hello all!! i'm posting from Florence! finally got internet. heheh...can't pull myself away from this forum!
xingli..and floss too!! you need to get in between the teeth too!
im so tempted to get those invisible 6month braces...can't tolerate my wonky rabbit teeth anymore... but so expensive..hai.
i think 2 to 3 weeks before for invites might be leaving it a bit too late? There's not much room for changes right? I think I agree with Xingli and Junie...send Save The Dates via email first, and then send invites later. I plan to do that too.
Sc_Nah..wow!!! congrats!!! where have you got your new home?
Haha u are addicted to this forum le hehe.
hmmm floss teeth... i think i m lazy... haiz
Hmmm right 2 - 3 weeks might be a bit late.
Hmmm how about 5 - 6 weeks? Maybe after that have to do constant follow up on the ppl attending when coming down to last 2 weeks.
U gals are good men i din even foresee this loh..
Hmmm yeah Sc_Nah hmm hehe where's ur love nest? And is move in condition?
Hmmmm Junie... hehe hmm FB sometimesgot some isseus they got this apps call wedding buzz i guess. Hmmm seems like not bad got this save the dates function.
@May: thanks.. i've also collected some cakes designs that i love.. maybe we can exchange ideas through email? please email me @ [email protected]
@Mrs_Ng: Yap.. i've started a very-low carb diet.. hopefully i'm disciplined enough to maintain for the next 10 mths.. ^_^
August 2011 is ghost month? oh no!!!
by the way, when should the GDL be ah?
I was thinking of sending out invites in june/july.. for overseas friends.. i think we should inform them 1st so that they can make necessary arrangements if they are keen on attending our wedding..
Thanks thanks for all the congrats .. my nest still in e east ... at flora road ... got one of the cheaper condo there as the price is almost same as the resale HDB flat ... the condition is very good almost can move in just furnish but hubby say will do up the dream wardrobe as its his promise to me ...so will reno reno ..
MrsNg - If use Fb then how about those ppl you nv invite ? if they see the event also abit not so nice .. abit worried .. Recently my cousin use FB for her baby 1st bdae.. no response except 2 pax wor ..
Would any of you gals going for the UV light thingy for whitening your teeth ?? very tempted cos gt many coffee stain .. abit scare i smile that day is Z colour ..so maybe go UV light to make it D colour!!
Wedding prep ... haiz ... i still looking for AD PG&VG.. those that hubby like will explode the budget ... then the rest he lazy to see.. haiz ...
Live band wise i remeber yourstruely is really good , attended a dinner and i must say the kewei is really gd ...
Jacqueline - you also have alot oversea frens ? I have alot of oversea friends and relative ... die ..duno where to put them up if that is such popular date ... My own hotel is too ex... so must look ard ..any suggestion ?
Jacqueline => My wedding is on 23 Sep and my GDL is on 11 Sept wor. Need a master / go to the temple to help u pick a date for GDL. Also for An Chuang.
Sc_nah => I am also thinking of engaging a live band for my wedding wor cos I love to sing. =p Might be getting "Music Box". yourstruely is slightly more expensive cos they have a few superstar contestants as their singers =)
junie: i think its fine to send email or sms to inform your friends and colleagues that you're getting married in sept and to get them to confirm their attendance 1st than before you send out the invites to them in sept to rsvp again or if you think its too rush perhaps you can consider sending them out at the tail end of the lunar 6th mth.
as for live band i like kewei from yours truly too especially with the harp but you're right the price is indeed more expensive than the others but i didn't know about music box perhaps can have a look see at their website.
I think you won't regret signing up with Z wed, i saw the PS photos and i totally love the photos taken by the photogs from CL studio. I almost sign up with them myself but the package is not as attractive as the other BS so i have signed up with another BS as me and my HTB are trying to keep within our budget. So you don't have to worry. I'm sure you're in good hands and i hope you get skyy as your photog, she's a very nice lady
Hi all, tmr is PH leh! wahaha.. It's a short working week!
Venetia => Thanks for the assurance! As what Xingli has said, I'll also make the best out of what I have. Jus hope i dun need to top up photos cos i really like their gowns and photography very much. =)
May => i may have a prewedding holiday too! but with my gfs to bintan. wahahha... big diff from urs la. =p
For sharing => I'm getting quotations for video and photographer for AD. Like not very cheap leh... sigh...
Hello all! Hope you're enjoying your PH!! I'm back to work today!!
Junie..that still sounds very good! I'm sure you will enjoy your girly holiday!!
BTW all, need a bit of help here since you have all booked or looked at BS.
My mum is looking for her mother-of-bride dress already..and my HTB will be looking for tailors as well for his suit when we are back in 2 weeks. My mum suggested going to BS to look at her dress and my HTB's suit..and I'm also looking for a short bolero for my dress (which I have bought already here).
Anyone knows good BS I can look at for these? Do you know if they do packages without the wedding dress? (Probably not but giving it a shot!) My mum suggested going to Chinatown to have a look?
Junie: I just sign up for my AD videographer for $1250 nett. Includes 10-11 hrs of videography, 1 SDE highlights/photo montage or wedding MTV, 1 2hr raw footages in DVD and a poster (in a theme that you like) can't recall if i missed anything out but that's about it and he also have a grp of photographers. Their basic photographers cost about $688 nett (includes 10 hrs of service and return of all photos in DVD, if you wanna develope the photos into a coffee table book that's is another $300 which he told us is not necessary and if we wanna develope any photos for friends or relatives we can do so since we have the softcopies). If you sign up for both with him he will give you a 10% discount.
Let me know if you need his details.
May: What kind of dress is your mum looking for in specific? If she's looking for Cheongsam can go to Chinatown Yue Hwa or People's Park (the one with the food centre on level 1, next to OG), 2nd floor there is this lady that tailors very nice cheongsam forgot name of shop.
I suppose for men's suit, its easier. Can always go to Emanual Z or G2
Hihi gals long time din log in le... hmmm may I oso not sure Hu to engage yet still thinking about it cos I scare too many stuff might be messy... As for FB invites I not really sure whether it's useful but it's another alternative bah... Guess no matter which method we use we still have to keep following up with calls n SMS... Hmmm venetia so they provide express highlight? If yes then the pricing is cool!!!
I sign with digio , they offer me photopackage with or without the rental or the wedding dress as i may have my tailor make the gown for me ...
So u can actually change your wedding gown to either a tailor made dinner evening gown or rental of mothers dress or what .. usually they negotiable .. but is must make sure u state what u wan and get them to write down before u sign ...
I heard from my friend bukit timah plaza got this tailor do cheongsum very nice, the fit very good , haven try ... u gals might wana go see..tink 3rd floor or what ..
may: for men's suit and shirts, you can visit Personality and Men's Tradition. Both shops are located in Peninsular Plaza. My fiance had his suit tailored by Men's Tradition and shirts tailored by Personality. The price is reasonable and takes about 2 weeks to be ready..
I had my CS tailored by this home-based seamtress in Tampines.. She has quite alot of raves in this forum and price is also reasonable... She tailors bridemaids' dresses and mother dresses too..
Sc_Nah>> Hehe hmmm not to worry, the AD PG n VG told me only starting from Sept onwards then got many couple the rest of the months is very slow.
Hmmm we are like 10 months away from wedding eh... Still far relax dun need to worry...
For AD PG n VG i will recommend what i m taking hmm Forest production. This is if u like journialidm type of photos cos i realize not everyone like this type of style hehe.
Hmmm just to share with u all y i like them so much hehe. This yr apr i decided to sign up with them after i go through Fotowerke, Melvin Ho and also Forest Production.
Then my HB agree that Forest Production's work suits what we like so we sign up with them at a package deal of $3700.
after negotiating with them, they provide us a discount of $100. So we sign contract. Until the day before i received an email from them saying that they are having a promotion n will extend the new pricing n freebies to me.
I m also allow to change my freebies to save on the money. Most impressive is they had lower their price for this package, n they willing to deduct another $100 from my current package.
Its totally making me so excited n impress by their alternative. Cos how often will the ppl even bother to deduct back the difference and be fair to everyone? Cos its like i booked them earlier mah so i should pay at the premium, so i m totally impress by their working attitude.
10 mths say long, not very long. Say short, not very short. haha... But am sure that it should be enjoyable de. =p
I smiled to sleep last nite when I know there is only 10 mths left. We will be able to count down in single digit soon! heehee...
Sc_nah => I am also in the midst of getting quotations for my AD PG and VG. Should be able to confirm them soon. Spoke to a friend about it and she told me that we should ask them out to see if they look pleasant. haha. In case they have sad / fierce face, it might spoil our big day since we need to see them the whole day.
I agree with Junie, its good that you meet up with your AD PG & VG otherwise its so weird to meet them on the day of your wedding and they'll be there with you most of the day and if you're not comfortable with them think you won't look nice and relaxed in the photos cos you'll be so awkard looking.
I like my PG he's very nice to talk to and quite comical so I think it'll be quite fun with him around.
I really cant wait for 2011 to be here men...
cant wait to select my gowns, take PS, get the GDL n an chuang thingy hee hee
my neck is like super long liao...
Personally i felt it important to have rapport with your AD PG n VG
it would be gd if you can meet up with them before the AD
believe the pictures will turn out even better with they have "chemistry" with both of you =)
everyone is coming back to the thread, cause 2011 is near! hehe.
we got our wedding bands from Soo Kee yesterday
so happy, but must wait 3 months haha.
I agree with the rapport thing, i met up with my PG and we hit off pretty well, VG was kinda quiet but after awhile he was fine, most important is PG must be outgoing cause he must gather people to take photos
ya ya... i agree with Mrs Ng leh... when ppl ask me when's my big day,i sometime hesistate if i should tell them now cos they will surely say there's still a long way to go. haha... but to those who had been thru this period, they will tell me i dun have much time left =p
by the way gals, can ask u all about solemniser? have u all contacted them? or it is still early to do so?
Hmm i can recommend my one!!! Let me know if you need.
He is a superb nice and friendly guy! I really appreciate his help a lot!!!
Yah Junie, i always have that... hmm still far away look from your AD.... but its ok lah hehe its only 10 months away not and i think hmmm we are getting there soon hehe esp its yr end u know lah time really flies during this period hehe.
Hmmm i think its one month before oso can if yours' is not a popular date...
Mine was becos my HDB came quite early so i have solemize within three months. N one of the months happen to be Hungry Ghost Festival.
ya i think its abit early to get solemizer but if you know of one and you wanna "book" that person 1st think you can start checking that person's schedule liao.
i'm having a church wedding so i'll be getting my church's priest so no issue for me but need to go and collect the certificate from ROM
Sc_Nah>> Really? Hmmm well can think about it total price ard 3K plus n hor with SDE. Now they got one promotion, if u dun wan coffee table album can request for express highlight.. save some cost... Ask them for a quote no obligations one hehe...
i think in total should be 2.9K for basic of coffee table album. Den if u need the express highlight den add another 400 dollars.
Hmm i think i for filman video and one eye click oso but EXP!!!... haha....
Morning gals!!! 15 days from my ps I m kinda freak out... Keep worrying on weight gain... Anyway I m think of my color theme I previously bought one mag on diff type of color matching tone... Maybe can scan n pass to u all
