Hi Onee,
Ur..? I think u used my nick liao, ha.....!
U so lucky hoh, i wanted TC but FH said too ex and troublesome to coordinate the package, so there goes my lovely CS! Sob sob!

I saw the selling of Blush blush package in the other thread and they selling at a discount, I nv being there, so just interested cos it's a very comprehensive one. Why leh? Got big pblm there? Regarding the selling terms? Tell me tell me! I too long nv chk out on bridal package liao, time is getting tied for me liao.

Yeah, my mum wants no trouble from wedding, cos hers is also very hassle free, so she encourage me to do this.


Hi cubby
PIL are doing the banquet stuff, could be the resturant in the OCBC Centre. If not, it'll be in GCW, cos we've tentitive booking for it.

FMIL wants the date? just give her the dates when u r free and let her do all the findings. makes her happy and let urself hassle free. Just say u young couple dun knw anything. This is what i do when FH side wants a date for us, he...!

Yeah, i knw BB is ex, but other thread is selling it a a discount, so i just try my luck abt it loh. Any comments?

Silver,
If you want to use candles, then its probably better if you use like those glass candle holders otherwise the wind might just keep blowing the flame off. You can either find those with clear glass or frosted glass. If you have a certain colour theme, then you can use coloured glass even.

Lin..
How have you been? Enjoying school hols now? Weather in Aust must be nice...it's hot like hell here (literally). Will you be going back to S'pore anytime soon?

Good morning gals...

Questy : Pai-seh pai-seh, mi beri blur ah... Sorry... I always see the forum until eyes blur blur cos the 2 other threads I frequent and always full of messages, haha... Blur liao
crazy.gif


Cubby : Aiyah don't mention lah. Afterall we are here to help each other with an alternative opinion for reference / considerations mah
wink.gif
Esp. so in Asian context, the elderly will abide certain traditional values, which is good as well. We won't lose heritage over time mah...

Mi also bless to have both sets of parents who are open-minded yet bounded by asian values. Like "Si Dian Jin". MIL asked if my Mummy needs it. Mummy says it's fine cos it's a gift from MIL. Of course Sis and a few close friends has different perspectives too. Dunno whether to have or not??? Wat abt u gals?

Questy : I like Blush Blush but found it ex when I was there. Will navigate to the thread and give my cent's worth in a while okie ?

Now can't wait for my turn to meet him!! hehe... Btw, do u know what's the rough price without photography package from him?

Coz now headache, same as u, dunno which photographer to choose.. Saw that Vividshots (Monica Eng) is having promo for SB card members (but i'm not) for studio & outdoor only $900... I'm asking Jul how's her pics like since she visited them that day... But Jul seems to be missing leh... heheh..
 

yan

New Member
Jan, we verbally confirmed two packages... without PS, its $3.2k and with PS its $4k

Vividshots so cheap??? must check her out as welll. me should be meeting up with beetle@works to see their works next week, maybe should include monica as well... what abt u? who are the photographers that u have shortlisted??

wink.gif


Btw, you gals got any GOOD lobang for manicure/pendicure? Saw one at Millenia Walk yday, $22 for manicure & $32 for pendicure (if i didnt remember wrongly...hee!!!)

Ever,
Will you go do yr nails for yr ROM? I intend to take a half day leave e day before my ROM to do manicure & pendicure... haa haa!
biggrin.gif
 

yvonne

New Member
Hi Yan,
That's Good News!!! Finally make the decision on the BS... hee hee! But the package very X hoh... $3.2K wo PS!!!

Hi Ever,
We've to wait patiently for the TONG SHU, nothing we can do...

Hi Jan,
Better act fast on yr bridal search... Yan is catching up... haa haa!
 

jan

New Member
Wah.. without PS 3.2k.. budget will bust for me then!! Is yours with 3 gowns or 2?

yup yu, vividshots having promo now! u look at the main page of this SB. But must sign up to be member first.. But still quite good offer rite! Can consider! But dunno whether her package gives back negatives or not...
 

jan

New Member
Yup yup, Yvonne, hopefully after visiting silverlining and David can come to a decision soon!! hehe... Currently David is my top choice!

Hi Onee,
Of cos must get it loh, from MIL leh, he...! I'm getting the SDJ and a roast pig from them, then the rest will be simple affairs liao. Actually we r doing the traditional way with a modern twist, he...! If pig trotters r required, just get canned ones, so much more simple.
 

ever

New Member
Hi Hi!!

Congrats, yan!! finally settled the BS stuff... feel very relieved, rite??

yvonne, me will be doing mani & pedi for my ROM too!! heard from my fren that a shop at Mohd Sultan is very good... nice ambience... make you feel like tai-tai!! heehehehee.... not very exp lah.... me go search for the email and forward you....
happy.gif
me went hollywood secrets for mani/pedi before... the skills are ok, but find the services not personalised.... quite crowded, so it feels like "production line"!!!
 

ever

New Member
jan, think yan's package consists of quite a lot of stuff... so, maybe yours wouldnt be $3.2k?!??! she doing 2 or 3 mens'suits mah.... these are quite exp....

ya, Aug already.... jan, you can start bugging yr hubby to go BS shopping liao!!
 

jan

New Member
Yup ever, Aug already!! *evil laugh* can start my bridal shopping!! hehe..

Oh ya, Yan, u doing quite a no of suits & gowns rite? Hopefully will get a decent quote from david then i'll have more budget to choose photographer! hehe..
 

yan

New Member
ever, the one you mentioned is Indulge right?? its at the second floor above illusion, the ex "orange" premise..

i agree the ambience there is very nice, relaxing, rather baliness style.. the gals thare are also very friendly.. i think i got a voucher for that place lei.. its for first timer only so i can't use it.. do let me know if any one of you want that voucher... i think its a free classic mani... definitely a better place than hollywood secrets... indulge has a better ambience, just that its a bit out of the way for me... Yvonne, if you or your bf drives u there, then its ok... you bf can wait there for you too.. there's a sitting area for him..

Jan - dun get frightened away first la... for my package, i have several additional things.. I am going to have 3 gowns, and i wanted rather ex materials for them, hence think david have to factor in those cost.. and not forgetting i got 4 suits lei... and my sis dress lei..

now, i have to decide whether to take photospace package as well... it seems very attractive, but its only 8R pic and can only take back the CD rom for selected pics... dilemma... want fish, also want prawns, want big bowl and filled to the brink.... *sign*
 

jan

New Member
Yan, me also like u... Yup think photospace quite worth it... If not David only deduct 800 from it... But still very cheap, imagine for urs, so many suits and gowns and with photoshoot at 4k!! Very good deal already!! hehehe.. Or maybe can bargain with photospace, see can get more pics or get all exposures?
happy.gif
 

ever

New Member
ya, yan... the shop i was talking about is Indulge.... never been there, but it's highly recommended by my fren! that's the shop you always do your mani/pedi?? me always go diff shops.... heehehehehee.....

ya, if Photospace's pics are nice, can consider.... think more worthwhile to take his $4k package....

hi questy,
u are so lucky to have ir PIL do the banquet thingy man...it can be tough searching for one!
happy.gif

hehe me cant leave everything to PIL also cos i eans to know what will be happening and stuff so i can be assured hehe.
abt blush blush i didnt really go in the shop be4...just heard that its not cheap. if u have the budget, i suggest u look ard first then decide.
happy.gif


hi onee,
gee thks...
happy.gif
for me i think its necc to have si dian jing cos it like a gift fm ur PIL and your parents as well. prob bcos i'm teochew so MIL already said its necc....

Hi Jan,
Hee hee... im interested in e voucher! How can u pass it to me huh? Btw, wat is classic mani? What kinda of mani shd i do for my ROM? French mani OR...... ** Headache **

Don tell me go for PURPLE nails again... haa haa!

Ever, you doing what kinda of mani?

Hi Yan,
My bf also paying for the Bridal package... kee kee! But me abit heart pain for him... will help him lighten some of his burden.

Btw, hv u gals decide who pays what for marriage? And which shd be pay by guy and which shd be spilt???

U noe talking abt financial arrangement can be quite a 'SENSITIVE' issue but is unavoidable i guess.
 

yan

New Member
hi yvonne,

when do u need to do your mani?? if not that urgent, i can arrange for the voucher to be sent to your place. if u need it these few days, then i mit up with u somewhere la... but, let me locate that voucher first.. i m a very messy person, throw things everywhere... also kanna scolded by mum..
classic mani is the usual mani.. think they just came up with a nice name themselves...

light purple or lavander shades should suit your rom dress right?? i personally like french mani, cos more natural.. ask them to do french mani with colors.. its nice.. if not, can try their nails painting.. a friend did for her sis wedding, and its real nice.

hi oldies

*wave* *wave*

u gals really busy into preparations liao hor... not like me still kiao kar-ying cos date not set yet...

now i worry i stress like siow when my time comes... *shake head*
 

yan

for finances, me and bf have a joint bank account, which we will pay all expenses from there... but as he is the main contributor, being the major "shareholder", he is paying bulk of the expenditure...i happy happy transfer a few hundreds into the account, whereas he does it every month.. so pai say, have to let him pay so much..

having the bank account reduces the arguement on who pays what... just my 2 cents worth..
 

ever

New Member
yvonne, me prefer french for fingernails and maybe a dark maroon colour for my toenails.... that is, if i'm wearing white/off-white gown... think you can go for french or very light purple... you know, those kind of pastel purple... heehehehehhee... if you scared too purple, then go for french!!
happy.gif


think its very impt to discuss all financial issues.... from housing loan to wedding costs to future daily expenses.... for me & my bf, its 50%-50% for everything.... no choice, cos we're of same age mah.... so, everything half-half loh... sometimes, i pity him cos he started working much later than me.... so, i try to save and help him out loh.... but me always tell him when he "fa-cai", must pay me back!!! hahahahahahhaa....

Hi A&W,
Thanks for your suggestion! You mean those tall glass holder whereby can 'cover' the flame?

Hi Ivory,

Hello Yan , Jan,

had posted this in another thread before.

Its abt letting out my newly purchased package with Indulge.

Had went to them for mani+pedi for my ROM recently. Becos of the svs and comfortable envt, i had signed up a package with them on the spot.
But hor, now a little regret lor..
cos that place not very convenient for me leh..
Now, when feel like pampering my nails, and think of travellin so far, a little xian liao...

i had took the classic mani+pedi one.
paid $250 for 5 sessions, free 2. so $250 for 7 lah.

I must say i quite like their svs, though i had gone for the first time then only..that's y had signed on the spot...

Anyone interested let me know ok...

Gd afternoon gals...

Hi Yan,
Yes will engage a professional photographer for actual day but not high end one...

Hey congrats! Finally one thing off ur list!

Hi Jan,
Where did you get the vivdshot package from? Below is what she email me :

Studio & Outdoor Photography - $1500 (Further discount of $500 with Singaporebrides card)
- Photography services
- 22 pcs of 8X12 prints
- 1x 10X15 portrait with frame
- Soft copy of selected photos will be returned
- Up to 3 locations for outdoor.
- London cab/merc cab chaffeur for shoot.

Jan & Yan,
If you guys meeting Kelvin from Beetle@work tell him referred by Serene cos my gf is interested in the ROM package so if 3 of u gals taking might ve a better bargain (hopefully)

Hi Yvonne & Ever,
You can try NailGirl but abit far for you cos it's at westcoast. They charging meni & pedicure at $14 each. If you sign up the package it's $100 for 10 sessions. I like their foot spa hehe You can visit the website http://www.nailgirl.com.sg/

Doreamon..

Sorry...kinda missed your posting on Sunday..

Well flat wise...I really want to stay near CCK...new flats will probably be better cos its cheaper plus it comes bare so we don't have to spend extra just to tear the fixtures out. Haven't really put in much thought about the flat we want yet lah. Job wise...I'm doing International Development while Amos is doing International Relations. So think it might be easier for Amos to find a job than me just becos S'pore doesn't really do much third world development or at least i don't really know about the organizations that are involved in such development. Guess I'll have to do some research.

Lin..
Hey hey....oh boy, you have no idea how excited I am about going home man. HEhehe...now really counting down till the 30th of Aug. Arrrrggggh..so near yet feels so far away cos still have papers and exams to do. Anyway..1 more month..can lah..can tahan.
My wedding is April 2nd. Yours is on the 10th? or 9th? 9th right?? HEheheh..
Yah..the weather here...we get the extremes pretty much or maybe its due to global warming..who knows. But it's been really hot here..not enjoyable.

Why buy shoes here? Canada has good shoes meh? We haven't choose the menu yet. Have you? I thought we choose the menu during the food tasting? Dunno...We'll be meeting the hotel coordinator on the 1st of Sept..will see how then. So you got a wedding planner right? Is it a lot easier for you guys?

hi Silver,

I emailed her about it too, but perhaps the one she gave was for $900 then maybe a few things lesser??

Ok, if visit beetles will say that.. hehe.. hopefully will get better deal!!

Btw, Yan, did u further dicuss with Robin abt the package?

Yah..the glass will have to be fairly tall..to be able to block the wind..You have any idea where to get those? I can only think of Ikea...not sure where else you can find something like that at a relatively affordable price. What do you plan to do with the candle holders after the wedding?
