Ladies, thanks for all the clarifications. This puts me more at ease that the draft AD schedule we have for now is on the right track.
I like the idea of including a photo with the cakes but have always feel apprehensive about what people would do with it after the occasion...I'm still considering if I should give out the 'wedding photo bookmarks' which my BS has printed for me.
i saw in an old post you mentioned something about "city sq" is that place in singapore? Is it nearer kitchner road???
The idea of kidnapping FH to bintan sound fun and memorable.. Good luck and enjoy!!
Dear Meiling ,
Sorry for the late post. I believe like many other brides. As our Big day approaches.. we get more panic .. I read about your post on old AP rates. unfortunately given Singapore culture, this will always be the case. Rem i told u one young guy fren put only $10 saying it a wkday dinner and he cant rem so he forget to prepare cash.. (super lame) anyway try not to think too much on thing that you cant control on. As for the ps i agree w the rest you should consider it through.. no doubt the photos are nice but if u will develop the feeling of been conned and feel sore then you should just give up the thoughts.. slowly take some time to think it ...
I agree totally with you on the Kiam Ap ppl... haha i worry about my lunch recep too.. i even heard some ppl say no need to pack AP for church.. Now i feel like a fool pack 58 for the last church wedding... wat the mkt rate for church AP anyway??
Cant make it to this meeting will join the next one.. Have fun..
Do show us some photo.. been waiting to see ur fitting.. and nec too.. how your coming?
i see, i thought the city sq in singapore is open.. it suppose to be open this dec.. Anyway i bought a few nice looking AP on my last trip to JB. How is ur GDL stuff ? Got photos? HOw much you spend???
Hey gals, have u all heard of some ways to pray to heaven to prevent raining on the AD? I've heard using chillis and what else? Anyone knows or heard of it before? I really hope it wouldnt rain on my AD...

well well, now my only worry is d d loss i'll make....d youngsters shd b aware of d AP rates but it's juz d more senior ppl cos they r always living in dat era
as for d pics, i try not to think abt it 1st, perhaps after my AD den consider if i wana get back d softcopies back....my $ kept on flowing out dat i felt so sad dat im gona b poor
i met my VG yest n i was really impressed wif his works, im so glad dat i engaged him last yr cos d price diff was nearly $1K....phew! my colleague got his partner to do his AD VG as well....i chose my theme n will b passing him d song n pics for my childhood montage
i saw ur beautiful gown le! it's so pretty n red suits u alot
d design is nice n d gown is so flowy
im sure u r happy wif d gown as well, so wat other things will they b adding to ur gown? so happy dat u finally can fix d date for ur PS, have u decided on ur locations for ur PS?
meiling, will not be adding anymore thing to my gown the lady got ask me whether i wan to put some more shimmer thing on it but my hubby say will not look nice no choice la he is the designer ma haha have to listen to wat he say.I have decided to go hort park and labrador park for my PS.
wah so gd wor, ur hubby can decide for me on all these things, i think my fh will juz go ok ok, up to me wah, gd choice, i went to labrador park but skipped hort park due to time constraint, had always wanted to go there cos it's a popular spot for PS
Christina : We wanted to talk to our photographer before hand as we didn't have much idea on where exactly to go or if they are suitable. We also want to let him know the mood and kinda pictures we want taken.. After yesterday's appt, we are quite happy with the selection of locations.
ladies, my PS is next week, so when for final fitting yesterday.. sigh.. still need amendments.. dunno is I keep putting on weight or she has never loosen the dresses for me yet..
She supposed to have loosen at least 3 times liao..
koyoyo>you mean the city sq in Little India? But not yet open mah.
Didn't calculate the total cost for the GDL stuff as most of it was taken care of by the 2 moms. Never got around to take photos. My GDL is this Sun. If can, I'll take some photos and post them up. But mine is v simplified.
fiona>your EG is lovely and the shade really looks good on you.
think mine is like your previous case, v mild only...maybe cos i took the medicine fast enough.
GDL is when your bf's side bring stuff over to our side rite? then tmr will be mine too haha...his parents bringing a basket of things here...
Sotong, I have not decide on my gowns yet. Maybe because I'm too fussy. Will be making another appt (last appt before my PS) to confirm on all the gowns and hopefully I can speak to my PG (Dawn) as well.
Erlina, Thanks for sharing. I will try to talk to my PG and see what she offers.
Dun worry too much abt your gowns as I think they will do the best for you so that you can top up more photos.
nlimm, I tried to PM you a few times asking for the contact on NuBRa, but I guess there's some problem sending out. Do you still have it? Can you kindly email me at [email protected]. Thanks!
nec, we were at raffles city the last time, at 3rd floor. I think it is coffee club.
koyoyo, if the bride/groom is just so-so friends/acquaintance/other dept's colleague/not so close neighbour to me, maybe I will just give a $38-$50 angpao. Yes, I have also heard of people saying no need to give.
for us, we got a pair of white gold...simple design, reason being that we are wearing this forever and would not like the rings to go "out of trend" or anything...we also went for a comfort fit...supposed to be more comfortable la...not sure how true this is... hee
the place u listed wld probably cost 5k a pair? not very sure as I have not really been into those places...
Hi all, I just want to find out whether it is normal not to meet your photographer before the PS. My PS is tomorrow and the bs says we can discuss the locations tomorrow.
I'm quite displeased with my bs because we had one makeup artiste but someone else is taking over her even though we had booked up earlier.
Thank goodness I have taken my photos overseas already, and so I don't need to depend on this current bs that much.
Er.. what is the procedure with the chilli to prevent rain? I might want to know too and I think all of us have to pray hard that the weather is nice so that our photos will turn out nicely.
Fruittea (fruittea80); Dun think so much about what pple would do to your photo.. most prob you would have forgotten whom you have given to as well. As the most they throw away. Yup. I would intend to give the photos to my relatives and close friends only.
just put some PS pics up.. heehee... gimme ur comments on which hairstyle is nice kk.. i cant decide which to use for AD... It's been raining practically the whole week, sooo happy when it didn't rain on my PS day... heehee....
Hi pinky81, I shall not think too much. We prefer the modern types and will choose either choz or sweetestmoments...hehe
For the pyjamas, you may like to try OG, John Little or the heartland malls such as kovan or toa payoh. They usually have little lingerie shops that sells the cotton material pyjamas.
Btw, your parents will be sending most of the bride's items such as bedsheets, pillows, basin, pyjamas, tea set, bedside lamps over on the GDL day itself? My mum felt that since we're staying on our own, some of the stuff we can bring to our place on another day for convenience.
Meiling & Cheryl: Glad to know you gals had fun celebrating. Mine's coming soon too. =)
I more or less have completed my invitation cards but haven't sent it out yet. But in my case, it's mostly relatives, so the parents will have to do the reminder. As for my guo da li, it's coming soon. I have bought most of the stuff also already, now looking forward to it. But I still have so many things on my list that I cannot seem to strike off yet leh ... ... hmmmmmm For those, it's more like closer to the day then can do one.
