Bride in White, Groom in Black

Dear Lovely Ladies...

Okay I have this insane idea of wanting to color coordinate contrast for my wedding...not nikah...but reception.

So instead of being "sedondon", I wana go night and day....

some brides who have done it ....

Okay I know...putting a pic of kate is lil not in my league...

But honestly....what do you  think? Would it be too weird to pull off?

I dream of him in a midnight blue baju melayu...myself in an off-white kurung...but with high heels of his blue color....midnight blue...

what do you think...honestly... and yes you may say its a bad idea...

Halls and Venues

Dear All,

Alright....the tip of booking a hall or hotel one year in advance isn't new. Plus I think its easier to go a year and a half ahead. But anyways.... I was opting for.....a backyard theme wedding.. I am at that age where, I want something simple... intimate and memorable.

Luckily enough... my parents bought the idea....

Until my aunts and uncles heard of they all agreed its better and practical to try and get a hall.

So we started to list down all the halls....

  1. Dewan Sri Siantan, Putrajaya
  2. Dewan Sri Seroja, Putrajaya ( love this one )
  3. Dewan Melati, Putrajaya
  4. Dewan Seri Endon, Puspanitapuri
  5. Dewan Tun Rahah
  6. Dewan Perdana Felda
  7. Dewan Merak Kayangan
  8. Felda Villa
  9. The Duchess Place
  10. Dewan Gemilang Kelana Jaya ( another favourite )
  11. Dewan Tabung Haji Jalan Tun Razak
  12. Dewan Tabung Haji Kelana Jaya (aka as Taha DKelana )
  13. Dewan MAEPs
  14. Dewan UPM
  15. Dewan Sivik PJ
  16. Dewan Komuniti Bukit Bandaraya Bangsar
  17. Dewan Komuniti Damansara
  18. Putrajaya International Con Cen
  19. Dewan Prima LJT

Well, I am planning for a January 2013 wedding so it seems unlikely get a hall..coz most of em are booked. Funnily my mom still tried calling Felda... for the "kenduri" style wedding, they have free slots in July 2013. Wow.

So the quest continues.

We might end up just doing it at home.

Wedding Plandroid App

I am so very new in the world of apps...but I cant help loving this wedding plandroid app that is working wonders.

It has 4 main segments.

1. Tasks

     -you can easily update the things to do by    months at a time. Delete any unnecessary tasks (i deleted dancing lessons) and u can update it at any time. And there's also a reminder thingy. Just to keep u on track.

2. Guest List

     -my mom has been oushing me to get my guestlist done to see just how many guests we project to attend. At first I was ttying my best...until i discovered this and just added the names and the party. Basically fill in their email add or hp numbers and it can remind your guests to rsvp. It might seem leceh tp after a while seems like an a breeze. Great help.

  ps // ¤also calculates whom you invite to both nikah n reception or just the reception

3. Budget

  - very straight forward. You put in your budget..fill in the breakdown of costs.. N via each detailed coat you can update how much you have paid and what else that needs to be done.all items are editable.

4. Vendors

   -save all your vendors contacts and key in your currwnt status with them.

Lisa Surihani's Nikah Dress


I might be wondering....why zain...why blog this? Its all over the net anyways..

But I gotta hand it to her...It was a beautiful wedding.

The sweetest part about their how much Yusry adores her. Just look at the we he looks at her...
Every girl wants her guy to look at her so adoringly just like he does..

And Lisa embraces his love with such cheerfulness, its like she is filling in all the happiness he had searched for.

But now....lets talk about her dress...

Its by Putra Cosry. Costs a bomb I assume.

It was simple and romantic...just one glitch I am not such a big fan of the ruffles.. but the neckline was so sopan and the details around it was magnificent.

However what I love most with her whole attire was her veil.
Exactly how I want it to be.

Its from tulle with patched lace with some beadings..

And a little bit on the pelamin...

It was simple...romantic with a winter garden all looked very "sejuk". It was a classical night of its own. Loved the setting. The chiavari chairs for all the guests surrounding them akad ceremony. The decorator did a great job.

All in all, I would say it was a sweet wedding, not over the top..

Tudungs for Weddings, A Twist


Its been a long time since I blogged bout tudungs/hijabs and veils...

I just want to share a cute little twist I found while hopping from photographers blogs/webpages looking for ideas and reviewing the latest trends.

I think its very tricky when it comes to tudungs... And lets face it, many brides to be are looking for something different and not just the typical tudung ariani, which however i must say looks fabulous on some brides...but not on me, hence why started researching in depth for ideas.

I found this very pretty bride who managed to get a unique headpiece from layers of lace...

 I believe this is the first layer which is pulled tight back like a bun...

and then

  on the left she had a layer of tudung to cover her neck.... and on the right she topped it all off with a veil.

I think its absolutely gorgeous!

what do you think?
