My wedding date is initially on 18 June 05, but my MIL wanted to push early.. so i've change d date last minute to 1st Jan 05, its not a date dat me n my FH wanted but, after browsing thru, its d best date for an early wedding.. heehee. datz y..
Oh! So now u r in US, den hw do u go about trying on ur gowns? When will u b coming to singapore for ur preparations den? Its best to come 3 months b4 ur wedding date, as u can still do some last minute preps juz in case... In singapore, most ppl plan their weddings a yr to half a yr in advance, as most gd hotels/restaurants r being booked way in advance...
So watz d reaction of ur fiance when u showed him my note? heehee..
yup, sunday has a more auspicious date. we wld have preferred sat, but no choice. i'm ok with sunday i guess.
it's the next best alternative!
hey! you're a BV bride too!
how are u gg to manage ur fittings if u only come bk closer to the wedding? hehe, yes, tell ur fiance 6 mths to the wedding is just about the time when preps start getting more intense! am sure it's the same over in the US. plus u are planning an overseas wedding, that's even more details to note! so do start early!
Yup yup. You guys are making good points. I will try to communicate with my fiance again and see if he can get some motivation and share my stress. Otherwise, he always says.... you are not Singaporean and you don't know the Singaporean way. sigh...as long as he is happy and his families are happy, I should be satisfied. That's the whole purpose of having this wedding in Singapore.
Oraia, how is your experience with Bridal Veil so far? I booked them solely based on recommandation. I have not visited the shop yet. Luckyly, a couple of brides from the forum share their photos with me. I think the design is very elegant with clean cut and that's the style that I like.
oic.. auspicious date is also quite impt right.. though we r catholics.. heehee
it seems like u r not really please dat u r not involve in d whole preparation process.. Cheer up!
Mayb u should let ur fiance noes dat u r part of this wedding too n let him noe ur stand n how u feel.. the whole preparation process should incld mainly u n him, but of coz both of ur families can b part of it too.. heehee
hmmm.. i tot of my new place too.. n haf told my bridal coordinator abt it. she mentioned dat unless there r special features we would like to take n d lightings r strong den its ok.. so in d end we drop off d idea of having our PS in our new home...
the usual churc budget? depends on wat ur church secretary include in d rental charges lor.. for mine coz d flower deco is areadi included so i only place any 200 to spare for any other decors dat might come along..
actually wat kind of decors u planning to haf? coz for my church right.. d only decor is the flowers lor.. dat's all... so i tink it basically boils down to wat kind of decor u looking for to fit ur budget..
little_ger, checked out the kebaya shop yet? if you're planning to get sequins stitched on the top, let them know which area. ny kebaya turned out nice but they over-did the sequins, gonna get them to remove some. call beforehand cos the lady going on a short holiday. (mrs cheng 63445077)
Hv not pop by for a long time. Hope everyone's prep is going on fine
I hv checked with my parish priest & scy wrt the church charges. Think i only need to pay abt $200 or less for the church, since I won't need the hall. If I don't intend to add/request particular type of flowers, no extra charges too
I'll be inviting our priests to lunch aft the mass. Will give main celebrant an angbao.
Hi shern & celtricia,
I was ard the Civilization Museum last nite, it's open and there was some coy function gg on in there. Find it a rather nice spot for PS.
Any of your FH tailor made their suits? My FH is rather small size and cldn't find a fitting one at our BS and yet not very keen to spend $600 on a suit to be worn only 2x at most. Any suggestion??
You can try making your FH suits at Far East Plaza, there are many shops there that tailor made suits, quite reasonable also. Last time my hubby made a white shirt there, cost $45 only, somemore got pleats infront kind.
Seems like there's lots for me to catch up on.. hehe..
U doing kebaya ah.. hw much does d lady charge u ah? I also tinking of doing it leh.. Juz for ur info, philip lye plays d organ.. he's a excellent organist i mus say.. i've areadi booked him for my AD liao.. heh...
agreed wif oraia, ur church really bery cheap leh... cheaper den mine by almost six times leh.. kekeke
little_ger, dun have, forgot to bring camera, my MIL went malacca, said pricing jus slightly cheaper and so so designs only, not worth the journey up and down. checked out amor meus yet? i did but silly me forgot to ask for more pricing cos the one he quoted me is for elaborate kind. my tailor quite good lah, jus like i mentioned lor, over-did the sequins.
bin, thanks for infor, now can consider that place, will go check it out this weekend. can try this shop at far east shopping centre #03-21 (i thinl) will check it out for you again. or peninsula there's a few shops that ties up with BS for MTM suit.
celtricia, thanks, hb kept asking me if he plays instruments, finally can tell him. will you be giving him an extra ang pow? kebay 550 excluding sequins
i heard can give 100 or more if you can afford if there's no church rental.
when is your AD, i forgot. have you booked the date yet, which fr? anyway, i've checked. bsc only allows 8 pews (per side)to be decorated, you need the church's contact for florist (i have the no.)? planning for reception?
my AD is gonna be 23 may. i haven't booked the church or priest yet cos i was away on a work trip, and we had just made up our mind abt the church b4 i left. will most prob ask for father anthony, but heard he's away or smth.
i haven't thot abt many other things yet, have just been shopping for bridal boutique and photog the last 1 1/2 mths. but still haven't booked. shld be booking by end july. thankfully, our wedding is just gonna be a simple one, so once the church, BS and photog is settled, shld be lesser stuff to do.
ic.. ur hb anxious abt it ah.. hehe.. anyway, thanks for ur info on d kebaya, coz my aunts r all wearing kebaya, was wondering whether to make one for myself, but so ex leh.. heheh..
i tink 400 for decor of church is consider reasonable lah..
i also went for d EE only, no time to go for MPC.. stretching for 6 weekends is quite a chore.. haiz..
