After some deliberation, The Fiancé and I
have decided NOT to hire a Wedding Planner.
For one, it costs a lot of money. Second, it really wouldn't be all that worth the money we put in cos most of the planning has already been done. We already know exactly which vendors we wanna use and what we wanna do. So technically, all we need now is somebody to just coordinate things and help us execute our plans on the real day. And...
That's what friends are for! HAHAHA.
Bridesmaids, best men and good friends,
we're counting on you!
Thing is... not having a Wedding Planner also kinda means doing all the preliminary organising and running around ourselves. Like calling and booking every one of our selected vendors – hotel, photographers, videographers, florists, make-up artists, etc – and preparing every backstage prop we had in mind (e.g. door gifts, wedding stationary, backstage props, etc).
Plus, everything I've put off since we got engaged in early June has to be done like NOW NOW NOW before it's too late to actually chup the people we want to use. (Semangat ke-kiasu-an!!) Sure, the hotel booking has been made. But there are still lots of tiny little yet significant details for me to iron out with the hotel guys. Like floral arrangements and banquet hall deco. Cos I'm a girl.
And cos thing like that like,
so totally make a difference.
I swear The Fiancé agrees that they set the mood.
He told me that himself when I was still in Australia!
You think and see? You spend thousands hiring a kick-ass photographer but your location looks like crap, your pictures will also surely come out looking like crap, right? Right. You know I'm right. Yup, I'm right.
But I digress. The point is...
all that DIY has been keeping me busy.

VERY BUSY, as you can see.
But hey, at least progress is being made daily. So, that makes it all good and all worth it. =) More and more addresses are coming in. Meaning, slowly but surely, more and more Save The Date cards are being sent out. Phew. Better late than never. But whatever the case, I think the super-duper-est, most-ter-paling-amat-sekali-ultimate, luminous-yellow-shocking-pink, glow-in-the-dark highlight of my week is that...
WE FINALLY CONFIRMED
OUR WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER!
*cartwheels all around*
One down... and about a zillion more
things to go. Whoopie. -_-'''
