Wedding Cards and Gifts

Wednesday, 16 February 2005

Han and I took the day off on Valentine’s to do a spot of shopping at 1U--we bought, among other things, a very decent blender and an eye-catching piece of cabin luggage (its polycarbonate casing is mostly silver).

We also paid a visit to a little shop called Sunflower located in the basement section which links Ikano and Ikea to source for ideas on what to do for our wedding invitations. We like a few of their designs but we’ll be scouting around for better prices--Han thinks that they’re a little dear. They’ve got a pleasantly wide selection of premiums for wedding guests too, ranging from potpourri sachets and little corrugated cardboard boxes, to chopsticks and miniature wooden tiffin carriers. The owner is a chirpy round man (a pharmacist by training) who is obviously passionate about this business of his, and didn’t hesitate to toss around ideas (though I think he would have done better to pay more attention to what we had in mind already, and then only approach us with his thoughts).

Anyway, at least we’ve got a quote on the cost for printing already. It will take them 3-4 weeks to have the cards all printed and ready for posting, and they’ll need about 3 months to make sure that they have a sufficient supply of chopsticks (if we decide to go ahead with that as our gift for guests--we're budgeting for 400 pairs!). We plan to have the designs finalized by the end of March so we can submit them for printing, then we should have the cards ready by April.
