i've booked appointments with a few bridal shops to try specific dress types: light gold/champagne, fish tail, one shoulder.... just to see if they look good on me and i can go back to my designer and say "yup, on the right track!"

yup, my appts this saturday are for the big day & la sposa. i've been to both before. i think for the big day, serina doesn't have too many in stock but she can design a dress according to your budget, if i'm not wrong. the lady who recommended serina to me had her daughter's dress made by serina.
so far, my favourite has been la sposa but shhhhhhhh i won't be buying a dress from any of the bridal shops here (i don't plan to, unless something disastrous happens!) because i'm getting one designed in singapore to fit my theme. but i want to make sure that the colour & style i have in mind actually suit me, and not just in my imagination!
i saw two umbrella pole thingies (garden parasols) at East Meets West in Mitchell St and i thought they'd be perfect for our ceremony, instead of an arch. So i'm going to check them out again on Saturday and buy them...sucks that they're $65 each but i hope to re-sell them on ebay or something!
oh, and i think i've found THE song... the song i'm gonna walk down the aisle to: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_lLPBS4Qgqo

Just a heads up though, I've had a really hard time with ImpressionNT (located in the city). Please be weary when using any of their services. I won't disclose details but I just thought I would warn you.
Darwinian wrote:Something I didn't mention previously was that I stayed at the apartments at the Medina (wave pool). The staff were excellent and the rooms were awesome. The rooms were cheaper then other apartments in the city. I paid $270.00 for the Saturday night and $220.00 for the Sunday night. I know it sounds expensive but I felt it was money well spent. To stay at Evolution apartments was going to cost me $470.00 a night.
Transport was one of the issues we had with ImpressionNT along with there inability to return phone calls, emails or even be at their office during work hours. It kinda made for a really stressful time leading up to the wedding and we are still chasing them: ( It's a real pity because they have a lot of good stuff on offer.
My husband organised the wedding cake and that was through Kurts Cakes. I wanted the traditional three tiered cake but the hubby wanted cupcakes so Kurt compromised and created what looked like a cake but was actually square cupcakes close together. VERY IMPRESSIVE. We got to "cut" the cake and best of all our wedding cake had various flavours (some were choc, white choc, plain, baileys).
Michael from Infocus was our photographer and I would highly recommend him. I really wanted “fun” photos and he was super cool at making sure we got a few fun ones. Just make sure that you ask for Michael as your photographer as there are a few photographers at Infocus.
