let's check what my fh and i have done so far:
1. booked the restaurant and paid the deposit
2. printed the invitation cards and waitting for the delivery of the products
3. did the studio photo shoot

talking about the photo shoot, i am so so so anxious to view the photo. i have no choice but to hold myself down, gritting my teeth until the day come. two weeks! how am i going to spend these two weeks.
i found a new hobby. i surf on wedding pictures. real pictures, by real couples and real events. there are plenty on the internet. and in malaysia, people like to follow trend. last time doing studio is a big hoo hah. now they are blowng their trumpet on event photograhy. to name a few famous event photograpers are the likes of david chua, grant corban, andy lim and kid chan. almost all of them have their own official website. and they actually post their clients photo up. both for their clients' convenience and to promote their WORK at the same time.
mind you, event photography come with a price. other than photograpers' fees, there is also abortive and unsatisfactory works. not all people looks good LIVE. on the more positive note, it does bring back memories when u look back at the album after 20 years. the album usually covers everything from the groom picking up the bride in the morning until the dinner event at night. the whole album became very PERSONALISED.
my another favourite site is david's bridal. i m to lazy to link it here. it's ang moh site. ang moh usually buy or custom make their wedding gown. surprisingly, my mum custom made hers also. deep inside i am very very tempted to do so too. loves their gown, simple an elegent, loves how they add colors to it. i might adopt this on my actual day gown. there are so many designs. this site can keep me busy for a few weeks.
there is a small section in this site for plus sized ladies. i m so envious of them. but i am still grateful that i can find gowns my size locally. i am totally in love in those V necks. but after a quotations from local boutique, my face fell to the ground. after sleepless nites, i realised i can do so much more with that money so i decided to give it a pass.
