ya loh...just let ur mil move in to ur FH room n sleep there if not no place to sleep...kekeke....
as what jelly mention, just change to a new bed sheet....or alternatively is to shift the bed a little to off position...then when AC, just shift the bed back to the place u all wan to place....
mehmeh...i also ask my hubby to sleep on the bed after AC.....after AD he is going to sleep also mah...so i see no diff whether to sleep now or later...
prob wil go look for the foot pedal...but still wondering how it actually helps...hmm......me really so sua gu....hehe
my bro mention the hotel to me b4, i cant remember hmm......not sure if its near the passenger off area....but i know last yr there is one case right....its definitely not tat one....his fren's one happen 2-3 years back.
Have finally finalised and signed with Silhouette!! What a load off my mind!!! Have also at the same time sat down with Heath to discuss about the WG (off-white, embroidery, design, etc etc). Showed him quite a few pictures of the WGs that i liked, so that he had a better idea of what i liked. He will be drawing up the designs and will be meeting him again after i come back from my biz trip next week.
Had such a fun time!! And, such a load off my mind because i have finally concluded on my BS and i have a better idea what my WG will look like. Whew!!!
Supposed to confirm design by end April so that they can start making the WG. Heath has also asked me to start thinking about my EG.
I finally gotten my key from the ex-owner.
Feel bit sad to see the hse bare with rubbish not cleared by the ex-owner as she said no time to clear much. She is leaving S'pore for good, going back to China. Dun come back again!!!
So hubby and I gonna clear all rubbish this wkend.
come come...i join in to make some noise.. hahahahah..pc down + I left my office, got to wait till monday then start work.. i did tell my new employer that i'm getting married in jan.. so tat it will be fair to them...at least they will be prepared that i'm taking leave...
for gold I'm oso an idiot.. hehehe..will see and so long as like it and within budget i'm ok...
my fitting still no good, guess me n my fh decided to go with tc for the gowns and take the "nt worth" package from my bs for the rest of the stuff... they only wan to deduct $500 for me.. jus buy a lesson...=( hopefully tc can do a gd job..
Would appreciate someone can just tell me what wed preparation should be done. My venue & BS had been finalize. Any good photographer & videographer to recomend or rather which one are you gals using.
wah....now discussion on AC.....hmmm....just to contribute...
Me oredi living in my lovenest for coming a yr....so my mum told me that for AC, just need a Zhang3 Bei4 who have blissful marriage ( my mum wud do it) to change new bedsheets the day b4 AD. reason for the day b4 is coz we have to still slp mah....but eve of AD I wud being staying at my parent's place liao...but hubby wud have to spend the night in our lovenest....but he oso can't slp on that bed after AC done, so gotta either slp on sofa or on tilam....anyway,just a night, he bo bian lor....have to follow....
I oso found out that got to place red-dates, melon seeds, lian zi, etc on the bed after AC, and the next day got to display ur SDJ on the bed to show that u marry of well....me not likely to do all this, kipping my fingers crossed that my mum wun insists though....my MIL very easy, do or dun do, doesn't bother her....some customs say even have to put sewing kit....depends on how rigid ur folks are lor....
lucky for me, no mention of spitton and face basin....but must have chuang tou deng....(bedside lamps)....
thought that the process of wedding planning is fun and exciting....but as the date draws nearer.....after all the fun part finalise (gowns, MUA etc) now comes the crunch of the customs part really headache....
I actually went to buy a red unbrella and a fan coz was told by some1 that I wud need to be sheltered by a red unbrella when I chu jia, and b4 I get into the car must throw a fan out....then found out my mum say no need.....haiz.....imagine I carry that red umbrella all the way from HK.....so stoopid....
now problem is i'm marrying a teochew, and my mum oso teochew ( though i'm hainanese),my mum insist that my hubby have to pick me up b4 dawn. really can die.....imagine having to start shu tou and make-up like say at 3am???????? even my hubby oso cannot tahan, coz he say we wud be loitering along the streets coz his family wud not be up so early....most of them have young children, so not ez to get them to be at IL's place for tea ceremony so early oso... still trying to work out this part lor....thk if have to start so early, I can only draw 1 conclusion: I wud be a panda bride, and I would probably K.O on my own wedding nite.....
rgdg the AP box thinggy, me thk the bigger the better, but sits betw 2 helpers at the reception table, not on the recept table.....big difficult to snatch and run away....then put a reliable person (likely some1 at the recept table) in charge. This person wud jaga the AP box and then return to the suite with u after the 1st march in, then can empty all the APs from the box and put into the safe in the suite. Alternatively, if the carpark not far, can lock the whole AP box in the boot. We did that for 1 of my gf's wedding at Chijmes (coz car parked just right outside). Big Big AP box oso can serve another purpose, for guests to drop in the APs instead of passing it to parents, grandparents etc....for my case, this is very crucial!!
and helpers can help to identify by writing the names on the back of the APs as they assign the guest to their tables....so u noe who give how much.....rather than parents end up with super bulging pockets with APs and dunno who give wat....
that's my personal opinion lah....keke....
I cannot remember what is the name of the cantonese song already..but the bride march-in in her CS.. the song kinda suits the ambience and what she is wearing..For my march in , i will be getting someone to play on the piano...have not decided on my songs yet..
i will also try to hand deliver to my friends..even if it is by posting, i will try to give them a call first to inform..as for my ex cols..most prob will pass to one of them and ask them to distribute..
morning ladies.. was very quiet yesterday as i brought my kids out for competition.. feeling super tired today.. =)
some of my colleagues noe i'm getting married... my bosses noe also.. hee.. coz last year i had to take leave for hdb meeting.. but in the end din select a flat.. in fact, my VP was like telling some of my colleagues i already ROM just haven't had customary and my P thot i went to malaysia last dec to get married.. hahah
hi Maiden, me have not thought abt outfits yet thou. Dun think i am wearing any couple outfit as of now.
What abt Marina south for the lallang and greens maybe can try Botanical gardens or West Coast.
Funky background would have to be indoors i think but no idea where. Will look out for you. Maybe can try the Hangout Hotel at Mt Emily. Nice place.
Hi barley, sorry cannot help on the extensions. Have not done it before.
i am not sure when spotlight is closing? but its gonna be pretty soon (within this month??)..yups i am giving away mini pots of honey with corny taglines like "will you bee mine" or " bee my honey" (will think of 10 so each person at each table will get a different one)..so need the ribbons to tie the taglines to the jar? prob will try to arrange for sunflowers or other honey-hued flowers for the centrepieces and reception decor for the banquet so that the whole theme will gel together? or geberras also can i think..heh..
hi hi sierra..
nice to hear from u... : ( thks for the concern, i really appreciate it, currently my co-ordinator is on leave & we spoke to her colleague yest & booked on the new date we r having the change to as it's still available...sigh, i feel that we both are reallt "tormented" over this date change issue...we r keeping my fingers crossed for now..sigh..
hi hi mehmeh..
thks for ur concern, it's very sweet of u..it's really a long story for this date change thingy..hopefully this can be the final change of dates..or else, i guess the hotel might really consider returning us the deposit willingly..
hi hi janice..
i didnt know there's still another case last yr, oh my, this is not very gd thou...hope it's not from the same hotel for the 2 cases...
hi hi gan..
thks for sharing with us on the photos, u look very beautiful in the gown, i think it suits u nicely..very sweet too..is the gown white or peach color or is it the lighting that make the diff effects?i like the back view effect..i guess when u add in the crystals/beads, it will be even nicer..so ur theme is garden theme?
hi hi ww..
thks for sharing with us ur AC experience at ur lovenest..u got the red umbrella frm hkg?do u have any pictures to show me on the red umbrella?i m very curious abt it..seems to be very cool...
hi hi aleixis..
gladt that u have settled ur BS arrangement..at least u can now concentrate on other wedding preps..so u will be having the same BS as bubbles..
hi hi renee..
why is the previous owner so irresponsible one..since in this case that she's leaving spore, it showed that she has taken all the stuff she needs from the house & if from now on, i dun think u shd let her come back to "collect her outstanding stuff"..
hi hi bubbles..
hey, u hv a very sweet idea..i guess it also symbolise u both will be "tian-tian-mi-mi"..heehee..wonder if u have took any pictures on the jar, care to share?how much ribbons did u got from spotlight?hmm..i guess we better go & check it out b4 it closes down..thks for sharing with us..thks~
Hi janey. oic... I haven have the time to ask my doctor yet. Dunno if she will entertain calls to clinic or do I need to go down personally...
Hi Rokko, last time I heard you settled on your design liao mah so thot maybe you have gone for your first fitting
Remember to take some pics to show us your gorgeous gowns, ok?
Hi sharlene, I also ended up taking alot of similar pics leh. But my BS says that the 2 sides of the album must "match" else will be very weird. ie. cannot be one vertical one horizontal nor 2 totally different "zhao xin". maybe it's their way of making us buy more pics... 4-6 weeks not too bad lar. Mine needs to wait till 20 May leh. very long
thanks blursotong n cute miffy for ur suggestions... i had tot of botanical garden as one of e venue but dunno if need to seek permission from e authorities or not?
i hav not meet up wif my photographer yet.. think wil oni get to meet up wif him on my first fitting which is in may..
hey blursotong, where is tis hangout hotel? mt emily? sorry for my ignorance.. really never heard of it b4 care to enlighten me? btw, i think also need to seek approval from e hotel management rite? actually, was thinking of going back to gallery hotel for outdoor PS.. however, as i've ROMed there, tot mayb shouldnt duplicate e same sceneries again..
so gal, u decided on which photographer oreadi?
u tot about ur ps venue yet? anyway, im going bintan for one of my PS so beach scenery is out.. now think stil got time to think of e other place..
btw cute-miffy, u decided ur BS yet? ur AD is 24th nov rite? i a bit gan jiong for u oreadi leh!
Not really la, initially we counted the number of pics we wanted and then will check if the amt is acceptable, if not then shrink down again lor, but just happen to be acceptable $ for me and HB.
Ya, quite long like urs. By then then collect, but now like can't wait already leh... hee
Alo. Can I join in? Tot of asking my questions here instead of mid-year brides cos' mostly same ppl anyway
Hi dey. I thot of getting a piano on stage for my hubby to play but Regent said they will charge for the tuning fee and the moving fee
So we gave the idea up. Instead, we will ask his brother to play the piano during the reception where there's already a piano. Was it difficult to get your hotel to move the piano for you?
Hi yuki, that's a good idea to put the muslim table as reserve. I have one muslim table (my dad's frens) so far but yar, heard that they often last min dun come and even if they did, they give very little for hongbao
Err... does anyone has recommendation on good jazz songs for March-in? I will be having a jazz band for my dinner but they are only playing 12 songs and I am thinking of getting them to play during march-in. But I personally don't listen to jazz so have no clue what songs are there
ya ya..agreed... but most of my gf got married already. they dun have such prob, guess they nt as particular as me i guess.. I have calculated, guess the full package I will pay ard 5.3K which is abt the same as TC... I will be making arrgment to meet rick tis wkend i guess.. are u gg for ur fitting any time? guess u have to do it already rite...one of my fren may wan to explore the package, do u think they will allow me to trf?
The piano is already in the ballroom..no need to pay to use...My hotel charges extra for muslim meals. Anyway, I dun have many muslim friends.. but if u do have many muslim friends, is quite a good idea to put them in the reserve table lor..
Good Morning Ladies.... I'M BACK in action again..

me managed to buy a red colour heart shape Ang Bao box from the wkend market... also bought 1/2 dozen of bra & panty back... very happy & satisfied with this trip,.. except that I LOST MY HANDPHONE IN THE CAB TO THE AIRPORT !!.. sad, this is the 2nd phone i lost in 9mths...
hi hi dey,
no contacts for mugs. (maybe u can try the gift shops etc... they could have some "wedding themed" mugs.... that would be sooo cute)
my co-ordinator is eugene. who's yours? i have not met up with them yet to discuss the theme. (have you? will you be calling them or waiting for their call?)
u will be using the piano? so interesting....
you hiring someone or getting a fren to play. (me and hub are "musical retards"... so, we are always envious of people who can play music well.
watashi, welcome back...wah, buy so many ungarments there..Big sale issit?? hee...
So did ur FH had his suit done at Bangkok? U lost ur hp? Me too lost my hp in the KL airport n its only a 6mths old fone....so heartached...
Hi there nena, for AD photography I highly recommend ray ong from photolanguage, his AD photos are one of the best in this business. Meng from imagegarden good in colour and black and white AD shots. For videography, you can have a look at fabian lim, the wedding paparazzi, p1lgrim pictures (replace 1 with i). You can do an online search for them..they all have websites!
Trying to keep my budget for wedding favors low..over-spent on many items already ..favors from these gift shops tend to be more expensive..trying my best to source for one which is within my budget..else will keep to the chocolate provided by FS..
My coordinator is Georgette. We have not met up to discuss on the wedding details yet but would have to arrange food tasting with her soon...
Will be engaging my nephew to play the piano for me..he will play the march in song for me..my only worry is that the sound from piano may not be loud enough to create the effect for a grand march in ..
I understand the pain to lose a hp. Mine was stolen from my bag in a MRT and it's also a 3 months old phone. I didn't know who stole it but i suspect it's a worker who was standing behind me and i was careless to put my hp at the side pocket of my gym bag. I just curse and swear at the thief in my heart.....sigh.....and it's so troublesome to lose a hp cos all the contacts gone....just like a part of your life missing like that.......
