porsche: Hey dear ... cannot help you in that dept coz I ROMed way before the customary wedding. But my guess is you should only be wearing the wedding band after you've exchanged during the solemnization. If you want to have wedding band shots, you can still have it before the dinner. Isn't it? If you have a proposal ring, you can wear the proposal ring in the morning.

Jane: You must be very careful with that tulle gown right? My gown is also a tulle gown and some parts of the skirt tore. I din even know where I got it torn too. Sigh.. Wonder where I can go for my outdoor photoshoot if the skirt is so easily spoilt.

Jolene^^ (jolene428): So nice of your MUA to come down and update u on ur new hairstyle. I never get to see mine after the trial make up.

meiling> Unfortunately I din select a lot of pre-wedding photos for the EG. So when I miss the old design, I can only refer to those which is taken unprofessionally by myself.

Jac> The talk with my designer went very well. Both of us felt that it was a pity to take away the sash. However, we felt that it's the best solution. She is very supportive of my proposed design. But got to trouble her to go buy extra fabric to do up that shoulder strap and hand sew all the gems on the strap. And lastly, I'm glad she didn't ask me to top up any money for the change.

Hi all, thanks for all your support. Good news, my dad is slightly better now as compared to the past few days. Just transfered out from ICU. Feel more relieved now. Btw, I just posted another PS self taken photos at Multiply. Please feel free to browse them. Photos badly taken as hubby not so good with camera. Hope you all dun mind.

jac,
im sure it's ur gown design n no one can carry it off as beautifully as u cos it's designed meant for u....those ppl may copy ur design but den it does not suit them cos it's not meant to b designed for them in d 1st place....
for me, i feel so unsettled like so many things not done but den duno wat to start wif....scary tot dat my wedding is 6 days away
sad.gif


florabliss,
gal, im thinking if is there any way to make d sash into a detachable one while u change into a diamonte strap? hehehe....u march in w/o d sash n den during table photo-taking, u can attach d sash back...perhaps wif a clip-on....so it's easier?

hi gals, beside my hubby giving ang bao during gatecrashing, I will also my bride maids ang bao. But what is the market rate to give them by bride?

Is it normally car door boy open the doors at both side of the bride and groom houses? i told my hubby must also open the door at his side, but he said no need..

Hi Melody,

One of my friends told me the market rate is from 88 onwards.

But the actual one is up to individual..

I heard by right the car door boy is only need at the bride's side. but now dunno why both side.

This is what I heard and know.

Hi, I also dec bride...long time no log in le....
Trying to read everything... but well, too tired...

Anyway, keer, take care and glad to know that ur dad is getting better...

Btw, I read somewhere that somebody is searching for videographer? I booked mine le....

He is Mervin Lee from Bridal elegance. Videography service and express highlights, I was charged 850... Not sure if it is cheap though... you might want to consider?

Hi Mindy!
happy.gif
Welcome back! I know, it gets me blur to read so many msgs after I've been away for a while...

Anyway, I think Mervin is great! He did my photoshoot and he's a very nice guy...Very generous, easy to get along with, genuine...My bridal package is with Bridal Elegance...Also using their videographer (no express highlights)...But not sure if I'll get Mervin as my videographer...
 
Lsn,
Merchant court lunch and dinner buffets are nice. Must remember to make bookings 1 week in advance, they are always fully booked. Their teabreak buffet (3pm-5pm) isn't nice though.

wah u all are so active here!
yeah i agree with charma, most of those weddings i have attended or heard (if nt all), the angbao is only given when the groom arrives prior to fetching the bride from her hse. When the couple arrives (together) at the groom's hse for tea ceremony, what i see is the groom opening the door himself or driver etc..not some kid leh..

btw the angbao is at least $88 to each jie mei? then what abt the gate crashing when the hubby gives to all? wont that be hundreds already? i am wrapping each angbao for the jie mei and giving that to my father to distribute to them as gesture for helping me on this day. if one got 10 jiemeis,isnt that $880?lolx..luckily only have abt 5
*pocket emptying day by day..lol

Thanks Eunice... now been so busy with my house renovation that I got no time to settle my wedding stuff... haiz....

haha... anyway, Kayjay, you still looking for videographer? can use as reference...

Actually talking about it, I also not sure if Mervin will be the one taking the video or not... haha.... just that I find the price competitive and when I saw one of their video of their couple who just got married, find it quite good so just take lor....

I am not very particular... cos I think at the end of the day, probably only the couple and close friends will view the video again....

I thought of doing it cos I going malaysia to hold another dinner so can show it there mar....
 

eunicet

New Member
Mindy: Then I think that Mervin may not be doing it...Cos he did tell me he has other colleagues doing the video part...But yeah, their video not bad lah...PG for AD so so only...But video looks good...
happy.gif
Yeah, you can show at the dinner!

hi
florabliss, glad that you manage to settle what to do with the strap. I think taking away the sash sound like a better idea cos the diamente strap look kinda of unique.

Meiling,
Good luck with those house selection.
Nelle,
You are really good in thinking. But can u really bearing selling away the gown that look so nice on you? I want to sell my AP box away and my hb is like .. that a beautiful memory u sure u wanna sell haha..

Jac,
WHat done cant be undone. Anyway the gown still give different feel when diff ppl wear it so dun worry i am sure you will be a pretty bride!!

LystNl
Ur hubby is right. As long as u are the first one to wear it that matter further more ppl dun rem gown it will be forgotten but ppl will remember how pretty u look on your wedding day. So dont worry ok...

Jac
But i am stil quite curious who is this gal who try to copy ur gown design>?? diff design only suit diff ppl.. Since u are the first to thought of this design, you will be most suitable for it.

Mindy: Thanks! I will consider Mervin to be my videographer! Their charges seem reasonable. Thanks for sharing! cheers =)

kristine, add u already ^^ thk i doing smthg diff for the corsages LoLz.. went shopping just nw and thought of doing some beads accessories with flowers as corsages ^^ Smthg the jiemeis can wear after my AD ^^

yvonne = now i got very little hair nw so wait til the MUA see it on 19oct then see wat she said! lagi she faintz :p Actually normally the PS hairstyles is to test if u want the same for the AD. Or else wait last min they come out with smthg horrible during AD then hw :p

ehhh for the angbao for jiemeis... actually there are a few ways of doing it...
1. both side of parents give only then depends on hw much ur mother and MIL want to give lor..
2. both side of parents give small amt like $8-$28 and then urself give thm according to hw much they help u... like eg. for those jiemeis cum emcee maybe $88 then thoe jiemeis who dun hv extra duties just $38.
3. Only urself give.. then will depend on a. hw much ur groom giving them at gatecrashing. b. wat duties they take at the wedding..

For me, the jiemeis most likely have dual roles min but my Nite IC doesnt come in the morning..so her rate mayb diff frm the rest...

Actually i realised brothers v poor thg.. coz they dont get the gatecrashing $ and kena sabo somemore hence must give them more each lor
happy.gif


i thk average i giving them $38 to $68.

pinky81: my MUA works full time for the BS tts why she is always at the BS unless she is out for her assignments ^^

Hi ladies,

I got a few questions to consult all of you, hope you can help.

1. Anyone knows where I can get the 'bedroom slippers' for GDL? I'm thinking of the towel material types and not the 'xi' fabric type from chinatown. Walked around suntec, marina and raffles city today, couldnt seem to find it.

2. Does anyone has a draft emcee script to share? My hotel just provided us with a simple toast master script which isn't of much help. I need at least an english and chinese draft to customise with my 2 emcees. Hope someone can help.

AD nearing...besides pockets emptying the stress is building up! But visiting the forum and learning from all of you does helps alot in my preparations. Me and HTB still havent decide the amount to give to my jiemeis and his brothers. The discussion sure gives us some tips and reference. Thanks ladies.
