My Best Friend's Wedding (part II)

I had blogged about helping to do the wedding invites for my best friend Elaine's wedding here. These are some pictures from the wedding to share. (above) Elaine and her then fiance (Chee) dashing around Singapore to run errands the day before the wedding.
(above) These were some corsages I made from lace and ribbons for the wedding party. As you can see, the colour theme of the wedding was black and cream which we carried through all the decor.
(above) Reception table which I helped decorate. The birdcage with message written on tags was an idea I came up with just the day before when the bride realised she didn't have a wedding book for her guest to write their well wishes on. Representing a new home for the newly weds, the birdcage also doubled up as a centre-piece on the reception table. Each guest could write their messages on as many tags as they liked to attach onto the cage which was painted a goth black.
(above) Wedding programs. The wedding program was 16 pages long and we compiled everything into a mini booklet held together by a black grosgrain ribbon and handmade paper embossed with the couple's initials on the front cover.

(Above) Wedding favours. And for wedding favours, we had jars filled to the brim with candy that guests could dig their hands into. Sadly, my 2 year old had to be bribed with one of these before she agreed to walk down the aisle as the flower girl. Here is a pic of her leading the wedding entourage with a chuppa chup sticking out of her mouth. The sugar rush put her on high the entire wedding service.

Suling is the best designer any girl could dream of for her wedding. She knows what a bride wants and pulls all these amazing ideas out of her hat and works magic with anything that is put in her hands.

The beautiful corsages were literally strips of common lace and ribbons until she made them bloom. Everyone loved the reception area and the birdcage and tag idea was an instant hit!

Thank you dear for creating such a beautiful memory for us to hold.

Xoxo bride :p
