ete> is the pedicure area near to your hse? or ur workspace is near to your home? if not, just grab a simple slipper on your way to the pedicure area... save the hassle of moving back and fro.. unless there is a lot of time to spare =)

ete> it normally takes 2hrs for the nail polish to be fully dry. So u still muz be careful after that. Wah! tmr PS! Have fun ya!

shermaine lim> u might wish to try opp harbour front, inside the hawker centre. Quite a lot of guys noe of tat place tat tailor suits. My hubs also did a suit there before. Reasonable price, but oso depends on the material you choose. Their designs are up-to-date or u can oso bring yr design to show the Uncle. Workmanship oso not bad. Got a few shops there, but I think most people go to the 1 located at a corner one.

Sue,
Welcome

like wat cheer say, its quite subjective. or u wan to tell us ur budget n wat u looking for in a package.

tink u hv to move fast. alot of us here start to take PS liao. so u need to start ur sourcing nw.

Cheer,
hmm. normally mit the parents session will tok abt wat is needed for GDL. eg, no. of cakes, items needed lar. then pin jin mah. it depends. can tok it out if u wan. if nt bride parents will roughly tell the bride then bride tell groom. tis is very sensitive so need to handle wif care. becoz some bride parents dun like ppl to ask them face to face...
and also the no. of tables groom to give bride side..

Hello Sue!

You can refer to the attached checklist when you go for your BS hunting. This attachment was uploaded by another bride from this forum as well. I should say that it's quite comprehensive. But I forgotten which thread I got it from. Hehe. This forum is also a very powerful research tool, so you might also wish to refer to the thread of the BS you shortlisted to find out more from the ladies there.

mashi> Speaking of GDL, is it that we gota prepare 2 sets of the tea-set rite?

Pekochan - I think have to prepare 2 sets. 1 for your parents' home and the other for in-laws' home..

I've seen ppl selling away used Tea-set. Is it compulsory to buy new sets?? What is the significant of it?? Anyone can highlight?

Hi Sue,
Welcome to the group!
I shortlisted Julia Wedding News initially but their package was too expensive so I dropped them. Their basic package inclusive of 20 pics is $3,688. They have gorgeous gowns though, so if your budget can stretch I'd say give it a go.

Iris,
I dun think it's necessary to buy new sets. It's just personal preferences, some ppl like everything new. I'll be using the one my mum used for her wedding, so it's an old tea set.

Hi gals,
basically tis is wat they say lar. for groom side tea set, has to be new lar. n its given by the bride side during GDL with baby bath tub, etc.

for gals side, they say no need new de. can be used b4 de also can... so depends on hw u c it lor....


tat is my understanding lar.

oooh i didnt know groom side had to be new.. we are using the set his parents used during their tea ceremony and my mum bought a new set for us already. LOL, like the opposite :p

i felt Julia Wedding News gowns were verryyyyy pretty but wayy too expensive, esp for OTR gowns!

shermaine : e shop s call domanchi... tis s e website - http://www.domanchi.sg/collections.php?category_id=1

understand tt e groom side teaset s part of e drowny... as for bride side, can use e one tt s been use by our parents...

heard fro my friend's mum, it s better not to bring e tea set fro e groom place to e bride place for tea ceremony.. cos if e tea-set broke during tis transit period, e in-laws will not get along well.... she heard it from the shop tt sell weddin items..

Hi Sue,

Went to My Dream Wedding b4, personally feel that their gowns are quite limited
And feels that their focus is more on overseas wedding shoots and promoting their wedding album cover.
Guess you need to select your BS real soon cos alot of PS date had been fixed.
Perhaps u can try walking down Tanjong Pagar area this weekend as most of the BS shops r there.
Good luck
