hi baby5556

My BS's giving me a pair of WG shoes, not those glam glam type, but hidden under the gown, i see no prob and wont buy another pair. Now looking around for a nice pair for EG, i have one stand-by pair (ROM) just in case can't find one i like. Normally pple will hv 2, one white/light color for WG and another diff color to match EG. Advise to get shoes tt can be wear later, esp WG. Most of my frens buy already, nvr wear again.

hi Yvonne

Tks, hehe.. think i'm a bit KS. Will call Kenneth after the next revised TOP, keeping fingers cross for earlier TOP.

Hi exciting
Wow.. u are so tall, so gd... envy.... hai.. if only i'm just 2 inches taller...

Mei Mei!!!!

I almost tot i'm the only bride on 1st Oct, scarely it's not a gd date :p Like u, actually wanted a later date but taken up so fast. But frens say it's a suitable day for me lah, look like kiddo, so must get married on Children's day.
happy.gif
Welcome!!

Hi ivory
Sometimes like tt one, u dun eat much also will put on wt. Just try our best.


hi bebe

My hubby also volunter to go jogging with me every fri. Ai yo, so paisey, he treats me like competitive runner, keep on saying "come on" " faster" then my speed is like so sloooow... pple must be laughing.. :b

It's ok to wear the same gown, maybe just hv diff hairdo for the night? For all of us, we will be wearing our WG twice, once in morning, once at banquet. Dun worry.
happy.gif
U can still go for a gown change (EG) too.

Adeline,
thought come how you MIA for a while... think most of us waiting to know wat has happened to your deposit?? try not to waste it.. like i suggested, maybe get them to provide you with other stuff like mother's evening gowns or maybe actual videpgraphy....

eternity,

I bought 2 pairs, a beaded white pair of 1.5 inches, and a silver diamante one of 2 inches... I got my silver pair at Tangs Studio costing $70+ ... think within your budget.

hi lynn/chubbyrain,
Height is tall but then weight is not so, is considering serious underweight sort lor. Not oways gd to be tall, shoe will need to get bigger size(8) too. Oways feel that the feet is too long but thin oso, so end up blisters on the toes there if wearig open toes.

Yup, my bf is an officer, will so be asking his fren to be bearer. But I thought mine will be dragging coz will be march in, sabotage by them, then go to the stage and solemisation. I wonder by then the guest should be hungry???

Kk,
thanks for your help. I will be going to Ck tang this weekend. Then maybe if I saw high heel which is nice I will post it herr
happy.gif


Forest,
Got your mail. it's an comprehensive research huh... thank you very much. So u decided which one to choose?

Eternity,

I am actually using my sis in-law wedding shoes. Hers is oso very cheap one, got it from Tangs abt 2 years back. I suggest that you check it out at Tangs where they got alot of shelves. They should have some shoes that is cheap and suitable for your gowns. My shoes is in gold colour so that it can goes with my WG and EG. For me, I dun intend to spend so much money on a pair of shoes which I will not wear so often lor...

Hope this will help you to make decision

Hi gals,

I’m back!!! Thanks for all the blessings!!!

We have a very nice & smooth running wedding. Jus wanna share wif u gals my happiness and hope all of u can have a just as nice wedding!!!

Weather was good that day… Only drizzle a bit after we had finished our morning events. My HB had a “Fear Factor” sabo. In his last sabo, he & his siong di(s) have to find the rite key to unlock the gate… My jie mei(s) put several keys into a container filled with worms. Eeeks…. Luckily they managed to find the rite one after the 3rd try…
happy.gif


Many guests complimented how much they enjoyed themselves during the dinner. We had engaged an emcee to keep them entertained. HB gave me a surprise after our Thank-You-Speech. He thanked me and presented the 1st song he had sung to me 8 years ago. A bouquet of flowers subsequently followed this. This really brought tears to my eyes…

One piece of advice to those whose wedding is not over yet. Remember to reconfirm attendance with all your guests when the date is nearing. This method manage to gain us a 95% attendance…
biggrin.gif


We will be leaving for our HM on Fri, so I will take this opportunity to wish all of March 2004 brides a very blissful & everlasting matrimony…

Hi zenn and BlueAngel,
I have my pre wedding photos in webshot.com but those are not taken by the professionals. They are taken by my friends. The ones taken by the professionals are in hard copy. They give us the proofs (200+ photos) and the album.

Hidden costs are like edge-to-edge printing, metallic finishings (not matt and not glossy). Even better! And extra number of pages. So we were not aware of all these extra costs.. So no choice have to pay another $1500 for what we thought was a $2500 package. Hiksss.. That's why in total became so expensive...

Zenn,
If you still have the floor plan, can just show it to the salesman. No need for the man to go down and take a look at your house. Cos they will only do a rough estimate only. And they will also ask questions like "Will there be false ceilings?". Cos this will determine whether you need that extra protection over the wires. Like that loorrr...

Jazzy,
I only know about Melbourne... Heee.. July is a bad time to go to Melb. Unless you like skiing and getting frozen, then you should not go to Melbourne. Out of all the cities in Australia, Melbourne is one of the places with bad weather. Extremely bad!!! Even in July, you can have the 4 seasons all in 1 day. Better go to Sydney cos the weather is better.

Why not NZ? Then can see the Lord of the Rings shooting locations. He heeeee.. My bro went there for his honeymoon. Went bungy jumping, cave-walking, etc etc. He said it was fun. BUt don't know whether the fun is because of his honeymoon, or because of the place.. HA haaa..

Hi exciting
Well, i would gladly traded in some fats for ht :p Sometimes quite sian, esp buying long pants, always need to alter 2 inches. But on the other hand, frens who are very tall like u, always complain to me they can't find long pants, end up it become 3/4 :p so the best ht would be around 165cm.

Military wedding's fun. Attended a few, definately will hv sabo, if u r worried about delay in serving food, just try and start the ceremony early. Advise u to get cordless mic so that the audience can hear the sabotage better :b

bebee
PS better not to wear the shoes for AD, esp if it's white. When u go outdoor shoot, u would dirty them.
happy.gif
Send u the link to my WG sample.
happy.gif
U can try this site to look at those western ang mo style, i got mine there. www.for-brides.com under gowns > related fashion links. Good luck!

Hubby of cos nice lah, he wants to see me slim slim tt day. And it's gd for him also, train him up. He's one funny kind, if not exercise will lose wt, so since working, he has lost easily 8kg. Envy right?? Too skinny now, me desperately trying to fatten him up, was very happy when he told me he put on 3 kg the other day. haha

Hi Mei Mei
My PS is in May, mine need to send back to TW for developing thus need lead time abt 3mths. I give a mth or two for any hiccups. Anyway, i prefer to take earlier since by then i get my hse keys, no time for PS/wedding till Sep.

Dun worry abt your body shape. U still hv 3 mths before ur PS and if u r OTR, then u just try and push ur selection later, giving urself sometime to lose wt. To all who'r trying to lose wt: Dun give up, i hv seen a number of brides losing significantly. It can be done

Wat a nice morning today, it's wed
