ROM venue – Checked. Finally found a place small enough and nice to accommodate 40 pax !
One thing off the list but soooo many more to go. I can’t wait for his PR application after our wedding so that we can get a house and start our little cozy family nest.
It’s been almost a month since my trip and photoshoot in Korea.
Quite a number of people asked me to help them to liase and refer to my bf’s friend. She is currently helping foreigners to liase with studios in Busan. She speaks good English and is my fiance’s long time childhood friend in Busan. So we do refer people to her and she will be there to accompany the bride and groom and help in translations. She speaks French , English and Korean. Someone we trust and know so some of my friends felt more comfortable that everything will be settle properly.
Here’s what happened on my photoshoot day.
I didnt get to try the dresses in SG unlike the studios here in SG. Where you try dresses over here , bring to the Korea studio and take the photos. I think that is why they are very expensive and range up to 6k 0r 7k for the shoot. Because you are paying for services on both sides. It is cheaper to liase directly with studios there. Trust me you save REALLY ALOT up to 50% or 60%.
So here’s what happens when i arrive in the studio.
I was lead to the make up room where the make up artist do my make up. I like the Korean bridal make up style because the make up enhances your features and i went out with the make up after my shoot. Because it is so natural and in the photos , look like you have really flawless skin and machiam you never put on any make up.
I was told by the assistant that on that day , i will be the princess. All i have to do is just to relax , smile and take pretty pictures.
Really felt like princess. The assistant insisted on helping me to wear my shoes. If i am thirsty , they will pour water for me. And also hold my dresses , shoes etc when we go up and down the studio ( studio has 5 storey and each storey has different themes ).
When the make up artist was working on my face , a lady brought me some brochures and ipad to choose the type of look and gown i want. I got to choose 4 white gowns.
After which i was lead to the changing room that was just meant for me where a helper will be there to help me dress up and the make up artist to touch up whatever after i wore the dress. She will check for my size and bring the dress that fits my size. But for some studios they pin the back of the dress. But lucky for mine , i had sizes to choose.
Here’s me all dressed up for my first white dress and waiting for the make up artist to finish up the final touches for my hair.
And then me and my 2nd dress.
I chose alot of laces and tulles.
One of the mermaid dress which i picked for my shoot. Super nice dress. I love the off shoulder laces.
I was given a booklet to choose the hair and make up style i want. You can mix and match.
eg Hair from one of the pic and eye make up from another
But i had done my own research and samples search. So i showed her the look i want and she replicated it.
Here’s one of the photos we took.
We were given 3 CDs with 1800++ photos and we are supposed to choose 50 of them for editing.
LOL so any photos and we haven’t even screen through every single one yet.
Hopefully to do so before mid June to send in for editing and printing. I think it maybe because of the Hanbok shoes LOL i looked like im floating leh…for hanbok , we have to wear a special traditional Korean shoes.
Uploaded a couple of new photos on my instag too !
And nowadays , i am searching for our march in songs and video songs. Im doing my videos with Framewerks.
And im doing a little bit different in Korean style.
Ahh im choosing a Korean march-in song for our SG ROM and an English song for our Korean ROM.
Sometimes when i go to wedding dinner in SG , a couple of wedding couples used Korean songs for their videos or march in. And Oppa and i realized that some songs had lyrics about break ups , love one who died or a bad quarrel. The tune may sound nice or romantic but the lyrics are abit off. So if you are keen in using a Korean song , try to find one that are meant for weddings or have lyrics about being in love. You can go to youtube to check for the songs you want with English lyrics to double confirm.
Here’s 2 of my shortlisted songs for march-in.
During weddings in Korea, there is someone who sing a Wedding Congratulatory song.
And i decided to go for this one. My brother-in-law’s friend will sing this song for us on our wedding in Korea.
