i think i must be a real weird one... dun really like it v much ;p if ppl offer i wun mind eating it.

hv u got any bridal studio in mind?

hi HP,

ya lor... i had the same experience... the few 'good dates' that my mum got for me were really hot!!! and i was so surprised the venues i liked were all booked even tho' it's a sundays -- i thought only saturdays were hot. geez!

do u hv to have the customary on 19th? is it one of those "auspicious dates" things? if so, then ya... postpone the banquet to 20th is a good idea

if not, u can consider hving ev thg on 20th, cos then u'll save a fair bit on photography, makeup, florist etc costs go up when it's spread over 2 days.

Wah Jamci, F&E 16~18 days in USA? But not in same city right? We thought going USA too cos USD depreciating (but now looks like going up again), but still more X then nearby...

But dun seem like we'll be saving much. Just booked our flight & accomodation to Tokyo. Will be going F&E for 9 days.
Going to be broke when we come back...

So how's the invitation distribution going for all of you? We distributed most of the invites to relatives during CNY. So now left only friends and colleagues.


New Member
Cubby : Hehe, thanks ! I'm watching the weather every day, sky's still cloudy leh... Nervous about weather and that my hubby will enjoy the photoshoot lor... Thanks...


New Member
hi gals... just didn;t log in one day and seems that I am missing so much action. hehe... so seeing you gals tomorrow... hee... it will be fun... one whole group of gals... can't wait!


New Member
Hi cat, not at the same city. I'll sure bored.
Will hop within the nearby cities like San francisco, LA & LV for 16 - 18 days. We are checking out at Chan brothers this weekend.
Hopefully we can have F&E so that we can relax more...no more waiting n morning call.


New Member

Hello ladies,

Happie New Year... Have been a really busy CNY holiday for me.

Oneeu, dont worry too much. Just relax and make sure you sui sui on friday. I'm sure weather will be fine on that day. FIL read from newspaper that it will contd to rain till chu qi (7th day of CNY) so by then it shld be quite safe... all dried up oredi

Your hubby probably just nervous. I'm sure he will enjoy it that day.

Ju, welcome. You might want to add your details onto our list.

Cawaii, my hubby oso teochew. I know that for first year, some elderly will still give us angpow (this is regardless of dialect grp cos Hokkien oso have) but his family still give ang pow for first year. Guess we will ve to follow suit

Makeup artist BS tied up with has been booked for outdoor shots for my AD. Got to top up abt $800 to engage another one. Me thinking of Leon Lim, Alicia or Eric Tan. Any brides using them?? Any comments??
I should be going Europe for HM but have not started to plan yet. Think will do it after fittings and PS.


New Member
Hi, just stumble onto this thread. Haven't been chatting for months. Didn't know there were so many June brides.

Hi Fantasy! Don't know whether you still remember me... was chatting with you on Frederick Lee....then disappear liao.

I'm now with Silver Lining and my AD is only a day before yours....


New Member
Hi Cubby,

The nailart stickers are very easy to apply...just peel them off and stick them onto ur nails...=)...then just apply a top transparent coat to protect them...and you're ready to go! BTW, some designs have been snapped up already..


New Member
Blurq & those who has sent me their details,

I have sent you the list of those who will be present for the outing and the details on where and what time to meet. Please check your email. Thanks.

hi feroy

if you want videographer for actual day, you may want to consider Moo Media, http://www.moomediaonline.com/. They do both AD photography & videography. I'd asked them for their quote, pretty standard. They're website's very cute, you might want to check it out
Never had any friends who tried their service though, so, I can't comment, sorry.

To the rest of the beautiful Oct 04 brides who are meeting tomorrow, have fun, I wish I could join you gals, sigh.

Hi fantasy

I had wanted Frederick initially but I guess I caught him on a bad day. He was too busy chatting with his staff that he ignores me when I walk in. I went to several boutiques after that, and took Silver Lining eventually because the photographer I signed up with highly recommended Jit's gowns.

Yup, I had my first fitting already. Very happy with my WG... it is more gorgeous than what Jit has drawn on paper. But unfortunately, I don't like the EG. Jit couldn't find the material I wanted so he replaced it with french lace. But I can't take french lace... make me look like mamasan
....so in the end I asked him to cut into a skirt for me and I bought my own top to go with it. Haven't had my 2nd fitting yet.... hope the EG goes fine now. Keep my fingers crossed.

My photoshoot is in early March. Taking Ivy as well... recommended by Jit. How about yours? Your photoshoot should be in March too right?

Okay... I've inserted my details into the list.

Hi cubby

Just to let u know my JP is an old lady
My MIL's teacher so may not be ideal for you...Hehe. Got to get her because she is a family friend leh. I always think having an old lady to do marriage vows is good...The JP list is very long and go by their residential areas...But you can choose anyone.

Hi onee, same here thinking of going to Europe, especially Venice, Italy. We both love the sea and the gondolas...But I feel that if want to go to Europe, should go to a few places which will need at least 10 days. Can't afford so many days...Thus, now decide on Japan for a 5-day trip there. Going F&E.

Ladies, bear in mind the weather as well. Australia and New Zealand will be having winter in June/July. Europe and Japan will be summer (highest of abt 25 degrees).

Hi cubby & onee, good luck to you both for your PS. I'll be going for mine in late Feb. Where are you going for PS? I was thinking of going for manicure before PS.


New Member
Wow, times are running short!! i give out some of my invitation to my collegues. Now was thinking if I got enough tables as I really wanted to invite so many pple!!
Regret neber ask for more tables!!

How everybody planning??


New Member
hi oraia, 20 dec is a weekday, FH prefer to have customary on weekend so that his helpers no need to take leave. tat's why will need to hold banquet on another day if cannot find venue. anyway, only make-up artist and photography need to top-up, total abt $200
did research liao..hehe...


New Member
hi secret garden~!
Happy New Year to you too~!

I simply love pineapple tarts. every place I visited, I will definately look out for pineapple tarts...

after new year must start to control diet liao, juz weighed myself, and I gained 1 kg~!!


New Member
hehe HP,

alrightys!!! you've got it all thought out already eh? excellent!!!

i hope u can find ur hotel... which ones have u got in mind that are not yet taken? *pray hard they are not taken yet!*


New Member
Happy New Year to everyone!!!! =)

Another 12 more days to go... hopefully nothing left out inadvertently :p

Hey Oceans, you can still let your co-ordinator know that there's an increase in the no. of tables. You may have confirmed that the no. of tables earlier on... meaning that that is the minimum no. of tables... but if you want more don't think it will be a prob. Do check with your co-ordinator.


New Member
My relative sides all distributed by parents. Didn't need to do anything except tie ready the invites for them.

Actually, for long distance travel, personally feel package more relaxing. Cos no need to think too much by yourself.
Saw the KenAir itineary today. Actually not bad.

The thing with F&E is that you must plan, and then you must adhere to your plan. Else you will end up go there and did not see much things in the end.

Northwest now running promo for flights to USA. Have you check it out yet? www.nwa.com/sg You can check with ChanBro, ticketing department.


New Member
