Personalized Stamp

I was scrolling through Carousell and just had to get it. I’m sucha sucker for personalized items like this! Got it on Baisimu  for just $38 and they deliver pretty fast! I was thinking of stamping the back of each invitation envelope that I will be sending out.

They have many designs to choose from. I particularly like this one for the font and design. Can’t wait to put this into use!

A little something for my bridesmaids!

I am so excited for my bridesmaids to receive this small gift from me. I have had this planned for quite some time now. Initially, I couldn’t decide what to put inside and as usually, I got lots of inspirations from Pinterest. Just hope the girls will love it!

Love,

Groomsmen Pin

Hands down the most beautiful and well-crafted handmade pin I’ve ever seen.

Z and I immediately fell in love with these when we saw their instagram and decided to get them for his groomsmen. Price is at $35 each and you can customise the names and even change the design if you like. What better way to celebrate Z’s dedication to his job and this country by sharing it with his best mates! Can’t wait to see the final outcome already!

Wedding Shoes

Since the colours I have chosen for my wedding outfits are in the range of white/cream/yellowish gold, I thought that maybe I should find shoes that are in the same colour tone. I went all over town yesterday to look for nice wedding shoes and only managed to find a very shiny, glittery one from Pazzion in light gold at SGD89.90. I thought this would look perfect when paired with the yellowish-gold songket we will be wearing. I was so exhausted from looking for a plain white shoes that I gave up and Uber-ed home at 730pm. (Dah tua, cannot go on after 3 hours of walking in town. HAHA)

So, I went online to look for white shoes and stumbled upon the one pictured below on Polyvore. Clicked on it and sent me straight to Shein. So happy they had one in my size and to top it off, it only cost USD29.99 after discount. Better still, shipping is only USD4.99. In total, I only had to pay USD35.97 which is SGD48.20. Even cheaper than the one I got from Pazzion!

I’m really glad I got both shoes at such good prices without having to spend hundreds of dollars! More money to save for other wedding stuffs!

Corsage Ideas

Currently looking through ideas for my bridesmaids corsage. Made an order with Cherriesmitten but have yet to give them an idea on how I would like the corsages to be customised. As always, went to Pinterest to look for some ideas and here’s what I’ve found:

Boutonnieres:

I would most likely customise a corsage that looks like the last 4 pics above. So simple yet very elegant without having big, chunky flowers. I’m sure my bridesmaids would love it as well!

Time to send my ideas to Cherriesmitten then!

Berbual Berkat

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? 😀

HELPPP

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
  • Corsages

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!

Love,
R
