The wedding is on 5th February! Are you surprised? No? Nevermind.
I feel like I have heaps to write here but I dont know where to start. After coming back from USM, I have seen myself running here and there for the preparation. Had to attend the pre-marriage course, afterall =.= despite the fact that I’m fully qualified for exemption!! (read here). Haish. Mama says I have to polish back the knowledge that I used to learn at school ages ago. She was like, “Okay, if you think you’re smart enough with the SMU cert that you dont need to go for the course, now tell me what’s the meaning of li’an?”. HEHE. I said I could check it in the book. There must be the answer somewhere..
Hence I was forced to go for the super boring pre-marriage course in the end. And it was even held in Bachok coz one in KB will only be held in mid February. Tak sempat ok.
Then other stuff. Wedding dress. Already made 3 dresses at the tailor coz all ready-made wedding dresses at wedding boutiques are so heavy with stones and beads. That’s so not me. I dont care my dresses dont look like wedding dress anyway. I’d rather look simple. And suddenly Mama says I need to wear traditional songket outfits simply coz everyone in the family wear songket during wedding (herself, and all my aunts & uncles). Cant help but think I’d sweat in the thick songket and pretending I am happy with my appearance.
Pelamin. (to my non-Malaysian friends, do Google image “pelamin” to know what it is.. I dont know if there such thing/word in English). I do my own pelamin. Simply to save my parents’ money from renting it at almost RM2k. And at the same time I can show off my creativity, and now that I have alot of free time now. Though by this day it’s not completely done yet. I even sew the hantaran cover myself, designed my own head gear, the flowers, even the hantaran decoration (with the help of my aunt, of course).
The wedding website. Remember I used to talk about the FlashMX feature.. and I did. It was perfect, with some photos we took in KL when I was there for the Postcrossing meetup. The so-called pre-wedding photos, but taken by tripod :) I had the invitation, the maps, the stories of how we met (Az says many of his friends keep on asking so it would be handy if we just write it in the wedding website). Only later I thought it was too much for now, at least for the invitation of my house reception. I dont feel like showing off alot of our pics there, and the stories about us, when I was gonna give the link to my old colleagues and friends. I CANT LET THEM KNOW I MET AZ ON MY BLOG COZ I DONT WANT THEM TO KNOW I HAVE A BLOG =.= So in the last edit, I deleted everything and only left the invitation. So the wedding website is now simply the invitation, thank you. http://azhar.weds.ilyani.net/ (all readers of ilyani.net are cordially invited too, so please do come if you’re near here ;))
I will also do my own makeup. It’s either I sound over confident with my skill or I just dont like someone stranger as mak andam or makeup artist in my room in early morning painting my face which I dont know how it will turn out to be. And it’s also an excuse for me to splurge alot on makeup stuff lately, finding the best color to wear for the day. I dont even have any bridesmaid or best woman (at least nobody is that close that I really need her to accompany me in the room grooming myself.) I will do everything on my own. I do look like a friendless freak, no? ^_^ Whatever.
And the guests. My parents have invited over 600 guests, and only less than 10 will be my guests/friends whom I invited via FB and the website.
I hope I’ll manage to make another update before the day. Otherwise, see you later, after I’ll officially become Mrs Az :)
