Hi Strawberri & blink,

I think it's a bit early. I have alrdy arranged for my first fitting in early Jan and photoshooting in end May or early June. So far I have no recommendations for MUA, I did ask Jade, she told me that they have several MUA.


New Member
hi sue,

ya, my mum better now... her ear water level imbalance, thus causing her to be giddy n out of breath....

i told my co-ordinator that i wanna a halter neck EG, then she let me try all patterns of halter neck... but somehow, she din tell me whther i look nice in halter neck or not.... now i having 2nd tots cos i dun think i look nice in halter neck, look very old like mama-san....


New Member
Hi tingie,

Actuali for me i hvnt sign up for any BS yet also... so still shopping around.. hehe


New Member
hi gals,

as for me, im doing my PS about 3 weeks from now. meanwhile i had been very 'on' these days - reviewed my checklist, arranged for MUA for my helpers etc etc.. and guess wat i just did today? i actually planned out my AD itnerary programmes (using my frd's one as a sample)! hahaha so kiasu right.

and yup, i agree w serlz, i think jan and feb are gonna be our busiest months! as for now, wat needed to be done has been done i guess, for all of us. i will be sourcing printers for the invites by next month... any good ones to recommend?


New Member
hey ladies, care to share your budget with me so we can see if we can share resources for BS shopping? can PM or email me at [email protected]

karen, i am toooo lazy to search for BOWS 2008 info yet, just know it'll be on 4th-6th Jan 08. And i think there is no fees needed but we need to register.

well maple, i'm definitely not going to be a $5k BS Bride cuz i don't have such financial support..keke..so shop shop see see look look!!!!


New Member

next to do over d weekend will be meeting up wif VG & PG to view their portfolios for shortlisting fast....my BS juz contact us to pop by to view d actual printouts of our photos in 15R....=)


New Member
Hi Nec,
Will be looking at Singapore's BS. One major consideration is convenience.

Sigh, not sure what to look out for during bargaining....rather confused between the number of poses and number of pages in the album etc....any advice will be greatly appreciated!

Nec, may I have your email address to forward you the soft copy? The ones I have are mainly wedding lunch/high teas and only a few are for dinners. I have the solemnisation package too. Let me know what type you are interested in to avoid jamming up of your inbox.

Btw, are you in the science/medical field? Asking cos of your nick..."Necrosis"...If yes, then you will understand what I mean when I say "I feel like I'm in the process of apoptosising"....


New Member
hi polarwhite,

I also want to crash everything on the same day-27th sept.But am not sure whether is tea ceremony+church+dinner...or church+tea ceremony+dinner



New Member
I am also starting on my DIY stuff. Had already completed most of the accessories and jewelleries for my bridesmaid, flowergal and personal helpers.

Now decided to save the printing cost to do my own church wedding prog and wedding favour-bookmark. Heh...I am just adding to my own workload


New Member
hey polar... seems like me leh.. i have that problem too.. out of the blue i felt giddy. Normally i dun have such symptoms.. so i thought it would go away and was prob due to low blood pressure or something.. then it happen again.. until i had to go to the dr and was of the same thing .. ear water level imbalance.

that is so scary.. you nv know when it will hpn one.

Hope your mum feel better already.

ya... i also wan to see pics.. hehehe... show me leh.



New Member
hi gals,

my gowns r MTM wan, so my WG i do not have much pics on it cos i already know wat i wan.... i do have a few pics on EG cos i am stuck so i try every pattern that i see.... end up, i still stuck.... hahaha....


New Member
hi girls...

my nov AD is gonna be held in india. :p
SG one shld be sometime in Dec if i can get a venue.

if you're looking to sign up a BS.....always bargain!!!!
the sample ablums comes with 50-70+++ poses in 35-45 pages.
and they usually only supply 30 poses with a normal package...so you can imagine if you want an album similar to the samples, you wld need to top up abt 20++ poses...
say each is 65$, this means 1300$ on top of the package... :p

and note, you'll lose all bargaining power once you sign and pay a deposit.
so do ALL the bargaining before this.
oh, signing up during fairs is good, cos fair space rental is not cheap for them, so they need to hit a quota, prob will agree to most requests...dont be too demanding also, be nice to them, they are also trying to earn a living...

good luck...


New Member
Hi Girlies,
Wanted to DIY some stuff as well. Anybody knows where I could get or can borrow paper cutters from? You know those once which the photo studios used to sice out the borders of passport photos in the older days?



New Member
hello jac..
yups, i know what ya mean.. hee..

poses = photos
pages= pages in an album

say you want a "magazine" style album, means they will arrange photos (=poses)with digital artwork...
this means one page will have a few poses arranged such that the backgroud blends with one another...or one of the poses IS the background, the rest are foreground...
oh, they may add bubbles, words, curly designs etc also
you've seen those around i'm sure.

the other style, without digital artwork, usually means one pose per page..

really depends on what you like...

i've seen some ugly layouts in magazine styles, and i've seen really stylish ones...
i've seen very classy one-per-page type albums also...

those sample albums usually have 50-70+++ poses in 35-45 pages.
most packages start from abt 25-30 poses...
so to get an album similar to the samples, you'd need to topup abt 20+ poses.
each pose costs ave $65 (range 55-105/per pose)
so you'd be topping up $1300 thereabouts.

so this is a "hidden cost"
allow for it in your budget if you can.
more impt, bargain like xiao, nicely of course..
they are also trying to earn a living..
do ALL your bargaining before you sign and pay a deposit, once that happens, you can only depend on their goodwill...

make sure everything you bargained for, was promised and assured, is written down in black n white on both invoices (yours and their copy)...some places change staff, so the one that you signed up with may disappear and the shop will not "remember" promising you anything more...

think abt what you need...
MTM anything?
car? corsages? car deco? fathers' jackets? bridesmaids dresses? ROM dresses? ROM make up and flowers?

try to include everything under the sun....even those you DONT NEED.
then try to exchange the ones you dont need (with great reluctance) for more poses or discounted price.

...phew...super long post. :p


New Member
hope that helps..

my email is [email protected]
i dont need solomnisation packages, will do it in a church.

dinner packages will be greatly appreciated.

now planning the holiday, havnet booked hotels yet. :p
no time to deal with venue booking also..


New Member
hehehe.....hope u can get d sash pattern wif big ribbon, if it turns out nice, ask them how much it cost to make d sash ok? a shorter version...remembered dat time i was telling u? nvm, u still got a long way to go...take ur time to choose ur EG


New Member
Hi Tingie, Thanks for the info.. I also have shortlisted GHA as it is right below my house and alot of my friends said it is best to get near our house.

So how about fame bridal? I heard the service is good.


New Member
Hi Esther,
usually outdoor venues have backup options if it rains, you can check with them what is their backup plan


New Member

New Member

Hello dT

New Member
Not yet, next friday will be my PS. Kit is my PG too, heard that he is not too bad too.

What time u going down, maybe can see u there hehe.

Hi girls...

i finally confirmed my VD &amp; PG for my AD...
this sunday i'll be going down to my BS to choose my gowns...told my hubby to bring his psp along, if not he'll be damn bored...
i was talking to my PG ydae and told him that i was thinking of using the pet farm, then he suggested that i bring my dog to an open field so she can take the photos with us...so in a dilemma now...hmm...
