Ixoral, the email format i send to my colleagues and boss is "Dear frends/bosses.. I would like to invite you to my wedding dinner aka the biggest event of my life on <date> at <venue>.
As im consolidating the guest list now, please lemme know if I have the honour of having your attendance on our special day.
as for SMS, its more or less the same format. den for those we replied ok, i will ask for their address at the same time so i can snail mail them the invitation card once its ready.
Nat, yes.. plannin to go there, u too?? me duno wher to research leh.. buy the lonelyplanet book?
mrs lee, yup yup.. planning to go too. think can start w online searching n lonelyplanet book is useful too. act, dun need to buy, can go library borrow one. i wana go france, italy, switzerland n london but duno how long i need lei.. somemore i dun have so much leave left.. sigh.. will have to discuss w hb n plan together lor cos he's much better at planning for trips. hehe
Mrs Lee: i think your choice of words are very nice =) But one thing to note is, i wld always prefer to write "we" instead of "i". Hee
I was thinking of this: "We would like to invite you to share in the joy of our wedding celebration on [date]. Please be our guest as we celebrate our heartfelt joy on this wedding night."
Actually do we need to state venue during the 'asking of attendance'? i realise some ppl dont.. and only after we receive the invite then we know where it's held. Cos i also dont want ppl to decide if they want to come or not based on the venue..just in case..
lalaa.. Guess it's still snowing in Jan.. it was -2.5 degrees in Dec.. Jan should drop a bit more... Dun go on the 1st week of Jan.. will be a dead town cos 1st Jan is their New year and companies usually close for a week. All will go back to their hometowns one.
xka, I think $80 is the market rate. My MUA tell me the same, so does the other MUA that I ask before.
yea mkt rate is ard 80 lor..
for me im gettin my fren (who is a MUA) to do for my bridesmaids.. since she my fren she charge me a bit cheaper..
Noknok.. thinkin of goin in end jan.. ard my bday time lor.. saw some webbies dat say hakkaido snow festival from feb 5.. see how lor.. also considerin other places.. like niagra falls or europe.. but dunno hows the weather there in end jan..
Yoyo!!! Htb and I haven’t do anything but asked my dad for his number of tables.
Also having problems with confirming guests. Do we set a list first and think of how to put them into a table of 10 then send the sms confirmation? Or the other way round? Cuz ar..i scared the ppl in the table dunno each other..will it be embarrassing?
I was also in a dilemma whether to change shoes or not on the AD cos the colour of my evening gown sure doesn't match my white bridal shoes and I will need to change a pair for the 2nd march in. In the end I decided to stick to the tradition not to take off shoes and I will wear a pair of silver shoes to match all the clothes I'll be wearing throughout the day. I feel silver shoes can go with kua for those who decides not to change shoes cos there's gold and silver threads on the kua.
I bought the silver shoes for my PS to match my evening gown and my BS coordinator said it can also can match the kua.
