Aren't they beautiful?

J.D. likes the second one most but he thinks it doesn't look exactly like a wedding dress.
I'll like it as long as the wrap is loose and soft.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Yes! The loose and soft is exactly what I was also looking for. and definitely one where the (is it called sabai?) long bit that hangs over the shoulders is not a solid piece of cloth but one more like the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th one. I like the top portion of the second one and I like the first one most but I like the looseness on the abdoman of the last one.

I saw the 4th on in a more cream color on the website http://www.thaitopwedding.com/brides/wedding-dresses/thai-traditional-wedding-dresses.html/attachment/thai-traditional-dress-bangkok-collection-best-1
This actually looks nice.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

I'm also looking at something for bride's maid (Kiran). What do you think about these?

I put the one you like up there.

I think you have to make decision on yours first then the bride's maid. ^^
I shall visit those address later tonight.

<3

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

The top one & the one you like is the same style depends on the colors you choose for the tops, the one under top wrap (sabai)then the wrap itself.

ศศิ กล่าวว่า...

Dear Jan,

I agree with your choice, now you have to choose the color, ivory white up there is also beautiful. Mostly, in my opinion brown based color does not agree with our asian complexion. It will delude your beautiful skin.
I'm really happy to have a tiny part in your happines. I hope you enjoy every moment and don't be stressed out because you are getting married, many things are waiting to be done.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Jas - that's true, they are the same but one has the lace material wrapped around the body and the top one doesn't. hahaha... so we like the same one?

Sasi - I agree, brown will not look nice. I'm not stressing too much at the moment anyway. I have a whole team of people helping me choose my wedding and my bride's maid's dress - yippie!!!

Jas & Sasi - I was thinking of a creamish color. I must admit I like the color on the first picture. Is that the one you call ivory white? Oh, and we are going to need jewellery too...

talk again soon <3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Oh, I'll take a photo of my engagement ring and email it through also. It's a really nice ring; Jason has picked well. However... the ring is a bit heavy and I find that it sprains my ring finger. Jason says he takes that as a complement - hahaha...

นะกะ กล่าวว่า...

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

jannie, I'm expecting the photo of your engagement ring. :D
I've been checking email several times.

เจสันฝากตังแม่ไว้ทุกเดือน เป็นเวลาสองปีไว้สั่งทำแหวนหมั้น
สองเดือนก่อนขอเงินแม่ไปทำแหวน
ต้องเก็บความลับไว้สองเดือนตั้งแต่วันสั่ง
บอกว่าต้องทนมาก อยากบอกแจน
แหวนออกมาสวยเป็นที่ถูกใจว่าที่เจ้าสาว
แต่หนักไป แจนบ่นว่าเจ็บนิ้ว
เจสันบอก ขอถือว่าเป็นคำชมก็แล้วกัน
^^
Thanks Jan for sharing this with us. ^^
PJ chose some wonderful songs for you.
I put them on top left. :)

ขอบคุณนะกะ ศศิ และพี่เป้ที่มีส่วนร่วมในความสุขนี้ค่ะ ^^

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Sorry Jas, I didn't find time last night to take a photo; Kiran & I chated through skype about dresses and the wedding for a few hours after dinner. Then it was time to play with puppy, clean up, and go to sleep... not enough hours in a day at the moment :-) Are we meant to always keep the engagement ring on because I forgot to wear it today - ah oooh...

ศศิ กล่าวว่า...

แจนเล่าเรื่องแหวน น่ารักทั้งภาษาอังกฤษแล้วก็ภาษาไทยที่จัสเล่าเลยค่ะ

Yes Jan, the color of the first one I call vanilla or ivory white since I am so close to the poet. That's the color, beautiful and most proper for wedding.

Listen to the songs PJ found for you, absolutly beautiful. I suppose you have to return some compliments back. Haha.

If you want to visit my blog, go to sasipin,blogspot.com. Want to show you how Jas create me a room. I'm too busy doing other things.

Take care and try to get enough rest everynight.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

I'm getting a better idea now of what I want and I have been trying to look for something softer and thinking about the material and style of the bottom piece as well as the top. I think I very much like this style
http://www.pondsawan.com/product.php?pno=28

A few things I want and dont' want:
1) not too much shine on the material.
2) either a chiffon or lace material for the sabai
3) still deciding whether to wrap the sabai around or just pin to the shoulder. I think the one in the photo wraps well but other look messy when wrapped around.
4) For the wrap around (is it pha sin?), it would be great to have the cream/ivory white/ vanilla type color with some silver weaved into it like http://album.fanony.com/main.php?g2_view=core%3AShowItem&g2_itemId=1605 at the bottom.
5) I prefer the pattern of the wrap around to be the same throughout; so in the fanony photo, you can see that the folded front bit is different from the part that wraps around. I don't particularly like that so it should be more like the photo in pondsawan http://www.pondsawan.com/product.php?pno=28
6) AS for the top bit, I just want a light and thin material, I think, with a small amount of embroidery or plain if the sabai wraps around.

Jas, Sasi, Goi, Kiran (yes, she's come in to have a look to) - let me know your thoughts.
<3

I'll have to wait to get home to listen to the music. Thanks PJ!

Up to you

Have a great time ^ ^

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

thanks soooo much PJ. I will be busy listening to these songs tonight. :)

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

1. Ring
Yes, we're meant to have the engagement ring on all the time, we have to get used to it, seems like preparation to realization, I guess ^^.
WEAR IT ALL THE TIME AND DON"T LOSE IT. ^^

...

2. Wedding dress, The best choice in my opinion are:

2.1) Soft material for top, both the inside piece and the outer one (สไบ). Soft material is more comfortable and feminine .

2.2) The loose wrapped around top (สไบ) is beautiful when you stand most of the time but when you move around a lot or sit, it can be out of place, it can be fussy . If it is sown to the shoulder you can take it to the other waist side and pin it with something nice. If you choose to let it loose like in the first picture, you will look elegant in it most of the time.

2.3) The inner top should make of a soft chiffon with the lining in the same color, This way you will feel comfortable and feminine. You can have a look at second picture, The pleat is sown to the blouse so you can move around as much as you want and still look neat and I think it's made from chiffon. I believe all NEW Thai silk is shinny.

2.4. For the ซิ่น (skirt), I agree with your choice, off white ivory color with silver thread in it though I use to see a really beautiful gold tread in it too, usually the pattern will be the same in one piece. It's a skirt, not wrap around anymore, they sew it into a skirt as shown in the pictures.


2.5. สไบ (Sabai), if you choose lace from Switzerland, it'll be so soft but expensive, I prefer this than the embroidery one here which looks hard .


3. Shoes,
After you choose the pattern of the Thai skirt, silver or gold, then you must not forget to order the shoes as soon as possible. You should wear it a lot before the wedding so you feel comfortable in them.

4. Jeweleries: belt, necklace, wrist lace. Figure this out for the discussion.

Bride will have to do a lot of walking and other things, so you shouldn't forget that. You should feel comfortable with the dress, the shoes, the jeweleries.
But most of all, you have to feel beautiful and special


ชอบเพลงแสนล้านนาทีมากที่สุดค่ะ เหมาะกับวันแต่งงาน
แตเพลงใหม่ ๆ ที่เอามา ยังไม่ได้ฟังเลย
แต่เอาไปรวมกันทำเป็นบัลลาร์ดก็เหมาะทุกเพลง

Jannie, don't forget that J.D. did the music at the best wedding ceremony and party of the year na ka. Ask him to do the mix from P'Pe choice of songs and yours.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas,

so many things to think about.

I think I agree that the sabai should just be pinned. We will be taking photos after the ceremony so there will be a lot of moving around. Then there's no risk that the sabai will be out of place. I agree that it should be pinned up with something nice.

I like the idea of the inner piece being made of of chiffon with lining but how do you think it would be without the pleat? Just that I think it would look more elegant with a nice skirt with pattern, plain top piece, and lace sabai. I think it might be too much to have pattern on the skirt, AND top, AND sabai. Yes, I agree that the thai embroidered one looks stiff; the lace is a lot more feminine.

I was thinking of wearing the wedding dress with silver jewellery. What do you think? That's what I would like to do but I think it won't look nice. One reason, which might not be a good reason at all is because my engagement ring is platinum and I'm sure our wedding ring will be platinum also which is silver in color.

Kiran said she will most likely be in Bangkok for a few weeks next month & can visit & find the dress for me and can try it on for me as we are around the same size... but also my indian dress I wore at Kiran's wedding is at home and can be used for sizing.

So I think I like that: 1) chiffon inner top with 2) lace sabai attached to the shoulder and 3) skirt with a bit of silver and the pleated front being the same pattern as the entire material (not vertical patterns) with 4) gold? jewellery.

Hopefully Kiran will be able to join us in the discussions soon.

Will spend time listening to the music today. Ooooh, it will be grrrreat if PJ can do a mix of the songs!!!! (excited, not yelling)
<3

ศศิ กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan,

I read the comments with pleasure.

I don't think Jas meant that you should use both the pleated top with sabai. It's one or another, have a look at the 2nd photo, it's pleated then it goes to the shoulder then hang down from the shoulder to the back.
But I think it's done. You decision is good.

Yes Jan, for the belt if you look at the skirts in the photos, some of them were replaced with the embroidery at the waist line and I think that's nice. Oh you can have a look at the lowest photo.

Jewelleries, I don't know much but to see the silver, I don't think it'll match well but its only my opinion.

On the music the one you should ask to mix the songs is our bro JD not PJ, he did a lot already. ^^ I believe that what Jas meant.

I hope you don't mind that I came into discuss this.^^

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Sasi,

It's good to get many ideas. Yes, not PJ, JD too many J's and too many abbreviations. I was thinking of thai music and didn't read it correctly. I was thinking I will need thai mix too but we can do that ourselves.

I was going to ask JD's help too because we definitely want to go with some jazz as well.

Have to run. Going to look at the flower market and wedding cake this morning and more setting up house to do before "the day".

<3

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Not so many weekends left before May. When you go out, do you take puppy Dizzy with you. I told JD about the mix of Jazz for your wedding and he is very happy.

I'm looking forward to talk with Kiran too. She is in fashion business, is she now? That can be a big help. Hi to Kiran in case you drop in. ^^

Thanks Sasi, that was what I meant. ^^

Talk to you all later.

<3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas,

No, not many at all and Jason is panicking a bit (& so am I but anywayz)...

Kiran's family is into textile, not so much fashion but I think Kiran's interest is somewhat in fashion. She's got a good eye for textile & materials as well as the styles.

I emailed you photos of the engagement ring. Have you seen it yet?

x

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

No Jannie, I don't see the mail, if you can please resend it.

Bangkok is getting warm, actually it's quite hot today.

Looking forward to receive your mail.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas, I have resent the photos. <3

Kiran กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan and Everyone,

Kiran here. Hope all of you are well. I'm so excited for Jan and her family! Congratulations to you all especially Jan and Jason!!!

Here are my comments:

Top: Love the chiffon inner top idea or any soft material.

Sabai: Fine and delicate lace work preferably the one from Switzerland as mentioned above and pinned to the shoulder. This way, you don’t need to worry about during the wedding or adjusting it to take photos.

Skirt: I agree that the skirt and the pleated front bit should be the same pattern as the entire material (skirt).

Pleats in the middle of the skirt: Question – What do we call this? This is attached to the skirt already right, from my understanding above?

Jewelry: Because you’re wearing cream/ivory white, both gold and silver will go. I wouldn’t worry too much if it would match your engagement/wedding ring. Either color will look good. My question is – does/would the jewelry have a mix of stones, ie diamonds, pearls, etc? If it’s gold, it’ll be plain gold I assume (with no mix of any other jems). Just picturing it, gold might be better with the Thai dress. It will look more classic. Silver would look good if it was mixed with diamonds or all diamonds !! ;-) lol…

Got to run. Talk soon.

Love,
Kiran

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Hi Kiran & Jan,

Lovely to have you here discussing Jan's preparation for the wedding. It's really nice that you will come to Bangkok to take care of the wedding dress. Growing up with fabrics (and Jan), you should know what is best for the bride to be.

Comments:

Top: Agreed. Soft fabric which you see suitable and comfortable.

Sabai: Agreed.

Skirt: Agreed. Pleats in the middle front I believe it's called 'Na Nang', but I have to check this first for the confirmation.

Jeweleries: When you mentioned pearls, I thought that will be beautiful with the off-white cream wedding dress, and yes, I prefer gold with it. By the way I have a really fine wrist lace made of pearls, wonderful handicraft, this one I got from Pa Ouan on an special occasion. This I shall take with me to Australia. I think diamond will be a bit much for the outdoor party.

By the way Jan, have you fixed the date yet. My friend offered to look after the house and the dogs if it's in May but she wants to know the dates.

Kiran, thank you so much for you to come and post here, I really appreciate this. Take care, we can talk more when you're in Bangkok, but during now and then, let's meet here. <3

Hugs & kisses

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Yaaah! Kiran is! I think we are all in agreement then! I'm glad that one thing is "almost" out of the way.

Yes, pearl would be nice. Kiran, if I got "all diamonds", we won't be able to afford the wedding - HAHAHAHA...

Yes, the date has been confirmed for 14th May. I think it might be best if you, Jas & Kiran, arrive a week in advance to help with the logistics. Plus, we will have to get all the chatting out of the way before any of us could focus on anythign else.

Should I contact those place to see how much they wouold cost and if they sell separately as back-up plan to if Kiran can't find somethign else?

Also, don't forget the bride's maid's dress and also, I have a little 4 yr old flower girl too :) Is the bride's maid and the flower girl to wear the same color?

talk again soon xxx

จัสมิน กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan & Kiran,

So we have to be there around May 7, Ill inform my friend today.

Comments:

Bride's maid's dress: I think it should be in same color theme as the bride though I'd mostly seen bride's maid wearing different colors. The design that you chose for Kiran is called Thai Dusit, very elegant in deed and I think it should be embroiled with small pearls all over the top to make it looks special.

Bride's dress: Yes, I think it will be a good idea for you to contact some of the places to check the cost and it's better to have a back-up plan.

Pearls is a good idea indeed, clean, pure, superb.

Leave the messages here always, so that all of us will have time to think.

<3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

another site to check out. there's some quite nifty ideas on this one. The style of the tops of photo 29 and 42 are quite nice. And I quite like 42 as a whole but not in that color. See what you think

<3

Kiran กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan and Jas,

Jas - I'm so happy to be helping Jan in anyway I can. I only wish I was in Bangkok now to help her and you find the perfect dress!

Bride's Dress - I agree. You should contact the wedding dress suppliers ASAP! Don't wait for me to go to Bangkok because it's not certain yet and that also would be a month from now. Definitely have a back plan for everything - dress, jewerly, shoes, etc.

Jewerly - I agree. Pearl will look amazing! Have you decided what jewerly you're wearing - earrings, necklace, bracelets, belt, upper arm bracelets, headpiece, etc?

Bridesmaid's Dress - Love the Thai Dusit style that Jan choose. I like the deep neck line (not too deep though..hehe). I think the bride should be the only one in cream/ivory white and the bridemaid and flower girl in a different color like - pink or some other soft colors.

Flower girl's dress: I like the styles:

1) http://www.ramthai.com/ramr001.html
The last girl on the right but with less accessores. I like the 'jhung-ka-baen' idea.

2) http://www.ramthai.com/ramr047.html
http://www.ramthai.com/ramr048.html
The 2 styles above is sweet too. It's dress like and looks like a mixture of the 'east & west'. I like the skirt of the #047 but not so keen on the lace top. Looks too 'poofy'. What do you think?

Jan, what's the link you're reffering to above (photos 29 & 42)?

Love,
Kiran x

จัสมิน กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan & Kiran,

Bangkok weather is humid and grayish today. The hot season storm takes the rain along and deludes the sun light, a wet day in February.
Wish you have a nice sunny day.

Comments:

Jewelry: I really want to take belt away, if you look at the pics on top, you'll see the embroidery on the waist line. One can choose to use beads in gold color.
I think it makes sense this way.

When you use Thai dress, jeweleries will be one important topic for a discussion, with Thaiprayuk style, I think one can make it universal by using the jewelries which you can use on other special occasions later.

We have to discuss more on this topic. I believe that less is more if you have one nice outstanding piece, like necklace, then others will be only accessories.

Bride Maid's Dress: Seems there's no more question about the style but the color. This brings an important question, what is the color theme of the wedding like the tent, the table cloth, the flowers, the cake. But the bride maid's & the flower girl dresses should be pale color to blend to the bride as a group.
Question: Theme Color?

The Flower Girl dress: She's only four, Nicky's daughter?
When I think of the picture as a whole, though I like Jongkrabane, I think it wouldn't blend well and difficult to have it looks nice all the time, especially when it's on a 4 years old. I prefer the Thai ซิ่น (skirt) than the Jonggrabane. It will look really cute and very much lady-like. ^^

Shoes: Don't forget, try to fix that as soon as possible. You have to feel comfortable in them.

Kiran, I'll visit those sites tonight and yes Jan, the link to the site you mentioned above.

Hugs & Kisses
Jas

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hey Kiran,

Sorry, not sure how I miseed the link

http://www.898lovearea.com/31
has a ton of photos and they are photo 29 of 56 and 42 of 56.

As for bride's maid & flower girl, I do like the outfits you found but they are too dancie dance time - hahaha if that make sense. I was thinking she might be able to wear Thai Dusit style but not exactly alike and, as you said, soft colors like one in this website, if it suits. http://www.898lovearea.com/287/bridesmaids-dresses_resize

I was thinking something like http://www.phahurat.com/product-en-102880-539679-Thai+Dusit.html for the flower girl but the color just about pokes my eyes out.

Let me know your thoughts.
xxx

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Sorry Jas, I just missed you. I started writing that comment before you posted yours so it might sound like I ignored you. :-D

I agree that the Jonggrabane won't fit the occasion. It is true that a nice piece of jewellery would stand out and others are accessories so I'm happy with that. But I cannot discuss much because I'm no good at determining what jewellery would suit my dress.

At the moment, the colors we have chosen for the reception is white table cloths and napkins, white seat covers with yellow/gold sash. We are thinking of having golden/yellow and/or orange flowers. What are your thoughts? I am also planning for brides maid and flower girl to hold bouquet each, mine being white, brides maid being cream, and flower girl maybe golden/yellow or orange? Sorry if I am all over the place with my colors and hence why we are all here discussing.

time for bed

<3

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Now that I know the wedding color theme ,you chose white, yellow and gold from yours & Jason's birthday,
^^, I'd visited Jim Thompson website to have a look at the colors, I posted it up there since we cannot post them here. Have a look.

We can say that the theme color for the bride, bride's maid & the flower girl is white with tints of yellow, pink or blue, really pale ones so they will look nice with the pearl beads which is white.

Check all the necessary information on those dresses so you can decide if you want to buy or tailor made. I'm a bit worry on embroidery, it might take time.

Your wedding will be bright and happy with white, yellow orange and green. ^^ Breezy!

<3

ศศิ กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas, Jan and Kiran, I spent almost twenty minutes enjoying your discussion.
When my time comes then I can remember all of these, I can even come back to read. ^^ Good... good.

Don't forget to read Jas comment above, she even put photos of silk and jewelries for you in the open topic. What a beautiful little world.

:D

Jasmine กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan, Kiran & Sasi

Where's Kiran? Jan, I'd just sent you mail.
I would like to discuss jewelries for the Thai costume via email.

Thanks Sasi for coming in and makes me smile.

ขอบคุณนะกะค่ะที่ไปเขียนไว้ที่บ้านโน้น ไม่ยังงั้นบ้านโน้นเงียบแย่

Jasmine กล่าวว่า...

Jannie, I got really good news from Naga. She knows the places, the tailor for Thai dresses and jewelries. I'll know the budget soon which include the bride's, bride's maid and flower girl.
We can discuss about this via phone call and/or email.

Kiran กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan and Jas,

Sorry for the late reply. Been busy with receptions and we also have someone staying with us from headquarters.

Anyway, you're both right regarding the 'Jonggrabane' might not suit the occasion.

Jan - I think the colors you chose are beautiful and perfect for May!!

I saw the jewelries that Jas posted. They are all beautiful. I like the 2nd one a lot (with the pearl). Which one does everyone else like?

Jan, did you get my email with my comments & the attached file / format for the garment maker?

Off to bed now.
Good night.
Kiran xo

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi all, will be back to post comment. Kiran - yes, file received. just haven't had time to look at at all! Work getting in the way of life - hahaha.

Just an update that replies may be late tonight because we are going to look at wedding band after work.

Talk again soon <3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

The yellow & orange colors are a real wow factor. Too tired tonight, will have to wait for tomorrow to sit down and think & reply.

Luv to all.

Oh Jannie, don't forget to tell Kiran, I changed my domain name to kantongtonglom.blogspot.com.

I found a really beautiful Thai dress for bride's maid in Thsi Dusit Prayuk made of chiffon, if you want I'll posted it on top topic.

I expect your call tonight.

Really want to see the place you chose for the wedding. **

By the way, there's a rally good and elegant tailor shop for wedding nearby, please inform what I suppose to do.

I think it is similar to the photo on the top. Anyhow, we can chat tonight. <3

จัสมิน กล่าวว่า...

Yes, I had a look at the wedding dress at that website. Phone me after you talk to them. I'd been reading there and I'm sure you can make orders for Kiran and the girl as well.

Later, I can co-operate between you, Kiran and the tailor on a day-to-day basis if you want me to.

Seems like everything is falling beautifully into its place.

I'll add up some more pictures and delete some. Please have a look both you and Kiran.

The dress was made by Bride International, no tel. number, no address. All their dress are spectacular as you said.

I posted it for an inspiration for some of my writing, since you'd already made you decision. The hairstyle is similar to what you said you like & those ornaments for the ideas.

You can also visit theweddinghome.com, there you see brides in actions, really nice. There was one hairstyle with flowers garland, absolutely stunning.

Jan,

I'd talked to Paula, she really needs me to sign contract and make deposit, so what I later agree is to see all materials, talk to you, conclude everything on Monday. Then we'll go to make deposit at her place next week. She can also set up Thai ornaments and accessories. She seems to be a bit worry that you can change your mind, may be because it's a bit too expensive.

You can chat with me at Jas's or phone me tonight.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

There are a few songs that I like and I will use on the wedding day. Unfortunately, I cannot reveal exactly when it will be played :-)

เพลงรัก - ปุ๊ อัญชลี
Like rain during drought
A rainbow in the sunshine
Winter wind in April
Weakness becomes strength

Like couples in love
And finding your way
Locating your most valued article
Terrible becomes excellence
In finding you, my love
My life has new meaning

Should I give thanks, what shall I do
Nothing as valued as having found you
The love that you give; unconditional love
I knew instantly… the meaning of love.

Oh you… made me understand
The love that’s like no other
To have you be my love
My heart wants to declare

Should I give thanks, what shall I do
Nothing as valued as having found you
The love that you give; unconditional love
I knew instantly… the meaning of love.


Home ปั่น
Flowers, doors, vases, rocks and sand to large trees
Glasses, dishes, stairs, beautiful lanterns
Fences with paths, grass blades in the yard
This house will flourish only with you here

You are my strength, all that is meaningful
When you stand by me, I am without fear
Outside I’ll experience wrongdoings that wear me down
But I myself, will not fear


From the ground to the walls, it’s full of sweetness
Because I know I have you to rest my soul
Will you wait for me to provide you with comfort
I’ll lay myself down to rest in my home

No matter how much changes over time
I will have you as my hopes and support
I’m prepared to keep, sacrifice my all and do all for our home

Flowers, doors, vases, rocks and sand to large trees
Glasses, dishes, stairs, beautiful lanterns
Fences with paths, they all would like to ask
How will this home flourish without you
Because your heart is my home

Hope you enjoy <3

Absolutely beautiful!

Are these two songs you chose?

I had one suggestion, 'rocks and sand',
will it be softer to use, soil and sand or pebble and sand?

Beautiful songs are beautiful in all languages.

Hi Ladies,

Apologies for my absence. I’ve been extremely busy sorting some issues out here.

It sounds like everything is coming together beautifully. Jan, I really give it up to you for doing this in such a short time. I had 6 months to organize everything and still wish I had more time then! So, Bravo!!

Is there anything that you need from me besides my measurements? Jan, will email you the measurements tomorrow.

Love,
Kiran

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas,

I've emailed you with the measurements that I had sent to Paula. Once the deposit is made and all materials picked, I'll need to talk to you about colors of flowers for our bouquets so that I can book a florist in.

Kiran should be emailing through her measurements to me this week which I will pass on to Paula and will let you know.

luv, luv, luv

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Jannie, you got mail. I'll go see Paula today.

Hi Kiran,

I had posted the photo of the pearl necklace and earings in the open topic.
We also got traditional belt for your wedding gown two days ago. ^^
Will take photos and send via email later.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Oh, awesome. Can't wait to see the belt. I will call you maybe tonight or tomorrow night.

also, the two tickets have been booked for 11 May - 19 May <3

Jasmine กล่าวว่า...

^^

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

I've updated my jannieja blog if you want to have a look :-)

<3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Sorry haven't called. We've been doing late nights at work but I have the phone with me today so will call tonight. We are working late again today. Can't wait to chat

I hope all is well.

<3

Jasmine กล่าวว่า...

I had a look! ^^
Really nice talking to you, I hope Paula will phone me in a few days to have a look at all dresses. I shall inform you after that.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Oooooh! How exciting. I hope so too. I was thinking of calling her tomorrow to see how things are coming along. Do you think that would be a good idea?

It's good that you put that note on the top right hand corner so I know if there is a reply. I still didn't have time to send some photos over as we spoke about. Will try to do that tonight.

<3

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Jannie, have you phoned Paula?
I think if she doesn't phone me, I'll call her in a few days.
If all dresses are ready, she'll call me for sure,there's payment to make.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas <3 <3 <3

I have emailed you my address. Yes, I think you are correct that she'll definitely call as I'm sure she would want payment :-)

I did speak to her and she said she will be able to send just before or at end of month. I am guessing she may have called? I have also emailed her as I want her to use UPS instead of EMS; I have heard that the EMS tracking system has bugs. According to the UPS website, if she send it on Friday 29th April using UPS Express Saver, it will arrive to me by the 6th so that would be grrrreat. That will also mean that it will arrive in time even if it got stuck with customs as this is sometimes the case with parcels.

It's getting close. Hope your visa is on track.

luv luv luv

PS. I assume yours and Fred's wedding invitation never arrived? It has my address on that. It would be a shame if you did not receive it :-(

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Address resent directly to JD <3

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jas, so she got hold of you. When are you going to have a look at it and when will she finally post it? The sooner the better, obviously, as my only concern is it potentially taking longer for customs in Australia to clear the package because it is a parcel. <3

Getting close! Can't wait. I did a silly thing and hurt my lower back yesterday. Now I am having a hard time walking or even sitting. Oh nooo... but it's feel 50% better today so it must not be too major.

Luv

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

Hi Jan, I hope your back will be fine soon, that you will be fine soon.

Today Paula is busy with a wedding event so the appointment was postponed to Tuesday afternoon.

Tuesday, I and JD will go to the embassy for our visas, then to Paula's. I'll inform you when we're back home.


The gold belt for your dress actually will reach me Tuesday but we have to fix a new date and time.


Paula will post all dresses after our inspection, she asked for a reasonable extra postal fee and I agreed.

*** Do you want me to deliver them or let Paula send them? Which is better? Can we catch up within such a limited time? She was really late.***


We got your invitation card and keeps it well.

Take care of yourself. The wedding time is getting close but don't stress yourself. Everything is going to be fine.

Love you...

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Love you too. Missing u & can't wait!!!

<3

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

What do you see? :D

Aren't they beautiful?

The Real ones are a lot more beautiful.
I really want to hear your views on these dresses. Everyone here is absolutely happy.

The postal fee is 1000 baht per kilo, all together is a bit less than 4 kilos.

Oh, don't forget you got mail with more photos.

<3

p.s. We'll have to go back to the embassy this morning.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Oh my gosh, they are all sooooo beautiful! So simple but very elegant, soft, and flowy. I think it's perfect! Can't wait to get it!

Luv

ก้านตอง กล่าวว่า...

We came a long way since February.
These are the result of all discussions.
The wedding dress, the bridesmaid's and the girl who will hold the flowers, they are all beautiful and even more beautiful than what you see on photos.

On bridesmaid's blouse which made of Italian silk and British fine soft lace, small pearl beads, hand-pick by me, was embroiled. The real color is something between pink and orange blend together. The Skirt is soft and well-tailored. Really beautiful.

The four year old flower girl will look lovely in soft yellow Italian silk and British lace top, her skirt is same material as the Bride which can be used on 2 sides. One side is white & golden yellow Thai pattern, the other side is golden yellow with white pattern.

I'm very happy with all of them.

<3

ศศิ กล่าวว่า...

Soooo beautiful, all of them.

^^

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Yes, I can't believe how fast time flies! Only 8 days left before the day. Still quite a few things to finalize but all the main things have come together, finally. The parcel it's on it's way and has left Thailand very late on the 4th. It does not seem to have arrived here yet but I'm sure it will be here soon. Just can't wait! :)

Hi Sasi - long time no chat now that I cannot get into chatbox on jasminemoment at work. How annoying. I hope you are well. Will be sure to put up some photos for you.

Jan W กล่าวว่า...

Oh yes, and I spoke to the lady at cedar creek winery where we will have the wedding. She has confirmed that the leaves have started to turn <3
