Hi ladies, may I know how is an chuang done? We were told that when my fh comes to my place for gdl, at the same time his parents will do the an chuang. Is it right that all the have to do is change the bedsheet on the new mattress and place the stipulated items like red dates, etc on the bed that's all?

hi gals... it's dec already!!! Gosh, counting down time for us.. I'm just starting to plan my Ad iternery. hws everyone's preparation?

Sigh.. you guys reminded me i am really behind my scheduleeeeeee.....

I am trying to find "the parent's prayer" by stephen curtis chapman in CD. CAN'T find!! help! That is what I wanna for my church march in. I also trying to find the traditional version of either Hendel's Massiah or Beethoven's Ode to Joy as my church march out too.... Oh yeah, anyone has that theme song by Diana Ross in that show "Land before Time".

For my dinner, I dunno wat good... STUMPED. LOL..

Jol, I used the Gift for my photomontage of my PS in cartoon series. ^^". John Wickham's always forever for my church photomontage when i am signing on the dotted line.

Pin, I dun really like mendelssohn's wedding march though, but you can go for a variations of others like Trumpet Voluntary, handel's hornpipe, Pachelbel's Cannon in D. If you wanna a songs with words, Try "I will be here" by Stephen Curtis Chapman, One Gal One Boy, by Collin Raye and "forever and always", by Shania Twain.

Hi Ping&jie

I have sent the songs to you. Hope you like it.

I checked out Bond's Quixote. Sounds good, quite tribal =)
Their Libertango is also quite nice.
Also considering Winter Games by David Foster.

btw.. all dec btb.. does everyone assign n specify your helpers' (bros n sisters) roles.. who do what etc? i am facing challenge deciding who shld do what? my siblings may nt make it to my ad (of crse helpout too) n they cant confirm yet~ n if i were to call for more help too late (less than 12 days nw), i fear there maybe too few or too many pple to helpout.. oso i may nt get help at all last min.. kinda of concern hw they will feel if there r too much on one person's plate too? tell me i am thinking n worrying too much.. (=__=")

My partner did the An Chuang before he came to my place for GDL.
What he did was:
1) Place bedsheets, pillowcases etc.
2) Place 4 fruits (apple, orange, pear, peach -can be any type)at the 4 corners on the bed in clock wise fashion (starting from top of bed)
3) Place 1 pineapple, 1 Fa Gao, 1 angpao (of $1.20 or $12 or $120 or $1200 etc, to signify 12 months of the years also have money) at centre of bed
4) Leave house to go GDL

After GDL, he (at this point I also can follow him to the house but I cannot step into the bedroom anymore till the AD) kept the 4 fruits (for our consumption). Pineapple and fa gao to leave at some other place in house but do not eat, can throw away once spoilt. The angpao to use after the 3rd day of AD.

racht - I've a team of 10 assistants and I specify who do what since I know their personality, strengths and weaknesses. Among them, I also apppointed a Main Coordinator who is overall in-charge. Anything crops up that day, all go to the main coordinator. They are empowered to make their own decision. I told them 'I do not expect perfect wedding so go ahead and decide for me. I will only be the Bride that day!' haha

If you fear that you have too many people, just let some know in advance that you may require them to help out on AD with what task. I'm sure as friends/cousins, they will be ready to roll up their sleeve for you.

Give me your email add. I send you my helpers list which you can make reference to. Then you slot in your own helpers' names. Dun be too stress, k?

My AD programme is also completed. Any BTBs who needs a copy can email me at [email protected] Note - Mine is tea ceremony + outdoor solemnization + buffet lunch.
