M&S Bridal Staycation

Salam ladies! Wow, I haven’t been on WordPress for soooo long! So many things have happened but they are not related to the wedding at all. Wedding preparations have been pretty stagnant – undoubtedly so. At the moment, we are a couple of days shy from the two years mark and it’s pretty exciting! Z has also been more involved in his vendor search. It’s nice to see him being more involved with the wedding. Hehe.

Anyway, two of my girlfriends are getting married soon so the girls and I planned a surprise staycation for them.  We booked a room at Marina Mandarin and we were greeted with one of the best views in Singapore.

Here’s our view from the highest floor of Marina Mandarin, with some Fluff Bandung cupcakes to boot!

 

The bed was pretty comfy too!

 

I have started drinking coffee (and relying on it!!!) since I started going out with Z, so this was indeed nice to have!

 

We decorated the room just for M & S!

 

My favourite girls, missing a few others who came later / could not make it.

These girls are indeed very special to me. We met in NUS and most of us went for the orientation camp organized by NUS Muslim Society and PBMUKS when we were 19 (that was in 2019!!!). We grew close and we call each other the “Fillah Girls” because we aim to grow closer to each other and be better individuals for the sake of Allah. It’s really surreal to see us grow up and entering the next phase in life. I’m really happy for M & S, mashaAllah. They really deserve all the happiness in the world!

Really glad that the bridal party was a success! We definitely had fun stuffing ourselves with food and talking and eating and laughing and all that jazz. It’s hard to meet often now that we are working, so when you put 9 of us  girls (missing 1 of us who was working) in a room together, it can get really kecoh!!

Can’t wait for the wedding in December and January! Hehe. Also, Z and I attended a wedding of a dear friend whom I met in JC and did a few school attachment with together on Saturday. Congrats Nadya & Aman! Really happy for you! Also, I fell heads over heels with the decor!

 

Look at that pelamin! No prizes for guessing who’s the Decor Vendor!

When I told Z that I got the same vendor for decor, I think the simple guy in him was shocked beyond words. Hehe. Can’t wait to see how mine will materialize when it’s finally our time! InshaAllah all will go well!

Now, it’s time for me to relax a little bit more than usual because it’s the holidays, guys! Hehe.

Here’s to more wedding weekends before I fly off! Till then!

Love, A

Here’s a Quick One!

Hello, hello, hello! Hehe. I’ve been so caught up with packing my things at work (my school’s shifting) and attending weddings that I haven’t found the time to blog! I’ll make this a quick one with some updates.

  1. Decor booked! So who did I choose in the end? Make a guess! I’ll update on the decor in the next few entries, InshaAllah! (Clues: drapes and fresh flowers!)
  2. Photobooth booked! I know it’s a tad too early to be booking my photobooth vendor but I figured I wanted everything settled as early as possible to secure the good prices and my date. Anyways, my wedding, my way right? Hehe. (I was quite selective about this (what’s new?) because I wanted photostrips and a real booth-y feeling. Thank god I wasn’t crazy enough to be spending more than a thousand dollars on a photobooth even though the bookmark photostrips are gojesss.)
  3. Thinking of doing a DIY series on this blog since a really good friend of mine and I will be embarking on some sort of a DIY adventure for her upcoming wedding in 2016 InshaAllah. We talked about it briefly and we thought of DIY wedding shoes, money boxes, bridal rooms, gubahan trays, decor and whathaveyous. In fact, she was 1/3 of my Craftfairies for my engagement in September. She’s so crafty! Me, not so much. But I’ve got loads of fancy ideas! Hehe. Tell me what you girls think on this ya!
  4. I’ve finally designed the  invitation cards for my best friend from secondary school. She will be having a simple Solemnization ceremony soon and she (together with her fiancé) helped to take beautiful photos during The A to Z Engagement so I thought I wanted to do something nice for them. Will be posting photos of the designs InshaAllah and with that said, yes friends, you can start booking me to design your wedding cards! Hehe!
  5. I’m so unhappy with the service and treatment I got from Tampines Printing. Omg rude staff they have! To be honest, I don’t mind that they are a bit on the pricey end of the printing spectrum but for last minute printing jobs (and usually of quality from past experiences) I would always recommend my friends to print stuff here. And I’ve always had good experience with the staff until today. You DO NOT ask someone to change her design to fit your printing criteria. What sort of logic is that? Also, yes I know you guys print in 100s. But I’m sure you can print an extra 5 copies at an additional cost right??? Even if you can’t, there’s no reason to be acting so rude and sassy. Didn’t even bother saying thank you after paying because I was fuming mad. Astaghfirullah. I’m trying to tell myself it’s just a one off event that will not happen again. 

Okay that’s all for now! Gotta sleep in because it’s gonna be another day of packing like siao tomorrow!

Love, A.

The Decor Diaries Part 2: Mata Rambang

So here I am again fussing about wedding decor. Is it me, or am I the only one who thinks too much about wedding decor? I mean, it’s just a one day event, how important can decor be? I wish I could tell myself to just stop bothering with the decor but I cannot. I keep looking at the photos of wedding decor and keep changing my mind. It doesn’t help that I’m very fickle-minded too! 

In any case, I have further shortlisted the wedding decor vendor from my earlier shortlisted vendors for wedding decor. They are: A.nggun Decor and C.omelmolek! I chose them on the basis of  beautiful drapes (duh!), fresh flowers and the ability to bring out elegance in simplicity. Oh and also because they have one of the nicest open concept dais. This is especially important for CCs wedding, I feel. It’s such a waste to not make use of all the empty space on the stage and it bothers me a lot when the pelamin doesn’t fill up the stage. I requested a picture for an open concept  dais from one of the vendors I mentioned here. Let’s just say I wasn’t pleased with what I saw. I guess I just want a simple, clean and elegant look involving drapes and fresh flowers.

Let me share some photos from Malaysian weddings which I really love. Hehe. They are mostly by Flair Designs and Chenta Weddings. No surprises, of course. Hehe. 

  

   
    
    
  

This is my personal favourite! But it’s not practical for huge group shots.

  
So dreamy kan? Now you guys know why I shortlisted AD and CM? Because I believe they can deliver what I want. Hehehe. So excited to meet them next week! 😍

Love, A.

 

Sweet Little Tooth of Mine

People who know me know that I have insatiable cravings for food. My cravings are usually random and specific. In the midst of marking karangan, I can suddenly crave for ayam panggang from NUS canteen. And no, a good ol’ meal consisting of grilled chicken and rice from Bagus won’t do. I must get the one from NUS. Kalah orang berbadan dua. Z gets very stressed out when I get my random cravings because we could be at Woodlands and suddenly I want prata from Saffrons. Hahaha. 

I hardly crave for sweet things though. While I do enjoy eating my desserts, it’s not something that I have to have or else… Which is why it is bugging me like crazy that I have been craving for Icecream, chocolates and cakes. I guess my sweet tooth is finally making an appearance and recently, I’ve been craving for ice cream mochi. OMG I love mochi and I totally borong mochi when I was in Taiwan because those sweet little squishy balls, densely packed with calories, are heavenly. So when Z and I happened to walk by Kane Mochi, I couldn’t resist myself. 

   
 
Hehe I was such a happy goober having bought those squishy balls of mochi. (And I guess you can finally put a face to my Theklumsybride moniker hehe.) We had Thai Iced Tea, Strawberry and Chocolate flavoured mochi and I couldn’t pick a favourite because I loved them all!!!! 

Can I have some mochis at my wedding please? I guess it’s a good thing that we got Puteri as our wedding caterer since they are so generous with their desserts! I shall make a mental note to remind Fariq from Puteri to prepare lotsa desserts for Z and I on our wedding day! Hehe. 

Oh these mochis are halal certified from a Thai Islamic organization. There’s a certificate at the shop you can look through it if you want to know more!

Can I have more mochis please? 😍

Love, A

The Wedding Caterer

Assalamualaikum! Alhamdulillah, my parents and I have secured our first vendor for the wedding and it goes none other to the wedding caterer, Puteri Weddings. InshaAllah it will go well!

Next up, photographer and bridal! Hehe. I was so excited to blog about this even though I could combine the entries together but ah, wells.

Things are starting to get exciting! Stay tuned for more! 🙂

Love, A.

The Decor Diaries Part 1: What a Woe!

First and foremost, I want to thank all those who have commented on previous post and also my friends who dropped me a messaged just to tell me it’s okay to do my research and book appointments with vendors this early. I feel much better now! 🙂 So today, I want to talk about wedding decor. I know some people won’t consider the wedding decor as something of top priority – my mom is definitely one of them. But I’m not those people. From the very beginning when Z and I started planning for the wedding, I knew very well that the wedding decor would be of significance to me. I’ve always loved attending weddings and admiring the beautiful array of fresh flowers, dais and the flowing drapes. Oh, gosh, DRAPES. My weakness has got to be drapes, especially when they are hung from wall to wall, with full ceiling coverage. Heck, I can just browse through Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for hours looking at beautiful drapes. I cannot get enough of drapes. Can’t you tell? Hehe.

But alas, drapes come at a hefty price tag. As heavy as the drapes themselves. My heart sinks each time I analyze the catalogues sent by the vendors. I wasn’t sure if it was going to be worth it at all. I decided that it wasn’t after a while, and I was fine settling for the basic decor with no additional, melampau, drapes. Well, I thought I was quite settled by that decision already. Apparently not. Me being the fickle-minded person that I am, I kept swaying from wanting drapes and not caring about drapes. I think my mom got really fed-up that she stopped me from browsing through more pictures. Hehe.

I admit, this whole decor thing has caused me so much distress that I’ve even decided to have my own series just for decor, The Decor Diaries. In this part of the series, I am going to share with you girls the wedding decor companies that I have shortlisted for my wedding. I have set up appointments with some of these companies as of now so we’ll see how it goes when I’ve made my decision. And yes, I’ve decided to go for drapes and the shizz. 

Jentayu Wedding Gallery

Now, who doesn’t know of Jentayu right? I love how they pay so much attention to details. To be honest, they are not so big on drapes BUT they have fresh flowers and fresh flowers do just as well for me. Besides, it’s Jentayu, hello?

Their packages don’t come cheap, of course. When I first saw the prices, I think I almost got a heart attack. Poor me. But after looking at the bundles and doing some quick calculations, I actually think they are pretty worth it. I actually like that they collaborate with TWC Inspirations for their wedding favours and wedding invitation cards. What’s not to love about TWC, right? T

Anggun Decor

To me, Anggun Decor has got to be THE vendor that you have to go to if you are crazy for drapes. I am so crazily in love with their decor. I mean, how can I not?? Every single time I attend a wedding that has the privilege to be graced by Anggun Decor, I will hyperventilate. No kidding. Just look at the photo of this very charming open concept dais! I really think Anggun Decor does a marvellous job when it comes to the dais for weddings held at CCs. Don’t you think so?

Comel Molek Wedding Decor

Now, how comel and molek is this dais? I totally love it. Also, it’s in such a sweet shade of pastel and dusty pink – not too overwhelming. I LOVE pink but I never thought of having a total pink wedding because I thought it would be too much (I’m doing my friends a favour, here! Hehe!). But when I saw this, I was sold. Who says I can’t have my pink wedding with DRAPES? I attended a friend’s wedding and when I saw the dais, I knew in a heartbeat that it was done by ComelMolek. Although they are quite new in the industry, as compared to Jentayu, I think they’ve been doing pretty well even though they are not as active and popular on social media as compared to the other popular vendors. And they have nice drapes to beautify their dais’ backdrop. Their prices have increased since the last time I asked them early this year and I was very shocked but I guess, it is bound to happen anyway!

Eternally Yours – Weddings & Events

Now, this one, is another one that stole my heart. Z and I first got to know of Eternally Yours when we visited the wedding expo recently. When I saw their very unique platform/stage, I thought to myself, “Wow, this i something different!” Look at how the platform is covered by white flower petals. It adds a touch of class and extravagance to the whole set up, no?

Z and I spoke for about half an hour with the manager and she nicely explained to us in detail every package they offer. They also make such exclusive wedding gubahan trays. They make use of those clear acrylic boxes which reminds me of those gubahan trays from Malaysian weddings. Come, let me show you an example.

Screen Shot 2015-10-12 at 8.44.31 pm

Nice right??? Okay maybe the flowers around the trays are a bit much but the ones we saw at Expo were so simple and elegant! So that’s about it. The vendors I’ve shortlisted. Actually, I shortlisted 5 vendors. The last one is RH Bridal but I decided not to include RH Bridal into this post because they have not replied me until now. It’s been more than a month. So, I’m a bit disheartened. But, takpelah.

Now, do you understand how this whole decor thing is causing me such distress? They are all so beautiful and elegant, right? Funnily though, I am taking my time with booking the perfect wedding vendor because I do not want to rush it. I want to make sure that I select the right decor company that’s able to fulfil my requirements for drapes, fresh flowers, details and perhaps, an open concept dais? Well, the quest to clinch the right vendor will continue for now!

As for now, I’ll be booking 3 heavy weight vendors this week, inshaAllah! We have yet to book our photographer because we wanted to think it through after our appointment last week. But actually, we only took 1 minute after the appointment to think through because after we left, we smiled to each other and I knew, Z was sold. He tried to hide it but I know him too well. Hehe. I’ll update on this once we’ve paid the deposits for the 3 heavy weight vendors (photographer, caterer and bridal).

Till then!

Love, A

The First One

Hello, people! Wow I haven’t really been updating. When I first had this blog, I thought I would be updating religiously but I guess not. I’m currently busy marking scripts and scripts of exam papers and gosh, I do not like it one bit. I can’t wait for this whole exam marking to end… It’s a torture to mark 150 scripts of karangan in such a limited time, you know. /exasperated sigh

Just a quick update related to the wedding preparation – we went to the wedding expo over the last weekend and I think nothing really caught my eyes except for the food from the food bazaar. Hehe. Okay la, to be fair I did like the decor from Eternally Yours and they use a lot of fresh flowers, which is a huge attraction point for me. But I guess, I am already drawn to my own choice of vendors whom I have contacted prior to the wedding expo. The expo visit was more for Z to find for himself suitable vendors for the reception at his side since we are doing separate receptions.

Also, Z and I will be meeting our first vendor tomorrow and hopefully all goes well! The first appointment we are making is with a photographer. Of all things! But I guess, it’s highly important for us to have a good photographer for the wedding to capture our beautiful memories, InshaAllah! Can you girls make a guess who our Photographer will be, if all goes well tomorrow? Hehe.

Recently, I’ve been told that I’m making appointments way too early since the wedding won’t be until 2017. I was of course slightly affected. Hey, I’m sensitive by nature, y’know! I questioned myself  if it was the right choice to be starting on my research and meetings with vendors so soon but I actually think there’s nothing wrong with it especially since our wedding date is during the peak wedding period. Also, I really don’t want to bother with all the research next year since I foresee myself getting even busier with work. Besides there are already vendors who opened 2017 bookings! No harm starting early right?

Sometimes I feel like I should just keep mum about the whole planning process. But alah, biasalaaaa I get excited too easily. Ah well….

I’ll update again once I’m done with marking!

Love, A

Ideal or Practical Wedding?

Hello, everyone and Salam Aidiladha! May the remaining days of Tashreeq be blessed with ibadah, happy eating and remembrance of Allah, inshaAllah! Aameen!

Many of you would probably be aware by now of the closure of primary and secondary schools today due to worsening haze condition on the evening of 24th September. I was of course, overjoyed when I first saw the news. It was only much later when logic creeped into my mind and I realised, I NEED TO FINISH REVISION WITH MY STUDENTS AND I STILL NEED TO FINISH ORAL. And no guys, we teachers still had to work and there’s just so much administrative stuff that needed (and still needs) to be settled. Now, whoever said teachers have it easy? :p

But that’s besides the point. What I really wanted to blog about was the shock I was greeted with when my dear father cooly said to me this evening that he wants a live band performing traditional music for the wedding. Wait… What? A live band? Did I hear correctly? You know, I am starting to mishear things people say here and there. But just to be sure, I asked him again.

“Abah nak live band perform lagu Melayu asli.”

Yup, I wasn’t mistaken. My old man wants to have traditional Malay music performed by a live band, particularly Orkes Budi. Not that I have anything against that, really. I love traditional Malay music, especially zapin. And I wasn’t really thinking of how it would affect the wedding planning in the economic sense. (Of course I was worried laaa of the costs to be incurred.) Let me explain myself.

The first few times I envisioned my wedding was perhaps a few years ago. Wait of course not. A girl has been dreaming of her wedding since she was a toddler! Hehe. I had two versions of how I wanted my wedding. I have my ideal wedding (grand, fairytale, ala Mariah & Sham-esque) and I have my version of practical wedding which I grew to be so accustomed to that resulted in me brushing aside any thoughts of my ideal wedding. My idea of a practical wedding doesn’t need 1000 guests, nor does it involve any of the fancy frills and fanfare. I didn’t want any wang hantaran nor did I want any gift trays. And I nonchalantly said no to photo booths, live entertainment and all that jazz. Just a simple affair with music played from my own playlist of approved-songs, simple decor and nice-but-doesn’t-burn-the-pockets food, surrounded by family and friends. Senang cakap, a practical wedding won’t need all the unnecessary things la. Because what we want to focus on is the marriage and not the wedding right? Right? Which was why I was slightly apprehensive about having a live traditional band at my wedding.

However, since I started researching for vendors and watching wedding videos, my idea of an ideal wedding started to distort my vision of having a practical wedding. Z, having known me so well, even mentioned that “You can have your grand wedding.” Hahaha wah, this guy is good. But anyways, I have been so caught up with contacting vendors, thinking of the wedding (yes, a bit too early, but I very kiasu mah and most of the vendors I like only have a few slots left!) that I’m starting to forget what I told myself about unnecessary spending. I keep having to remind myself to go back to my intention and niyyat of getting married so that I won’t be swayed by the extra magic touch. But, it’s kinda hard, sometimes. You know? Does anybody experience the same conflicted emotions as me?

I did speak to my parents about the wedding finances and as much as I didn’t want to burden them, I didn’t want to disappoint them and come across as too hard-headed and rude as well. Every father would feel a great sense of responsibility over his children, especially his daughters and mine insisted on funding part of the wedding. I am grateful, of course but I just hope it’s not gonna cause any misunderstanding along the way, inshaAllah.

Anyways since I’m already on the topic of having a live band at my wedding, do you girls have any recommendations for a traditional live band other than Orkes Budi? My father insists on having Orkes Budi because he has watched them played live so if you have any reviews for them, it would be good too!  (I’ve included a video of Orkes Budi and I thought it was quite good! What do you think?) But, my father’s criteria  for a live band are as such:

  1. Not too noisy and messy
  2. Wear traditional clothes
  3. Perform fully traditional music with none in English
  4. Professional

And since my father wants a traditional live band kan, guess what sort of wedding do I want now? A traditional Malay wedding of course! Why not, kan? Just go along with it lah. Anyway I thought it was befitting of me as Malay Language teacher as well to have a traditional Malay wedding with some adat istiadat. 

The pursuit to save wherever I can is still ongoing, though. Don’t worry!

Love,
A

How I Got A New Address To My Name

Hello! I’m back after a short break. I haven’t had the time to update as my dad was hospitalised the whole of last week. Every day, I had to rush to the hospital once the school bell rang at 1.40 pm to accompany my dad. It was definitely a very trying and tiring week for us all and I cannot be anymore grateful for my family members, my friends and Z and his family who came to visit and offered their prayers. :’)

Also, have I mentioned that we now have a new address to our names? Hehe. Yes! We were finally called up for an appointment at HDB on Sunday and we have selected our unit. Alhamdulillah! So, I’ll finally be an eastie in 4-5 years’ time, inshaAllah. Can’t wait! I think I am an eastie at heart, hehe. It’s a bit sad to be leaving Woodlands though I’ll deal with that much later.

In other wedding/marriage related news, Z and I followed our friends to go for food tasting at Kebabs’n’Curries and a wedding held at Masjid Mujahidin. Will be writing a review on that soon! Meanwhile, let me go through my last week of teaching before exams start next week.

Love,
A

The A to Z Engagement (Part 2)

Hiiiii! I’m back and I decided to blog despite still feeling very sick. I figured if I didn’t do it any sooner, this update about the engagement will never see daylight. Hehe. Also, I have not been doing much since I’m sick and all cooped up at home since Z and I got engaged last Sunday. Poor me.

But before I go on about the engagement process, allow me to rant about my woes as a sick-baru-tunang-girl. I cannot believe I’ve been sick for 3 days since Sunday. I initially thought I was going to spend my days post-engagement happy as a bird. But no, apparently, I’ve been a sick bird for the past three days. Lucky for me though, it’s the September holidays (yes, yes, I’m a teacher. I think I’m slowly revealing my identity both knowingly and unknowingly so if you happen to know me, um, diam-diam je lah eh. Hehe.) so I thought I could save some money from visiting the doctor and just take in whatever medications I have at home. Lo and behold, I got a message from my ARO (whatever that means) that I’m deployed for the big Singapore event ahead. I was groggy when I read the message but I thought it was not possible since I was not sent for training although I’m a reserve. So, after snoozing for a good 20 minutes, I read the message again (yup, it was there alright). I informed my ARO of my predicament and while they have found a replacement for me, I now need to go to the clinic just in case. But then again, I’m not feeling any better and my fever seems to not be going away so I better go to the clinic. Ah well, Okay enough about my sick self.
bungarampai

So where was I? Oh yes, The A to Z Engagement. So up till last Saturday, I was still not done with many things. Inilah parahnya nak buat semua secara D-I-Y. Z and I were all over Tampines to run some errands like printing the dulang tags, buying flowers and entertaining me (hehe). After satisfying my craving for good ol’ prata and sambal from Saffrons (I love that place), we rushed to get flowers from GG Flowers. We came just in time before the delivery man drove off and managed to get the flowers delivered to my place in Woodlands. All I could think then was Alhamdulillah, thumma alhamdulillah. I wouldn’t want to carry so many flowers in 168 from Tampines all the way to Woodlands, y’know? We then proceeded to Century Square to print the label tags. Here’s the thing – I thought I own a pretty good laser printer and didn’t need to send the tags for printing but my pretty good laser printer ran out of ink the colours turned out pale and ugly. I also realised I forgot to combine them tags into an A3 or A4 canvas. I initially wanted to go to Sunshine Plaza, the holy grail of printing all printing services but I didn’t want to be running all over Singapore just for this and thought it was best to go for convenience and quality. As such, I chose Tampines Printing Services as I’ve engaged their services back then in my undergrad days. It’s slightly more pricey but the good quality (and service) is undeniable. That’s not all though. I still had to finish up the bunga rampai cones, hand-tied bouquet, gift trays and clean my room so Z and I couldn’t really spend much time on Saturday. 😦 I left him to run his own errands and have some time with his friends (maklumlah, dah nak jadi tunang orang hehe). 

Backdrop

Fruit basket for Z

Sunday saw me jolting out of bed early to finish up the fruit basket with my mother. I must say, we did a pretty good job! My father and brother, assisted by my cousin, drove over to CCK to collect the cakes and gubahan for gift trays while food from Aspirasi Catering arrived on the dot at 11.30 am. My craft fairies arrived around 11 am to help me with my room’s decor and gift trays and by 1 pm I had to drag myself to get ready and do my makeup. I decided not to get any MUA as I didn’t want anything too overwhelming. I think I did a pretty good job, but not without some help of course. My friend, who is also Z’s friend’s fiancée helped with the eye makeup because I’m hopeless when it comes to eye makeup hehe. After that, all I could remember was taking too many photos and not being able to sit still. I wasn’t nervous. I just cannot sit still. Hehe. The discussion between the two families happened really quickly because before I knew it, the cincin was on its way to my room. I thought, wow. So much fuss and preparation for something that happened and ended so quickly. Is that how our wedding will be, too? :/

However, I do remember how my friends were such sweethearts offering help, advice and words of encouragement. I remember how my friend, A (together with her fiance) sacrificed their Sunday to take photos for me. I also cannot be more thankful for the pulut kuning, berkat for kids, fruits, food and cake which my aunts, uncles and cousins gave us for the event. I remember how my mother ran here and there to buy things for the event to make sure that it will be complete and sempurna. I remember how my father agreed to all my whims and fancies and quietly supported me since Day 1. I cannot deny how sweet of my sister when she helped to clean up the house, entertain my friends and guests and kept took it all in when I went on a panic frenzy. And I will never forget how Z was patiently by my side, coaxing me and all when I made a big fuss because I couldn’t complete the things I set out to do.

Really, alhamdulillah for everything and thank you, everyone for having been a part of The A to Z Engagement. 🙂 Now, let me show you more photos of the event. I was particularly in love with my room’s decor and my friends mentioned how it was just the right mix of sweet and dreamy. Hehe.

Flower pom-poms at my window!

Flower pom-poms for my backdrop. I added two more on the sides.

Paper pin wheels as backdrop and the brownies and cake for Z

Hydrangea, spray roses, Kenyan roses for my DIY bouquet

The details on my shawl hehe

One of my Craft fairy did the design on the chalkboard for me and I love it!

I hope these pictures are enough! Hehe. I really like how everything was simple and in order, alhamdulillah! There were a few things which I was probably not too happy with but on hindsight, it didn’t matter much so I cannot be too bothered. Hehe. As of now, we have already started to e-mail a few vendors, mostly photographers and videographers. We have an appointment coming up with a photographer in October and I’m quite excited because both Z and I love the photos by this particular photographer! But on more serious note, our BTO selection is in about a week’s time and I hope we get the unit that we want! Pray for us okay!

Till the next update, inshaAllah!

Love,
A
