Wedding Dinner 15 Sep 2013

Wedding Dinner 15 Sep 2013

Warning: Be prepared to be bombarded with SUPER LOADS of PHOTOs!

After all the rush here rush there..... My elder bro drove us to Grand Copthorne Waterfront hotel around 3pm. So we had a short bath, then went to check out with the coordinator.
Was so worried, cos my CD couldn't be played!!!

But lucky I brought my laptop.

Childhood montage Cd was ok. Then after which, have to use my lappy for the grand march in.
Then 2nd march in, have to use my lappy for the morning highlights too!! Cos, the videographer CD cant work on their DVD player too. oh man... So I have to switch morning highlights video... then quickly click song on my lappy for 2nd march in.... And I'm definitely leaving all these to my little bro... to manage...
Of cos still feeling nervous, afraid that it might cock up....
But it went smoothly... so happy and relieved!!!

So, the time plan as follow....

Rehearsal / Briefing with Emcee and coordinator

Cocktail reception & Arrival of guests

Childhood Montage
Grand entrance
Cake Cutting

Bride to change outfit

Wedding Highlight video
Champagne pouring
Thank you speech
Table to table toasting and photography


The room which claim to be bridal suite... was pretty small...
Wonder could it be due to our number of tables lesser.... give us a smaller room...

Like studio apartment....
But its quite comfy la... toilet quite big...
There's washing machine and dryer.... mini living room....

Was too busy... didn't take much photo of the room... arghhh..
