Wedding Photobooth: Shasa & Fadzihan

This is the story of how PinkBrolly Events started.

Back in December, my friend Shasa got married. And I was responsible for her photobooth.

Shasa's best friend a.k.a the weddding planner, Natte asked me if I'm interested to do her photobooth way back in August/September. Of course I was interested. Up until recently, I was still not over my own wedding! Haha. 

I spoke to Shasa, mostly via Gtalk and WhatsApp, of what she wants and likes, and her expectations of the photobooth. She told me that she wants it to be a garden-y theme, with pink as the main colour.

So, I spent a lot of my time researching and getting inspirations from so many blogs and websites. And finally came up with a concept of a 3D tissue paper flowers, with a pink ombre effect.

I showed her my amateur-ish sketch, and she gave me her stamp of approval. When I emailed her my drawings, I was sooooooo nervous!! See, I cannot draw, often my sketches look like a 3yo drew them. Heck, even a 3yo would do a better job. But, I have lots of ideas and in my head I can virtualise how it will look and whether or not it would work. It's getting those ideas onto paper that is the difficult bit. But I was confident that I can do it and actually make it look good. 

Nonetheless, after explaining to her my concept, (I think I did better explaining orally) she agreed. I was so happy and relieved at that point! Ni happy yang sampai senyum lebar sorang2. I'm even grinning as I'm typing this. :))

And then, off to work I went. Every single day, for more than two weeks, I left office at 5pm on the dot, to make the flowers from tissue papers. I handmade each one and I had so much fun doing them. Granted, there are times when it became so annoying, especially the prep work before actually making the flowers like messuring and cutting, but the process of making each petal was just so much fun for me. I love love the time I spent making them. And it is just the best feeling when what you imagined in your head turned out even better!

I made slightly less than 300 tissue paper flowers. It's a huge photobooth, 8ft by 8ft. When I finally finished the flowers, I was so excited to hot glue them on my material. I took the time to arrange them, so that the flowers are displayed at their best. As I filled one line by one line, I felt so happy. They were turning out to be so gorgeous and that made me happy.

When it was done and displayed, I couldnt help but to feel proud. For actually finishing such a project. It was soo satisfactory for me as well.

After the wedding, I was feeling a bit lost. Came home with nothing to do; no flowers to make, nothing to hot glue, nothing to even fold and cut. I definitely missed the crafting and even the busy-ness. And that's when I thought, "hey, let's do this!"

And of course, yours truly. With my first creation! :)) 

And here's a special shout out to my dearest friend, Sherly who helped me out with the photobooth. She came with me at 5am to set up the photobooth, guys!! Isn't she a good part-time staff? Haha, joking Sherly! But, thanks so muchhh!! xx


So, that's my story!

Fashion Styles: Blouse

If you have been following me on this blog, you’d probably know that I’m such a girly girl. I just love being a girl. Seriously, what’s not to love? We have the best in fashion. Fashion is dedicated to us, women! From hair bands and clips to shoes and stockings, and everything in between.
I had many fashion phases growing up. The “Clueless” inspired fashion; checkered pants, preppy blouses and small furry backpacks, short dresses with platforms ala Baby Spice and so much more. But, as I grow older, I stuck to a classic and simple style. My husband loves it when I’m dressed in a simple skinny jeans/pants and blouse. And that has been my staple since I got married. I admit – I would love to be more adventurous in my styles (like in my younger days) but I don’t think my husband can tolerate that. Lol.
Over the years of experimenting, I have learned what’s good on me and what’s not, what I like and what I dislike. I prefer blouses; smart casual mostly to cotton tshirts. After turning 3…

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!
