ooo rupenye dress silhouette yang i suka tu panggil "sheath" ye ..haha.

but for my tiffany wedding, i prefer something minimalist. limited or pale hue. less fancy stuffs.
something like below, just a piece of flower per tier. and yes, limit to just 2-tiers!
bridal laces i'm looking for, particularly for reception dress & some patchwork for akad nikah outfit.
i'm thinking of akad nikah outfit something like below, chiffon & patched with laces. and later add up with pastel beading.
but i'm not good at estimating how much/metre of laces i would need for patches hehe, tailor/designer would interpret it differently from my hentam estimation, kan. *to-do list : print sample & check with dressmaker*
but basically, my heavy patches would only be for neck/chest part and the rest can keep to minimum for hujung lengan, border baju & border kain. (and for selendang too perhaps?) design would just be typical kurung moden.

i didnt know the couple, happened to stumble upon the piccies while wedding hunting on net.
Knysa & Omar, they called.
they had a perfect one. they themselves a perfect couple - sama cantik & sama padan or bagai pinang dibelah dua like we used to say, kan.
with my plumpy bod, i know i wont look good in songket. but i adore those wearing one for their wedding, and the one that i admire definitely a white songket. Knysa's blue songket with lace by Salikin Sidek was darnnn lovely, and soo matched her traditional wedding theme.

we'll be spending 3 nights in BDO & arrangement nye pun sudah settle. Jakarta je belum, walk-in on weekend agak2 boleh dapat hotel room tak?
basically, we'll be hunting for below :
- hantaran stuffs (telekung)
- bridal lace
- kain for family
- invitation card
i'm not sure how much to expect from this trip as the places we could list out for now were tanah abang, mangga dua, pasar baru and repeating..my visit to weddingku.com (Indon wedding webbie), macam takde pulak vendor yg reside at those places... *blurrrrr*
last time i sempat pegi Tanah Abg je, but those lace yang i jumpe just netting & lace indon yg keras sikit tu..bkn french lace or anything softer. appreciate your opinion & recommendation, if any. especially from those yang dah pegi...
it can be anything...jkt or bdo better, where conveniently to stay, to eat, Indon bridal tailor, cheap & nice doorgift/card etc. and the what nots toooo...thanks!

there's deep down telling me that no matter how modern tiffany theme being exaggerated from my bridezilla fantasy, i still have my soft spot for traditional element/thingy for my wedding. which one of it includes my preference of traditional egg giving, over err - those fancy candles for doorgift.
i didnt recall when this pic was safely kept in my folder, but it was there for quite some time, hmm.
and i love this doorgift so much for firstly, it came in tiffany. and next best thing - it's a miniature of our traditional tekat tepak sirih...with nicely crafted bride & groom names. perhaps more towards VIP doorgifts, since it's a lil pricey hehe..
if you love hydrostone made, you may check them at Inani Craft - one of their showroom in SACC mall. visited once, and for pic above they quoted rm8. extra one ringgit for custom made with names. min order 500 pcs...too much for my so-called VIP guests!
back to my topic - it's all about adding some traditional sense to modern wedding theme!

the fair was as usual, crowded with people despite the kempen berjimat during this economic downturn ehehe. we didnt book anything as the given travel period mostly by Sept 09 (before next MATTA fair), and hell yeah our wedding is still a longgg way to shout about.
i've posted earlier about Krabi and to our surprise there were 2 big booths of Krabi tourism, bukan booth Thailand...tapi Krabi sahajeee haha. yelah all this while, the island always being outshined by the sister islands of Phuket or Koh Samui...sian dier hihi.
3hrs of walkthrough, kutip brochures and borak2 with travel agents. and finally, we found Krabi package we're looking for.
total rm500 nett for 3 nights stay at 4-stars Pavilion Queen's Bay Krabi! Without promo, rm300-500++ per night for superior room, bley?? if u need extra night, just add rm180 p/nite. and good news for honeymooners, for same price they'll give you complimentary upgrade to Suite. honeymooners sahaja. babymoon tak bley hihi.
and if you manage (talking about IF) to get AirAsia's zero ringgit tix, total with tax etc just about rm263 for return flight p/pax.
so, rm500 + (rm263x2) = kire sendiri.
for additional excursion,
- phi phi island trip rm180 (i sound dier dulu i pegi rm100 je, last2 dier kate ok haha)
- 4 islands ( tup + poda + chicken island + phranang cave) rm100
- hong island rm120
- krabi rainforest rm120
- kayaking rm90
- elephant trekking 2 hrs rm90
- James Bond island discovery rm180
rate above are published rate & still NEGOTIABLE, if only you book with hotel itu la.
brochures can be deceiving! as i'm home, i google the hotel & review at tripadvisor.com. some rate it ok while some had bad experience, well lumrah lah. the thumbs down about this hotel (from review) - expensive food & ongoing renovation nearby. not by beachside, but still walking distance to Ao Nang beach. malas sgt, naik lah tuk-tuk. tepuk dada, tanya selera & tanya poket juga kalau nak sume yang first class, kan.
p/s : agak2 thn depan construction tu dah setel ke..? haha. spoil la honeymoon ni ade bising2 kan?

perhaps something different to try on, instead of cuppies or mini cakes for hantaran.
they're CAKE BALLS.

Nona's back with special wedding edition, but it wasn't as juicier as last year's with Fasha Sandha on cover.
But anyway, thumbs up for featuring lots of nice wedding dress!
*white chiffon & beads - all it takes to turn me on!*

we were welcomed with a nice pelamin at the entrance. love the chandelier & the big sofa. brides nowadays seem to love those big & high back seats, kan? more comfy i guess.
i was still on catering hunting, and for now we're quite satisfied with CT Catering & Suri Catering package for dome seating dinner. all we wanted came with less than rm30 p/head, not bad for established caterers ehhe.
Too many cards to choose from, but personally i dont fancy colorful invitation. i'm still the boring bride who just cant get enough of white ehehehe. here's my pick for 80 cents price tag :
