I started out calm and happy. Then I was extremely excited and happy. I’m now stressed and happy. All within the span of the last few days. The more people I talk to, the more excited and stress I am. The big day has been set for 18 October 2008. So many people can’t believe it’s actually happening! At moments, I can’t either!
Fruitcake, my matron of honour said that pigs will fly. She’s even thinking of mocking up a pig to be flown during the wedding.

18 October isn’t a lot of time considering weddings are now planned one year in advance. It’s all very scary.
I was originally looking at inviting only 100 pax. Something small, cosy and personal. But I just received word that Paul’s side wants 17 tables. That in itself is more than my original total! So looks like a lot of management to be done.
One thing’s for sure- we don’t want the wedding in a hotel or in a Chinese restaurant. We’re thinking more café or garden. Which means the total number of guests needs to be below 200.
So many friends have already all offered to help plan the wedding!
Annie Wong, owner of Annie Wong Couture is a good friend of my mum and she’s seen me grown up. She's been waiting for this day for a very long time. She’ll be sponsoring my wedding and evening gown.
Montecom Productions, whom I’ve works with for a few TVCs has offered to do the videography.
I know I want Seth from Peekaboo for my hair and As You Like It for my flowers.
So now I need to secure the venue, book the photographer, get measured for the dress, select a make up artist, try to get the sponsorship for the alcohol, shop for wedding bands, find out how to do the registry of marriage, do up the wedding invitations, do the budget, save money and so much more!
I thought I could handle it and I know I can if the wedding was for 100 people, judging from the amount of parties I’ve planned and how anal I am about them but my own wedding for a few hundred pax could be a little bit beyond my depth. I think a wedding planner is in order!
