Your Royal Highness

I was going through my old wedding inspirations folder, and I found this!

Yeap, that's Tuanku Zara Salim Davidson, wife to the dashing Raja Nazrin.

I saved that picture (and a few others) because I loved the detailing on her dress. The style itself wasn't really my thing - it was a long jubah-like dress, which she pulled off stunningly (since she's tall and slim and pretty)! I, on the hand, short and petite, would have drown in a dress like that!

But, more than that, I saved her picture because she's just so gorgeous! Seriously, she and her royal husband makes one good-looking couple!

Here's a few more shots of her, looking like a princess!


But, here's something that I actually used for my own akad nikah inspiration.

Her pelamin! It was so simple, but sweet. I loved her pelamin, and still do! But, in the end, I didn't really have any decor for my akad because of the whole "there's-11-couples-getting-married-on-the-same-day-at-Masjid-Wilayah-so-taking-the-decor-in-and-out-would-have-been-a-nuisance" thing!

To all of you planning, here's some nice ideas to turn your own Akad into a ROYAL event! *excuse my lame-ness*

And, I leave you with this breathtaking picture of my favourite princess,

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

And look at what I found!

This one! 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.


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!
