Hi Bella,Hi all. Im quite new here, pls guide me along wonderful ladies. My traditional wedding is on 4 June this year and everything is happening so fast! Anybody else getting married the same day?
My traditional wedding is on 11 June this year and we have settled most of the big stuff. Does anyone have recommendations for Emcee, Henna Artist and Photography? We have engaged OUI for our traditional but we haven't found one for our reception.
Looking forward to your recommendations
I just got over my ROM and planning up for the traditional wedding.
We had a Nautical / Thailand Solemnization theme...here are some details that i can share:
Venue: Hort Park MPH
A simple hall where 200 chairs are provided along with the hall, stage and basic sound system. They allow external caterer.
It was easy to liaise with them and pre set up testings
Catering: Orchid Thai Catering (www.orchidthai.com.sg)
Should you be interested in having authentic thai food for your event, you can engage them. The Chef is from Thailand thus the food is really tasty and brings the thai taste to your event
Tables: Shikaa Chairs Tables Rental & Services (https://www.facebook.com/shikaaservices/?fref=ts)
Ordered the tables with covers with them and it was a well coordinated team
Balloons: Balloon Blasters (https://www.facebook.com/BalloonBlasters/?fref=ts)
We ordered helium balloons, alphabet balloons and balloon arch from them
Hope the above details can help BTB ;-)
Thought I should share my encounters/experiences for my ROM and Wedding so the BTBs can have a better idea.
My ROM was at Hotel Fort Canning last May. My husband and I chose the hotel cause we found it unique and we like the concept of the hotel. Many complimented that the food was really good.

Harjit is a very committed photographer. Pictures turned out better than expected. He captures emotions well too, something that I like. By the way, he is from Seremban. Was a little apprehensive initially, but he made us comfortable and we share a close knit relationship now.
Makeup: Looks Bridal Studio
Bubbly is one helluva talented MUA. I love her for she was so committed and she did an excellent job.
I left it to her entirely to do my looks. Went along with her suggestions. I did not go for a trial and I definitely do not regret engaging her.
She even taught me how to walk in my gown, for she saw me tripping. An amazing soul she is.
Emcee: Saravanan Ayavoo
Pricey but he entertained the audience and engaged them very well. Versatile in his own way, many who came mentioned that they enjoyed the moments.
Traditional Wedding was at PGP, by luck I managed to get the date 8 months prior to wedding. Pure luck, but BTBs do not take the risk.
Please book earlier.
Food: Mayura Catering
Variety of food stations, everyone complimented that the food was delicious. Set up was unique.
Deco: Pandora Tomorrow
Vanan was accomodating and we just had to tell him the colours we wanted. Deco was very unique and elegant. Something different I would say.
Photography and Videography: Ji Photography
I wanted something simple yet elegant. Again, I did not go for trial and left it to her entirely to do it. She was the only one who came along with me to the temple. Within a span of ten minutes, she changed me accessories and wedding saree and I was out. Everyone was messing up on the entrance and we wasted a good ten minutes. Ananthy held my hand and said let's walk and she brought me to the entrance. I was not feeling nervous, but she kept talking to me and made me feel very comfortable. She helped me along the way, such a humble soul she is.
I hope my experiences would help some of you a way or another. Please feel free to msg me if anything!
Here's wishing all the BTBs best of luck! Stay calm and enjoy the moment. Lotsa love <3
Just a thought on those of you who had engaged Mahes as your makeup artist.. Did you guys contact her via phone, email or through her website??
I am trying to get in touch with her, but I believe she hasn't seen my email in the past days and was wondering if I should whatsapp her? Call her? Or give it a few more days? Any suggestions?
Hi girls, I am helping my son and his fiancee look into wedding arrangements, as they away for a work a fair bit. They want to have a hindu ceremony (with priest, fire etc), and looking for a suitable venue. Wedding in Feb 2018. Not keen on hotels as might be expensive. We have 1 quotation for Raffles Town Club, but hope to get more ideas. Anyone had a traditional ceremony at any club or outdoor space? Would love to hear your views on your experience (cost, ambience, any issues etc). Thank you so much
Would like to clarify that i did not comment my feedback on MUA sharmila as i did not engage her for any of my events.Hi all!
I agree completely with shasikala on booking sharmila as a MUA
Disadvantages: 1. lack of interpersonal skills regarding makeup choices (I suspect that she likes her clients to tell her that they leave the choice of makeup to her).
2.very difficult to get her to confirm anything at all. She is highly unresponsive. Sharmila states it is because she is very busy. BUT in my opinion, when you have made
a commitment you have to be responsive to a reasonable extent to the bride's queries, at the very least.
3. did not glue my eyelashes on properly and half of it was flapping about ( my guests noted this to my undying shame )
4. She caked on foundation and thickened my eyebrows so I looked like a wayang opera performer ( She is better with the fairer of skin: I noted this with reference to
her having done bridal makeup for myself, 2 of my tanned skinned family members and 1 of my darker skinned acquaintances).
Advantage: 1. She was punctual. ( At least, for my function ).
2. Matter of fact ( She was completely engrossed in doing my face: not distracted by anything at all ).
3. Makeup products are of superior quality; I did not break out Much after the function as I normally would have.
Go for her trial if you can afford it. I learnt this the really hard way. I did not and regret this so much. Her trial is nearly as ex as her actual day booking though!
I am looking to book everything from scratch for my temple wedding. Does anyone know of any good astrologer pls? May I also have the spreadsheet pls? please send to [email protected]. Thank you
