they have roses, orchid and gebara (i dun noe if spelling is correct? it looks like daisy flower to me..not bad!)
We are all counting down for you..must be excited ya...so i assume all the transport details are well taken care off right? just relax and oh have u gone for your facial? if not better do so 2 weeks before to avoid having those "squeeze-out" scars.
abt red wine, i didnt purchase any as my beer was free flow. so i save on that..hehe...
hey hey...18 more days to your BIG DAY liao.....u muz be looking forward to it rt??
Agree wif Fang....muz relax , relax n relax so dat u will be mei mei (pretty) dat nite....Reckon most of yr guests would have RSVP you by now?
Yr beer not on free flow too?? how much complimentary beer u r given?? i only have 20 litres of complimentary beer....so i oredi set aside $800 - $1000 (min) for my extra barrels of beers.....i tink my colleagues gona booze thru'out the nite....given the situation...i decided to gif red wine a miss coz it's gona be costly...
not so sure, look for my coordiator Elanine ..)
ya .i am very concerned abt the wine cos we only have 50 litres and we were worried not enough..
and the red wine cost $24++++ sigh..so expensive and i think we are not allowed to bring in wine?????cos more exp due to corkage charge or sthg..
u know, i have yet to go see the set up and also foos tasting..SIGH..really busy recently...
fang, my solemnisation and my cocktail will be at white fence and dinner at pavilion ..u think its a far walk huh???not inviting all for my solemnisation.
help your help. my hubby will be going overseas and i amd left to take care of the wedding. he will only be back 10 days before the wedding. Just want to check with you all what are the item that i need to take care besides the following :
(1)printing of invitation card
(3)Si Dian Jing
1) who to be your helpers, bestman
2) their roles and responsilities
3) your beverage co-ordinator
4) the reception ladies
5) photograph takign co-ordinator
6) the agenda for the day of wedding
7) your actual day wedding co-ordinator who will take care of your purse, wallet, money etc etc
i know rasa provides coaches to pick up my guests....but do they do drop off as well? I do not want my guests to be stranded at sentosa after my dinner....heehee
Congrats! I feel that if you do not have solemnization, so point to make your guests walk so far for the cocktail reception. Although its nice but you must consider the distance, esp if you got some38 relatives who like to complain abt everything.....
This query also crossed my mind a couple of days back and I checked and clarified with Rasa. So should be accurate...just to be very sure though, you might wanna check with your co-ordinator to get their confirmation as well... Dun worry about this and enjoy all the planning ahead!
Hi all, the coaches can send people back to the few designated places.
Totoro and Amerline, usually the aunties and uncles do not come very early, so the young ones are the ones enjoying the sunset. Friends took pictures like xiao! at my friend's wedding reception cos the dusk was beautiful. When they moved in, the aunties and uncles came. (Chinese style lah, come late). If I were u, I d choose the white fence. It's very romantic.
My two cents' worth, Totoro, u decide what's best and what style u wish... =) Finally, no matter how you prepare things may still go wrong, don't panic, just enjoy the moments and smile!
I am having my solemnization at the white fence. now praying for good weather on that day. I am inviting all my guest for the solemnization and dinner, so hopefully they will come early. anyway i have decided that once the time is up, i will go ahead with the dinner.
i really hate waiting for dinners to start as a guest. its time someone taught Singaporeans to be punctual for dinners! we spoil them too much already. i always arrive early at the stated time. it shows respect for the couple also that i make a point to come at the correct time.
Was just wondering.. if it is necessary to give red packets to the jie mei.. pls give me your personal 2 cents worth comments!!
I was helping out at my friend's wedding day last Sat as one of her Jie Mei.. and got juz merely S$4 from her mum in-law after all the time spent for the day... all ang baos are distributed to all helpers (from her mum & his hubby) but stopped when it reaches us. SO UNFAIR AND BIAS.
We have to wait almost 4 hours at the groom's house for the grand arrival of all the elderly.. dunno wht kindof wedding style the groom's family adapted.
Not tht we are money face.. but this is a common practice that most follows.. and moreover, it is a gesture of appreciation on wht we have contributed to the couple's wedding!!
Wht makes us upset is the kindof unfair and bias treatment from the family..
I do agree that such unethical moves made by that couple is utterly disappointed. It is not the angbao that counts, but it is the thought that the couple should consider when your brothers / jie mei are not obliged to wake up early in the morning, polish cars, purposely buy a dress for your dinner, taking leaves, going to great ends to ensure that your wedding turns out well
Any ang bao of reasonable amount is a kind gesture of thanking your friends for the great help that they have put in making your event a successful one. Furthermore, a red packet is a must (auspicious purposes)
Well, your friend must have tasked someone on that fateful night in ensuring that all ang baos collected for the night are being named so that they would know how much to expect from their guests, so..., the same goes for your own brudders and jie meis. This is something that you should not save
I, for one, do not advocate the naming of the ang baos. We wanted to share our joyous occassion with our best friends and relatives and want them to witness and gave us blessings in united as one. A dinner is to complement their kind presence and blessings. If they were to be generous to hand us a red packet for good luck, we should accept it with grace and not harping on if we do make a loss or profit or breakeven. I'm sure most of us shares the same concept
Hi elis, hahaha, think so....cos there is only 1 wedding that day and its ours!!! heehee
Amerline Lee (amerlinelee),
I having 21 table.Menu A. Actually i had the same intention to have both solemnizationa nd cocktail at whitefemce , but not all will attned the solemnization and i think the walk towards the Pavilion is actually quite far..so in the end decided to have the solemnization at white fence and cocktail outside pavilion.
Kawayibabe (kawayibabe) ,
hmmm for me , i am not os lucky lor. I used my anniversary stay to exchange for another night stay!! P my hubby and i no good in bargaining..hmm..so sad!
oic, all my guests invited to solemnization and dinner, so i think i got lesser hassle than you. just pray that the weather holds up well on that day. btw you got a pastor or JP to do it? wat is the theme huh? you still at work or on leave to prepare already?
i actually like Fang's theme of blue and cream. something different from the normal champagne and red concepts.
i will be going for spa during my honeymoon, so i shall skip that in SG, but its a great idea. i am sure the bones will be aching standing in killer heels the whole day!!
hi long mao
i agree with ur concept of ang pow. its the thot and blessings that counts. BUT i cannot take it when pple come in family of 6 and give 20 bucks and tell u in the face, "i come give you face already ah and you serve me this type of food?" (implying low quality)
i think i would send the person out thru the door and give him/her 30 bucks to take a cab home.
was intending to hold my wedding dinner come next year in rasa .. can you gals offer any advice on the rates that the hotel is charging and what are the perks that we can bargained for? e.g. free flow of beer, two nights stay at the bridal suite, dining vouchers? etc ...
btw, rasa is a bit out of the way, how do you gals solve the problem? chatering buses?
ya i do agree that rasa is quite out of the way, but it does offers some uniquness to certain couples
btw, the standard ang pao nowadays is $80/-, after deducting the cab fare to and fro which works out to be roughly $30/-, your guests may only give you max about $60, so I guess better give rasa a miss unless u strongly prefer to have your soleminsation by the crooked fence and have your dinner behind two big pillars
