My brides, my friends....

Today, I received a small package from the mail, and when I opened up and saw the Hello Kitty stickers, I smiled, it was from one of my ex-brides, Nicole from Dec 07. She just started her hobby in accessories making, and she made a pair of ear rings for me... When I saw the way it was crafted, the colours, I was touched. Nicole has known me enough to create something I like.. Simple and Elegant. It was definitely something I would love to wear... and strangely ever since I designed her wedding, from someone who doesn't like Hello Kitty, I actually bought a Hello Kitty doll for myself from Japan. Amazing, isn't it...Somehow, over these past years, my brides have become my friends, and an influence to me as well.

As a planner, I am privileged to get close to the bride's dreams, her thoughts and sometimes her private life. And often, these relationships complete my role as a planner. Though I am a planner that consistently seek for creative ideas, unique setup, and beautiful details... it is not the creative works that made my day.. it was the friendship I have received over the years that help me to believe in what I do.

Last Mon, I had lunch with another bride, we were sharing and exchanging our thoughts.. I then realised I opened up so much about my life that I almost forgot I am the consultant :) Life is amazing, it's the people you meet and befriend that makes you who you are. And I am one of such for sure... I was talking to Hari and he was right to remind me : We may at times wonder why we meet certain clients... yet at the same time, when we received clients that are so unexpected, so thoughtful, so gracious... they do seize our wondering.. We thank God, we have the best job, to do what we love and what we believe in... and to even be blessed with friends in the midst of it, it was a precious gift from God.
