Hi ever,

Thanks! I got it! Guess the email is tiny enoug to slip thru the net *hee* I think 17k for your bridal shop is quite cheap. And 35 pages quite thick already right? We kind of like the mag style too. Must prepare to top up *sigh*

Hi Yvonne,

The bridal shops make money from getting pple to top up for additional photos. I think that's where the profit margin is. No choice lor, if we like the photos, then gotta add budget. But better than the photos turning out ugly, wanna top up also cannot! Heard that's what happened to some couples.

Hi ShinChan,

I rebonded my hair 2 mths before my ROM. Luckily the makeup artist din complain that it's hard to style the hair.

For me, I just went to the Geomancer and asked him to pick the best dates as long as it's not the 1st,3rd, 4th, 6th, 7th lunar mth. So happen that the best date is in March among all the 4 dates that he picked for us. My geomancer same same as binbin's 2nd geomancer

Hi bin bin,
Err.. can't really remember but it's you having ROM n makan there.

Hi doreamon,
Wow so cheap? But that's a industrial park n not florist shop rite?

Hi forest,
Yes $54 is for one branch. If you want to access all 3 branches I think it's $62. Promo till end of the mth. Which co are you in? I check out for you re the corporate rate.

Hi marigold....welcome welcome! good to always hear from more ppl!

As for the seating arrangements...becos the groom's side didn't do a proper seating arrangement for relatives...so it was quite a mess...so no matter wat, must have the seating arrangements of everyone....

Also, on the VIP table..it will be good if both side's parents are assigned seats...but some ppl have 2 tables for VIP...but my friend only had 1 VIP table....so who to sit with who is important to sort it out! I tik i will prefer 2 tables..one is my parents side and the other one is my in-law side...tik it will be more comfortable for both parties..and of cos bride n groom should sit with groom's family!

ok...that's it for today...got quite a bit of stuff to do before going back to aussieland!

Hi Silver,

I think they have their florist shop there. I have not been to see it yet but will pop by after Aug. I believe they are belong to those who have their shop set up in a JTC building.

Anyway, the lady Joy was very nice and hopefully the bouquet will turn out as nice.

Hihi...

Ever,
Actually true lor if it's too simple might as well get OTR fm J&M. Save $$$ somemore. So far you ve any design you like?

Yvonne,
I am considering wearing Kua for tea ceremony. Yes will be wearing kua & casual for PS and I like B&W photos!

Oh ok, looks like I must try KB also hehe. Went for body balance today n first orentiation to teach how to use the machines...

Jul,
No need whole album B&W lah. Mixture will be nice.

Gals, check with you is there any diff btw mag n montage style? [email protected] is charge $1800 for outdoor & studio n it 20 pages (40 over pics) of 15R collage album and CDROM of all exposure. I quite like his artwork, thinking of whether to switch to him or should I stay put wif yc....

Hi Binbin

I go to California Fitness. Quite a steal, cos got sauna and steambath. Since I very free now during the day, I try to utilise my membership by going during the day. Not many pple there, so can enjoy myself thoroughly without having to queue for bathrooms!

My hair doesn't grow so fast. So very heartpain when the stylist cut my hair so much! Was tinking of not cutting my hair now till Oct (photoshoot), since I just cut and highlighted my hair.

These few days, when I go to the gym, I always put hair treatment cream before I go into the sauna and steambath. Tink it does help soften my hair. It's like a hair treatment in salons! Kill 2 birds with 1 stone! Heeeee....
happy.gif


I'm thinking of shortlisting some cake shops for guo da li. Any cake shops to recommend?

wooo! the thread is so busy today!!

keann..i would prefer one table...so that all can have chance to interact :p plus i would love to still sit with my own parents! anyway it's personal preference hor......

Hi silver,

Yeah, I guess if the whole album is B&W, old relatives will make noise. So add some colour to humour them a bit.

I think mag style is those with small & large photos, overlapping a bit, some are a few small photos in one page, etc. But collage will be many many small photos piled together in one page. I think lah.. *hee*

[email protected] is charging 1.8k for 20 pgs of collages? Quite cheap right? But how come 40 over photos on 20 pages? Supposed to have more right?

Zao An Ladies,
Very quiet yday...... Is mid-week again!!!

Hi Silver,
Your BS package doesn't incl photographer? If not, why need to engage outside one??? If you change to outside photographer, what happen to yr actual package??? Deduct or refund the money???
uhoh.gif


Hi Jul,
Yeah me very confused between journalist and montage??? Can any1 lighten us....

I saw this photoframe when im at whitelink, is using lots of different photos like jig saw puzzle overlap/patch together one (i thk tht is call montage)? Looks very NICE not sure how much to do that pc?

Hi Yvonne,

I'm working this Sat, not mid-week for me yet! *sob*

I think the one u saw at WL is called collage. It has many photos on it right? I'm also not sure how much it costs to do that.
 

jas

New Member
Binbin, don't worry about the hotness of the steambath. For me, I feel tat the steambath is so shiok.... provided it's not so crowded! I enjoy my hair treatment inside. One thing to note though, clip up your hair after you put the treatment. Or else your back would have small pimples appearing! Tat's wat happened to me when I first started my steambath.... sua gu mah....
happy.gif


My bf always tells me tat I need longer hair to look more feminine. But he doesn't know tat longer hair needs more maintenance, as my hair splits easily! Always envy his soft hair...

Soupie..

Yah man...I know exactly what you mean man. Starting since Jan till now..I already bought about 8-10 bridal mags. Kind of stopped already cos after awhile, the gown ads just get repeated in any other mags..so wasted quite a bit of money on that already. Plus after looking through all the pics, I just become more confused. I still can't decide if I want the real A-line type or the slightly fuller A-line skirt. What material? Duchess satin? Lace? Silk Organza? BLUR man!

Forest..
Paper finish liao..but exams are back!! Aarrgh! Almost there...almost there..."find a happy place! find a happy place!"

Anyone know what I need to prepare for a church wedding? Do i need seating arrangement for the guest or can I can have free seating except for our immediate families?

Regarding catering, some of my friends told me to cater for 75% of invite cards sent out, a few said its better to cater extra. My worries are not enuf food or lots of left over... What should I do?

hi soupie,
me have a whole rack of bridal mags too. Even when i've confirmed my EG and WG, i still bought. In the end, i went back to my designer with some modifications...think she's quite "frustrated" with me and commented jokingly that she doesn't want to see me again...in case i changed my mind...hahahah

hi pebbles!!!! got yr sms. thanks a mil! nope...haven been house hunting...my FH is extremely bz...and i also very sian to go house hunting...but then i've been to a lot of showflats with my colleagues. The latest HDB showflats at woodlands is quite nice leh....got balinese theme...
if i still have not got my house after wedding, then most prob i will commute between my parents and PIL's place lor.

hi forest, u can custom make yr jewellery at fairy's inc. think it's about $300 to $400 difference per jewellery piece. The quality of diamonds is also better in Fairy's inc as compared to other jewellery shop.

hi cin_p,
they say about 3 months lor...i'm going for the photoshoot in mid-Sept instead...
how? My FH is grumbling about the ballooning wedding expenses...Does yours grumble too? I think guys dun appreciate the fact that wedding is once in a lifetime...it's creating a lot of unhappiness leh...;-(
sometimes i feel that i'm the one who's doing everything...quite sian already...Does any1 feels the same way too? haiz...

Hi marigold,

u don't need seating arrangement for guests. Only the front few pews for your family and perhaps ministers/helpers.

Catering... it really depends on the est. no. of pp u inviting and will come. Since church weddin can invite more pp....usually pp cater for 150 - 250 pp. But the common amt. is for 200pp. It really depends if yr weddin is small or big.

May i know which caterer u hav in mind? I have a friend who juz have their wedding in May. Church wedding he got Stamford (joint with Select food) Catering. Their deco is quite nice.

Hi Evon,
Welcome to JW st. 61!

Do join us on that thread when you're free. Lotsa helpful souls there. So where did you get your ROM dress?

Hi oscar,
Yes, you can. That's a tentative booking. They usually will hold up to 14days for you. But if your date is a long time to go, then they may be able to hold longer. They'll then call you to make a decision when someone else wants to book that same date.

Hi Sagi,

Yan actually took 2 group photos for us but i thk she dun hv time to download yet. We are waiting very patiently here... hee hee!

Wow... so nice go bintan! Which resort u were be staying???

When is our next outing??? Hmm... not sure leh???

One of my ex-colleague just got her 5 rooms sembawang flat in the latest WIS. Her queue no. 21 and got her 2nd choice! Only $195K at 8th floor, very CHEAP rite!!! Too bad i dun really like tht area but is definitely a CHEAP deal! While another of my ex-colleague got her 5 rooms Punggol flat at $227K... Hmm... when will be my turn...!!!

Hi poox,

nope, i havn't confirm caterin yet... only cuz i juz went for friend's wedding, so got impression of that caterer.

I shd be confirmin end of this yr. ;0)
 

jul

New Member
Hi Yvonne,

Is the Sembawang flat std / premium? Bcoz the price depends on whether the flooring & tiles are done up. If you are short of cash like me, it's good to go for premium flat coz the flooring & tiles will be paid with CPF.

And of course the higher floors command a higher price too.

Have you decided whether to go for SK & PG area? Got go to the area office & look out for white tent? *hee*

Hi Trixie,

I will join the thread real soon..cos going to take the keys which means reno going to start real soon too.. Got my ROM dress from GHA, it's included in my bridal package.

Hi Jul,

Haa haa... ok ok, go look out for white tent! But usually where they will built the white tent at? Near MRT st or just at a big plot of land? Must ask my friend who stays at Punggol to keep a look out for me... hee hee!
wink.gif


I will go for Punggol 1st then Sengkang 2nd... cos got a couple of friends staying ard there! So are you, Ever & Jan...hee hee! Moreover, is nearer to our place which is in hougang now! So PRAY that I can get a unit at these area!

I thk my ex-colleague's flat is a 5 rooms standard one!
 

jul

New Member
Hi Yvonne,

For SK, the white tent will be at the area office at Rivervale Mall / Plaza. Forgot whether it's the Mall or the Plaza, but it's the one with wet market & no aircon.

For PG, not sure, maybe also at the town centre.

So bored. Many things to do, but no mood. *sigh* Must go look for boss now, wish me luck!

Garfield/Poox,

Not sure which caterer I'll be using. My BF's mum wants to use her caterer. Dont wish to argue/clash with her, so leave it to her. Told my bf as long as there's halal food, I'm fine.

OLPS can only accommodate 180max and I planned to utilize the space.

Garfield,
How's Stamford's food? What are the prices like? What deco do u mean? Church hall whereby I'm holding the service? Or the place for makan? I intend to use the church canteen for lunch reception.
