jac, went for food tasting last sunday the potion is alot 11 ppl sit at the table also cannot finish all the 8 course food. Just did a calculation of the hong bao which to be given out on that day already $3000+ and another about $600+ for red wine and liquor wan to faintz liao. My hubby say we hav to go rob the bank liao. haha
Table list all confirm liao nw looking for Mcmee to present the speech and photo album will be ready be next week.
fiona, 3k for ap? serious??? oh no i feel stressed now. anyone can share on how much is your estimated gate crashing APs? i heard some pple discuss the amt with their jiemeis beforehand, but im not sure what is an appropriate amount. FH say some couple's jiemeis actually return portion of the amount to the couple...not so sure about that. As these jiemeis also help me out in other areas, i suppose we should give them extra AP for helping us right?
wow, i didn't know AP money amount to so much....we haven't done our maths on AP yet, so not fainting yet
i'm interested in knowing how much the gate-crashing is estimated to be...haven't discussed with my jiemeis too....i think some very nice jiemeis will return a portion of the money back to the couple...
i'm wondering too abt the APs for the jiemeis - still have to give them additional AP on top of the gate-crashing AP?
thanks for the luck! but my wedding is one of the later ones i suppose....OMG, almost 1 more month to my wedding!!
No worries. I am also doing my solemnization before my banquet. Bear in mind, mine is a wedding luncheon not dinner. So everything will be rush. My emcee for the solemnization will be by my 8yrs old nephew. I think it will be fun but hopefully he will not have stage fright. Here's my sequence of events for the solemnization for my wedding next sunday:
1) Soleminzation starts at 11am.
2) My nephew will announce and introduce the JP and both witness to be in front of the table.
3) He will announce the arrival of the bride and groom. We will do a small march-in.
4) The JP will take over the ceremony.
5) Thereafter, my nephew will announce for cocktail reception after the solemnization.
6) The wedding luncheon will starts at 12pm
Actually, your JP is right. Solemnization ceremony will only be attend by your family and close friends. If you want to wait for the whole guests to arrive, your banquet will start really late.
The headache thing now is that guests last min will inform of not able to come. Now only left with less than 2 weeks, unable to full up the gaps....sigh.....another blow is that two of my jiemeis have to fly off for business trips....sigh...more and more bad news.
Jol: Awwww!! So sweet of you!!!! Thanks for all the solutions offered, and even offering to lend me your bubble gun!!!
I think Tecman at Bras Basah might have them, though I think they jack up the prices a lot over there. Worse come to worse get the colourful bottles from Tekka!!
Kayjay: I think you can get rather affordable teasets nowadays, so like Jol says, if it makes everyone happy, head down to Chinatown! And make sure you go to the older shop rather than those in the market at Smith Street...Really quite a bit more ex!
no prob....now economy not so good...can help to save $ by sharing is good. The bottles from Tekka must blow one. Not battery operated, okie?
If there is any brides who want to get stuff for your little guests, can also check out a shop at Hong Lim complex, 2nd floor facing the food stalls. Its a toy shop. There is also one very big one at Arab Street, main road near bus stop after the mosque.
Jol: Hehe, thanks again! Anyway, I am looking for the must blow type of bubbles...It's to put at the side of the aisles of the church so during the 2nd march-in, instead of throwing confetti/rose petals, guests can blow bubbles!!
wooooo.. thats great xiaokai, then u can rest before ur AD!!!
dont worry, we will be around to help
Need anything let me know
tanlee: think ya too tired by then liao... hahaha i got some pic of me looking high after the toasting ahha... so funii...got ppl make us drink dilute wine+spirit with pepper somemore tt day.. crazi...
Jorene - Another vendor to consider is Eurokars Leasing. They are one of the premier commercial car rental and has diversified into wedding cars rental as well. They have been involved in some wedding shows this year. weddingcars.com service level has dropped a bit recently. Maybe fame is the cause of it.
Eurokars gave us a very competitive quote for 4 days use of Mini Cabriolet as compared to weddingcars.com. Service is more prompt also. You can view the car first before deciding. http://www.eurokarsleasing.com/ Can contact Samuel at 9387 1165
quite some time never come in, this thread moving fast. i just had my GDL last weekend. so tiring to go around SG sending the cakes and invites to relatives. then got a call from tour agency to say the tour i signed up for honeymoon trip is cancelled coz not enough people to form the group. stress!! i feel that i have 101 things that need to be done and not enough time.
Blur gal, maybe the cancellation is for the better, as it is very cold and about 8 hrs of daylight in europe. Best time to go is around late apr early may though...
Anyway, Just went robinsons to buy my bedsheets for GDL. I always wanted atas bedsheets that is of very high thread count and egyptian cotton quality. With more than 50% discounts I finally got it.. ^^
