Hi all BTBs!
I know I have been lazy to update this blog since eons years ago..the last was abt the marriage course…geez..thats a yr back!
Fast forward, we are a mth old today. Its truly a life changing experience!
Wake up early, siapkan makan, siapkan baju etc..
But fun at the same time coz u have a friend to accompany u everywhere and do things with u! haa..
So ni nak rewind back on what happened on 29-30 november. I think these following people need an applaud and a pat on their back and also a deserved testimonial for ALLLL the bride to be out there. Truly blessed to have them for our wedding. REALLY tak bedek! worth every single cents.
I must say Rhis and team are super talented! I can never say enough seeing how Rhis and team put in effort in making our wedding a unique one. He was excited in every piece that we select and kept surprising us with new outfits. Being fickle me, I had a hard time in deciding sampaikan sang suami warning (sudah eh..takmo tukar2 lagi) hahaha..Rhis kept showing me new outfits every now and that excites me further…knowing that I am the first to wear that baju..apa lagi! haha.. he even went his extra mile to get new fabric just to add to my outfit in making it to be like a sparkling new baju different from his past brides! I love how his ideas kept running in his mind. He always have ideas to add on. The balloons, the funky theme he proposed on having for the 2nd Sunday outfit. The big surprise he had for me that almost got me fainted n fickle again on my last visit to his kedai. If you want a bridal who is truly passionate in doing andaman and not just for the sake of getting ur money, it got to be Puteh by Rhis. He is passionate and put his 200% effort in your wedding. He will make sure u look different than any other bride he ever had eventhough with the same baju. I love how he already had the look and style planned and knows what to do for every outfit. and trust me, u will have a different hairdo for every outfit. He is generous with his accessories and his hairdo skills is a bomb. Ni kalau elaborate further, tak akan habis. If tak percaya, visit his facebook by clicking onto his name kat atas tu and see for yourselves. =)
Uncle Lan..Another god send individual. Truly blessed to have him as our decor. I almost cried in tears seeing how my deco turned out to be that night. SUPER CANTIK marsyallah. if only i have a dinner event, everything will be so class and beautiful with all the yellow lights and all. So blessed to have him who put in his 200% effort together with abg aidil in giving me the kind of theme that I want. My theme was “of crystals, diamonds and mirrors”. Seriously, if i can keep that void deck as my house, i wld..hahhaha..the deco was truly spectacular and unexpected. When we first met at my house, we knew we can get along well and we knew that he knows the kind of wedding I want. We trust that he can deliver, hence we just gave him our theme and leave the rest to him to visualize. He is so the tak lokek with tips and advise. Truly easy to work with and always open with ideas. So fortunate to have them who went his extra miles in getting new accessories just to meet to the kind of theme that I want. Sampai kat overseas pun, he got reminded of my wedding. Sungguh terharu! hahhaa… Another vendor who does their job out of passion and not just for your money. Really deserves a testimonial. For those who still dunnoe which deco to choose, think no more, get him! He only does 1 wedding per wkend so rest assured he will only give his 100% focus on ur wedding alone.
3. Suhana Catering
Kak Ana from Suhana Catering was truly generous individual. Again, we got surprised from another vendor. Kak Ana is always giving us tips and advise and I heard raving reviews from my guest that the food spread was good! syukur alhamdulillah. the laksa, mee siam, the goreng pisang n whatnots (coz i wasnt there to see whats on the buffet table). Many talk abt it! sedappp!!
4. Merah In Motion
Love this bunch..they were witty and easy to get along with, very prompt and punctual and always on their toes. I have yet to get my videos from them. But i believe they can do a good job!! =)
Syarfique. best. just one word jer. best. we can get along so well. he happened to be my company DND photographer. We are yet to meet at that point of time but he just look too familiar for me from his photos. Approached him after the event n turns out he is really syarfique! Syarfique was super easy going, funny and he does give lots of advice and tips too. Very accomodating and professional too. just cant wait to see my photos!
ok, here’s the bomb here that made not only children but adults too screaming for all the goodies on these table. a 5 table long candy spread that has a range from kacang putih, asam asin, jeruk, sweet tooth candies, middle eastern delights(from hana indulgence), cakepops, cupcakes and macarons! OMG kenapa la wedding orang lain that i go takde bende ni eh..boleh jugak i enjoy all these things..haha..but i m happy that all my guest are happy n excitedly aiming for the goodies when they are there while some unfortunately didnt get the opportunity as there are too many people at the 5 table long candy spread. I super love the setup, the intricate details of blink blink that they had on the bottles, trays and even the sendok! all the details they had hanging at the top to make the table shine n noticeable even from a distant.
not to forget my wedding cake! ok i have 2 wedding cakes. Macaron tower for my first cake cutting and a 7 tier cake(i tink so, lost count already) for my 2nd cake cutting. I had guest running for the last piece of macarons. or rather, a small kid hurried to the cake table n took 1 macaron from my cake cutting table while i was at my dias..LOL..Do check out their facebook for more pictures!
*disclaimer. tho this is my sister’s rendered service for me, i would say that all things mentioned are not biased or whatnot. its truly a honest testimonial. i m just proud of SC!
7. Photobooth and live streaming
Ok, part ni best. Coz ramai org tertanya which vendor i took. Its non other than me myself n i! I did my own instabooth. no no its not like those u see elsewhere where u snap with ur smartphone, then get it printed. Sorry. kite tak main print print. coz sekarang kalau print pun, they will snap the print and post kat instagram. betul tak? =) so what i did was to do a studio setup with background stand..bought kain from arab st as the background. a friend loan me an umbrella and flash for lighting. Using my own dslr, i connect my cam to my laptop. Once photo was taken, it will be transferred to the laptop where someone will be there to take care and upload the photo into a central instagram account. If guest nak give well wishes, they can type it out on the laptop itself.
Another best part is that, this will show live on a projector that i rented. LIVE! yes live! means, so long u put a hashtag, it will show live on the projector. best kan…I also a niece who followed me and record/snap the event n posted it on instagram so people back at my place get to view it on the screen. =)
yang best ye, that saturday night happens to be Msia-Singapore match..apalagi, the void deck mcm screening live football gitu..haaha
ok so all is over. how i wish i can replay it over n over again. the 2-3hrs of sleeps, the gotong royong, the happiness, the jaw dropping moments. so much love for all that. now that we are married, time to start saving money(yet again!) for another milestone in our lives!
