  1. No one is raging on that Audreys is expensive. It's not expensive, just not cheap. You can find cheaper stones with a little effort. However, if you rather not go through the trouble, then buy from Audreys. I suggest going to their brick and mortar store ... where you can haggle for a discount. (Always haggle for a discount. There is always room to go down from a listed price.) If you can wait, sales and fairs are the way to go. A friend of mine got his 0.5 G VS2 triple-ex, H&A for around RM4,600 this April from the Wah Chan fair. The WG setting was around RM700 (?) (not too sure about this, but definitely lower then RM1000). The links you have are not current. The promotion period is stated on both JPGs. Diamond prices went up around 30% ... end of March 2011, I think ........ due to a wage hike in India where most diamonds are cut.
  2. I've gotten diamonds that are cheaper then Audreys. I would give some tips but I suspect that you are from Audreys who is here promoting the site.
  3. Wah! I didn't know that chinese tea is not served. I don't remember seeing it mentioned in the brochure! Must have missed it... Regarding florist, I also have not surveyed as my mom is now thinking maybe no need to do anything in Taiping.. waiting for her to make up her mind!

  5. I am actually very glad that the forum admins have been very vigilant to try and cut down on spam and unethical behavior in Malaysia Brides but I just have one comment about taking away the PM. Because the PM feature has been taken away, when we want to request information, we have to put down our email addresses so that the original poster can contact us with the information. This will allow the illegal vendor to mass email spam us and worse, our email addresses will be harvested as a target for even more spam outside this forum. Just a comment ya? No offense meant.
  6. Nope. After I read all the HORROR STORIES about bridal studio, I decided to hire my own photographer and MTM my own wedding dress. Oh glad to hear that, so did you sign up at the end?
  7. No worries Amanda! Good to hear that you have found a photographer! I am not too sure about the Chinese calendar but I heard it is normally out in August! :)
  8. Here are some contacts that I inquired: Remy Ngan remyngan@yahoo.com http://www.facebook.com/pages/mimi-make-up...27091356?ref=ts Michelle Touche (She is quite good but SUPER EXPENSIVE) michelletanmakeover@yahoo.com (her website domain has expired) Cue're Cheah cuerecheah@gmail.com http://www.cuere.blog.com/ Cathy cathy@simplychic.com.my http://simply-chic.blogspot.com/ Yen Tan (normally recommended by Gene Lim when she is unavailable) yen.9makeup@yahoo.com http://www.wretch.cc/blog/yenmakeup/13281881 Hi, I'm a freelance makeup artist. You can contact me at littlefashionfrenzy@gmail.com for more information :) Btw, congratulations for your BIG day :)
  9. Ya! I also heard that it is very hard to book Gene. I am lucky that she was available on my AD. Why don't you try Remy? I heard she is also quite in demand. I also got her quote but when I heard Gene was available, I confirm her immediately! Recently finally confirmed the ROM date and now start looking for MUA.... Popular MUA eg: Gene/Angie all fully booked... sigh...
  10. Hi Jacqueline, They are very nice. Unfortunately, they are not my size. Thanks anyway.
  11. Hi Coupiku! I will be ROM-ing at the morning church ceremony in Subang, most likely.. I still have not gone to JPN to go and check out all the legal stuff. HAIZ....
  12. Hi Carmen! I am also interested about the dolls. Email me at the.wongs@live.co.uk Thanks! :)
  13. There's always the fabulous Gene Lim. http://www.genelim.com/
  14. Hi Jacqueline, What size are the Salabianca shoes? :)
  15. Hi Kai! Thanks a lot for your information. However, I think like John Poh said in your other post, since you are a photographer yourself, it's not going to go down very well with the paying vendors of this forum if you keep posting threads like this. Why don't you register as a vendor and help keep our forum up? There are always plenty of brides-to-be here looking for photographers!
  16. skye I think what you are going through is normal lor. Just try to relax and not overwork/overstress yourself. Make sure you eat more nutritious food and cut down on the bad stuff. I'm sure you'll be a great mom and have a healthy baby! choupiku How come your FH has to get a special form? I am also from Taiping but getting married in Klang Valley. Do you mind to explain a bit regarding this form?
  17. I know a BTB who got her dress MTM from White and Lacy for below RM2k. It depends on your design and what material you choose to use. Best is to just walk in and get a quotation. Most of the MTM boutiques will not pressure you to sign up immediately. I went to That Special Occasion, Neoromantic and White & Lacy before making my decision.
  18. I actually came very close to signing up with StarEast until I checked out their dresses too. Luckily I walk-in to their shop and not sign up with them during the Bridal Fair!
  19. LoveGarfield Me too! I have to plan for wedding + moving my things out of my current house + relocating to UK. BIG, BIG HEADACHE! skye Ya, I think pregnancy is a very big thing for any woman la.. and for a newlywed, it's might feel like it is too soon but children are gifts from God la. I think you won't regret to have them sooner when you are older and they are already out of the house! Just try and take it easy lor, plan it one step at a time .. after all, still got 7 months to go right? :) :) Regarding wedding plans, wow, I didn't realise weddings can be so expensive until I start to pay for everything! Impossible to get good stuff below 5 figures! I am trying to save and there, budget everything but still money going out of account so fast! Sigh! I just managed to find my MUA so schedule-wise still okay la... Now trying to find shoes to match my kwa...
  20. Hi Skye! Don't worry la.. this things will come naturally. Don't forget you are not alone... there are friends and family who will help and a loving husband by your side! :) My friend, who is pregnant in her third trimester told me that the feeling you get when your baby is moving in your womb is so amazing!! And you will have a dragon baby!! :) :) The wedding planning ... both exciting and headache-inspiring at the same time. Not to mention bank account getting smaller and smaller .. haiz.....
  21. My dress is MTM from White & Lacy in SS22. http://www.whiteandlacy.com/contact.htm Price will depend on your design. how is the price?
  22. I suggest this website that I found: http://www.brideonashoestring.com/ She has new and pre-owned dresses for sale and other bridal stuff too. I got my modern kwa from her for RM150 and it is fabulous!!!!!
  23. Yes, I know all of this. My friend's photographer also got her work stolen by another photographer who claimed her work was his own. But you just post like this, how do we know you are not someone with a grudge towards him. Sorry la, not that I want to offend you but you make an accusation like this, must show some proof la....
  24. How can we verify this? I don't see any complaints from the original vendors...
