While Hellen links a lot of wedding-inspired websites and blogs in her posts, quite a few websites link to ours as well. In the course of looking through those websites, there are several cool sites out there that I believed will interest and inspire the BTB and GTB for the preparation of their wedding. I will like to share some of the interesting and quirky ones, so that YOU can be inspired and believed that the perfect dream wedding that you want is absolutely within your reach.
1. DIY Wedding | Craftgossip
Craftgossip is a wonderful network of sites that touches on different topics. DIY wedding is one of the newer sections and the sharing ranges from event decoration, invitation, cake toppers (my favourite!), table settings, guest books and wedding accessories. Very cool and in a way, quite minimalist as well. Highly recommended to check out!
2. The Urban Bride
This site is manned by a team of cool ‘urban’ ladies (well, seriously, there isn’t a lot of ‘rural’ gals in Singapore right?), showcasing cool, unconventional wedding, for gals that loved the ‘Sex and the City’ lifestyle. The only downside of this site is that, it has not been really updated for a few months… maybe it has been relocated?
Rather than a regular blog, this is more of a pin board for the entire internet community. See what you like from anywhere online and pin the picture and link on the wall! As simple as that, you can share your love out there. When you just need some inspiration, you can go there and check out the random stuff pinned. Hellen’s dollies envelopes are pinned!
And finally something that has nothing to do with wedding whatsoever…
4. Do Nothing for 2 Minutes
Are you panicking and your mind going all over the place with wedding preparation? Maybe you just need to calm down in this fast-paced world and the lead-up to the most important day of your life. Take 2 minutes of your life to take a deep breath and enjoy a moment of solitude and calm. One of the greatest joy in life is to enjoy doing nothing, don’t you think so?
I haven’t gotten enough of tiffany blue, although last year my world was painted with this shade! This color has become ubiquitous, we did a few weddings with this tone. Personally I always love this green-blue combination. It’s hard to pinpoint what exactly is this shade, but it’s the ambiguity that entices me. I chose tiffany blue-coral-white for my outdoor wedding and black-white-tiffany blue for my indoor. That alone was enough to proclaim my love for tiffany blue. You can call them Robin’s eggs blue, Turquoise, Teal, etc.
Honestly, I wasn’t aware about the trend of Tiffany Blue when I chose the color. I just like this particular color and Breakfast at Tiffany’s is my inspiration. I believe in personal taste rather than trend, so even this color was hot last year, doesn’t mean it’s outdated. Your wedding will last more than a season, so you choose whatever color you like!
Allow me to parade our blue collection from last year. D&D flew to Medan few times last year to plan weddings there. Mind you these are large scale of events with hundred of people, nearly a thousand. Hard to imagine it happening in tiny Singapore, but it did happened. (Thank God for small-intimate wedding *wink*)

Sweet Dream at Goodwood Park Hotel
Early part of this year, we did a wedding design and decor (CHAPTER FIVE) in Aloha Changi Chalet. The couple is very sweet to each other while the bride is very passionate about her wedding theme. They already engaged a wedding coordinator so we came in as their decorator. It’s always good to have a professional coordinator to handle your wedding, no matter how small the affair is.
The inspiration for this wedding is the whimsical color theme (pink, yellow and blue) and the cheerful gerberas. Jerelyn (the bride) loves gerberas so muc, she intended to grow her own! It’s rather hard to do it in Singapore, so we gave her heart’s desire on her wedding day.
We love when a wedding carries consistent theme beautifully! Just note on the wedding at the seaside, the wind can be hazardous! We hung streamers on the tentage ceiling, but it kept blowing away. Turns out the strong wind gave a surprise dynamic angle to the streamers which we didn’t expect. The weather was so good, despite of the raining season in January.
Congrats to Jerelyn & Adrian for such a beautiful wedding and marriage.
Diary & Design Wedding recently did a few weddings for our Indonesian couples in Medan. As you might already know from my previous post, wedding in Indonesian culture holds a significant value for both families. It’s a family affair, literally. Most of the guests will come from both sides of the family. So don’t be surprised if the number of guests invited can be up to four digit.
The wedding is fairly dominated by red color, which symbolize good luck and happiness. When you coupled it with neutral color like white and gold, it stands out better. When you choose a strong color such as red, purple, make sure the venue has similar or at least not a clashing color. Examine your venue before you decide on the color scheme!
We love how the carpet enhanced our color theme even more. But the wall didn’t go well with the theme so we decided to make it disappear! Draping is a good way to eliminate unsuitable wall. But might not be the cheapest alternative, though.

Last December we did a special wedding in Hort Park. The couple wants an eco-friendly wedding, while still maintaining the aesthetic of the wedding. The venue was challenging as they can only use the Multi Purpose Hall (MPH) despite of having it in Hort Park. They booked the beautiful Lawn in front of MPH, only to discover we couldn’t use it unless we cover the grass.
Nevertheless we managed to put a lovely eco-friendly wedding, using green apples, baby breaths and rustic potted plants. Since the couple are Christian, I designed special tags containing 9 fruits of the Holy Spirit, pinned 0n the apples. Lovelies!
The key to conquer such bare and raw venue is to be consistent with the design and add special details.

We used bamboos covered with wedding ferns and baby breaths on the stage
