Bride semalam haish so the sweet! terserlah seri pengantin!!!!

So pasal package lak i tell you she is sooo flexible la! Alhamdullilah…I am sure banyak will ask “sure or not mesti ader die nye hidden costs kan”..but nope she has explained everything clearly and I am very very happy…

We choosed the 4 baju plus-size package which is $2500, this is inclusive of the following;
– 4 pasang baju
– 2 days make up with no time limit
– Accessories are all provided (eg. fresh flowers, sanggul, brooches, jewellery + etc)
– Henna night
– Fresh flowers bouquet
– FOC accessories + makeup for nikah

Some may think it is expensive, but then again I am a Plus Size bride to be, so our prices nie slalu terlebih…hais! annoying but what to do! nasib badan dok!

Since i also nak bollywood costume as one of my choices and she does not have a plus-size for that, I DO NOT need to pay additional costs for rental ke brand new costume. She will cari for me according to my colour that I wanted. Alhamdullilah! rezeki, amin…..
She is such a nice Mak Andam and so sweet la…Lastly she said, if I lost weight and is able to fit her non PLUS SIZE costumes………drum rolls pleasseeee…..

I can just SWITCH to her other normal packages….ooo shuddup la! Seriously…i have not heard of any bridal andaman which is as flexible as this! and if i don’t think i can get my personal nikah baju i can just tell her and she can just provide hers….omg! I tell you it is amazing….such a nice Mak Andam, very sweet person non pretense…always laugh at me and fiance nye mini menyakat sessions!

Memang la dalam hati nak all those super popular Andamans kan…but well da fully booked pun ader…yg fiance tak berkenan pun lagy banyak….So we make do and go for non-famous yet….or the UNDERDOGS! and alhamdullilah…it was a good deal and package plus a nice person..Insya allah everything will be fine with his blessings…We are just here to plan, everything is determined by HIM…Amin!

Second Vendor Signed!

Ranting last week pasal decors right. I have finally make up my mind to go with Comel Molek!!!

Superbly HAPPY!! So another decision making done…pikir punya pikir, discussed with le fiance and my concerns. Discussed with my sister..discussed with my BFF and still convinced that they are the ONE! Finally I paid the deposit and I am very happy with selecting them. Insya allah we will work together nearing to my wedding date!

So this Sunday…I have appointment with Kak Fifi, my future mak andam insya allah. I have not make any down payment yet so we will sit down with her and hopefully I can get to try some clothes on. Mind you I am particular on looking good despite being PLUS-SIZE! Plus size brides are also allowed to look good ok…..and the funny part is le fiance yang suka sangat with the Mak Andam, Kak Fifi coz yes I must admit she is a very sweet MUA and again chemistry was there….

So THIRD vendor on the way….till I blog again! hehehehe I can’t wait for another adventurous weekend!

Deco Recce-ing

I have been getting quotations from a few preferred vendors for Deco. From yang paling mahal to the middle range. Having this theme in mind, i really wanted it to be somehow executed tapi also thinking of the budget I was a bit tempted to go all out and request for customisation but then again, I could use the savings for other part of the wedding planning. So i have face to face meeting with two vendors yang ader slot available for my wedding date.

1) Wedding Meets Design
First time i saw them, I was quite pleased with their workmanship displayed and their designs. So i thought why not meet up to discuss further on their proposed costs and packages. The first time I met the vendor, Hakim. It was a nice chat and explaining what I wanted or envisioned it to be. It was cool and we got along well. So a final quotation was emailed to me a week after the meeting, where I requested for candy booth and cake, customised deco. But gut feeling wasn’t there, I was still dwelling on the decision nak go ahead ke tak.

Sambil 2, ader la jugak email-email deco lain, but quotations were not up to what I expect it to be.

It was a good proposal by WMD but sebab takde feel cam half-hearted la sangat. I feel cam they don’t get what I was trying to explain, connection was not as strong.

Sooooo…back to googling and looking at other vendors. I have been reading up alot on Comel Molek from other BTBs and also browsed through FB dorang. I was mesmerized by some of their deco and its simplicity but ader Oomph! Impact.

2) Comel Molek

Thus! I fb messaged them and met up with them yesterday. Corresponded with Abg Idil but meet up with Uncle Lan instead. First time meet orang memang la kekok kan..I went alone lagi coz I do not like having too many people with too many feedbacks causing confusion and too much inputs.

First thing he kenal kan diri die…ask my name and explain bout wedding preps.
3 Major Planning:
1) Catering
2) Bridal
3) Deco

And also being comfortable with who you are working with. My exact sentiments and I did mentioned this in my essential wedding planning post. Comfort and connection is key! If you tak click with your vendors mesti tak menjadi or unhappiness will happen.

He never pushed for his deco services. He gave me pointers to ask certain questions with vendors and what to avoid. It was a good connection and conversation. He asked me what kind of bride I think i would be…the pastels kind or the bold colours. I told him I was both…I love calm and suddenly a burst of colours.

I must say… by every minute of the conversation I fell in “love” with this deco company. Uncle Lan hits all the right questions, my concerns. The best part is! Die faham isi hatiku…my vision!! Molek sgt laaaa ader orang faham idea aku nie…

 

Soooo these are the two vendors available for my December 2015 wedding. Anggun Decor, Royal Boudoir, Kasai Sayang are all fully booked.

Belom decide lagy…I still have other decors yang baru masok the wedding scene, ISS weddings mentees; NAF Designs, Qyra Designs and a few more.

Let me sleep about it over the weekend before I decide….Any comments BTBs????
