bunga pahar/perenjis

The in-laws finally scrap the idea of having telur pindang to all guests, after many feedbacks from relatives that it’s not a hit as in johor & most probably it would be a waste since not many guests can accept the exotic taste of telur pindang. My fiancé being an obsessed johorian down sikit.....but his fiancee always know how to bring his smile back...”awak, we still got slot for merenjis gift...boleh la kasi telur pindang..” ;) Since they’ll be less than 20pcs, fiancé said if ada yg buang pun he not ralat…I’m glad fiancé got the buy in for his fave tradition gift finally, even not for all.

As for the telur deco, we decided to maintain the traditional form of bunga pahar/perenjis. I ain’t a collector of bunga pahar & never was a fan, but I love the fact it’s a tradition found in our Malay wedding & these differences that actually made up the beauty of one culture from another…hopefully im not bias, tho capricornians are naturally a traditionalist, I only realized my interest for tradition stuffs developed (rapidly) after so much attached with wedding preparations.

nothing to do with our bunga pahar design...



So we ordered few pieces of bunga perenjis for majlis bertandang. Since mostly the perenjis is couple, we as much wanted to avoid giving the same gift to husband & wife. Result from our discussion with decorator last weekend, we will maintain the tradition of bunga pahar giving to perenjis…except, we’ll make different bunga for ladies & gentlemen. I’m pleased with one of the samples; came in sweet combo of silver & pink ... :)

p/s : it's 2 months away friends! ;)

you know what- i've decided to stick to the traditional bunga pahar/ bunga telur gift for the perenjis too. despite of the idea of wanting the fruit- give-away like i've posted earlier. i guess, sticking up to the tradition; comel la. hehhe. but, we can still put a new touch to it. new means, simplicity in its design je. :)

diah..bile u recall my early prep tu sumpah i rasa kite sgt lah old timer, except u're married while i still membujang :P i insist bunga songket as one of perenjis gift..lepas geram sbb tak merasa pakai songket punye pasal hehe :D

alena...i tanak the counter to move...i sgt enjoy wedding prep walaupun byk pening kepala..i know i'll miss every bit of it (which i bet u too kan..)

riena..i pun DIY bunga pahar for hantaran ;D but mine the sempoi version je

mira..love your saying of 'new touch'..brides nowadays dah broaden their perspective..bunga pahar no longer came in expensive tag with meriah colors..less is now obviously more.. :D

quiyah.. i have to agree, some dont prefer the hassle of preparing eggs..very last minute job & the durability pun very short..belum masuk lagi the telur pecah2 kan :D

anil, the exact perenjis only 8 org..very sikit kan, his aunty cut down the no. to avoid ppl waiting lama sgt for makan..

sha, we make extra like belas2 je..in case any excited aunties nak jugak..the pengantin will keep each for themselves too..kenangan berpenat lelah :D
