Favors please~

Sorry for the long hiatus. I've been awfully ill and extreamly busy with my final project. Gosh! Tolong la doakan everything will go as planned and will result me something brilliant by end of October. InsyAllah ;) hee

At this stage, am still looking out for the best favors to be given to the guests. I am still very far away in term of hands-on-preps for my wedding. I haven't booked a single thing YET. Urghhh. I know. So much of the talking... actions elek! I have short listed the things and the people that I wish to hire for my event tapi, tu lah...huhuh.

As for now... yes, favors. The criteria of a good favor (to me la~ :P)
  1. Practical
  2. Cute
  3. Something valuable (Tapi, bukan lah jongkong emas ye ladies & gents. heheh)
  4. Something that is other than food? (I tend to ignore most of the foodies given. huhu)

I have some issues over this matter with my mom. One thing for sure- we are trying to avoid giving away food and junkies (bukan sampah sarap- I mean, jajan & yang sewaktu dengannya- other than kids of course. Ape je nak kasi derang?!)

My mom came up with hand towel idea. It must have high absorbent quality. Cotton. Just about the size of Good-Morning-Towel. Ouh, and it must be given in a enviromental friendly bag- of course, it has to be made out of paper. So, after some browsing- I've found Ole-Ole Manis. The brown paper bags (like Nariko's) which looks something like this-

Both pics are taken from Ole- Ole Manis

But the towel.... It's a failure. Still! :( Sobs!

And as for the kids- I have to surrender with the fact- kena jugak kasi derang sweets huhu AND, just simply because I have found this:

Ole- Ole Manis are selling these things really cheap! You can ask Nadea the quotations but these are selling at a very reasonable price. ;) BUT, in my case- my mom had asked for the chocolates to be placed in paper boxes like this....

For a more environmental friendly gifts~ ngeheee :P and Nadea had also quoted a very good bargain for it. My parents macam da hooked with it. Nadea is a pleasent person to deal with. She is really nice and very generous with ideas minus the extra charges.. ;) (Pstttt, Nad... can I get further markdown? heee :P)

Bouquet DIY

I thought of sharing the DIY version of making your own wedding bouquet. I'm not sure how much it would cost if we simply buy the end product~ but, since my wedding will be held in persekitaran sebuah kampung, maka... haruslah susah untuk mendapatkan florist yang boleh menyediakan hand bouquet kan? Erk, ke... tak pernah tau ade servis sedemikian di kampung sendiri? hahahah.

But, I might just get some helping hand from my mom or cousin- just in case pengantin nanti bakal sibuk- kalah Barack Obama on his conference week. :P (Sorry, the new semester had just started- I'm getting super busy but, I need to update this blog because I have the social responsibility la kunon. Hahah)

So, ladies... I hope it'll help ;)

Till then, bye folks! ;)

Which bouquet suits you?

I was googling just now, and I've found something which seems very interesting to share it in here. Some of you may have come across it but, I think it'll be useful for my wedding day and yours' too (if you haven't got a clue about it) :P. This article was taken from here.

Basically, there are three categories of wedding bouquet style :

1. The cascade is shaped like the waterfall, more flowers on the top with some flowers can be seen flowing downwards. It is blended with some greeneries.

This pic is from here.

2. The round shaped bouquet is of course round in shape with less greenery. The flowers are usually not from a single type but multiple types all arranged tightly to each other.

3. The hand-tied is a bunch of flowers loosely tied together to show the stems.

The pic is taken from here.

To choose the right wedding bouquet style, you must consider three things : the size of your body, your wedding gown and the look that you want to create for yourself.

If you want to look slimmer on your wedding day, choose the cascade wedding bouquet. It has a slimming effect because of its shape : from roundish on the top and pointy at the bottom.

If you are tall, you should go for hand-tied or maybe cascade. Never go for round. With the heels you will be wearing, you will seem extra tall on that day. To be seen as a perfect couple, you need to balance your height with your husband-to-be.

If you want to hide your big hips, go for other bouquets but round. Carrying a round bouquet will make your hips look bigger. Imagine people commenting on your hips on your wedding day. That won't happen to you because now you know.

If you will be wearing a sleeveless wedding gown, there is one perfect wedding bouquet for you. This bouquet is made for sleeveless gowns. The arm bouquet. It will complement your gown nicely. Arm bouquet looks like this:


If you prefer a casual look on your wedding day, go for the hand-tied bouquet. The flowers will look as if they are freshly picked from your garden and tied nicely. You will look fresh and natural carrying a hand-tied bouquet.

If you have a small body, a round bouquet would be perfect. The shape of your body and the bouquet will be balanced, thus creating the perfect look.

You will look slimmer and more elegant on your wedding day when you carry a hand-tied wedding bouquet.

Whatever wedding bouquet style you choose, you should know how to carry it well. Carry it around your waistline near your hip bones. Only then, the elegance of the flower and beauty of the gown will come through. When that happens, you will look your best on that special day.

Uhuk, I've always thought the round bouquet looks gorgeous but, I think.. I may opt for a cascade bouquet for a slimmer look, but thankfully the hand- tied pun okay! .. :P

So, which bouquet suits you best ladies?? :)

Your Dulang-ness

Saya mahu dulang hantaran seperti di atas. Di mana mahu di cari yeh? (Apart from Dios Astana la... :P) Kedai yang agak- agak boleh tawar menawar. I wanted to go for something classy and fresh... timeless and vintage (hahah, x habis- habis vintage eversince Qis letak post tu.. :">).

I guess, kalau takde jugak- I mean kalau mahal gila babas, baik je sewa tak pun, hire je orang buat hantaran kan? Kat MG bole, Sher bole, Nuwoo pun bole.. hahah. Dari spend ribu raban beli dulang je kan? Haih...

Tapi... nak buat sendirik! Haish...

Nak dulang bulat, gold in colour, berkaki (bukan untuk jalan sendiri ye? hehe)... hmm. I saw yang crytal type kat Parkson itu hari.. cantik! Tapi, my mom kata... kalau sumbing or terpecah, mau nangis tak berlagu la... huhu.

Tapi, yang macam ni pun ok jugak...

Chocolate -
This one from MG :)

Gold Sets -
This one is from Nuwoo pula..

Haih... fenin!
