I'll go over to J&C during lunch time.. Hee hee. a bit ambitous. Not sure if I can complete my mission within 2 hours. The first time I went, we stayed there from 7pm to 10pm..
Wah, wenn, it's your man who raise the red flag ah? ha ha ... my man doesn't mind in fact.. He said it's a once a life time opportunity. So in other words, his message is "you can only reveal on your wedding day!!"
Apple, I bought my actual day pair from Studio Tangs. It is silver with 2 straps of crystals. Going to use it with WG & EG. The other pair will function as a spare. Heh heh, have to go for pedicure b4 wedding liao. The good thing is can still wear after wedding as silver shoes are easier to match as compared to white shoes.
Jelutong, I was there on monday. Only Cynthia & another lady was around. I assume that she is the seamstress as Cynthia got her to check on the areas to pin up b4 alterations. Cynthia was busy with phone calls. Heng heng no walk-in customers. I was there at 1.30pm & finished around 4.20pm. A gal came in with her mum and sis around 3.50pm. But they looked at the albums 1st lor.
i think those gowns u hv selected to try must be veri slim fitted! keke.. anyway, the issue may not lie with u. i noted tat some of their EG cutting r so slim & they looked so gd on the model. i felt frumpy when i tried one.
Pinc & Daisy nail cottage r located at Orchard Emerald (basement is Burger King). Level 3 i think. My GF went there for her manicure & pedicure b4 her wedding. I'm not sure abt the one-time charges. But i do now they hv packages of 6 treatments. Can check bridal mag for the add.
Hollywood Secrets is rather popular too. They hv eyebrow shaping too!
i dun think that u r frumpy... i think both of us just need to tone up abit.. Cynthia said that her size ranges from S-M & M-L.. some of her gowns are for those tall & slim gals... which i'm not
hi hi wenn.. keke.. yesterday, i hv changed my gown to a bustier one.
did a comparison. according to my FH, the former one which i hv selected is nice but made me looked rather old. while the bustier make me looked younger.. hence bingo. another common bustier gown bride keke.. most imptly, my FH approves of it.
I will only choose my EG next month, together with the first fitting. hey wenn, when is ur trial make up?
i was advised to get my shoes b4 the first fitting. *sign* gotta go & spend more munny tis wkend!!
was just reading your postings and read that cynthia has sold my EG?
personally, i love my EG alot too.
was contemplating whether to buy it or not when i return it the day after my wedding.
but decides against it as its of no use as can't really wear it to any dinners.
if i'm not wrong, the lace is french lace.
you can check with cynthia on that.
that is the design she proposed for me.
Tok about gowns to choose, Cynthia 1st brought out a bustier off-white duchess satin WG with short train for me to try. There is shiny white embroidery along the bustline & the hems of the skirt. It is really beautiful & my mum & sis liked it very much.
Cynthia was quite keen for me to try it but I kept telling her NO, cos it resembled my fren's wife's WG. (Hope that i din offend her) If my fren's wife din wore this design during their dec 02 wedding, I would have chosen this gown as it is simple & elegant. I dun want my fren to say that i'm a copycat
Then she brought the other gowns for me to try cos I told her that I wanted something different lor...
hi Wenn.. i tink my gown shld be fr the new collection. The gown is at the veri preliminary stage. It's not white. Ivory i tink. Does not hv a long train. When trying, there was minimal flower embroidery pinned alongside on the top bustline only. Tat's all. Cyn will put more flower embroidery on the bodice. Will tell u more after my first fitting.
hey jelutong.. saw that bustier full laced WG on the mannequin too. Yup! veri nice.
No wenn.. i din bump onto jelutong
dear ladies.. wat a coincidence.. my PS is on 21 May. jelutong, will the make-up artist go to ur hse to do ur trial make up or will be done at J&C? If at J&C, perhaps i'll get to meet u then!
I'm tinking of going to the show. How abt u girls?
hmm wenn.. cyn did not show me the bustier off-white duchess satin
i hv no idea wat shoes design i wan. Maybe those tat will cover the toes only (coz i hv ugly toes)
Was hoping to get one in either beige or silver. This lady at J&C said silver wld be the safest.
hi wenn.. i dun tink r ju-zha. excited wld be a better description
Tks for the tip. u hv been a great help. will peep into C&K & Studio Tangs.
My first fitting & trial makeup is not fixed yet. Maybe will be on early may. Duno y my PS so early too. Maybe its gd to a lead time of abt 3 months b4 the wedding? In case for any changes? Urs too rite? PS in july & wedding in nov.
I'll be going to J&C for the trial make up since ROM office is not far from her place. Ha ha ha, maybe we will be having the same make up artist since it's your PS day that day....
Wenn, apple and I didn't meet on Monday cos I went during lunch time. apple, you went after work right?
I bot my bridal shoes from OG. It's close toe white heels with silver embroidery. When I put it on during the fitting, I realised that my shoe is whiter than my WG... So cham.. maybe I should put the shoes under the sun to make it off-white..
yup, they are known to make wedding shoes.. in fact, BV offers a pair of custom-made shoes from them... but i dun like their designs.... I prefer riccino. some of the FBO gers custom-made theirs from riccino at orchard point. the other custom-make shoe shops are RAMS & Paradox. Heard that at Holland Village got a shop selling bridal shoes called Waverly Fin
Cynthia didn't mention anything about the shoes. She was busy fixing the WG.
I went to Riccino a couple of weeks back but couldn't find a suitable pair of shoes. Rather limited stocks. Or were they in the midst of clearing stock for the new season... not sure..
Yeah apple, I'll be getting another pair of shoes for my EG and ROM. Tinking of a silver one. Went to Lucky plaza the other day and saw quite many shops carry the evening shoes collection. Not sure about the price... If you like the high end one, Fairy's Inc carries a few selected designs of Paradox shoes.
OOpss... I can't remember my make-up appointment. THink it's around 12 noon..
Hi Carey, Cynthia has a few albums full with WG photos. You can ask to take a look and see if you like the designs. I saw one of her latest gowns, laced bustier gown, very pretty. But you need to see if the gowns/photo suit your taste .
Can someone share with me the OTR package?? What it consist of??
Does the package came with any gown for ROM?? Will be having my ROM in Jun but Customary will only be in Year 2005. Do you think J&C will let me sign the package now??
Coz visited a bridal shop at Tanjong Pagar and the lady was like not very keen... but then after some dicussion, she is willing to let me sign and provide free Gown/Makeup/Hairdo/Bouquet of flower for the ROM...
hi wenn & jelutong.. thx for the advise. popped into Leapin Lizard over the wkend. Dun find the shoes suitable for me. Saw one at Metro but no stock. Hv to wait till next month for new stock to come in.
girls.. those names u mention.. Riccino, RAMS & Paradox.. any idea wat is their price range? Izzit 150-300? If yes, then i will skip it. keke.. ThX!
hi carey.. congratulations.. Yeah, when is ur ROM & big day?
Thks wenn.. how abt the price range for off-the-shelves shoes? Any idea? Izzit ard 80-150?
I was hvg quite a tough time at Studio Tangs. There were 3 pairs i like. However, they were either not high enuff (onli 1 inch) or nice but not veri comfy.
Tough luck. Finally, at the last moment, saw the "one" at Metro. Now hv to wait for stock to come in. Its not veri high (onli 2 inch) but quite happy with the color & design. Gorna cost me $99. With so many sales ard, was hoping to get a better deal but *sign* no luck.
how high is urs, wenn? silver rite. tink u mention b4 but forgot.
Ehhh, no idea... but I did walk passed Riccino at Orchard Point.. the shoes are on 40% discount.. I think can wait around for another month or two lor,, cos SIN always got sales... Heard that there are silver shoes with crystals at OG. Cost $69 only.
dun worry about the shoes, you'll be able to find them
cynthia's 3.8k otr package includes new otr WG & MTM EG. suit is OTR. photos are 15R. i think she has her latest collection ready for her fashion show. can get ur fren to go down to take a look. it is better that she makes an appt to see cynthia directly. heard that a couple of her sales staff are quite pushy...
Yup wenn, u r rite abt the pushy parts. My friend actually went down for her first appt and met Cynthia, everything went smoothly, and she decided to sign it upon her 2nd appt. But then, cynthia was too busy wif other custs, so one of the sales ppl talked to my friend and somehow ruin the whole thing. In the end they lost one cust. So it is better to talk to Cynthia!
Most of us took Cynthia's OTR package at 3888 which includes a new OTR gown & MTM EG. Her pricing structure is slightly different from most bridal shops. It would be better if u go down & chat with Cynthia.
