I also will be arranging a makan session with the brothers and sisters for ice breaking as well as briefing for the AD. Thinking of either holding it in my new hse or at a restuarant. I had allocated 30 mins for the tekan session. My HB will hate it. He finds it not necessary and shld be a nice occasion, why must sabo then suffer? ehhe.
Why do u say whether can u select 20 pics? I believe it will turn out well
my HB also not yet confirm his brother lists, u are not the only one. As for my jiemeis, I keep changing as some of them change job, can't be jiemei and some pregnant....
I never thot of giving ang pow to the BS since we had paid good money for the package. Instead, thinking if I shld invite my designer to the banquet to show appreciation....
my pearl necklace very plain one leh. just one string of pearls. anyways i will try and take photo and post up here for you to see.
thanks for your compliments. my WG at the back got transparent netting, which will have the same type of embroidery on it. it's just not finished. and the rest of the gown where there's embroidery, will have beading up as well so it looks more glam.
highness - sorry to have bullied ur little sister.. haha.. u ppl cm to forum to ren qin qi.. so cute.. i also dunno how to d/load the pics.. sorry can't help.. SOMEONE help!! so we can see our highness' pics!!!
winnie - thx for the tips.. i also die liaoz.. cannot cook.. u sound really excited.. hv a good time and remember to show us ur pics!
sk2 - hee.. th course supposed to help u get ready for marriage and to understand ur other half better.. some after gg for course realized tt they not suited i gues.. hee.. but small minority..
berry - i think EB does hv quite nice WGs.. i was also EB bride.. but now TC bride.. same as SK2.. mine not becoz cannot find gown but very long story.. hee.. anyway, i liked the WGs at EB but their EGs very lousy selection
Did u ask specially to try the wine? or did the hotel give as complimentary? There is a whole list of wine the hotel provides but i am not sure which taste the best.. mayb i should check with my coordinator if they provide any complimentary wine tasting.
I have checked with my family doctor. Seems that it is easier to delay menses then make it come earlier. She recommended a medicine (sounds like "Diane") which is actually to control acne. She says no side effect... and no acne hahah. You are suppposed to take it immediately after your last period for about 3 weeks daily. About $35. Think it is similar to the one Janey took
Oh, I went to Greenpoint to discuss my bouquet - she also says flurry stuff not compatible with lace gown
I will be getting pink cymbidium with yam roses and lace flowers. Think it would be simple and not too colourful. By the way, what colour deco would suit a maroon car? Are you gals getting real or fake flowers?
I think i will be getting the car deco from Greenpoint as well - more worth it than just the bouquet.
Sigh, I got 2 jie meis back out liao
One just started work with a new company and most prob cant take leave. Sad
Don't worry as your photos will turn out mei mei one. For me, I also sweat a lot and my forehead was quite oily but in the end, the photos turn out quite alright.
I do not intend to give any angbao to my coordinator as well as my designer cos I do not actually like the way they handle my case. But if they were a little nicer and not so money-minded, I might have given them a little token. Maybe a hongbao of $38 each. Collecting my gown 3 days before the AD.
My husband hates it too but I will definately tekan him and not let him off that easily. So, he will remember it for life. Explain to your hubby lor that it is the fun part of marriage. Ask him not to take things too serious. But I told my hubby that I won't ask him to play all those embarassing thing like wearing red undies or dance around the pole. Will ask him to play those more intellectual ones which I have yet to think..
I have not even come out with my own jiemei list..guests list, schedule, etc. Jialut!
i've tot of making one myself but i'm nt beri gd at handicraft, furthermore can save time..hehehe...but i'll probably drop by spotlight n rackie rackie c any idea on how 2 do it...
so hve u bought yr materials? where u intend 2 go buy yr materials?
i noe yuki n ying had done the corsages themselves, beri nice ley...wish i could do as nice as them...if really can't DIY will buy instead...
hmm..quite agree tat ang pow more practical but then if i can't really find any suitable gifts for them, i'll give ang pow...
...however for MUA, photgrapher, videographer, i'll give ang pow...
i agree with ying tat difficult 2 gather all of the jie mei go medi/pedi, unless just give them cashy, then ask them 2 go, or buy voucher 4 them...
hmmm makan session...i think with jiemei can liao...cos tekan session is done to yr hubby n xiongdi, so xiongdi tag along 2 yr makan session, they will noe it n tip yr hubby liao..hehehe..how many jiemei u having?
might wanna consider this magic wok, thai food, nt too x...like zhi cha...
i've allocated abt 15-20 min for the tekan session, but hve no idea abt wat 2 tekan my hubby...i told my hubby tat i'm gonna tell my sisters wat he is scared of...hehehe..he warned me nt to go too far, wait he really dun married me..hehehe..i told him nt to b spoilsport mah..then i assure him tat we won't go overboard...hehehe
Hi cookie gal
oh give BS coordinator ang pow...hehehe...never heard b4, hve anybody done it? if really wan 2 give, izzit 2 give even 2 yr designer, photographer n those who r there? or oni coordinator...
hve u collected yr shoes? wat kind of design u hve 4 yr shoe?
By June u can move in! So exciting hor?? or u moving in after Oct?
Phew,not the only one choosing black hehe. its out of the norm but i think tat is why nice. i m thinking striking blue also nice. see how tomorrow! Dun know when is my fitting cause supposed to confirm colours tomorrow only.
Montage emailed me the other day to tell me that the album and my photo collage is ready already. Can collect anytime I return back to Singapore. Have you paid Ted already? After I paid up, I really felt a hole in my pocket *sigh* Haha! Am not taking wine from the hotel unless my husband forgets to settle the orders for the wine (so far, he is only in charged of his own guest list and wine) Think it can be quite expensive to get it from the hotel. When is your AD? Did Ted mention how many days in advance we can collect our gowns for AD?
Actually I didn't know that about the giving ang bao to chef part. I dun even know who suggested it during the wedding dinner. Now, come to think of it, I felt a little silly and maybe a little cheated for giving? Hahaha. I gave $88. Quite a lot right? GUess I was too jet lagged to think rationally! I do not have any pics of my PS yet, only some pictures my friends took during my first fitting tho!
I will also be having a makan/get-to-gether/briefing for all my helpers (jiemehs n xiongdis included). I think it is a good opportunity for them to mingle around to get to know all your helpers so that they wunt feel so awkward during your AD. YOu can also take the opportunity to go thru your AD itinerary with them.
i thot i was the only one with a bo chap hubby.... i dun think he even have any idea who is he asking to be xiongdi yet. sigh.... add that to his "blur-ness" about who on his guest list can come for the wedding etc etc... makes me on the verge of freaking out big time.
i also having "jie mei" blues....one of them (after I already tailored dresses for them) told me she cannot make it cos she needs to help out at home for some festival thingy... wah... stressed ah....
pic-wise, i think i fat already loh... some more all closed-up shots... my expectation not high... just hope to choose enough pics to fill the 20 page album...
these few days super hot, man... i was down with flu (today still feeling not very well)... so nose red red yesterday.... think my pics will look like clown... really unlucky...
i made and collected 2 pairs of white shoes (1 with crystal trim, another with organza flowers). i have another pink one which i have not collected. (think the design a bit like ballet shoes... dun know how to describe). all in all, i like their shoes.... quite suitable (i.e. does not cause blisters) for me.
thanks for the consolation... but think mine will not turn out well.... yesterday when we went out for outdoor shoots... sky was cloudy, a few drops of rain...plus i was sick so my nose was red.... even the make-up din help. sigh....
if can get 20 pics... i consider myself lucky liao...
tat's make me quite lazy to cook nowadays.. may nt be a gd thg...hahahah
eb has quite a fair bit of wg but nt eg.. if ur fren has only one mtm...pls get her to mtm eg.. as for me, i think i m quite fussy... kind of dun like their workmanship... so i gave up after trying 30+pcs
ya... i think is better to knw now then to file divorce.. =) so are we all gg together?? it will be fun..
anyone here like to go for "MilkRun 2005" is a charity prog for youth. held on 3 July. start pt from Zouk, end esplande.. let me knw if u need more details.
Dun have the date with me cos left at home. Anyway, I know its gonna be next week. In fact, I am really scared tat the final product may not be wat I want. Sigh...Howz ur gown like? Btw,when is ur PS? Mine shd be either 30June or 1Jul.
Maybe u should try turqoise colour cos itz the hippest colour for this year. Last yr was pink. As for me, I will not carry it well. You can check with Pat or Jordan if u would like to try. kekeke...Whenz ur PS?
caitlyn and sk2.. i will go eb and see this wkend then will decide...
how many bs u all visit b4 deciding?
ashie...dun wan flash lar... wait bao ba zhang...let me know how u all went for the prep course... mabbe i can consider too..
Hmm, no need $$$ at all (except for electricity bills lah). The multiply platform is sthg like a blog, but well organised with different categories. Agree that Geocities abit irritating with those adverts, but I think it's nice to create one anyway.
No need dreamweaver, it's very user friendly & just use all the functions w/o the need to download any additional programmes.
Yah, the red CS is pretty! Hahah, undecided on the EG as yet. Hmm, the red CS is by Yvonne Creative, the gold fusion CS is by Kim though
Eh, ur YC coordinator didn't tell u tt u can take pix ah? So wasted. Anyway do take a few informal pix after ur MU on ur PS day k? Want to see the gown & make-up... When's the PS & where u intend to go for outdoor?
me oso a bit scared of how my gowns will be like... guess my WG should be quite safe but for EG, the back design is not my 1s choice actually.. most of my friends prefer the 2nd choice.. so i chose the 2nd choice eventually.. and hehe, i'm afraid my mum will "faint" at seeing the high slit ..though i like the slit.. hehehe...
yeah .. think yours is earlier than mine... will only be going for PS on 12 Jul... my WG is a bustier and my EG is one with a slit at the side...quite difficult to describe.. maybe we can take photos of our gowns when we go for our 1st fitting and share our designs? I think we should be in safe hands of patrick and the gang.. must have the confidence that our gowns will turn out as what we imagined them to be... must be +ve... ok?
after going back to sth bridge rd for the 3rd time, i finally found the shop you're talking about! i can't believe that's the one shop at the end (nearest to the bridge) which i missed! so i finally managed to get those pink pearl pins which i wanted.
Guess u must be stressed over ur forthcoming 1st fitting. me too! Let's pray hard..
Really appreciate your great effort! For the next dining venue, maybe we can consider chinese restaurant with round table for a change? So far, we have been to pasta mania, japanese rest, fusion rest like Nooch. At least with round table, all of us can chat together and more cosy!
Any recommendation so tat it will be easier for Angela?
I am considering about 4-6 ah yees. But like june, a lot of ppl cant make it cos they are going on holidays.
I also have some friends who cant be my jiemei as one of them is attending a ROM on that day. Another close friend is pregnant and i think my MIL can be very pantang, so, I can't have her be my jiemei too.
I think one AB to the MU and photographer will be enough. If your mum is giving, I dont think you need to give.
Thanks for your responses. Thought of giving my coordinator ang pao coz my experience with my BS so far has been great. Since almost everyone there knows us, most probably will bring something down for everyone to makan to thank them when I collect my gowns. I will definitely be giving my MUA an ang pao coz my AD is her birthday!
BTW, went to my BS to select my bouquet, AD kua and car decor over the weekend. Now just waiting for final fitting 1 week before AD. Can fully concentrate on my banquet arrangements for now.
Oh no! Hope our designs are more or less the same. I have a high slit as well but infrt of my front thigh. Urs too? kekeke...btw, wats ur name huh? i told Pat tat i have a fren with him too. he asked me who...kekeke...i said i duno! Wat a joke rite? He laughed at me!!!!
I think its Diane 35, there's a thread on this and reviews were very good leh. Will u consider taking? Do u visit the Family doctor just to enquire on this? Do they charge for answering these question?
As for car deco, its advisable to use silk flowers, if not the real flowers will all be wiltered by noon. The car engine very hot, no water plus hot sun, wilter very fast. Must be prepared if use real flowers.
My PS that time that flower also Yam roses. Cymbidium orchid put on hair very nice!
I also got total 3 jie mei opt out due to change job and pregnancy, 1 more not confirm as not sure can siam the company convention or not. Thus I had replaced them....
