with 3 months and counting, perhaps it's time to talk about my nikah outfit first kot. to be honest, i was at first being worried sick thinking about whom to do my dress.i'm sure many of the b2b pun selalu dilemma mana nak hantar kan! especially brides to be outside KL...tengok KL areas b2b, kita rasa how lucky they are to be able to send their kain to professionals.
being in penang, and never knew any good dress maker was a challenge at first.. i was asking around and finally was introduced to Raymond Tan from Ray La Mode. it turned out to be this Ray guy has a branch boutique near my hometown... cari punya cari rupanya depan mata ja pun..hihi...my wedding planner talked me into sending my kain nikah to him actually. and before i made up my mind to send the kain i did talk to my friend and see his collections at the boutique...okay la i guess..and i can see that he is specialized in dressess. banyak sangat dress dia buat. my friend pun gave him a good review so i sent my kain that i bought at Jakel hari tu.
besides, many of his cutomers are malay and brides to be.when i was there nak ukur baju, i saw a lot of bags filled with kain nikah for him to sew at the back of his boutique.he said semua baju nikah yang hujung tahun punya.
we sent our kain nikah baru ja lagi...which was last month..memang nervous cos seing other b2b yang nak kawen ujung tahun ni pun baju nikah dah siap cuma nak pakai ja.but syukur, he still accepted our kain...phew!
design for nikah outfit is going to be kurung modern since my body tak sesuai kebaya..hihi..paham2 la..pinggang pun tak dak... ;p anyway, to my surprise when ray did the unofficial sketches he suggested something like this
on the left tu baju melayu my fiance, i specifically told him no sulam-sulaman for him..cos i'm not a fan..i want it to be just a plain baju melayu.
next, is a rough sketch of my nikah outfit...biasa ja kan?? =) hopefully i will be able to show the final product..heheh..nervous jugak..
now, all that left is to be patiently waiting for the dress to complete. our fitting will be in early september. Ya Allah, makbulkanlah impian hambaMu ini untuk kuruskan badan...Amin Yaa Rabbal 'Alamin....
