Hi ultimatemocha, sometimes if you engage a videographer, they can help you to do the photo montage as well. Perhaps pay abit more ba. Just check with them when you discuss with them abt their packages. Maybe you can check with you BS as well? Cos my BS is helping me to do my photo montage.
hi nelle n flora_bliss,
u all went to chk out d shop alrdy? wah...dat's fast, think i shd make it a pt to go down tis wkend...scarly everything cannot wear now starting to feel glittery abt d whole wedding thingy...getting cold feet as i havent even go down to try d gowns at my BS
d 5% downpayment in cash is applicable only for dbss...if not, d 10% can b paid out frm cpf
Flora, yes. It is pretty. For tea ceremony hor? Have you try it on? See if the color brings out your features most.
MeiLinG, they are open on Sat till 4pm.
Jac, are you talking about purchase of a new flat from HDB or old flat? Cos for old flat, I always thought that they take 20% 1st (ie. 10% from each of you), then they see how much you left in your a/c b4 calculating how much you need to borrow from them.
Stnov, its really the hotel fault how can they brush it off like that? So horrible service! Can imagine the embarrassment of not enough tables for your guests. Totally agree that you should write in or better still make an appointment to see the GM straight!
I can't have photo montage as there's not enough place in the ballroom but I'm still having the cake cutting as well as the champagne pouring and toasting. I'm crossing my fingers that my guest won't be bored.
I have signed up with Grand Mercure Roxy. Sorry, perhaps I did not make myself clear. I mean we had paid the deposit for the banquet but we need to let the hotel know which price/menu we will be taking. I am not refering to which dishes and wedding wishes to choose for the dinner (but can give these factors a thought earlier). These will be confirmed at a later date.
I'm talking about new flats from HDB. Very confusing leh. I read then it seems that for HDB loan, can pay 10% from CPF. But if taking bank loan, need to pay 5% cash (compulsory) and the remaining 5% from CPF.
hi Emily, I am doing my GDL same time i am doing my ROM, which is this coming february. so before the solemnization, we'll do it just before the ceremony. And i've spoken to my mom who have agreed to simplify the gift exchange to just exchange of angpows and candles and liquor. U can do it just 1 or 2 days before ur wedding, it doesn't have to be well in advance of actual day. Just talk to your parents i'm sure they will be understanding and things will work out. And don't think of it as waste money, cos it sets the right tone for ur marriage in the eyes of ur parents, especially if they are traditional.
Hi PSH, i don't have PS, so not having those things don't really apply. Hey for church decor, u ask sattine to do? or u ask ur caterer to do?
i'm also looking for renovation loan. anyone got contact for the Hitachi reno loan? What do we look out for in the loans?
I'm planning to go to Bedok Jetty with our fishing rods for our PS. Have also shortlist Botanic Gardens - would like to have a green backdrop.
how about the singapore flyer? should be opening soon this quarter. it would frame a nice singapore skyline. hmm what other new bldgs? how about the national museum? the new extension has very nice spaces inside, but not sure if they would allow us.
town area for night shots? hmm.. clarke quay? Arab street? i like the scale of the shophouses there. but it may be very dim at night. or the usual night scene shots at raffles place? merlion? esplanade?
If you choose bolder colors for cheongsam (e.g. dark red), you can still wear it for D&D, formal functions. etc. That was what I was thinking. My partner secretly wish I wear one everyday! duh...
You are right on the changing of attire. Cos in the old days, the bride don't go back to her parents's house till at least 3 days later. Reason is the travelling distance (last time they have to walk, ride horse, cross river etc.). Therefore the change of clothes, we call it the tea dress now. The groom need not necessary wear the same suit. Another reason is, the woman belongs to the man's family now so she cannot suka suka go back Niang Jia. So go back, is a much casual affair.
So when the bride leave her parents's house after the groom fetches her, she is (supposedly) wearing the gown (in the old days, will be the red kua), so bride and groom serve tea in the wedding gown (or kua) and suit to the groom's parents/relatives. Then they change clothes either at groom's place or their new place, then they go to bride's parents's house.
Having said that, things have evolve. Only cantonese brides wear the kua.
In my opinion, I think that the Hotel should be responsible and not just brush it off. We are paying like 1k each per table, with a total its 30K and that IS a lot of money for one night therefore we expect good service and not such idiotic pissed off banquet manager bullsh*t. I feel that the GM should do something about this. At lease in a form of compensation or something... you should not take this lying down...
Yo!! Hello all Oct brides,
I am new to this forum. Does anyone of you know of a good makeup artist for actual wedding day? Heard about Ponnie Hsu but there are mixed comments about her... Hope to get some expert advise on who to pick ;-)
sleepygal -ic,that explains it.
jovin- my BS PG does it but will have additional charges. I knw thats the standard but will prolly outsource another to do it since u never knw if the PG does a bad job, another work done elsewhere will nt aggreviate the entire situation. Not that i dun trust my PG but one never knw until the entire work is done. Hopefully no glitches for everybody!
Hi Irene, If you want I can intro my MUA for you. She is from TWN, now working in SG. Very happy with her services for my ROM and already get her for my AD 4th Oct 08. She is very friendly and flexible. My friend also get her services as jie mei before and she is also very happy with her services.
MeiLinG, my mum is the seamstress. I have yet to ask, she not enthusiastic about making it though. She says she scared of destroying the fabric. Cos one wrong cut, the whole fabric is gone.
In that case, you must make a really grand CS, with sequins/beads/shiny threads, or even a sweeping rain.
