Hi Tris, the background songs wehave chosen are mostly chinese songs cos both my hubby & me dun really listen to english songs so much.. so we decided to chose something more like US.. some songs are from FIR, Li Jiu Zhe, SHE, Jay Chow, JJ, zhang Dongliang, zhang fengqi etc.. hahaha.. I can email u on monday some of our chosen songs if u want..
Hi Dor, I m a Teochew btb =) but am clueless abt the traditions keke..n both r Christian families so tinkg we may just adopt the bare minimum procedures.

xinyi_reiko.. just to share what my BIL did for his wedding dinner.. he placed his apple eMac showing his photo montage at the reception area.. no cost is incurred at all.. can give a try if you like the idea..
Shall leave it to my mum to communicate with her what she wants exactly.
Kymmie, my friend intro me this florist who can work within your budget. I'm using them for my hand bouquet and car decor and corsages, etc. If you are interested, let me know I can pass you the contact.
I signed up with Santiago. Just went to try some gowns yesterday. Very nice! Mine gowns are all OTR. I think because I don't like the hassle of thinking abt designs, etc, so as long as when I wear the gowns and I feel comfortable and make me go WOW! I will be happy. Yest, we went to see a few other hotels. We love the ballrooms too but decided not to coz we know we will burst our budget as well. So, gotta remain rational lor. There will be alot of things we want or wish we could do, but being practical is the key. Gotta keep reminding ourselves that. Otherwise, at the end of the day, when the credit card bill comes, another stress. hahahaha...
BOWS is a yearly wedding show event. The largest too. You can visit this site for more details. Got freebies too. Heehee... http://www.bows.sg/
really feeling abit stress.. dun know wat to do and how much things left.. Anyway, as times go by we will all be very busy... I intend to hve a very simple wedding.. Actually i not really keen to have wedding.. Anyone gtg for honeymoon. Think u all can start to source for the price and package.
My wedding date's on 26 Dec 08. Already secured the hotel: Novotel Clarke Quay, and almost about to make the decision on the wedding photographer. (one of my conditions is that they must return all photos in high-res on dvd, so I don't need to do the "topping up" stuff). After that need to source for MUA, gown, suit, all that. Anyone out there like me who's doing your wedding staff a la carte?
Liting, Mindy & Florabliss, I'm thinking of making my own wrist corsages too. Are there lessons on how to make? Maybe can ask my bridesmaids to go with me and we make all during one session.
Plasterbride, I bought a small planner too from Kino just to record wedding stuff. It's just a normal planner but it's proving to be super-useful to mark down all the appointments and things to do.
haha...ya i agree. i also dun wan to be superstitious, but then wedding is a big occasion, so i thought better to choose a good auspicious date as well just to play safe right and let our minds be more at ease.
oh berry, wow we got same designer, oops, then on same day also, think jeslin will be really busy with the two of us. you are also doing MTM for both gowns? mine i went down to design WG, she drew it up at end of session. so end of Dec going for 1st fit. hope it turns out as I expect. quite worry also since MTM, we wouldn't know outcome n whether gown will look nice on us or not until it is done up. Have u gone to try out their gowns?
yeah, earthsea, a planner really helps. my FH was saying this afternoon when we were tallying our appointments together, we have never had so many appointments filled up to the brim in just one month calendar. hahaha....
Have not done much for my wedding preparation also. However, have taken my wedding photo. Thinking of sourcing for place to go for honey moon, any good place to recommend for the mth of march? Hope to go to places where weather is not too warm. too busy with my work and thus no time to do research.
Oh yah ah! I also didn't realised it! LOL! Good, good! hahaha. Yah, gotta book hotel soon. But, we have tentatively placed a booking with Furama. I don't think aug will be a very popular mth, right? So, I think though there is an urgency to book the venue but the urgency is not as high as if it's a popular mth. Hee... So, you are going to Bows too! Great! Maybe can see u there
Eh, can PM me the details of the AD PG and VG? Are they exp? Santiago is ok lah. Like all BS, can be hard sell too but once you put your foot down, they will know that you're serious about your decision, they will respect it. So, so far so good coz I bargained alot and they know I'm adamant about it. lol..
Yes! In fact that was the first shop (Love & Co.) I went to in my search for wedding bands. I did find a couple of designs i like from there...heard it's part of Soo Kee. And they do customisation too!
Am just thinking if I'm paying a premium just for the brand...I also went to Clarity (thats where he got my engagement ring)...quite a bit of difference in price (cheaper) from Love & Co.
Now also searching around for AD photographers...now that it is Dec, it just seems the wedding is not that far away anymore.. =)
went for my gown fit last night.. PS 2 weeks later.. abit late right.. n i just got news that PG injured his leg will be on MC for a week.. i do hope he recover well soon...
anyway i booked my honeymoon with hb during the last natas fair.. will be going to Italy.. not much choices cos in March there will be another Natas fair so they dun have much packages for march 08 when we went... anyway it will be too late for us to go for the March Natas fair for our honeymoon since we do not want much delay after our AD

Heard good reviews abt Divine and Margaret, don't know much abt Ritz, but nothing beats going down to the shops and trying on the gowns. You'll have fun, don't fret.
For some strange reasons, i keep getting kicked out of the forum...urghhh!
Mage, I have decided not to go with Angel since there isn't that many good comments abt her here. I have originally booked her for 9.30am but recently got an email from her to change the time to 10plus. I think this is after u have contacted her.
I have found a friend who is willing to help me. She is just starting out as a MUA so I thot I give her a try and lend her some support as well. I will be informing Angel by early next week, so you shdn't have any problems if u are engaging her.
Dor, I am with Julia wedding News..
Heard about the incident that it was Julia's AD photographer who left the wedding dinner film/rolls in a taxi and till now, still cannot find. I dunno how they compensate the couple, but heard that the photographer was a hard working one and he was drunk because the bride groom offered him and ask him to join in when the dinner ends..Haven met the photographer_ah liang yet though,but heard that he was nice, not so nice..so depends on our chemistry liao.Dor, you doing the outdoor at Legends? You bought over the package from someone? I was considering to buy over from this couple who had a good deal with Legends.But in the end, I took the Grand Shanghai instead.
I am a christain too, will be holding church wedding+ tea ceremony +dinner..help leh..how to plan..tea ceremony after lunch buffet at church or when my hubby comes and fetch me?
My HB is cantonese too..think must wear kua..but no la..so hot.maybe take studio pictures..
