For HIM & For ME!

ONLY AN EXAMPLE. PICTURES FROM GOOGLE.

 

I know usually when it comes to hantaran normally the girl will buy her own stuff vice versa and then exchange those gifts before the wedding for it to be decorated and designed into nice flowery handicraft which I think very beautifully done, ready to be presented. But I have decided to buy him his gifts and he needs to buy mine. And trust me it is a massive headache!

Well… here is my list {oh! since he decided to give me 7 trays therefore I need to give him 9 trays in return}. WHY? Frankly it has always been the tradition and always an odd number and the bride’s family will reciprocate with 2 more trays; e.g. If the groom’s family decides on 7 trays, the bride’s family must return 9 trays. Get it? Haha.

 

FROM HIM TO ME

Sirih Junjung

{This is a MUST! It’s like the start/head of all other gifts and do note that this is not your ordinary bouquet; the daun sirih (betel leaves) nicely folded into heart-shaped interspersed among the flowers.}

Wedding Band & Engagement Ring

{Since my parents decided no need for engagement ceremony, therefore need to give each other 2 rings!}

Cloth Material

{This one is also customary for the bride—ME, to make it into dress to be worn when visiting his side of family}

Perfume & Body Care Products

Sweets

{I have no idea since he said he will get his mother or aunty to do their traditional sweets}

Jewelleries

{Not sure about what is this going to be either as he said it is their culture to give to the first son’s wife. So let’s wait and see!}

Electronics

{This one is because he is a computer geek. I requested for Dr.Dre’s BEATZ. But I guess I’ll settle with whatever he plans to give me 🙂}

 

Now it is my turn!

FROM ME TO HIM

Sirih Junjung

Wedding Band & Engagement Ring

Al-Quran

{Oh! I bought this when I paid a visit to Mekkah many years ago.}

Watch

Shirt Set With Tie & Cufflinks

{Going to get it from Cuffz! in Pavillion —I think!}

100 Pcs Of Macarons

{Ordering from Babycakes @ GTower —contacted!}

Set of Perfume

{I love him in Polo Black! Yummsss!! LOL.}

Classic Leather Shoe

Electronics

{I have found what I wanted to give him: NINTENDO Wii!}

 

 

I think this is it for now. I forgot again. Yes! For bunga telur/bunga pahar…granny said 50 pcs is more than enough. D’accord then! And my gamelan I found out one of my schoolmate’s dad provide this service so that is also DONE! Scratch off my list 🙂

AKAD & Bridesmaid & dot dot dot …

Last Sunday, I went out wedding shopping with mommy and well, the whole family basically. I was quite amazed at the fact that we’ve actually chosen and decided on what material and design to wear on the big day. For my nikah I have decided to tailor a simple modern baju kurung with chiffon scarf and top with 3 meter cathedral mantilla-lace veil, of course, matching with off-white satin for my man.

I know the lace look plain…but hey managed to get the last piece of this Solstiss French Lace and I purposely bought without any beadings because I want to custom the beadings myself. As my reception going to be very {I mean VERY} traditional Malay wedding and it’s going to be ivory gold…we have decided for my sisters who are going to be my bridesmaids, I got them butter yellow chiffon beaded material and for my family, they are going to wear dark moss green. I hope it will turn out NICE! Whooppeee….

ORCHIDS!

I JUST LOVE ORCHIDS!

And for my day I would have cymbidium orchids and hydrangea. I just hope my wedding planner could find it at our local florist. Heee…

I wanted these orchids so badly I’ve even asked my maid-0f-honor to roam around and look for them as well. DESPERATE? Yesh! Yesh! I planned to have tiffany blue and dark chocolate wedding and due to as usual parents — it is now white silver & ivory gold! I didn’t it is going to be ugly…just not what I’ve imagined. Anyhow at least I don’t have to fork out money. LOL. I just have to sit back and relax and everything being taken care of!!

What more to complaint aye? 😛

Engagement & Wedding…

Hmm…no no it is not mine YET! Soon okay…soon

**keeping my fingers crossed**

 

This Saturday the same date I have a wedding and an engagement to attend and it is not the same couple. My schoolmate is getting married on 11/12/2010 but it is all the way in Kelantan. I did plan to go but now since budget is not allowing me to do so, am attending another friend’s engagement in Malacca.

Upon request I did her map to her house for the event. What do you think? Not that bad aye considering I have no idea where is the place and only based on as usual the most reliable Google Map.
