Hi moodyliser, preparation so far still ok but montage have not done yet. JP, invitation cards, favours, GDL, an chuang will be done in the next few weeks/months already.
for JP my bf already have someone in mind cos is also his bro JP, but hopefully he will be free on that day. maybe u can ask around ur married frens for JP and have a few names just in case they are not free.
True too, my frens asking aug not 7th month meh.. but is 2 weeks before 7th month, so preparation wise is not restricted cos of tradition.

Hi Kitty_Pretty_Angel, dont stress yourself so much if not when the time comes u more kan cheong. try to go thru ur checklist to see wat u have missed out.

kitty, you are so fast in Invitation card selection. Printed?
Btw have a great fun in taiwan.
My frz recommend to go to JP, near Taman Sentosa there to get GDL stuffs

Cher, same - i couldn't located kitty in FB too.
Mani and Pedi, i will go to Centrepoint Nail Palette. The pple are really good and rates are reasonable.
Cher same to you, have a great fun in your bridal shoots.

Blurry, i asked a few JPs. they have standard reply - to advise again closer to the date , max 3 months.

4 months to go!!

Purple gal,
Which hotel you booked? so that i can go there have a look of the theme and give advise accordingly.
but it sound fairy tale
DId your banquet private invitation card design? usually they do. some banquets give standard design and some wide range. Do check out with them

For wedding band, ay design u looking at? usually standard is go Love and Co.

Kitty
I went to taman sentosa today. and got the contact
https://www.facebook.com/pages/Coupe-De-Marriage-浪漫满屋/217483564979803
the price are cheaper than singapore (same rate in SG but in MYR)

I did my nail stylish in nail palette $28 for gel color, and addition $15 for bling. simple and long lasting (1 month!).
 
Hi moodyliser, my venue is at One Degree 15 in Sentosa Cove. It will be held in a 3-storey glass building. Yeap, you are right. It will be quite a magical, fairytale feeling, but not so specific such as "Cinderella", "Alice in Wonderland" kind
happy.gif
That's why I wanna ask you girls what comes to your mind when you hear the word "Enchanted", so I know what I am preparing meets what my guests might be expecting ;)

The venue does not provide wedding invitation cards. I am now sourcing for a card supplier and printer that can design something relevant to my theme. Might go JB one of these days to check out T&T as recommended in forums.

For wedding bands, we have been to a few places to view. Are inclined towards designs that have a mixture of rose gold and white gold. I am undecided on whether I want a single stud diamond or a half-row type :D My hubby doesn't need too bling bling ring, but he wants one that is not so slim.

HI purple,

Mixture of rose gold and white gold can be found in Love and Co, Lee Hwa, Gold Heart. they have many variety - with/without diamond stud or solid bands. for ladies can get dual ring where one ring is rose and the other is white gold. Some have row of diamond on one of the ring. If you are looking at rings that would match your engagement ring. Just get a simple single half row of diamond on white gold. then guys is more flexible.


Invitation Cards: Saw many Cards shop at top floor of City square for your reference. Mine invitation card shop is American Wedding Treasure in singpaore, haven't got a chance to talk to them. Check out on Singapore Brides forum. Lots of recommendation

Theme: Enchanting - Silver, white and bling
 
Hey all, do you think it is a good idea to do wedding magnet invitation rather than cards? Am considering that for friends and colleagues. Relatives think still stick to cards, cos of the space needed for the wordings -_-"

Hi purple, i saw another adv for invitation cards
www.focal-ad.com

Personally i think wedding card is better than magnet as i need 2 languages. Most pple may not keep the magnet and end up in trash bin which will be same fate with wedding card. then wedding card will be cheaper than magnet.
 
Hi again all, need your opinions again... I don't want to wear a kua for the tea ceremony and am planning to get a cheongsam. Any idea whether the cheongsam must be red? And is it better to get a long cheongsam rather than a short one?

P.S. Both our immediate families are not very superstitious, die die must follow customs type. But just want to check out the "norms" cos all relatives will be there, don't want them to say this say that :p

Hi purplegalz,
Kua and Cheong Sum are OPTIONS as tea dress. There are pple wearing short dress for tea ceremony.
there are no rules for cheongsum. Just get what you want.
Most important, the overall design must fit you beautifully - be it long or short; red or black or white; lacy or batik
I got purple!

Hi all, I have invited Dr Phua to be my solemnizer, but he is only available at 5pm or 7pm instead of the 6pm I planned for, so I am working out my schedule again... Just want to ask, how long does the ROM take? Dr Phua mentioned 20 mins. Is that the norm i.e. not too rushed nor too draggy?

hi kitty,
though i asked him eailer this year, he didn't want to commit. recent i called him, and he say he only free at 5pm and need to be go at 523pm. so where is your venue, if i took up, i am sure he will be late for your venue. Anyway i reject him, why need to rush!? and i don't wan the even to be too early.

HI purple, 20 mins is good if he is chop chop and has next appointment
 
hello,

juz collected our inserts and need to sit down to insert them n write guest names on the cards..

check wif u all huh..do u give tasks like tieing of strings/ribbons to the invitation cards, write guests names, arrange guest seating etc to your jiemeis?

also other than gatecrushing the hongbaos to b shared by them. do u think i will need to bao hongbaos to them if my parents r not gng to give??

hi kitty,
That's great. My invitation card is delay for one month - mid may to mid june
sad.gif
some more not guarantee.
Usually invitation card (include tight ribbon, and writing) and guest seating arrangement is done by you. On AD, you just need let your jiemei who is receptionist to know how seating are arrange.

You need to arrange angbao for the kids who visited you and your hubby houses and that are not married, to give them during AD.
I heard is abt $4 or $6.
For jiemei, just the gatecrashing angbao will do, they will share among them (split money)
