Shoes Shoes Shoes

Have you girls found your bridal shoes yet?

No?

Here are some ideas (and tips along the way) ;

This was what I wore during my nikah,



It was a very comfortable peep toe, embellished with the extra kain from my baju, custom made especially for my feet. It was done by Syomir Izwa and it was matchy-matchy with my baju for the day. I felt that the matchy-matchy-ness was fine for the nikah, because I wanted to create a sweet look. I didn't want to be outrageous, I wanted simple and soft. So, that worked!

I love love this pair. In fact, I still use it now. So, this one was definitely worth my money! *thumbs up*

TIPS ONE: Oh, Syomir told me that for a petite girl, like myself, it is so much better to wear peep toes to make you appear less petite. The peeping of the toes (haha, this is the most perfect way to describe 'em) actually make you appear taller!

The shoes that I wore during my reception, on the other hand, was drop dead ugly!



And it was soooo uncomfortable. I think the size was a tad bit bigger than my feet. But, thankfully it had those straps around my ankle to kind of secure my feet while I walked around. I actually wanted a peep toe. But, I think towards the wedding day, Rizman got it all mixed up with all the other demands that I was asking of him, that he forgot I actually wanted a peep toe.

The shoes were also matchy-matchy with my dress for the night. And that bothered me, a bit. I wanted to be more daring with my shoes for the night.

Something like this would have been perfect!



It would have created a more glamorous, "va-va-voom" look, right?

See how much of a difference that traditional pointed shoes and that va-va-voom shoes make? One spells boring and traditional while the later screams OUTRAGEOUS! (of course, in a good way, hehe)

TIPS TWO: So, dear brides-to-bes, shoes are very important in creating the look that you're after! I'm sure you have seen all those pictures of American brides with their colourful shoes, and that just made it slightly less formal and more playful! It's always nice to see a lil' bit of character peeping thru under your dress.

Oh, and please do invest in a really comfortable pair of shoes! Because you'll be walking all night long. And if you are going to have a photography session after, like myself, that's going to be one loooooong night! Imagine my feet after my night photography, they were cursing me for trapping them in those shoes!

TIPS THREE: Something like this, (with a platform bit in front) is actually quite comfy to wear.



Happy Shoes-Shopping!

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!
