I never been there before so I am not very sure, especially spain. some people told me Italy more on arts and buildings.. can be quite boring.. but i thought it would be nice to see Rome.. their lifestyle used to be very grand. for spain, I no idea at all.. but it seemed unique.

hi chanol and winnie,

just to share my thots abt CM... met up with PG and VG today.... alex is a nice person and he's willing to let me change the ROM video shoot to a 1.5hr shoot when i'm having my PS... i think he's very accomodating and seems like a nice guy to work with.... his VG comes with chapter selection and the MTV is very nicely done as well.... ask alex to send u the password to his samples online. he charges a flat rate of $100 if makeup before 6am on AD and every extra hr $50. he also agreed to give me a copy of the mtv in VCD format, in addition to the DVD copy.
as for the PG, he's also an experienced guy as he showed me photos he took for models, products and even Tanya Chua.... but somehow i prefer the Beetles @ work PG compared to his....

tomolo i'm going to beetles open house.... will be checking out the PG again.... if all goes well, most likely will sign up beetles for PG and CM for VG....

send me a mail ([email protected]) if any of u wants to sign up the same PG/VG... then we can bargain together... maybe for more hours or more photos

Hi Furry

So sorry for the late reply, I was in Bintan the past five days for a photoshoot.

Yes I am catholic as well...
I will check with them tomorrow... hehe... two pairs of friends and one cousin. Will let you know okies?

EE (Engaged Encounter) is the weekend course MPC (Marriage Preparation Course) is the six week course. ME (Marriage Encounter) is for married couples for more than five years its a post marriage course. Furry I think you were referring to MPC rather than ME yah? coz unmarried couples like us wouldnt be allowed to attend ME

yo milk welcome...

yo zoe/jeannie... if u using fresh flowers are they gog to use it for the day or nite only... cos fresh flowers can keep long and soon will turn colour... so ends up not nice one leh...

maybe can ask ppl who do wrist corsages lor.. fake flowers... but think got to spend abit of $$ lah...


New Member
I like both Italy and Spain. Watched Liu Xin Hua Yuan and saw Spain's scenery is romantic! Are the above packages what u aiming from Chan Brothers? I may go to the Chan Brother's fair on sun to take a look too. hehe

Wah u take ur shoots already...looking forward to mine, but I had been quite busy and sleep at least 1am nitely leh.....sigh!

Cookie's gal,
Last time u went USA for F&E issit? What are the things that are really worth to buy there ah? I know Timberland, guess etc are very cheap there.

If u book ur tour on 22 June, there are still slight chance especially those packages that need min number of pax to go. However, i believe quite difficult coz may not be able to get the air ticket.


New Member

cu2nite, where do u intend to source for the shoes? I also haven't tot of that yet...

btw weeks prior to PS, do u discuss with your MU the colour and style of your hair? My hair now is permed and coloured, dunno wat i shld do with it. Cos if i have straightened it, can still have more variety. What do u think??

since booking my BS and banquet, i had been idle for the last 2-3 mths. realised that it's 6 mths to AD.....need to gear up liao....


New Member
Hi Wendy,
i really like the idea, but since this can be settled pretty late, so would still keep my options open and all..;)

gng to look at the layout not sure how long more den i can collect my album.....but maybe i will try to get back all my rejected fotos (i m entitled to get all my sample fotos back)


New Member
Hi Jtan
hahah.... ya lor... maybe if all of us can meet at Botanic garden and have a bridal glamour... Hee Hee

Hi cu2nite,
yeah, I did enjoy myself...Dun worry about your BS la.. Venus is very famous...they sure do good work. Most important, tell them what you want..
I did alot of research, showing them the type of posing i want, the makeup, the hairstyle....

Hi Tam
I did discuss with my MUA what type of MU i wanted.. Natural one, I show the hairstyle i wanted and asked if I am suitable anot..She did not do a trial for me but I think overall outcome, i really like alot...
Discuss with your MUA if you need to get your hair straight... For me, i wanted my casual with straight hair then PS gown in ceramic perm type.

Discuss with them the sequence of changing gown with image.. I start with my casual 1st coz i wanted my hair straight.. once hair is set, it is difficult to put back to straight for photos liao..
... communication is important...

Especially for gals who take up JB package.. in case we turn into Xiao Tian Tian...

Colour wise, my MUA advise me to dye or highlight it...will look nicer and natural... for groom, my hubby did dye his hair but not too bright...

Hi Jtan
My casual are easy, I dig out my sarong skirt and just buy a white tube top.. Hubby's shirt, in order to match my skirt, we shop almost the whole Far East plaza, Wisa and Taka.... Wa lau.. almost give up...in the end, we finally found one at Wisma...not ex... at $29.90... hee hee....
I find that not necessary must be the same type of clothing , as long as it matches the colour etc...


New Member
yo cu... why so sad... why no confidence with venus hur... dun worry lah... juz tell them wat u 1 lor and ask them to follow ur instruction lah... aiyo... no worry lah... some of my friend also plump plump with arms but they sure know how to do it to make it slim slim one lah...

yo tambourina... wow so many shopping today hur... kekeke

Hi Sharlene

Not bad. We saw quite a few accessories, and each other's lu shan zhen mian mu hehe
I saw a tiara I like, and a hair accessory that can also double as a tiara. But unfortunately I cant decide btw the two leh
I think Genie more or less decided on the hair accessory liao, right Genie

By the way, I have sent you a PM

New Member
Hi Hi Wendy,

I hope you'll have a pleasant experience with your BS

I am not going for my HM this year because we have plans to go to Europe and I want to go during Spring time when it's not too cold and there are more things to see.. especially tulips in Holland!


New Member

New Member
Hi Daphne,

Have you asked him for quotation yet? Mine is the digital photographty package..I did not shortlist any photographers at all. I saw my frd photos & the outcome of their photos are beautiful.
You better check with him whether he is still available or not? He is popular too


New Member
hmm seems nothing to prepare except waiting for the date of PS. When the date is getting nearer around Sept, one will be much more busier.


New Member
i not too sure coz never been there before,,i got the itinerary from a few tour agency.. beside barcelona, they also go to Valencia, Granada, Seville, Caceres, Salamanca, Toledo & Madrid. I was looking at a travel guide and saw this Alhambra palace at Granada.. very nice.. very mysterious kinda feeling.. now comparing and deciding which tour package to take up... u wanna a copy of them? i can scan and email to you.

ur F&E is my ideal HM leh... switzerland and spain.... too bad couldn't find any package of this..

thanks! i haven't found any yet... but high chance might do it ourselves instead... to save the money... think it cost ard $250 to $500. my contractor already clean the house for me a few times... the last one i heard he brought his maid and wife to clean for us coz we complained very dusty... and we also cleaned up once ourselves liao...

Hello everyone, I have become a Mrs overnight (my rom was yesterday). Everything went really well yesterday. The meeting of parents go very well too. Our JP is very good, he did a chinese explanation and then conduct the official one in english. Everyone was very touched when we exchanged our personal vows, I mumble through cuz I was too touched by my other half's vows.

Jen, it will be your turn next sat, hope you enjoy the whole process. Look foward to hearing yours.
