We did not opt for pre-wedding shoot coz we were not comfortable with the idea of being touchy2 before nikah. And we can’t take those feeling2 shots so we opted for post-wedding shoot with KKB. Dah halal so can touch2 abit more lah. Hehe
However, at the last minute, we decided to take some simple shots to print a poster for our receptions. So we engaged F’s friend who does photography for leisure. We brainstormed places to do the shoot and finally settled on Gardens by the Bay East.
Thank you Asri Fotografi for these beautiful pics!
We chose 2 pictures and got Oneinkjet to print and frame it up for very cheap, I think like $17 each. We got easel stands and tadaaa! My reason for putting the picture was so that the hundreds of people yang di-jemput know how the bride and groom looks like. Haha!
Ok, next is photobooth. I had absolutely no budget to engage a photobooth vendor. I thought of just asking my friends to set up a table and take polaroid shots of my guest and man the guestbook table as well. But somehow, I strongly felt that I did not want to trouble my friends coz I wanted them to come as guests. So after much deliberation, I managed to get one of F’s close friend to do the photobooth at a relatively affordable price.
However, I attended my cousin’s wedding in Oct and she had a photobooth. My cousins and I enjoyed the photobooth so much that my aunt ‘forced’ me to agree to have the same vendor for my wedding. I told her of my financial situation and somehow she managed to get my cousins to share the cost of the photobooth vendor.
So yeah, I can have a photobooth!!!! I was so excited about it coz I get to design my own frame for the printouts. A big shout-out to Nizam from Wishpix for accommodating to my many requests. Using Microsoft Powerpoint (BIG LOL), I came up with a few designs:
And finally got to this one which I love so much!
I requested for the pics to be hung around the gazebo and they turned out so lovely! Many many thumbs up to Wishpix! They gave out unlimited prints to my guests without my guests needing to pay additional $1-2 for each picture. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND! And also, mega thanks to all my cousins who contributed! 😀
Ok more updates soon!
