Wedding Props n' Decorations { Flowers }

Hi all. Happy Monday. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. My weekend was pretty much a roller coaster ride. My fiance and I had a serious talk about our wedding, budgets, guest lists and so on. I was pretty stressed out even planning a very small intimate wedding. If you have some tips about planning a stress-free wedding, PLEASE do share!!

I'm preparing props for the wedding. I love props and I think they make photos look lively :) Here are some of the lovely props I really like.

I love bicycles! Even cuter in red!

Shop n' Promotions { Website! }

I'm really happy to announce that I bought a domain name a few days ago. Yep, that's right. From now on you can access to my shop on www.cocoachuchu.com and it will link directly to my etsy shop.

I haven't thought about buying hosting site yet, but it's really tempting. Oh, and I'm launching new jewelry series, coming soon later this month. Here is a sneek peek and a new item in the shop :)

Thanks so much for your support. Have a wonderful weekend!

Fabulous finds { March favorites }

I can't decide what shoes I'm going wear on my big day. I was planning to wear something white or silver with glitters, but on the other hand, I want to wear shoes that fit my personality and something I could wear after the wedding.

I have these four choices on my mind, so far I'm leaning towards the first one the top. My fiance says NO NO to the navy pumps (but I love it!). What kinds of shoes did you (or planning to) wear on your wedding day? love to share? By the way, isn't the Anthropologie dress perfect for picnic date in the park?

Le Dress is here!

After I blogged about wedding dresses, I did some serious hunt for my perfect wedding dress. I did some research both online and offline. I also looked for used wedding dresses, but I couldn't find anything my size.

I specially look for ones under budget, so BCBG came into mind. I went to Vaughan mills mall because it has a BCBG outlet (although it took me almost 2 + 1/2 hours to get there!). I tried on this dress because I like the loose and relax style, but it didn't do anything for me at all. It even made me look shorter. I'm only 5'3!

BCBG Strapless Silk Gown

Then I tried this dress and immediately fell in love with it.

BCBG Laser Cut Satin Gown

I didn't really like it while looking at the photo on the model, but it looked amazing in person. It has a sweetheart neckline and it hugs my curves really well. But the problem was they didn't have the dress in white, instead they had it in PINK. So, I came home, did some searching and was sooo happy to find out that Nordstrom carries BCBG and will ship oversea, yay!!

I received my wedding dress last week and was very happy with it. Here is my version of the dress. I'm not ready to show my face yet :)

Sunday Brunch { Eh Wa Korean Restuarant }

I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. I watched ice hockey, Canada Vs. USA yesterday. It was such a good game! People were screaming and honking everywhere after Canada won. I also watched the Olympic closing ceremony. Canada won 14 gold medals!!! How awesome!!! My favorite Olympic sports were Ice Dance and Figure skating. What were yours?

By the way, I tried out a new Korean restaurant around uptown. I walked by there pretty often, but never got a chance to eat there.

This restaurant is called Eh-Wa. I love Korean food. It tastes good and healthy, plus it is spicy which I really like :)

My friend's veggie bibimbum.

My soon dubu soup and purple rice....what a colorful bowl!

Side dishes...yum
