Hi Gals,

I am also interested to hear from you all the venues that you have been to for outdoor PS. Any nice places besides Botanical Gardens, Changi Beach, Sentosa, Labrador Park, Changi Broadwalk and East Coast? Prefers nature rather than buildings....

By the way, during the Jun school holidays, what are the chances that the above places will be packed with people? Dont think the students will likely want to visit these places except Sentosa and East Coast? I hope the places can have lesser people so that the photographer can have an easier time in taking the photos.

thank for the info, meiling..will get it over the weekend, and seek for more....when hubby n i were mutual friends, he asked me for help, that is to act as his gf in order to 'get rid' an aggressive gal at that time. eventually, we ended up to be the real couple 3 mths later..ha ha ha...

koyoyo, if i remember correctly, my hotel allows burn mp3 cd. bt for march in, preferably to have original..it it to prevent any possible glitch. will nt be nice if march halfway, and the song stop awhile...

Anyone doing church invites besides banquet invites? I'm trying to get ideas besides the usual photo on invites design...

I was just trying to do my photo montage last night on Windows moviemaker and the resolution looks blur. Anyone knows what is the best resolution to use? It didnt look so blur when i try on powerpoint leh.

JJ, I intend to include some ROM & PS photos as well. Maybe u can have an equal mix of ur own photos & ur hubby's. Or have more of your dating photos together

I will have one photo montage and another VG day highlights prob after 2nd march in.

Rach>thanks wor. Haiz, hope you can settle your renov issue soon. But in meantime, try to relax and be happy bride in May.

Kirei>hee, thanks for the lobang again. Think it is slightly cheaper than the corsages sold in Bugis. Maybe can ask if buy more at one time can get discount or not. Then we do another mini MO for corsages in this thread. :p

cyc, you can find me with [email protected] at friendster, facebook, multiply n msn.

lex n uk,
actually those fotos that i uploaded is the edited one. we chose 50 pics altogether. if wanna rechoose then need to pay $50/pic that i change. but i'll definitely get them to edit some pics. my face is like huge in some. that's just me. but i really expected more. lex, i have to agree it was a letdown.. retake PS sure will charge. at least 1k more.

annabella, i only uploaded a few on multiply. feel free to view it. my PG is taken by ben. who's taking yours? rem to let the PG knows what exactly u want. posing or candid. what kinda feel n all. if not will end up like me. gd luck n have a great time!

been busy lately, so keep missing out on the posts. ;)

koyoyo, it's ok to take PS in orchard during weekday, really not so crowded, esp on a Monday.
happy.gif
added u at multiply already.

nec, so nice to have Christmas lights in your photos. I've seen some couples take PS at NUS, but mostly in causal wear.
happy.gif


shybride, thks for pics of the pens, very cute, but think it'll definitely dry up by the time i need, maybe i'll buy it at a later date.
happy.gif


luvz, u have been together for so long, ya, like MeiLing says, a bit like Taiwanese idol drama.
happy.gif


talking of PS, me and HTB met in hospital and first date was in Zouk, so still pondering if we should take pics in these places, think it's a bit strange.

don't be too upset la~. Most likely one year later, we'll shove it under the bed or in the cupboards or something and won't see it again until lightyears later. You've still got AD photos to take and usually I've found that those are the best of the lot - very natural, some candid, overall - it'll capture the moment. Maybe we don't look as "beautiful" as we hope to be la - but as long as the photo captures the mood, ok la. Like I thought the Precious Moment lookalike was really a tender moment - like a young couple on the edge of innocence, then the background is all gardeny...very very nice
happy.gif


Quite honestly I'm not sure about my own photos also! Hahah, at least your gowns are fantastic, mine are still erm... in meters of cloth

Hi thiathia

Yes, now planning to suggest Jun to my studio but am fearful that many of the places that we want to go will be crowded with teenagers who are having their school holidays. Am interested in East Coast Park actually as that was the place where I had my first date with my HTB ;p

Did your photographer say anything about the possible crowds?

So care to share where you and HTB will be going

koyoyo,
yep, after so many yrs, still a student...haven't been inside LT27 for a while, so have no idea how it is now.

Luvz,
my case and your the almost the same...that's why htb wants to go sec sch too take pics...i think its a very nice idea to include your xiondis and jiemeis for the PS at the sch...so significant...hmmm, maybe i can copy your idea...but our sec sch now changed a lot cos it was refurbished

shybride, you also tempting me to buy wedding pens now....we intend to get pens with feathers though....

hey,

just to share a bit of info. Anyone of you shopped at City Plaza at Paya Lebar before? There are a lot of wholesalers there selling gowns, bags, shoes and clothes in general.

My friend bought a nice pair of heels for her wedding at only $60. It could hv cost like 100 bucks else where.

Also saw plenty of dresses for our mothers...not sure abt the prices though.

Can go and have a look if you happen to be in the area. My office is nearby so, have lunch at "Arnold Chicken" once in a while. It's like KFC, or Popeyes, but much much much nicer than either one. I think it has the best fried chicken in singapore now... keke.

hi jule & R&J, my air tic include domestic flight. I flying to Tokyo then to Hokkaido. Then I will tour and travel downward to Osaka and fly out from Osaka. I told my FH that need to apply international licence he keep don't want to believe me haha. My friends who went Jap also told me the ppl there very nice and i know a little bit of Jap so think should be fine =)

Hi clndy & R&J, wow ur wedding day is so eventful. double happiness & triple happiness! clndy, I think a special montage for him will be very sweet. if you or ur friend r well versed in music, might want to write him a song.

Hi JJ, I will be displaying my wedding photos continuously before the banquet start. For first march-in I will show the montage of our childhood photos, dating photos etc. then 2nd march-in I will show video of my morning highlights. depends on individual, some people only play 1 video/montage during the whole banquet. for the march-in montage my PG will be doing for us. For the wedding photos montage I did using the DVD slideshow and it was ok. I think because my wedding photos resolution is very high so it turned out ok. But the file is very big have to burn into a disc.

Hi s'rene, saw ur outdoor photos. veri nice!

Rach < i dun know if u fancy courts furniture... If u r, can apply for the Courts Card and pay by instalments... Or try Ikea? Ikea has very nice furniture at very "decent" price... husband and I are also getting our wardrobes from Ikea...
For painting, how abt painting yourselves...simple painting.... although i am moving in with MIL and HB, we still want to repaint the whole flat as well as do up HB's room...We are taking 2 days leave to paint the house maybe in July... We are taking it as an exercise to do things together...hehehe....Cos we also want to save $$ so doing everything ourselves.... Don't despair, I'm sure God will not leave u in the lurch... take this as a challenge for yr HTB and yrself... And a learning curve to solve things together as husband and wife... look on the bright side ya?

wow.. so many of you going to Japan.
Anyone going to Europe?
Both Europe and Japan are in my top 5 must go places in my life... hee Europe first ba.

Hi JJ, i posted in your mulitply leh. singyee78 is me...fancy u asking me which BS i am with. we shared the same coordinator and designer. hahaha, except that jeslin only design the EG. i'm using their embriodary OTR WG.

Hi CIndy, how about singing a song for your hubby? eg, he stand at the stage, waiting for you and you sing and walk in at the 2nd march in. I think that's very romantic leh. (though it would be much nicer if he's the one who sing and you walk in
happy.gif

Hey R&amp;J, my mum's bday also falls on my wedding. But she's not too keen to announce to all her bday. So we will prob celebrate with her one day earlier.

dear rach, i can empathise u. initially i also have such $$ problems wif my FH. which is y we sort of delay our wedding plans...
sad.gif


but heng ar, his parents forking out money for BS package and dinner. so at least our burden is lightened alot!!

and u knw wat, my mum doesnt even give me dowry. and she doesnt fork out a single cent for me... her reason? she's a housewife and i dun bring money home so she's got no money. BUT guess wat, she can have money to go japan lor... she jus went japan in late march... so, imagine u in my shoes, my own mother says she got no money for me, yet she can happily go japan. JAPAN TOKYO leh!!!!

in any case, cheer up!!! God bless you!!

everything will work out jus fine for you and for all of us!!!

stay happy, at least you dun have to be like me or green, camp under SLE or BKE.
happy.gif


slowly ba, hopefully you can get the $2k rent and at least it will help tide you over for a while.

Relax and dun give up!!!

it's a waste to give up jus cos of the $$ issues now. im sure there are ways to salvage the situation!

btw, y u say GE loans interest are horrible? i tot they offer the cheapest interest rates as compared to other banks? hmmm i wanted to get a GE loan de, but after read wat u said, i've doubts liao.

providencia, HTB and I have been together for 8 yrs, that isn't very short either I guess. But how come you thought it's more than 10?

koyoyo, if you guys are movie fanatics, you can try and see if you can hv your PS at the "Cathay Gallery".

I'll try to upload my wedding songs collection to my blog. But I'll be a little slow coz busy munching the books for exam. *Burp....

Just another updates. I've bought my wedding shoes, 2 pairs. Paid less than $150 in total. The pics are on my multiply blog.

For those who are new to this discussion, do add me to your multiply (ID : jomeow) and facebook ([email protected]).
