Hello! I'm gonna be a 2013 bride! Most likely the month of May although the month and date is not totally confirmed since it's still so long ago...
Kit, the number of gowns actually depends on what your schedule will be like, do u have the door bashing and tea ceremony? Is your wedding along with ROM or is it a church wedding, and where the lunch reception is being held...
Joanne, it's good to keep a look out, and ESP since a lot of bookings are made in advance (a year or more) so better see what is being offered already
Hi Celine, most hotels don't allow outside carefree to come in as they have their internal f&b protocols. Perhaps u want to look at a non-hotel venue and get the outdoor caterer that u prefer? What research topics are u looking at?
Yeah. i know. Cos i really like Pin Si Kitchen's food. So far all restaurant and hotel's foods are disappointment. So i thought i could really find a place that allow outside caterer. Preferably hotels, otherwise clubs would be fine too.
I won a wedding contest recently, and there will be a free BS! so would be taking my BS on april, hopefully it turns out great! So i could save the hassle for researching on that. haha!
Kinda lost now, as dunno when is the right time to calculate the date for the AD, if calculating now, would it be too early?
Hi Miss, wow, lucky u! Free BS means u save on the gowns right? So good!
We initially settled for May 2013, but are looking at a couple of dates now. Thank God we don't have superstitious dates to follow, so pretty much any of the dates will work for us.. now is just tying down the date and hopefully find one that is not the auspicious kinda date that has an influx of brides...
Kit, if you are doing a garden solemnization, u gotta consider if u will be walking on the grass, coz if u are, u might not want to wear a long gown as it will dirty it easily... Qi pao sounds great for a 2nd March In!
I'm actually thinking of not changing but just straightaway enter the dinner in evening gown. Wanna ensure that i enjoy my evening as much as i can... So prob will wear the white gown for church, then evening gown only for dinner...
I've not heard of Gustos before... What's your budget for the western food catering? I used to work with Purple Sage and Lavish, not too bad!
Theyangs, I thought of that too but HTB like the feel of long gown during solemnization. So I am trying to convince him that we get a smaller 'tail'.
Thanks for your recommendation. I will take a look. I found Gustos in bows Oct 2011, their presentation looks good and all western food.
My budget is around $1200 for 30~35 pax Another $800 for chairs, ROM table, small standing around tables & flower arc. Not sure if the budget was enough.
Raindeer, not all bride prepare so early.
I know of a few friends just start to their wedding preparation for 2012 right now.
However they are quite intensive, within 2wks they book their BS, banquet and ROM location.
Miss, what I understand from free PS is you still need pay fee for certain thing, some will need to charge for gown or MUA during shoots. Do check with them what is not included for shoot.
Yang, thanks for your advise, I think I will start ordering my gown in Apr. Should go and do extreme exercise now. Haha.
Anyone got their wedding bands yet?
I think we can start to look around for a band that suit both which is very hard. Since the wedding band is something that will last for life with you, I think both party must like the design.
agree totally with kit... to me i think wedding bands are for life, i'm not those couple that keep changing wedding bands de...
for me... i've been postponing my date since early 2011 as both parties' timing can't accomadate to each other... i really hope that by 2013 i can really settle down.
So far i am still sourcing for hotel for lunch banquet.. seems like of some hotels i tried calling some already taken or on waiting list. But there are still hotels available for booking. hmmm, if you all hv a date perhaps can start sourcing for the banquet, the rest still can slowly source..
apparently my free PS seems to be a scam. HHaha. they say they only provide me 15 photos in softcopy and the next photo is chargeable at $120 each! oh noo.. They will only be providing MUA and some tea dresses for the conceptual theme.
I can bring my own dress and costume though, but that's mean i have to buy my photo at the end of the day!
Don't feel like taking the PS olready! *sigh~
Well.. I haven't really got the time and energy to do research now, just briefly know that i'll be 2013 BTB! Will need to calculate the auspicious date for my AD first before the actual plannings start! ^^
Miss, if you are continue the free PS, you might want to talk to the PS, if you take full package like 30-35 photos kind, will they include these free 15 & more change in for you.
Reason being an album need around 50 photos, the top up you are going to pay is $120*30=$3600 or $120*35=$4200, with this amount the BS can provide you full 30 photos PS(w WG & EG) with AD needs.
That will be win-win for you and the BS.
However it is still down to you if you like that BS anot. If not no point.
Yeah.. i guess i wouldn't go into too much for the PS, even though it's by Chris Ling. Cos they only providing studio shoot for conceptualize theme. No point to pay for the photos if it's just like an engagement shoot.
Well, 2013 is got a long way to go! Dunno if it's too early to plan for the wedding! haha..
im gonna be a 2013 BTB but....v difficult to plan!!
i wanted my wedding to be 27 Jan, Sun(coz its our birthday, and our anniversary date) but my mother say she gotta work the next day zzz den she ask me to hold my wedding during the sch holiday so she doesnt have to rush frm work zzz (they r working for the schools)
i went to source for the venue and is pretty satisfied with the package from Holiday Inn Atrium (the fri banquet is considered wkday price!!) so im thinking of having it on Jan 25th coz 27th is not a v auspicious date for us, but my mother say she cant take leave!!!
perhaps u can go dbl chk wif master tong (in sgbrides thread) if its an auspicious date for both of u.. or chk on e bazhi in details.. if reli suitable u can hold a lunch banquet at least it will end early & ur mother will still have sufficient time to rest...
This weekend there is 2 events, 1 is a fair in Suntec City by Wedding-travel.
Another 1 is by The New Paper wedding planner 2012. http://www.cats.com.sg/weddingplanner/index.html
This event look quite big with many hotels over there. You all might want to visit the event to check out the price for 2013 banquet for those who haven't do so.
However, i need to have a recommendation on MTM gowns. Whether seamstress/bridal shop as I will only be looking at having one white gown for the entire day (Lunch wedding banquet). Going to save on tea dress or "evening" dress. Therefore, the one white gown has to be done nicely! My HTB would most probably be just renting a one suit too. Any ideas? Got a picture of how i would want the dress to be attached.
I think it's just the best design for a morning to lunch wear... with tea ceremony/solemnization/dinner all in one. Saves me alot of headache on changing in and out for such a short time. Let me know what you think!
