pearlypearl: u plan to MTM ur bridesmaids dresses ah? how many bridesmaids u have? my fren just bought identical dresses for her bridesmaids in Thailand.. i guess that's more affordable.


New Member
Ya- but it's for my EG. It's halter neck and I'm scared it will 'expose'. Where can i get it cheaper from TopShop?


New Member
Pebbles> i see
hmmm my shoes dun have.....


New Member
Pebbles> Yes, cos I don't want them to look "messy" when taking pictures! LOL! I have 6 of them... but all the way to Thailand, not v economic oso right? hmm... what if the sizes don't fit too?


New Member
saggie & pebbles - seems like it's better to be hassle by them then to be neglected at the later stage. hehe...

Btw, how long does it usually take to resize the ring or engrave? They don't take months right?


New Member
pearlypearl: i know what u meant by "messy". but after weighing out economically, n i looked at my friend's pics where we wore different shades of purple, i decided to be more cost effective. cos i'm already gg to try to make their wrist corsages for them. n so far i dun think the cost of the ribbons, rosettes, time and effort is cheap lor!

Anticipate: what i've heard is, they need to order the ring size u want. if dun have ur size, might take awhile, 2 or 3mths. engraving is on the spot. if they have ur size, 1 or 2 weeks. this is what the salespeople told me la.. i haven't experienced yet. :p


New Member
Anticipate: u only getting ur rings in time for ur ROM? what about ur PS? will u wear ur rings for PS? then u have to factor that in. for me, my PS in June, hence i gotta get my rings soon.
if not my ROM is on my AD.

Hi.. I am getting married on 19/6 but havent confirm on my solemnisation venue yet. I am getting nervous because it's getting near. I am looking at outdoor solemnisation and buffet dinner. Any nice outdoor suggestions except those common beaches, museum or national parks?? thanks


New Member
pebbles - OH... totally forgot about having it for the PS. Ahh... which means that I have to be fast on the ring too! Normally, how long in advance before the AD is the PS huh?

suddenly seems like a lot of things until i'm a bit confused now..


New Member
lalaa...mine is system 4 only got 1 compressor leh...so i think system 3 dun need 2 compressor ba...go down to the shops n bomb them with questions on why would he suggest one over the other...then go another shop and ask the same things...or same shop different salesperson...

nok..i will be interested in the statues...pics pls? material? size? got "kai kwang" one?


New Member
Anticipate: depends on u when u wanna have ur PS. generally BS takes 2 months or so to get the album out after ur PS. Sometimes if ur invitations going to have ur pics, or u printing posters/stickers/favours/stamps that will have ur wedding pics, then should do PS abit earlier lor. or if u wanna space out ur preparations la.
for me, i'm having my PS in June. oh do remember that if ur gown is MTM, u need longer time before ur PS for the gown to be made.
helps if u come up with a timeline to-do list. then just tick off item by item. n don't do it all urself. share the tasks with ur partner!

Karenyeo, the shop I went to at Chinatown is at the market/hawker centre. Near this CK place. Not sure if it's shopping centre or dept. I know you have to pass by Mac and the traditional dessert shop. It's towards that direction. I think there's a short flight of stairs leading to the hawker centre.

Ainsley, you can check out Sentosa or Arts Museum. Depends on the number of guests you wish to invite. You can also check out some hotels like Marriot and Changi hotel as they have outdoor venues as well.


raffles marina country club, u can see the 2nd causeway link and yatches.. a bit out of way as it is at Tuas, but nonethelss, the scenery is not bad..

Hi girls,

i got my wedding rings from Love & Co. Hmm, they're taking about 2 months for the sizes and another week for engraving (after we try on the size). so for those who have PS in June/July, better get them soon.

When shopping for wedding bands, my bf is always the one who says "we will consider it". i think there muz be one who is kinda firm.. if not very hard to "escape" lo. for me, Love & Co very cosy.. for ppl with budget, i think there are many simple designs to choose from. as my bf is one who refuse diamonds on his wedding band.. so for mine, wedding bands become a cheap affair. hee..

PS: oh ya, as im wearing the engagement ring together with the wedding band, my wedding band is the thinner version, therefore cheaper.

Nok, y do u need to buy e nails?Y dun juz go do it on ur real nails? To get this kinda patterns, u can do acrylic or gel.It'll be more natural on real nails and more lasting.

IPL has worked pretty well for me so far. I went to BCNg Clinic. They are located at chinatown point and OUB Centre. Good for those working at Raffles pl. I forgot how much I paid but its abt $400-500 for 6 sessions. The skin is smoother after the treatment and hair growth is still there,but finer and slower. I only need to shave every once a month or so.

I'm getting Mitsubishi system 4 inverter and costs abt $3,800 including installation.oni need 1 compressor. but Gal is right,inverter is oni efficient if u on more than one aircon at a time. so if oni single usage, maybe no need an inverter?But if u tend to hv guests over, maybe inverter is a more economical in e long run.

New Member
it's on fake nails.. It's not cheap though.. sort of feel cheated.. This cost $330 I think. But, I paid $38 for a $100 voucher, then $600 for $800 value. So actual value I also dunno how much lah.

It'll cost quite a lot to do it on real nail as well. Use once, I will xin tong.. some more you see the flower, I think if I do on real nail even one day before, it'll break when I sleep man. Hee.. I still have another set to make, so will make one to match my evening gown. Change clothing and change nails at the same time.

15May.. my rings are from E clarity. It's on their website, but we change the red & blue sapphire to emerald and peridot. So it's one light green and one dark green.

Kath.. got contact number? it's a clinic ah?? should be better then salon right. They do for face as well?? the price you pay quite ok leh.. near my office too.. hee..

ur wedding cake use real de ar?


New Member
Hi mashi-mashi,

Yeah, i did a lot by myself. When we decided to get married, my hubby & i decided that we want this to reflect our personality.

The hotel does provide florist but we are comfortable with ours & she always delivers what we wanted.

As for the wedding dress, I wanted it to be versatile, so that it can be worn again after the wedding. & i don't want a cinderella type of gown. So he has to come up with a design.

My hubby's passion is photography, so he has very specific requirements.

The cake is real, to be cut & served as dessert to the guests.
