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!
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!
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!
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 email@example.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:
….. oh man, need to really sit and get this list straightened out!
Alhamdulillah! Finally had time to go down to Nafimages and made our first payment! I seriously cannot be happier with our decision to choose Nurudynn for our wedding. Always so lepak and such a nice guy! He even made an exception to meet us on a weekend considering both Z and I have such busy schedules on weekdays.
We were both very happy about the package we chose and we thought for the amount we paid, he really offered us quite a lot. Not to mention the quality of work he delivers. Cannot wait to be working with Nafimages, already!
The fiance and I finally decided on our Bridal Andaman and Photographer. Trust me, these two was not easy to decide on. There were so many good ones to choose from! Initially, I wanted to book Ishq by Norazee as our Bridal Andaman but unfortunately they were fully booked on that day. So, we then made a booking with Anggun by Mastura. We are very happy with the price and package they offered and many of our friends have taken their service before and we could see how good they are. Anggun by Mastura charges $3288 for 10hrs of service and 3 different outfits and accessories, which to be honest is quite worth it considering the fact that their service is really, really good! So Alhamdulillah, we made our decision and already reserved our wedding date with them. Next step is to book an appointment date with them.
We also decided on the photographer for our pre-wedding and actual day. Now, for this I was the fussy one. I was really looking for someone who can deliver excellent quality and has good professionalism. I was at first torn between Fandy Razak and Blissphotocinema. We all know that Fandy Razak is a well-known photographer in Singapore. I am always impressed with his work and the photos he usually posts on his instagram. However, my fiance thought that the price was abit steep for a wedding event. So I then suggested Blissphotocinema. Now, Fandy Razak offers $3500 for 10 hr event and 4 hrs outdoor shoot whereby Blissphotocinema offers $2830 for also 10 hrs event and 4 hours outdoor. Now, we have never had friends working with either of this photographer. I know that both are very good photographers but being the fussy one, I prefer choosing someone that I know and have seen in person. So the last photographer that came to mind was Nuruddynn of Naf Images. Just recently, one of our close friends did a pre-wedding photo shoot with him and we also a part of the whole process. We were able to see how Nuruddynn does his job and yes, he is definitely professional and very hardworking. He carried the heaviest load yet I never saw him sigh or complain instead he was the most ‘on’ amongst us. Another of our friend recommended him to us too. I emailed him and to my surprise they have a new package now! Naf Images offer $2800 for 10hrs event and 6 hours outdoor! GOOD DEAL, RIGHT? It didn’t take long for the fiance and I to make a decision. He was even prompt when replying our email. So so happy now that we have made a decision on a photographer.
So, Alhamdulillah! 2 things off the list (and many more to go) but at least that’s a first step considering how much I procrastinate to sit down and make wedding decisions.
