@ DNCL, Thanks for your good recommendation. It shall be useful for my Jun's PS. Lets hope the weather is a fine day to start our PS. Cheers! Oh btw, do rem to bring a flat wen going for outdoor shoot in long dress as I heard it could be tiring to wear heels for the whole day. But if u r wearing short dress for outdoor shoot, then no choice...

@ Joanna, what colours are you interested in? If you have decided on the order, would you be keen to collate your order with mine cos I m also waiting for another 2 to confirm their quantity too.

@ Claire, I did not buy from MLB nor KOW before, but KOW is more flexible with colour selection for my sisters &amp; price wise is now comparable so I rather choose KOW. Unless there's even better package, then i dun mind sharing in. Maybe you may wana reconsider sharing the order with me? (~.<)

Hi jereen, thanks for your reply. Are we able to meet up with the seller to have a look at the dress? I'm interested in pink, but the purple looks nice too.

Hi all.. It's been a long time since I'm here! Busy both with wedding prep and work!

@mrschua.. I would think now or 3mths before is a good time? How far in advance do you send the actual invites?

I actually sent my STD 6-8 months ahead cos we had quite a few overseas guests.. So need to give them time to buy air tix at a good price.

@septlove are you designing your own cards? How do you want them printed? There's a few techniques such as letterpress, indigo, offset or digital.. All depends on quantity and quality you want.

hello ladies..

its June now. 3 months to Sept! the last 3 months to our wedding day!!

Just got call from my coordinator from Sheraton. really on time.. she says 3 month, really call me at the 3 month timeframe.. I was just having discussion with HTB last night, saying need to print cards already and i should contact hotel today. Josephine is right, cannot send out cards during lunar 7th month. means really no time for me as my wedding is on 1st week of Sept.. ladies where your wedding is on end Sept, think you can still send cards during last week of August, when lunar 7th month is over yea.

Puffygal, do we call the printer to check how much is the price? i got printer contact from hotel also. how should i decide which to use?

Josephine, You got your cards printed with Hotel printer too? kindly share your experience.
woah.. MIL is the controller ar? heehee. feel abit paiseh to let FMIL to help see and select our photos.. hahaa.. (she been asking how's our photos though, guess will show her only when we collect the album later)

Mrs Chua, thumbs up! no top up at all!!! I'm planing to create FB invite and start email/sms friends this weekend. its just nice 3 months time now for me.
happy.gif


ladies.. i got a question to ask. how much is the è˜é‡‘ (pin jin) your parent asking from the guy side? erm.. need to know the market rate. as in.. my parents are in malaysia. mum wants to know the singapore market rate. so she know what's the right amount to ask.
anyone care to share? can just let me know the market average... or you can PM me to tell me privately. Really appreciate your help on this!
As, both parent haven sit down to discuss the guodali details yet, as my mum haven finalised these stuff.

puffygal> depending what type of necklace u want to buy.. if is necklace + pendant, you can get it at the price of 1K. typical pricing of necklace is 400 plus. if the necklace is more fanciful.. it will cost more than $1500. ear rings wise, typical pricing is abt 500 plus. the price i mentioned abv are all with diamond.. sometimes w/o diamond may not be cheaper also. anyway i bot mine at Poh Heng.. the design not bad.. try gold heart too.. they got nice designs too.. lee hwa n soo kee abit high end i felt.

Hi ladies, good to find that this thread is very much alive and updated! My wedding is coming in Sept, and I'm mad annoyed with my wedding coordinator, Felicia, from Park Royal Beach Road. >: (

For one, she got my email address wrong initially, and when we corrected her and told her to update her database, she didn't reply. Neither did she apologize.

She just deleted the wrong email from the database, and I don't receive anymore updates from her. Only my HTB receives news from her until I sent another email to her requesting to be kept in the loop.

Then, we wanted to decide on the theme of the wedding. So we requested for the pictures for us to take a look so that we can decide in advance. It took her one whole week - no replies. I had to give her a call, and send her an ultimatum before she sent me a freaking 28MB file that clogged up my inbox!

Really, as a wedding coordinator, doesn't she know how to zip a document up, or upload them via yousendit or something?

And lastly, she kept getting our names wrongly! Even after I told her my name is Joyce (not my real name), she would reply, "Hi Janice, sorry I got your name wrong."

!??!?!?!???

hey ladies,

i'm gatecrushing in this thread, even though my AD is Oct...

I wanna order the convertible dress for MLB ( seem like the material is better), but KOW is more flexi in terms of colour selection but i am looking at 6 pics of pink and 6 pieces of blue...

currently, i hav Xingli and Jerrine's order with me, if by end of the week I can get enuff orders of 20 each, then we can proceed with MLB!

If you are keen, email me at [email protected] by Wed? I will consolidate and update all

otherwise we will go to KOW ... Xingli and Jer, u girls ok with this arrangement?

i've sent my banquet invites for printing, now waiting for friend to do up design for church invite. I've also gotten my si dian jin, it's actually white gold with diamonds from sookee. if i'm not wrong, the pin jin my parents getting would be 2k. hope that helps

qwerty : the coordinator sounds irresponsible, maybe you might want to feedback this to someone of a higher level?

hello all!

yay rururoo..a lot of things done for you then!
happy.gif

i've received my printed invites, envelope liners and envelopes...now got to assemble them! :D

qwerty i agree with rururoo..you should insist on getting another coordinator perhaps? otherwise this one might give you too much stress up to the big day.

@all if you're still thinking of doing a photobooth and need information..i finally blogged about it. i have considered most options i think! so here's the post. sorry for the unashamed self-advertising..hehe

Thanks ladies for sharing on the pinjin infor. happy for you ladies which your pinjin n guodali stuff has been arranged.
both parent won't meet till end this month to discuss in details only. and most likely my guodali will be in mid July.

Josephine, hey, Sheraton also using American Wedding Treasures. I'm going down this weekend to pick my cards only. How's things after your finalization?
Do you have to confirm the number of cards and printings you need on the spot?

I just started my Facebook invite today only. hehee.. My parent side, Mum is still asking around also. Since now we are getting the cards already, do we tell them a higher number first?

Puffygal, yes, it has quite a good range of catalog there with pricing somemore. Will be useful for me to gauge whether to use the service from Hotel or this one. How do you decide on the number of prints now?
Yes, its GSS now. Hopefully can get some nice jewellery for wedding at good pricing. hehee..

May, checked out your blog. Like your Save The Date notes very much. so COOL! I'm getting a freebie from my photographer, which is the instant photo printing during dinner itself. But guess an extra polaroid around taking photos will be cool too.

qwerty, that's really bad. you really should feedback and change a coordinator soon. Before more serious details will be taking place. (to prevent other problem ya)

Felt super guilty n pai sei.

Hello all!

Just attended a wedding last night.. English wedding so lots of dancing in the evening.. And there was also fireworks display! Ha.. Try having fireworks in Singapore!

So I was wondering.. Since I'm so out of touch now.. What the order of events is like in Singapore.. And what people expect to do at what point.

Like we'll have the cocktail reception then dinner.

When do you take group photos? When do you cut the cake? Do people dance? What do you do during dinner? When do you say goodbye to guests or do they just come up to you when they want to leave?

Sorry a lot of questions! Thanks!
