I came home today to a "Wedding planning for Dummies" book on the table. I turn around and yell out in horror.. "EErr... MOMmmm......??"
Why did you get this? I do wedding cakes; that's Delectable.. we don't do planning. She nods and chuckles. "You should be needing it soon.... right?..."
...this was me = !!!!!
...wow.. mom's really got some tact with dropping hints. damn.. Haha
I don't have any intention of tying the knot in the next DECADE or so.. but of course; things like these would naturally cross my mind now that I'm 25; and my friends and cousins are all setting up families and sending out save the date invites. ... I almost fear thinking of myself being the last one standing. Haha
From the industry I work in; I scan through countless magazines and printed material and blogs about weddings; generally looking for trends and keeping myself updated specifically. Now what we've mostly got are resources online which share valuable information and contacts.
One of my favourite new haunts happen to be Wedding Guide Asia. It is a bridal portal run by the beautiful and incredibly charming Stephanie Chai. She's just mindblowingly inspiring; this pretty lady has got it all. If you haven’t heard of Stephanie Chai, she’s a top model and TV host here in Malaysia. She had the idea of starting up a bridal portal after she became maid of honour for a friend of hers.. and found that there was a need for a web portal like this!
After having a coffee or two with Stephanie; Delectable now has a directory page listing in the Little White Book and we’re looking forward to having our cakes featured on Wedding Guide Asia soon too!
If you're going to be married soon; or if you've got plans.. it's a good idea to check them out. I just go on to browse for fun; and for work... I suppose... till one day my prince charming comes along; and I need to actually put it to full use. *dreamy grin*
