Here goes..

Akad Nikah@Solemnization

  1. Kursus Perkahwinan – Planning to attend in July, InsyaAllah
  2. HIV testing – I am a bit confused about how long the test is valid, is it 6 months or 3 ?
  3. Kebenaran berkahwin – Sounds sooo scary.
  4. Wedding rings
  5. Catering – need to estimate the number of family members who will be there. Planning to have a morning akad, followed by a simple light meal for guests.
  6. Kadi and witness – Will be discussing with Daddy.
  7. Hantaran
  8. Hantaran deco – DIY ! Sal has promised to help out with them. 🙂
  9. Nikah outfit, tudung and shoes – I have no idea where and who to send the cloths to.
  10. Make up – I want to try to get an affordable package along with my reception pelamin and outfit
  11. Photography – I have a few choices in mind.
  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.
