one month.

I’m back from being all depressed and angry. 🙂
I have not totally gotten over what has happened but I am trying, and it’s slowly getting better. Alhamdulillah.
Thank you to The Best Friend who never failed to be there for me with her comforting words and advice. Thank you for knocking some sense into me, Akey. I love you.
And thank you Mr Sunshine for your patience and effort. I love you.
We have ONE MONTH more to go, baby. InshaAllah. 🙂

Oookkaayyy back to my wedding plans.
I have ordered muffins as my door gifts.
There will be no fancy packaging or whatsoever. 🙂
And no ‘VIP’ gifts. All of you who come are VIPs. 🙂

I’m afraid I might have overestimated with the catering (and door gifts).
But I am still waiting for confirmation of attendance from more people. But I guess it’s okay, biar lebih jangan tak cukup eh ?

I have asked Feli to help me with my song selection on that day. She was such a darling as she came up with a looonng list of good love songs. Thank you sayang.
I have not edited the list yet. I plan to add a few nice Malay songs too. 🙂

It looks like we might be going on a honeymoon after all ! Will update on this soon. 🙂

I have so much to do but so little time in KL ! 🙁

red, black and silver ?

Mr Sunshine came down last Friday for a one night’s (sobs) visit.
We went to Jalan TAR with the initial thought of getting some, if not all, of our hantaran stuff, but after seeing and walking through the massive crowd there, we went back after only getting one item.

But we managed to book the cloth for our reception (my side) !
It’s from the same place I sent my baju kurung for nikah which will be ready by the end of October, InshaAllah.
I know I have not revealed the details of the boutique I am hiring, but I do not plan to until I see how my baju kurung looks like. I do not want to end up recommending something I do not like. But it’s in Jalan TAR lah. 🙂
As I have mentioned in my previous post, it has been tough looking for dress of my dreams (cewah) so we’ve decided to rent a newly tailored one.
It’s red satin and black coloured lace with silver details.
I was really hoping to find silver or grey coloured lace to go with the red satin, but they all did not appeal to me. Terpaksa tukar theme yang ada di dalam kepala selama ini.
But I really like how the lace we picked out brings out the red ! I have no regrets so far, except for not taking snapshots of the cloth. 🙁
Ooohh I’m starting to get so excited (and nervous) even though I have not decided on how I want the dress to be designed.
Will only be going to get our measurements after Aidilfitri, so I guess I have ample time to decide and browse through the numerous wedding magazines I have with me. Hehe. I would be happy if anyone else would chip in with some ideas, hehe.
I would also have ample time to lose some inches from this ever expanding hips of mine, I hope.

The official caterer for my reception will be Mutiara Catering.
Confirmed this last Tuesday after a lengthy discussion between Sal and I and Hakimin from Mutiara Catering.
He was really good, as in he was so honest in explaining why I should not get ribbons for plastic chairs etc etc. He seemed genuinely interested to help me, not just out there to suck all the money out of me.

And today, I booked my pelamin !
I opted for the pelamin package I could afford, minus their bersanding outfit.
Went to see them once to discuss colors etc, but it looks like I’m gonna have to talk to them again since I have changed the colour of my dress.
I hope they won’t disappoint !

how many ?

I am on medical leave, and am told to isolate myself from others. 🙁
Mr Sunshine is down with chickenpox. Poor thing.
But today he brought us both some good news.
My future in laws have finally managed to come up with a mutual decision on when the reception (bertandang) on their side would be on.
It will be on January 31st, 2010. InshaAllah.
Alhamdulillah. 🙂

I am grateful that my photographer is OK with the change of date. Thank you thank you Fadza. 🙂
I have heard of some that would not entertain cancellations !
Alhamdulillah. 🙂

Does anyone have an idea on how to know the number of pax I should book for the catering ?
Let’s say I have 700 people on my list. Do I order for 700 ? Or more ? Or less ?
Daddy is telling me not to order for too many as not all of who are invited would come.
It’s true, but how many exactly ?
Argh, tiba tiba rasa serabut.
