With no décor planned 1.5 months before her wedding, you’ll be impressed at what this bride pulled off. Salute. Thanks, Bloc Memoire, for this gorgeous set.
Van Mi: “At the end of the solemnisation ceremony, after exchanging vows with Wei Kiat, I could not help but reach for a hug from my mum, and we both cried tears of joy. My father, seeing this and fighting to control his emotions, turned to my husband and said, ‘Take care of my daughter, yes?’ And my husband replied with such conviction in his voice, ‘I will, dad.’ I guess parents have different ways of expressing their feelings, as this really showed.
“A moment that gave us a panic attack was when my two year old niece, the flower girl, decided to throw a tantrum. And the three year old ring bearer initially refused to give us the rings and almost tossed them into the air. The kids definitely added an element of surprise to the day, but we love them to bits.
“Being lazy researchers, we didn’t visit a lot of potential wedding venues and we didn’t have a colour theme. As long as the flowers and décor gave out a warm, rustic and summery vibe, that was all we wanted. They went very well with the wedding invitations and thank you cards, which were designed by my friend’s sister, a design enthusiast, and printed by me.
Tips from the bride: “I must admit that I am not very Pinterest-savvy. Google is still my best friend. Try to channel your own hobbies or interests into the wedding favours. The guests will appreciate your ‘mark’ on the gifts.”
