            Something went wrong with my previous post, and at the end only the feature image showed up. So i’m going do a repost of my party decorations!

DIY: Wow Multi-colored Leopard Prints Bridal Nails

The love for leopard prints made me decide that I wanted this design for my wedding day in April 2012. I didn’t do it DIY at that time, as my nails were too short so I had my nails extended using LED cured gel and had the pattern painted on by my manicurist. It’s definitely … Continue reading

DIY: TLW originals: Rings in a glass.

I’ve written on the floral inspirations I had gathered on my great friend WR’s wedding here. And this is the ring holder that I have conceptualized for her. I love that I had a chance to create a lasting memory on this special day. The lovely couple met at a drinking hole, got to know … Continue reading

Inspiration: Blue Bridal Shoes

I’d picked up a peacock blue mermaid gown as my evening gown. It has a slight tinge of green in it as well, so I’m torn about matching with black or blue shoes.

I can’t remember when was the first time I saw the nails done by this nail artist. I just remember wow they look really girly & romantic! These are acrylic or gel extensions from the real nails that you have. Then the crystals are added on and the floral patterns are molded on using acrylic … Continue reading

Inspiration: Hair Accessories

What completes an outfit? Accessories of course. For weddings, the hair pieces you choose could put the final touches to your entire look. Naturally, during the process of selecting the right gown, I also looked out for good hair pieces. Sometimes, the make up artist will provide some accessories for your selection, but I didn’t … Continue reading

Chronicle 006: Solemnization on the same day or separate day?

During the preparation of the wedding, I find that even the closest couples will quarrel. There are so so so so many details to agree on, to execute and finalize. One subject of contention was whether we should have our solemnization (aka ROM) on the same day as our wedding. After speaking to the photographers, … Continue reading

Chronicle 005: Photographers

With the previous experience, I sat down behind my computer (feeling safe), and researched through forums, photographer’s websites and going through their portfolio. Note: Take a pinch of salt from the feedback given on forums. The stories are almost all one-sided. Pictures speak a thousands words. So make a list of the ones that speak … Continue reading
