Exactly 2 months to #zairianxramizah 😍
This berkat issue was never ending. Everyone in the family had an opinion to give. Some say not too big, not too ex, make it practical, make it simple, make it nice. Yadda yadda. I got a little fed up at one point of time. So, I just followed their suggestion to survey in Jb instead.
My cousin in JB was really helpful. In less than 10 minutes, he already found a place we could look into. I really like the different things they offered and of cos, the price! Ahh, the price.
Albeit the location of the shop was abit far from JB Central (it was located at Pasir Gudang), we were lucky my aunt and uncle drove us there. The shop/vendor name was The Moons Gallery and Doorgift. Apparently, they are quite well-known in JB. They provide doorgifts for every occasion:
They also have mini sejadah, ready-made Yassin, tasbih in a box – essentials you need when holding a “Doa Selamat” event or such. The items range as low as RM1.50 to about Rm3.50, depending on what you choose. They even do customised labels of your choice and it’s already included in the price they stated. The item I took included labels, ribbons and even a net pouch – all for just RM3.30! I was so happy when I saw the price cos I really didn’t want to spend so much on anything anymore hahaha!
Let’s make a guess which one I chose for my event ok? 😀
We went for our bridal fitting last month. I was so excited for this one. As expected, it was really hard for me to make a decision. However, I am blessed to have a fiance who lets me choose the colours and designs I want to don on our big day. As mentioned in some of my earlier posts, we chose Nawarrah Bridal for our big day. The first time I met Zubi, I already liked her. So sweet and really helpful. She was so accommodating to our crazy schedules. On the day of our fitting, she gave us lots of advises and patiently answered our questions. She even made sure we picked the right colour and outfit for our big day. I had such a hard time making a decision cos all of the outfits were gorgeous. Each was made to perfection – the choice of cloth and the delicate designs. I wish I could pick all of them. HAHA! To say that I am happy is an understatement. I am more than blessed and glad that we picked Nawarrah Bridal as our choice. I can’t wait for you guys to see the outfits already!
Decided to get something small for the wedding tray. Totally in love with this one. ❤
The past few months have been crazy. Settling a new class in the new term was absolutely exhausting. I come home from work/class each night and KO right after showering. Sometimes I forget that I only have 5 more months to the big day and I still have a long list of pending items to be done:
- Door Gifts
- Invitation Card
- Bridemaid’s Dress
- Wedding Shoes
- Hantaran Items
- Gift Trays decorations
- Marriage Preparation Course
- Wedding Cake
- Bridal Henna
I should seriously take some time to make bookings/orders for all these pending items. *cries silently*
Also, if anyone knows any photobooth vendors who does photo strips please let me know. I’m really loving the one by Hur Hur Paperie but they are charging $580 for 5 hours and I’m not sure if I would want to spend that much on just photobooth. DO LET ME KNOW! Thanks!
Sorry BTBs for the long hiatus. I have been consumed by a great amount of work and assignments to the point I knock out as early as 10pm on some days. Anyhoos, here’s an update on some of our wedding preps.
Previously, I blogged about taking Anggun by Mastura for our bridal outfits but sad to say that they are not available on our wedding date but fret not! I managed to get another bridal vendor on a short notice which is Nawwarah Bridal. I must say I am very pleased with the service thus far, the lady Zubaidah is very prompt in replying my emails (and I am one whois quite impatient at waiting for replies). The outfits Nawwarah Bridal offer is just about the right fit for me! They cater more to hijab BTBs like me and I am so pleased and excited about it! Some of the outfits I saw on their instagram are to die for! Also, their price range is quite easy on the pockets (even more things to be pleased about with this bridal ah!). If any of you wants a peek at the package listing, do email me at firstname.lastname@example.org!

At the same time, I am amidst discussing about what berkat I should include in my wedding. I am really all about something practical like food but does anyone has any suggestions for a food berkat that is not very typical i.e. butter biscuits, pulut kuning, chocolates, redondo etc.
Some of the things I need to do:
- Bridesmaid Kit
- Bridesmaid Outfit
- Groomsmen Outfit
- ….. oh man, need to really sit and get this list straightened out!
Spent most of my afternoon today looking at “Bridesmaid Gifts/Kits”. I am somehow very, very excited about this as well. Truth be told, I already felt like buying everything for my bridesmaids. HAHAHA.
I also spent some time looking at Bridesmaid Cards and found some inspirations online. So here’s two which I made from scratch:
I can’t decide which one I prefer! I WANT TO USE BOTH!!! hahaha Soon, I will be sourcing for places to print my cards. Do let me know if you have any good place to print!
And here’s some inspiration I got off Pinterest for my Bridesmaid Kit:
Some of the stuffs I would like to include in the box..
and some other stuffs as well! So excited!
