Berkat Tag

I finally got around to do the “thank you” tags for my berkat. Here’s how it looks like!

Got my girlfriends to do some decision making for me on this one. I designed 4 different ones with different backgrounds each. We were all so fickle cos we liked the rest too. Ended up choosing this one cos it looks unique! The lady who is doing my berkat, Nadia likes it too! Hope it’ll look as good once printed out and tied onto the berkat!

Love,
R

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!

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!

Sneak Peek of the Invitation

KAD SIZE 4 - ROSELLA - FRONT.png

Yeay! My wedding invitation is all set and ready for collection. Thank you KadLawo!

Initially thought of customising my wedding invite. As some of you may have read my earlier posts, I drafted some designs I would like to use for my invite. Then I lost my thumbdrive and all the drafts got lost along with. I got lazy and decided to just order them. HAHA!

Still very happy and contented with the outcome of this invite by Kadlawo and it was really affordable!

With Love,

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,

UPDATES!

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 ramiezahs@gmail.com!

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:

  • Berkat
  • Invitation
  • Bridesmaid Kit
  • Bridesmaid Outfit
  • Groomsmen Outfit
  • Dulang
  • ….. oh man, need to really sit and get this list straightened out!

 

Till then…
