Last minute wedding prep is seriously not a joke. #dayrebrides
Anyway, I refused to wash my hair after my bridal trial cos I didn't want the colour to fade more (the vanity 😅)
So I planned only to wash it once tomorrow before the wedding on Sat. 🙃
When my husband saw me today with my semi curled hair leftover from the trial he was like…
Eh…you look like Kylo Ren
Punch you ok Fatty Ng.
The other day after I washed my hair…he said I looked like Professor Snape.
Proceeded to sing the Snape song all day long.
So annoying this guy!!!!!!
Tried to straighten the curls and tame my crazy crazy hair.
But wts the stupid travel sized hair straightener I got for like $3 on Taobao is too damn freaking tiny.
Either that or I just have a shit ton of hair and only a huge regular sized big ass straightener works for me 😢🙃
Nevermind. At least I looked decent.
UNTIL I TIED MY HAIR UP. Cos too damn hot. And then the waves went insane again -_-
To the extent that Adele told me to tie my hair up when I let it down 😢 is it so bad.
We went down to the wedding venue to run a sound check today and lucky it went smoothly! 😅
I rushed through the video editing yesterday so we could use the actual video for the trial.
But I'm still not done with the final edits and exporting. So now I feel like I might die.
Cos 24 hours is not enough??? 🙃 What if I only finish exporting on the afternoon of the wedding Hahahaha.
We also spent most of the day packing door gifts and whatnot at the new place with part of the bridal party 🙃
Eh taking the chance to show off our LED neon lights which I custom made hehe. My FIL and Fatty Ng put it up on the wall recently and
I LUV IT
It's freaking zilian and my neighbours might think I'm running a karaoke pub or….something worse.
BUT I STILL LUVIT.
Lol my half assed attempt at a selfie cos…
I'm a half assed person???
Btw it's the same kind of lights as the one I custom made for OBC hehe.
Showing off my stellar team here. Made up of a couple of weirdos I can no longer do without ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
Also settled the car decor in advance cos the boys did the exact same thing last year
They are very experienced now ok.
If anyone wants to hire my boys for car decor customisation pls contact me #pimping
And yes, I reused the decor from last year cos…already so perfect? I'm damn proud of my idea (inspired by some vintage bridal car on Pinterest) of using Christmas wreaths and pipe decor for my bridal cars.
Someone actually ripped off this idea and then proceeded to post in the budget brides Facebook group and claimed it as her original idea. 🙄😒
It was exactly the same ok. Even the font + the placement of the name and banner in the wreath was the same. 🙄
Reyna also sent over some photos of my morning look and…
Very nice hor 😅
I actually never like it when people ask me to pose for photos (because I usually look like a friggin potato)
But I actually look quite nice leh! 🙃
I think it's definitely the make up + hair and the floral crown haha.
If there's one thing I'm obsessed with. It is definitely floral crowns.
Still nice from the other side 🙃
Oh btw, I wanted to talk about my evening gown LOL
I never really talked about it cos I was damn busy these few days la…never even get to try this on properly.
I just lupped it on and then I went like ok it fits. And took it off. 🙄
Picture is not mine, I stole it off Taobao hahaha.
Picture is still not mine, still koped from Taobao
I actually got it because uh it's cheap and also cos I wanted to wear a maroon gown (haha) so ya lo
I actually didn't really like the mesh covering the centre of the V neck??? But idk why most of the listings had it???
Also this was advertised as a pregnant woman dress. But…I'm not pregnant. And I got it. Didn't matter. Sitll gorgeous.
Picture is….still not mine
Problem is haha I didn't really try properly until just now and I also just removed the tag.
And I realised I hated the V mesh omg.
Idk it's because my boobs too big or what. The whole dress looked very gawdy on me 🙃
So at midnight I started unpicking the material in the middle and detaching the floral appliqué.
Almost went blind 🙃
Almost done LOL.
You can tell there's abit of mesh at the bottom which I folded down hence it's not really a real V and quite flat at the bottom 😅
Homg but after I was done and I removed the mesh…
Then I realised LOLLLLLLL.
The hole is damn big. In the picture above I already pinned it up HAHWHWHW
Without pinning it was like I was wearing an apron. A very obscene apron 🙃
After some adjustments…
Not bad la!
I like it much better now. Hahaha.
Before you say it's because I like to show off my ( .)( .)
It's not true hor. I just don't like it when people design a V cut dress that cuts to the waist line then put a mesh in the middle????
Like hello. If you don't want to V until so low then don't V until so low! Why must V already then mesh leh??? 🙃
I know you must be thinking…
Eh chow. You know you don't like. Then you still buy????
Ya I know how you feel. Cos I feel the same way.
When I put on the dress. I'm like.
EHHHHH. Why ahhhh???? 🙃
But too late! And even tho I needed to unpick and cut away shit 24 hours before my wedding…..
🙃 I did it.
Dat Boothie!!! 🍳
One of the things I splurged on for the wedding is our photobooth! 🙃
I really enjoy wedding photobooths and the other time we had our flea at Artbox we actually paid to have our photos taken la!
My criteria were that they actually a set up a booth (like a box booth) instead of just like a camera + backdrop. Cos the experience is just different!
Also, unlimited filmstrip prints please!
But I am really really super pleased with the service and professionalism so far! 👍👍👍👍👍👍
I know #dayrebrides usually review their vendors after the event is done, but…sorry I'm so happy already so I want to just share first in case I forget!
We engaged Dat Boothie cos they set up an actual vinatge style photobooth at the venue and I just liked their overall vibe la! Hehe. I thought I would have gone with the brand at the Artbox booth, but I realised they don't set up the booth at weddings and instead go for the usual camera + backdrop set up which I didn't…like. 😅
So I chanced upon Dat Boothie and I was like OK THIS IS IT haha. I judge a brand a lot by their copy and their web design (if I am a customer and I went to my own site I might just punch myself so 😅)
But my coordinators were damn professional and damn hardworking in their follow up. I basically paid, hooked them up with my venue PIC and then never had to worry anymore.
Today they sent over the customized egg photostrip design and I BURST with happiness la!
I think I lucked out w vendors.
Everyone I had the fortune of working with is so nice. And professional and independent!!!!!
I'm a shitty last minute bride so their ability to cope with my last minute requests and lack of confirmation until very near the AD was really a huge blessing la 😢😢😢
#blessed and delirious cos I am damn tired 👍
#notsponsored ok! I am not some big time blogger with their fancy sponsored weddings! I am a slave to my material desires 😅
Just done boxing up our door gifts and I am starving 😢😢😢😢😢😢
We're going to drop these off at China Club today so we won't have to do it tomorrow 😅
I'm so tired tho. I feel like I need food and lots of coffee 😢
Showing off my wedding present which is….
More 🍳 from my husband haha. So cute right. I never knew there were egg versions 😅😅
Done with the jiemei and xiongdi cars!!!!
Damn bochap this time round cos…simple and elegant ok guys!!!! 🙃
I've been infinitely blessed to have met these guys in my line of work 😢😢😢😢😢
Haha we always video call and voice call for extended period of times so they know what's going on in my life (including finding the perfect bra for my gowns 😅😢).
Then today, both of them came to drop well wishes and give me angpaos. 😢😢😢 So so so sweet la!
Anyway, China is too cool already la. WeChat angpaos are like cooler than Paylah! or Pay Anyone.
In any case, I am infinitely blessed ✨✨
Counting my blessings
I'm having a quiet moment now, very rare since I've been accompanied by someone (either a bridal sister ❤️ or husband Ng) these few days while running errands.
So these moments have been rare for me. But now as I'm sitting here, I truly kind of see why people love weddings so much and why it's such a huge thing.
Daniel's family has been seeing visitors almost everyday for the past week, either people who are here to wish us well or to basically hang out and be excited.
My family is much quieter but there's just this sense of business and happiness that's there. The little things my mum has been doing, like stocking up the fridge, clearing the porch and pasting stickers.
Aiya, I think weddings just make people so so happy. Even if it isn't their own.
And I think that kind of makes everything, all the trouble and money, worth it right?
Such a magical thing, celebrations and weddings are. 🙃
I don't know if that's the correct term haha. 🙃
But it's when the parents come and comb the hair of the bride/groom and give them well wishes! Haha. I used to think it was only for the bride but my dad did it for my brother also 😅
Btw my mum made me wear her pyjamas. Which are like freaking 40 years old. 🙃 It was what she wore when she got married.
Hahahahahahahahhhahahhaha. It's hilarious.
LOL my mum is still a packet of fries! 🙃
But my parents are very cute and my father was apparently very excited to wish me good blessings haha.
My mum is the best. She said "you are a wife now, must be a good wife."
Which makes me very sad every time she says it cos idk why she must say it in a very melancholic tone 😢
Not like anything will be different cos we are technically already married for a year 😅😅😅
If there is only one type of bride I can be.
I can only be the funny kind.
Cos my best friend is a duapisai that takes damn unglam boomerangs of me.
Which I proceed to share on Dayre 🙃
This is the duapisai I am sleeping with tonight 🙃
Haha it's damn hilarious, it looks like we are the ones getting married.
Btw don't tell my mum I changed out of my pyjamas. I was bursting out of the pyjamas pants 😅
Ok bye 🙃
