Wedding preparation and shopping

There are many chinese customs to be carried out before the wedding ceremony. We are all modern generations and have simplified many of them but some customs are not avoidable. Not to mention there's also a lot of shopping to do, all the auspicious but tedious things to prepare.

Thanks to RedBliss that provides one-stop service of everything related to wedding, saving our time of searching and shopping. Now they are having 30%-discount-promotion so more of a reason for us to get everything we need from them.

A set used for An Chuang (install the bed) custom and the actual wedding day.

A pair of modern 'oil lamp' to be kept lighted for 3 days 3 nights, have to get Duracell batteries for that :p

Tub for bathing baby (pre-wedding, and we are talking about babies here :| ).

Sewing kit replaced the sewing machine of olden times, representing the girl (bride) is good in sewing and other needle works.

Potty set - oranges and ang pao to be placed inside and sealed with red paper. A young boy to be asked to break the paper to get the oranges and red packet on the wedding day representing the couple giving birth to boys (not only babies, and must be boys :| ).

Anyway, being a chinese, I'm sure this a journey that every married couple went through, so I shall not complain too much and just comply.

The sales girl reminded us a lot on how/where to place, what to do with those things. So many rules~ I hope I can remember all of them.
