Searching process – Wedding gown (part 3)

with 3 comments

{Lucky enough?!} that I discovered my wedding gown at a Sheung Wan wedding gown shop…

At my first sight, i gave a tick to:

1. floral Lace top – Yes

2. Bottom – Tulle Material – Yes

3. With Lace at the bottom part of the dress – Bingo!

And given all criteria matched, I immediately paid 50% deposit and was pretty excited on my 1st trial day (only had 2 hour section for the first gown trial)…


On the gown trial day, all my friends told me that another similar style (Same cutting except the lace on top is less and color is in white instetad of ivory) suits me more bcos the one i chose was a bit LONG (and the length can’t be adjusted)…..SOOOOOOO Disappointed…and bcos of this, i was very frustrated and thought about this the whole night (whether to insist on my dream one or select the one whose length is a bit shorter..)…


I did n’t insist on the dream one and go for another one…

100% of the amount was paid in order to hold the wedding gown on my big day..

Just holding a dress already require full amount settled?! I have no idea on the usual practice but to PAY as told..

I didn’t pick it at last bcos there isn’t much evening gowns in that gown shop and also i would like to have a little bit ‘lace’ on the wedding gown…

But still , the bottom part looks gorgeous and is exactly the feel i want..(D紗好靚呀!)

When will i find my wedding gown?!!

Searching process – wedding gown (part 1)

leave a comment »

Selecting my wedding gown was no doubt an uneasy task.

Here is my thinking process:

1. Buy / Rent ?

Though i like Amsale’s celine dress sooo much, it is too pricy (>HKD35k) in view of wearing only once.. so let’s go back to rent.

2. Vintage / Classic ?

I’m not crazy for vintage style (though i also think lace is super lady and elegant..), so, as long as it’s beautiful, i’m ok .

3. Straight / Mermaid / A line ?

Decided to go for A line as will make me look a bit taller and slimmer…haha..

Though I can’t own my dream wedding gown, it gave me inspiration and direction on what type of dress i want to wear on my big day…

Here is the ideal mix:

– Top : tube top with floral lace

– Bottom : soft material like organza / tulle

I managed to find 2 that is similar to what ‘s on my mind, will talk about it later….stay tuned..

Bridesmaid invitation card distribution #2

with 2 comments

Date: 25 Mar 2009

Venue: Cocoon Wedding Shop, Central, HK

Event: Accompany bridesmaid J for her gown trial

2nd bridesmaid invitation card was just distributed. J was super happy and said ‘wow…u made this…same same for me’.

Guess we’re just same type of person, wish to make our wedding memorable – not only to ourselves, but also to our dearest friends and families and wish to give a memorable event for them.

Unfortunately we’re at the gown shop and was not soooo convenient to ‘shoot’ down the joyful moment. … yet…i’ve jotted it down here 🙂
