Apparently Nil will need a Single Status letter from the French Embassy here in KL together with his passport and a passport-sized photograph. We will not be able to fill in the forms on our own since the forms will have to be filled in there and then, then put up on this board. Then we’ll have to wait for about three weeks before we can go sign the papers at the RoM. That would be that we’ll be getting hitched earliest middle of June…and no, I still don’t have a damn date.
On his end, I’ll have to show up at the French Embassy twice – once before I sign the papers and again after I sign the papers – and gawd only knows how I’ll be able to cope with the forms which will all be in French. GAH!
I’ve joined a local forum for brides and made up a wedding website for the whole experience (although I’m toying with the idea of migrating everything onto a subdomain here BUT the hyperlink would be oh-so-weird). The forum was a good idea – it was definitely an eyeopener to a lot of things and great for getting more info from other brides-to-be. The website is still under construction simply because I need Nil’s help in getting it set up but the design will be that – it would look nice on the wedding invites that I plan to make for the dinner in 2008.
I have a couple of ideas for the dinner itself, like getting the guests to participate rather than just sit and eat…but I’ll have to discuss this with Nil once he comes although honestly, he probably thinks I’m nuts, planning this early. Can’t be helped since my mum keeps bombarding me with stuff about bridal shoots and weddings plans.
So from between now till the actual RoM, I have heaps of paperwork, bridal studios (studios) to check out and a wedding exhibition to attend.
