hi kioko, if u r the kind who will haf red patches after ur facial it is best to go earlier.. (depending on how long ur redness will take to clear up). actually u can go to those shops at chinatown tat sells wedding stuff n buy those GDL/an chuang packages frm them, saves u the trouble
happy.gif


hi Bride2008, my an chuang will be done by my auntie, by right an chuang (n shu tou) shld be done by a hao fu qi auntie

Welcome back, ladies. Anyone joining the anlene orchard mile? So much talk about sales and purchases. I am going to orchard this afternoon to embrace the gss atmosphere.

Hi nelle, both dates are fine at the moment. Drink more water and eat healthily. The weather's really bad nowadays.

Hi nec, you are really very brave. Whenever I am in Malaysia or BKK, I will make sure I bring bags without any openings to prevent pick pocket from attacking me. Also I make sure the bag is always in front, not behind me at all times. Cos if I really get pickpocketed, I won't be as brave as you to fight back.

hello gals, been pretty busy settling stuffs..

Kioko, i know wedding preps are frustrating.
happy.gif

for bride side, the link provided by rach is very useful. For invites, mine is also 2 languages, friends and colleagues will write in english. As for relatives, my hubby gotten his uncle to help to write the names mostly in chinese.

I also have not gone for final fitting yet. my final fitting is on 7th june. Usually finally fitting is around 1 week before AD.

As for meeting up with your hotel coordinator. I already had my discussion. Discussion on ballroom setup, decor, themes, menus, the process. The coordinator will brief through what will happen on that day. Dont worry, because the coordinator is usually very experience.

Discussion with coordinator is not doing rehearsal. No need to bring any CDs along. If you need a session to test your CDs and montage is a seperate appt that you need to arrange with them.

Facial is not a must. But i am having mine 6 days before my AD. Colour of the hair, depends on you ba. For me, I am not doing anything.

Hope these advise helps.

neko> its not the mum.. its a couple.. if either of the parents are not ard, then will try to find a pair of very blessed and loving couple to comb for you....

also heard that if our parents didnt comb when they get married, then they are not qualified to comb for us also.. and if comb, its both bride and comb need to comb together at the same time.. at respective own house....
Means groom should be at his parents house... either his parents of a couple comb for him... then bride at her parents house.. or house that she used to live in before marriage, and get a couple to comb for her... say like 3am or 5am in the morning.. comb together.. its the couple holding the comb together to comb.. not just one person....

hi gals... I more lazy. getting all the wrist corsages, pinned corsages and MUA fm the bridal shop; getting invitation cards, ang bow box and guestbook fm the restaurant. But then, stil got other things 2 settle...

hi s'rene... paiseh I asked regarding cost cos initially we also tot of going JB. It's cheaper and there's more gowns to change. After seeing your PS, I wonder how much you spent. It’s a good choice 2 go there man. We didn’t go cos no car to drive there. Inconvenience. Keke. Btw, I like your shoots taken by the boss.

Hi qunqun... u drove to JB to buy your GDL stuff?

Hi FSS... I PM u a florist contact which I used for my ROM. She included few more flowers without adding charges and make sure my flowers are "latestly" imported ones. But mayb it's 2 late cos u hv gotten ur church's? Keke...

We r not doing photo montage cos my hubby dun hv much childhood photos. tot jus need to scan the photos n then use powerpoint or something can liaoz? tt's what a nov BTB friend is gg 2 do. Good luck!!

My status...
Going to meet all the jie meis tml to go through the AD schedule and assign their roles so that we do not need to think of their parts liaoz.

Have inform invited friends and gotten 90% of replies liaoz. But wil only do seating arrangments one wk b4 AD. Pre-ampt last min fly rate.

We are still looking for our future nest but got backup plan liaoz. *headache*

Btw, what will your mothers be wearing for AD? Any ideas? Trying to help my poor mom here cos she does not know what to wear. She wants something which covers her arms. Still hv not found something nice. Any recommendation on where she can find suitable ones?

Hi ladies, for those who r sourcing for furniture pls DO NOT go to this shop called CO'ZY furniture at Furniture Mall.

they were supposed to deliver my wardrobe n bed today n I even called them on Thurs to confirm that the furniture r coming n they told me yes, they will arrive betw 2pm to 4pm. but only the bed came n by 4.30pm the wardrobe still have not arrive. when i called them they had the cheek to tell me that due to some "miscommunication" betw the store n factory, they have not fabricate my wardrobe!! WTH! n when the sales person who served us previously called, he had to cheek to raise his voice at me n talk to me in an impatient tone. I'm extremely pissed with them.

Hi gals. Nelle, you better take care. My sis and dad oso down with flu and cough. Both lost their voice. Every nite I got to boil those chinese herbal tea/soup for them to drink.

Prov and nec, welcome back. Glad you both enjoyed your trip.

Mary, I'm not really a shopper. Usu will only go shopping when I have an agenda. But I'm hoping to get some good deals for home furnishing items during this GSS.

I am not doing the comb hair ritual... 1st, cos i dun stay with my dad and mum already pass away... 2nd, MIL and FIL divorce already... so hubby and myself decide to sleep instead... I am a Christian, so to me have dun have also ok... the rest, I leave it in the hands of God... kekeke..
But for combing of hair, needs a woman who is very bless and good life to comb... there's a specific timing to comb in accordance to yr HB and yr birthdate and time...so must go choose a auspicious time...And rach is correct that both the bride and groom must coordinate... meaning must comb at the same timing but at each other's home....

straylamb>Hee, thanks for sharing. The meh meh look cute. Can ask you how the stay at your hotel in Lushan was? I stayed at Florance Villa (http://www.florance.com.tw) when I was in Chingjing. Oh, don't mind, can share your itinerary? Where did you go before and after Lushan? For me, we hired a taxi to bring us from Chingjing to Hualien, via Taroko Gorge.

Kirei>Think depends on how traditional the family is? For me, the parents never say anything so I'm thinking can skip. :p

Hi ladies!

Been so busy with wedding preps and home reno lately. Getting more and more stressed up as the big day draws nearer...

Kioko,
It's not really a must to go for a facial. I'm not going, but will be doing facial mask myself. As for hair colour, i didn't touch up since can still see a little bit of the colour.

Lara, does the furniture store has a customer service line? Maybe you can call them to complain and get them to deliver the wardrobe asap.

thias, i had my GDL today too. My hubby reached very early, at 8am coz my mum said he has to return back to his place before 9am. Glad that it's finally over. Next week is also my last working week. I will be taking one month's leave too. If i rem correctly, you're gg Europe for your HM too, right?

Belleryn: Can pass us contact of your mum's tailor?

Piyo1818: Thank you so much! Its not too late! Just in time! So far only my church florist confirmed. But my wedding day bridal bouquet, car deco etc i dont have a florist yet. I dont wana use my church florist for this bit, coz i want to find a specialist florist for it. My church florist good with church bit, but not bridal stuff specialist.

Praisey: When I told my HTB about you giving up on photo montage, he laughed! He say very cute. But can i ask you, if you dont show photo montage, then what sorta things you showing during the dinner? How many guests you have?

BBIguana: You know who I am hor? Hee. Maybe I should ask you to teach me the wrist corsages. Actually where did you learn how to make? So talented! And thanks for the shoes contact (loeandbehold), I'll arrange to go down after i settle the more time-pressing stuff.

UPDATE:
So happy my artist passed me my caricature today
happy.gif
I can go print my church invites tommorrow! Finally.

QUERY:
Any gals know where to get wedding accessories to match hairdo and gowns(eg. tiara, necklace, bracelets)? As some of you might know, I do not have a bridal package, Thus, I want to buy some just in case my tailor and/or make-up artist never match accessories for me. Just in case.

Hi belleryn,

I have some suggestions for your wedding shoes!! :D

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. You can go to Robinson to take a look.. Saw some nice shoes there recently..

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!! ;) Happy Shoe Shopping!! =)

Hi Piyo1818,
You can bring your mum to CK Tang? My mum bought her evening gown from Daniel Yan. =) Although it was sleeveless but can cover up wif shawl.. =)
