Jasmine, i went out at 4+pm and it was very slight drizzle so not that bad...but when we reached the 1st destination at marina south the rain almost stopped and we are still able to take the PS and by the time we leave the 1st destination the rain totally stopped.... so lucky

I had 5 gowns for indoor shoot and 1 for outdoor....how many u have?

You have 2 outdoor gowns? means u gotta go out for outdoor liaoz then go back to your BS to change the gown again for other locations?


New Member

can i ask where did you get your materials from? other than Spotlight and Arab street, where else do you source for materials?
ic..nvm, u share with us once u get it lor..

ya, i got 2 outdoor gowns, 1 EG & 1 WG. need to bring one set of casual wear too.. I duno if need to go out then come back to change or wat leh.. cos BS didnt mention. but MUA will be gg out tgt with me..


New Member
Hi Pet,

Okie. It's ok for u to post the cross stitch to me ard mid-Jul so that I can concentrate on it after my PS.
email me to get the address when u are ready. Once I know the design I can discuss with u over email what I planned to do for ur pillow before I start on it.

Usually I explore areas ard arab street up to jalan sultan area, people's park, chinatown and jalan besar areas. Opp n nearby bras besar, there is a shop called fancy papers. Sama sama like art fren can get variety of papers for guest book and ap box wrapping. another place for cheaper cloth materials is Joo chiat, tanjong katong area.


New Member
Can someone share with me where can i make wedding cakes? I went to Cheryl Shuen and cake avenue, they are out of my budget! Thinking of making cupcakes.


New Member
Does anyone has an actual day event list to share? I thinking of getting real wedding cake, can someone share with me the bakers for wedding cake. I had enquired Cheryl shuen and cake avenue both are out of budget.

wats up with you?</font>


New Member
Min Mic, you got to try when you are at the BS..whether you look "wow" in the gown anot or whether you look farnie anot...all these a good designer would be able to advise you.

Me with Flamingo at wallich street.

You need do research than with those research list in photos show your designer your options..she/he will let you try on the cut/designs fabric that you will look good in.

If you are the "chin cai" one than suggest you leave everything to your designer..but I tot make a little effort in finding your right gowns would be nice and meaningful.

Have you done your BS hunt B4 you took MR &amp; MRS wed?? Have you seen enuth BS to be able to know what sort of material you like or prefer?


I signed only after my 3rd visit to Flamingo AND after visiting at least 18 BS...haaa


Jace, where your residence? I intended to get a real wedding so did a search at my housing estate place. They do weddign cakes but they only used fresh cream not "icing".

They do cakes for events like army POP day or company ie. M1, Motorola anniversary. The cakes are not bad not sweet.

Due to budget I need to put that on hold even thought they are cheaper than Cheryl Shuen..haa..

They do 2 or 3 tier fresh cream cakes..range is from 200 plus and above depending on the kg...

But the cake shop is located in sgoon north so it may be inconvenient for you.

As for event list, I can't share with you as I have a church wedding follow on a buffet lunch and evening banquet.. rather long winded and long event..ha...you may have headache seeing my format..

Talk to your in laws and parents side to decide whose side to do the tea ceremony first or both side do the tea ceremony in same venue?

Any timing to come pick you? Once you got all these, it should be alot easier to plan the AD events.

Example FOR YOURS :

07.00 : Bride wake up
07.30 : MUA arrival
08.30 : Groom arrives
09.15 : Leaves for in law place for tea ceremony?
11.30 : Leave in law place back to brides place for tea ceremony
12.30 : Leave for hotel
17.00 : AA tp check music and sound
17.30 : MUA arrival
18.45 : Get ready to change for cocktail
19.00 : Go DOWN receive guests

Good luck!

New Member
Hi elven_princess,
It's full page... so I'll be having 28 full pages of 28 photos... after dividing, I only have about 5 photo per gown.. is it enough?


New Member
Susan..at current I have no pictures to show you what's the difference..it's alot more expensive to make...erm and price at The Patissier and Pine...ar not cheap...

The one I mentioned I dun have the contacts now..think it's in office. Location is in sgoon north ave 1 estate called "chang wang cakery" They will have pictures to show you. They had done numerous "ocassion" cakes but all are in "fresh cream"

Note : No precious moments look-alike cakes only use cream for the design of the cake.

Because it is located in HDB estate it is cheaper than the shops featured in "Seeking the right one".

You may wan to check out this link to see if there are any OTHER cake shop who can do the wedding cake :


When I get the exact address I will advise u gers.


New Member
Hi Wendy,

Congrats! Thanks for the recommendation. Will check out that place as well. Actually I have no specific design in mind so still waiting around. Waiting for Great Spore Sale to see if any good discounts.


New Member
hi sept brides, how r yr progress for e wedding? when will you be taking yr PS? mine is in mid july, hope there is enough time to print my invitations!
cos hubby's car is a 7 seater then the back seats can push down one..so will have lotsa space..juz need to used cloth to cover up..i also duno leh..maybe might have to go back to change ba.. muz ask them tml..


New Member
<font color="ff0000">pandalic,
U got mail!

Thanks, will got check it out! Pay by credit card issit?

Hmm, i think 28 pages seem okie to me, maybe u can negotiate for afew xtra pages of magazine style (3-4 pics on 1 page) so u can select more photos for your album? I saw my cousin's wedding album &amp; hers is also protrait style like yours &amp; she only had 22 pages.
Is your photographer gng to return u all pics? If he is, maybe u can develope some of the extra pics yourself &amp; do your own album?</font>


New Member
wow 7 seater is nice!! hehee...

yeah it's been raining..hope it does not affect ur taking PS..all the best!! enjoy it! it's fun..but i think Outdoor ones are much tiring than indoor shoots!


Active Member
gintonic n cocoberry,
I totally agree! didnt expect preparing wedding to b so stressful..now when our wedding is just around the corner, suddenly dunno where all the stess come from..
plu now we're settling house reno too..meetng the IDs n contractors, n deciding on one, plus sourcing for furniture n all that stuff..its crazy...

hi tsukushi!
i tried twisting it too..but dunno why when i tried putting it on it was poking me..n was not very comfy..how u manage to twist it properly? so li hai! =D

think coz i added ribbons under the flower, so when i twisted it it didn't look so nice..


New Member
hi agree with tsukushi, we started with sewing..in the end found it more time consuming..twisting wires is easier...but have to flatten it else will poke like what magical said..


Wao... getting more and more sept 30 brides!
My preparation is like almost done, just waiting for PS. still have EG, yet to confirm design.
and trying to think up idea for my dinner without me and FH being the clown!


New Member
hi Olivia,

one of my shooting venue shld be at our secondary school because I knew my hubby since sec 1.. =) shld be interesting..

My mtm gown shld be ready by nend of this month or early next month... =) Bridal Studio is Silverlining Bridal because the gown designer is my senior from NAFA... and knew him too... hehehe


New Member
Hi all,
I just bought a pair of silver (open-toe) 4-inch kitten heeled sandals at NOVO Suntec, with sequins on the front cross strap. It's having a 50% discount now. Only paid abt $55 for it. think it's value for $$, can consider going NOVO to have a look if anyone of you is looking for shoes. There's a few designs there on sale.
Btw, I'm having my wedding on 17Oct06, also a Oct06 bride


New Member
just went IMM with hubby yesterday. found this box at daiso. u might wana go n chk it out n use it for ang pao box. we hvnt decided how to deco it. but intending to jus use nice wrapping paper to wrap it up.


i think the dimensions not clear. the length * breadth * height is 40cm*25.5cm*25.5cm.

actually this box doesnt hv a cover. but cos there are 2 layers for the handle area. so that part can be used as the top cover.


New Member
