Proposal + Wedding preparation Part 1
Hello everyone. It's been long since I write on this page.
Would like to share my wedding preparations and abit on my proposal since many people are getting married!
Truly, I felt so blessed and happy to be able to spend my rest of my life with him. It felt like I have known him for a long period of time. Maybe we were couple in our past life too. (hahaha)
I was so independent on him through this time and our honeymoon period is still ongoing.
31.12.16 was the date he chosen.
We had NYE countdown at Overeasy @ Fullerton where he paid for all my friend's entrance. It was expensive but I'm glad everyone enjoyed it. It was truly the best view of fireworks with the right company. So touched that he invited all my close friends. :')
Not forgetting my friend, Danny Ooi who was the awesome photographer came n surprised me!!
With that, we start with our wedding preparations. We were easy and we only went to one venue to see the ballroom and we decide to take on the package. This same goes to our bridal package.
We did not go down to several places before making our choices as we didn't want to waste time on finding it. Of cus, we read the reviews online first before heading down.
1) Our venue - Why we chose One degree fifteen to be our wedding venue?
We wanted to get somewhere within our budget and yet with a nice and relaxed ambience for our guest. (Budget is the most important thing in planning!)
Honestly we did not see other hotels banquet and my fiance and I are not very picky. We went down to one degree fifteen and we saw the banquet and place, we kinda like the place so we went ahead with it. It may be inconvenient but we plan to hire 2 buses to fetch guest to and fro sentosa cove. (We choose 1 bus to be picked at yishun and another bus at tampines)
They have a free shuttle bus to and fro Harbourfront MRT too but the bus is small and the timings are not favorable. Best is to hitch someone's car in! The invitation card gives free entry to sentosa and guest can get free parking at one degree fifteen.
Our sales manager is Charlene. She is a very nice lady but she is a very busy person so forgive her if she replies slow. We met her at one degree fifteen and she tour us around telling us how the actual day will be like.
We toured the ballroom and she showed us how big it will be, where it can fit a maximum of 36 tables. Charlene also mentioned we can choose the lighting colors, and they have a cute door gift for everyone too! Look at the bears.
This ballroom is taken 1 day before people's wedding thus there is no flower decorations yet.
The banquet area might not be the nicest ballroom around, as they do not have chandelier which I feel kinda wasted. Chandelier is the one that makes the ballroom pretty! But it's okay, we can decorate the ballroom with flowers.
We choose nova room to be our solemnization place, and it is pretty. It oversees the yacht area, where you can see most of the sentosa cove area.
They have roof top solemnization which is prettier but it's outdoor and you have to pray that it doesn't rain on that day.
2) Bridal package - The bridal package we took was from Fleur Dsign.
It was at ubi industrial area, where their warehouse is located. Fleur Dsign does floristry too! You can engage them if u need some flowers for your event.
The shop owner is Christina and she has a very helpful staff call Cass. Good service!
At the start, they only showed their white gowns, which were really pretty and they had many selections. I would say their package is really affordable.
The white gown is yours to bring home...so the gowns are all new and they don't give you the gown that other brides wore before. We paid additional to buy over the suit too and my fiancé bought 2 suit, grey and navy blue.
I tried only 3-4 gowns and I already picked my AD gown. Long train with sparkles and glitter!
So much love for this gown.
They do alterations too and it was fast, they have seamstress in their backroom!
They did not show much of their evening gowns because they do not have many selections, or maybe they do but the designs are not those that I will fancy.
I have chosen a navy wedding gown from them but am still on a lookout for a better choice!
Will be updating more about my process. So excited and I can't wait!
