My Dream Wedding

Yes, Alvin and I will be tying the knot. I'm blessed to have a caring and understanding man to be my husband. Growing up, my parents were the dearest people to me (they still are). They love me and my sister more than anything in the world. Without them, I wouldn't be who I am today. They are truly the wind beneath our wings. It's very important that they approve of all the choices I make in life. Knowing I'll be entering this new phase of life with their blessing, I am forever grateful.

All brides agree that planning for a wedding can be overwhelming but also fun at the same time. I used to think that it wouldn't be difficult if all I want is to keep it simple. After picking up several issues of Brides magazine, thing has changed. Now, everything from the wedding favor to the bridal bouquet seems like the most important thing to me. There are simply too many irresistable choices. I'm skeptical when people say that you can plan a dream wedding without blowing the budget. I'm already blowing mine. Thankfully, I can always turn to my sister for advice. 

Some details on our wedding:
We will be having a simple civil ceremony in Italy while our Chinese traditional (tea) ceremony and reception dinner will be held in Kuala Lumpur. Carla, our Italian wedding planner is such a doll. She has been checking with me constantly to see if we have decided on the ceremony date. She has confirmed the town hall in Florence for the ceremony. She's also working on documents like Nulla Osta for us to be legally married in Italy. Here's the interesting part, she also found me a hair and make-up artist who has done countless fashion runway shows in Italy. Yes, she costs a bomb but I can only hope that she will work her magic to transform me into a runway model for the wedding portraits. A bride can always dream, can't she?

There are just so much to be done but I'm not complaining. But...but...can you believe peonies are not available for winter wedding in February? Note to self: Irene, they are just flowers. Just a hand bouquet. Not the end of the world. No reason for drama overload. Can someone please pass me some Kleenex?

More wedding content on the planning process soon. *Weak Smile*
