Dinner.
I also dislike cos it's so late. but is so called "auspicious time"
What should I do?
Mine also following auspicious time between 7am and 9am so I have a lot of time since we stay very near each other. If it's the auspicious time I think just have to follow unless you and your hubby not pantang

My hb can only step out of house after 9am. zzzz
the timing for us was like 5-7am? hubby has to unveil me by latest 7am. means i have to start makeup at like 4-5am?? too early! in the end we told the parents that the date /day itself is already an auspicious day, dont need to be too hung up on even the hour lol. so we got to plan all the timings ourselves.. :)

You can try taobao. But not sure of the quality though.
 
My mua said I should start my make up at 4. Isit Too early? I'm planning to have htb enter my place latest 745am.
Hi,I am thinking of asking MUA to come 4.30am and all ready by 6am. But I was afraid it would be too early for MUA. Haha
I am planning for HTB to enter 7am and leave my house 745 cos we stay very far.

Oh by the way, we're in abit of a sensitive situation. My htb's parents are divorced.
So I'm kinda stuck in what to write on the card.
Like Mr & Mrs so and so invites you..
So in this case can't write Mr & Mrs.

Babe,
Does your package inclu makeup artist for AD?
I think usually comes with trial..
Or some places prolly offer lower cost simple no frills package, maybe no makeup.
Gotta check with them

Hi babe,

Yup, my actual day package include make up artist. They do not include trial make up. Instead a top up of $$ is required :(

Look on the bright side.. You save on the early charges for before 7am.. You can sleep in also. :)
That's the only good thing about it lor :(

Haha that's true.. Nonetheless, don't let this affect your whole wedding/preparation. Just enjoy it!
Thanks dear for the positive comment. haha!!

Yours too early, mine too late :(
But actually you got a point leh! Already count auspicious day why still need to count auspicious hour?

I'm getting mine from the bmd shop, convertible dresses. 1 of my bridesmaid want sleeves, so no choice, convertible is the easiest option.

I rather you do the trial than to get shocked on AD if you don't like the style. Need to top up money de?

Actually it all depends on what your shifu says.. I realised that there are so many discrepancies between different shifus no wonder they say once you see 1.. Just stick to 1..

My FTB time is 0700-0859 and the shifu said that I need to serve tea to my htb parents before 0859.. And htb enter my house from 0700..

Some people say count already don't follow then what's the purpose of counting. So complicated... :S

haha cos that hour will be SUPER auspicious - like "double confirm guarantee chop" mah :p
his parents doesn't know about this auspicious hour thingy apparently.. *phew* or maybe they forgot to ask/assume we will follow.

it really depends what one believes in.. we have seen couples who followed all the auspicious traditions but still end up in a divorce, so.... we just follow as much as we could to enjoy the chinese traditions hee, yet not so much as to inconvenience ourselves.

I plan to do tea ceremony for my side at hotel so as to save a bit of time.
Do you need to go back to ur place after groom's place?
