There’s still a few more vendors undone.
1. Gubahan – Bonito by Bob
Price range: S$200 onwards
I love Bob’s designs. It’s unique. I realise is that he will try to cater to what you want. I know he is putting his dulang service on hold for 2015 but don’t worry Ola Lola is equally good and you never know…maybe Bob might resume back in 2016.
Some of my favourite designs.
I also booked Bob’s mini dais.
Pretty nikah dais = pretty nikah photos
2. Bridal – Ishq by Nora Zee
Price range: S$800 onwards
Nora Zee is a talented MUA. The reason why I chose her is because of her make-up skills and her exquisite dresses. I’m sure most of us want to look gorgeous but still natural looking. No one likes thick make-up and have dramatic eye make-up.
There were a few hiccup with Nora just because I didn’t read the T&Cs properly. REMEMBER GIRLS, READ YOUR T&Cs PROPERLY AND ASK AS MUCH QUESTION AS YOU POSSIBLY CAN.
Nora is strict with her T&Cs and it kinda hurt me a little. This were some of the T&Cs that I didn’t read properly:
1. No downgrading of package (I wanted to downgrade it at first cos I customise my own baju nikah)
2. No refund (I wanted to refund cos I was planning to move my wedding date but Nora and her other MUA Ilah Noorshyeight wasn’t free on that date) *sob*
Nora’s service recovery was to provide me another MUA and a free make-up trial. Of course I was a little upset that they couldn’t doll me up but I’m sure Nora has the best MUA and can be equally good as she is. I recently saw her post with new MUAs taking up professional make-up course and they’re good.
Here’s some of the pictures. Make up by Nora herself.
Here’s Ilah Noorshyeight work.
Some of her dresses she posted on FB.
3. Musician – Nobat Kota Singa
I didn’t think the music part was important but then realised that it is kinda. I checked Sri Mahligai but sadly they’re full. In fact, they’re almost full all the way til 2016. UNBELIEVABLE. You can check their schedule in their website to find out more.
Here’s my favourite song “Lancang Kuning” by Sri Mahligai.
And then I went to a wedding and enquired with Munir Band Wedding. In the end, I didn’t book them cos my sister previously use them for her wedding.
I then settled with Nobat Kota Singa, met Arman and Suryana. Arman was very easy going. They took feedback from us pretty well and was open to any suggestion. Contacting Arman was also a breeze. I sometimes had problems with other vendors when trying to contact them, they will take days to reply me back. To me, when a vendor takes a long time to reply, what makes you think they have the sense of urgency if anything happens on the wedding day. Am I right?
Here’s one of their piece.
4. Deco – Vynella Weddings
I initially booked Comel Molek as my deco. I met uncle Lan to find out more about their deco services. The consultation took about an hour. Uncle Lan was well-prepared to answer all my queries and he provided us more information about the do’s and don’ts. We felt secure and comfortable around him. We knew we were in good hands. However, since tiffany chairs is an in-thing, I’ve been googling a lot about it. Usually it will cost about $7 per chair and if there is any promo you can get it at $5 per chair. I then came across Vynella Weddings looking at their tiffany chairs but then I realised that they had a good promo. They just started on their deco services so i know not everyone thinks it’s a good idea. It all takes risk but we gotta be prepared before we trust one.
So I met Ella the founder together with her partner. They gave us a brief details on what they foresee their deco to look like. It’s exactly what I had in mind. I won’t talk so much about how it’s gonna look like but it’s an awesome promo and on top of that, it comes with tiffany chairs so I didn’t wanna miss it. They’re gonna have a showcase soon this coming Feb to show us how the set-up is gonna look like. So that’s pretty good.
I had all my questions set for Ella and she answered it all. Sometimes, we gotta give new companies a chance. Not everyone is like Enchanted weddings if you girls ever heard of it. In my invoice, I even asked her to state her I/C number and full name just in case and she did that too.
Here’s how the promo is but I’m not sure if they’re still extending. You can enquire with Ella.
My catering is sponsored by my mum and she was reluctant to talk to us about which caterer she’s gonna use. One thing I know is that she’s gonna ask the caterer to exchange the deco to a stage for my pelamin cos the package includes the deco.
Mum wants my wedding to be at the void deck cos she wants easy access and probably variety too cos my sister got married at the CC. I have another sister, I predict she might have to marry at a different location maybe a grand one since she’s the last child. Good luck sis. Haha. I’m like the leftover. Use to it so it’s ok.
5. Henna – Syraskins
Price range: S$180 onwards
I’ve nothing much to say. She’s damn good. Nuff said.
Those note settle yet.
