The past two weeks was simply a big, logistic challenge.
We were intend on making our pre-wedding shoot a fun experience. Thus, it was a challenge for us to come up with a place that was beautiful, a plan that was within our budget, and a trip we would enjoy! Of course, we had already given this some thought beforehand, so it was down to the details this time round.
Sourcing for the best travel deals.
Calculating, and re-calculating travel expenses.
Coordinating travel schedules with our make-up artist and photographer.
Sending emails, and waiting for replies.
Alas, we’re almost done with the travel arrangements. Deliberately left out some details here – we’ll be sure to let you in on them when we post our blog entries next year!
Having settled The Trip, we turned our attention to The Car. More than just a tool for travelling, the bridal car ought to be special! Now that we’ve spent some time (see previous post) checking out the available options in Singapore, I have to say that we’re sort of limited in choices.
We wanted something spacious. Something that looks different. Something with character. We found some that probably meets the criteria, but we didn’t really like the price tag.
However, all is not lost – there is hope.
Well, as per the previous entry, you would have realised that we kind of failed to get what we want. We tried looking for alternatives but there just aren’t enough special wedding cars around for rental.
So we decided to email back one of the exquisite car owners our rough itinerary thinking that ours is a simple one since we only need it for the morning half day to fetch us around. But as expected, the owner said our itinerary that of a typical wedding and is not exactly short so he can’t really give us a discount. We told him we had a tight budget to work with and he was asking how much are we looking at and if it’s too low he can’t be of service to us anymore.
It’s not like Feng and I love that vehicle to death but it’s just that it fits our theme the best. We even looked about for alternatives and came up with one. But eventually we went back to thinking bout renting the one choice that is not within our theme colors. Reason being the cost is really more affordable for a half-day rental and I have all along been wanting to have THAT VEHICLE as my wedding car. So I told Feng, “Heck, I rather have a clash and have something I want and save that money for the car decor.”
So Feng had just given the owner a call to ask ’bout the quotation for a half-day rental and it’s quite a good quote! Rental of the car will be in Jan 2011 since our wedding is in October 2011. Hehez. Probably have to do a comparison with another price quote to decide who to rent from. I MUST HAVE THAT CAR! 🙂
Once again, I asked Feng are we going to post a photo of our wedding car. He said we could probably post a few photos of a few cars and probably you all can guess what’s our final decision. 🙂
