I’m getting married again! I have been married for more than 5 times till date and will continue to host wedding parties for 2011. I’m kidding (in case you didn’t get my joke).
Since plunging into wedding design and planning industry, I feel like I am constantly getting married. I take every wedding as my own, except that I only do what I like, the design & decor! In Diary & Design Wedding, we work based on our strength. Lily being the more organized and expert in coordination is dealing with the administrative, while I’m having fun with the decor and set up!
Update: After almost three years of great synergy of design & planning, we decided to branch out to our own company focusing on our different strength. Please see our design works with Rosette Designs & Co
The last wedding that we did was really fun, we used green apples as the main elements. The wedding took place in Hort Park and it was a suitable fresh-rustic theme. I will blog about it with more pictures. The picture below is part of the decor which I created a “Fruit of the Holy Spirit” tag for each apple. There are 9 aspects of the fruit of the Holy Spirit in the Bible. The couple is Christian and I thought it will be appropriate for them. They really loved it!
Simple thought makes a big difference
This is the decor board. The couple wants an eco-friendly and green wedding. We used bamboo, green apples, potted plants, topiary, baby breaths for the decor. The final look was amazing! We loved it and so did the guests and host. Stay tuned for the final look!
P.S.: Since it’s the wedding season, please forgive me if I haven’t write in a while now (actually, it’s more than ‘a’ while). I have so many things to write, but couldn’t finish and post it (proven by how many Drafts post I have). I wanted to post about Intro to Wedding Decor, Eating Too Many Sashimi (it’s an allegory, by the way) and many more. Next year’s resolution is to post more DIY stuff!
It has been quite some time after our wedding, and both Hellen and I are involved in different things. But one thing my wife is really going all out for is her Diary and Design wedding planning business. As a wedding designer, I see how she takes everything absorbed from the various resources (websites, books, other people’s weddings, etc) and create wedding theme or what she call “Inspiration Boards” for her couples. To me, that is the most impressive thing that comes from her for the wedding business and she is indeed talented in what she’s doing.
Here’s a couple of her Inspiration Boards and my commentary on it:
A sophisticated bluish theme that brings winter back to sunny Singapore!
In this inspiration board, different shades of blue are used, bringing about elegance and sophistication to the wedding. It is more recommended when the wedding is meant to be more formal and classy. The wish tree that is made of glass (or even ice if possible) will be a wonderful decoration and highlight of the wedding.
Beach weddings are always unique and fresh!
Beach weddings is something that can definitely be done in Singapore, in spite of the hot weather. The sea breeze and clear sky will definitely bring with it a special experience for the guest. The key in this theme is the abundance of flowers. The selection of flora brings with it an added element of ‘freshness’ when compared to other beach weddings.
Less ‘beachy’, but still casual, and taking the sea into your wedding
How about using some seashells in your wedding? A wedding based on the sea and the shells, near the sea and casual.. definitely a wedding I hope to be a part of. Best recommended for a couple that has some romantic story related to the sun, the sand and the sea!
Here’s just a small sampling of the work my wife did (and the source of the pics are from all the wedding websites out there, credit!). Do check out the works here for their contact and wedding planning packages!
