yup, getting frens to do so is a cheaper alternative... the problem is, i dun trust my frens
FH is trying out how to extract video from DV tape, edit & then burn into CD.... took him 3 hours for a 1 hour tape
photo montage is a short 2 to 3 min video clip comprising u & FH's photos for ur guests to see lor... for my PS, Simon will come for outdoor shoot only... i asked for Cyn's permission b4 i engaged him. She said that indoor PS can't videotape due to the lighting interference lor...
correct, me mid-nov b2b
haven't lose weight yet... cos i stopped gym for 1 month liao...
i'm going for the j&c bridal show this coming sat.... really interesting to read all ur posts... seems like most of u had a gd experience....
do u mind sending me ur pix too??? i wld love to look at them...
i'm planning to get a feel of j&c during the bridal show.. oh.. actually, heard of j&c as i was asking Yi to show me her photos... me also think tt Yi had a wonderful EG.. veri sexy.. n her photo shoot at ubin turned out veri nice as wel!!
hopefully we will continue to have good experiences along the way.
If u wan to get a better feel of j&c, would recommend u to visit them personally, and see their photos, try out their gowns, talk to the staff etc. Bridal show models all have good figures, so gowns on them sure look nice one.
Still, if you haven't sign up, they are likely to have promotional packages
The guy's name is Simon Toh. HP: 90038765
But bewarned, he's a bit temperamental hor..
He just shifted his home office to Sengkang,, so i dun have his new number. I understand that he has a share in the wedding stuffs shop at Marina Sq. I saw him there one day demo-ing the video to a potential customer... But i went to his old place with a group of 8 other gals
White Link - Nice service but most gowns that I like in the photo are all taken up by other brides.
Emannel B Couture-Nice service by designer but think they do not have OTR for men.
Le Galleria Bridal Atelier-Nice service but no OTR for men and also quite pricy.
Everbliss-No gowns that I like
Milan- Quite happy so far but yet to sign up with them and J&C of course
Hence, I am now down to 2 bridal shops -Milan and J&C and hence shall now change my name from confused to undecided
Have anyone been to Milan yet? Do share with me your opinions on the two ok.
Hi Undecided: Feel tat the photography from Milan & J&C r quite competitive. When trying Milan's gown, i din feel rite & comfortable. Like somethin' missing. But not with J&C gowns. Hope u noe wat i mean. Anyway, tis is only my personal experience. Maybe its diff for u. juz go with ur heart & choose the "one" u & ur FH r most comfy with.
Thanks for your advice. Though I have yet to try Milan's gown, I too feel something is missing but I may be able to make do with the feeling if the price is right. Currently, I feel that the price for both is rather competitive except that J&C seems to be on the high side. Sigh! Guess I may leave the ultimate decision to my hubby-to-be. hehehe
i meant he will get a bit irritated if u r late or too early for appointment with him lor... that's about it. but during videotaping of PS, he'll do the work quietly as one of my kakis had experienced. she's doing her photo montage now.
he'll oso provide rental for projector if ur banquet venue doesn't. oso, we booked him exclusively for our date & my jie meis can tom-pang his car
some other video guys need u to provide a seat in the follow cars for them lor...
my purpose for the video is so that my in-laws can bring back to mauritius to show their relatives cos we won't be having a separate wedding there to save costs...
my FH & family migrated from china to mau when he was young... his mum made him go to private chinese school during weekends... but his mandarin not so good... can speak our market mandarin but can't read much chinese
wahhh..chinese tough to learn leh! esp for foreigners not in the chinese culture. Mauritius very pretty. Wenn, considering for honeymoon?
Undecided, if u have a chance, do go down Milan and try their gowns (do they allow?). Nothing beats the actual look and feel of gowns by trying personally. There's still ample time to decide but be careful, don't just decide on price factor alone. The feeling must be right.
J&C says they have new OTR WG every 3 months, but didn't say for EG. I haven't seen their full range of EG yet coz I've only taken one gown for my ROM. But I remember seeing a lot of racks with EG hidden behind their curtains. Hmm...nice or not u have to judge for urself lor...but personally i like what i see
If you r interested in signing with J&C, you can sign for new OTR first and if you really cannot find any OTR, then top up $300 for MTM. That's what i'm doing now anyway.
Milan collection is nice too. So to be fair, you got to try both to confirm your likings.
Air Mauritius & SQ have cancelled all flights from there to HK & SIN... so FIL can't booked flight to attend our ROM yet.. He'll try the agency again in mid-may. If still cancelled, he'll have to take flight to Perth & then to SIN
hope sars wun get worst.. cos some sep 03 brides are considering postponing their customary.. yours in 04 is still ok lor..
dun think J&C has much OTR EG cos Cyn did mention that EGs are easier to MTM since there are many different colours & designs. however, i managed to find a new OTR EG & converted my MTM option into more photos
so sad! SARS is really causing a lot of problems hor! My colleague was joking if SARS get any worse, maybe ROM registry will just post u the certificate, sign and mail back! Sigh...s'pore trying hard to curb SARS from spreading but even with such measures still don't help to much extent.
btw, for couples who has booked the banquet for this year already, and they r postponing due to SARS, do they need to pay anything extra? Though mine is in 04, there is still a chance the current situation could get worse, so need to know the facts to prepare.
u're so lucky to find a new OTR EG! I tot u MTM leh...
Usually people prefer to MTM EG coz WG looks more or less quite standard, but EG can have more designs and cuts. Wearing any gloves or not?
yah lor,, this is considered a natural disaster in a sense
for banquet postponement, i'm not sure leh... i think have to consult the banquet manager & try to work out something lor... the other option is to go ahead but with lesser tables in order not to lugi too much...
actually we were designing the EG.. then my sis was going thru the rack of EGs.. we saw something we all liked & decided to take that instead as i find the empire-cut gown suits me.. my mum commented that it will be more unique as compared to the bustier design i had in mind.. so in the end, we told cyn to remove the spaghetti straps & the EG will look like a bustier cum empire-cut... a bit diff to explain lah... u wait for my fitting photos hor
dun think i'll be wearing gloves cos i find leh cheh... besides, i intend to get french manicure
apple: tks for the compilation. btw, my photos were ready for selection 1 wk after the ps. but i waited 2 mths for the album to be done...
wenn: no secret to how i maintain my weight. jus make sure dun eat too much titbits/snacks...i 'naturally' lose some weight cos i fell ill for abt 2wks before my ROM and never gain back again...but i dun tink u 1 2 go thru' tat...
can relate to the excitement all of u r feeling
if u need 2 find out abt anything, let me know, i'll share wat i know
maybe can try cut ur rice portion by half for ur meals. Eat more vegetables in place and try not to have dinner at least 4 hours before sleeping. I'm guilty for snacking too, but try curbing by drinking more water lor
will take ur advise.. but will attend the show to see how their designs r like.. went to a prev bridal show, n was quite disappointed with their designs, n immed struck them off the list!!! *hee*
ok, will share the promo...
my big day is 2004.. hve not decided the date yet.. so, i'm still quite relaxed in my search for bridal, banquet etc... *hee*..
*hee* ur rom not early lah!!! mine was 9.50am!!! *hee*..
btw, when's u gals' big day????
oh sklek... u r a 2004 bride?? y dun u join the 2004 brides thread??? there's tons of b2b there, and the thread is also veri active!!!
undecided.. i paid $5 for the french manicure i had coz hv $20 viucher.
married.. forgot to tell u tat ur pics r great & u look great! Thks!
something to share with u.. actually, when i was seleting my WG & EG, cyn also showed me the exact same pcs u had. i feel tat the WG is veri sexy. low v-shaped cut in front rite. i even tried ur EG too but i'm too big for it. tummy was too obvious.
anyway, tks for ur advise! but sometimes it hard to control coz i tend to drink alot of water in the evening.
ah married.. did ur make-up artist tidy ur eyebrows?
ladies ladies.. we muz all watch our health & look best! Instead of dieting, we shld EXERCISE! So lets motivate each other!!
Yah, i agree that we shouldn't diet & not exercise. Me ah? just cutting down on the quantity of food for dinner cos my mum always cooks alot... i've cut down my rice to 1 bowl liao
So happy, managed to settle my FH's ROM shirt liao... mtm eyptian cotton at the tailors... recommended by a fren's bridal shop, amanda lee.... if u want the contact, let me know hor & I'll email u... cos i know cynthia dun provide shirts for actual day
married, u're right, drinking water before sleeping will cause eye area puffy, something like water retention.
did anyone utilise their trial make up also?
i think i share similar situation with wenn. My mum likes to cook a lot also...end up very full after dinner. I cannot diet one, always end up eating more. It's better to have a sensible diet and exercise. But i veri the lazi one...
used to go swimming alt sat, now SARS outbreak don't dare to go anymore.
apple, u're so sweet! but i don't recall doing anything to have all those nice praise from u leh?
