My Bridal Boutique Hunting ....

I start my boutique hunting after he had confirm our solemnization date...and for the very first time he stayed overnight at my famili house due to my mom request ...she said she wants to know him dgn lebih rapat ...I still remembered the moment my dad told me about my mom special request I am so surprise ..rase pelik pun ade...when I told him die pun ade rase reluctant ngan my mom punye request ..sometimes I think my mom ni so unpredictable ...but everything turns out well...seronok tengok my dad and dia berborak rancak ...ade juga teman my dad untuk borak... tak boleh lupa bile I masak bihun goreng masin for our breakfast...tapi dia and my sisters tetap makan sampai licin ...

Ingat tak ..in my previous entry I want my wedding to be in baby blue...so I ingat I nak pakai baby blue songket on my wedding day nanti ...with that in my mind my famili, dia and I start our mission around Shah Alam area...PKNS Shah Alam, Alam Sentral and SACC Mall...these places were very popular with it's wedding boutique ...that's what I know from Majalah Pengantin yang lately menjadi Majalah wajib beli bulan-bulan..

From one boutique to another ... I still couldn't find any ready made baby blue songket...most of them said if I really want to have that songket they can do it for me but I have to pay extra cost for that ....not really my favor to do so ..plus it's hard to find the kind of pelamin that I want ...most boutique offering package with old design pelamin ...my mom pun tak berape suka sangat ...so we just look around and get quotation first ...before we make our move to SACC mall...I saw this one small but exclusive boutique ...takut jugak nak masuk tanya sbb mesti price dier mahal ...bile masuk je boutique tu my famili like so excited tengok a dress in a grey tone and silver beading ...sangat cantik okay ...baju-baju die sangat cantik ...but I stick with my plan nak pakai baby blue songket so I ask the SA...they dont have ..kecewa lagi ...then she showed me the promotion package they have ...and I ask her what kind of pelamin dier offer ...lepas je she showed me I dah rase excited ..it's the kind that I want ...she said it is a new design and it comes with a fresh flower ...then I tanye die warna songket yang die ade ....then she showed me this white kebaya songket bunga tabur with lace ...sangat cantik okay ..she told me its new ..baru je siap ..baju lelaki pon tak siap lagi ....so if I take this promotion package i'll get new pelamin design comes with fresh flowers + new baju songket + mekap + fresh flower hand bouquet...so tempting ...but I let her know that I need a gurl to do my make-up then she said if I want then I have to book early sbb mekap artis pompuan tak ramai ....adusshhh kene balik pikir ni ...and revise my bajet back ...dah lari sangat ni if I want to book them sbb my mom want me to have salin-salin baju traditional la plak ....which I need to pay extra more sbb package yang die offer pun dah memang cukup-cukup my bajet ....

I dah rase malas nak jalan-jalan tgk boutique lagi...but my famili said they want to check SACC mall plak ....mane la tau kat situ ade boutique yang lagi best ke kan ...but we take a rest first and had our meal kat Kuew Teow Doli ...sedap !! ..kalo you all singgah kat Alam Sentral jangan lupe singgah ye ..they have gelas bapak also ...hee

Balik je rumah I terus tengok my bajet and draft option that I have with all boutique yang menjadi pilihan ...memang terlebih bajet ...so I seek approval from my CFO a.k.a my dad ..yeay!! lepas...so now I confirm nak amek:-

1. 3 baju persalinan - Masella Collection (they have baju persalinan yang cantik and cater for gurl bertudung like me)

2. Resepsi - Wazira Collection (New baju songket putih bunga tabur + New pelamin with fresh flower + Mekap + Fresh flower hand bouquet)

Then the next Monday I pergi lagi Alam Sentral and booked. Alhamdulillah legaa....next big thing catering and canopy .....

The Moment I Want to Say Something .....

So many things to update actually since my preparation for the wedding still progressing ...I just dont have the time and dont know where to start ..pening ...as you can see from the checklist banyak yg dah siap kan ...hehee...padahal wedding ticker says I still have about 7 months to go ...masih banyak waktu I guess..consider banyak bende dah siap coz all the major thing dah booked so far ...left only the small things which has to be done one step at a time along the way ....luckily i booked now all the pelamin, baju, and mekap artis sbb by the time I nak book seems ramai jugak bride to be yang hari langsungnye at the end of the year dah datang booked...everytime I come to their boutique first thing they ask was when ..haha...ye la kalo bulan 6 baru now nak book memang la they all reject ....full house sumenye ...

owhh yaa ..new things on the blog is my wedding ticker ....just to keep me alert on how much time left for me to prepare for the wedding ..resource: miss Nurul from Spread My Happiness ..sape lagi la tempat saye nak jadikan rujukan if it is not her .....and macam pelik bride to be blog without wedding ticker

I received good news from si dia ..he just found a perfect new home for us to stay after we get married nanti ..I am so surprise and so please when he told me that ...and tak pernah terbayangkan that we gonna have our own house this early InsyaAllah...coz right now he's been looking for the best banker for us to commit with .....if we manage to buy the house then i need to remind myself that i cannot indulge myself secara membuta tuli sebab financially sangat stress sekarang ...with the wedding and new house plus long distance relationship which involve you with a lot of expenses ....and i do know that newly weds have to go through this tough period ....and may He always with us to walk through the journey as husband and wife with patience and love .....

Hand Bouquet Dilemma ...

Okay .. I want a hand bouquet for my Nikah nanti ..but dunno yet whether want to ask florist to do it for me or do on my own ..still serving my observation ...kalo buat sendiri jimat cost kan ...right now sedang mencari cara-cara untuk buat hand bouquet sendiri and I come across these two article which I think very useful for me and I hope for you also readers ....

Point taken from weddingdecor steps:
  • Make simple hand-tied bouquet is the easiest design
  • Practice first with artificial flowers - maybe boleh cuba guna bunga lebihan mase buat hantaran tunang dulu
  • Best to stick to one type of flower so the stem will be at the same length and no actual flower arranging skills necessary - memang sesuai la for me yang tak pernah buat hand bouquet ni kan ...kalo tidak mesti terkebil-kebil nak arrange flower camner..hehe
  • Small bouquet for the more petite bride will require approximately 25-30 stems - haaa...akulah tu ..heee
  • Use ribbon which is 3x length of the stem
...and tips from wedding.theknot - it's best to make the bouquet the morning of the wedding

....for me to understand better the instructions I come across this video "How To Make Hand-Tied Bridal Bouquet" kat http://www.ehow.com/ ...tapi kat website ni ade banyak DIY stuff if you explore more  ..which I thinks it is all really good stuff ....

Now I'm in dilemma ..should I go for the common rosses or gerber daisy which is my favourite flower ...aduishhh ...mane yang cantik yer ...some example on both bile tanye same google ...

Beautiful Daisies


Sweet ...


for bright color ...


......hot pink



...for soft pastel colors ...saye memang suke pastel !!...



...for colorful effect ...cantik kan ....

and,

Beautiful Roses



..fuschia pink i think so ...



...a combination of pink , yellow and cream....

...and how about the combination of both ...



..i heart this ...

....another example but this time rose + gerber daisy + calla lilies ...



...sangat cantik ...


...for a combination of soft purple pink...

I think u might have guess what color I want right ...hehe...pink to match with my baby blue nikah outfit ...

When I Decided It's Gonna Be Baby Blue ...

Here goes my googling and look what I have found ...

The Bedroom



surprisingly came across this malay wedding in baby blue but i prefer to wear songket during my reception coz i want it to be classic and have a traditional touch


the combination of baby blue and yellow look so sweet kan ?

another option of having blue theme for my wedding ..tiffany blue and white ..i love this color combination ..


another example of tiffany blue combination

...an idea for my wedding favor ...mane la nak dapat kipas with this kind of color ...any idea ?


...since my mother want to make it back to basic like malay wedding dulu-dulu giving an egg as wedding favor maybe this kind of box would be perfect kan ..tapi muat ke ?
