What NOT to do for your wedding kiss

This won't be decent, and it won't impress your folks... nor your pastor :)

I flip my hair just like Bridget Bardot

I Am A Girl - The Girls With Glasses Theme Song from The Girls With Glasses on Vimeo.

I have always loved stop-motion.
And God knows how much I love fashion...
Which explains why this is my favourite video of the week!

Have Music. Can Travel.

(A vintage poster from the Woodstock music festival)

So, the fiancee and I basically met because of our various loves in life - his being Sound and mine being Music.

He is a sound engineer and I am a singer, so naturally, one of our biggest interests was Music.

We may not be the biggest concert-going junkies nor are the craziest of music fanatics, but there's something about the same kind of music we both love... that makes us happy.

Well, except for Paramore, we pretty much share the same tastes in music.

Apart from that, we are also totally into the vintage fare that's all the rage now. Wrinkled and yellowed paper to faded colours, it's all about that warm and comfy feeling that vintage-inspired stuff produce.

So what's a better way to merge both of our loves, than to create a vintage-themed wedding poster?

Why a poster you say?

Well, apart from our vintage-themed invites (which will be specially photographed by The Fiancee, and designed by Yours truely), I really wanted to come up with another idea to reiterate our vintage and music themed wedding.

And at the same time, spice up the vast lounge/reception area in our hotel.
Oh, did I mention that it's gonna be at the Fullerton by the way? *grins*

So these little babies would serve as the perfect decorations in and around our reception area, and our guests can even choose to bring them home after the ceremony!

It really does make for the perfect decoration cum parting gift for all your guests.
Plus, its rather economical as well :)

Here we are now, entertain us

Ever wondered how you should appropriately entertain your guests while they painfully wait for you, the couple, to make their grand ballroom entrance?

Well, for starts, making them watch a powerpoint presentation of your bridal shots is not gonna intrigue them that much after the loop plays itself.... for the 15th time.

So, what's a better way to entertain your guests when they're forcefully seated down at their tables with nothing to do, you say?

Might I suggest screening snippets of a bunch of old time classic movies?

It serves as an excellent filter while your guest mingle / or choose to stone, while they wait upon you to start the party rolling!

Ballroom dance scenes accompanied by dreamy songs sung by dreamy actors and actresses... the perfect vintage atmosphere is created by a few minutes of YouTube serving, and a few projector screens.
