Finally collected my wedding albums! Can view from my multiply. ID: jing84
Some photos didnt turn up as what I've expected cos when we were choosing the photos, they were no bigger than an ezlink card size but when its blown up big album size, realize some expression really funny!!!! Do u gals have the same prob? haha
hello everyone, I'm back!! Thanks Eunice for helping to forward the programme and helpers' list to the rest. The weather has been beautiful for our solemnization. The whole wedding was what we wanted though time control was a problem and we have to rush through our speech but no regrets. My husband was so emotional that he broke down at the end of the whole wedding -_-"
Wow jovin, u bring luck to the family, they will sure love u to death..
i heard when the couple do the champange pouring, whoever got hit by the cork will dio 4D.. And ours provided true enough, cos the cork hit my mother-in-law and she is the one only who dio 4D and it's 1st prize. We are given big ang bao each..
halo to all the Mrs-es!!!! so sorry for MIA-ing for so long after the wedding.... i went for my honeymoon right after the hotel stays, came back last Sunday but was busy moving over to my in-law's place. Now back to work already....
how's everyone coping being a Mrs now??? im enjoying it so far coz its fun having to compromise 2 different living habits and im glad that my hubby is working very hard to make me feel comfy at his place!
congrats to all who tio-ed 4D! we were not even close to having our numbers opened at all! muahaha!!!! no luck ar....
PJ serves very delicious food! My youngest sis has her wedding dinner there last year and we were blown away by the food especially the mango scallop *yum yum*
racht - how's your wedding prep? 2 weeks to go right?
agree with Eunice, yday very cold. These few days woke up in the middle of the night and for a moment, could not understand why I am in YS and not JE hahaha...not used to bed and hubby next to me also. even the pillow and bolster felt weird
jol.. still "struggling" with finalising the ad schedule, helpers' checklist n table seating arrangement.. hv yet to confirm final details with hotelier too.. (=__=) 3 more days to go before my ad actually~ (*.*") do u happen to hv a checklist for angbao too? i.e. who to give and for what purpose etc?

Hello Stay! U're back! Congrats that u're enjoying ur life as a MRS! As for me, life is still the same. Cos my hubby is still in MAcau working.. Feel so sian la.. Haiz... Life is as normal, not much change, so seriously, i dont feel much difference between a Ms and Mrs.
morning jo_vin! dun be so sad, ure gg to look for hubby soon! look forward to that okie! in the mean time, there are always ways to keep in touch with hubby! cheer up okie!! uve got us in the forum too!!!
racht - the list of helpers also double up as a AP checklist but I think I miss out some roles. Below list is more comprehensive. Take a look
1) Jie Mei (additional AP for JM who drives)
2) Xiong Di ((additional AP for XD who drives)
5) Open bridal car door @ bride's and groom's place
6) Elders for holding tea set @ bride's and groom's place
7) Helpers for registration
8) Helpers for ushering
10) Gate Crashing APs
11) AP for In-Laws and Siblings (Bride to give after tea ceremony at in-law's place. Symbolize gifts for new family)
12) AP for bride's family (groom to give when bringing bride back to maiden's home. Symbolize gifts for new family)
13) Bridal Car Driver
14) JP if you are holding your solemnization
15) AP for Delivery man for Roast Pig
16) APs for fetching bride's party other than Xiong Di (sometimes, aunties will also follow e.g. mei po)
17) APs for children @ bride's and groom's place (newly weds are adults liaoz so must give APs to children)
18) APs for tea ceremony if you/groom has younger siblings. (Note : Prepare extra coz your cousins may come and then your parents/in-laws may suggest that they serve you tea as well)
In all, anyone who helps out at your wedding gets a AP. So better pack extra. You never know who will lead an extra hand on your wedding day
I just had my wedding on Sunday, and have 12 bottles of Cornerstone Classic French Red and 8 bottles of Cornerstone Classic French White left. These are going for $15 per bottle (negotiable)(via self-collection). Please email [email protected] if you are interested. Thanks!
I got ap problem also.. i dunno how much to put ah.. wat is the standard???
Darn tired.. every day also got things to settle.. >.<
Using Jol's list ah
1) Jie Mei
2) Xiong Di
5) Open bridal car door
6) Elders for holding tea set (must give???)
7) Helpers for registration
8) Helpers for ushering
10) Gate Crashing APs
11) Bridal Car Driver
12) JP if you are holding your solemnization
13) AP for Delivery man for Roast Pig (must give???)
14) APs for children tea ceremony
15) florist ??
16) banquet stuff ??
AP giving list is general except for #11, #12, #15 and #17. Out of which #15 is for the dialect group as Cantonese will have roast pig. APs for new family is more of a hokkien tradition. Some replace these APs with blankets and towels which are already exchanged during GDL. I know brides who buy gifts for in-laws instead so these will replace the APs too.
sotonglet - yes, must give AP to elder who hold teaset but the AP is from your mum and your in-law, not from you and husband
Uncle who deliver Roast Pig should have a AP too. Can just give $6/$8 lah. Florist and Banquet staff really up to individual.
Market rate for Helpers APs is between $8, $12, $18 to $28. Jie Mei and Xiong Di can give more since they will help you for almost the whole day. The rest like open door, tea ceremony, PG and MUA can give a smaller AP. Dun forget, your mum and in-law will also give to helpers so each helper will get at least 3 APs!
For me and hubby, we gave a bigger AP and told our mothers to give a smaller AP. We spent about $500 just for the APs, excluding the 'kai men' AP!! But my Jie Mei very nice, they took 4 'kai men' APs from my hubby and return 2 APs back to me lol
sotonglet, for me i never give AP to holding teaset. The lady who carry the pig leg my mum give her $38 AP. Then also a AP for the MUA and the PG $10 each dun hav to give them so much all the money come out from my mum.
For the helpers jiemei who help me i ask my mum to give them $28 each cos they still can get AP from ur hubby, the gatecrash, ur MIL side so dun hav to give so much. As for the xiongdis, my hubby give them more AP $68 each cos they will help him alot. Then for the open door and tea ceremony my hubby give $28 to my siblings and his siblings.
Then u also got to pack extra APS in case u need to give out to the children. My hubby give AP $10 to my auntie and uncle children.
