Fairy Tales Wedding Reception.....

This is a long outstanding back dated post since the Day Wedding Part 1

Continuing from where the chinese wedding ceremony was held with much success and full of amusement, all the family members did not get to rest even a bit before proceeding to the night reception. Despite this time the bride's family was given the excuse to escape from following over to the groom's place but me & my sister were still running short of time to prepare ourselves for the dinner reception. Time was spent clearing & cleaning up the mess at mom's place after the day wedding.

Once i settled myself at home, it was almost 3pm so i headed for my hair-do & make-up. At the salon, i saw my gang of aunties & cousins there (close to 8 of them) almost completing their hair-dos! Dady was given the order to bath the boys & wait for my return.

By the time i finished grooming myself, it was almost 5pm. I zoomed back hurrily & kicked everyone up......pack everythg into the car & rushed to the hotel. We brought along all our clothings to the hotel for the change. Went ahead to pick up my youngest sis (the bridesmaid) & noticed she only managed to get her hair done.........no time to touch her face & gosh...need to rely on me for make-up once we reach the hotel.

Initially we promised the bride to be at the hotel by 6pm to help getting the reception table ready....but but at 6pm we just left Puchong. Boy....Cocktail party was suppose to start at 6:30 p.m. Thank god traffic wasn't that bad.

Finally we arrived hotel close to 6:45pm. I had the quickest make-up done for the bridesmaid. Then only i got the chance to change myself & put on all my accessories. I had no time to even see my boys so dady was the one that changed them!

Just as we were ready to get down for the cocktail party, huby received a phone call from mom (who was close to reaching the hotel). Mom said they 'FORGOT' to bring along the box of liquor......OH....MY.....GOD!!! You know how important is that to the dinner?? Will the dinner survived without the liquor?? We know it was important but huby was of course not happy knowing that mom wanted him to turn back to Puchong to get the liquors as he was the only one having mom's house key! Huby was angry but he knows he got no choice as he wouldn't want my dad (being the host) to drive back where he was suppose to be there entertaining the guest. I can only be angry but was too lost to think of how to remedy. Luckily in the end, huby agreed to go back for that important task despite reluctantly. We all worried that he will speed & that really spoilt our mood! Again, with blessing, traffic was surprisingly pretty good & huby reached the hotel again before 8pm. He was such an angel that night.........hehehe!!

Luckily we had other relatives to mann the reception table on our behalf before our arrival.....

WELL.......Enough of suspense & ranting.......

Frankly speaking from the outlook of the hotel, it was not very appealing but i must agree that the ballroom decoration was simply awesome, gorgeous, stunning, lovely, sweet = one word GRAND !!! Thus, i'd like to name it a fairy tales wedding dinner. Lets take a look at the hotel decor..........

















Mom & Dad......


Here's the prince charming & its' princess.....



Sharp 8:30, the grand march-in started.........guess what, my boys being the flower boys led the show & amazed all the guests. They got a bit excited with the light switched-off & the release of the gas/smoke hence they forgot to do their usual 'stunt'.......... instead, they behaved extremely well until they again forgot to sprinkle the flowers.....



The next in the row of march-in........



The highlight of the night............

Below were some snapshots taken during the toasting & speech session. Nice PINK gown ehh?? I chose & convinced her on the choice wan......hehehe !! My elder sis commented that the whole grand event was kind of spoilt by their speech coz they were interacting (with shouts & yells) with their friends at the other end of the ballroom & it looked to us like they were shouting in the market........hahahaha!! It was indeed their intention to be casual & loosen up the usual feeling of tense when it comes to speech!!


As expected, food wise wasn't as good as those we had during the food testing we had earlier but guess we were too mindful to even bother about it....... The boys were just too excited until they refused to eat anything. They also made us so embarassed by running, jumping, hopping & at times lying down on the floor carpet !!


It was a tiring event for us all yet fruitful. Most importantly, i bet it was definately a night of remembrance for the couple.....
