1 year on + 2nd Wedding.

It’s been one since I got married and everything so far has been no less than awesome. I’m happily married to a man I respect and admire but still love and cherish with equal depth. We’re planning to get our house by the end of the year – BTO Bukit Panjang Segar Palmview.

Anyway, this isn’t a life after wedding blog so I shall get to the good news. My BFF / Maid of honour at my wedding is a newly engaged girl and I’m helping her plan the wedding! So good news, she’s allowed me to blog about it and hopefully hope you guys planning your wedding.

A little more information on the wedding:
Bride: Late 20s / Non-Catholic / Chinese
Groom: Late 20s / Catholic / Chinese
Dating for: 5 years
Wedding Date: 20 June 2015
Wedding Ceremony: Catholic Church [undecided!]
Wedding Banquet: Grand Hyatt [Booked]
Traditional/Non: Tea Ceremony

The rest is completely up in the air and undecided and unbooked. I’m helping the couple cause they are currently residing in Melbourne taking care of their yoghurt business. But she’s flying down from 2- 18 June to dedicate 1 whole week to see to wedding matters.

We’ve booked to see 7 bridal houses:
Silhoutte / Olive suite / Magaret Brides / Blessed Brides / La Marie / La Vita / Time Taken to Make a Dress

We’re planning to see 4 churches:
St. Theresa @ Bukit Purmei
Blessed Sacrament @ Commonwealth
St. Peter and Paul @ Bras Basah
Our Lady of Lourdes @ Bugis

She hasn’t decided on a photographer and videographer yet which kinda scares me. You know how the best are booked up wayyyy in advance.

Will update the progress within the week, in th meantime if you have any request of specific pictures from any of the bridal houses or venues let me know!

XOXO

Wedding Caterers

So I’m hitting the 6 month mark soon and a lot things need to fall within the 6 months marker.. one of which is deciding and contacting the caterers for the church reception.

Now I’m not too particular about food.. I know many couple who are and who have paid for an indulgent feast from places like Purple Sage, Neo’s Garden and Rasel. While I have nothing against people who love to savour the finer stuff, I prefer spending my money else where. Food isn’t too big a concern for us. I don’t need the fancy food, as long as my guests are not kept hungry after the ceremony is enough for me. M’s stand on this is exactly like mine.

I think sometimes people want to spend a lot because of pressure from parents and friends weddings, to give their guests a really good time. It’s easy to spend too much so I believe that while his or my parents may want a really big spread, I’m opting for simpler food. -In other words,  ITS OK TO GO CHEAP!

So I headed to foodline.sg (love this place because they offer CASHBACK omg!) and just went for the most simplest / cheapest / fuss free set I could find. Here’s a narrowed down list, some have minimum number of people but since mine is 200 for church, I definitely surpassed it:

 

I’m gonna ask M what he think and start looking into reviews for these few places before making my choice.

Any of you tried these places before? Any recommendations?

Church Pictures

I was lucky enough to go to church the night before an actual wedding for some event. I got to see the set-up and the flowers and the ribbons. The bouquet theme is actually something I was picturing already, mostly white, a little pink and green. Just overall very pretty, very romantic.

Should I go with this theme? I was done by our church florist, The Olive3.
