First Post! The intro

Hi there! I’m Angie and I’ve started this blog to mark the start of a new beginning, and share with you my experiences in planning both the Korean and American wedding. The year 2012 has been a year of much changes for me and I can barely keep up! My career’s been finally kicking off after graduating from my masters program, I am happily engaged to my wonderful fiance D, and I’m moving far far away! We’ll be tying the knot in Seoul, Korea, we’ll have another American-style reception in Orange County, California (where I grew up), and after that, we will be flying with one-way ticket to Singapore! Map check. Singapore? What? Never in million years thought I’d move there. In any event, we’ll kick off our new married life in the land of the Merlion for a happily ever after.

I’ve gotten so many questions on which venues and services I’m using for my Korean and American wedding ceremony, so I thought I’d share it with you by creating this blog because I, too, have found so many useful information from other bloggers in my own planning process. Both Korean and American blogs out there are filled with so much information and I hope that I can also be resourceful to some. I was a research associate & project manager in my previous job, so I guess this is where my planning nazi-ness comes from. I hope that in the process of researching and sharing my experiences on this blog, I will capture the big and small joys that these upcoming events and changes will bring me. Thanks for reading!

    Hey there! First, congrats for your coming wedding! I guess it’s hectic period now:) I just discovered randomly your blog when I was researching on the web. Am from HK and try to find out cheap deals (photoshoot+bridal gowns rental+make up) for Korean pre-wedding studios. As you know, language is one of my biggest concerns but I don’t trust our local HK agents. Any recommendations? Me and my bf love the Korean style (simple and elegant:)! We’d plan to fly to Korea some time in November. I’d appreciate your help, please email me the contact persons if you have good recommendations (English speaking;)

      Hi Kate, so sorry for the late reply! I’ve been so busy in Korea I haven’t had a chance to look at my blog. I’m actually not sure when it comes to English speaking Koreans who can helping with the wedding stuff. THe best way is probably to find a Korean friend who can get a good Korean planner and translate for you, because even as a Korean it’s hard to negotiate and find what you exactly want. Most wedding vendors have their own strict rules and requirements which is difficult and confusing for even Koreans to understand. Sorry I can’t be of much help! Good luck!
