If there’s any reason why I didn’t post this yesterday, it’s because I was running, talking, ushering, getting told, getting ordered, getting called, getting scolded, getting emotional, getting happy, getting loud, and getting things done.
In the midst of all the fun and tears, I got so many photos and videos that I’ll share with you in a minute. Basically, get ready for a tsunami of pictures and captions. RED-dyyy, GO!
So, once upon a time, there was purrday and lovelay bridee~
who needed some TLC.
and a bunch of guys felt that such a lovely bride should be paired with their leader! The bridesmaids knew of this idea of theirs, and proceeded to hatch a plan…
Did we mention that it was quite fun to hatch such a diabolical plan?
At 9.25am, the groom and his band of groomsmen made their punctual yet grand entrance.
They only had one goal: To enter and whisk the bride away!
But there was only one problem. The bridesmaids wouldn’t let them through the gate. So they had to offer 6 bouquets of flowers to show their sincerity to the bride.
With reluctant nods of approval, the gate was opened, and the crackers were lit!
signifying THE BEGINNING OF THE WEDDING GAMES! WHERE THE ODDS ARE NEVER IN YOUR FAVOUUR MUAHAHHA..*coughs*
and so we had various games.
things only got harder
They had to do 5 cute yoga poses. This must have been the human centipede version.
We made him read the promises in english and chinese. Look at the sweat on his forehead…and look at the ‘sweat’ on her forehead. she must be thinking *faster la aiyo, want to see the bride mou????*
After all the fun (for us), they had proven that he is indeed, a perfect match for the bride, my sister.
and they enjoyed each other’s presence~
The bridesmaids had a last picture with her because there was no other way to make her stay.
and we had the tea ceremony. Which, I don’t have any pictures of, since I WAS THE DAI KUM JIE (大妗姐). Then fast forward about a few hours. We were at Renaissance Hotel.
Where there was a grand dinner awaiting all the guest. But the most important event was yet to come. The bride and groom waited outside the ballroom, while I continued to stalk them.
When everyone stood up, the music played. and the doors opened.
aaahhh love is in the airrr!
we got the professional chinese orchestra members to come and play some music..bringing us back to the olden days, where marriage was also as happy for the ancestors as it is for us.
and alllll these beautiful ladies helped at the reception table! Kudos to all! can you spot me with my sleepy eyes. In between this and the last photo, there were loads of speeches, kids who don’t know better, running, and talking, being polite, bowing, greetin guest and the whole works of a wedding.
And the bride and groom retired to their suite, where the rested happily ever after~
