I haven't gotten those traditional stuff yet but I read that there are a couple of shops in chinatown. I chanced upon such a shop at amk central as well.

Hi fellow jun 2011 btbs! My AD is on 12th june, rom on same day. Currently looking for a JP. I emailed Dr Phua but he is booked on the timing that i want. So sad. Any recommendations for a fatherly JP who is good in english and friendly and allows us to say our own vows?

Hi Lyn - Thanks. The rates are rather attractive but then it requires a 3 days rental. Meaning collect on fri and return on Mon. Too many days for me.

purplebottle - actually i like planning too. But i always find that HTB not very interested. He always leave it to me to make decision which i dun really like. So after sometime i also become sianz with all these

you can try to neg on the rental period...i'm sure it can be arranged.. ^^

i'm somewhat in the same situation as you now, HTB also likes to leave most of the decision making to me when I needed his input and help..makes me upset at times too that i find planning a chore and wonder why i can't be just like him and don't bother...

missy: same! htb is more interested in the house but i still go ahead and plan everything on my own because i find joy in doing that

Lyn - in fact i enjoy planning but his "simply dun care" attitude sometimes annoys me alot.Everything also leaves it to me. We quarrel a few times over this and i try to delegate some works to him but he always take his own sweet time to do it. Today i just told him to discuss with his family abt the draft guest list.

Purplebottle - ya he also more interested in the house. But sometime his "dun care attitude" makes me feel that he simply dun care abt me. Thou i know thats not what he means.

By the way, i am trying to find a MUA for my hubby. Style him nice nice before fetching me and also during the dinner banquet. i know sometime when we engage a MUA they will do it for the groom for the dinner. But i am considering a mua for his morning too.

Any recommendation.

missy: same here! i've also argued with him a few times over wedding matters...kinda sick of it coz must keep pushing him to get things done...he just don't sense the urgency till it's too late, then i'll let him handle himself =X

Just finished my outdoor shoot yesterday, but didn't get to do shoots at botanic gardens and nightscenes as it's raining...so gotta do my outdoor shoot on the same day as my indoor shoot next month...it's was really fun! but start to feel the tiredness when we got home last night...lol...

Hi girls!
Mine AD on 4 June. Oso face same issue as some of u
happy.gif
htB is very relaxed and wait for me to tell him what to do tho he says he is our wedding planner. Is it a guy thing?? He will do when I ask him to do but sometimes I jus wan him to initiate the planning and stuff. Haiz no sense of urgency. I think I've accepted it ba..glad I'm not alone in this!

Haa..welcome to the club! I think it is like this but I realised if I ask him or request him to do certain things like call the contractor, find this out or do that, he will do..other than that, playing starcraft is more impt!

How are you gals coping with work and wedding? I feel really tired..wanting to go for some exercise or facial but really couldnt find time and energy..

Muji, for the time being, physically is not stress. Financially stress. Worry that money not enough.

Indeed Irene, it is the money, I can understand totally..We have the house, the reno, the furniture, wedding, bridal, banquet, AD costs and ang paos..wow, I also dun dare to count but I think what will come will come, we will manage!

My HTB and I promised each other, we will not quarrel over anything in this period of time...

Purplebottle, it is time we get one soon!If not, I hope the MUA can do miracles...

In need of a good facial and massage too. Been so busy baking CNY goodies for sale, I'm aching all over.

mrsmaotan: pls send me the info on the facial. ^^

If you guys live in the west, I recommend my facialist in Bt Gombak! They also have an outlet in Jurong East. I've been to both, but prefer the Gombak one, cuz it's more spacious and the atmosphere more soothing.

La Belle de Face and Body Care. PM me if you want their numbers.

Really good service and I always fall asleep during my facial cuz it feels so good.

leyash - Yes, it's a shopfront. I am taking collagen-hydration something facial. $88 for the face only. If you want the eye treatment it is an add on. The package is Buy 10 get 1 free.

I don't find that pushy, but that's because I have gone to them since they are newly established more than 3 years ago in JE and then to the branch in BB. Started off with eyebrow threading and I only signed up a facial package with them recently. So to me, they are like friends already, so I am v frank with them and them with me as well. :p But that's my personal take after being with them for 3 years. YMMV.

May: I've send you the contacts gal.
I've chosen my gowns already, but my coordinator says that I can choose my gowns again in April as well, as they will be bringing new gowns (hope there are nice ones XD).

mrsmaotan: wow, that's very fast on the reno. I'll only get to start on my reno in Apr when I'm back from my trip for ROM. Wonder if there's enough time for the reno to be completed b4 the wedding.

summer: welcome gal!

oh yeah May, since you are still new in preparations, perhaps I can suggest my PGs to you, from 10eyesGallery - http://www.singaporebrides.com/forumboard/messages/7/1609992.html?1296397208

They are friendly, with good understanding of each other. Sign up with their promotion and you get 2 main PGs for less than 3k, which is very very attractive considering their quality of works! But hope their slots are still open for your date as they told me (during contract signing) that the promotions brought in a lot of queries but they are limiting their jobs per year.

Good luck!

bebelee: I booked Dr Phua at 5 pm. Is that your timing too?

kass: May I have the address of the salon?

hi love_asa,

i was trying to get dr phua for 6pm but he said he is only available for 4pm or 8pm. 4pm is too early cos the guests who are coming for the solemnization will haf no place to go till the dinner and 8 is too late cos we dun want to do it in the ballroom. I just managed to confirm another JP a few days ago. One more impt thing settled. =)

Hi, I am a June bride too. I have booked the hotel, PG, VG, taken our photoshoot, food tasting, meet the parents session. What's next? The hotel coordinator has not contacted us. When should we start liaising with them on the theme etc? Is there anything that I can do at the meantime? Cos don't want to leave everything to nearer the date.

bebelee: oh I guess he takes roughly an hour for the whole procedure so might not be able to rush down in time. Where's ur solemnization held? Mine is at Goodwood Park. Was telling my htb maybe we could sponsor the guests some durian puffs so they would have something to do (eat) in between :p
 

purplebottle

New Member
jtsy: you had your food tasting already? that's early!

love_asa: i'm holding my solemnization and dinner at GWP too ;) we're probably going to have some canapes for the guests.

I'm so overwhelmed with work and the house and so frustrated with him at times when he cant be bothered with the wedding. Its like lately been looking through the various pg and vg online portfolio and he so bo chup... haiz...

Most guys are like that de...you gotta push them...like for me, I shortlist a few for him n forced him to make a decision...now i'm busy with prep for my ROM next month, and he finally realised the urgency and is helping with the major prep...
