Wedding planning!

I’ve been holding this post for a while because actually I had nothing except the date just a week ago, and now almost all the major things are confirmed!!! πŸ˜€
DATE of our wedding: 7/31/2011
Who did we pick the date? Because we met exactly 10 years ago!!! πŸ˜†
that’s how it looks like from outside, with the viewΒ of the Bund and the Huangpu River

I guess here’s where we’ll have the ceremony: in the balcony with the view of the river

I haven’t seen the place yet, that’s what I got from the website: either of these two salons


both look pretty good to me πŸ˜‰
Okay. Now rewind a little bit. About a month ago, I told my mom to start looking for the place. The problem was that Β every time she saw a new one, she likes it. It was frustrating that she changes her mind all the time, but I guess it was because she wants the best for me πŸ˜‰ So, after few false alarms, she finally decided on this one. (do you guys know Yao Ming, the basketball player? He had his wedding in this hotel too) You might think how irresponsible I am to pick where is going to be my wedding without actually going to see the place myself. You’re right, but to be honest, I’m not the wedding-kind-of-girl. I know it’s important for any girl, but I actually don’t have any memory from childhood fantasizing about my wedding. Why do I have one then? I could probably save tons of $$ by skipping it. But I am having one because I want to make my parents happy. All traditional chinese parents have the biggest wedding for their daughter. And that’s why I delegated the task to my mom. If she likes it, then I’ll like it because it makes her happy.

I’m so lucky to have a girl friend who offer to be my wedding planner. I can do research on economics, but research about which camera man to hire? Not my thing. She’s super efficient too. In just few days she got all the important things that need to be confirmed before it’s too late.

The master of ceremony: checked

The camera/video man: checked

The makeup artist: checked

Salon decorator: pending

Invitations/souvenirs: pending

Dress: pending

Am I missing something?

With my mom and my friend taking charge of the wedding planning. I will be just another guest of my wedding! πŸ˜†

Q: If you’re married, what was the most memorable moment of your wedding? If you’re not married, what do you expect the most about your wedding?
