a lot. the outdoor shoot was fun too. we went out at around 6pm. it wasn't hot, there was even a cool breeze, quite lucky since these few days are very warm and stuffy.
it was really tiring, having to wear really thick make-up (i have to wash my face 5 times to remove it.), heavy gowns and heels throughout the day. but it was really a wonderful experience. hope my photos turn out well... but may end up spending a lot.
to those who haven't gone for ur photo shoot, it's an experience u will never forget. enjoy urselves!
I've been to both these places.. what's your date?
GH only available for 21 and 28 Dec for that month's sats.
Conrad poolside is nice, staff very frenly as well. However, not pleased with the decor of the salon. It used to be a jazz bar, with black and white striped cushion upholstery and pop art on wall..... very kitsch!
They can't do anything to cover the stripes so unless you're ok with that or willing to spend more, Conrad is a nice place.
Your guest list is abt the same as my!
Do consider Raffles and Shangri-la as well... in fact, they are my 2 choices.
For Raffles, there is a gazebo and they will be erecting white marquee.
hope the info is helpful. if u need more info, forward me your email!
How come your outdoor shoot started so late? I thot people normally go out around 3-4pm? But lucky for you the evening was cooling...these few days are really hot! I can imagine my poor FH melting inside his thick suit!! So, where did you go for outdoor? Mine is all outdoor so i am now cracking my brains for some nice locations
Great to hear that your photos turn out well
Greetings !! Me still in Edinburgh... I like the idea of using MPV... I dun mind the Lexus RX-300... posh and nice.... but between a Mitsubishi and a Toyota.. I will opt for the Mitsubishi.. cos the outward appearence looks more appropriate as a bridal car...
Me.... think one of the last few in this thread to take my bridal pics... 2 more weeks to go !!! Getting excited and nervous as well... have to go back on a diet when I get back... the food here is just too sumptous for me to resist...
Yar...we love the Lexus RX300 too! So nice rite? Too bad most of the car rental companies here only have the usual boring cars. I think i will most likely settle for the Mitsubishi too 'cos my colleague has one and it's so comfy!
Hmm...marina bay sounds gd...near to millenia walk, a place where i wanna go too...
For those who have gone for your photoshoot, apart from make-up removal, are there any other useful items we shld bring along for our photoshoot?
yes I'm in HK now. That's the bad thing. Can't go shopping for the hotel or boutique. Just relying on what people say.
My day is the 28th. GH is Grand Hyatt right? Did you get any pix for Shang, can send some to me?
I did think of Raffles. Actually it was my first choice but price is too steep. :'-(
What was your package like?
Erhm, dunno about the rest. But for me, I think just have to bring the minimum. Like appropriate change of shoes, make-up removal......That's it...
But in my case, we had lots of chocolates with us too! Cos we did not want to waste time stopping to eat proper lunch. So, we got chocolate bars, KitKats, Toblerone... to give us energy thru'out the day
In fact, my make-up artist bought them for us. The thing is dun just go without food, cos the tiredness will show on your faces in the photos
