Have you attended any weddings before? You can share any weddings! How about your own weddings, do you held it in a church, temple, gardens, hotels or any wonderful or funny experience about weddings that you would like to share? Where you went for your 'honey moon'? If you have not married, what type of dream weddings you always wish, and where you would like to have your 'honey moon'? Just my personal experience to share with you... I always laugh when I think about it.. lol My husband and my family members are from outstation. We have to make sure those who do not know where the church is, have to come to our house first. Then we will either convoy them or sit on the cars provided for them. So we have to reach the church before 2pm for the wedding ceremony and changing of vows. After that we have hi-tea reception, photos taking and rush back home to change to go to a club for the dinner reception. The best part was our 'wedding car and its official driver' went home to Subang Jaya to refresh and change. By 7pm we have to be there to receive invited guests. Waited and waited, the 'wedding car' got caught in Subang Jaya famous 'jam'..lol. That time no cell phones...we can't wait and we call for a taxi. The taxi driver was shocked to see that he is picking up newly wed couples to the Club. The rest of the cars have to pick the outstation relatives... Quite FUN & MEMORABLE! Talking about 'PUNCTUALITY'!

Weddings, I have attended too many wedding to remember.But there are a few that that I can vaguely remembered as these happened long ago. There was one wedding my better half and I attended which we have to wait for close to 2 hours for some important guests of the groom, dinner cannot begin without them. Everyone were very very hungry.The minute the late-comers arrived everyone heaved a big relieve as if strike the jackpot. There was another occasion which my colleague and I attended. Guess what? We missed the king of all dishes- Shark Fins. We started our journey from Singapore at 4:00 pm and drove up north to Segamat, Johore in Malaysia. In those days there was no highways, we used the torturous narrow trunk road and over-taking trucks was an ordeal. We lost the way and asked for directions and ended up missed 4 dishes. Bad experience!!

Dear James, Hahaha...that is the price for not being 'Punctual' I have been to one wedding dinner many years ago in a 5 star hotel in Kuala Lumpur. That evening, heavy rain, thus bad traffic jam..the dinner supposed to start at 7:30pm, an allowance of 30 minutes is tolerable. We arrived punctual because we know KL traffics are always bad. But the VIPs weren't there in time, imagined the dinner officially started at 9.15pm, we are really very hungry...an unforgettable wedding dinner, we will always quoted that wedding dinner ' the latest we have ever attended '..lol According to my husband, one of the Singapore 5 star hotel literally having a fantastic promotions 'We will give a one night hotel stay at the most expensive room here if the wedding dinner can start punctual and ended on scheduled!'..Till today, no one had acheved it, that shows how bad people are at 'punctuality'.. All the best, do keep in touch..

My husband and I just got married in June!! I've also been to several weddings in my day. Our wedding consisted of a ceremony first at the church. Our ceremony was in a Lutheran Church and it lasted for about a 1/2 an hour. After the church ceremony our marriage license was signed by the pastor and we were officially married! After the ceremony we had a reception , which was basically like a big, formal party to celebrate our marriage. It was the best day of my life, marrying my best friend.

Hello Iriene, No, i didn't attend any wedding before. But now i am going to attend the wedding. Tomorrow is my friend's wedding and i'm planned to go to it. His marriage is going to held at a marriage hall. In our locality there are seperate halls for the marriage, because our population is very high and marriages are happening very frequently. Also, during no marriage, they will rent the hall for the other functions like parties,etc., Have a nice day..

Hi Iriene88, lol... it was indeed a very memorable wedding for you, taking a cab to the club! Since I was 4, I've always dreamt of having a fairytale wedding. With a flowing nice gown, a prince charming, nice banquet, diamond ring and lots more. I am lucky that I did find my prince charming and he did give me a fairytale wedding and now we are blessed with our own little prince. We went to China for our honeymoon as we had burst our budget for the wedding. The following year, for our 1st Anniversary, we went to Europe.. the following year, we celebrated our anniversary with our little prince and had been grounded in our country since then.. no more travelling until the little one is older!

Hi Submerryn, So lucky of you to have a fairytale wedding. I thought fairytale wedding is only for the rich and famous. It will cost a lot more than most of us can afford. As for our honeymoon, we went to Europe, 10 countries 15 days. Such wonderful memories...

James, Haha. That explains the reason why we ended up in China for our honeymoon and only went to Europe a year later for our first anniversary. The wedding dinner does costs a bomb, top that with the photography, live band and many more. Come to think of it, many people burst their young life savings on weddings these days...

Dear submerryn, If I have the opportunity, I will visit you and have a look at your 'expensive' wedding studio album. I believe it is really beautiful! This new generation photography have outdoor and indoor session. Very interesting but I just wonder whether is it worth the money.. coz after a few years most of this album is kept. I too spend around RM988 for the wedding gown and studio photography, that was like ampteen years ago, only indoor photography. One thing about this studio photography, they are very business minded, assuming package of 1 Large photo and 30 small ones...but during studio time they will snap more than that, once developed and 'touch-up' all look good, so most of us will purchase more, means pay more, over the budget Thanks for sharing, all the best!

Iriene.. how come nobody want to give you a lift? I thought the 'main cast' should be given priority ma.. :p BTW, since I know what a wedding dinner during my 'young' age, I have been telling myself, I don't want any of it on my wedding day.. I don't think a dinner is the must, since everyone is tired out for the ceremony.. I would love to have a dinner celebration on my 10th wedding anniversary and then I shall be able to announce to everyone, I did have a good 10 years of marriage...at least those give ang pow also 'kam yun' that those give then you hear them getting divorce the next year.. I have a friend always complain that we should make those couple who get married without thinking in proper and not even taking the responsibilities to maintain it, should return all the ang pow to the guest.. and one more thing, I find it weird when people keep asking if one gain or loss in having the wedding dinner.. is that what the wedding dinner suppose to be?

My husband and I have been married for five years now. We were married in the same church where I grew up and our reception was in the gymnasium of the church. It was such a perfect event for me. We didn't dump our entire savings into our wedding, but rather we spent on the things that were important to us. My favorite memory of our wedding day was the release of memorial balloons. We'd filled balloons with helium and placed a memorial tag inside of each one for people that should have been at our wedding but had passed away before our wedding. This was the best way that I could think of to remember those people on my special day, and it was such an emotion part of our day. The balloons were white and silver and each was released individually. It was just absolutely beautiful.

Really enjoyed going through your discussion on wedding ceremony. You can rewind those moments and use as stress buster. I generally never go for any weddings. My people are not happy with this nature of mine and so the common topic at every wedding is about my absence. But I did attend a few of them here and there. A couple of them turned out very funny. If I go to describe them here it will be very lengthy.

As long as you are right and have your reason (not excuse)...just don't bother what they said...is their mouth..just remember this phrase : WE CANNOT PLEASED EVERYBODY It will be great if you can share a funny wedding story here even though it is lenghty. I think everyone will enjoy and appreciate it since all of us are from different part of the world with different rich cultures!

Hello Iriene. I love weddings and have been to many...each beautiful in its own way. They usually bring tears to my eyes! That is truly funny, though probably frustrating at the time, that you and your groom had to call a taxi!! If I ever marry again, I would wish for just a simple ceremony, but with flowers and candles and closest friends and relatives. Have a happy day! Karen

Dear Karen, I am so happy to hear from you again! Hahaha, it is truly funny when I think about it! I think doing something different is 'fun and memorable' My family and I are really 'spontaneous', when we look back at what we have done, we really have a good laugh....lol There is one weekend, we were at a mall, then suddenly we decided to have a 'movie marathon + eat-thon'. We just redeem the movie tickets for 4 movies in-a-row with one break for lunch...after movies we will go from one restaurant to the next to enjoy appetizer at one, main meal at another, dessert and etc... It is truly memorable... I do agree with your views, just a simple ceremony with flowers and candles, with closest friends and relatives are more meaningful! I think it is aboslutely a good idea for my wedding anniversary.. All the best and do keep in touch!

Hello Iriene. Some of the best times come from those bursts of being spontaneous! Routine and tradition can be nice for some things, to be sure, but so can breaking out of those modes and just doing something on the spur of the moment. This is how we build great memories. Hope you enjoy your day Karen

Dear shirley, I am so happy to see you here. It really cheered me up I truly appreciate your response here and many thanks for the 'morning sunrise'...it is beautiful! Oh yes, just to share some Chinese 'supertitions'. A girl can only be a bridesmaid for 2 times, the 3rd time she should be a bride....if she become a bridemaid for the 3rd time, she might end up - single... Another one is : do not sing while cooking in the kitchen, if not will end up marrying an old husband. The reason behind this is to avoid singing the saliva into the food while cooking All the best and do keep in touch!

Dear ypyanyan, Since you mentioned about unique wedding, I would like to share about an 'out of this world' wedding! My niece got married in year 2005 at a 5 star hotel in the capital city - Kuala Lumpur. She is a Chinese married to an American guy. So, my niece decorated the ballroom, played her favourite music and songs by Bon Jovie, she put the beautiful sequins on the dinner table. Her wedding dress is custom made 'Italian' fashion with a high slit, really sexy red colour chiffon material ~ she looks like a goddess! She have flower girls too! Many of her foreign countries friends flew in from Japan, Denmark, America, Europe to attend her weddings. The romantic part was they make their own vows with my nephew conducted the wedding and witnessed the vows. They always have cross culture ritual like the Indian weddings, tying the knot and fire... The bride throw the bouquet of flower, the sexy stokings etc... it is so modern and romantic too! All the best, happy myLotting

Hi there! You had such a funny and unusual experience that I could not stop laughing. Hope you will never forget it through out your entire life or whenever you remember about any wedding. I am nor sure if you know about Indian weddings and what are the rituals followed to complete an Indian marriage. I'll quickly share two incidents relating to my marriage. One of my cousins was entrusted with the responsibility of getting the car decorated for wedding and send off ceremony. When he was to get it decorated for send off ceremony, he got so tired and exhausted that he himself slept in the car and it came at the venue well after 2 hours of scheduled time. Band party comes to play some songs, at the time of wedding and finally when the girl is finally given send off by her family members, at the conclusion of the wedding ceremony. Band party also slept somewhere hoping that the ceremony will end by 4.00 a.m. in the morning. However, to their misfortune, the ceremony ended at 2.30 a.m. and my wife's family performed the send off ceremony after that and we people left with the bride by 3.00 a.m. for our home. When the band party came at 4.30 a.m. in the morning, they were informed that the marriage party i.e. bride grooms' family had already left and they were deprived of their fees/money.

Dear dpk, Thanks for sharing such a hilarious and memorable wedding...truly appreciate it! I enjoyed reading it very much...when it is different, it is memorable! Btw, I am curious..how the band collect the money later? Does they managed..???..lol I would like share about the most memorable wedding dinner that I have ever attended :~ My ex-boss ~ a regional manager of a pest control company (Malaysian). He fell in love with a Hong Kong 'sales representative' in a seminar. This beautiful Hong Kong girl is a fan of Michael Jackson. At that time there is no emails yet. So, they have long distance love relationship via long distance phone calls! Wow..that's romantic. One day, he found out that Michael Jackson's is having a concert in Singapore. He booked the concert tickets and a flight ticket for her to watch the concert in Singapore. They have a whale of fun, immediately after the MJ concert, he porposed to her and SHE ACCEPTED! Their wedding reception was held in a 5 star hotel in PJ and their invitees are from all parts of the world from Canada to Australia..from North to South, from West to East. Before the wedding started, they had executives carrying flags from almost every country of the world..Kungfu performance & MJ concert video on the wide screen...I'm Speechless - PERFECT Wedding! Tks and take care, do keep in touch!

To your query - the band party was paid later on the amount due to them, however, had they joined at the time of send off ceremony, they might have got some additional money/income, which they missed...............LOL! Many thanks for describing about one of the most memorable marriages, I kept reading it again and again.

Talking about punctuality, I only remember 'stress'. We had to go back to Malacca to 'chum char' to his parents and come back to KL on the same afternoon for the wedding dinner. We got married on first day of Raya and caught in the famous KL - Seremban jam, along with 10 'chee mui' cars behind us. I saw my BIL from China exit to PD and I screamed !!!!! Malacca is another few stops away. Luckily for hp, I managed to call him and he reversed his car back to the highway. Arriving at in laws was major stress, chum char, standing in line taking family photo, despite all that, gotta 'smile'.. then lunch and then another mad rush back to KL, and to the hotel. I quickly changed to shorts and t-shirts but still with my morning make up. When I arrived in the hotel at 6pm, I saw relatives from Malacca arriving ahead of me. They saw me, the hurried bride, quickly running past them with shorts and shirts n morning make up n hair do, running to my bridal suit to get changed.. Woah,,, major stress !!! BUT despite all that, we look back and have a good laugh !!!

nice memorable event for you. thanks for sharing. sorry to say i am not married. i will marry with in 8 or 10 years. but i have participated for more marriage fuctions. my brothers wedding is due on this december. A fuction is actually headache for me. lots of problems, try to run for several arrangements. booking forchurch, hall, etc. now for three and a half month i am free from this burdens. For a marriage the most important factor is food. all are invited for eating food. so one must arrange food with great taste. one instance happened for my sisters marrage. in that fuction all said the food was only satisfactory. nice post keep posting more.

With the vast exposure, you will be creative and full of ideas by the time you plan for your own wedding! Oh yes, during the wedding, the food is very important. That's why in Malaysia, they have 'food tasting' for the marriage couple and family 2 weeks before the dinner function...on the menu ordered! You can always get 'personalised chocolates' or gifts for the guests and a thank you gift! Thanks for sharing, do keep in touch!

Hi Iriene, My husband and I met in the country's capital city, but both our parents lived in the province, mine were from down south, while his were from the north. We decided to have the wedding ceremony in his hometown, which was a lot nearer than my own province, where my parents were. It was big deal to my parents, they said it should be held in my hometown because I was the bride (didn't understand that belief). I explained to them that it will be more expensive to fly all his relatives to my province than flying them (my parents) to Manila because all my sisters and brother and other relatives lived in Manila anyway. After some sentimental arguments, they gave in. Back then there were no hotels in my husband's hometown, only motels. In my country a "motel" has a negative connotation, it's a place where people go for for a short "happy hour" or S&X, so nice, decent ladies are supposed to stay away from them. But I didn't have any choice but to check in there together with my brides maids, while my husband stayed in his house with his own set of relatives/visitors - again, to heed a belief that the bride shouldn't be in the groom's house until their married. I was like - this is the night before my wedding and I'm in a motel. To my relief, the wedding went well, which was good because the pre-wedding was so much trouble already, and I could have been out of my wits if the wedding day itself went bad too.

I have attended 7 weddings so far and I have also been a flower girl as well as a bride's maid once before. I love weddings; from the couple's story, to the ceremony, the little details, just about everything! I am a nurse by profession but back when I was still 16 years old, I made a portfolio of inspiration pictures for my future wedding and I'm still updating it every now and then! When all else fail in nursing, I guess I'm going to have to be a wedding planner. Lol! To Iriene, that was quite an experience! Somehow these little things or glitches are always bound to happen but they also make your special day more memorable too!

Dear chiaren, Welcome to myLot and I am glad to hear from you Wow, you have attended quite a number of weddings, that's great! You are so blessed, you have been a flower girl and a bride's maid before...so the next one will be your own wonderful, memorable and creative wedding of your dreams First and foremost, must find your Mr. Right! For myself, I have been the bride's maid for my sister's wedding and my brother's wedding. The third one is my own wedding. I totally agree with you, it did make our wedding special and memorable...something different and can laugh about it. There is one more story that I would like to add,...[b]do not be like my husband and I[/b] 1 month before the wedding, we have appointment for pre-wedding 'studio photograph' session. At that point of time, we do not have cell phones..communication is quite tough. There was no reminder on the date of appointment. We suppose to have it on a Sunday, but since I worked 5-days week, they cannot contact me on Saturday to remind, my 'husband to be' are always outstation, so can't be contacted too. Both of us are so busy with work, we totally forgot about the 'studio photograph' session, until next Monday they called me and asked why we did not come... When I was young, I am a 'workaholic', I worked 3 jobs..., so we rescheduled the appointment again. So, cell phones is very IMPORTANT!

Hi, I am so HAPPY to hear that your wedding is the most beautiful one! You must have been planned it very well. I believe your sister has helped you a lot in preparing such a wonderful wedding! Excellent! Yes, the weather played an important role too. Nice weather make everyone happy, and high heels won't get stuck on the mud too....lol. So, where did you held your wedding? In a church or at the beautiful garden? I heard Canada have very beautiful gardens of flowers...I must visit Canada one day. Oh yes, my neighbour has her weddings in a hotel. At 5pm they will have their wedding ceremony and changing of vows in the beautifully decorated garden, then at 7pm proceed for Chinese wedding dinner at the hotel. Normally the hotel will give a free night stay for the newly wedded couple in 'a honeymoon suite'! This will depend on how many dinner tables they ordered... Thanks for sharing and I truly enjoyed reading it. Hope to hear your views on my other topics too!

Weddings are very nice and I have been to several of them. I am half Greek though and so I guess I have been to quite a few Greek weddings in the past. Everyone was so happy and the dancing and smashing of plates was very nice too! I doubt that I will ever get married though! I have been living alone for a long time now and I guess I have become comfortable and used to my own circumstances. They say you never know what is around the corner so maybe I will get married one day but I just cannot imagine it right now. I don't have any family to speak of! What would my wedding be like? Without any family to support me I don't suppose it would be much of a wedding really. I love watching other people's weddings though and how they enjoy themselves. Andrew

Dear Andrew, The Greek weddings sounds lots of fun. Btw, dancing and smashing plates? What type of plates...is it any special plates specially designed for smashing...it is costly! You are absolutely right...no one knows what God have in store for us...your 'Ms. Right' might just be around the corner... I have a Malaysian friend, he has been working in the US for almost 15 years now. No one seem right for him, but surprisingly he fell in love with a Mongolian girl via 'chat in the Internet'. He visited her twice in Mongolia and they just got married in July. Thanks for sharing the wonderful Greek weddings, truly enjoyed reading it. All the best and do keep in touch!
