    SO and myself are supposed to be having our ROM sometime next july but nothing has been prepared!! both of us are so occupied now. damn.
    Hi Karmadearie!
    Congrats on your forthcoming ROM! Actually, me & SO wanted a really nice ROM reception with all our close frens cos we feel that customary is really more of a parents' thing. Hence, we did put in quite alot of effort to make this a really special one. We really want to exchange vows in front of our closest friends (I didnt invite relatives, only immed, family members) so we decided to go with our heart. My customary next year will be at Raffles The Plaza. That will be a year from now!
    Your Rom is more than half a year away, that's plenty of time. Take your time to source for a venue (if its held outdoors), & your shoes, dress, bands, etc. I kind of enjoy the whole process of planning. Think im gonna miss it when im married. Hee.

      congrats to you in advance too. might need alot more help cause SO is always occupied and that leaves only me with the preparations. we started looking around for wedding bands already but we have yet to decide on which one to get. haha.

      i did mention to mum before that i don't wanna invite too many relatives cause i feel its something that i wanna share it with my close friends too. mum seems pretty fine with it. our guest list has about 40pax. is that alot? was thinking of cutting it to 30.

      by the way, did you check the so-called 'auspicious dates'?

        I think 40 pax is just abt right. I have 60 guests, all frens.
        But u might wanna see if u wanna invite only close frens, to keep the reception small & cosy. Nope, i didnt check on any auspicious dates cos my parents literally left everything to us, & SO & me are not very 'pantang' type. We chose a sunday afternoon for hi-tea cos more ppl could make it prob after church or something. For my banquet, we chose 8 Dec 2006, & only after we booked the banquet then we realised it's a super hot auspicious day for weddings. Guess we are lucky to 'chope' it early! Your SO seems very bz...Is it work commitments?

          60pax is quite alot. i told my mum to check out the auspicious dates but my mum hasn't got down to doing it yet. haha. SO is busy with work. he has work committments and hardly even has time for me. but i'm fine with it. afterall, work comes above all. will have to get down to the planning soon else it will be too rush for us and i hate rushing through stuff. by the way, you held your solemnization outdoor right? who's your JP? i have so much to learn from man. haha

            MY JP is David ***, think he's one of the more 'popular' JPs around. If u need his contact, let me know. Replace the *** with L-O-H. Dunno why whenever i type this 3 letters, it becomes 3 stars.

                    Yup, David L.O.H is really friendly and nice. He also recommends hotels for solemnization. But he always booked... so got to contact him early if you want him to be your JP. My gal fren's ROM engaged him as JP, he's humourous and helps to create "atmosphere" during the soleminzation, the hotel staff seems to like him too
