So many readers have contacted me to ask about Feline Wedding and how I look on my actual day and also my experience with my MUA, Mia. So I decided on a dedicated post just for it! I will also be sharing some knowledge I learnt from Mia about AD looks. I hope this helps future BTB in your wedding preparation!
1) Our Morning LookA gentle reminder for all brides, remember to wear buttoned tops so that you can change into your gown later on without destroying your make up or hair!
I started my actual day at 4.30am. Mia came at about 5am to work on the make up. Hair and make up was almost completed by 6am. Fast and smooth!



Just a comparison, the before and after of my make up look. 



Moving on to bunning up my hair...



For my wedding gown, I chose this simple gown with mesh on top and no long train. I find this gown sweet, classy and easy to move around in. I was also not comfortable about revealing my boobs so this is just perfect for me.

Review: Solemnization at Dutch Colony Coffee Co. (Frankel Avenue)

Image
We spent this year's Deepavali celebrating the union of Weibang and Alice at a cafe called Dutch Colony Coffee Co. along Frankel Avenue. It was a small but intimate affair!



Location: Fair -I must be frank, the location is pretty unaccessible by public transport. It is situated right smack in the middle of many many private estates. -Parking at the cafe is very limited, therefore, consider parking at the Wilton Garden estates. Parking is free since its private estates area, that's the plus point. -For guests taking the public transport, the nearest MRT is Kembangan MRT station. From there, there will be a 5 minutes walk to a bus stop to take bus 32. Bus interval is about 15 minutes. Alight after 3 stops and you will reach the cafe. Alternatively, just walk all the way down for about 1.2 km. -If you are all dressed up and wants to avoid getting sweaty from the walk, consider cabbing down from Kembangan station. Taxi ride is only about 3-5 minutes.

Ambience : Chic and Friendly -T…
