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
B

My Florist: 86 Creation

The last 3 days have been an absolute whirlwind. BFF finally flew down, M went for his fitting, I went for mine, we went to get our florist settled and went to 2 site viewings, church and RSYC for BFF to get a rough idea. Will slowly blog about everything.. but for today, some information on 86 Creation.

Our appointment was at 1pm at the florist located at Depot Heights Shopping Centre. For those who have no clue as to where that is, it’s near bukit merah/henderson. Wasn’t very difficult finding the shop since it’s located on the first floor and the sign is pretty huge.

The shop doesn’t look fantastic I’ll be honest, but I believe its the quality of the flowers that matter!  We spoke with Jennifer whom I made the appointment with, she invited me and BFF to sit down and then proceeded to speak to us about the choices we had. I brought along the iPad to show her my pinterest bouquet page, making it easier for her to get my idea of what I wanted. According to the Silhouette, our flower package was $150 for:

1. Simple Bridal Bouquet
2. 2x Corsages for Groom (but I decided to give one to the Bestman)
3. 4x corsages for parents
4. Bridal Car decor.

The options given for the bridal bouquet with that budget was honestly really ugly. Lots of leaves and flowers I didn’t really like – lillies, small roses. So I opted out of the bridal car decor and used that to upgrade my bouquet. The bridal car decor I could very well do my own or have none at all. Wasn’t very important to me.. What was important was that I had my exact flowers that I wanted.

I finally settled with this photo as my inspiration!

I told her I wanted:
* as little leaves as possible as I wanted my bouquet to be all blush/ivory and lush.
* stems to show a little at the bottom instead of completely covering it up with ribbon
(Although she tells me that if I don’t ensure the stems are dry, water may drip onto my dress!!!)
* use 3 of my favourite flowers: Peonies, Roses and Eustomas (which is what is in the above picture)
* a round bouquet instead of a flat top.

Peonies were an additional top up of $30 though. They will give 6 blooms plus 1 for my hair. I didn’t mind, I really wanted peonies. 🙂

As for corsages, she gave us orchids with red berries for our parents.. but I don’t like orchids and requested for pink eutomas instead. M’s corsage will be like my inspiration picture, large classic ivory rose. Simple and suited for him. 🙂

So what I’m getting:
1. Ivory/Blush Bouquet – Peonies, Roses, Eustomas
2. 4x Pink Eustomas Corsages
3. 2x White rose corsages

Cost: $150 + $30 = $180

I may not be an expert in this field, but from my basic knowledge of flowers this package is actually still okay, even with the top up! Corsages normally range from $10 – $12.. and a bouquet with peonies can cost from $150 – $200.

Picking up the bouquet will be done the night before the big day – 14th June 2013 at 6pm. .
I’m loving my bouquet already!
