elmo>> i booked 30tables 2 reserve.. but currently hitting 40tables.. didnt expect that, but lucky to get a ballroom with greater buffer..

I wld rather go for a cosy and casual wedding venue like yours if I have a choice!

E|m0, mine is a minimum 35 tables... currently it seems like we may hit 35 tables since the original numbers I had reserved for my colleagues was mush more conservatives...

hi ahgargar! yup it was so fun! heh... my makeup took too long though. started at 6.30 (actually 6.45 cos MUA got lost, my house v difficult to find), then supposed to end make up at 8.30 but i ended my makeup at about... 9? then change ingowns, travel to 1st shoot already 9.45... supposed to start at 9 am! but in the end, managed to cover all the locations... really glad we made it. finished the shoot at 7 or 8 i think. really thank God for the perrrrrrfect weather! NO HAZE, and NO RAIN... and it wasn't that hot either! i only had 1 makeup but it lasted through the day. then the MUA taught me how to unpin some hair halfway so that i got two looks, one updo and one down do, cos no time to meet her again for a makeup change. now just waiting to see the photos =) i really enjoyed my shoot! i guess the fun is in the entire process... mtg with the PG, planning, collecting props, and of course, enjoying the day. i really felt very relaxed so i hope i look natural in the shots! girls, remember to just relax and enjoy the day! don't worry about the timing and everything. be happy and look happy!! =)

* (giraffe~) > Your PS really take very long time.. Should be very tiring bah? Last time my PS end ard 8pm+ (but I started makeup at 1230), super tired until I really dont know how to smile liao. Ha

haha. u started at 12 30? wa. i started at 06 30. lol. no wonder my bridal studio was a bit shocked that i asked my MUA to come so early. hmm.. actually i don't feel tired. and i feel that we take v few photos. even though probably taken hundreds. lol. i only feel tired after unloading all our props and gowns from my HTB's car... and trying to pack all the props away in my house. THAT is more tiring. lol.

CandySiew:u will only do ur AD gown selections only in Jan? so ur AD gown is OTR?

ahgargar (ahgargar) > My AD in early Mar. normally ppl will do invitation card 1 mth earlier. BUt mine will meet CNY so most probably need to do it earlier to avoid delay/rushing...
Yup, my AD gown is OTR. I choose JB BS, normally PS gown n AD gown choose separately. However, I did plan to purchase AD gown online if unable to find wat i like.

Joeann Lim (joeannlim) > JIayou. Just rem, no matter how tire you are, just smile as much as u can. Dont give PG a tired look.

I had my final choosing of gowns for PS last week.. having my PS in December. Somehow I'm not very pleased with my choice of gowns leh.. But I went to choose again already.. oh well. Hope that everything goes well. Pray also that weather will be good for my PS. Meanwhile still need to lose more weight!! =[ =[ =[

I think now is the time where I need to get busy!! Need to do plan where to go for PS, polish my wedding bands, (they're v badly scratched! careless me!), source for another photographer, think of guest list. I'm getting stressed thinking I've got 38 tables to fill.....

luvluv> You're going Taiwan for PS, right? enjoy ya... Bring umbrella, water bottle + straw + wet tissue (esp for long hour outdoor).

E|m0 (em0)> Where do you hold the banquet?

luvluv>> so sorry I cant help with what to bring.. my PS was so short, I only brought along my hp... lol! i think I shared to bring the make-up puff that is similar to those that come with the loose powder to dab ur perspiration away. A MUA taught me..

elmo>> think my PG is the choose first edit later type.. hah~

stickytape>> 38 tables should be fine? dun worry so much.. most imptly, dun miss out ppl!

u looking for another PG for AD? why not 2 PGs frm the same company?

@j0yle Cause i'm engaging those kind of journalistic PG for my AD.. and I don't want to 'waste' his time taking table shots for me. So going to engage another (cheaper) PG to help me with my table shots while he focus on capturing the important moments.

For PS, i think it's important to bring portable fan, lots of water (bottled with straw), make up to touch-up, tissue paper, cotton buds, extra pair of shoes to walk in... anything else?

luvluv> Your BS didnt tell you? My BS requested guy to bring white shirt, black pant and black shoe (white shoe if any). The chinese style suit, white pant/blazer kind, black shirt,etc is provided. They said if you dont bring also can, they should have extra to lend you but maybe the size is not fit you so well. As when I select the PS gown (1 wk b4 the PS), only bride keep on trying gowns but groom do nothing. Ha^^

You're going Taiwan, maybe a bit cold le. Do you consider buying "nuan bao" (heat bag? I dont know wat does it call)?

LuvLuv = my PS shop request my bf to bring black + white long sleeve. Black pant. Black + white socks. black & white shoes. tat all
 
Thank you...

I check with my BS, she say bring shirt n jeans, black shoe, white n black shocks only...

Candy > I know tat, i hav 1 which bought at China... But this can help to reduce cooling?

luvluv> Then do as what the BS told you. Maybe they hav other arrangement. I saw my friend's photos, his wife wear purple gown then BS gives him a purple short + own jeans.

I nv used it b4 but my friend said his wife feel very cold when taking outdoor PS. They went Taiwan last Dec.

j0yle_t, yep! wore it for the indoor shoot! luckily never wear our door... my shoe was kinda spoiled because the crystal came out when I went outdoor.. luckily never spoil our mood!

luv@luv, we bought casual wear for our PS and we bought casual shoes to match it as well! its important to have another pair of shoes because like mine the crystals came out but I did not chang my shoes until I changed into my casual wear! and almost couldn't walk by the end of the day.. Hubby brought his own shirts to go with the Tux and Suits as well...

smilem, I did not join coz my friend wanted to meet up to pass us her wedding invite...

Luvluv>> like what cowcow say, can bring a pairs of shoes for casual walking around esp. if you going to quite a few places..

cowcow>> i brought 2 shoes, but end up wearing my AD shoe cos' the one intended for PS was too white for the EG.. and bit upset that i scratched the leather base quite badly cos' we walked on bare grass patches..

u gotten your another shoe for AD?

its always nice to have some pics with the AD gown cos' it's always the favourite!
