Hi lovelies! I'm a Sep 2013 BTB as well! We have decided on the date and have shortlisted Pan Pacific for the banquet and will be checking out the place on Tue! we r now shortlisting the BS.. some advice needed here! We actually have a few PG that we really love their style. If we book the PG for the pre-wedding shoot,does the PG package include gowns and make-up artist?

HI All.. Congrats to you all! My date is 8.9.13. Had my Prewed Pic Last oct with Ivy Bride in Taiwan. Super friendly people and I managed to get my Pictures one month later ( too early i know... -__-"). I end up spending about $4,000 (including 1 full male suits + Airtix of $1,200)

My wedding will not be in Singapore but now I am searching where to get a good Bridesmaid long dress.

To all sept brides!
I think we are all going to share this same problem. As u all know our wedding date is during the 8th month of the chinese calendar, and the month before is the 7th month which is the ghost festival. My relatives are advising me not to do anything related to the wedding during that month. All invitations and guo da li have to be done before the ghost month. I checked the chinese calendar and ghost month begins from 7th Aug 2013 to 4th sept 2013. Which means most of us will be affected by the 7th month!
So maybe everyone should be aware of this issue and print ur wedding invitations and give it out earlier too! Do all wedding stuff before the 7th month! I have to start planning my guo da li date and all so that i don't forget!! =)

Hi All, my date is 8 Sept 13. Basically have not booked anything. Still looking for a unique venue. Asked for a wedding package at Flutes at the Fort but they provided a Western Menu which is a major problem as the groom side family does not consume Beef due to religious reasons.

Searched for Tuk Long Restaurants too but the menus online all have Sharks Fin.

Seems like everyone has booked their venue and BS. Should i start panicking?

I chose friends. Personally, I think you should people that you are comfortable with.

I know of others who have engaged professional emcees though. This ensures that all your friends will be able to have fun, not worrying about getting on stage throughout the whole night. It is really up to you!

Hi peeps,

My Wedding is on 7 Sept 13, am looking for MUA for my mum & sis for morning & night.. Any good recommendations, especially MUAs whom you have personally used? Cheers!
 
Hi everyone, for the emcee for ur wedding dinner, who did u approach?

ur family, friends or colleagues or engage a experienced emcee outside?

I got my friends to do it... Attended professional emcees before but I think it's better to have friends cos they know you well and it just feels more real, know what I mean?

As for preparation, I'm really sweating... So many details to attend to!

This month supposed to do:
- wedding invites (picked out, gave details but not collected)
- start on montage (not done)
- set date for food tasting (done but haven't sent the menu we chose)
- Guo da Li stuff... ( was thinking we shd buy early but do the Guo da Li later , just to avoid scurrying after 7th month)

The problem is the 7th month, seems like for an entire month, we can't do anything for the wedding... But I think I'll get the corsages and guest book done ba...

I need advice, decided not to go geomancer for wedding date, now all the more cannot go geomancer for Guo da Li date cos worried geomancer will tell me my wedding date is bad. Difficult to change now. Anyone knows generic auspicious dates these couple of months for Guo da Li?

I've not seen my album layout, select gowns for actual day, trial makeup... Hope I'm not too behind... Pls do sound out if I am...

Hello Simplyblack!

you are not alone! I too feel like there is still so much to do!

I'm based overseas so I'm relying alot on verbal promises of friends and family to get things done, up to now many of which have disappointed me, so I am getting really stressed out. >.<

But am trying to tell myself it isn't worth getting so worked up over (though it's hard with the $$$ spent), so I am trying to work small bits everyday now.

I think if you have chosen and confirmed most (if not all) of your vendors, then you are good. :)

HOw are the rest doing? All good?
 
Oh wow superberrylove, it must be so hard for you... It's like that, nothing like doing it yourself...

But I keep telling myself not to be too persistent on certain ideas and cut everything some slack because at the end of the day, it's your marriage that matters. To be joined in holy matrimony with the one you love. So try to take it easy, delegate according to what each and every person is good at, and only delegate to those who care enough.

All the best!
 
Hi simplyblack, when is ur AD?

8 Sept is a good day for Guo Da Li

Btw, did all of u sign up package with bridal shop?

If yes, do u wear the same wedding gown on ur pre wedding photos and on AD or u r wearing different wedding gown on AD?? :) :)

My AD on 27 Sep! Really?!! 8 Sep is good? I can make it! Yay... Thank you so much blissful888!

I signed up package with Di Gio... They allow me to pick different dresses for AD. And I'm going to. Though it did take me some time to pick out my photoshoot WG already, I'm not confident that I will find something better. But I think the key is the gowns will get worn (mine's off the rack, not MTM), so I think I should pick from their new collection. They have new collection every quarter.

My friends did recommend that I take back the same gown cause the photoshoot captures the gown and thus you have memory of what you wore on your wedding day. But to me, I feel that both are valuable experiences, PS and AD, so I'm ok with having different gowns and have my AD PG help me capture my AD gown.

Up to individual really... :)

HEy Sensen83,

Me too, I have yet to do my photo montage as well! I am trying to find a song for it, and to also locate all the photos as well. I really want to get it done ASAP! What program are you thinking of using?

Outstanding things left on my to do list (that I can think of for now):
- guo da li items and dates
- seating arrangement
- time line for the day
- buying all bridal accessories
- music selection (march in, ambience music)
- photo montage
- speeches (bride and groom, emcees)
- candy bar
- guest book or thumbprint poster
- gate crashing games

so much to do so little time :confused:
