C ♥ C Wedding Diary: Be your own Wedding Planner!

Sorry for not updating for more than a week! Our food hunts & reviews were halted by a huge agenda coming our way.

The Wedding

C ♥ C Wedding Planning has been a really great routine for the past 1 year till now! I would really miss NOT planning when our wedding ceremony is over.  Though we’ve been through lotsa ups & downs, at the end of the day we would just realized we’re doing our best for each other to make the best thing happen. Thus we decided to do a Wedding Diary: marking down how hard we worked for this. Haha.


Here’s our wedding itinerary: not the best quick guide but definitely giving a clearer view that Wedding Planning is way tedious than it looks!
Be your own Wedding Planner! 🙂

  12. Hi Christine

    May I know did you husband made his wedding suit in Bangkok? If yes, can I know who is the tailor and can i have the contact pls?


    1. Hi Aileen,
      Chris bought ready made suit when we were there as we were rushing that time. His ready made suit is very fitting too 🙂
      If you want tailor made ones, you can check out the shops at 2nd floor, at Amari Watergates; right opposite Platinum mall. My dad got his suit done there with superb quality and at a very reasonable price.
      If you wish to do a suit in BKK, it’s advisable for you to go get the measurements and choose fabric quality on the first day though they mentioned ready within 24 hours 🙂 Can amend if there are anything that you’re not satisfied with 🙂 Hope these info helps!
