Hi ladies

Its been a while since i updated here.... down with flu.... it is like an unavoidable when someone in the house gets it...

A month to July!! Is everyone excited?

Dione: I guess in a way thats business bah... and all the while I have been a very easy to please customer, so they think can smoke me lor... Nevertheless, I went to pick the gowns already and happy with my newly chosen WG... even though the material dun look too expensive still....

Not too sure whether expectations are higher after seeing so many spore gowns in magazines... nevertheless, its a comfortable gown, so leave it to my PG and VG to make it look nice under their lens!

But I have a confession to make: went to avana loft and saw this gown that fit me to a tee... its a red gown I always wanted, so i bought it! Burnt a big hole in pocket... it is a just nice size.. hope i dun increase size again in 25 days time. now sick, cannot even run.

Ah, the tangyuan and the mee sua also so problematic ah? But i only got one set of bowls, the other side how??

Haha, i also usually wear tee and shorts to zz... so only buy 2 sets of cotton pyjamas with cute animals on it as a symbol.... no bedroom slippers as well...

77 tables leh, i really bai you... how to do the guest tables? I got a headache with my 30 tables le.

Mrs Chua: aiyo, so complicated one ah. my side like nobody has a clue on what to do, so i just really do the basic... even hair combing i also get the comb and mirror only... din get anything else. The candles i dun want it to be a fire hazard and we seriously do not think that the candles will dictate how good the marriage is thereafter, so gg to ignore and just get the fastest burning... hahahah...

Dont worry about the confusion. Why not when you go and buy all the hair combing stuff time, ask the shop person so that they can give you a better idea on how to do it?

The BS folks are generally nice. I think they just happen to get a not so service oriented person for the job. When i returned, the service so much better lor and they got out the better gowns for me. Though the EGs are still below expectations.

For my haircombing i think i will jsut get the MUA or my mum to help comb and recite the lines and then do makeup le. :D

Sher: I only have 1 vegeterian and 1 muslim friend, so i will slot them into other full chinese menu table as the 10th or 11th person

Dione.. I'm nt going to pay for the RIPs. My banquet told me no prob though my vg gave me 2 choices. 1. Pay $150 for each song I use 2. Use their royalty free music from their music library. Hubby & me went thr their library & managed to find a few songs we like so we decided nt to pay for it

Dione: I dont think I will pay too. Will be meeting with the banquet coordinator and then decide how things go.

Hey for your HB's suits right, the bs only provide jackets? Who will help to coordinate the shirt colour and tie colour? Suddenly I thought about it. :D

Mrs Chua >> My VG has got his own songs he paid copyright for.. I've got no objections using his.. We checked with our banquet place again today and they say no need even though the song is in our own montage..

Blur btb >> Yea, only jackets.. The shirt colour we going with the basic colour -- White.. Then for the ties and stuff they will match for us when we collect on that day..

Dione: Will only meet banquet coordinator next week... feeling stressed le cos very late and then like a gazillion things to do... my hb is sick and i m also down with flu.... cant imagine if continue to be sick for next week.

Oh wa, they provide ties also ah... that is quite good! Cos i got my own EG, so now i have to figure out what he should wear....

Looking at the weather, also quite worried that it might be raining on wedding day. Hope the bad weather goes off soon.

Mrs Chua: Ya, saw your FB entry. Great that you have done one big thing! I am meeting emcees this weekend and then jiemeis next week. Duno when will be the brother's turn.

Yup, super broke already... quite worried.

What are you ladies doing for entertainment ah? I dun have the budget for band or animation le. So only have a montage that one of my jiemei is helping me to do, the express highlight of morning and that is about it...

Will you be showing your pre wed pic before the banquet start or during?

Mrs Chua: I have arranged in such that I will appear at about 7.30pm to mingle with guests. Cocktail start at 7pm but probably nobody will turn up so early.
 

gg_paradise

blur_btb... so what time u start ur make up?? I'm thinking of getting my mummy to start her make up @ 5.30pm.. den I start ard 6.15pm so I will not appear during cocktail..

Mrs Chua: the mua told me that 1.5 hours will be enough. So i start at 6pm makeup.

I got 1 mum and 3-4 jiemei to makeup.... the mua bringing hair stylist so i got one mua to do just me and then 2 others to do the rest.

I think time in such a way that the most impt folks (urself and your jiemei who need to be at recpt to help goes first). I assume you use only 1 mua? or more?

Blur_btb.. my mua oso told me 1-1.5hr is enough le.. my jiemei will settle their own make up, I onli have my mua to help my mummy to settle her make up.. my mummy will be doing her make up 1st cos she needs to be @ the reception to attend to guests.. think I will call my mua later to discuss with her again..

like what u say, nobody will start appearing so early.. & I oso dun wan to be in the bridal room waiting too long haha

YES!! EXCITED!! my guestlist is not ready! My tables r nt confirmed! And I have super bad eyebags!

Btw, I really like my xibing...very nice!

Must also praise my JB BS - Venus. As one of the album wasn't properly done in our opinion as there's a gap between 2 of the pages, my coordinator Joel actually delivered the album after fixing to SG to my doorstep! She even brought along the ribbon I requested to custom made for my tea dress for me to see and to try on so she can alter in advance!

Mrs Chua: Yes i think you should. I got sms reminder from my friend before the actual day to remind me of the time and place.

I think if anymore people not coming, they will have the courtesy to inform.

Hi all I just found out something n I can't help worrying if it's ok. Need advice from all. I just found out I am pregnant and my wedding is just weeks away. I heard tat if u r pregnant then u get married is not auspicious. The bb might go away. Is it true?
 

gg_paradise

New Member
Blur_btb, Ellen.. I had sent a SMS out this morning to get act as a gentle reminder. I onli sent once but some of them claim that they received 3 times... lols

Congrats Michelle... so happy for u
happy.gif
I oso hope to get pregnant now but period jus came on Saturday so my plan fail... haizz.. anyway it came oso at the right time cos my wedding, I won't have to worry abt it coming.. my mummy even ask me to go take those med which will stop it from coming but I was worried that if I would to take those med & I'm pregnant, it would affect baby's growth.. did heard from some friends b4 that if would to take such those med when pregnant will cause baby will be born abnormal etc..

anyway, I no heard of such thing that it is not auspicious to be pregnant & get married at the same time.. to me, it is double blessing...
happy.gif
once again, congrats.. so happy for u
happy.gif
jus remain cheerful will do.. dun think so much & everything will be alright
happy.gif
btw, how many mths pregnant r u now? I jus think that when u must be extremely careful on that day esp when u wearing high heels. Do let ur jie meis to know abt it so they can pay special attention to u on that day..

michelle -- CONGRATS! I agree with Mrs Chua, it's double happiness.. Nothing auspicious abt that.. Just relax and enjoy ur new life as a Mrs and a Mum-to-be.. =D

Mrs Chua -- Jiayou, getting too uplight also reduces chances of pregnancy.. Shun qi zi ran.. A matter of time before you become a mum-to-be-to..

Congrats on you upcoming wedding this weekend too!! Let us know how it went when the dust settles! =D

Michelle > congrats!

i know of a few pple that were in your situation too, now their babies are already big and healthy... no worries about being inauspicious okie~
happy.gif
hmmm though maybe you will be more worried about potential morning sickness on your AD, but anyway, it's double happiness... hope you will feel fine and well throughout your pregnancy
happy.gif


Mrs Chua > yea better not take those medicine... i didn't hear about affecting the baby, but heard that if you take the medicine, the next time when it comes you will feel very uncomfortable...

As for babies, like what Dione said, shun qi zi ran ba... when it's time to come, they will come~!
