I love planning my own wedding. I can toy around with ideas and inspiration that I see on the blog or magazines. While some girls have wedding dream when they were little, I don’t recall to have any of it. But that doesn’t stop me from wanting it to be wonderful and beautiful. Having a knack in design also adds fuel to my preparation. Early this year, my best friend, Katryn (also my Maid of Honor) and another friend, Ricadonna and I, started a wedding invitation line, called Pemberley Paperie.
Both me and Katryn share the same passion in stationery and invitation, especially American style. So this wedding allows me to channel my interest in stationeries and decoration too. I don’t find it a chore to look for venue, think about the decoration, look for THE Gown, veil and stuffs. I love it! Both my fiance and I make it a point that we will enjoy this journey together. We want to share this wonderful occasion with our loved ones and also to represent ourselves, our taste and our choices. I’m so blessed to have a wonderful supportive and fun husband-to-be. Weiqiang is as excited as I am in many ways. He is not always that excited, especially in budgeting part *haha* but he made conscious effort to stay positive. True enough, financial blessing comes time after time to add to our wedding budget.
We are in the mood to plan for our venue and decoration. When we scout for places, we are looking for the WOW factor. We always ask ourselves this, does this place or photographer wow us?. It might not wow others, but as long as it wows us, we will go for it. Inspiration moves me. Website like http://www.snippetandink.blogspot.com or http://www.weddingbee.com, http://www.theknot.com became a daily routine for me, on my spare time of course… Sometimes I need to step aside from it, but I quickly turn to my DIY Wedding book I bought from one of my favorite shop, Woodwould@Cathay, Dhoby Ghaut.
Wedding is once a a lifetime so I want to enjoy every part of it!
