hi flowee,

welcome!! good to c u here too... yes, got my flat in P21 but hdb still haven't call us to sign our lease agreement yet... hee hee..probably have forgotten about us.
lol.gif


as for myself, for now will stop all sourcing till after my exams in may.
biggrin.gif


yep, keep in touch via e-mail!!!

hi to woman, beanie and miki too!!!
smile.gif


depending on your budget, then narrow down what you want. e.g full package for bridal services (everything also need), or separate package for gowns and photos, or weekend / weekday banquet. Q.E.D. for this part.

The hard part: start sourcing for the price range that fits your budget. you will be tempted by the diff boutiques and hotels (beware of hidden cost!). go thru the forum to read the comments on some of the boutiques you intend to visit (very good source for reference).

so much for now. so when's all your customary and rom?

Hi Beanie, Flowee, Miki and Cherubies!

Its good to know that all of you are trying to get your wedding plans in place.

hey 030303 is a good date. anyone going for that?
it's a monday too...so it'll be less painful on the pocket.

I have fixed my date liaow on 230303(Sunday) with FS.

flowee, don't be in hurry to sign up esp with those boutiques that seem very eager to have your business and keeps throwing in freebies just to get you signed up...I just have very bad vibes abt them...beware.

Miki, Marriot seems to have some promo going..
The first 15 couples to confirm their wedding in 2002 by 30 April will enjoy S$20 nett off each table and free flow of beer. Call Sheena or Agnes at (65) 6831 4769
[unquote] I got this at a wedding website...but since we are in Singapore brides.com....

anything email me lah

Hi Woman,

230303 looks good and its on a Sunday. My mummy is fixing the date cos she superstitious leh. So which hotel will you be throwing your dinner? I am looking at Plaza Park Royal at Beach Road. Any comments? Have you gone down to any bridal shop so far? I am going to Kai Bridal Couture. Heard of it before?

Hi Cherubies,

Thank you for your concern. In fact, I had my ROM two years ago. I have just moved in to my house this year and so now planning for the wedding next year. Like I have told woman, the date for my customary is not fix yet, got to see what my mummy say. Whwn are you having your customary. All the best for your exam.

Hi Woman,

030303 is good but then any day is good as long as you are marry the one you love rite?

230303 as wat Beanie mentioned is good too... so u decided on venue and boutique?

Hi Beanie,

Thanks! like you, actually we wanted my mum to pick a date but she took two months still no date. so we gave her a date and asked her to see if it's ok. my customary + rom + church will be in jul 2003. so date still pending with mom.

so where u staying? at least one down for you...so envy....now mugging for exams (actually haven't start yet and exams only three more weeks)

Hi Cherubies,

I am staying in Woodlands. Is always good to take one thing at a time. I am really glad now I am over with it. Last year I was so busy because of the flat! How is your flat at P21. I have a friend who just moved in. According to her, is not very accessible but lucky for her, she drives. I have yet to visit her, will try coz she juz came to my house last week.

Not to worry too much about your exam, I am sure you can juz got to work real hard this three weeks.

I hope my mummy won't take two months. Let's give her two weeks and see how. This is her first week........

Have you fix your venue and boutique? Headache rite? Panadol coming............. hee

Hi flowee

I had my flat in Woodlands last year and just moved in January this year. Have you had yours? Is a real hassle to go through all the reno and furnitures and all other nitty gritty details. But now is all over at least for the next few years.

I think u have some confusion here. I am going to Kai and not woman. I am not too sure about her. What do you think of Kai? All along I have like their gowns. Simple and elegant. i am not too sure if it is very costly, but i guess i am going for them.

As for banquet venue, still sourcing for a good one. any good recommendation?

Like you say, my date is not fix yet, so i still can c c look look around.
 

woman

New Member
wah flowee...at least 9 mths b4 meh???

I was planning to do that 7 mths before..heheh

gals, i understand what u pple are going through...had to speak to everyone before settling on a date but luckily my FH the "kan cheong" type so I can sit back and see him panic.haha

beanie, must pester all of them until they give in ...u know the saying about women and age...haha

cherubies, i picked 4seasons for the venue but not the boutique yet. any recommendations?
i've got my flat in P21 too *shake hands* but like you, i won't be moving in till i've got the whole thing over and done with.

Hi Woman and Beanies,

dropped both of you a mail. my email address is [email protected]

ya, must share share cos got kakis then can have more resources. =0)

flowee,
will c if i can be online tonite during my lesson... ha ha ha... me usually around in sb on weekends too but in the morning...

Icemilo,

welcome!!! =0)... you will be the first ... so which boutique and when's your photo shoot?? ...weekday ok, good!!! ...

wanted weekday but since no dinner, only church in aft so must be weekend or else nobody will attend(better for us
lol.gif
but parent won't allow).

Eng,
Hi! Hi! for me, i asked my mum to choose but since she took so long, we went to the web page that flowee has mentioned, picked a date and ask my mom to just check ok or not... hee hee ...

you may need to decide the months (at least 3 months - of course chinese seventh month would be out for you so only 11/12 months to choose) you may want your wedding to be in. then it's easier to narrow down to dates (weekends - even easier) . Then write down all the dates of the month you think are good. check the site. good dates - note down... then pass the dates to MIL to go check. so at least you know which one good and which one can do...

hope this helps...

tata,
cherubies

Hi Flowee,

I drop u a mail too.

I am looking at about 20 tables. Have come to know about Plaza Park Royal at Beach Road through my cousin. She had hers there and told me is quite affordable. What do you think? So far I have only this much. Care to share your findings with me?

Which boutique are you signing up with?

I will be trying out the website that you have mentioned to eng.

Be happy, I am sure you will find your love nest soon. Keep me posted.

Icemilo, welcome to our thread. Have read your email. How is Seletar Broadway. What kind of package are they offering you? Wow, you have also confirmed your banquet venue. So envious, lesser to worry. How is Pan Pac's offer? Have you heard of Plaza Park Royal at Beach Road? Comment?

Cherubies and woman,

I got your emails, will reply you via email.
