My bf is a superman!

Today is the day to collect our gowns at BQueens!

My bf is the type wont allow me to carry heavy items, its not because he wants to treat me like a princess. If he is able to shoulder it or simply just carrying heavy items for me, he should be the one doing it because he is a man and its his duty to do it. 

You may think the gowns are very light but I tell you, the white gown is very heavy! 

Thank you baby for being the best that you can be for me. ^_^

Gown rental @ BQueens for pre-wedding photo shoot!

Its always a girl thing to try on different gowns but for me I just want to try on what I like! Hehe! 

After sourcing for quotation from a few bridal shop, I decided to go with, BQueens. They are really good in their customer service. Super friendly and nice! Even though they are slightly more expensive than the other bridal shop but because of their good service and beautiful gowns. I really can't say no. 

Photos are taken using my bf's phone. I quite regret as his hp has bad resolution! The gown really looks good in actual! Lol!

This is the first gown I picked and its a love at first sight! Other white gowns simply cannot compare with this. It has nice sparkling effect on the top and elegant "cloud feel" layered for the bottom. I "chop" this immediately! 

I cant decide to pick this pink or the next white short gown that Hebe, the coordinator recommended.

Im not so fat la! The waist is very lose as its has yet to be altered. 

I only wanted to rent 2 gowns but couldnt decide to rent the pink one or the white short gown. But guess what? Hebe decided to throw in as a package for us! So nice of her! Hehe! It save our headache and $$$$ 

Heres other gowns that I didnt choose. 

Red makes me look too serious or old which doesnt suit my style. Haha!

Bf said this is too short and I agree... Hais! Too bad I dont have a slim leg. I dont know if I can ever slim down again. Lol! 

Nice white gown but it cant be compare with the first white gown that I tried. 

Its a happy trip to the bridal shop! Now we look forward to our photo shoot day! ^_^

Blissful solemnisation at Bliss House

This place is definitely 1 of my favourite but being my favourite always comes with a price. Lol!

For minimum spending for the Garden area is $3k, which means... most likely its OUT. Four the House area, minimum spending is $2k so its still healthy =D

Photos for the 'House'.

The door to enter. The chairs outside belongs to the Garden area.

Their food menu & must be minimum 30pax
$55++ x 30 = $1650
$65++ x 30 = $1950
$75++ x 30 = $2250

Drinks for 4 hours 
$15++ x 30 = $450

Lets say, I just take the cheapest menu $1650 + $450 = $2100++

Quite a good package price as well. We are going down this coming Fri. Lets hope theres no other hidden cost when we meet up with the coordinator.

Wulu wedding solemnisation @ Skyve Wine Bistro

Here's the next venue which I find it quite cheap. The place looks nice but its not very convenient. Im not sure if I will like the place but if its value for money then why not? I must keep in mind that we still need to spend for a bigger wedding next year =)

Heres the reply from the venue:


Thanks for your email and also interest in having your wedding event at Skyve.
We are pleased to inform you that we are still available on the 26th Oct and we are all excited to have you and your guests with us.

Attached will be the Solemnisation Package which we would like to propose to you.
This menu and food style is actually good for small parties and gathering for couples to host for their immediate families and close friends.
Since you are having 25 pax would recommend you to take up our Lounge area (min 40 pax taking up the canapes menu or min spend: $1800++) for this joyous occasion.
This package would entitled you the exclusive usage of the area for 3 hours, 10-1pm11-2pm12-3pm1-4pm or 2-5pm.

Alternatively, if you are looking for something which is more filling for the guests' stomach, you can consider our buffet lunch too.
However, for our buffet lunch, we have a MOQ of 30 pax.

For kids, we also have a kids menu for your kind consideration.

Alongside, we are also pleased to offer decoration & floral services to make it seamless for planning and which includes the following:
- One Solemnization table decor and styling with floral centerpiece and table runner
- Bride & Groom chair decor with flower posies
- Solemnization/Ceremony backdrop with a Choice of: English Paper Lanterns or Farm-inspired Buntings or Elegant Drapes or Bohemian Leaves
- One Bridal hand Bouquet
- One Groom Boutonniere
P.S. Choice of Flowers: Roses, Eustomas, Gerbera, Baby’s breath
Flowers and colors can be tweaked on preferred theme

For the above decoration items, it would be an additional of $680 nett (optional and paid to our vendor directly)

Here is another link which lead you to an article which we host a similar scale wedding event as yours. Hope this is would be a good reference for you.

I would recommend us to have a meet up and share your requirements and expectations with us so that we can then put together a suitable and unique proposal for you.

Photos credit goes to the link above


Their menu - $60++ x 30pax (must be minimum 30) = $1800++
Solemnisation decor - $680nett
Total - $2480++

The amount is not too expensive. It still within my $3k budget. Maybe can go down to have a look as well. 

Have some coffee @ Coffeemin for solemnisation?

I got quite shocking news last week that more of my bf's relatives are coming. From 20 pax increase to 26 pax. Which means I need more budget for the solemnisation and also 1 of my preferred choice - Fullerton Bay Hotel: The Pod will be out of my sight soon.

Oh well, so my search begins again. I found this cute coffee house available for booking. Heres the email reply from them.


Thank you for your interest in Coffeemin! Our Clarke Quay outlet is available on 26th October 2016.

By leasing our cafe, you get to enjoy exclusively all the facilities as well as free flow of specially brewed coffee and snacks.

The estimated cost for a 3 hour event is as follows:
Venue booking fee
$60 x 3h = $180
 11am - 2pm
Cover charges
26 x $12.60 = $327.60
minimum 15 pax
Event administrative fee
Weekend surcharge




The estimated cost for a 4 hour event is as follows:
Venue booking fee
$60 x 4h = $240
 11am - 3pm

If Im gonna book for 4 hours = $674.40 
Currently total 26 pax = $18 x 26 =  $468

Total = $1142.40 (WOW! This is so much cheaper than my budget!) 

The venue is walking distance from Clark Quay. Im not sure if I will like the place but maybe we should just pay this place a visit.

Garden Wedding @ Lewin Terrace

Alright I Know its a little bit misleading, I should write it as "Garden Solemnisation @ Lewin Terrace".  Hehe! Anyway, I saw the pictures of Lewin Terrance, it looks really nice and peaceful. Heres the reply

Our restaurant has a maximum capacity of 80-100pax for sitting and 150pax for standing, and the minimum spending will be at $8,000++(Lunch) and $12,000++(Dinner) for exclusivity. For your group of 20pax, you can occupy the private dining area which will be perfect for an intimate wedding at Lewin Terrace and the required minimum spend will be at $1250++(Lunch)and $2,500++(Dinner). Depending on your requirements and budget, we will be able to work out a package catered to your needs.

Hmmm... I think if only spend $1250 for lunch doesn't sound too expensive after all. I wonder how much is their menu and how is their food there like. However, Im also not sure if the private dinning is indoor or outdoor as those pictures the venue i/c sent looks like an its a non-air-con but sheltered area. 

EDIT: Latest update - We went for the site visit. End up there is alot of hidden cost. The coordinator didn't mention in the email the setup for the solemnisation tables and chairs requires additional $200. Also when we meetup with the coordinator, she seems not very experience. That time we are looking at around 20 pax. When we at onsite to check out the private dinning room, theres a 14 pax long table seating setting. It already look very cramp! She still mentioned can squeeze in another 6 more chairs. Why would I want my guest to suffer? -__-

Solemnization Venues - Gardenasia

I was on a lookout for our soleminisation venue and erm... he has yet to proposed. Lol! But I know the dates is gonna be 30th November 2017 (my own guess). Forlino has been my dream location as I really love the view from the restaurant and also their interior design. Nonetheless, I still do some search for other nice and affordable location.  I sent several emails out and the first venue to reply was... Gardenasia! As its only a solemnisation we decided to only invite our direct families and closest friends. So I estimate maybe a 15 - 20pax?

 Gardenasia - Patio 

 Not sure if I will be keen in this venue as some other venues they dont have additional charges for the venue rental. So I shall just KIV.
