happylilone (happylilone) & jastanyy:

I didnt calculate the dates for both myself and husband not even the dates for my parents or in laws.relieve to see on the calendar that at least they didnt indicate 11 Nov 2011 is not good for wedding..at least can choose the timing.

I was kept in secret my bf and his cousin went to search for wedding venue themself in sept.. The day when I am there it is confirmation for placement of deposit to confirm the dates.

Anyway I am in a lost.. dont know which bridal studio to go too what are the things that I should look out for. As for JP seems like still early to book them?

Pinkbinzz: personally I think it not a must to calc the dates la.. We did it cos hubby runs a biz.. So it's an assurance.. The master oso said 3mths before and after cannot be involved in any funerals or happy occasions.. But my good pals are all marrying or ROMing ard my AD and ROM! And I wun wan to miss them at all! So we pick and choose wad to follow and wad not to.. Hahahh

studio wise, u may wan to go studio shopping, see which studio's gowns and photography u like the best.. And prob sign up with your preferred at a show or something.. For us, I did some homework and managed to buy over a package from a fellow forummer.. And actually saved half if wad we wud pay, really value for money.. Get your package fast, cos prices will increase..

JP, since your date is super hot, if your intended JP is super popular, it is advisable that u start contacting him/her 4-5 mths in advance.. My ROM's in Jan next yr and I contacted my JP in sept this yr.. Talk abt being kiasu..

happylilone : care to advise me on the name and contact number of the master that u seek help from?

By the way have u heard of things like sisters cant be marry or bride cant wear pink?

What's the name of your JP? Let me know if he/she is good then I can consider inviting him/her.

Pinkbinzz: we got our dates from David Tong.. U can reach him at 9829 9670..

I've heard of the part abt sis can't be married or can't wear pink.. Ok.. I hv no idea wads the thing behind sis can't be married, the only thing is prob afraid that she may be pregnant by the time your wedding comes bah.. One of my jiemei is married btw.. For the pink part, traditionally, when the bride wears a pink Kua on the day of her marriage, means that she's the 2nd wife of the guy.. So that's where the pink story come from..

My JP's Mr Koh Kok Weng, I've met him once.. V easy going guy.. Yup.. Will keep u updated after my ROM!

Jas: thanks in advance.

I did browse most of it seems like not very attractive..in the terms of the prices they are selling and packages inside..

actually not kiasu is plan ahead..its always good to plan in advance..not like me i only have venue..now bridal studio i have to hunt for it i do it with friends coz my husband he will just follow what i want lol..

Rings should be the next one.. where did u bought your bands?i prefer something v simple..he too prefer without diamonds.

By the way how much is your package and where is it from?

Jas: yar! We were eyeing a pair from love and co, by the time we wanted to buy, the price increase and it's no longer value for money since it's like 1.7k for plain bands.. Gold price keeps shooting..

Pinkbinzz: I got my bands just recently from Vivodiamonds, where we got our engagement ring from actually.. Went ard searching for bands and either din like the designs or the fact that they can't be customised.. So went back to them though their wedding bands are more ex... We chose design, service and flexibility over price lor.. I'm getting my bands soon! Yeah!

happylilone: I am so happy for u must be very looking forward to it.. I am still waiting for my proposed ring..he has yet to propose lol...

how much does wedding bands cost? for one ring or a pair price?customised require how long?

Pinkbinzz: i also only got venue, PS is with a taiwan bridal. I am going ala carte for actual day but haven start sourcing for WG/EG. My fiance will settle the photography part as he used to be a full time photographer.

I bought my destinee wedding bands from The Diamond Atelier @ Vivo (Lee Hwa). The prices ranges from 400+ to a few thousands, depends on your budget. No harm walking in and trying on a few ones to see what design you like (",)

hi pinkbinzz, i onli got date for timing wise not yet find out, anyway for mine he onli give us a book of dates to choose from not reli calculated so dun think u will wan. haha

Happylilone, we got our bands from love and co. but after wearing i feels tat its very ezily dirty cos we choose one with a lot of lines in between.
our band is abt 2k plus for a pair, which is half a yr ago pricing.

Pinkbinzz: honestly speaking, a pair of wedding bands can cost from $600 a pair to $2500 per ring.. Of cos I'm comparing from Taka to Tiff & Co..

If u are looking for something simple and without diamonds, any love and co design can cost ranging from $1500 to $2000? And it also depends on ring size, extra $$ got to be added as well if u or bf fall out of the range:
Gals: 8-12
Guys: 15-18

we bought ours at 1.8k with slight customisation and my bf's ring size of 22.. And the owner actually gave us a v v good price as we are returning customers plus we introduce all our frens to him.. All of frens who bought from him loved the service btw..

As for timeline, it took us 2 mths.. From buying, sizing and engraving.. Bear in mind that shops may not hv ready stock for your intended bands for your sizes.. *u may not want to buy off shelf cos usually they are display sets*.. So popular shops like love and co need abt 3-4 mths in advance to make your bands..

Btb: hey! the pair we were eyeing from LVC also had a lot of grooves.. its the pair with yellow, rose and white gold one.. yar lor.. half a yr ago they quoted me abt $1.8k already.. i think with my bf's extraordinary big ring.. it'll add to abt 2k..

that's why we went elsewhere to buy after that...

Jas: Thanks for the advise will go look around.. nice at least your husband helps u on the photographer..

Sometimes I wonder if I am too anxious and kiasu to look around?seems like everything like too early for me.

Happylilone: where is vivodiamond located?probably i can see see..I also wish for custom make something differ..urs is a white, gold or platinum?
Apprently i heard white gold will turn yellow.

btb: thanks

Pinkbinzz: Vivodiamonds is at far east shopping centre, by appt only.. If u are interested, do visit their webbie www.vivodiamond.com to book an appt..

Mine is white and rose gold.. With 30 small diamonds.. In my band.. Wad amazed us more was the craftsmanship.. Highly recommended!

Yar.. White gold will turn yellow, tts cos white gold is 75% yellow gold.. Platinum's v soft and will change shape over time..

Littlerabbit: I wrote $1.8k in one of my post above.. But like I've also stated before, we are returning customers (my engagment ring is from there) and introduced our frens to them..

I can't say that the price will apply for all customers.. And neither did we introduce Vivodiamonds to frens and u gals here to gain discounts.. we recommend cos it is worthy of our time to recommend cos of the excellent service and high quality..

Yup.. If u are interested, do like wad I first started.. Book an appt and I'm pretty much sure the price quoted to u is a fair one..

Hi Cheryl, the service i got from Diamond Atelier is quite good. The lady who's serving us is pleasant and did not show any displease thou I tried many rings including those on display outside. I took quite about almost an hour to finalise my choice! They have a few range of rings so you need to see which kind of design you prefer. No harm gg down and try on a few (",)

Littlerabbit: hope u find something u like! And do rem that the bands can be customised to your liking.. We took one of their existing designs and added rose gold to it and both me and fiancé loves it!

There are oso couples that produced their own design for them to make.. That of course comes with a pricetag.. But u can definitely trust them with their craftmanship..

Cheryl (angeldoll),

Do check out Diamond Atelier. They do have nice range of wedding band - thick and slim type.

Me and HTB went to the branch at Vivo and had a very good deal. Bought it on the spot! The service is good too! Too pushy at all, even encourage us to think through the day!

lily930: Congrats to you~

12 Nov 2011 is also a hot date (apparently it's a good date according to Tong Shu). So I guess you better give Peony Jade a call to check if the date is still available. Good luck!!!
