Le Wedding Proposal

The groom decided to have a proposal for the bride, so she will have no regrets. It wasn't a very grand one, but it surely was a crowded one!

The groom started planning for it the minute he was back from Singapore. The bride thought, why was he so busy lately, and why was he meeting up with so many friends, his really have gotten lotsa friends! Later did she know it was all for the surprise she had.

Due to the song Marry Me by Bruno Mars, we weren't able to upload the video on facebook and youtube. We uploaded it on youku instead. Hopefully you can still watch it! Enjoy!

新郎为了让新娘准备了个大惊喜,好让新娘将来没有遗憾。求婚不是个隆重的,但肯定是个人多的。

新浪从新加坡回去没多久就已经开始策划了。新娘以为怎么新浪这么忙,朋友那么多,之后才发现原来是为了给她的惊喜。

因为播放的歌曲的关系,我没办法在facebook上分享只能在优酷分享了。希望大家还能观看!

Best Wedding Tools ever!

We must quote that the www.perfectweddings.sg" rel="nofollow">www.perfectweddings.sg provide the best wedding tools ever! It suited us, Singaporeans in the most perfect way! Most importantly, it is free!

There is checklist in it, so we won't forget things. It even reminded us to contact our solemniser soon, in case he/she is booked. And we saw in it when we should find my photographer and make up artist for that day. So, especially for those of us who are ever so excited and busy of our wedding, this is a very good tool to keep our calmness!

Then they let us create a wedding website (like what you are reading now), where we can share our experience with all other friends who are going to go through this hard period. 

It is now an age of technology. We can be efficient easily. So, in this website, you can also do up your RSVP form for your family and friends to fill up. Maybe for some relatives, it is still better to pay them a visit. But for friends, you can save the trouble to SMS-ing or whatsapp-ing them for their address and details one by one, where sometimes you might miss our somthing in the process.

Upon filling up the RSVP form, the details will be sent to their Guest List manager automatically. You can download the table in excel format, and upload you ready ones from excel format too. 

All these tools made our planning so much easier, especially when only the bride is a Singaporean. 

 


 

我们在 www.perfectweddings.sg" rel="nofollow">www.perfectweddings.sg 找到了非常棒的结婚策划工具!非常适合新加坡新人的结婚工具。重点是,这是免费的!

 网站里会有准备好的清单。跟着清单的流程,它提醒了我们需要联络我们的注册官,把他或她的档期订下。然后也提醒了我们必须订一下我们结婚当天的摄影师和化妆师。尤其是对我们这些过于兴奋与忙碌的新人,这些工具可以让我们淡定许多。

然后它也让我们自造自己的结婚网页(就像你现在在浏览的网站)。我们可以在网站上和朋友分享我们策划结婚的过程,以及这段时间的酸甜苦辣。 

现在是科技发达的年代。我们很容易就可以有很高的效率。所以这网站能够让你做出邀请回复的表格,让你们的亲戚朋友填。可能亲戚方面还是会到他们家里串串门,可是朋友的话就能够省下一个一个发信息的麻烦。而且在发信息的当儿说不定还漏了什么细节。所以这表格就很到位啦。

把表格填完并提交之后,资料会自动出现在客人名单管理器里(Guest List manager)。完成后可以下载它的excel档,或是上传以完成的excel档。

所以说,这些工具让我们的策划简单许多。更何况我们俩,只有新娘是新加坡人。

You are invited!

Wedding Dates confirmed

After days and days of discussion, we have finally finalised our wedding dates!

Due to our ever-so-far distance, we are going to hold our banquet at two different places. So, here's our plan.

14 October 2014 will be the actual date of our marriage. We will be holding our wedding at Shandong, the hometown of the groom. On that day, the traditional ceremony will take place, followed by the banquet for the groom's side family and friends. To all our other friends who are thinking about travelling, you are definitely welcome to join us. How many times can you attend a wedding in a foreign country? 

Tips: You can flyscoot to Qingdao, and take the bullet train to Taian to attend the wedding. Otherwise, change flights from Guangzhou, Shanghai or Beijing to get to Jinan airport.

Note: We are bringing the bride's parents for a short tour too. Cool

Then on 27 December 2014, we will be having our solemnisation and luncheon at Orchid Country Club where the bride's family and friends are all invited. Cheers!

 


 

在和家人的协商下我们终于决定了结婚日期!

由于我们的距离都非常远,所以将会有两个婚宴。

2014年10月14日将是我们的结婚日。我们会在男方的家乡山东泰安举行婚礼。当天也会有我们的传统结婚仪式及为男方的亲戚朋友举行的婚宴。我们当然其他新加坡朋友的参与。你们可以在旅游的当儿过来玩玩,多好呀?

你们可以搭Flyscoot廉价航空到青岛,然后搭快铁到泰安参加婚宴。不然也可以选择在广州,上海或北京转机到济南。

注意:我们将会带女方家长去玩玩喔!

然后就是我们12月27日的午宴。这午宴将会陪同我们的注册仪式。邀请了女方的亲戚朋友在Orchid Country Club举行。

Busy days ahead

We have finally gotten permission from both of our parents about our wedding! Weeeeee!

It is going to be so difficult as both of us are in two different places. Like my dad said, that is a problem that both the families can compromise.

We went to Bugis Guan Yin Temple, and get the old lady to help us with the wedding dates. She is very friendly and nice. She even advised us to keep everything simple since both of us are from two different places, where there are definitely costs incurred elsewhere. She told us to have buffets at home and invite all relatives over. We don't think we are doing that, but a 5-star hotel is definitely out of our choices. It is less than four months to our customaries, and less than six months to our Singapore luncheon dates. It seems so rush, so hope everything is moving smoothly! Hope we can get a decent place. Fingers crossed!



 

终于得到双方父母的许可,我们要结婚了!

由于我们俩来自两个非常不一样的地方,我们策划婚礼时肯定会遇到很多困难。还好我爸说这是双方家庭可以调和的事情。

因为有了许可,我们到了四马路观音庙请了那里的婆婆帮我们选结婚日子。她很亲切友善,知道我们的距离还建议我们所有仪式可以从简,因为我们将来还会有其他开销。而且还说可以请亲戚朋友到我们家里吃个自助餐,不需要到五星级酒店举行。

还有不到四个月就到我们的传统结婚婚宴,不到六个月就举行新加坡的午宴。事情好多,时间不多。希望可以一切顺利。希望能找到个还不错的结婚地点。祝我们好运咯!
