Epitome of vintage. Cantiknya. *pengsan*

Yes. I am a the queen of drama queen. Life without drama is dull. But too much drama suck the life out of me. Trying to be drama-less by dreaming. Say hello to yellow vintage dream dress. 

Jatuh cinta untuk ke berapa kali entah. =)

Now, ain't that lovely. I'm a sucker for everything vintage and simple.

A friend once said to me that if one is destined to be soul mates forever, things shouldn't be too difficult. In a way I agree. But it is pretty much subjective. Maybe the difficulty is a learning curve for us to be patient. To compromise. To be thankful and grateful of what is bestowed upon us. 

If everything is easy breezy, I think I'd forget. I'd take things for granted. I'd gloat. 

Some have it easy, some have it difficult. That is just how life is right?

Proposal Rejected

Remember this? Unfortunately the Mother of bride-to-be rejected it. Since she is my wedding planner and knowingly so she has exquisite taste (read note: the sisters and I pow her h/bags, shoes, scarves, clothes she can no longer fit. that is how we trust her taste), heavyhearted I compromise. Hence, a new color palette!!  Behold! 

Pastel is still the way to go. Alright. I give in. Nice color combo for Nikah no? But I am not giving up having an electrifying color shoes for the nikah and his bertandang. Since everything planned will be super simple. My only sweet escape would be my shoes. =) 

The option for Reception is below. The combination of lilac/light purple and light yellow seems appealing enough to me.

Again, these are just proposals and it may not even be the color palette at the end of the day. 

This is just for the fun of it as i love love playing with colors.

Back to the drawing board!

Invitation inspired

Credits to my current favorite mat salleh wedding blog

How cute is the wedding invitation. Simple, yet it serves its function i.e. to invite guests for the wedding reception. A definite "maybe" prototype for my wedding invitation. 

Ah yes. The planning begins. Yes. But the expected total cost is overwhelming. Even without the frills.  No Joke!

Well, good luck to us!

Not from my OP but from Mel's camera.
It was obvious that I felt awkward him looking at me like that.

I told my OP I didn't want many posey-like pictures for I love emotions to be captured on camera rather than static poses. 

I think this was captured beautifully. Thanks Mel('s friend).

Ada lagi gambar Love made funny faces.
That have to wait from the OP.

Till later!

But we meet in the middle. 
Nothing superficial.
We get on each others nerve as much.

Tips to get around guys who are event-inapt is to equate events with work.
Also NEVER underestimate his interest and do get clearance/approval for EVERYTHING.
Something I overlooked post-engagement.

However, this is an experience on its own.
Marriage ain't going to solve problems.
This is, like it or not a probationary period.

<3, we will survive this, no?

Bring it ON!

Pop goes the color!

Though pastel colors are the safest for any occasion but no harm trying something different, no? I love colors!!

Merisik; electric blue.
Engagement; hues of orange.


Fuchsia, light pink and navy blue. Fit for a summer wedding, they say. We have summer all year long. =)

I was thinking of combination off white with fuchsia but this is better! Will present to the Board of Approval later.

This is fun!

Hijabs inspired!

Well, obviously I don't have either one's beauty. They are MasyaAllah so very pretty. 

But I'm attracted to their hijabs of which I'm so sure could be re-used for other occassions. Oh so simple but oh so classy and elegant! Let's see if I can pull this.

The previous is done by this oh-so-talented designer of whom I've contacted and hopefully we'll be working together! *excited* *cross-fingers*

The latter picture was taken from here. Credits to the blog owner! Credits as well to whoever made YM's dress!

Jatuh cinta. 

But of course subject to further discussion and approval by many other Bosses and Consultants. *waves mother* *waves sister* *waves Love*. Approved. No?

6 months ago I was marked.

6 months later:

Witnessed by families.

Accompanied by best friends forever. Truly! :')

By his sister. Arwah is so deeply missed by everyone. Al-fatihah. Hence, a lil bit emotional.

I am now engaged.  Engaged. yup. Engaged. heee.

It was simple as I imagined it to be. 

Make up "artist", photographer and videographer were all my friends. Melati, Ezran and Tamimi; u guys rock-lah!!

The food was by the family's trusted and frequent caterer.

All flower arrangements, decorations and hantarans was DYIed by everyone in the family including cousins! *wave ina*

Good tailoring was by my trusted tailor. Design was by all the chickas in the family. Of course mom included!

No veil. No hand flower. No favours. Just how I like it to be.

It ain't about the ring. It ain't about how beautiful or simple the hantarans are. It ain't about the photographs. It's much much more than that.

It's about two families. It's about commitment. It's about responsibility.

Of course it wasn't perfect to the "T". Since when was I a fan of perfection? Hehehe. But everything went well. Super grateful and thankful. Alhamdulillah.

Love, let's start our little project together. You and I as boss and employer. Reward: Happiness in life and the hereafter. Cheesy. I know. Can't wait!! ngee. =)

This was before. The after; later!

Much love to all! Really!

if only this blog is not read by many. 
if only one no scrap that, everyone could be judgmental-less. 
i am deeply hurt. 
if life could really be simple.
if perfection does not need to exist.
I'd be happier.
I may be selfish.
But not always.
I keep feelings deep inside.
I thought about it much.
I am convinced. Still am convinced.
But the pressure is insane.
The competition is incomprehensible.
I can't take it.
I need to let it out.
It's raining.
So is my eyes.
