Our Kids Party Themed Military Wedding!

What happens when you cross a kids party planner with a wedding planner?

Read on to find out what happened at our first ever Happier wedding party! Everything was planned and executed in-house end to end. It was a real challenge last October. I had to plan this in the midst of starting up my second business SchoolGuide.Asia, handling our halloween face painting peak season as well as hubby’s absence for his military exercises.
But it was a very gratifying one because everything was entirely DIY-ed. Made from scratch with love.
That once in a lifetime experience that we just wanna celebrate with our family and closest friends. 🙂

All these wouldn’t have been possible without my “enthu mama” bridesmaids, JS’s “gangho” groomsmen and our sporting family members and friends! We had so many highlights in our dinner programme that an entire song and dance segment from my dearest buddies from Music & Dance Society from junior college had to be cut out. But thanks so much guys!!
You all are simply the best!!

Here’s the start to our big kids party of the year! Party for big kids! :p Starting with waking up blurry face at 5am in the morning to be turned into a white princess. It’s nice to be on the other side of the chair for once. 🙂

Because it was none other than the groom who found my room keys in a tiny bottle of cat food.

6pm! We’re all setup for the dinner banquet!
We searched the island for the best of both worlds – a casual garden setting yet weather proof at the same time.
And we found a gem!
