Went over to Chinatown with Mr. Keir and Mama to check out if there's any suitable Chinese Customary Wedding items for us..
and here are some of the loots...
There're tons of shops selling traditional chinese wedding items at Chinatown market or Chinatown complex as it's commonly known as.
It's the market nearest to CK departmental store.
They've plenty of wedding bedsheets to choose from with prices as low as $30++ for a simple bedsheet set to $60+ for a silk wedding bed sheet.
We didn't really want the traditional wedding bedsheet cos you'll probably only use it for a while. So we got a white based floral bedsheet as our wedding bedsheet. At least we can still use it after the wedding.
Hmm not sure if this is considered reasonably priced, didn't take a picture of our bedsheet cos Mr. Keir kept it in a rather inaccessible area as soon as we got back..Zzzz.
Anyway we'll need a plain based bedsheet cos our bedframe is read. Most wedding bedsheets are red and it's gona look awful on our bed frame.
Here's our storage bedframe!
Love the swaroski crystals on the headboard..hehz..gives it a classy feel...
The bed sheet we bought was 450 thread count, comes with quilt cover as well an it costs us $90.
Bought the comforter at $30 => gave us $10 discount so total = $120.
Still cheaper than robinsons i guess...
to give our bed that extra "wedding" kind of feel, we bought the pair of cushion above for $26.
THe wedding ang pows there average about $1.30 - $1.80 for the bigger pieces...and ooh i bought the wedding lamps online from another bride for only $10..ahaha...cos u probably only gona use it on your wedding day. not looking at spending too much for such stuffs.
As you can see, we try to simplify the traditional stuffs as much as possible.
So we only bought
- wedding cushion (shown above)
- few packs of wedding ang pow packets (shown above)
- Red umbrella with frills ($10)
- Wedding stickers ($1.80 each)
- "wedding" bedsheet
