dun be too upset. jus take tis as a warm up for the start of being in their family. You knw wat.. I fight from last Nov till last wk, almost break off... bcos of alot of issues abt wedding and his attitude. End of the day, I found out that, well, if I can ans to myself tat is the best, then it is gd enuf.. the rest i reali dun wan to care. Stay cool and keep things aside for a while. Once you cool down liao then u discuss with him how to go abt doing etting thgs up and running. If need to change date or watever, jus go ahead. I can understd how disappted it is.. jus remember u have us to hear u out... cheers... choose to pass ur day happily.. dun let it affect u too much
i agree with sk2. it's very common to serve red wine at weddings now...may not seem "nice" if your guests ask for wine but dun have.
do u mean it is illegal according to the law to have customary? i find it strange cos the customary is essentially just a gathering of family and relatives....is that considered breaking the law also????
does BDS give edited footage of the entire day's events? can give me the url for BDS? how much is their package that u intend to sign up?
quite a nice chap i think. but the price he gave me is earlier one, now increase on website liao . but he says he will still honor the old price.
his cannot be said as impressive, but the money worth for the works i think. his is overall rated good.
so far i find wedding pararazzi and moomedia very good, but too ex. though BDS is not as good as theirs, he is very receptive to what we need. i told him i want spontanous and fun type, he said he will arrange another meeting to show me another style. the style he showed me earlier one was more romantic.
his menu selection beats inspire, natural shot. very nice, and he take a segment called "wishes" that means your friends willl congrats you etc will be captured cos they will speak to the videographer directly, think it is sweet.
just like weddding pararazi, they take the couple for an interview after the whole thing, but the 1k is only for 8 hours and overrun is ex.
i think BDS is opened up for comments and they will try to accomodate our needs.
unlike mabel lee. she said no to outdoor shooting after 10am, but gosh, who can be sure i will be ready for outdoor shoot before 10am right??? dont really like the way she puts it. sorry just personal feeling.
dear all.. i haven decided on the dates for AD.But i hope it falls on Sept 05.Still pending for the date as haven found some1 to help see auspicious date.I went 2 temples and the pple do not wan 2 help to see any dates for this year *SIGH* i nvr do anything for my AD yet.Do you all think there's sufficient time to prepare after i decide on the banquet?
If you want it to be sept 05, and u haven find a banquet place, it will be very hard for u to find. So be fast. Anyway u can get a relative who noes how to read tong shu to check for u. As long as it's a date good for wedding, zodiac din clash with u, ur hubby, ur parents and in laws..shld be fine!

i'm getting someone to see the dates this wkend hopefully can settle a date & i can prepare the wedding.but i still find it quite troublesome.
plan dates from sept to next year mar.a bit KS.. i got many friends getting married this year...but alot dun wan this year because of the "blind" year...blah blah... i dun really believe..
so glad to find this thread that i can ask for some help if i need it anytime..
thank u all first..
My designer & MUA will be Sammi, as for photographer, I want to take Vincent too but have yet to confirm with WL. My PS mostly probably in June.Hmm........may I know how much $$ you need to top up for Bintan Outdr PS?
Nah....haben really tot of my gowns' design, just started my dieting project
thks for the updates!u r right, YC only opens at 12pm, my appt is 1pm, so i really hv to cross my fingers...if ur 1st fitting is before mine, can u tell u how long did u take so that i can gage my time accordingly, my WG is OTR, i do not hv any EG for my package as I will be renting a kua elsewhere as my EG, i feel that the designs of kuas in YC are limited so opt out the EG for my package..thks!thks!
LUCKY U!!! u know sammi is v v popular n heard alot of gd comments bout her make up.. so lucky of u to hav gotten her as ur MUA! I initially requested for sammi to do my make-up but shes not available on my AD.. so sad!
my ps wil tentatively b in june too.. i dunno if its ok to state e price top up in e thread.. mind if i pm u instead? anyway, i opt out for their AD photography in xchange for e bintan trip so not much actually.. u interested in going too?
wow, ur diet plan sounds like a big project! hehehe... i also wanna start but stil in e procrastinating mode! wats ur diet plan?
Aiyoh..its already proven wrong la! Anyway my zodiac sign say its a good year for me to get married tis year....so is my hubby!
Yes im on diet...on pills in fact. Trying to lose 7kgs for 3 mths..cos PS in May..I hope lor. Crossing fingers.
No worries, feel free to 'bomb' us..all ladies here are well prepared to answer u!
Yupz, read from the WL thread that she is very good.
PM me please, eager to noe how much.
. I be using their AD photography for 2 days cos my dinner is on 20th Nov. I m interested to go there too but not confirm yet cos I didnt want to spend too much $$ on my bridal package.
Hmm.......super major "dieting" project
hmm.. i never question abt the payment scheme leh.. i just guai guai pay wat i need to cos i figure an established studio like CL wont be into any monkey business.. so u alr booked john to do ur AD for u?
just a suggestion, why dont u place an extra seat at the tables with a muslim so you dont have to 'waste' any persons' food? that's wat im thinking of doing.. table shd be big enough for 1 more.
yah.. 100% is a lot.. but also my little ploy to get my fiance to save up.. otherwise he's such a lousy saver..
i hope not too but must be prepared for my FMIL's side!!
oh dear.. u going tro so much.. *pat pat* think planning for a wedding's really not easy. my fiance once said it's like 2 pple trying to pls 4 pple. i went tro quite a bit of it with our parents too.. esp the FMIL part.. but i guess this' where u n ur fiance got to stand strong together. try to close both eyes over issues that u got no way of winning - even if u get ur way, they'll be unhappy - so lose-lose situation. best is to overlook them n conc on the things that bring u joy!!! like planning the prog, designing ur gown, planning for PS, honeymoon.. there're a zillion thgs tt u still have control over!! it's YOUR wedding gal, dont let anythg or anyone spoil it for u.. n yes! uve still got us.. *hugz*
as for the wine thg, has any of ur relatives done a no-wine wedding before? if have then u just follow lor
if not then maybe u can limit the no of bottles served, meaning u tell the management beforehand that once that no of bottles u bought have been served, then dont open anymore. i'll be doing that for my wedding.. else my fh's colleagues are gonna fin all my wine!! hehe.. air force pple la..
my coord told me a good gauge is 1.5 bottles per table. but u can alwas limit it to 1 bottle per table. plus if u get corkage waiver, can buy a good-enough wine outside for abt 15bucks.
wow! i saw it on the ad in Today.. looks very nice! i think i might pop by the show at ngee ann city this sat.. will get it there.. anyone going?? er winnie, worth it or not ah?? it's 8bucks leh *faint*
did u top up for their AD photography? cos i know their Ad foto in e package is using conventional camera.. if u r using digital, need to top up some more..
yah, i also trying to control my budget on e bridal package.. don intend to top up some more pix but worried i wil succumb to temptation!! hehehe... so urs wil b on 2 seperate days huh? do u need to top some more for e gowns since u wil b renting it for another xtra day?
Nope, I didnt top up any for the AD photography. Hee that time me & FH jus sit there blur blur & sign up the package didnt really ask for anything
Yupz, will be on 2 days thingy
For the gown wise they didnt mentioned anything, but I must top up $$ for both day make-up.
Nah.........nothing secretive, been popping pills lately, didnt really excerise much except shopping, legs exercise
zoe,u r right..scaly nxt year newspaper say not good year...again how..i oso dun care.. as long i can find suitable banquet and dates can liao.i tink i am really slow.i nvr bother to see those bridal magazines too.dunno wad gown design i like too.juz wanna ask,hw much $ u save aside juz for wedding?
