Hong Kong - Wedding Central Part II

I stay in an area of Hong Kong called Kowloon. It's across Victoria Harbour from downtown Hong Kong. The area is closer to my appointments and to modes of transportation in and out of mainland China. It's slightly less crowded than the Hong Kong side too.

Yesterday I hit an area of Kowloon called Tsim Sha Tsui that is a bargain shopping mecca. Actually, in recent years it's gotten a little more expensive, but it's an area I love to walk around in. There's a bridal block that I browsed around yesterday. The shops weren't open yet, but I got some window display shots.

How about THIS bridesmaid dress?

I love this necklace!

I love this one too! I actually went back after the store opened and asked them the price. It was HK$790, or about US$110.

I stopped in a shoe store and looked around. I found these adorable shoes that I totally would have purchased if they'd had my size. They were only US$20 or so and they were like walking on little clouds! Loved them! They were a half size too small. :(


After walking around for a while, it was starting to get disgustingly humid. The shops were opening and more people were on the streets and it just was getting to be gross and crowded with tourists and I wanted to get back to my own "neighborhood." I popped into the Sheraton hotel to catch a cab back to my hotel and saw a freshly married couple in their get-away car. Here's the car decoration!


And here's the happy couple!
Note the bride in traditional Chinese garb. She was most likely married in a Western white gown. Also note the groom holding the bouquet. When I had left my hotel on my way out that morning, there was a groom and his groomsmen posing for pictures (I would have snapped some photos, but to do so I would have to have been majorly obnoxious and I opted out of that) and the groom also had a bouquet. It was also lavender like this one, so I'm wondering if there's some significance. I need to try to find out. Quirky, eh?

That yellow gown? Probably a wedding gown. I think a "white wedding" is a Western thing and some Chinese brides still like to don the most garish dresses!

I've told you about the wedding gown packages we have in Singapore right? If people weren't so designer driven here, I think it'd make a really good business to start!! If I haven't told you, remind me to when you get back.

Miss your face! Glad you're having fun and still finding the time to blog!

Ok I so would love to have the necklace that's in the second picture! Not like I'd have anything or anyplace to wear it but oh.my.gosh! Those shoes are too cute! Maybe you can check back before you leave and see if they have your size?
