New Member
hi girls,
open car door,we will give $68 ( to b confirmed )
jie mei n brother - jie mei's will b based on the amt they got it from gate thrashing, brothers side,FH plan to give $28/pax
chauffuer - may give $10-$12 ( see his service that day)
PG n VG - dun plan to give, coz already pay them $30 each for the surcharge.. required them to come 30min earlier than expected,then need to pay them this surcharge... so dun plan to give again
MUA - dun plan to give too,coz will require her to stay n do 1 more hairdo for me, which cost me $150

for me,i told my parents, most of my cousins are the same generation as me,so dun plan to give ang bao.. only give those who r very young, example those still studying in pri sch..

maydeline, hi hi! :p



we have to gv AP to those kids even they never serve us tea? so tat means as long as they are present?
why must gv AP to parent? just curious.


me now having problems with the guest list. now a lot of ppl say cannot go even thou they say can. althou i already overinvite by 4 tables..still...*haiz*


New Member
divasan, u r good le, can overinvite so many.

actually i didnt do RSVP. i just assumed they will come cos who cannot aly say cannot come le.

later my dinner empty de..hahaha


babymiki2003 >> actually i expect at least 20% wouldn't make it and thus overinvited. i am looking at 30 tables but over invite by 3-4 tables at my bro's advice.

the most irritating part is that i asked if they can come before sending the invite and they promise they will.

den when i asked them have they received the wedding invite and i want to double confirm with them how many are coming as i am making the table arrangements then they say cannot.

wasted my efforts in the stamp, the phone call and also the wedding invite.


New Member
yeah i think the guestlist is the most "headache" part.i am having my wedding dinner on 30/12 and right now, i am still confirming my guestlist, havent sent the invites out yet but soon. plan to invite 20% above the confirmed no of guests. luckily my hotel coordinator allows me to confirm the final no. (latest) 4 days prior to the AD. this is all that we can do, if some guests really fly aeroplane at the last min, i guess there's nothing much that we can do but to take it haha....


New Member
yah kinda of quiet... heehee.. sorry that i always read but seldom contribute!!!

Well blog almost up with the file from express highlight - which i thought was pretty good

Take cAre gals


New Member
don't be suprise when those guest can tell you one night in advance or even the day itself that they can't make it.

this happend to me on my engagement lunch.

you gather the "confirm number" when you double check with them after you send the cards.. this confirm number you need to accoun for 20% who will not turn out on actual day.


New Member
Hi all,

My wedding is over in 3rd Nov. Now enjoying marriage life. And also feeling relax..free from the preparation woes.

So anyone intend to start a family soon? Hehe


New Member
Yah, I also face the same problem. But am glad that my guests able to tell me now that they can't make it. I'm just scared that on that day itself, I can't meet the minimum number of tables.

Also thinking of when would be the best time to give AP to MUA, photographers & videographers. To give them earlier, scared they will chin chai do after that. If give later, scared they thought no AP, so also anyhow do... I think too much liao hor? Hee...


New Member
the guestlist i really leave it to fate. but i only got 2 tables to worry cos 1 table is super kakis, 2 tables are colleagues. only need to worry that.

the rest are relatives and my SO's side which i dont wan to care.


New Member
ladies, anyone here done MOLE REMOVING? I am planning to do mine on 11 Dec with dr GOH from National Skin Center.

He advise me to do exocism (cutting it off, stich it up, 5 days later go back to remove the stiches) compare to Laser

He say Laser would actually have a bigger scar compare to exocism.

Any suggestion ladies?
