Lawfully Wedded

Our wedding is over. So is our honeymoon. Two of our biggest events of the year (and our lives) whizzed past in a flash. All that preparations, anticipation, worries, disagreements, money, yadah yadah, evapourated within half a day. And through the >half year worth of fuss, I couldn’t relate more with these feelings.

On the actual day itself, I had a lot paiseh moments and it is true that no matter how much you plan, the day just unfolds to not how you envisioned it to be. There were a lot of details I wished I had the time to personally take care of, but the whole time Loti and I were running around like mad chickens. Nevertheless, there were no major screw ups, weather god was on our side, and we received generally very positive feedback from our guests and I’m very thankful for that.

When the dust settles, everything feels the same (except I suddenly have to call someone else “mother” which I’m still trying to get used to). I’m back to my normal life with a new status. Will update my honeymoon soon and also my wedding photos when I get them from my official photographer 😉

The Countdown is Real

I’m getting hitched, in less than 20 days’ time.

Three years ago when Loti proposed, everyone kept asking me when is my wedding etc, until they gave up and forgot about it. Now, it’s happening.

Due to me and Loti’s keep-everything-simple attitude, we seem like one of the most bo chup couples. But honestly, simple simple also got a lot headaches one. And much as we want to escape from all the traditions, there are some wars we cannot win, so follow lorrr. No wonder people always say plan wedding sure fight.

However within lies some fun moments like designing our own wedding invites, Loti decorating the terrarium to be our ring holder, DIY-ing my hand bouquet for the first time, and so on.

Most girls (me inclusive), while growing up, would fantasize about their dream wedding – especially when watching movies or looking at older people you know get married. A decade ago, I’d think that I’ll hold a beach wedding, with my imaginary groom and myself all dressed in white; screen a cheesy video montage and make all my guests laugh; have my groom sing a song for me; take princessy outdoors and studio pre-wedding photos wearing a few killer gowns (LOL).

Now that I’m planning it actually, I know it’ll turn out very different. No beach no montage no song no pre-wed shoots no killer gowns, only gown. I almost even chose one that might cost less than some of my guests hahaha, which I’ll talk more about it in the next post.

Two more weekends to go and I still haven’t gone for my trial make up, gown fitting, and gather all my bridesmaids to decide on gate crashing activities :\ Super wahahaha good luck to me!

Alan and Shihui <3

Finally, a wedding which belonged to a close cousin. The bliss that ‘Han 哥哥’ (the cheesy name that I’ve been calling him since young) and his wife shared seemed so infectious that I was all chocked up in happiness too. Congrats to them lah!

This post is way overdue though, but I’ll post up a few photos anyways.

I’ve always fancy shots like this.

We did not all dress up in purple on purpose.

Cam whoring in the grand toilet of the newly wed’s hotel suite.

Beautiful receps WAHAHAHAHAA.

The speech was so so heartwarming. TBH I teared lor. If my future husband ever say something so touching on our big day (if that is even happening), I think I’d just WAIL OUT LOUD on the stage. Sure super lau kui.
