agree wif yukie that with your budget, u have quite a wide choice of BS, including the designer ones =) happy shopping ard. i enjoy the process of trying out the gowns at those BS that i shortlisted. And yes, my albums are also in one corner of my wardrobe... in fact, the soft copies are much easier to view since i saved them in the pc, and best thing is i din ve to top up to get all my soft copies back!
When's your PS & AD? usually it takes abt 2 mths plus for MTM 2 gowns. And if u already have in mind the design, go to someone who can deliver it best. talk to the designer and look at their styles. wat other BS u ve in mind?
saw your mei mei photos, u look very sweet, think the photos are quite well-taken. which gowns have u decided on for AD? Counting down!
when ur ps and ad?
i m d slowest here and still can managed to get my gown mtm..
i like YC gowns..i was undecisive even til the last minute which gown to pick..to hv a grand look or princess look..hehe wat type of gowns u like
yup...YC has their in house PG...
tink basic pkg starts at $2988
one mtm wg & otr eg (topup 300 if both mtm)
2 Suits for groom
1 mtm pants for groom
fotos (depends how on ur bargining power)
table top portrait and one big portrait
4R loose pix
1 mini album
Car Deco & entourage car deco ribbons
usually PS 2-3 mths before AD, so ard Sep to Oct will be just nice, but depends on whether u pantang to take photos during the lunar 7th mth, not forgetting this yr there are 2 mths of 7th mth in Aug & Sep.
Most PG will be busy in Oct (8th mth) if they do AD as well. I know Kelvin does AD too. So u better start planning, coz if the PG cannot fit the schedule in Oct, & u pantang, may mean ur PS in Jul or Nov. if mtm, U ve to give the BS at least 2 mths.
Sthg to think abt to avoid any rush later on... TWP is a good choice, just ask yukie... =) Speak to the BS, usually they will help u to plan out the time schedule. Btw, what's SPOSA? is it a new BS?
My AD is 13 March. And yup, I got my wines on consignment from St*r Cellars... You can look for Alan - nice guy who can dish out good advice on suitable wines.
odiey & milo,
Thanks for the compliments! I just chose my gowns last week and will not be taking any of those in my album... wahahahahhaa. My BS is supposed to alter my chosen gowns for me to go for 1st fitting next Friday... Having my trial makeup session then also... Will take pictures and let you gals see...
Tat means its abt 2wks fr now...
Do U think I shld jux buy a cheap wine costing abt $13/bottle
or a slightly better wine costing $15/bottle?
I had tasted $13/bottle...Quite awful.
$15 is the shiraz or carbernet..(forgotten)...taste slightly better.
i will be getting wine from my friend's dad... CornerStone is the name of the wine at $13per bottle.. my FH and i tried tried the wine and liked the taste of it lor.. smooth and comfortable to drink...
Yeah, now busy with preps. How are your preps going? Your AD in April right?? About the wine, think at the very least you should get something that you can tahan la... imagine if the wine is so awful that no one drinks it, then you are left with 30 over bottles of horrible wine that even you yourself cannot drink... heeheehee... And also what if your friends make you drink it as a sabo act? Heheheheheheh Is your $13 wine from Bottles & Bottles? My friend tried that and thought it was really undrinkable.. heheh...
Yeah lor yeah lor! Luckily we already booked last year... now their wedding package is so different from ours and more expensive... Kio tio! Hahahahhahahahha

is the food over there good? have not heard anything abt the food quality. any feedback so far??
yup that place can be use for Solemnisation but can't remember if need to pay anot...the reception aft the solemnisation will be at cafe brios tog wif the rest of the guests coz they won't set a separate buffet line...
Yeah, that's the second part of my HM... the first part is in Hua Hin... hahahaha... I insist that I want to go somewhere more private and relaxing first before going back to hectic city life... hhahahahhahahha
Why don't you take a look at the wedding show's webpage? There's a link at the top of the forum page... Think they are having some extra perks for UOB cardholders... can take a look to find out.
