OK, ok, promise this is the last installment of wedding photos. Can’t help it because if you Google ‘Cyberview wedding’, you get 5xmom somewhere in the top five search. 🙂
WuChing asked if we can wear blacks to wedding? Technically speaking, ehe, no. Especially not to Chinese traditional wedding where the couples are Taoists. The family will probably chase you away with broom and strewn salt and rice to get rid of the bad luck.
But my nephew and his wife are Christians, so I figured out that no one bothers. Moreover, the dinner banquet is a black and white affair. I even garbed my two kids in all black and my toddler too wore a black pants with dark blue shirt. The Cyberview Lodge has the rustic, cottage look, no?
This is the banquet hall decorated with white plum blossom. What I like about this wedding is the punctuality. Things start on the dot and dinner is finished by 10.30 pm. There are no loud karaoke or drunkard apeks (old men) who sing ‘Yeh Lai Siang’. Only a very sweet voice girl sang some lovely songs, a thank you speech by the couple, the mandatory yamseng (toast), cake cutting and champagne popping.
The table setting with fresh bouquets on every table and path ways. There aren’t any tacky, skin-crawling food presentation except for a short, simple one. We had one waiter per table who changes all the chinas after every meal. Wine glasses, whiskey and brandy were filled instanteously. Hic, hic.
All in all, it was a sweet ceremony. I did not take too many photos of the food because I don’t want to appear jakun with a DSLR camera and snapping furiously at every dishes.
Now I am guilty of promoting lavish wedding ceremonies. Guys are going to curse me for planting that kind of ideas on their girlfriends.
