My Majlis Bersanding Vendors

*entry basi lagi*

It's been more than three months since our wedding. Tapi nak jugak hapdet pasal vendors. Hehe.

Alhamdulillah, our wedding reception went on smoothly. Phew! *wipe sweat off the forehead*

The day may not went off perfectly as planned; i was ready all made up at 11.30am (supposed to go off to the hall at 12.45pm), i didn't get the chance to take even a photo with ALL of my bridesmaids (sedihhh), didn't get to do outdoor photoshoot at Putrajaya as planned (time constraint), and deejay of the day totally sucks..

Despite all that, we had a great time! So happy to see friends and relatives. So glad that ramai orang cakap makanan sedap. So relieved that doorgift semua cukup (even though ada a few people tak dapat. Sebab semasa pengantin datang segala AJK Doorgift meluru ke pelamin tengok pengantin. Maaf!). So kembang hidung bila orang puji baju cantik, especially the emerald green color that we chose (all credit to Hubster. He chose that color).

Alhamdulillah.

Makeup by Amy Janz

Mula jatuh hati dengan makeup Amy Janz ketika melihat majlis pernikahan dan persandingan Farah AF2 dan Ayu Raudhah. Nampak berseri je diorang. Tapi sebab rate Amy Janz adalah out of budget, dipendamkan saja hasrat hati. Pastu si Aslinda dok menyucuk suruh amek Amy jugak (sebab dia pon dah book Amy). "Bila lagi ko nak mekap tebal meletops cantik tahap Ratu Universe ha? Masa ko kawen je lah. Tak payah saving-saving. Gi book Amy Janz sekarang jugak!" And i did.

Hasilnya? Sangat berpuas hati. Walopon saya tak lah kelihatan cantek cam Farah AF2, Ayu Raudhah ataupon Ratu Universe, saya cantek macam saya. Hehe.

 Getting all dolled up!

 Hair time


 Getting ready!


Dais, Walkway, and Bride & Groom's Attire by Glamstylista Boutique.

i got to know Glamstylista Boutique's from a friend (whom i met just once!). Semasa proses men-survey, we were looking for a boutique that offers newly-made bridal attire for rent. Meaning they make the bridal clothes according to our taste and size. Sebabnya husband nak sangat pakai warna emerald green (i admit i was skeptical at first but i'm glad i agreed on emerald green!) and there were not many boutique have that color. Kebetulan Glamstylista tengah buat promotion - no charges for newly-made bridal attire. Harga pakej within budget, we agreed to book them.

The owner, Lissa, dealt with us on everything. She designed the clothes according to what we want (kami mahukan baju cam wedding Elyana kat Mentakab). Pelamin and decoration was done as promised. Customer service was okay. Tak ada case kene tipu ke apa.

The only problem i had was the skirt for my baju kurung modern. The one Glamstylista made was not up to my expectation. It made me look 4 times my size (i'm not kidding - all my friends who saw my dress-fitting pictures said i look FAT). Lissa said they can't alter it. i was frustrated. i ended up making my own mermaid skirt. Will elaborate on that.

Other than that, Glamstylista's services were satisfactory.

 Simple white pelamin


 Naik pelamin!
 i love how our emerald green wedding attire pops out against the white dais and peachy pengapits.


Bride's Mermaid Skirt by Madukara Suteramas

Because i was not satisfied with the skirt that Glamstylista provided (as part of the wedding package) i decided to make one. Linda introduced me to Eusoph from Madukara Suteramas. Hasilnya? Sangat memuaskan! He made me a 16-panel skirt (macam Elyana punya lah), doesn't make me look fatter than i actually was and harga berpatutan.




Catering by Sri Angsana Caterer

i love love LOVE our caterer! Harga murah. Paling penting, ramai tetamu puji lauk kenduri kami sedap. Siap ada yang post kat Facebook. Muahaha. 

Memang tak survey caterer lain sebab dari dulu kalo gi umah orang kawen, paling suka Sri Angsana. Alhamdulillah Sri Angsana free masa wedding kami (only one slot available for December 25, 2011 when we came to book! Kalau lambat sikit memang tak dapat lah).

Antara lauk pauk yang terhidang untuk tetamu adalah nasi bukhari & nasi putih, ayam percik (my favorite! Kadang smpai skang teringat), ikan dory sweet sour, sambal sotong, kari daging, pajeri nenas, acar buah, bersama papedom, minuman dan buah-buahan.

The only downside is the deejay that they provided. Ada orang kata tak dengar sangat suara deejay. Dia pulak tak mainkan lagu yang kitorang dah sediakan (sebab thumbdrive ber-virus katanya). Tapi sebagai pengantin kitorang tak dengar sangat pon. Lepas majlis baru orang bercerita. Huhu.

Servis tip top. They cater to all our needs. Nak tukar itu ini dia layan. Waiter team cepat buat kerja. Thumbs up!

Wedding Cake by Little Bakerina

Wedding cake kami simple sahaja. A small cake with 3 tiers of cupcakes - Oreo and Red Velvet cuppies. Sengaja amek cuppies supaya senang diberi kepada tetamu. Cake sedap, harga pon okay. Dah a few times jugak tempah birthday cuppies with Little Bakerina. Sebab tu tau rasa sedap. We don't like those icing fondant cakes yang cantik tapi manis melampau. That's why we chose Little Bakerina.

Soft Ice Cream by Wafi Ice Cream

For dessert, we decided to treat our guests with soft ice cream. Wafi Ice Cream was our vendor. Service tip top. Senang je amek order. Harga okay. Budak-budak dan mak bapak budak beratur nak ice cream pada hari kejadian. LOL. Contact them here.

Photographer & Videographer

Our official photograper was Mahadhar Mahmood. Love his work. Album and softcopy pictures were given to us in January. Suka album dia! All the photos in this entry are by Mahadhar.

Official videographer was Maze Lensa Studio team. Love working with them. We especially love our wedding highlight. Full video CD was given to us in March. We're satisfied with the work. Sebak bila tengok balik video especially video nikah full dimana suami sebak masa lafaz taklik. PRICELESS!

After 3 months of marriage..

.. Alhamdulillah we're happier than ever! Takda gaduh-gaduh (mintak jauhhh!), susah berenggang, rasa lebih tenang. At the same time we have seperate 'me' time - i have girls day/nights out, he has his boys time.

Semoga kami aman damai, bahagia selalu, dan dilimpahkan rezeki yang halal.

Ameen.
