Hi Michelle! Depends on whether you are having a bridal package. Most of the girls here sign on a package which covers alot of things, then you don't need to source separately. If you are like me, very kiam, then it will be quite ala carte.
There are many good makeup artists who advertise on 88db.sg. For PG & VG, depends on the style you like, and of course....the budget!
oh, sotonglet, I went to see the gowns at justgowns.biz. Tried on a few and they are really nice. Rental starts from $128 to $300+.
Or you can go to this shop above Bugis Village's McDonald outlet (Next to McDonald's drink counter,go up the staircase, 2nd level.) They have rental of WG at $300. Not bad too.
For EG, Blum's affiliate, Miso at Marina Sq has nice gowns too. A little too glitzy and glittery for me. They are affordable at about $600+ considering the handiwork.
Based on your PG's advice, it can be quite rush for you. But I may be wrong as I am sure he must have done this many times.
nelle, the GSS will start in May, probably near to the end of the mth. If I'm not wrong, there is a website on it.
meiling and nec, ya lor, I feel like banging my head agst the wall. Shd hv bought the bracelet then. Simply beautiful. It was so heart wrenching to step out of the outlet without it. Since then, Iâ€™ve been sourcing around for something similar. But all the replies Iâ€™ve gotten so far was a 3 carat tennis bracelet like tat one will cost at least 12K.
Oh god, help me, help me. Grant me a big big discount!!!
aiya not me... hee hee hee....is my friend who sign BS without PS and sign another studio for PS alone.... is not 1950... nothing to do with them... is another one...
then the PS they sign.. the shop say no return of soft copy...unless u take ALOT of pic (their extra pic is like $60-70/extra pic) then can consider maybe give back the soft copy... let say she only take the basic package with 30pic ... then no soft copy of the selected one even the package say included the 30 pic....
abit unfair..... hee hee no prob no prob... think dun confuse your.... wait and see how's she negoiate with the PS studio....
LoL ok.. it's your friend then Have they paid the full sum? If not, maybe it might be worthwhile for them to forfeit the desposit le .. especially if they're going to take a lot of photos.. I mean, I've heard of couples who top up like thousands of dollars for the extra pictures.. which is kinda... pricey..
nelle, i agree lor...have videography to film down your big day moments very nice ma
Wah...u even thot of not wanting a PG wor. haha.
You r the most beautiful woman of the day leh. Muz take down for evidence ma...keke
Well, i understand the priorites of people differ. Some ppl dun really like to take pix. For me i like to take pix.. to any where i'll take and always bring a camera to where i go...haha...
Rach, tks for your info. Have you decide your BS and which hotel are you engaging for the dinner? I am in the midst of planning for my solemnization on Jun 2008. I will be probably doing the solemnization at Furama riverfront (yet to be confirm; meeting the co-ordinator this fri).
Hi Queenie, I am not registered with mulyiply. However will soon.... heheh. I'll add u once I register myself.
PSH: Sorry to hear what had happened to ur gfr. I am not able to comment on that as I am make-to-keep my wedding gown. However, if I know that my BS allow other brides to try my gown without my permission. I'll sue them right to their a_s!
Crispy> may i ask which hotel you having your wedding at?
im so angry!!!!! my damn office is changing some darn system and everyone has to work ot for dat bloody new system prep.
so i have to work late everyday for the whole month of april!!
damn it!!! and my PS is on 5th May!!! how???

anyone, i've jus created Multiply account.... add me!!! my id is ahnetsan.... add me!!!
nelle, so envious, good financial and makeup skills, beauty and brains.. what more can a man ask for? I never know where my money goes, like MeiLing,I also got jialat savings acct.
I'm only debt-rich.
Hee hee, MeiLing, time to cut down on your Coach purchases.
Sotong, nelle, i'm skipping VG too (camera shy), but pre weddings and AD is a must.
nec, u are so well-endowed ya. Abt the ring,i need to dig my records, we supplied our own loose diamonds and got the jeweller to set it into the trilogy setting. Cost of setting the diamonds abt 1k for white gold.
U also stay in West? Which part of west r u staying. Me staying in Jurong West.
Both my fh & I were teochew, luckily my MIL didnt insist us to do all before dawn. (at least can sleep longer)
My auspicious timing given was bet 7am - 11am
My schedule is something like this
8.30am - fetch bride
9.00am - depart for outdoor photoshoot
10.30am - reach groom house, tea cememory
12.30pm - reach new house
I hear from my fortune teller. The timing only apply during fetch bride n reach groom house. The rest nevermind.
Lex, different ppl lead different life so dun compare yeah... i am sure girls like us who strive for a career n have occasional high-tea are equally happy... no europe trip nw, can always go again in future...
koyoyo, i bet ur fren'z pic will look gd at the flyers. if u get permission from her, rem to post n share with us ok.
hmmm, am not quite sure what is the topic going on now...a bit of confused...
To add my 2 cents worth, personally I think pre-wedding, AD PG and Vg are impt...Pre-wedding prolly cos I'd hardly have the chance to walk around S'pore in a wedding gown and to capture beautiful images...and the other 2 to capture moments of the special day whereby HTB and I officially become one
xinglin how much is the crystal bracelet? my fren getting married in july, need some ideas too. and yep today was part 2 of my photo shoot! today's weather good, everything went well!
sotong the seamstress stays near serangoon mrt. actually yeah i also dunno pre wedding photos for what haha.. i guess it's just something most people do when getting married. but it's fun! more memories of wedding shared with hubby mah
nec, yah lor, c or d cup no need stick on bra liao!! but anyway i got nubra from la senza.. it's good! i bought same cup size as my usual.. think it's ok leh.. got help quite a bit
nelle you really thrifty! your hubby muz be feelin very heng hee hee
jfaith, oh so lucky, i never won anything in my whole life.
mei, read in the forum that a Mrs Teo in Blk 85 Batok North Rd #01-124, 6444 6470 is highly recommended. U might want to check it out since u live in the east. I'm also on the lookout for cheap and gd florist.
congrats! where is the flat located at? why did you decide not to wait for BE?
Meiling and Flora,
Do you think if say 'heng heng' manage to get a flat for the BE, will there be enough time to apply for HLE after we have selected the flat? I haven't applied for HLE before. In addition, is there a big diff in the max loan granted between the actual value and value stated on the HDB website when you try the online computation?
green> but I'm paying the restaurant separately for the buffet leh.. I'm paying the normal rates at Ellenborough Cafe.... cannot use ah?? its stated there??? huh...
Gina> coz EG u wear the longest in the nite..hence more wu hua to MTM EG.. WG will only appear like a few times.. hehhee... btw I sad liaoz la... my WG i'm supposed to be the 1st to wear... OTR.. now...somebody changed to it on her 2nd fitting...she loved it at 1st sight....so i'll be wearing an old WG liaoz.. sob sob....and and and.... sigh.... u all go read my multiply... u'll know why i sooo sad liaoz... sigh sigh sigh... go see my trial fitting comments..... sigh.....
I prefer to take OTR if there's suitable one, haha save time. But my studio only has < 6 OTR EGs, unbelievable right? None of the color suits me.
I asked to have my EG's length chopped off with no trail! Haha I'm siao one, I want to move around easily.
So the buffet is not part of the hotel's ROM package? Then I can borrow you the card for your ROM buffet!
It'll help you save about $200. Shhhh dun let my bf know.
I just called up to check on terms and conditions. Card discount is applicable to 1 table. 20% discount for 4 to max 10 ppl on a single table.
Cheer up gal! Dun feel so disappointed, wedding is supposed to be a happy event. My WG is also wore by other gals. Actually all studios will let other gals wear our OTR gowns, some even let other gals wear our MTM gowns. If u really mind, maybe u can MTM your WG? There's still enough time to MTM. Even if the WG is wore by other gal, u will still look gorgeous in it!
For my case, I dun have any outdoor PS gown I like from the limited selection, so I just anyhow choose. Makeup isn't well-done too. Well I try to take it easy, so still feeling fine.
Any masks to recommend? It's cheaper to buy off counters and do it on our own. Hehe gotto save $$, plan to buy resales flat.
I have some suggestions for your wedding shoes!!
I went 3 places.. and in the end manage to get 1 pair of shoes for my 2 gowns!! And all the shoe shops i went, the shoes all <$100!!
1. FairLady @ Shaw Centre #03-33/34.. There is this brand call ViVie in the shop.. They also sell mens shoes..I think currently they are having sale there.. =) You can take a look at the ViVie website at http://www.vivie.com.sg/
2. I went to Robinson @ RafflesCity and there were some shoes displayed near the cashier where they stated that the brand is oni in Robinson..Quite similar design to FairLady and cheaper.
3. Lastly, is LoeandBehold by Belinda. You can check out the designs of the shoes at http://www.loeandbehold.com.sg/. I bought my shoes from her.. Her shop aka house is located at Sixth Ave.. Very nice lady.. Was recommended by friend and went wif her for her shoe searching.. and I love her 'blink' 'blink' shoes!!
wow the thread is moving so fast! I am still at the cakes and now we are moving to slimming haha.
hi Valerie, a 40kg cake is about 3-4 tier depends on how they arrange. Normally 10kg ca serve about 100-120 guests. I have seen most people doing 3 tier here not so sure about 4 tier maybe difficult to do here unless base very big? I will be changing mine to something else because parents say dun want to serve cakes. Still negoitiating.
hi piyo21, me also teochew my timing about same as yours but before 8am bridegroom have to come le.
hi jac, if dun have then an chuang and do all things with where you will be staying for the time being or your hubbie house as a "symbolisation". Still have to do I think or can check with your shifu if you have.
waxie> which BS u from?? sooo nice!! But my BS is as long as they are before me, they can take it.... sigh... sooo sad now........... so any thing in exchange for ur MTM?? i still not satisfied with my EG.. so I'm going to MTM.. keke..
me too, i've given up all hope alrdy, if u see my fitting photos nxt time, u know wat i mean hahaha...i feel exactly like u...when i meet other brides or my frens, i feel like crap, i look so fat, undermaintained in their company n dun work in d city wif no money to spend on luxury items
even my face looks like shit... if u r a giant cupcake den i'll look like a mudpie
u must b referring to me cos i committed abt $2K worth of extra photos wif my BS...
d thing abt those shops r juz out to squeeze u dry...if ur pic havent pay for d full amt, den perhaps it's wiser to forfeit d deposit now rather than to part wif a huge sum of $ later
hehehe...i think i'll still have to wear a CS based on my fh n my future mil's suggestion, perhaps get d tailor to hide my flaws or create a more flattering cut for me im thinking of going to misse n mama at international plaza for my CS
congrats on getting ur flat! where's ur lovenest located?
u can try la senza, wacoal etc, there r some selling online, it looks gd but i duno whether if it's reliable...
i can understand how u feel...wah, for 3 carat worth of diamonds for $4K is really cheap leh, my 5-D 0.42 which adds up to 2 carat is alrdy $3K...somemore urs is a classic design
btu dun worry, im sure dat u'll b able to find a similar or even better deal soon during d gss
wah ur office so gd one? still can play wii during office hrs? heheh...it's a gd form of exercise wor
too late....3 more coach bags will b arriving nxt week...but i made a promise not to buy so many n so frequently cos i juz paid my new comp in full...n oso gotta save for wedding
like wat flora bliss had said it shdnt b a prob cos it's q fast in processing, usually abt 2 weeks
oppsss, i havent try d online computation yet so im not too sure, mayb u can claify wif hdb on dat
