We are LESS THAN ONE MONTH away from the wedding! SAY WHATTT!!!! *panic mode*
We started planning sooooo early (1 year ago) that we actually lost a bit of steam along the way HAHA, and only really got on track about 3 months before. So actually, planning a wedding in three months is pretty do-able!
That is, if you’re really not that fussy and prefer a run-of-the-mill wedding.
Not that I have anything against one of those. In fact, if he had a choice, Mr Mode would prefer to just have our names signed on construction paper, presented to HDB for recognition of a lawful marriage, and call it a day.
But I would probably most likely definitely berate him for the rest of our lives for not giving me my dream wedding. So this wedding is really for him, to spare him the agony of my nagging. BAHAHA!
I don’t want a cookie-cutter wedding, which explains why I took great effort into ensuring all my wedding sponsors are one of the best in town. 😀
Wedding Decorator – Rosette Designs
One year ago, while researching on wedding decorators in Singapore, I came across Rosette Designs. The photo gallery containing collages of their works left a deep impression but I left it as that as it was too early to plan anything and we didn’t even have our wedding date finalized yet!
One year later, after researching on plenty of wedding decorators, I went back to Rosette. Haha! If you take a look at their gallery, you will know what I mean.
After meeting Hellen, principal designer of Rosette, a couple of times and conveying the theme I have in mind, Hellen put together a mood board. I’m SOOOOO looking forward to our wedding day deco!
I think it’s very important to set the color theme right. Even if you don’t have a strong theme eg. vintage/glamorous/colorful/rustic, at least have a color theme so everything looks more cohesive.
Choosing the color theme was quite fun for me coz I like to mix and match textures and colors. But don’t worry if you have no idea coz Hellen will be there to guide you!
Bun Bun is finally donning a wedding gown! Heehee!! I love the groom! Hellen and the team nailed the essence of Mr Mode – the hair, eyes, mouth. And we’re the same breed of alien coz we both have 4 ears.
Wedding Photographer – Confetti Peektures
I wanted a photographer who could understand and bring out the beauty of our wedding theme. It sure wasn’t easy finding one.
Actual Day Photography
‘Vintage garden wedding’ doesn’t really explain in full how I envision the wedding theme to be. It’s more than that. We are holding it at a vintage venue, but we don’t want an overkill of all things old and granny. We want it to be romantic, but with a bit of fun, a pop of color, and in accordance to our personalities, a more light-hearted and fun vibe! The photos must reflect these!
I found in Confetti Peektures the perfect photographer – Angie! When we met to understand my concept and discuss what Angie can propose, I was over the moon that she could get what I want. She has way more photos in her iPad so I would recommend meeting up with her for a discussion.
I love that Angie captures emotions very well (you can take a look at her gallery). Some couples like photographers who take glorious scenery but I prefer those who focus on emotions and expressions coz they’re the hardest to capture and the most precious.
Casual Pre-wedding Photoshoot
Mode and I met in secondary school and we wanted to eternalize this memory with pictures. So today we went back to school for a casual pre-wedding photoshoot, to re-create childhood memories. HAHA! It was a little nerve-wrecking to write an email to the school to ask for permission. Thank goodness they were very nice and granted us that.
We got our uniforms re-produced to the way they looked back in 1999 and found old-school white shoes and socks too.
