Must see the grade and the size of the diamonds provided, and the gold used in the setting.

Basically white gold value is worth that much when they are being sold in the jewellery shop. The diamond with international certification beyond 0.5C will have a resale value. Yellow gold is currently at its high price.

Other than that. If you are going to wear it often enough after using for wedding, then I think it has its "worth". But If you going keep it in a drawer or safe, then errr.....

This is sotong's 2 cents' worth only hor.. ^^"

Hi erlina, I agreed with sotonglet. You have to differentiate the needs and wants at this critical moment where $$ is very important.

Unless u have lotsa extra $$ to spare, otherwise, save it for the future bah...

agree with pin&jie
unless ur in laws or u rich, otherwise, i think its not worth it to pay so much for diamonds... i feel that got to be practical in utilising our hard earn $. that's my POV.

if everything diamond sure cost a bomb.

Hi Erlina,

I agreed that 10k is abit too much. And in your list there are 2 pair of earrings. But if you afford why not?

Diamonds wont go outdated anyway. And even if you dont wear it often, its good to have a set of nice accessories for future functions.
Thats my thinking.
;p

Mei, for me i think the tablets are not bad.. i see some difference on my face
happy.gif
Maybe it depends on individual. Mei, the accessories i bought only 1 necklace look nicer on me.. but the necklace is too long coz want to wear as choker, now im wondering how to shorten it.

Oh so thats the reason why must wear pyjamas ah.. My mum and aunt also insist i buy one set for my hubby so i bought one. So the pyjamas wear the night before AD or on AD night??

Ivy: Just saw your gown...Think it's quite pretty! Nice shoes to go along too...You should wear it and take photo! Then we can see how you look also!

Erlina: Sorry ah, I don't have much experience about jewellery and all of that...But I guess like the others' say, it's important to make the money's worth...So if you will wear it often, and don't mind spending it, then why not...

Ivy: Maybe guys don't know how to appreciate lahh...Your HTB ok with it right? Then ok already lor! Do take a photo of you in the gown if possible la! :D

so far my mum din mention anything on pail and bathtub and stuffs.... Hopefully she will not!

YL:
oh dear, tat's a bad news -_-" Guess we gotta forgo some friends liao... sigh...
 
Crown,
My mum is giving me nothing for chinese dowry. Hehe I'm fine with it.

My 2 cents worth, do u think u should filter off some of parents' & in-laws' comments? Eg. maybe you shouldn't impose your MIL's comment (what to get for drowry) on your mum, and vice versa? If I tell my mum what she should give for my drowry, I bet my mum will be angry with me one based on her personality.

Erm I have no big issue from mum & in-laws side because I only consult each side on their own things. Eg. GDL is done by my in-laws, so I ask in-laws to decide on the GDL date. My method may not be the best, I'm just giving u a suggestion becos I see u getting headaches over differing advices. I'm lazy to "entertain" differing views, so I tend to filter here & there hehe.

I hope my mum won't mention so many things for GDL & drowry. Who know in the end, we have to buy those items ourselves :p

If I'm u, I'll let your mum decide on the drowry herself. It's the thought that counts mah

Ivy,
i just saw your EG too..i think the pink is nice!! and the EG does look pretty.... jus ignore that guy who gave such comments.... as long as you and your HTB likes it, then don't be too bothered by what other says......

lsntyl,
No worries i can understand as the AD approaches there are many gritty stuff to handle. No worries as long as u still frequent this forum. I believe there will be a Part 2 to the gathering;P
how is everyone?
Nec,
Meiling is right as long as u are alright that matter.. i can understand when we suddenly change sim card.. i am totally lost whenever i got an sms of missed call...

hee, i'll definitely still hang around koyoyo. Just heard that my WG is ready. Finally I can go for a fitting.

spoiltbabe>maybe talk to Pam see if can work out anything? Or maybe take out a bunch of friends and celebrate with them separately say at a buffet? This will give you more time with them and can be more intimate.
happy.gif


Crown>I agree with Green. Don't stress yourself too much. What I do is let the 2 moms settle everything between themselves. I act blur and at most just pass the message. So want how many cakes, how many vouchers, buy what lamps, give pork leg or canned trotters, etc all I ask them to discuss together and just tell me what I need to do. Saves me a lot of trouble.

JRgal>FH is in reservist not so he want oso cannot do anything much. But I made him promise to settle everything else after his reservist. But he's still being a dear. Going with me for my WG fitting next Mon. Finally, my turn to try on the gown. :D

Hey girls, I'm back. Ivy, I think your EG is gorgeous! I love hot pink and those shoes are amazing! I've also got matching shoes for my EG, so I know how shiok it feels
happy.gif


Yup today I went for my first fitting, and I love my EG! The purple is exactly the shade I hoped it would be and the gown turned out like the design. It's not finished yet so today was a lot of pinning and standing still. I brought my matching shoes and they were perfect
happy.gif


Then I tried on a few CS cos it's in my package. Don't know which one I should go for as a tea gown- help me choose? Photos are here (contacts only, so add me if you want to see):

YL and green:
good idea, coz now the BQ is oredi congested with people whom i dunno. Would rather have a small makan session with my bunch of friends separately. If really cannot squeeze in everyone i guess tat will be our option liao.

green:
so far my mum is the only one who is making comments, my MIL is quite cool so far. But confirm GDL items we will get ourselves, with my auntie's help.

Spolitbabe,
It's quite common to see ppl hold separate banquets for relatives & friends nowadays. If you are holding a small banquet for friends, I suggest Rochester Park, Sentosa beach, hehe these places are romantic. You can have something different, maybe outdoor, western food etc! ;)

HI,Diamond actually has no value. If you want to spend bomb on 4DJ i think you should buy gold rather than diamond.Mostly all this 4dj we dun get to wear it, Must as well you keep gold in your drawer and still can appreciate.

Ivy, guys always got something to say about colors. So pink = pink panther; dark green = army uniform; light green = bus conductor. So if they pick black with white shirt, you can say they look like panda, if pick all white, can say they look like polar bear, or if tuxedo, you can say they look like penguin.
