13178780_10156898072390181_6943844902624305114_n

2 more days to go!!!!

Everyone’s been asking me how’s the wedding preps and people generally show me the ‘stunned’ face when they see me so carefree
So what’s my secret?

NO SECRET
Pure efficiency and Planning makes the cut!
It also helps greatly when Mr R is as good as me when it comes to organizational skills!

Thank you all for your concern (though you know that there’s nothing I can’t do)
So I’m gonna run you through the actual wedding preps I did since January

#1 Location: W Hotel Sentosa Cove

Started off rough on this one!
A privatised blogpost was released in mid Jan when the hotel communication chain had a major breakdown
Nobody wants to listen to me
All I wanted was the view the suite and everyone who called me denied the viewing and to make things worse, upsold me through the phone with a wedding banquet package
& the rest is history

Service recovery was awesome
Rissa Williams, Director of Rooms who recently made headlines with allsingaporestuff.com was really sincere and did not come across as the kind of person she was described in the article
She’d been the main contact person for our suite booking so far and introduced the F&B Manager Martin to coordinate our wedding party at WooBar

It’s really simple – Weekend staycation at the WOW Suite and Party all night long with free flow of alcohol at the bar
How FUN!!!

#2 Dress

aijek-aw15-campaign-2261

Bought off the rack from local designer Danelle Woo for Aijek (See Aijek.com)
of course I won’t look as hot given the recent weight gain
– right, not a normal bride… we’ve still been eating very normally! –

#3 Wedding Gown

#4 One Couple Photo

Originally, the plan was to just head over to Santorini for our honeymoon + photoshoot
Then we realised that there’s just something missing when there isn’t the iconic couple shot at the wedding party and here’s what we decided to do:
1 hour of fun Photoshoot at http://www.honeyzpainthouse.com

Contact Juliana Chong for her bright ideas on how you can spice up your shoot!
Book her studio and photographer at super reasonable rates~

#5 Printing the Couple Standee

@GlitzyFingers at People’s Park Centre
Seriously, when I googled for People’s Park Centre, search results show you images and locations of the People’s Park Complex
I’m intrigued by the internet’s mistake!

Other than that, I’m like SUPER PLEASED with Belle’s creation!
She’s detailed and she bothers about my comfort – she goes an extra mile to check if me and my nails are alright all the time
I appreciate such service really!
Look for Belle at 8100 7353

#10 Hair Color with Show Image

Read: http://melva.sg/dip-dye-hair-color-review-with-show-image-eunos/

I’m actually going to get my hair done later today, so no photos yet
but you can of course track me @Melvasg

#11 Groom’s Suits

suitsupply_shameless-car

All 3 suits Mr R has for the wedding are from SuitSupply!
YAY! They’re in Singapore!
Located at Ion Orchard Level 3

Get friendly Uncle Robert for alterations! He’s superb!
The sales staff on the floor are falling a bit slack on their service and they seem to treat the boutique like their playground instead of a formal workplace
Well, different customers have different level of tolerance
I definitely do not have tolerance for monkeys

#12 Facial @ Porcelain Face Spa

Porcelain-logo

I started off with Porcelain Face Spa earlier this year in January
The treatments were intensive and I was there every 10 days for a good 2 months before staggering the visits on a monthly basis
I LOVE how Happy their therapists are and this is the perfect example where the right attitude at work shines through to the customer
My therapist Stella makes me feel real happy to head down for a facial, knowing that she will take good care of my skin and always follows up on how my complexion is doing even during periods where there’s no facials scheduled

I’ve just done my Quinessential (extraction) and Cryotherapy facial and I’m ready to GLOW!

Porcelain Face Spa:Located at 15 Cantonment Road and Orchard Gateway #03-13

#13 Daily Collagen Drink

IMG_7845

Love this candid shot taken by Mr R!
My #Instagramhusband hard at work!
I took a big gulp and did not expect the sour berries in the BioCode Brightening Beverage =p
I take a bottle of Biocode every night before bedtime in the hope to maintain/increase collagen levels in my skin and to boost radiance!

IMG_7839

The Biocode Whitening Beauty Collagen drink has 3 Patented Ingredients and 3 Superfood Berries: Acai Berry, Cranberry, Blueberry
1. Highly purified Ellagic acid extracted from pomegranate extract
2. Highly purified glutathione extracted from yeast
3. MangoSelect® ( Mangosteen extract)

#14 Slim Cera

While watching tv, I pushed 3 pumps of the Slim Cera Beauty Ceramic Lotion and pat it all over my face

Thereafter, start rolling!
I spend about 15 minutes in total gliding Slim Cera Face Roller all over

See the visible difference here with just one minute of rolling:

#15 Wedding Invite

E-invites are popular these days isn’t it?
I’m just ahead of the trend, I WHATSAPP invited all my guests!
