Hi Pigger

I booked Scarlet when they still had promo rates. $150+++, so came up to $180 or so..
I like the big peony lah, actually not much choice coz only 1 shop was open tt day when I went down.

Thanks for the compliments on the CS & WG. WG with ribbon in front is for AD, CS is for tea-dress (made with a seamstress), EG is more for PS may use for AD. WG at botanic gdns is outdoor WG.

tougei,
Yap.

Sharlene,
So far me no problems.. I have abt estimate number of 450 guests and cards I printed abt 290 cards. Hotel wont charge u extra if U take the additional cards by adding additional tables. :p

It is a trade off lor, dunno leh, I thought better than giving the hotel too many tables.. unless u sure u can fill up. what u can do is go through ur list and count how many minimum guests u have.. (those who die die will come one), It really helps. Else use inserts, print more inserts and then when not enough cards, get from hotel

hi daphne, i am flying in the afternoon around 3pm heheh i more worried cos my mum is going, i worried that we may have toa light from the plan and walk the long stairs down, do you think it will happen? i worried about my mum cos she has hypertension and did not take plane for a long time.

hi caityln, yeap i agree with your family leh holi more ex. but can use the time for er4 ren2 shi4 jie4. i read in the thread of my crazy MIl, make me worried leh, to see some MIL following to stay even on wedding night at the hotel. so better treasure times

ha ha...winnie! i was reading that thread too.....cos i'll be staying with MIL for a period of time till we sort of found our own place.....scary rite based on what was written there....

Not sure about the stairs...the other time i took valueair to jkt, i don't remember the long stairs though...not sure about HK. I only remember the air stewardess singing to us in plane. it's a very relaxed and casual feeling with valueair.

Icy,
That means u having 45 tables? I have confirmed 35 tables excluding reserve though we invited 400 guest. Hotel only gv us 250 cards. For extra cards, they do charge as their cards were outsourced by American wedding treasure and each card is quite ex. I already negotiated from original 50% to 70 percent invites. Mine is hot stamping thus no inserts. Our guest are mostly colleagues and friends, relative less than 8 tables only thus need to use alot of cards.

caitlyn, yup true abt wedding being the one to experiment with something diff. guess we will hv to try and see how the diff colours will suit us. hee...coz sometimes the colours really i thk dun suit mi. or the dresses i see for the EG. act in the mags, i hardly can find any EG that i really like yet.
ashie, heh heh...i thk i sama like u , appt only in may, so by the time really get down to toking to designer, will be mid may? unless i rush the BS.

HK is nice! so gd...u gals all gg on shopping trips like BKk and HK. sigh...only can envy u...haha
hey can get very nice & cheap kuas there too besides CS...better den the ones BS usually provide. coz mi grandauntie got it fr there for her daughters and i intend to borrow it fr her too.

HI daphne, please pardon me for my suakuness hehehe, but hor, you know if we take flight, tehr is a connecting path that we can walk from airport into the plane right??

the tour agency told me that for value air maybe need to change to bus when we reach HK leh, that means touch down, have to switch to bus then can reach the main airport, not sure if it is liek that.

Hi chanol, actually dont want to go one cos cannot really afford it, now i have to postpone my purchase of wine first. but my parents ask for it so i intend to take them out first, more impt.

ohh yo mean it will be cool? my hubby told me he hates going during this period as it will be very very hot, so it is not true right?? sorry again suaku.

pierced, you mean can get cheap CS??? i am hoping leh. but hor, i going GHA on this friday for fitting and empire to look-see. if nothing much in GHA, I may go back to empire to buy on 5th may when i am on leave. hmm but that is before my trip so not sure if i should wait.

New Member
winnie, err......not too sure about that cos i only took once with valueair to jkt and i didn't need to take the bus. it's possible that you need to take bus to reach airport...

jtan: have resent u the link, please check...

I like your EG...u look good in it
happy.gif
Say, are they going to adjust the Halter straps? Maybe it's the camera angle or if it's intentional, the first pic of your EG, the right strap looks low than your left...

your WG very sexy ya!! is the bare back netting going to have anything???

Pigger: which PS are u with?
 

fifidoog

hey sierra,
thanks, sorry for the trouble. no access to internet email in office so i gotta check when i get home
happy.gif

hehe... ok i will note the straps, yeah, but it's not fixed yet so it was only pinned on at the time.

the bare back netting will have some of the same embroidery as on the rest of the WG.
happy.gif
