"Remember to Remember"

A Decade of LOVE

1…2…3… setting our little feet into the number TEN
Learning to love
Learning to treasure


Finally, when the question popped, a once-in-a-lifetime decision was secured.
Time to get real after a DECADE!

Here's some humble tips that we would love to share on what we did for our Registration of Marriage.
Even planning for a simple ROM could be mind-blowing but it's fun after all, especially when the hubby involved himself a lot in it.


♥ Pre-ROM ♥


#1 Save the Date
Decide on the venue for registration first so that you could plan ahead. We chose JPN Putrajaya and it would be best to drop by JPN to submit the forms at least a month earlier. They need at least 21 days ahead before your proposed date as your details/submissions need to be displayed for 3 weeks.

#2 Set a ROM Theme
Having a Theme is fun! Something easy and meaningful would be best for the guests to follow (e.g. dress code or gifts to match)
Our Theme was: DREAMY
Ladies in Cream & Guys in Grey




#3 Gifts for Guests
Gifts to match the theme are perfect match

#4 Gratitude Cards
Thank you cards for guests to show appreciation for their attendance as well as remembrance


Pre-ROM




#5 The Wedding Band
The most important item…… A ROM is never complete without the wedding band. Different from the proposal ring, these band would be a symbol of bonding for life.

#6 Hand Bouquet, Attire & Heels
We had Champagne Roses, White heels to match the White Day Dress and not to forget to suit up your Groom.
Do look for good florists as I find my bouquet dry and not up to expectation.

♥ ROM ♥
#1 Make-up
If your best friend could do your make-up, let her doll up your confidence. You could save a lot.
My make-up artist: Citygal with the magic touch

#2 Hair-Dos
Chris's best friend made me look fresher with just a few bobby pins. Do some curls and pin it to one side. Adding a matching accessory would do magic. Not those big ones though……


Our ROM 280311


#3 Photography
Having best friends around you is a bliss. They are always right beside you… snapping the best moments.

#7 Oath
The promise made for eternity……


Our ROM 2803115




#8 The Signature
Officially man & wife. Oh, we suddenly felt grown up for a while… haha


Our ROM 2803116




#9 Putrajaya
Putrajaya is the listed as the hotspot for pre-wedding shoots. Just drop by anywhere near the bridge or buildings for some shots. As for us, we went to the Pullman Resort nearby just for a quick ROM snapshots session


Our ROM 2803117




#10 ROM Lunch Venue
This would be a tough one. Deciding on the venue to fit in the guests, decent food and most importantly not to exceed the budget. Having a caterer over at a garden terrace-like ROM would be my choice but budget would be exceeded.
We chose Levain Boulangerie & Patisserie as we thought it compromised our budget, decent food/ pastry/ desserts and classic environment.
We were given a private room at Levain just for ourselves. This was even better.

#11 More Photos
Levain is another good place for photo sessions too

#12 Reaching the Perfect 10
It's our 10th Anniversary today & having each other is a gift.
And I'm glad we skated through each year happily and still hoping for more

I love this quote:

"I want to tell you that we only began to touch the surface of all beautiful life together" said Chris. I'm touched. Really.




A Decade of Love 
Happy 10th Anniversary!!!
