Gown Fitting

alrighty, here's our first Gown Fitting Photos. Initially was still unsure if we'd made a right choice choosing Sattine Bridal as our bridal studio. But after the gown fitting and that we've to re-arrange our photoshoot day due to my last minute business trip. We're pretty contented with their service by far...
Our co-ordinator is a nice lady who's pretty friendly I supposed. Haha and she actually allow us to take photo! That's quite surprising as some of the reviews I've read about from other brides say that most bridal studio do not allow them to take photo at all, so alot of time they have to take photo secretly.

I didn't keep track of the no. of gowns I've tried but the session took about 3 hours plus and gosh am i kind of tired and lazy after a few tries and we're like ok la..this one not bad, that one also not bad..

End up we just 'chin-chai" chose what we thought was the best that suits my body shape or flatter my body shape ra…

Bridal Heels Bought!

One of the most difficult items for me...HEELS!!
Gosh cos I've got a small but FAT feet..just like me, short and fat..so to find a pair of open-toe heels that will fit and compliment my fat feet ish like trying to look for a needle in a haystack.

And then I've got to know from Facebook that TANGS Studio having sale! So we hoped over to Vivocity last sunday to take a look since the discount is as much as 70%!!

and guess what?


I've found my perfect pair of heels!
Woohoo!! no doubt it looks kinda plain for a bridal heels but eh, actually my gown are all pretty long with trains so my feet can hardly be seen at all, moreover i chose this ivory colour so that it goes well with the day wedding gown and night ball gown too!

Not only that, cos it's not that bling or drama-mama, i can wear it on other normal occasions after the wedding too!

It's better than investing in a pair of bling heels just for bridal use and to chuck it at one corner after that.
Yes you might be able …

Where to buy Movie Clapper Board in Singapore?

Finally!! After tons of research online and scouting around, comparing prices in ebay, I've found the Movie Clapper Board in Singapore! Woohooo...

You know how you remember seeing things at certain shop when you do not need it and totally can't recall where you've seen the item once you need it?

Well I do know that Universal Studio does sell the Movie Clapper Board, but i think their version look like this;

Not very suitable for our cinematic night, which is more of a drama series title / movies theme. Moreover, I'm not sure of the price Universal studio is selling but it sure doesn't cheap.

Then there's our trustee e-bay selling all kinds of items. From China sellers to US sellers selling the "hollywood" version that looks like this;



Again, ours ain't the kind of Hollywood Movie Glamour Night..and we're Asian afterall! Kinda weird to pose with a Hollywood clapper with Asian faces ain't it?

The china ones are cheaper from as low as USD20 o…

Wedding Photoshoot Venues

We've pushed forward our pre-wedding photoshoot by 2 weeks due to my last minute business trip.
Thankfully our bridal studio's coordinator has been really nice and helpful in arranging another day for us despite the fact that she has to co-ordinate with so many different parties - the make up artist, photographer, availability of studio and the gowns and suits we've shortlisted...
really appreciate her help. But now everything has to be in a rush cos we're left with literally only this weekend to get what we needed for the photoshoot...
1) the most difficult to get = my bridal heels : heng this one i've managed to find the perfect pair at Vivocity last week! What's more? it's at Tangs 70% off!! woohoo i only paid like less than $30 for my bridal heels & it complements my fat feet plus is soooooo comfy la...really happy with my purchase, will post pics later.
2) Shirts for Mr. Keir - especially a tuxedo cut white shirt to go with his prince charming whit…

DIY-ing own Wedding Logo / monogram

We can easily create our very own wedding logo or monogram without any designing background nor software!

Just download some of the free fancy fonts , install it and play around with it. Experience with different font sizes and even different caps and fonts for your names.
Now I'm wondering which combination to use..if we were to use our initials it's gona be: - D & A sounds a tad weird?  - D & D (Des and Drea) - Des & Drea (sounds so much beta) - Desmond & Andrea (too long winded hor?)
Anyway I've downloaded some fonts from Dafonts there's so many fanciful fonts there that you'll definitely be spoilt for choices!
And i did a random test on Microsoft word....

The results' not bad right? I haven't even try to be fanciful yet. May wana try out on photoshop tonight to make it look more like a Logo. =)


Little Snippets to the Theme...

had a brief catch up with one of my jie-meis cum wedding coordinator cum arts director cum consultant cum ideas generator a.k.a Ella..haha..
actually she's really one of my best ex-colleagues ever and we used to do product launches and other activities and events together, though she's usually the one in charge of everything since she's doing marcoms. hehz..

That's like a perfect person to help come out with ideas and source for vendors and stuffs since it's been part of her job all these while! Looking at the successful events she's done for work, i certainly have no doubts on her ability & creativity even though it's her first time in wedding related event ahaha.

Ok back to the theme, we're still sticking to a cinematic night but i would like to clarify that cinematic may not just mean Movie, it can include tv series, dramas etc right? ahaha...

Actually i'm in a dilemma as to how much to reveal in my blog. If i were to list out each and every …
