germian>> congrats on having one matter settled for ur big day! so where u decided for ur banquet?
u gotten ur BS already? doing ala carte? my BS designer does the gown, hair and make-up, so i didn't have to think too much abt the MUA.
PG/VG? initially i was looking at the quality and style of PG... then.. realised that they are so over my budget. have to settle for more comprehensive and affordable packages. do note that popular PGs get snap up fast and their prices are always adjusting...
Joyle>> My banquet will be at Hilltop garden restaurant at bukit batok civil service club. I've more or less cfm my PG who is my ROM PG too..I took JB BS last yr so gotta source my own MUA and car. VG still looking around as wanna w/n my budget too. =)
How abt u? U settled your banquet?
germian>> Hilltop is nice! the food also wun go wrong.. their food standard is well-maintained throughout their branches. what's ur budget for VG?
for me...more or less settled...
1. Banquet venue
2. ROM PG, AD PG/VG
3. Design of WG & EG (just met up to do EG design yest.)
4. ROM Venue (most likely FOC venue)
5. MIL/mum's MUA (rec by BS)
still need to source for place to MTM bridemaids' dresses. MIL and mum also need to source for MTM. My MUA is my designer, worth it cos' his MUA service is not cheap! Car will be using FIL's car, hoping that he change his car thou' (lol~). also not done with my wedding bands.
I'm really very slow as compared to all you sweets! I've only bought my engagement and wedding rings so far and went to see my ROM place! Will be doing mine on a yacht but haven't got time to plan the deco and all because of my job's schedule. Will share my yacht costings once i got it ok?
Thinking of signing my BS sometime during May at either Venus/Fables or SGbrides in Msia since there's so many reviews Hopefully can get my PS done by August/Sept.
Last but not least, went to a "teller" with SO to see which date is good for our AD and he gave us 3 dates to pick from.
Ok will share more with you babes when I got the time, do add me at [email protected] if u have any questions ok! off to Krabi tomorrow. HUGS to all 2011 brides!
j0yle_t: yeah! cuz i custom made all my bands so if we get it all together can get a teeny bit of discount
Besides, the showroom made bands to "compliment" the engagement ring so i can stack it and wear together or separately
Next I need to check out the food + floral arrangements for the yacht before putting down the deposit. BTW, tip for all the BTBs, when choosing a photographer, yachts are considered "special request" so they tend to charge abit more.Be sure to ask clearly what they provide
CaraW>> I signed my BS with SGbridal.. going to have my PS in june.. no worries.. still got time to look around. happy BS hunting! =)
I had my ROM last yr with yatch march-in.. memorable to me and my hubby. share with us ur photos ya. =)
Hi, 1st time posting =P my AD falls on 25 Feb 2011. Seems like u gals r rather fully prepared.. I have booked my BS and banquet venue and seems like I'm now only "waiting for time".. absolutely clueless abt wat we shd do =P
Hi Joyle =) I have registered last yr so wun be having them on the same day. Hmm my BS is French bridal and my banquet will be at orchard parade hotel.. duno why i just like the ballroom there and the food is good (tung luk) so didn't "waste" much time gg to view the ballrooms for diff hotels. I love the march in as theirs is bubbles~ PG included for AD too... neg until i got wat i want then sign.. hehe..
how abt u? u r holding urs in novotel ya? when's ur AD?
I thk more or less i shd be done le ba.. now waiting for an huang, timing and "neg" for guo da li etc...
Joyle>> nope.. i had mine @ the registry =P we r collecting the cert frm them dat day & requested for "urgent registeration" due to some unforseen circumstances.. luckily they managed to squeezed us into the first slot.. thank god =)
Yup, i aso dun nid much albums.. few months down the road and they will ended up in the storeroom!! hahaha so no nid to spend so much on it..
Ger&mian: Gorgeous! can i have a look at your yacht photos march in? I'll post the link to my fb album once its out
j0yle_t : I think we can nego with the yacht co and see if they allow deposit. Some of the yachts are owned privately so they don't mind
Mine sets sail at One degree, sentosa and travels to Lazarus Island. I sure hope it doesn't rain.
at least u've already picked ur banquet..i'm still waiting for my MIL and FIL to give me the right date and their number of guests. i think if i will flip if I cannot get the hotel i want by the time they decide. LOL
CaraW>> We just fixed a few dates and went to check whether is it a good day for wedding then "TA LA" 25 Feb is the best... hehehehe...
Hmm prob u nid to decide roughly which month u would like to hold your wedding and start asking the hotels abt the details cos some months r beri popular for weddings and the venue may be snap up real fast...
