my hubby and i just got married on may 12! we had a simple wedding with registration in the morning and dinner buffet reception at conrad. really glad that though we didn't have any rundown or programme, everything went quite smooth in the end. Very Happy

here's what we had for the day, for information and reference to anyone here planning for a simple wedding as well:

btw we were already living together and we didn't have any 接新娘games. we also didn't have any bridesmaids or groomsmen. Wink

morning: 一齊返老爺奶奶家拜祖仙
1 pm: make-up for the bride
2.30 pm: 向老爺奶奶 & my parents"針"茶
3 pm: left home for registration
3.45 pm: registration at city hall
4 pm: group photo at city hall
5 pm: arrived at conrad hotel (and some guests start mahjong playing!)
5.15 pm: photo (w/ just the two of us) at hk park
6 pm: returned to conrad hotel for make-up
6.30 pm: guests started to arrive at conrad
7.15 pm: started serving buffet dinner (because we had lots of kids and didn't want them to starve)
8 pm: all guests nearly arrived and we officially opened the dinner with a short speech and toast (we didn't have any march-in or cake-cutting ceremony)
9.30 pm: guests started to leave
10.30 pm: we left too and arrived home before 11 pm! Very Happy

we must say that the food and service at conrad was really quite good. we only had 6 tables and our location was hennessy room which is quite cozy. since we didn't have too many guests, nobody needed to queue up at all. we didn't have any movie/games/lucky draw during the dinner but we did go around each table to make a toast (with just the two of us, not with our parents) and chatted with our guests. luckily no one complained that it was too boring.

looking back, we think it's actually good that we started serving the buffet early and didn't wait till all guests arrived. the guests might be bored if they could only wait until the dinner was served.

i had my wedding gown from afternoon onwards and changed into an evening gown during the dinner reception.

Hi all,

I will have a western style wedding as well. I will have the church ceremony overseas in Feb and hold the lunch buffet in Hong Kong in Apr.

I am now also wondering how to arrange the lunch buffet better.

hi all,

yes, i hv diff. type of agenda for chinese wedding...but not for western
style / lunch buffet....
also i hv no idea of how to arrange the registration ceremony.
we hv no mahjong arranged for the guests, so if ask them come a bit
earlier to join "eatch" our registration ceremony, i think its a hard job.
also i dont want the guests think its "mo liu"......
how can i arrange the guests' arrival time and can let them to "watch" us march-in and registration lei?
also how can i put the right words on the invitation card lei?
ask the guests to come at a specific time or just tell them we will hv
registration ceremony n the buffet is starting at xxpm.....?
gals, do u hv any suggestions for me lei?

thanks!

nice to meet you all here.

ceiggam, i'm not really sure of the wording, but i guess you should specify a time for the wedding ceremony to take place, e.g. 2 pm. nowadays more and more people will have the ceremony at the hotel venue and i'm sure that the card printing company will be able to give you advice on the proper wordings.

i was lucky that my friend who's a partime MUA helped me do the make-up on that day. and really glad that it was really natural and what i wanted exactly. and our photographer was also a friend's friend. Very Happy

hi hana,

congratulations!!
it's so good u have a simple and smooth wedding!

我都想個婚禮簡簡單單,我男友已經讓左步話搞個cocktail或者lunch buffet (佢本身係鐘意擺酒嗰d人);但係似乎想叫佢再讓多步唔駛接新娘(起碼唔玩甚麼接新娘遊戲),同埋喺個banquet上唔好播甚麼video/slideshow佢已經唔願 Confused

哈,我d朋友咪笑我地好似男女角色大兜亂咁咯
但係我男友鐘意擺酒呢d野唔代表佢會好active咁搵資料
重擔都係落左喺我身上
所以唯有盡量sell佢做d我肯做o既野
咁樣做o既時候條氣會順d :p

你地大囍日子幾時呀?
我有排呀,07/10/27
所以仲睇緊酒店場地
