racherlle, have u been to Fairy's Inc to take a look...they have very nice eternity rings and bands...if you are creative, you can design yr own one and only piece...they don't re-create yr design for sale....and the gold colors are very nice, depending on how u put the colors together...i got my full eternity from there, and i have rose and black gold...call them for appt if you want to go, otherwise they are either not in the shop or they are busy with other clients.

Hi excited chris
My FH in charge of songs. He chose one christian love song, i think it's "I will be there". Another is a duet by bryan adams & babara streisand (I forgot the name..but this song a bit common though). I personally like "until the end of time" by sarah brightman, but unsure whether suitable or not.

Hazel, why don't you do it over two weekends? A bit tough though.....troublesome and tiring to boot.

Lipstar, I'm not sure about lunch tomorrow cos' I have stuff to clear over lunch. It'll be better on Friday, I think...But can I sms you tomorrow about noon to confirm whether I can lunch with you tomorrow - will that be a better plan for now?


New Member

Hi gals
I've decided on 1st march in song "The gift" fr Jim brickman's album. Thinking of using a compile of jazz as backgrd songs...bt kinda dry hearing the whole night yah..Looking for a light beat song for my 2nd march in,
so still cracking my brain. There has been a new release fr enya, am I rite?

Hi excited chris
Me & my FH are likely to depart for HM immediately after AD. :p Planning for pkg tour to switzerland & paris. A total of 10 dys. Now checking out with various travel agencies.

Maybe i can contribute on the hairdo or shld i say fr another BTB. :p Hope she dun mind me sharing with all of u w/o her permission .


Hi Lissa
Where r u planning to go? And are u like me to fly off after AD?

Hi suzanne
have not get back my PS photos, will sure inform all of u when ready k.

mm....Likewise I'll wait for event to do mani/pedi. :p example taking PS,AD & dinner. I've already bought 2 full set to be prepared for AD & dinner.


New Member
hi lovebug, sinkor, gingercat and ooshie

sent the link liao

well, ooshie,

the first 3 days when we were there,weather was ok...was only drizzling...but it drizzled like the whole day. we still continued our daily shopping cos the drizzle was very light. on the 4th day, it was sunny...now is supposed to be the sunny season...so guess by the time u go in feb, weather would be just nice. so no worries yeah


New Member
hi silentelf, i also find that there is no prob using the same one... cos it's good tat's why must recommend, if not the photographer eat grass, see nice but the bride doesn't allow her friends to use the same...my friends who got married, also keep recommending theirs to me...

thanks dorami, step, ivy and slientelf for the ideas ...

hi adel.. welcome


New Member
racherlle, long time din hear fr u. So u sign up wif wedding paparazzi??

moonlight, think its better for u to MTM since u realli cant find nice ones off the shelves.

magical, r u gg to MTM a pair of closed-toe heels for WG?


New Member
2 weekends also ve to pay for 2 tpt charges...
I tot I can jux separate them into 2 grps..my aunts like to play mahjong..thererfore would stay longer...
So, they can continue to eat the 2nd round...
I found one that can last 6hrs...
So, I jux order 50 pax food..can waive off the tpt chg

How abt me?


New Member
hi suzanne,

Like jocester i norm do pedi esp if i hv impt functions to attend. Moreover i prefer to wear open toe shoes..hence the need for more reg pedi. I cant be bothered for mani (except for my PS & AD :p) cos i type so much at work. practically sit there n TYPE!! needless to say..how nice my mani also PI CHA! hahaha..i planning to go dashing diva to do the virtual nails ley. Anyone tried? My manicurist told me its very nice n suitable for brides. There r over 100+ sizes to suit every bride. Think will be good for ppl with shorter nails like me

Pedi i might do somewhere else cos hor diva charges quite ex. The last time i went did french n cost me abt $70?? heart pain. But it lasted very long. So i m happy with it


New Member
Welcome Adel! *wave* Dunch worry..I've not got my venue yet, although I'm getting a bit panicky. Well, according to the boyz, there's always lots of time. For most gals, we tend to plan earlier. So, still can relax for a couple of months lah, unless you want a popular hotel on a popular date, then better start looking around.

Summer mei dao, take your time too. You probably know what you want, so it'll be easier lah.

Hey Frais, emailed you Chef Chan's contact/address last morning at 3am. Pls check either Yahoo or hotmail email address k & let me know if you've not rec'd?

Wow Ivy, you're really enterprising! Good on you!

Hey Silentelf, agree with Tulipz, Frais & Summer, just go ahead & use PG lah. It'll always be different coz besides venue, program etc, most of all, you will shine through with your own style.

Gals, mi going into major stress period now for work & also Xmas shopping. Hope wedding won't be like that too. SOS!


New Member
hi CAT.. haha.. nvm, i'll try to source fr other places, will keep u informed if i managed to get any.. =)

hi Wendy.. have been really really busy work, so didn't manage to post much & also no time to do any more wedding preps! finally will be going for my end of yr holiday next week! okie, pls include me in Jan's outing, am currently available for 6th & 13th...


New Member
<font color="0000ff">Hi all meidao babes.. I am BACK!.. hehe.. miss me mah?? i definitely missed all of you gers.. i had to read three pages to catch up with what i missed the past few days!! hehe.. now still abit stone from the reading..

firstly i need to congrats frais and summer on finally getting your dates.. fantastic piece of news!! n hor.. dun u dare to leave ah summer.. or i will chain you to me..keke

hihi ffbear...both me and cheers use eugene.. i took over someone package.. i think if you are really interested in chris ling package. you must sign up during their open house or promotional period.. kekke.. this piece of advice is given by ppl of chris ling orr.. i think for actual day. only john and eugene are doing leh.. avenue 8 chor hui is good too..

hey summer..i saw ron works.. really not bad.. anyway.. you still have some time to look for your PG and veunue... but dun wait too long okie?

welcome adel.. step and rodiana. glad that you can join us..

hey sweets.. storm.. cheers... all are back..
i having a heartattack le... haven start to shop for xmas ...sigh.almost freak out when i realise its this week .. god bless me..

hey silentelf.. hmm.. yah.. think even if you use the same PG .. it will still be different.. becoz the main chars.. the bride and groom are different!! so no worries at all


New Member
Hi ebell,
Ok Ok tks tks.. Btw, Do they have their own website where i can view their portfolio?

Hi Greta,
Same same.. I leave the songs to my FH.. Haha.. Then i'll inspect!!
But, he's abit weird to choose songs which nobody understand the language.. And he dun even understand the song.. Haha.. Told him by hook or by crook, he gotta find the lyrics!!

Hi Jocester,
Yes, Enya release her new album not long ago.. Will be gg to grab it!!

Tks for sharing.. Hmm.. Hairdo is also a big headage for me.. Coz i have "Mickey Mouse" ears

Wow, right aftr yur AD!! Me gotta wait til Oct.. Hmm.. Switzerland &amp; Paris a NICE place!! U'll be joining tours?

Hi Suzanne,
Same as Jocester.. I will do Mani when there's occasion.. Have bought a 6x pkg.. PS, CNY, AD &amp; for my 2 sis for my AD..


New Member
Idyll: Tmr I can't. Having Christmas lunch with colleagues.Next week lah! Though Tue 27th I'm on leave - my PS!!! How about next Wed, Thurs or Fri?

HAzel: Actually, I can meet u on weekend also. Cos when I go to town, I will travel past Ang Mo Kio on the MRT.


New Member
Hi Jocester,
Wow! you're really organised! you bought your mani and pedi sets oredi?

Hi Belle, Yah I walked past dashing Diva a few times its got really nice deco. Hmmm Virtual nails never heard of before might go check them out but the 70 for french pedi only sounds real ex! maybe only for my AD???

Hey anyone of you planning to get live band? I am also looking and sourcing for songs and like Jocester I also listen until 'dry' was just thinkign maybe getting a live band would be a lot easier for me as well... but I think its going to cost so I am still exploring. Want to give my FH a surprise actually but dunno how he will react to it ;op


New Member
oh ok.. thanks
i hear from my aunty that so long as you got a dew sets of clothing in your cupboard, then it ok..
anyway, "bu zhi zhe wu zui" kekekeke...


New Member
Hi Gals,

Just finished my PS yesterday but there was no sun so wondering now whether to re-take. hehehe.

Actually saw lots of other couples taking pictures on the same day.

Hi Jasda,

you can try SNAILS at Wheelock for mani and pedi. I love the way they make your nails very neat. Look for Jemina, she is good but gotta book her way in advance cos she is always booked. If you are planning to take close up of your hands or feet, its better to do a mani and pedi before hand.


New Member
Hi cindee,

Hey Ginger,
