Thanks for this. I am also in the midst of organizing my wedding, non-Chinese style in Church. But my location is in Malacca though.

Any example photos of your wedding would be super helpful as well. smile.gif

Well, I was planning like about 9 months ahead. Looking around for all the stuffs. Because my wedding is on an auspicious date in September (which I chose by accident based on the church's availability) so I quickly settled off the basics of everything. Now only left with the cake. As for me, I did not go a lot of places. Just get a few quotations around town and my area and if they don't fit, I will expand my search further down.

Ya, same. Mine also auspicious, (12/12), so hard to get the vendors we want/like. Haha.

Ring Story:

Fiancee: What is budget for ring?
Me: Best is RM1.5k for both rings.

Walks into Wah Chan One Utama

Fiancee: This design nice
Me: Ok, but we see first. Don't decide yet.

1 month later bought that ring there.

You all talking about Wedding Band right? Not the engagement ring?

Speaking of which, I have to shop for Wedding Bands soon...

My budget for wedding band is about 2k+
Poh Kong's quality is so cheapskate, at least Wah Chan still gave me discount when I asked and their rings are more solid for that kind of price. Poh Kong macam i pay 50cent put in the 'telur machine' twist twist keluar one..

I went to a few Poh Kong. They told me not to look at Yellow Gold. They said Yellow Gold better. And in fact, their Yellow Gold more expensive than White Gold.

I am confused. They told not to look at Yellow Gold but they say Yellow Gold better? rclxub.gif

Good for you, I wouldn't wanna take my parents' money plus I'm on the girl's end which supposed the guy should be footing most of the stuffs. Due to special case single mum side on my hubby and how she does not want our wedding to happen after all bcos she felt that I'm 'taking' away her son. The whole wedding is like a tragedy to her, instead of being happy she just made our life miserable. We just informed her on the date, and since then she did not spoke of anything about the wedding at all. Perhaps she might not even attend. I felt that it's such an insult to my family. Don't even think about footing the bill. But who gives a damn, I'm to marry the son.

Sorry to hear that. I understand what you mean, as I know some cases like that too.

Hi there! I`m already married. It was in May. We are really love this month! smile.gif  We had outdoor wedding, it was perfectly. My wife found a very interesting site with huge number of tips, ideas and more usefull things for a budget wedding click here We had a small and cozy wedding with guest list about 20 - 25 close friends. I liked it, I felt very comfortable. We had some cocktail party near pool. =) All guests really enjoyed it. The next day we went on a honeymoon trip. It was the best wedding (I think). I recommend you!

Nice, wish I could settle with a small number of guests too...

For me, not really. Wedding fairs make you fall for some impulsive decision especially those pre wedding packages, they will keep selling you that promo only valid for today and then at the end you bought and realise have to top up for a bit which is the same. If you really hv the time, I suggest you really sit back and consider and compare first.
*
This is very true, same goes for those travel fair if you're planning for honeymoon. I went to Matta Fair to check out ticket price, and ask around, quite panic because flight tickets to where we plan to go are selling out fast, but decided not to buy at Matta fair. Ended up checking online, managed to get even cheaper flight, plus its direct flight. rclxms.gif

eerrmm, just asking here;

for honeymoon, usually where you guys pick, Asian countries (Japan, Korea), or European countries (France, Spain) or Western (US,Canada)???

and most importantly, what's the duration, minimum 7 days is it??

thx for your answer
*
For me, we picked a rather expensive destination (London/Iceland), because its one of our bucket list, and what better way to tick it off with a honeymoon. Oh we are going for 2 weeks, and as mentioned, we managed to get rather good flight pricing for direct to London.

But the exchange rate is really killing us...

Honeymoon destination is really subjective, as said, its really somewhere both of you want to go together. And its not a must, but its a good way to kickstart the marriage, getting to know each other much more intimately in a relaxing and casual environment, without anyone else you know around you.

In fairy tales land, yes. But in reality, I would not count on it. Some people said, it even adds on to your problems. Don't ever get married because you felt that your life is not complete and need the other second half. Get married only when you know you are complete and ready to take on another reation ship commitment.

Just my half cents worth............ Cheers........  icon_rolleyes.gif

Nice, good advice. rclxms.gif

Go into a relationship knowing you are capable of taking care of others, and not needing others to take care of you. If both think like that, then it will be a happy relationship...
