Hi Leong

happy.gif


Congrats, Andreal ... his charges about $100 .. better to book appointment .. go to his website ... and you will find all details ...

yalor ... dunno when my turn comes for AD, will my frens be as creative as now .. ha ha .. cos by 2005 some of them might be too busy with their family planning .. kekeke ...

Congrats to Sihui .. perhaps you might want to consider Master Li .. we went to consult him .. quite good .. why not surf his website and see see look look before you dec ..

Sorry posted wrongly, me so sotong today. Should be 27th mar 2005. 7th july 2004 is my solemnisation. pai seh, today too blur

New Member
Hi Sihui/Andreal/nanshee and all...
happy.gif


I got the wedding date but haven't prepare for anything yet.. coz hubby was currently not in SIN. so will have to wait till he come back in Mar 04 then can decide on the banquet venue.

But currently we had a few in mind already... so now trying to find out more ...We are considering 88 restaurant (@ harbourfront), Qianxi (Marina), Tung Lok (the one at Daimaru)..

As for the booking of the dates.. think if the banquet mgr allows and u r fine with the pricing and all arrangement .. u can go ahead and book already.. think need to be kiasu sometimes to get the venue u want especially if the date u chose is a Hot date..
happy.gif


oh Andreal..Think if u go to the directory and click on the bridal makeup.. Daniel should have his website there.. else u just go to the posting under the Experts.. and u can request for his price list..

Hi Dor, Touraco, cutiebear, elaine77, Lynne and PPgroom.....

So nice to have this thread. =p

Cutiebear.. you're really fast!! i wished we could settle these things quickly too... but my FH prefers to take his time... heehee...
how do you like Irene's Creation? pretty ex right...

Lynne... how do you find Seletar Broadway? why did u choose it? their photog or gowns good? good value for $? near your house?
heehee.. sorry so many questions...

anyone going for marina mandarin show on 3 Jan? or graceful image on 4 Jan?

anyone knows of any other shows?
 

ane

New Member
Hi Hui,

cos my FH works 7 days a week and happen that he's free during 2 weekends, so i chop chop finish up everything.

Yes, Irene's Creation package is abit ex. and i must admit that i signed up by impluse!! The only reason of signing up is that my FH is amaze by the gown that I've tried on!!
blush.gif


Hv u start yr sourcing so far?
 

popie

New Member
Hi Hui,
hmm. to tell you frankly, SB not i choose one. my FH choose one. haha. i was just told by him to go there to sit down n listen to the staff talk and promote the package. hee.
i was initially very worried, duno whether SB trustworthy anot. cos like nvr hear b4. but according to FH, they do photo shoots for convocation every year. highly recommended by the university some more.
but i had a very confortable experience with the staff. due to our tight budget, we really stretch the package to the max, but the staff who service us was still very patient and everything was very negotiable. even the big boss came to sit down and talk to us and assure us that everything would be fine. the gowns are made to measure. which is something i really like, cos its going to be brand new! photos also not too bad. i mean, its jus a very normal package. unless you are looking for something very fanciful and original, for the price we paying i think its a good deal.=)
well, its not near my house. haha. i live in the west and SB is in the north.

no lah, you not asking alot of qn. i also alot of qn one. haha. glad that green horn like me can be of help. hee.

so wat are the shows which you be going?
marina mandrin show must pay? what will they be showcasing?
heard that there is a tung lok bridal show coming up too. on 10Jan. but must pay. thinking of going for that.

Hi gals,

So busy lately, coz gonna prepare for my ROM on 25th Dec. so fast..quite excited actually. Juz collected my certs yesterday, gotten silver canister and went for engraving for $21.90. Pretty nice work tho. Now headache, as I'm
looking for wedding bears for display. Thot of getting precious moments dolls but they r w/o stands, so have to use blue-tac to stick 'em...sigh..forget it. Vivien,nanshee,laluna,andreal....anyone know where to get cute couple bears? Forever friends weddin couple?
Gosh, I also din know that exchange of rings shd be wore on the left hand finger for bride too! I heard ppl always say, guys-left, gals-right? Isn't it? Y? Until my sis told me today that ring suppose to wear on the left hand finger...oh no, as when i custom-made my ring, the lady use my right hand!Gonna put it on my left hand later.

My gown also send back to BS to alter yesterday, slightly tight at the chest. But my seamstress says bustier shd be tight! but i simply find it too hard for deep breathe!!!
crazy.gif


My hotel event manager is very accomodating too. I made lots of requests and she sees to it w/o fuss. Highly recommended for WB to held there. Will consider Shangri-la for Banquet in 2005. My BS is great too,jus purchased their gown alone but lots of additional services provided. The ppl there made me feels at ease. IC is really great!At least, gotten some pleasant experience with BS and Hotel, kinda easy when come AD planning.

Lots of last min things to do now. hope no rain that day. will send photos when ready. take care everyone k....
