[24 August 2013, Saturday]
Last month we had a casual bridesmaids meetup session. I just want to gather everyone together because I've been so busy with work and it's been a long time since I see the whole group together (in fact, the last time we all gathered was my birthday in October last year!)
I love parties and I absolutely love hosting and organizing one! The theme for the party was "Summer Fun" and I bought little food warmers from Giant to give it a more "professional caterer" look. I did not cook the food of course, I am not a good cook. I asked Nathaniel to help me tabao. ^_^
I made potato salad, jelly cups, sandwiches and Caesar Salad!
Tim, my sister and Wany!
Brendan's sisters Cheryl & Pamela with Tim
Joyce & Yaya with her trademark craziness
Nathaniel fluffing up the balls that everyone made
Le bf's sisters Cheryl & Pamela
Yaya & Jace
These two ladies are the main rah rah girls in the group. With their combined power & voices, it's like 10 "normal bridesmaids". They are the face of the gatecrash attack. Hahahahaha!
Wany, Jace, Yaya & Joyce!
My maid of honour!
It's my sister's first time as a bridesmaid and she's ultra excited.. mainly because it's my wedding! :) I am glad she gets along well with Le bf and his sisters. In fact she ADORES him! I think if Le bf and I quarrel in future she may side him instead! LOL!
Bride & Groom
Le bf is the most patient and loving person I've ever been with and that's the reason why I am happily & willingly marrying him!! He really puts up with my stress outbursts and meltdowns when I am overwhelmed by the wedding preparations. It is not easy putting up with a perfectionist planner who wants to be in control of every little details and she doesn't have enough sleep due to work schedules.. Grouchy, grumpy, highly-strung. That's me. Yes, I am a Bridezilla but the mild one.. not the explosive type. Thank God Le bf is so understanding and sweet.
These two BBFF (Beyond best friends forever).. tsk tsk.

Next meetup will be my Hen's Party! I've already laid the ground rules.. No boys (except Nathaniel), no strippers, no alcohol and no hanky-panky.
Sounds like a boring Hen's Party hor? But I never believed in those alcohol fuel Hen's night cos it's so unladylike. A Hen's Party is for the bridemaids to bond together and to honour the bride to be.. not trapeze through pubs and clubs and drink shots, get drunk & wasted and do stupid stunts and dares with other men who are complete strangers. You wouldn't do that when you are attached, let alone before getting married! I never understood the concept of having to "Be wild for one night for the last time". If you wanna be wild, stay single and go wild. Please respect yourself and also your future husband. My question to those brides are.. will you show the pictures or videos of the wild Hen's Night you had to your husband to be? Mother? Mother-in-law? Everyone who knows you? I rest my case.
By the way it applies to men too.. doesn't mean you are getting married means you can go and do a "Hangover" and hire strippers and have sex with total strangers. If you love and respect your wife to be, you will not hurt her by doing such stupid things.
