Staycays in the Month of October! ~#enamjahanams

As I am left with about 52 days away from the wedding! It is making my weekends extremely packed and weekdays extremely tired from work.

To keep me going working in the day, EDM songs have been my companion..while my mind is berjoget joget kat dalam.. my fingers are busy replying emails and drafting whats not..in between time of drafting my itinerary, finalizing my invites and getting all the nitty gritty stuff completed.

So in this blessed October, i have been blocking my weekends for staycays planned by my wonderful gfs!

1st up was a waaay throwback session with the #enamjahanams, i call us the 6 destroyers because we are extremely noisy people!! destroyer of peace betol! Why I said so is because everytime we meet kita nye hello je da terpekik pekik! I believe we are borned with human boom mics in our throat!

17 Oct~ Ana, me, Nurrul & Dy met up for lunch because perut yang SENTIASA LAPAAR needs food to keep the day going!

Shana was waiting at lobby, whom arrived from a wedding and RINA busy siap bilik pengantin dia, main painting-painting with contour brushes.

When we came and checked in into our courtyard room! We rushed in and keep running around and screaming and selfies and photos PLUS videos…buang tebiat betol la! How jakon we can be but for me personally! I love doing that on my work trips being a crazy maniac dpt room CHANTEEEK! Sape tak suka seh….

While keeping ourselves entertained waiting for Rina yang tak sampai sampai…we decided to have our swimming pool time!!

I suck at breathing underwater thou! cam nak lemas please…so after swimming pool time! We were makeup by our Kakak ANA!!! i swear she can become MUA, she did my kening and face for everyone except for Rina….so that’s a total of 5 faces including hers within 3 hours span…touched up biasa jeee but awesome la pleaaaash! I choose a dark lippy coz she has it and i loveeee her dark lippy!

Da melawa! Mcm nak gy Atticca clubbing, hungry nak mampos! Tahan taxi and end up in Lau Pa SAT! gone were the days of wild dancing k kawan-kawan..I now kakak-kakak nak kahwin!!

Came back da tawaf 1 whole Lau Pa Sat walked for a good 15 minutes nak carik ATM! Da berpeluh-peluh…we start at the courtyard from 11 plus all the way to 4am chatting all kinds of stuff..past present and history…it was a good sharing session the fact that we are acquainted to each other for me I believe is a miracle..I would have not known them before this but actually when I do, I have a couple of common close friends that we share and this closeness formed is I believe another form of rezeki from HIM. I may not be the richest gal on the block, but I am rich in quality friendship, insya allah! Alhamdullilah…

The next was the usual breakfast and and i still can’t believe ANA in her onesie..when she 1st mentioned it, I was like wth was that? I have not known what is a onesie but she was sooo cute la pleaseeeee…

We took a short nap aft breakfast and back in the pool we went this time with agenda! torture everyone with Monkey sprayed water at each other! AND i did my ballerina performance for them underwater..sebab ader wedding with LOVE SONGS! SO a hippopotamus ballerina in ME who felt super light in water danced nonstop!!

See that amoy yg heartshaped 2…tak abis abis 1 step korean this gal…

Thank you for giving me so much fun!! sampai berendam i think in total hours was about 4 hours plus…and i have been tegur-ed by Mama in law…eh pengantin da gelap…yes Mama i is not gonna go swimming lama-lama again k!

This is a 1st for us, but thank you for doing this! Super awesome..i love lepak sessions now its equally needed before a wedding….after all the stress!

Thanks my babies!!!

Anyone who knows a good baker yang buat customised wedding cakes? Need your help BTBs…

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????
