Akad Nikah Review

- Hantaran
I made almost all my hantaran by myself with help from my creative cousin, kak Ja. I never knew that making hantaran is quite easy. I specifically told everyone that I dont want any fresh flowers for my hantaran as it is very hard to make sure that the flowers stay fresh all the time. I just stated that I want simple but elegant hantaran. 

I bought the yellow roses and maroon roses from Nona-something and my mum bought the brown bakul from Nilai. My Uncle made the sirih junjung an hour before the akad and it was so beautiful!  
For akad, I gave my beau 5 things; Couple rings which acts as our wedding rings, 3 different kinds of manisan and kuihs, and sirih junjung. 

- Foods

My mum asked her friends to cook up beautiful nasi minyak and everything with some from the foods we made ourselves

- Baju/Tudung/Veil/

For my akad`s baju, my mum tempah it dekat Shah Alam. Sebab kain yang I nak tu, kat area rumah I xd orang yang brani nak buat,. I freakingly love my baju. my kain flows beautifully. 

as for kasut, I bought mine from Outlet in Kyushu when I went there for a soccer match. I got them at 1980yen which was a steal coz the kasut matched my baju perfectly.

I bought my tudung from Tursab and had kedai near Pulau Melaka to iron the bling blings on it. 
From the first time I saw mantilla veil, I knew I wanted to wear it for my wedding. But I cant find any that I like so I sew my veil myself. I bought 2m lace from Kamdar (sale! RM19.90 per meter) and cut it into the shape I thought will be the most beautiful. Then I salvaged all the lace and sew it around the veil. but unfortunately, the lace wasnt enough so I went to Kamdar again and bought another 1.5m of the same material. I also sew some pearl like beads along my veil and beaded it with brown beads. 

- Handbouquet

I had 2 handbouquets. One from the bridal, and the other one, I tempah from Cik Tipah. I wanted a pink flowers with she managed to make them as beautifully as I wanted. 
Some people asked me why didnt I ask for  fresh flowers? Like what I write before, fresh flowers are not only hard to maintain but also very expensive. They also dont last very well.

- Dais

Its pink again. hahaha. I didnt mean it but well..hehehe. We had it done from a bridal center near our house. It was called Eifa Bridal or something.

- Makeup

For nikah, I had my 2 pupu to make me up. hehe. she did my makeup for my tunang too.
