Oh hello blog world!
2014 have started with a bang for me :)
I finally tied the knot on January 11, 2014, hence you can see that ppst have been so randomly sparse. It was a simple event and of course an affordable one too. After all, we are not called ShoppingKaki for no reason. We have a mission - to shop in THRIFT MODE! =D
Reception corner with all my DIY stuff haha!
Who needs bridal-shop-developed photos when you can get yours done via Photobook Malaysia =P
Here I am starting off with one of the highlight of the event that everyone grew to love at the end of the event that the crew can't leave on time :/
A must have 'item' to prevent wedding dinners from being hogged by guest wanting to go on stage to sing - PHOTOBOOTH!
It was a very last minute decision for me to go with a photobooth session, but as I do not intend to play the norm of any conventional Chinese wedding dinner where you have to show slides of yourself and the partner from age 1 till current, I thought why not keep them busy doing something else?
So I got everyone LOL-ling for more with LOL Photobooth! =D
Guest get to show off for a whole 3 hours!
The LOL team preparing before the start of the event.
Some of the props that is going to be over-utilized soon!
Upon committing to their services, the team have asked me specifically on the backdrop colors, the props concept and the photo frame concept so that they can start planning out for the day.
How difficult to assume that any other wedding would want a red backdrop, lovey-dovey props and photo frame with 1,000 love shapes all over. But because I never want to be mainstream, so I had mine in silver/grey backdrop, crazy props and a customized photo frame that matches my wedding card.
And they were working at speed to get all these up and confirmed in, say, A DAY time? Efficient!
Here's some of my favourite pictures for the day!
With the ShoppingKakis : Wei Ni of Peep Boutique, Nathalie and Jacyln!

With my classmates from highschool. Spot me with a chicken!
Spotted a guest trying to down the chicken!
That's my mum trying to be a Diva!
When I appointed the LOL Photobooth for the event, it was really something that I wanted to do for my friends who is attending the dinner. That is most probably 60 guest out of the 160 guest. Yes, the rest were people I barely get in contacts and were clans from mum's end *like.any.other.chinese.wedding*
The thrill and excitement of having their picture taken with props have suddenly spread and we have a multitude of characters never seen before surfacing!
Loner goes up the backdrop for a selfie | Some serious looking people wanting to show some muscles
Kids hogging the backdrop like I am organizing some kid's contest. And they walk over on their own!
More kids wanting a shot of fame! | I spotted this kids a gazillion time!
Doctors become rockers | Aunty becomes a bunny
Spotted the restaurant waitresses sneaking out for a picture or two!
All pictures taken on the day will be printed and is available to be brought home. If you have 8 people in the picture, there will be exactly 8 sets of the picture frame available so that everyone gets to go home and ramble non stop on their bravest attempt in striking a pose :)
Pictures ready for guest to bring home!
Being Chinese, there's bound to be so much hoo-haas on what to do and not to do when organizing a wedding dinner event. I am glad I did the right thing by getting in a photobooth session. Everyone sort of went home with an achievement - they look great in the filtered pictures haha!
part of my stash from the night =D
The LOL team was really swift with their work attending to guest of all ages from 6yeras old up to 75 years old! With their reasonable price I am happy to see that they have sufficient manpower to man the booth, photoshopping every fussy pictures, snapping pictures non-stop and ushering everyone who have never heard of a photobooth session to try it out!
