Cherubies, your wedding end Jul?? still got some time to worry abt things not done...... aiyah, this wedding thing hah, quite a lot of headache. Now I still haven't make up mind where to go for honeymoon. Hoping for something short, cheap, then plan for longer more ex later part of yr..... thinking of phuket, kaoh samui, club med bintan.....hmmmm???
Thanks sandgirl72. I'm very excited. My trial will be on early sep and my photoshoot on mid sep. I like their gowns. I have actually read the comments here before selecting them. Thanks for your comments, I guess I have made the right choice.
I have actually went to Christian Creations, Vanity and J & M. But both my hubby and I love J & M's photos and no hard selling. Vanity is good too but a bit too expensive. Christian Creations too hard selling, don't like it.
Pausini: now, we have more pple to chat...opps...dont mean to say that i was sick of talking to you the past weeks...it is just with Karen and Oso back ..more lively mah...
Vin: i not shopping queen lah. nope, the earring didnt turn up. Sian... wow, yr hubby so good life..sleep until 10 am...why dont u be tai tai then?
Oso: i had roller bindsfor my bedrooms but not the living. Which i regret cause the wind is very strong at my place...and we leave the ventilation windows open so my daylight curtains are blowing like ghosts...
i paid abt $5.50 or S$5.20 per feet and it is not 100% blackout but has the UV protection so it keeps the heat from coming into the room. U can call Falcon Furnishing at 67437630. Look for Ivy.
ok.. i oso ask for Jane. Hmm.. not peeled nails off yet n don dare put plaster... my nail polish still intact, but the pain is there.. today whole day my 2nd finger zo bo.. keke.. a bit weird cos typing a bit diff.. hope flesh will heal soon..
Guess i should just do mani hor.. 2 weeks later then do pedi and mani for PS..
U r welcome... This is juz my personal opinion of J&M lor.. actually my cousin did asked me to get our bridal quote from them b4 we confirm who to take.. but guess my hubby too excited lor...
who is yr make up artist? Charmaine??
as long as both of U feel comfortable, it matters most...
Yeah i think its a good idea to do your mani first. It'll be $20 for normal and $25 for french mani. Of course if the prices never change. Now you're just like me then. Can't type with it and always find your finger pointing straight and dare not bend it right? Can understand lah. Not worry, the pain wont be that strong after 4days.
Wow..seems like you ladies almost done with the preparation. I need to settle guest list, my hair, my face, my scrub, my bulletin, caterers, mother's make up etc....aiyo...seems like never ending...I just bought my swaroski necklace and earrings during weekend....like it alot...but dunno if it's too expensive a not...cost me $70. Got my FH a white tie...so difficult to find..almost give up...
U got your caterers from where huh? Need to feed my jie-meis and relatives otherwise they faint....
Have gone thr my first fitting liao....not really too much excitement, 'coz everything is still not really fitting yet, and details r still not up yet...Hopefully, next fitting experience would be a good one....
yup 26 jul. don't worry, your options all look fantastic. just make sure that you have a relaxed and great honeymoon after all the planning. i really look forward to mine.
all will be settled soon ya.
your big day is coming so everything will be done with His help. $70 for necklace and earrings are pretty reasonable. well as long as u like it, it's money well spent. same here, i finally found white tie for my fh at tangs. singapore shopping centres don't really stock white ties...
for me, the lunch in church will be the food for my jie-mei and relatives. no caterers for home.
Do u girls find it very hard to get your fiance / husband to help with wedding plans? I have minimal duties for my hub, but he's taking FOREVER to get some simple tasks done! Eg his own guest list is not even completed!
Another one that i dread is getting my parents in law to start their plans. Like my mother in law who said her list was ready long time ago, and when i asked for her list so that i can key their names into a spreadsheet, her name list was "Ah Beng, Ah Seng, Ah Tan" etc etc. And she has no idea what their actual names are!
Sigh ... these kinda things just got to accept. Can't possibly raise my unhappiness when i told them yonks ago that i needed the complete list.
I told my MIL this too 3 months ago. She said list readi alreadi. Where where? Oso no give. Some more PIL got cheek to ask for more tables. Lucky my Ah Lau got the brains to tell them cannot. Anyway, I'm so prepared to lose $$ on PIL's end. When the day is nearer, I'll pass them empty invites and ask them to fill up themselves. Cannot fill table not my problem. Ok lah...I can be nicer, I provide them pen to write and stamps to send out.
. Jeez, I'm a horrible DIL!!! Lucky my Ah Lau is not a model son either!
Pausini: hehe...but still very quiet leh...
yep, i really lost my earring. dunno is it during oone of shopping session where i was happily trying clothes in the fitting room.
No lah, i have no plans to replace it. now wearing the small ones my MIL gave me as si dian jing. but i like the one hubby bought for me...it is bigger....
To continue w GSS:
i went for Zara sale last friday..i spent abt 3 hrs in the two outlets, happily trying clothes...but only bought 2 items.
yesterday i dropped by Mango and spent $$ again...hubby is forbiding me to shop...
next week i going to KL for business somemore...want to buy shoes...hehe
I also dunno wat theme for my wedding banquet leh cos thinking of additional cost incurred if we want to have theme..But I would like to have lots of candle..Maybe near to it will have a discussion with Agnes or the florist...See what they can arrange for me with no additional cost lor...
Karen: u must have spent alot during yr honeymoon that is why hubby nagging...hehe...
aiyo, now after marriage hubby pattern all come out liao. i hate to shop with mine...he will just stand outside the shop w a super bore expression waiting for me. gone are the days where he will go into the shop, accompany me to look ard and wait to c the clothes i have tried.
and when i c his bored expression, i also no mood to shop liao. so i rather shop alone or w friends.
And u know what is the worst..he is like these during grocery shopping at supermarket too. He will push the cart and stand in a corner and wait. I cant stand it as i like o browse and sometime i dont know what to buy ... it depends on whim...
I hate to rush to buy stuff...
if it wasnt for the weight of the stuff, i wld have gone grocery shopping alone.
any one else got this problem? SIGH...
yes, i also looking forward to meeting up...waiting for Shook and Jazz to be back...
But i dont think i want to lag my actual photos...it is too heavy.
May: I like Zara clothes i got a few tops for CNY now all cannot wear liao.
Mango clothes, i cant even wear but i must agree during mango sale, their clothes can be very cheap. Some skirt or dress from 80++ can be as cheap as 30++ only. Same i cant wear any now! *arghhh*
KL got things to buy meh? How come i also got stamp on my eyes. i never saw any leh???
Wah, u hubby really show true face liao! sound scary leh... My hubby feel out of place if he go shopping clothes with me but he still go with me. Luckily he like go shopping for grocery cos he always end up getting more stuffs than me.
I think may be he is too tired??? Next time u ask him to go and drink coffee, come and get u when u are ready. Wld that be good????
Kare: I also cant stand man who nag. really terrible, if my hubby keep nagging i will give him black face and just tell him i hate guy nagging cos they can be worse than women. Dun u girls think so.
U didnt get the pix??? i send u again later..
I don't have problem of husband with bored expression. But, I have a very zealous husband who's too interested in what I want to buy. When we were on our honeymoon, I hinted many times for him to go back to the hotel to rest while I shopped around the area. He insisted on going with me. There are times when I take a lot of time deciding, and he would shake his head. I think he just want to see for himself what a horrible shopper I am! I stopped asking him for opinions though. When he finds something too expensive, he would tell me that it's not nice! I made a mistake of listening to his opinion and tilll now, I regretted not getting the bag that I am still thinking about.
But yes, I would rather go shopping alone or with friends. I just don't like to go shopping with someone who looks on while I shop. I would feel so uneasy that I would be pressurized into not buying. Just like when you are looking at something, the Salesgirl just stand there and look at you - it's the same. So now, instead of having one person looking at me, I have 2!
You have to be kidding, right? KL have cheap clothes to buy! Everything also so cheap, not as cheap as Bangkok but still good nonetheless.
I'm not a fan of Zara clothes. I used to like Mango until everyone seems to be wearing Mango. Now my fave is Topshop. But not cheap.
Actually I hate people who nags at me I did tell husband that I know my limits and to give me some freedom where my spending is concerned. And I mean, it's my self-earned money!! Take yesterday for example, I wanted to sign up for a facial package of $1800 for 20 sessions instead of paying $113 each time. Somemore, it's paid through DBS credit card with no interests. Once he heard the $1800, his nagging started. He said he didn't understand why I need to go for facials now that I'm married, and that my skin is ok. Sigh..in the end I gave up. I would just go for each session and pay $20 more per session. Why can't I still go for facials? I'm a woman! Sometimes I just wish he would have affairs with some high-maintenance woman and knows for himself that I actually am not spending so much!
I saw yr ps... u look so lovely.. u r another oct brides for me to get envy of the figure...
Hi 1027, stressed,
me too, so stressed over the number of tables and guests list from my dad. gosh..my dad couldnt tell me how many tables he need which make me so confuse... he told me that this relative has how many family members but mayb the kids wont come.. etc.. how to est?
Somemore, he can also tell me that this relative wont come but need to give invitation card still... sigh.. does any of you have such problem too?
Hi jbride, r u looking for strappy heels? Dunno whether any gals have mentioned before oreadi...but just update again in case u need the infor.
For silver strappy heels, can go to
2) Hue @ scotts shopping (hopefully I get the name correct, the shop is @ either 3rd or 4th level)
These are some places that have the silver range of heels....
ur last statement very funny! i'm sure u would take back your words if it really happens! my hubby is ok with shopping with me and we especially love grocery shopping. remember before we r married, we would go grocery shopping and imagine that this would be how it feels like when we are married and have our own house in future! cuz my aunt does my facial,he would drive me to my aunt's place and either read newspaper while waiting for me, or go back 1st b4 coming over to pick me up when i'm done. so in this respect, think i'm quite fortunate
hey kare2711, remembered that u mentioned in a posting earlier that your new place is at bukit batok? mine is too! and i also haven't gotten my keys yet. for all we know, we could be potential neighbours!
thanks alot for your reference. will call ivy at falcon furnishing for a quotation.
Really? You also in Bukit Batok? Even if we're not neighbours, we'll still closeby!
Nope, he doesn't check my credit card bills, but we share the same credit card. Sort of. I'm the supplementary card holder. Of course, I can always use my other credit card but then, he'll somehow know where my money goes to.
