p00h - my ROM also on 1 Nov. AD (Spore) 1 Nov. Banquet (JB) 28 Nov.

printing of cards - it's not about KS or not. rather, if u get done now, why not? why wait till last minute, rushing yourself? for mine, we're not firming up the guest list cuz we have a lot of overseas friends. so...have to wait for them to confirm flight, hotel, etc.

dzxz - our parents met and talk about GDL stuff already. but it's not during food tasting..think it's up to you..

yeah got 2 teasets right? 1 to be used at bride side, 1 at groom side. the one to be used at bride side, i use the one my parents used when they got married. then the one to use at groom's side, my mum will have to buy it, together with bedsheet and all the other jiazhuang right? then the set that we use at groom's side, next time my daughter can use when she chu jia. does it work like that? or i can't use my mum's? thought it'd be quite a meaningful hand-me-down..

i heard that after anchuang, nobody can go inside the room or touch the bed. but abit hard to follow right? esp if u got ur stuff in the bedroom alr.

Hi ladies, today I receive a call from my BS. And they ask me to confirm the timing on AD for my MU. But still so far away.... how would I know, havent even plan my schedule for that day.

Does all BS do that?
 

agag

New Member
cherie> i guess your MUA probably has more than 1 bride on that day, must be a popular date. They probably need to coordinate the timing and see if they can accept 'new' couple which coincide with yours.

I don't think the confirmation is this early from what I heard... anyway, I have yet to book my AD BS! :p
 

pebblydiamonds

New Member
yup Cherie, i got that call last month from my BS already. haha. the BS wanted to schedule and fix the timing for the MUAs to start. i think mainly the banquet that they will arrange. the morning MU up to u to arrange with ur MUA in person.
n u know what, so qiao that Germaine and I have been assigned to share the same MUA. haha.

DCn33,
If print inserts then quite cheap. Tink 300pcs for RM100. Unlimited cartoon characters. Add map another RM30. So confirm cheaper than here.
If u say cards then depends on wat design u looking at. Abt Sgd1 per pc. C ur budget. Suggest u go there to c b4 u decide.

New Member
Anticipate> Is it you cannot find a BS that you like yet?

Pebbles> OIC. Then did you fix a time with them? What time should I fix? Totally so blur on this
 

sparkless

New Member
mrs lee - I think you really have to settle your banquet venue soon. Like what pooh and evelyn said, why dun you list down your requirements, maybe the girls here can give you some suggestions?


dzxz- we are arranging a parents meeting session in June, since both our mums work in school so school holiday is the best for them.


pooh - no harm printing your cards earlier. you will have one task less to do.

New Member
cherie> timing is basically depends on wat time u chu jia and wat time u need to reach the hubby side.
from there u estimate the time u need for make up and dress up.

Pebbles> nowadays it's quite difficult to have the "hand-me-down" tea set coz different generation got different tastes
happy.gif
but freegoer's mama will use her own teaset ba... and then for me, coz my tea ceremony is at hotel, so i will bring my own
happy.gif


typically during hot dates they need to arrange MUA.. for me is that she needs to come at 6.30am as i need to leave hse by 8am latest...
happy.gif
hee hee...coz 6 dec 09 surely a lot of bridal cars and expressways will be "crowded"....
