Candlelight

I love candles!

They are so great to create a soft and romantic ambience. They turn the room from bleh to beautiful!

I have candles in my home. Some in the living room - great for those movie-night-in - and some in the bathrooms - a great de-stressing tool, just fill in your tub with your most expensive shower gel, and ahhhh, relaxxxx!

I use mine so often that the candles are now half way down. And I need to get some new ones pronto.

I want to get those really big fat ones. Just like this.



or this one.



I think they would be great for the living room and bedroom *wink*

I also love the round ones in all sizes and colours. And the square ones too. Oh, and tealights as well! *haha, you get the idea, I love EVERYTHING candles!*

They are also great to incorporate in weddings. And I think they can be quite a cheap-ish decor alternative. When I was planning for my wedding, before I even thought of having a decorator, I wanted to use a lot of candles in my wedding decor.
I googled for bulk candle producers around Malaysia, and found a few that offer quite competitive pricing. Most are outside KL, and are willing to ship to KL for a small fee.

If you are DIY-ing your own wedding decor, candles should definitely be in your list! They are easy, cheap and really make that big of a difference to the ambience.

Here's some inspirations;






The great thing about candles is that they are so versatile. You can use them on their own, or group them together on a mirrored plate/tray for a classic look, or pair them with jars for a rustic look, or even use the long tapered ones and stick 'em in the candle holders for an elegant look.

Just go with your what your heart thinks best! And go crazy!

This is my favourite one!



Nanti nak try la kalau buat open house! :p

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!
