Unlike most conventional Chinese weddings, Gerra opted for a Western sit-down dining at Skyve. And just like her fun personality, everything about her wedding was unconventional and loud. The keyword here is "over the top" and boy were most of the guests so spontaneous! Almost everyone followed the disco, retro, loud and colourful theme.
I only decided on the 60s A-go-go style on the morning itself when I found out that my bling blue dress looked weird on me, my long ponytail wig was nowhere to be found and my hair was in a total mess. I decided to wear the Valentino Circle Dress which I've only worn once during last year's Chinese New Year because the flare circle skirt with bright yellow and loud prints has slight reminiscence to the 60s Agogo style. That's me with Zanne who went by the Disco theme.
My nails were painted haphazardly that morning with Estee Lauder in Pink Fever which fortunately matched the earrings that Zanne had lent me that day. The 3rd picture in the collage is the wedding corsage for 姊妹 (bridesmaids) which was hand-made by Gerra.
I wanted those big messy hair and hence my hair was done in a side updo with pouffy fringe.
The complete look!
I brought along a nerd for my date. Hubby had long wanted to go as a nerd. He was more prepared than me when he bought a pair of suspenders the previous day. As for his fake lensless glasses, he has been wearing them on and off ever since he bought it from a poor old man peddling goods. Kh often wears them just to look intellectual or whenever I'm also in glasses.
We went slightly earlier to help with the decorations.
Those beautiful pinwheels were made by Gerra. As usual, creativity oozes in her veins.
Um... we all looked like we did not know what to do in this photo...
But I swear we did a decent job in decorating the reception table.
For most Chinese weddings held at hotel ballrooms, ang pow boxes are clearly indicated for the bride and the groom. Guests of either side should drop their ang pows into the correct box. Gerra and Clement only had one ang pow box. Now we know that money doesn't matter to them or does it?
Guests were encouraged to hashtag #gocrazy and #discolove for photos uploaded onto social media.
This was how the outdoor buffet set-up looked like.
The word "DISCO" would not even give a clue that Skyve's private event that evening was a wedding.
The interior decor by day...
The interior decor by night...
This was Gerra's wig that day. A blend of pink and blonde. Ooh la la... Have you ever seen a Chinese wedding like this before?
Gerra and Clement have 2 pre-wedding albums. One of which is the movie-set album.
The front cover of the movie set album features Clement the Late Groomer.
The back features Gerra the Bride to be.
Everything inside is just so fun and cool! Here's sharing with all of you their album. (Pages might not be in order).
A Lot Like Love
The 5 Year Engagement
Bonnie and Clyde
The Bounty Hunter
We Bought a Zoo (The guinea pig belongs to them.)
The Hunger Games
Crazy Stupid Love
My Sassy Girl
Confessions of a Shopaholic
My favourite pictures from the whimsical album are these two.
And this. Love the whole feel and their expressions here. Reminds me of the movie In the Mood for Love in contemporary times.
Part 1 of this post features the pre-wedding detail shots and Part 2 would feature the wedding dinner itself.
The bride says, "Stay tuned for Part 2!"
