hihi all,

Wah.... was shocked when I logged in. this thread suddenly become so active. u gals no need to work one huh? how did the topic from PG/VG twist and turn to number of xiongdis and jiemeis?

Anise
RTC min number of tables for weekends is 40 tables though. If less than 30, i think they will make u take a more expensive menu. Not too sure... must call and ask.

Huichinz
Malay wedding. cool... i once attended one and there were at l000 pple squashed at the void deck. good idea to do it in a CC. Btw, are u going to be wearing the malay bridal outfit? Is your FH's family the strict muslim type?

Starizzit
Wow... 10 brother and 10 sisters.... your poor FH... will be badly tekan by all your jiemeis !!!

Btw, for all who added me on their MSN ... THANKS... though i am still blur who is who though.

piglet.. you're back from BKK.. I'm going next week.. yay! Did you lug home a lot of things?

yuki.. most important the flowers match your dress, so maybe you can tell the florist the design of your dress & they can make a bouquet that complements it.

Hi happyface,

I just met him last nite. His works are really good. What really impresses me is his eagerness to excel as well as his pride in his work. His latest AD works has improved leaps and bounds from those featured in his website. He may not seem impressive/look like a fotographer on initial impression but after we got into an animated conversation on his works, how he started out doing wedding photography and his experimental styles... me and hubby are almost HOOK, LINE and SINKER! Hubby went to see a doc. got swollen eye. now waiting for him to come back and discuss further.

Btw : His A1 Movie Poster and his MTV highlights are GREAT!!!

I am almost going broke over this wedding thingy.
 

fudgecake

New Member
hmmm happyface... the small AP to PG and VG is like a token only. seen my other frens doing it though. but sure if it is compulsory.
 

meie

New Member
yuki.. we just follow whatever my MIL arrange.. mine was that tiqing one first.. where those two uncles come to my house to indicate to my parents that my bf's side want to ask for my hand in marriage. After this, then my parents met his on another day.

Next got to tackle GDL & food tasting.. I always get nervous whenever both parents need to meet.. just seems a bit weird.. heheh.
 

chere

New Member
That means must also give a token to MUA? How about the younger ones.. like your cousins, nieces and nephews?
 

jaspire

New Member
yeah... i guess everyone is going broke! Haha... so does it mean that all the listed pple, groom will give AP but for xiongdi and jiemei... parents from both side will give AP and groom dun nid liao? Sorry ah, me quite confused...

happyface

hi fudgecake, i've met up with William Chua in apr when i was sourcing for PG for my ROM. His works are nice and he's easy to get along with. However, i managed to confirm another PG who offered a more affordable pkg. William is free lancing wedding photography but he told me he has plans to go full time soon.

i've heard of frens who have been other brides' jie meis before, they received angpows from the couple, amount is usually above $30. It depends on what you expect them to do, if they help you to plan, find your wedding gown, emcee, torture your hubby at the door, etc then i think they deserve more cos quite a lot of effort on their part, giving up quite a few days of their time. and i think they will really appreciate food and drink during the day. e.g. if you expect them to arrive at your place at 7am, then better have breakfast ready.
