  3. Kebenaran berkahwin – Sounds sooo scary.
  4. Wedding rings

  6. Kadi and witness – Will be discussing with Daddy.
  7. Hantaran
  8. Hantaran deco – DIY ! Sal has promised to help out with them. 🙂

  12. Bed & bedroom deco – Not planning to have a pelamin for my akad as we will be solemnized in a mosque, so a ‘pengantin room’ would suffice. Not thinking of hiring anyone, I can do this myself. I think.
