I just registered my marriage legally with my husband last week at the Registry of Marriage (ROM)! ❤
I ❤ my dress!
Bought this dress from Theory of Seven, which first came too big on me. Thanks to my talented mother-in-law who worked as a dressmaker before, she managed to alter my dress to fit my size and height. I love how the ombre-effect of the dress make the photos look so beautiful! And the husband who dressed up as well 😉
Loving this flower bouquet that my husband got for me, after showing him my preferences of flowers and arrangement. ❤
For all brides and grooms who want to save money, go to your neighborhood florist and ask them to rearrange the flowers for you as it is definitely cheaper than you buy from malls or elsewhere (depending on the flowers you choose). After comparing prices and talking to the florist, we got this bouquet for SGD $60, with a nicely tied ribbon at the end. It was comparably cheaper than those florists that I look around online. I also source for my neighborhood florist when I had to help my sister-in-law get her bridal album table cotton flower bouquet and it was a very nice experience with negotiable price too!
How about makeup?
Deciding to save money, I decided to do my own makeup and I think I am quite successful despite being a beginner!
I can tell you that this photo is not edited. I just love how my foundation ( give my skin such a dewy finish and it looks fabulous in photos without any white cast. Before that, I put the primer and moisture ampoule base to allow the face to be work on smoothly. The mascara I used gave me such nice lashes without the need of putting fake lashes. I also add in a little bit of glittered eyeshadow to add some glamour, together with liquid eyeliner to enlarge my small, mono eyes. That’s one problem of having mono eyelids, it is so tough to make your eyes look big. I use orange blusher to give a nice healthy glow on my cheeks. Thankfully, an extremely nice and friendly makeup artist who did my makeup for an event, taught me the dos and don’ts for my makeup so I was able to pull this off nicely.
For girls who always have chapped and dry lips like me, do put lip sleeping mask the night before so that you will get a moist and plump looking lips the next morning! Another tip from me is to put the lip sleeping mask first before putting your lipstick. I can assure you that it will look great without the fear of having the color sinks into the lines of your lips.
After that, put loose powder to set the whole make up and you are good to go! This whole makeup look took me only 30 minutes which is not bad for a novice! Probably because I am a portrait pencil artist, maybe that’s why I can draw my face like that. *A pat on my back*
Makeup I used for this look:
- Real Skin Moisture Ampoule Base from Witch’s Pouch
- Skin Equalizer Primer from Make Up For Ever
- Ultra HD Make Up For Ever Foundation
- Perfect Cover Concealer from Witch’s Pouch
- Shadow Insurance Anti-Crease Eye Shadow Primer from Too Faced

You can find most of these stuffs from either Sephora or Althea Korea Singapore. You can see that I am quite a fan of Witch’s Pouch! The rest like Etude House, Skinfood and Aritaum brands, I shopped them at Korea during my pre-wedding shoot vacation! I also did for my mother’s makeup that day and she loved her look too! *Double pats*
And finally, my favorite photo of the day!
I am so loving this picture taken by my brother-in-law! We decided that to show our joy and excitement by posing fun shot here instead of serious and boring pose with the backdrop outside ROM.
Why take such serious shot when it is a happy event? 😉
