thanks ashley....a lesson to learn will be neber totally trust dat u are in good hands despite repeated assurance....always remember to double check.....=)


New Member
June> Yup... bought it together with my Proposal ring.. it matches perfectly so can wear together after AD..

I got mine from D'Meyson. They have nice designs and most of their diamonds are certified from as small as 0.14 onwards.. most need to be at least 0.30 to be certified...
Gave me free engraving as well.. hehe..
Go to Bugis's outlet.. PM me if u are interested and I'll let u know who to look for, for good service!


New Member
hi yaya,

hilo productions do what one? you're engaging them for video or photo? i am still in the midst of sourcing...what's your package like?


New Member

Sorry for my late reply...I signed on the last day of November 2007....Hahaha...So that I am entitled to the previous wedding show perks...It was the one and only hotel that we viewed and signed on the spot....


I see...My coordinator is Kaylynn....Erm to what I know...My coordinator mentioned that there is a piano in Vanda ballroom which can be used....I am not too sure abt the one that you mentioned...Maybe you can check with Sen.... =)

Hi Jacelyn

U still looking for curtain shop? There was this chinese variety show on TV on cheap finds in S'pore sometime back. They visited a curtain shop at Ang Mo Kio Ind Park 1. I don't have the shop name but can PM u the address if u r interested.


New Member
Speaking of PS...Eh...
My BS *Sattine does not do evening shots, so all fotos will b crystal clear...
Probably shophouses/waterfall/arty backdrop scenes...not into nature as beri scared of lallang/little creepy crawlies. Furthermore not so adventurous...jus wanna chop chop finish n rest...i hope e indoor shots turn out well...
Wat abt u? Where did u go...do share so tat we hav some ideas...4 those who hav yet 2 go 4 PS...thanz!
Hey May BTB mebe u all can share wat r some items tat r diy-ed by u... n how u give a personal touch so as to make ur wedding memorable.
Anithing frm march in, wedding favours, deco, theme etc...lez spur each other on cos' it's true tat some of us may feel a bit inert...

May we all hav lovely weddings 2 remember by!

I share... if u heard of SCRAPBOOKING, there is an art store in Plaza Sing...called Madewithlove tat sells items 4 scrapbooking. For instance, if u find putting e fotos all in 1 album too boring, u may use specially designed papers + accessories n do a 'photo frame' of ur foto... with use of unique fonts/flowers/beads/ribbons/stickers etc. E mix n match gives it a very eccletic feel...definitely 4 e unconventional brides.
If hung on e wall, really makes e guests feel tat they hav entered into an art gallery.
Waz more, u can use pens 2 describe ur courtship...all waiting 2 b unfold.
(Very popular in e West...a sample of them can b found in 2008 edition of Her World Brides)

Tink its either 4th or 5th storey, near escalator. Popular @ Bras Basah oso offers such materials...

New Member
icyxiaozhu> Yeah... but i didnt buy mine from Bugis actually. I bought from Tampines Century Square.. but the staff there cannot make it loh.. Soo blur and not pro.. we brought ours to Bugis for engraving... and the service is so much more better!

Thumbs up to the sales supervisor who served us..


New Member
hi praisey,
Are u refering to the one with a high collar, deep v neck and ruffled bottom evening gown featured in the magazine? its a contemporary design and pretty too. I can't even shortlist one design that i like for the evening gown, guess the design for bigger size evening gowns are quite limited, some a bit outdated or really plain design....haiz
Hopefully i can lost some weight b4 the gown selection to get my desired gown:<


New Member
I just had my guo da li today! HAha.. very simple.. and done it like 5 mins. The mom didn't come, only hubby and the aunty.

BUt glad another thing is over.

Just to check with u gals, the si dian jing, do i have to wear it during the tea cecremony?


New Member
waverine> where u get the ang bao from its nice....

every thur aussino will have stock cuming in. the towel set is available at PS outlet u gers can try there. they also sell the mugs.

sweethaven> u can try bliss collection. they sell nice bedsheet set too.


New Member
My Bs is Silhouette. They have a tie-up with O studio, so all negotiations I wanna do, have to do it with O studio and not the BS. So anyways, Jaki from O studio says that top up by $1000 then get back all the pics. the best part is, all will be in high res!!
So was really really happy to hear that. I read that some BS die die also don't want to return the soft copy of the unselected pics, which I thought shouldn't be the case. They keep saying want to make your wedding day special but they don't practise what they say. Although I understand that it is becos they are worried that ppl dun top up so much if they get back the pics, but really, topping up by 1k is quite a lot already.


New Member
Hi! I just signed up with Thomson wedding d'sign today during the BOWS bridal show. Anyone signed up for it too? Or had experience with them? N'way, i'm so silly, it's the first BS I been too and i've signed up with them ald. Any comments?


New Member
Hi MT, i have just added u.

Yes i have tried that, fits quite well, better than the EG that my mum picked. I think i look like a peacock. I didn't fancy it. So on 17th jan, i have to finalize by then. Most probably, i will have 1 WG and 2 EG for AD. 1 EG from my own collection.
Whose your co-ordinator from Marriott? Mine is annabel, i shd be in good hands.
Today i met the 5th AD photographer, shd be finalizing by next week.


New Member
hi tissuepaperz, no worries u are in good hand. i signed with them 2 weeks ago after 20 + BS shopping for 3 mths. photoshoot in april. good luck to u!


New Member
Thanks PSH. It's does help. However, do you have any idea if it is necessary for my hubby to personally send the GSL items to my parent's place. As mentioned earlier, I think it is impossible for us to fly back just for that. We are residing in Australia.
Any one has suggestion on how we can do it the 'express' way?? HAHAH!

BTW, may I know what is the meaning of PS? I managed to figure out most of the shorter form... but not this



New Member

and yea, aussino at great world city still have the nuptial sets available in queen size!~

Hi to all,

Many Thanks for the invitation.

My AD &amp; ROM are both on the same day on 07July08.
Dinner at Marina Mandrain, thought the perks are okay.
Dont intend to do any prewedding PS.
Dont have BS, all DIY.
Bought my WG through a thread here.
Havent signed AD photographer, but got someone in mind.
Havent got EG, dont know how? To tailor or not, no plans.
Looking around for MUA. Any recommendations?

New Member
Hi, moments

When i went yesterday at 2plus, all fitting room is full... Where did u go for gown fittings, 2nd floor changing room? Your gown fittings is long.. Haha.. Me only takes 2-3 hrs for my 1st gown fittings.
Guy suit is limited, my hubby takes less than 15 mins to chose. Haha..
Dily Makeup was nice! I've tried my final fittings before the PS on 15th Jan. Xiaoshi had altered my size when i tried two gowns were a bit loose.


New Member
Hi ladies,

My AD is on 23-Nov. Had just made the arrangements for the banquet. Had a hard time before finalizing on the venue. Most of the hotels are either booked or tentatively reserved for some couples.

Anyone with Sophia? Any idea of their services and designs etc? Can share? Thanks.


New Member
Been to Avana. The gowns are really nice. The prices are from $500 to $1,000. I love the beaded ones. However, they are too big for me so the ladies there do not recommend alteration for me as it is too much alteration for beaded materials, for fear of destroying the fabic.
Go check it out. I was also brought to their private showroom at 23rd floor.

If you like sequin stuff, Kakoo at Centrepoint carries dresses in the range of $400 to $700.


New Member
i went for BOWS.
ok lor...
went to see VG and PG and florist/favors and caterers...
not too many of these around...mostly bridal studios.

PG i did meet up with joho at BOWS, nice guy. but very very out of budget. sigh. i wish!!!
and then met a few other PGs ...ok lor...

me also searching for PG/VG.
think all very ex ones. lol.
the affordable ones, i don't really fancy their styles. so mah fan being a picky female. :p


New Member
Hello everyone..

Welcome Lydia, Amanda and Sleepygal. Sleepygal: I faced the same problem when looking for banquet venues. Nov is hot!!!!

Next up will be shoes, gown selection and wedding bands... intending to get our rings to take photoshoot =)
