Friends' Weddings: Saran & Vilashini

This is my first ever Indian wedding.

And I had so much fun!

We were up bright and early Saturday morning because we had the heavy task of bringing the bride to the Temple. According to the Indian culture, the bride and groom must leave their respective houses before a certain time. Bad luck will follow if you leave after that set time. And in our case, that time was 10.15am.

We left early, around 8.30am because (i) the bride's house is in Cheras (ii) the Temple is in Ampang and more importantly (iii) the car was adorned with flowers and ribbons, making driving really fast impossible!



Both Hubs and I wore the Punjabi suit, and we were both very excited to wear them. Here, check us out!



The ceremony itself, where the bride and groom hold hands and walk around the fire, didn't take that long. I wasn't really paying attention to what they were doing really. I was busy looking at the bride's sari. It is sooooo gorgeous. White with gold beadings and detailing. Here, see for yourself.

And later that night, we went to their small wedding reception. Okay, hands down, this is the MOST ENJOYABLE wedding I've been to! The wedding itself is very informal, centred around the families and friends.

The performances (Indian dances, singing, and erm bhangra kompang thingy(?!)) were all done by the family members and was very very meriah!






That's the bhangra kompang thingy that I was telling you earlier

Hubs and I really enjoyed ourselves dancing and lepaking with friends!



Ni baru warming up ni :p

So much so that I woke up with an aching body the next morning. *grins*

That was truly one very meriah wedding! *Like*

Inspired by my friend's wedding saree, I went searching for this beautiful material.

And look at what I found!

This one just.takes.my.breath.away.! It's white and heavily beaded, perfect for a simple baju kurung. I would probably use this for my akad nikah. That is if I had another chance of doing my wedding all over again :p



This light brown+gold-ish sheer saree screams GLAMOROUS! Imagine that for your reception dress, with some gold detailing, you can be one glamorous bride! *love*



I love this grey beaded saree as well. Very very chic! And the best thing about grey? It matches a lot of other colours to bring out different moods.



Like if you pair it with this pink saree for your bridemaids/entourage/family members, you'd achieve a very chic but sweet look.



Just look at that detailing at the bottom! That's just grand!! I would probably use this for my tunang. Oh, or baju raya also nice! Hmmmm...*thinking*



The last two sarees would be nice either for an engagement do'…

Hello Rizman Ruzaini, Bye Bye Syaiful Baharim!

Shocking kan? After my last post on Syaiful Baharim.

So what happened?

Ok, yesterday evening me and mom went to Jakel to get the lace. Sampai je Jakel, pegi la kat tingat kain exclusive tu, focus hanya untuk mencari lace. I wanted a simple, CHEAP, non-beaded lace. Any kind, asalkan cantik. The SA who helped us, who happens to be the owner and Mom's friend, mestilah tunjuk yang beaded Solstiss je. Without a doubt, Solstiss lace IS exquisite. Memang tengok muka automatically berseri-seri, bibir tersenyum-senyum. But, boy, the price! MasyaAllah..!

I was actually quite good; I actually said NO because the laces that she showed me are all very expensive, jenis ribu2 PER METRE! And I was looking to buy 4 metres of lace! So I said to Kak S (the owner), I prefer the simpler one, no beads, tak payah la Solstiss2 ni. So, she showed me some, plain, simple and sweet, I didnt have a problem getting just that.

Then.....

Kak S: Who's your designer nanti?

Me: Syaiful Baharim..

Kak S: Oh, Syaiful. Di…

Be Prepared on Your Wedding Day!

So useful, this!

Print this and give a copy to your maid of honour/best friend/sister or whoever that will be close to you on your big day.

Often, brides forget the food and drink bit, but trust me, have some snack handy. Because you WILL be hungry. And don't forget straws! You don't want to ruin your lipstick :p

Okay, everything else is self explanatory.

You're welcome!
