So, my bf and I are planning to get married in 2015, God-willing, in April of 2015 or somewhere next year.
I am overwhelmed with a lot of things as I live and work in KL but we are both planning to have our wedding in JB because most of my family/friends are in SG. I can't do it in SG because, obviously, our budget is not in SGD but in RM. LOL!
Another issue is that my bf is also overseas right now, so it isn't easy to talk to him and set dates easily, therefore, we liaise through Whatsapp, Skype/Oovoo, Email and etc. LOL! Once his job approves of his leave, he will be visiting me and my family (in KL & SG) to plan out everything, go for our English Islamic Marriage Course in ABIM (Ampang, KL) and settle out some of wedding errands in JB (do bookings/put the deposit for Tok Kadi, look at Event Venue, Catering and Bridal houses)
My Wedding Details
No. of pax: 200-300
Tentative Date: April 11th, 2015 or somewhere in 2015
Event: Solemnization/'Nikah' from 12:30noon - 5pm. Then, the Reception/'Sanding' will be after 8pm onwards
Theme: Base color in 'Champagne' with little pop of colors of a 'Peacock' (dark navy blue, fushcia pink, dark purple and dark green turquoise) Bridesmaids/close friends will all be wearing 'Navy Blue' whereas the guests/family from both sides will be wearing 'Dark Green Turquoise'.
Bridalwear: Planning to rent (One couplewear for Solemnization (Champange/Ivory shade) and another one for Reception (Plum shade) or if making some is cheaper than the rate, will opt to make them then
Makeup Artist: I am still in search for the right one that has the makeup techniques for a bride that I like (can nego within my budget)
Henna Artist: I'd love it if she could come the night before my wedding day to do my henna, both on my hands and feet. Anyone knows who's the best in JB?
Hotel/Dewan: I need it closer to the Custom Checkpoint near Woodlands to JB. I would love it to be within my budget. Definitely not RM100 per head, the lower the better. Doesn't have to be a lavish ballroom- anything convenient from a simple air-conditioned hall to a nice Halal restaurant is fine too.
Catering: Needs to be authentic Johorean taste, but if hotel provide catering, I'd have to find a good one that provides excellent tastes (if not, the pakciks and makciks who will be attended from afar will start complaining about the food -_- So, i'd rather that they are happy with the foods served during our wedding so everyone could be happy!)
Videography/Photography: I am wondering if Ministry of Moments would come down to JB to capture every sweet moment during our wedding. If they do, I'd need to find out how much is their fee
Wedding Planner: Anyone can recommend me someone?
Wedding Deco/Lighting: Need help to know which company in JB is reliable and does proper job (meaning stick to their words type of crew)
Wedding Cake: Would love cream cheese frosting on plain vanilla cake/butter cake. Not a fan of buttercream or fondant. Anyone knows a bakery in JB that does amazing cakes?
Wedding Favors/Berkats: What's the latest thing to give to our guests in our time now? I'm thinking of the traditional bunga telur for Solemnization and then someone nice for everyone during the Reception.
Trying to know everything and plan it all out but being far away from the location of the wedding can be inconvenient.
What's your say about my concerns? Please don't be shy to drop your opinions here okay! \\(^_^)v
Thank you <3
