With 25 more days to go, it seems the days are passing fast. So fast that it seems a little scary.
"How's preparations?" is a common question we have been asked recently. I don't really know how to answer this question...
The big items for our wedding are more or less ready but there are still many minor details to look into, towards the smooth flow of the day's programme and to ensure the comfort and convenience of all our guests.
We've just got the keys from the contractor, after the changing of locks and minor touch-ups. We'll be cleaning up the house this National Day holiday and start shifting from next week. We'll be shifting gradually, bringing some stuff every time we visit. I'm excited by the whole process of getting the house ready. I enjoy going to the supermarket, getting the everyday household items and buying groceries. It's a habit I've built since my Hong Kong-China days and I do not mind continuing it now. =P We'll be getting the pails and broom and mop for the house clean-up, the very thing a neat little house will need.
We'll be going to the bridal shop again this Sunday to get the father's jacket and maybe bridesmaid dresses (if they are in good condition).
The hotel and catering for reception is confirmed, but we'll be upping the quantity for the reception catering as the numbers are more than expected initially. It's our once-in-a-lifetime event and we wish that all our friends and relatives will be able to join us. However, with the space constraint, it is just impossible. It is so difficult to draw the line, who to invite and who not to... It will be good if we can do something along the line of Fandi Ahmad's wedding way way back. Just pitch a big tent in the middle of a big field and invite all to the event. Haha! =)
