Hi JY =) thanks, i'm happy to have you gals making this thread lively.
I also agree tat it's real fun to have like-minded pple.. cos we know how much problems we can face cos we are constantly overseas. Now, whenever I have off days, it would be spent on my house renovation or wedding preparation.
Luckily you have more time to prepare for your house cos it's still not ready. I think 30 tables is a comfortable number, my hotel requires me to have minimum 40 tables, the mere thought of coordinating the guest list is givin me a huge headache.
With regards to your photo question, i think it all depends on your bridal studio, my wedding is in june next year and my photo shoot is scheduled in feb, approximately 4 months before the wedding. So i guess you should have more than enough time =)
I'm goin AKL tom, my 4th AKL this year.. very sian but at least it's a station where u wont spend much.. talk to you gals when im back!!
