Ya Sammi that is the one. Maybe I fussy abt workmanship. My dad and bro are doing theirs at Raffles Tailor and their workmanship is tip top. Comparing Dick with Raffles is like comparing Metro with Gucci..... Now my brother and dad look more handsome than my hubbie. hee hee
but they didn't close the whole botanical gardens right? Shd check with National Parks before we go there...
Wah, u lagi more champion!! U definitely qualify for last place, all of us no fight!
So u won't be showing your PS pics at your wedding dinner right, cos seems like not enough time leh... "at home" means in singapore or literally your house?? U doing those casual shots in tees and bermudas? That's cool too!
My ps date also not 16 may liao!!! What a coincidence! I only get to confirm the change yesterday. New ps date is 13 May. Bridal shop called yesterday and said their bridal fair is postponed from Apr to May and happen to fall on 16 May. We requested for a wed (day before Public Holiday) or fri. But dates are fully booked. So we settled for 13 may lor
4.Make guest list
6.book actual day photog
7.trial make up
I only did 3 & 7, PS is 9 May. Now my face vrey ugly cos got allergic to the sunblock recommended by my beautician leh..hopefully will recover by May..if not..very ugly..cham !
Now sourcing for Actual day photographer and videography..comparing prices and looking at their products..Choon Huat is quite expensive for normal 8 rolls of 4R films..but must said tat his shots are quite good.
How's the rest of the gals doing?
m so bz with house & reno so no time to prepare for wedding. reno finishing this wk, next wk i'll assess b4 they handover.
then figure nxt few wkends shopping for furniture & stuff thus still wont hv time to do wat u gals are doing nowreparing wedding,gowns,shoes,etc..
my 1st fitting & trial makeup & choosing OTR gowns for ps is end may & my ps is 3rd wk of june!! can imagine?? well, my coordinator say got time ,so i give her benefit of doubt loh...
poki still around, she emailed me separately to ask me abt reno.
saw cookie during lunchtime today as we went lunch at OUB Sakae sushi.
oh no, allergic to the products....thats bad, i also had that problem before, face became all red and swollen.
i recommend you to use evian mineral water to wash your face for the next 2 weeks instead of tap water. H2O is the best cure for skin irritation and the minerals present will help to soothe the irritation too!
yes, my WG is MTM, they don't seem to be entertaining me much leh, more interested in "conning" new brides. Maybe bcoz I paid more than 1/2 the package price already, so they know I am a fish in the net, don't need to bother
normally bridal shops are like that
once you signed with them somehow the level of service would deteriorate (but not all shops-lar)
actually one way that you can do would be to go there during their peak hour and voice out your unhappiness and complaints then (esp when there are potential customers! hee)
somehow the services would be better
(I tried this when I bought one of the second-hand OTR EG and it WORKS!) -- i think I am really mean hahaha
Oh i see... i really keeping my fingers crossed nothing will happen at nus during this period. Coz exams starting next week and i have papers on 21 and 29 Apr. NUS won't be closing and no postponement of exams thus far.
Hi Jun brides, I'm actually a may bride (21 may), prob'ly postponing my wedding to Jul. Cldn't find a Jul thread and this was the closest.
I'm very troubled. Bec of the SARs thing, only decided to go ahead with postponing my wedding to mid-Jul just today. Wrote in to my hotel already. Now I'm not sure whether my choice is correct.
So far, my hotel, studio, emcee (Daniel) is ok. My mom, ILs ok, majority of friends also think may be good idea to postpone. I don't suffer a lot of $$ losses. So I don't know why I still feel that I may have made a bad choice. Actually, a main thing I don't like abt this postponing is that a Jul wedding is in the Chinese 6th mth, not a good auspicious period. That's why few weddings then. That's why no thread for Jul brides!! I don't think I'm very superstitious but still, this kinda of thing makes me uncomfortable.
I had thot abt waiting until end Apr to put postpone plan in action. But I worry that my hotel may not be able to give me the Jul date I wanted. Studio also may not give me the photographer and make-artist I wanted. And the SARs situation seems to get worse and I thot no pt waiting. Sigh! Still feeling troubled.....
Saw a posting under Orchard Hotel today and someone commented on the bad service, bad food ect. Do you think it's true or some competitors post it? My coordinator is Ernie, the one that was mentioned in the post.
A good fren got married there in recently. No complaints from her & hubby. I was one of her Ah Yee that day...coordination that day turn out well. Did also heard frens' fren that had their wedding at Orhard Hotel
Maybe it's individual...or perhaps things din really turn out well for that couple U mentioned.
1. Can anyone recommend any photographer? - getting marry in early May.
We were suppose to have our portrait done today. The photographer decided to chicken out last minute because I am in Healthcare- too scare of catching SARS. Now I have to worry about getting a photographer and filling up the tables.
Last week went to a wedding dinner....only 60% to 70% turn up (No healthcare related ppl). Better phone up a few day before hand to confirm nos.
Wow, so many posting. Haven't got time to login. Seems that some of you gals want to postpone the dinner. I have also received calls from friends asking whether will I postpone the dinner. Very reluctant to! Will see how the situation is. Hopefully when schools re-open next week everything will be fine, otherwise really have to postpone dinner liao.
so so sorry for being so late in responding...i been really tied up at work...now I understand what are the requisite information but the problem is I can hardly provide any details as my ROM is the actual date of getting married 2 Nov and that is the only confirmed answer for the long list ... would email u all necessary soon, hopefully within next 14 days....oh, both my FH & I are Cantonese, new home at CCK...
DK, thanks a lot again for your kind advice on the bridal shop selection. Just got out from work half way today and dropped by at Flamingo. Suping, as u mentioned, was real nice but very unfortunate that the designer (as I confirmed with Suping) didn't appear to be very friendly , may be then she was busy walking in and out of the new shop. Prices are very reasonable infact and now one more choice for me...man, never imagine the most difficult thing to get married is selecting the bridal shop...anyway, much appreciation for your help indeed...
Hi May: I'm paying $11/bottle. My friend is a restaurant mgr & he's helping me to place order. Getting 4 dozens. Corkage is $20+++. Same here, will continue with wedding because it is a hassle to postpone & invites already sent for printing.
Hi Jan: I dun intend to postpone my wedding. Spoke to my parents last night & they think I shld just go ahead. However, I did thought of postponing the honeymoon in case reach NZ got quarantine.
Hi Pausini: I like the french manicure Fave Nails did for me. They top it off with a layer of pink shimmer and it gives them a very bridal look.
Hi Shook: Wow, you have 47 pages for your album. That's alot. You are so skinny, no wonder need yr hubby to carry for you. I'm really really sorry that I can't join you this Sat as I've got a housewarming to attend. I'll try to make it for your final selection if you dun mind. Haha...yah, tell your boutique that your friends decided not to go since the place is too small to pack us in.
Hi Maya: You really postponing yr wedding? I've also been told that June or Lunar 6th mth no gd for marriage. When my FH told his mum that we wanted to get married in June, she said no because it is the middle of the year, like being split into two so no good. That's why I'm now a May bride. But, it all depends on yourself.
Hi Jazz: Hehe...I guess all of us are the same, very eager to see how our photos turn out. Initially, I tot I've to select my photos immediately. However, I was told not necessary and I can bring them back to select. They were printed on A4 size & 6 in one page, binded into a book. I just need to go back next week to confirm my selection. I'm scanning them now so that I can post it for my FH to see. He's not in S'pore again.
Hi Vin: How are you? Long time never 'hear' from you. We are waiting to see your actual day photos.
Hi May Day: Are you referring to your photo shoot when you said to do your portrait. Have you pay that photographer? How come can chicken out last minute?
Never go to that thread so don't know. Will go there and take a look later. What DK said is right, it's depend on individual. Sometimes depend on luck also. If you are lucky to have good cheft, good manager and well trained waitress/waiter, your dinner will turned out perfectly. Vice versace,your dinner will turn upside down.
I attend my friend wedding dinner last year end, service so so lah, food OK. My coordinator was Evelyn but she had been transfer to handle corporate account. A new coordinator, sunsun take over my account. Ernie...., if I'm not wrong, he is the F&B manager. I talk to him before. He was formally from Inter-Continental.
Have you sign up with OH? Last time before I signed up, I used to worry food nice or not, service good or not but after i signed up, I don't care anymore. Just bear in mind, we just can't make everybody 100% happy.
I know what you mean... my FH and I most prob will not postpone either... the thought of doing all that planning and arrangements all over again is a huge deterrent already. Besides, like yourself, my FH and I are looking forward to married life... just wanna get it over soon. I have been dating my FH for nine years already, been waiting to become a Missus for so long...so i don't think we will postpone it. As yourselves, we will most prob send out invites in two batches.
I m going to White Link @ Kaki Bt. U know how to go there? I m on leave tml. Will email u my cell phone no later
I m not skinny lar. I din count how many pages r there in my album. It is magazine style, the photos r not in full size per pg. The album + the carrier comes out to abt 5kg. I can carry it for a short distance, dun think I can carry it wif the public transport.
Have u booked your honeymoon?
It is ok dat u can't go wif me tis sat. Everyone is v busy @ tis time.
Aiyoh your photographer v bad leh. Afterall u also go there to select gowns n the make-up artist also gotta make up for u wat. How to avoid?
Do u mean u r looking for outdoor ps without indoor ps?
I am not a Dec 03 Bride, but a Oct 03 bride instead And having ps in next month
But i am curious when i see so many brides to be going to Sentosa for ps. May I know what are some of the costs that i need to bear to have ps in sentosa? What arrangement should the bridal shop should? So for those going sentosa, do we still schedule indoor ps and outdoor ps on the same day? And also 2 outdoor locations?
