If you’ve been reading my previous entries, you’d have known that I’ve just ROM-ed and prior to da big event, I was wrecking my mind over the solemnization dress. However, my worries were uncalled for – my fashion designer gf did some magic and conjured up my beautiful dress, just the way i liked it. Thanks so much, gal! *hugz*

Here’s a peek at the wonderful work 🙂

A lovely marriage of luxe lace with satin plus glittered netting for that extra twist 😉

Love the low back and the bow for extra support 😉

I ❤ my dress! If you’re clueless on what to wear for an upcoming event, regardless of the dress code (black tie, smart casual, semi-formal….), get help! For customization enquiries, pls contact Ms. Audrey: street.stylista@gmail.com 🙂

Good grief!

And so it IS already 2010.
We are 3 mths & 17 days into 2010, so to speak.
Goodness gracious! I know, i know – i deserve a spanking. Sorry folks for the lackof updates. Loads of things have happened over the months (with the turn of the year) and many-a-times, I’ve been wanting to write but the procrastinator in me takes over. Grrr….!

So to fast forward, here’s a quick list of what’s happening!
1) I now have perfect eyesight! *squeals* — Yes! i braved myself up for the long-awaited LASIK surgery. No more 4-eyed Mimi! (well, except tt now i hide behind my shades quite a bit – for UV protection. and for fashion’s sake too. teehee…)

2) Am officially a “Mrs“! — Nod nod. Our ROM came and went smoothly and flawlessly. Thank goodness. ‘Cept for the slightly hot weather, all was good 🙂 Marriage life is a tad different. I mean, now that we have our own home, we have to do everything by ourselves. And i do mean everything… housework, cooking, washing, blah blah blah. But I’m really fortunate that my other half is a truly wonderful man. He puts in 101% for the housework in addition to his new position @ Society Uni. Prior to moving in, he harnessed 200% of energy, spirit and tremendous efforts in building our love nest. Thank you, baby :*

3) Our wedding dinner is 6mths away! — *Yikes* i tell u… times flies unknowingly. Especially when u’re not doing much. Preparations for the big day would need to commence soon! Decor theme, flowers, card printing…. Argh!! Horror of horrors! Nothing is done except having booked the ballroom for our special day *guilty*

4) Bridal Studio not picked yet! — Another heart attack. With just a few mths to go, we urgently need to settle with a BS like reallyyyy soon! Am so confused with all the package details blah blah. Most imptly, they are so costly. Bye bye dreams of any overseas photoshoot 😦

5) I’m not a Tai-Tai — Yes, indeed i’m not. I am officially not working at the moment but am actively looking out for a new job. Wonderfully timed right? With a million things happening at the same time. Sheesh. Well, hoping for the right company with the right package and career prospects to pick mi soon. Very much like searching for a husband. haha! 😀

And today you learned a little bit more about me.

I’m a huge procrastinator 😉

Whilst doing some research on ideas for the perfect dress, one of the links brought me to this blogsite set up by a newlywed, who put up beautifully taken pictures from her wedding. I totally love the bright, cheery colours, i tell you! I’m so gonna consider the colour scheme for mine. keke. But first, have to propose the idea to my boy 😛

Am hunting for various references for my ultimately perfect dress for the ROM. Any suggestions, recommendations or ideas? As it would be an outdoor event, am thinking of a short one with a touch of girliness, yet pure and as serious as the event itself. To top it off, I’ll be leaving the perfect dress in the good hands of my designer friend, Audrey! I’m sure she’ll conjour up the most beautiful piece, channelling all the charm of a perfect wedding 😉
 Here’s a few I’ve chanced upon thus far:

TW Bridal

Puffiness Exuding Girlish Princessy-ness~

 Maybe it’s the model’s long, sexy locks. Maybe it’s the lush greenery and the romantic harmony of the grass with the skies. This dress caught my eyes when I was flipping thru’ Taiwan’s Wei Wei Bridal. Love the sweet girlish (and possibly even impish?) touch 😉

TW Bridal

Textures + Chiffon Layers = Chic!

 Spotted in Taiwan’s Wei Wei Bridal mag too,  love how the train falls so nicely creating a wonderful balance when worn, rather than being way too long and threatening to pull one’s weight aside. Nice chiffon layering too!

Gavin Douglas' Layers the Textures

This one’s of an ideal length, also depicting the layered textures that I seem to have taken a liking to. The embellishments at the waist area looks sophisticated and I’m making a mental note. hehe.


Interesting ruffles on the dress! A tiny concern on whether they may look messy and weigh the dress down when standing though. (hmmm…) Like the details on the chest area though since they are efforts to emphasize a lady’s bosom buddies 😛


French Lace?

A pretty conservative piece, this dress adds a touch of French class and looks so preeeety! Hm, but since we’ll be having our solemnization ceremony in the outdoors, i’m kinda worried i might end up melting in the sweltering heat. Bride with dripping armpits? Not.a.good.sign.

That’s all for now on dresses. Stumbled upon an interesting blogsite by a newlywed. Off to check it out! Will dedicate an entry to it 😉

Admist juggling work above all else, i’m also busy with research work in preparation for our big day. Yup, you read right! I’m finally, officially and legally-recognised as a “grown-up”! (Haha, ok i’m definitely over 21).

With just a couple more months to go, my guy and I know that we’re actually pretty lax for now. With a list of things NOT done, we’re starting to feel the jitters man. Here’s a quick mental note to self on the to-do stuff:
1) Theme for ROM setting incld. decor
2) Theme for outfits includ. shoes, accessories etc.
3) Wedding favours
4) Get a photographer & videographer
5) Makeup artiste cum hair stylist
6) JP ~ confirmed! 🙂
7) Venue ~ confirmed! 🙂

And most importantly.....
we have yet to submit the e-filing for ROM!
