Wedding Gowns

Am blogging this at the Starbucks in Narita Airport while waiting for my flight to Honolulu :-) Discovered that I actually had some shots on my digicam so here are some photos of the wedding gown and evening gown that I wore on last Sunday.

Both had fairly long trains which were a bit troublesome because people kept stepping on them inadvertently, especially during the dinner banquet when we went around the tables to take photos with each table. But the flowing trains, especially the wedding gown which cascades down in frills, looked lovely in the photos so I didn't mind at all. My sister-in-law was less lucky when she got married last year and her train ripped after a friend stepped on it!

The two gowns are different from those that I wore for the pre-wedding photo shoot as I decided that the ones that I had picked for the pre-wedding photo shoot weren't really my dream gowns. Fortunately, the bridal studio was willing to let me select another two gowns in early March, which were then altered to fit me.

The back of the wedding gown.

The bridal studio only provided very simple ribbon corsages for the bridesmaids so I decided to order small bouquets of hydrangeas with baby's breath and forget-me-nots for my four bridesmaids who were wearing purple dresses.

I got these from the Japanese florist, Shiki, at Level B1 of Takashimaya for only S$23 each :-) Hydrangeas don't last very long though and some started to wilt by nightfall.



The "angpao" (red packet) box provided by Intercontinental Hotel where we held our wedding dinner.
