Wedding Prep

Yesterday, my mom and i did last minute shopping for dresses. It's so hard to look for dresses in london! urghhh! and especially when you only have 2 weeks notice before the wedding, you become desperate. I've been searching for an evening dress for the dinner most of tuesday. I regret not bringing a camera, because i tried only probably 20+ dresses and none were completely satisfying.

Boyfriend and i went downtown to search at Elizabeth Noel, and they have TONS of dresses, espcialyl if you wanna go to prom or anything like that. THe only problem is, once you find the perfect dress, the price tag is wayyy too big. I realy liked this dark satin brown material dress. It's short, tight, but very stylish. It had these ruffle folds from the corner of ur shoulder to the opposite bottom end of the dress, and i just loved it. The only problem was, it may not be too approriate for an asian wedding. Well atleast i didn't think so, AND the was 195, before tax..ahhhh. I don't think i want to drop that kind of money on a dress i'd probably wear once. now if it was a white wedding, that ...all changes..haha

so here is the dress that i got at laura. it was on sale, "SALE" they say..i bargained for a 10% discount, bcos there was a mark on the chest area on the pruple one. :) save on tax yoo.

I ended up getting the purple one. I really liked both of them. Surprisingly i thought both looked good on my skintone. The red one almost looked better on my than the purple, but i didn't get the red one because it's Too bright, and Red is such a wedding colour. I don't want to have too much attention i guess. cos it IS RED, and why do i have a feeling that the bride will be wearing red?? Also, since it's a dinner, i thought purple would a more appropriate colour. but OVERALL, i have discovered that i may have a new loving passion for RED :)

So, as part of the wedding prepartation, i have done my nails. As you may know, i have mentioned in my previous blog that i wasn't satified with my nails. I love the colours and all, but my strokes and drawing was messy and i don't know. i wasn't BLOWN away, so i sat down recreate it and this is what i came up with. I'm actualyl realy proud of these. My mom even asked me who did it for me?! haha, and i was proud to say, mom...i did it myself. hahaha. Yes, you may have guessed, i LOVE shimmer. it does give you the pop and for a wedding, i think simple things like this is appropriate.

I have been trying to be careful with washing dishes and anthing that has to do with water, cos i don't want my work of art to get destoryed before i go to the wedding. haha

Yesterday, i was at Cindy's place, and we helped fix my previous dress. I showed her what i wanted, and she altered it in a way that the bottom is uneven and it shows a bit more leg on one side. You know, when you are short, you try ur best to make urself APPEAR taller. hahaha.. She had to attend a coworker's service thingy. I'm not sure what exactly you would call it, but it's a group of religious people, They are CHristian and they meet up at a house, and do readings, and teachings about a certain topic. CIndy didn't want to go alone, so since i was being a good friend, and after jacking a few of her stuff for the wedding i decided to keep her company. We got a rid from her coworker and went to the house. It was half an hour long and basically you sing songs, anda then red parts of the bible and talk about it. The topic that day was about leaders and their importance. The only thing i remember was, a LEADER is something whom is mature and lives's Gods' word. It realy reminded me of the MASSES that i've attended when i was still in highschool. It was nice though. THe people were realy friendly and nice. It's nice to hear these..meaningingful things and think of how there are people like this in the world. Praying and reading God's word everyweek or so. People who are very relgiious and take everyword in the Bible serious. My family isn't hard core religious, so it was a very good experience for me.

Anywas, so now i'm packing for the wedding. The wedding is in Brampton in the morning, then in Scarborough for the Dinner. So basically my family is gonna go tonight at midnight, and get there at 2ish or so, sleep for about 4 hours, get up at 5, get ready and then it starts at 7. SEVEN AM, who starts their wedding so early? i was planning to come at 10, but good thing i sortted things out prior to that, else we would've all been late. :( So much for a GOOD NIGHT SLEEEP. so i'm just packin gmy make up now. I've overpacked for sure, but i'm SOO indecisive that yeahh....As i was taking pictures of these things, i've realized i didn't bring hair stuff, SO YES, it just increased my load :(
