    agree with miyabi

    dates wise, filter our the qing ming + hungry ghost festival period...pretty much 2 months wiped off the slate....unless both your families r not the pantang one

    weekends r always hot dates to select, so gotta have a few dates in mind when you and your partner go down to site recee/attend the hotel wedding roadshows...whether the place got pillars/unblocked view does make a difference...

    during the course of planning with my wife-to-be, we tot we r kiasu but there r other couples who r even more ahead than us even though they r getting married in end 2013 or early 2014...

    1. Get auspicious dates from the geomancer (optional: cos depends whether both parties' parents are superstitious)
    2. Once u get hold of the dates, you can go forth with searching for the hotels based on whether ur AD falls on weekday/weekend,
    a rough estimation of how many tables (whether sufficient to meet with min. tables required by the Hotel).
    3. Find the Bridal Studio (whether you prefer local studio or overseas photoshoot)
    4. Look for your AD pg/vg. Or unless the ones u intend to hire are very popular, perhaps u can move it to up priority (2) or (3) first.

    Hope this helps.

    Mine didn't propose to me too~ he says nowadays people don't really propose anymore. So i can say byebye to my romantic proposal since we took a huge leap for our flat.

    I wanted to start planning for 2014 wedding, coz I don't like to leave it to last minute, get more stress etc...

    but HTB says I'm too kan cheong, I'm making him stress

    so i'm doing the planning by myself 1st...make it easier for him i guess

    btw, he hasn't propose to me yet...& he even ask me if proposal must have a diamond ring...LOL

    but i suppose taking small steps to plan is always better than leaving all till very late...stress build up + last min to activate any contingency plan etc...

    i would rather have both BTB + HTB to do the planning together as part of bonding too...at least i am glad me and my fiancee r doing together...Also Can Strengthen Relationship too :P

    i planning in early 2015 also start planning already..so you are not kan cheong..
    cos i think need to plan budget and make sure we got enough money when the time comes..so plan early is good..

    HTB also havent propose but we already booked taiwan pre-wedding PS and AD BS..
    after he propose and we can go to geomancer for auspicious dates and start looking around for banquets..
    but i see the price of banquets increase so much yearly..feel a bit sian..haiz..marry later means more expensive..

    Ya I talked to my HTB so that he understands how I feel We will start to look for geomancer after the 7th mth, then look around for banquets & BS...
    I think these 2 are the most headaches...too many choices.

    my HTB has propose yet but we already went to buy the proposal ring I can see that he made alot of efforts to get the ring I really like.

    YES! Everything is so expensive!

    bear in mind tht the banquet pricing will be subject to yearly adjustment...so perhaps you and your partner have 1 place in mind already + the perks r ok for both of you = go for it and secure the dates early!

    Its very important having a "intended date" to get married and booking the hotel that you want.
    I fixed my wedding date pretty late and my dream hotel is booked on my wedding date.....bummer....
