I can heave a sigh of relief now that my wedding is finally over. For overseas friends, getting married in Singapore context and preparing for the wedding is no mean feat. Now some ppl are calling me Mrs Tey or Mrs Tey-Oh (sounds like local tea). Need some time to get used to it. 🙂
Let us start with the traditional bride fetching and tea ceremony during the daytime. 🙂 The final edited photos will still need some time so let’s make do with whatever I have; kindly taken from my friends and relatives.
I had no qualms sleeping at 10pm the day before as I was tired and I fall asleep easily. My hubby was amused that I’m able to KO so fast as usually couples will lose sleep the night before the big day. Haha.
I have purchased a clean set of white bedsheet and gotten the “happiness” signage ready beforehand. Something neat and simple for phototaking.
My makeup artist came before 8am, before the stipulated time. Setup was done quickly and no time wasted. I’ve gotten bridal pearl veil few weeks on TaoBao before the actual day as I’ve always wanted this type of veil. And the quality of the veil was really good but it’s heavy on me.
Depending on the dialect group, some brides need to wake up at 2am so that their makeup and hairdo can be ready before sunrise. I’m glad I almost had my full 8 hours of sleep. 🙂
I engaged @mibeleung_makeup via IG and she’s really a talented and patient MUA. I opted for a simple braided bun for morning look so that it will fit well with the 2 gowns I’m gonna wear in the day.
Really love the natural and pretty hairdo! For my gelish manicure, I opted for a simple French manicure design with touches of lace design and crystals.
Of course we needed to take photo with Romeo the cat – a community cat that I always play with Everyday. The photographer took lots of photos of Romeo while it was posing gracefully. 🐱
So after hubby fetched me, we started tea Ceremony at his place. I brought a change of gown that I’ve gotten from @bettysloft at Far East Plaza. So glad that the pearl veil matches both gowns.
Tea ceremony took quite some time as Hubby has a lot of relatives! And then it’s back to my home to greet the elderly. By the time we fed each other the dessert (Tang Yuan), we were both famished and eating it heartily.
