Jac, I think hor for the location 60k too much esp when so much reno needed to be done. Can go check at the going price around tat area type of flats in hdb and re neg. I think the owner yi xiang tian kai.
nec, I just came back from missy and mama. The price range is from 300+ for long CS. The workmanship is nice, but hor they have limited material to choose from. I wanted a black lace on chilli red satin CS cannot find a lace I like inuff to part my money. Also Lucy, said my figure not suited for classical cut CS. T.T
oh oh oh... FH just massaged me the shop got this E VS2 0.56 diamond for 2.8k. Worth getting????
don't be upset by your coordinator.. After all, this is going to be your BIG day.. you deserve to keep trying until you find the right gown that you want.
It's not unreasonable to find that you don't like a lot of their gowns. Cheer up ok... if you want some "support".. we can all go cheong the BS see who can outbitch who... kekekekek... I doubt your coordinator can put on a funny face when confronted with so many of us ^
I try to make it for the outing too! It's gonna be on a Friday right??
yes, as of now, we can afford to wait. Ya, I'm predicting the market will go down some time soon....How much was your reno?
I agree that $60k COV is way too high considering its in Woodlands and that the hse requires full reno. I'm actually thinking of not hiring a ID (when we get a hse) cos feel like doing the design myself then hire contractors to do it accordingly. So wondering if can save some $$ by not hiring ID...
Sotong, I think he really yi xiang tian kai...initially he thought he can get $490k but the valuation was too low and i heard from agent that he was very disappointed with the low valuation.
Wah, most of you seem to be getting CS? Which part of the wedding are you going to wear it for?
Sotong, by the way, I read somewhere that the cut of the diamond is the most impt of the C's. It determines the value of the diamond.
no worries...u r d paying customer n it's once in our lifetime, of cos u got d rite to ask for wat u want cos u want d best...dun care abt them, all they want is convenience...like wat lex said, if they dare to b funnie, call us...we'll go there n support u
sotong i agree with jac.. other than carat, the cut + clarity + colour all very important.. cos these 3 things determine how shiny the diamond is.. that's why brilliant rose & destinee diamonds are so much more expensive.
jac, my reno stands at $42k now.. excl furniture, doors, aircons.. : /
Yah lor tinky
Imagine if you go shopping and you want to buy a $1000 gown.. you notice their service is sure very fab one ma.. because we're paying a premium! In this case, what they are selling is their service, since we don't get to keep the gowns what.
Don't be upset by the silly woman la... Maybe she woke up late today, kenna scolding by boss so grumpy nia.
SotongLet, i wonder what the open infront type or the aline type CS look like. hmm..
Agree that cut is impt for diamonds as a well cut diamond can enhance the colour and hide inclusions. However the proportions is impt too, most of the round diamonds available these days have near perfect proportions. So go check out the diamond tmr, if u happy with it, then buy it lor.
i've alrdy pm u her contact but her spree is over, hopefully she has some excess bags to sell...which bags r u looking at?
dun!!!! i think u shd wait cos it's not a MUST BUY flat...i dun think u shd pay so much COV given d condition is of d flat...though it's convenient, u must think of how much more $ u gona invest for reno on top of d COV, usually d COV paid is non recoverable...so it's not worth it
my fren actually paid abt $400+ for her long CS...she got her own fabric frm china...gorgeous red wif sexy high silts....nice
ok ok, i'll try to cut down on my bags...hehehe, hope i can...i alrdy bought more than 20 bags (small n big) tis yr
i appoint u our long-term organiser for gatherings so everything will come to u to coordinate liao....thank u thank u i put it down on my calender le
omg...i carat...wah, gona chop off ur fingers liao....so envy...i must protest to my fh too, i've wanting a 1 carat too but it's off his budget...my 3/4 carat alrdy cost him $7K
wat style does she recommend? actually was thinking to drop by on gd fri but i think it wld b better to do so after my gown selection so dat i can better coordinate d colours n design, i was actually looking for an unconventional design esp at d bottom
i think d diamond is a gd buy...but must chk out d cut
at least a v gd cut ok?
try to make it for d gathering cos u missed it d other time le...den u can go tgr wif nec
oh i intend to buy d CS for tea ceremony or sending off guest, i havent decide when to wear cos i'll b lending 1 frm my BS
lost, i didn't wear the nubra for fitting at all.. hmm u think about it ba..
sotong, is it your 1st time to taiwan? it's my 3rd time you can get nice cheap clothes at wu fen pu.. it's a wholesale market but they also sell small quantities.. cheaper than the night markets. Bring umbrella & jacket.. cos it's quite rainy in may.. my 1st trip was in may.. rained & rained..
meiling, contact received. thanks!! eh..i cnt rem the name, bt i saw it before. if i am not wrong the design was nt available sometime last dec. the staff cnt be sure if it is going to appear agn.
i know nothing abt diamond cut, cnt even rem the carat. so i cnt comment on that. our wedding bands was bought after we saw few places and few tries. we din actually compare coz we know nothing..hahah..maybe we have been cheated..in any case, i have been wearing it together with the proposal ring.
shybride, who is your id/ contractor?
jac, the cov abit too high lei...mine oso need full reno bt dun nd to pay so much.. mine is 9th floor (highest is 13), corner. bt take note mine is hougang area. but walking distance to hougang mrt. think woodland more established area rite? either u pay lower cov or lok out for more choices.
is it a must to change to kua/ cs during send-off? tot commonly wear EG?
no prob...oh d design no longer available le? perhaps u can consider getting it frm d forum sellers cos some of them r selling older models, i juz got myself 2 new design signature stripe n oso 1 small pouch frm d spree ard $900+
no, it's not a must to change into a CS or kua but i wana do so...
i like wu fen pu oso but i got lost there...hehe, i wana eat d xiao chi, i missed d yummy food
Jule, thanks, i can wait. AD on 26Jul, so anytime before that is fine. my email is [email protected]
wow everyone looking for shoes already, i got a white one for my ROM in Jan, so hopefully will be able to use it for AD. Ya i think a silver one will be able to match both WG and evening gowns, so for those who want to save some can consider that. i got mine from john little marina square, cheap cheap...robinson cityhall has some nice shiny ones too.
no lah, i wont b tempted in dat lingerie dept cos i got no asset to flaunt so no motivation to buy anything there ^5...i love d ma la huo guo at d basement....simply delicious ~ hotpot at chongqing ~ yum yum
wah....i only went once, will b going down again tis sunday...must b exciting n i bet u found ur dream gowns le...i havent found mine yet...stressed
yeah~ will be taking out 2 wedding gown (MTM and the other one for 1st march in), evening gown and tea dress, for photoshoot, will have another evening gown and outdoor photoshoot will be another wedding gown.. hehe.. total 6 gowns.. but may want to change the outdoor photoshoot gown..
anyone using andrew tay as PG? cos i just found out his wife also does makeup for weddings. given that andrew is so nice, i think his wife will be very nice too! too bad i found out too late.. oredi got my MUA ..
I'm not a regular in this thread as you can tell. But i think i mentioned before that im also a 27th Dec BTB!
I am currently sourcing for tailors or ready-made dresses for my bridesmaids - 8 of them. Any recommendations? I really want them to be in the same colour and fabric becoz i think it will look nice on photos, so i thot i should pay for their dresses.
Any thoughts or ideas on how to keep the cost to less than $100 for each dress???
thanks for your input! ok. i will also check out mrs teo. whoever checks her out first will just give feedback here i guess.
eh, monkeymuffin, do you think the last 3 "good feedback" post about that florist in our BS thread are faked? Very suspicious leh. All are from new users and only 1 post. I just didn't want to say anything in that thread for fear of starting an 'online war'. ha ha.
hey gals, 1 idea.. maybe u wanna see how your EG turns out first? cos i had wanted to make CS at first too.. but after i tried my EG with full makeup & hairdo during PS, i fell in love with the EG and decided wanna wear the EG for a longer time during the banquet (ie from 2nd march in to saying byebye)
