I jumpstarted my DIYs last month and I didn’t expect it but I had fun doing the wedding cord! I love how it turned out!

Blue and green wedding cord..

The crystal beads and letter initials were purchased from the Philippines (thank you Pine Rose haha) on a whim since I didn’t know exactly what beads I wanted to buy and how I wanted the cord too look like! When I got back here in Singapore, I realized that the beads lacked variety so I purchased additional czech glass beads, round acrylic gold  accents and gold plated rose connector from Beadspage.com

Labor of love 'to!

I’ve also finished around 15 pcs wedding wands and I need to make around 10 more in blue color. I also plan to make banner wands with the words congratulations, yay, etc since our chuch doesn’t allow confetti/petal throws.

Lastly, I wanted two of our flower girls to carry a “here comes the bride” sign just before I walk down aisle so I created one! I wanted heart shaped chalkboards but I couldn’t find cheap chalkboards (chalkboard paper and chalkboard paint are expensive as well) so I tried making it using a black construction paper and the “chalk” will be white pastel crayon and it worked perfectly!

mock up. haven't decided what "font" to use to write the words "here comes the bride"

Almost done!

I don’t have a photo of the finished banner but I’ll be posting it soon! I tied the hearts together using ribbon and I made handles at the ends using the same ribbon. I might add flowers at the handles.

We finally bought our wedding bands!

Yipee!!!

We saw a pair of wedding bands on display at a Soo Kee window prior to purchasing our wedding bands a few months ago and I immediately knew that it was the perfect pair for us!! But we didn’t want to get too excited and purchase them right away. A few days after seeing those wedding bands and I am still thinking about them! We scoured different stores in different malls and we still ended up buying those first pair that we fell in love with! It went a little over our budget but what the heck.

I'm a sucker for nice packaging!

My husbands wedding band is white and rose gold and is the same design as my ring except mine has 20 tiny .02 carat diamonds in it. Love it!

We'll be wearing these for the rest of our lives! 🙂

We didn’t want the traditional wedding band so we opted for a sort of two tone curved design to go with my engagement ring.

Can't wait to wear these everyday 🙂

The rings came with a complementary wedding cd containing cheesy love songs and a cheesy wedding ring pillow. I don’t know what to do with this cd haha but for the wedding ring pillow, I already have plans of modifying it and removing those fugly ribbons 🙂

I love the wedding ring pillow box! It's so sturdy! I'm going to keep it!

Thank you Soo Kee!

The ring pillow that badly needs a make over 🙂

We also had our rings engraved with each others names and it’s for free. Considering the price of the wedding bands, yes it should be free haha!! Super excited!!

 



It takes some getting used to

referring to him as my husband that is. I still refer to him as my boyfriend in some conversations.

Yes we are now officially mr and mrs – at least in Singapore until we file our marriage at the embassy!

It was a surreal feeling, being there, getting married to the love of your life. It was only us plus my sister and her husband as witnesses.  I reserved a VIP room at Todai Restaurant in Marina Bay Sands which they provided to us for free. When we entered the room, we were surprised and overwhelmed that they made an effort to semi-decorate the place.

I didn’t expect to feel nervous or anything but surprisingly I felt fidgety. I guess the solemnizer felt the tension and asked if we were nervous. But L was more nervous. When he started saying his vows (which our solemnizer asked us to memorize!!), his hands were cold, he was trembling and he was kinda stuttering! It’s the typical him! haha! I couldn’t help but wonder what will happen on the church wedding, he might faint?

I on the other hand was laughing maniacally! It was probably because I’m not used to hearing him deliver a well memorized speech, because he was so darn nervous, because we are not used to being formal or because I was just trying to conceal my own nervousness!

an almost chinese looking me from too much laughing

After that I recited my own vows which I felt was ok but my sister said I delivered it too fast. Oh well. For the church wedding I’d prepare water proof make-up in anticipation for the cry baby in me.

The ceremony was fast! We signed the documents, we kissed and we were pronounced husband and wife! Extreme happiness!

After that was pig-out time! I was so happy (and proud of myself haha) that I booked Todai Restaurant. I was initially thinking of doing the ROM in a fancier restaurant with three course set meal for a more formal setting but the glutton in me stopped me from doing so! I thought that if we stick with the fancier set meals, it’ll be expensive plus we won’t really have as much fun (and food) as compared to having buffet. So buffet it is! And it was the best decision I made! We love buffets and we couldn’t be any happier – getting married and then eating to our hearts content!

finally!
