hihi,

Yup. My hotel coordinator recommended them. Jasvy charged me $90 for 1st 200 and subsequent was $0.20 each. The inserts were ready quite soon like within 3 days, but we waited a bit more for them to print the ang baos (~5 working days in total).

lavendergirl:
i am having the same problem as yours... suddenly my father told me got this distant relative need to invite, PLUS her 2 daughters AND their families. Seriously, i dunno any one of time -_- I told my father can invite them, but he cant invite his friends liao. No choice, i was damn pissed off and upset over this for quite awhile but now i dun bother oredi. Now only looking forward to our little HM. Hang on there, 3 more weeks and everything will be over

sunny_piggy (sunny_piggy): How does your ang pow looks like? Do you customize them?

jo_vin: So you signed up with 1 BS (johor) and this BS took your Singapore, malaysia and desaru shoots right? I thought you took up 2 different studios leh.. because the styles in Singapore and Malaysia are so different. =P

jojo: We have not added each other right? Going to invite you soon! Also want to see your pics. =P

meiling : oh i c .... is it okay if we use just a normal pen not d special or cute cute one ??
i think my fh will insist to use normal pen

mrs.chiew : yeah i will also wear kua/cheongsam so i also think that bun is nicer. in d evening also must wear WG + kebaya ... so i dont have any idea which hairstyle that suit for both ?? but i prefer flower acessory

hope the MUA will figure this out (cross fingers)

jrgal>how have you been?

I like your ROM bouquet. It is 2 different roses?

green>I think wear on 1 day is ok but if your skin is sensitive, better wash after each day. That's what I'm going to do cos I find my skin itches too much after using it.

crown>thanks for the rates. I too lazy to track. :p

Straylamb, yeah my MIL also say after giving birth, sure no more menstrual cramp one. I wonder if it’s real or she’s jus hinting me to give birth. Haha

Dor, mrs teo at blk 85 bedok north, at the wet market there, u will see a banner saying abt wedding floral bouquet on top of the stall. But each time I go there, it’s always closed lor, dunno how to catch her. Sad.
My jms have problems deciding wat colour theme. Haha.

Anyway, tonight I went to meet up with my primary frens, 2 of them happen to my my jms too. My guy fren mentioned something about theme for jm, instead of jus using colour, why not use eg robin hood as a theme and den play around with the accessories and clothes. Dat sounded fun to us. So thinking of using dat idea. But will need some brainstorming sessions. Hee

Lavender, relax, can u talk to ur mum and persuade her to drop the idea?

Dor, most mothers will want to marry off their daughter gloriously and with a lot of “face”, but hor, why my mother so hard to please one? Dun wan this dun wan that, den in the end dun even wan to invite her siblings aka my aunts and uncles. Sianz. Make me lose face leh, as if im free like dat, or as if she jus couldn’t be bothered with the whole affair. So, in a way, I quite envy those of u whom mothers wan to invite this long distance relative lah, dat long distance relative, to me, it means dat ur mother cares abt u. in my case, my mother jus heck care leh.

Wow jrgal, mrs teo bouquet very very very nice leh. gosh, I must call her and catch her liao.

Crown, why never help me check euro? Sad sad.
Btw, did u manage to choose wat u like from my fren?

i want to vent something in here....

on sat i went with fh to meet our hotel coordinator. instead of jus one nite stay, now we got 2 nites stay. but hor, my irriting fh say why not change it to 2 rooms instead of 2 nites stay?? den i asked him anor room for who?? den he say for his parents, easier for them to stay and count ap and stuff like dat. and anyway, we need to return gowns and stuff like dat, in orchard area, den got erp lah, all those crap lah. den i got a bit pissed, i say y must gif ur parents the room? den the next morning wake up, must meet them for breakfast??? i was like "HELLO, I DUN WAN TO SEE THEM THE NEXT DAY AFTER OUR WEDDING LOR!!!" damn it right?

den my hotel only has either orchids or red roses for the table decor and those floral stands. and i dun really like red roses lor, would prefer callas, den if i wan to change to calla, can lah, jus top up money lor. but my coordinator says no point wasting money on floral decor, cos ppl wont appreciate one. once the first dish is served, guests normally asked to remove the flowers one. i was like 'wtf'. damn it lor.

in the end, ya lah, we din top up extra cash for the change of flowers lor, really no point lor. but sianz lor, red roses. gosh.

den initially i wanted my table cloth to be black, also cannot. those old folks are really a pain lor. den i say black cloth with red table runner lah, also cannot.

in the end, chose platinum shiny for the tables and white or platinum shiny for the seat covers. sianz big time.

why is it dat i have to compromise when IT'S SUPPOSED TO MY WEDDING???!!!

jo_vin ur JB BS takes the PS in SG and Msia for u? that's very good wor.. but the gown selection, fitting, etc need to go JB? Isn't that quite troublesome? But if u took in SG, so many pics and gowns, sure more than $6k... u slim slim wear what also nice.. i gotta have alot of control as i put on weight VERY easily.. lucky the eyes part can help abit in distracting pp away from my fats... :p haha!

LsnTYL, so sad, cannot see you, maybe next yr, we can organise a Jun-Dec Mrs gathering..

Jac, collecting the gowns this friday, no more fitting, he says it's a prefect fit, but need to add more beadings.

koyoyo, I die to have your height...

MeiLing, how to travel light? 1 WG, 1 EG, 1 tea dress, 1 CS, 1 suit, 1 tux, 3 shoes already take up so much space. Love my WG, workmanship is double thumbs up, still a bit hesitant abt the EG though. So nice, you'll be models for your BS?

charma, what ang baos are u referring to? the only printing i know is for the invites... does it cost extra to add small pictures/icons on the wedding invites?
 

sunny_piggy

hi ladies, I went to customize the ang baos. Just a couple icon and both our names on it. I can't upload the sample pictures (not sure why size is too big. It's <200kb). Maybe you can PM me if you are interested then I'll email the picture to you?

SDJ I suppose neighbourhood stall will be better plus do check the gold price before you go lor.. monitor.. coz is does go up and down... and best if your MIL know the staff there... ask them cut the workmanship money etc...


angelina: kebaya is it goes well with bun better?? anyway since we come to the hairstyle thing.. here is where I get my source of different nice hairstyle for Asian :p http://verywed.com/makeup/ (sorry is a chinese website but got pic so just keep clicking the pic ba )

kinda met the 1st hiccups of my wedding.. food tasting yesterday.. argh.. disappointed.. already feedback and just hope they do sth abt it.

Morning gers...wat a cooling morning to start, nice weather 2 sleepz :mad:

angelina: nope I didnt take any pic juz a short makeup session. Hmm Maybe u can looking thru magazine or online to find sample of bridal hairstyle to shw yr MUA. As for pens, its up to individual preference.

Jen jen: I was told by the salesperson in Poh Heng that I could buy the SDJ set from the display set..Or I can mix &amp; match my own choice of jewellery if dun like their combination. She could also help u to choose the SDJ according to their budget..think 1K+ can be done except the SDJ jewellery will look thinner lol :p

Mei: U indeed our shopping queen, bought so many pens. So yr SDJ is white or yellow gold? So envy..

Mrs Chiew: So yr GDL this sun, yr mum will be flying over to join u? When Will u get to eat the "Long Feng Bing"..look yummy

You can check the thiong bahru website.. they got smaller one also.. Anyway if your mom ok then ok
happy.gif

porsche: sorry missed your post.. suckling pig usually come in 3 size.. Small medium and large... if not wrong hor.. medium size got ask before is about 30+ Kg one.. so if you say 16kg it could be the small size one ba.. ask the shop is better..
