So, first of all, Both of us has prepared important thing to ensure our big day will going smooth.. Guess what??? Yaa... Ka ching x2!! Without money, we cant do much things right? We hv a lil saving in ASB but i dont think it can cover up everything. So, we were thinking to make personal loan then.
Tips No.1: make sure you have enough money $$$$$. Start saving!
Long distance relationship limit our personal time. So, we solve it with 'taking holiday by turn'.. Ill apply annual leave and drive down to his hometown & so do him. We will have time to sit and discuss for preparation and all the expenses. What have to in and out of the budget list . Discuss bout to do list, what 'very important and not important'. This is to ensure everything is in control. I also download TO Do List and budget listing from the internet as a references.
Tips No.2: Write down/type/download all To Do List and Budget Listing to ease your discussion with partner. Photostat/print the listing& give a copy to your partner too. This will reduce your stress on what to do!
Every women dream of using a pretty dress on her wedding-as for me too. As we walk at The Springs mall in Kuching.. We hv been 'caught' by a salesgirl. Its a wedding fair. Actually, we still searching on suitable bridal shop. But, that salesgirl really hv charms n magics i guess. Hahaha! They tackle my heart and we sign a deal with one of the famous bridal shop in town -Touch Wedding Studio. Cant regret anything now.. Although i love creative work from Micklong Studio..its too late now. Cant cancel coz we hv put some deposit with Touch Wedding Studio.
Tips No.3: Think wisely girls. Not because of a sweet talk & sweet promises. Make sure the bridal shop giving the BEST offer packages to you! Maybe can collect and revise all the brochures before sign in with any bridal.
We have discuss on reception venue. We try not involve and bother our families & friends with all the cooking trouble on our big day. We want everyone enjoying the moments. So, we decide to have everyone enjoy the day at hotel/ restaurant. We went to one and only hotel in Sri Aman -Seri Simanggang Hotel to have a look and discuss with their sales executive, Ms Betricia Liba. Thanks goodness. The ballroom is very suitable and easily can fit 40 round table. I am very satisfied with the venue. After all i have no other choices. Or else we will have to do wedding reception at Kuching. But to me, its not fair because the Solemnization & traditional Purut' ceremony will take place at Kuching. We want a fair and square win-win situation where both of the families satisfied. I am waiting for the latest wedding packages as told by Ms.Betricia. Hope they give us a special rates! Finger cross.....
Tips No.4: If you have a choices of reception venue, try to get all the packages and compare. As for our cases, theres no other venue to choose for in a small town like Sri Aman -take it or leave it.
So, how is your preparation then??
