Both husband and I felt glad that we had our nikah done at Masjid Wilayah..it has sooooo many beautiful spots to shoot for pictures and we grabbed the opportunities with both hands ..
Earlier before I got engage, I already planned not to have any of my wedding events at home cause I didn't want to trouble my family esp my parents..to clear up the house before majlis is one thing and the after-event massive cleaning would be another .. and both are tiring.
Masjid Wilayah has it's own dewan nikah which you don't have to pay for it, and 3 halls..which are
- Dewan Muslimat - can cater up to 200 ppl at a time (rate: RM55/hr)
- Dewan Muslimin - can cater up to 550 ppl at a time; and (rate: RM135/hr)
- Dewan Serbaguna - can cater up to 1500 ppl at a time (rate: RM350/hr)
Soo..we booked one of the hall for our after-nikah casual reception on the afternoon (same day)..plus, we had to split our guests list into two..half would be invited for the siang reception and another half for night reception..otherwise, my night reception will turn out worst than pasar malam.. :)
The only problem that I faced with the masjid management was the issue of having to have a pelamin inside the dewan..it is a larangan masjid to bring in any sort of pelamin, except drapes deco etc for meja beradab..being me ( who always want what I want) I asked MIL to persuad them...lagipon I already paid >50% deposit to my decorater...
Considering myself to be fortunate, finally the management gave in..Alhamdulillah. Lagipon, we convinced them that the pelamin only gonna be used for picture taking and there will be no renjis2 or tepung tawar..
Rental: as above
I choose Tiar Zainal cause I heard that he is good.
Since I had my nikah at 9am, he started working his magic fingers on me right after Subuh..and yea, I had to wake up as early as 5am to get ready...
Like Sue Cantik, he is also very friendly. Tiar is fondly known with his smokey eyes technique..sadly he told me that it will only gonna make me looked old..(oh ya.. I told him that I don't wanna look older than my age, cos i was very frustrated when ppl commented that to me during my engagement)..
With the amount that I've paid him, I'm satisfied with his work...the make up lasted long and not cakey at all. I only washed my face at 5pm and I still looked fresh..
The only thing that I hate for my make over with him was the gigantic sanggul that he made..i should have objected to that. Now when i looked back at my nikah photos, i just find it ugly..surprisingly ramai yg cakap it was ok..hmm..well, it's really subjective
sorry for the quality of the non edited picture
Service charge: RM950
By none than other..the chiffon expert, Syomir Izwa.
Deciding on a designer was quite a tough decision for me..I've been eyeing a few, emailed Zery Zamry for quotation, and even met Rizman Ruzaini..somehow, it just didn't feel right. That was the reason I turned to Syomir..
Final result ----> loved it to the max!
Guess I don't have to write on my experiences working with him..don't think I should reveal it here...... ;p
Price: do email me if you're interested
I decided to have pelamin for nikah a month before the actual date. Since I had it at a mosque, followed by a mini reception, I thought that it would be fair for the guests (to welcome them) as they don't get the chance to see the night reception..
I had difficulty to find a decorater within a tight budget. Kak Wanie from KerjaKahwin not willing to do it cos she wanted to concentrate on the night event..I really like her simple pelamin..sejuk mata memandang and not too sarat
Luckily I found Kak Shaja from Shajaratul Design 2 weeks before my akad..she saved my life!!..with one fruitful meet up, the final outcome was just like the one that I imagined!!..kudos to Kak Shaja, dah la comel..peramah pulak tu :)
Price: RM1500 (very affordable for a one panel pelamin kan!)
What else I can say bout this newbie...they will never disappoint you!!
Thanks to Ashylla and not to forget Mas from whitelacetale.weddings!!!!
I don't have to explain in details on how I wanted my hantaran to be..they can read my mind!!!hahaha.. I just told them I want it to be different and I want to have a bear grass to be part of the flower arrangement..I even asked them to choose the flowers for me..
With the last minute tasks that I've given them plus a full trust, true enuff, they never disappoint me :)
Price: email them and you'll be surprised! :)
Can't talk much cos I got it for free!!..it was done by my neighbour who has a natural talent for this artsy thingy :)
One thing I regretted was that I only got it done the night before..the next morning the henna didn't really turned into an angry red..but towards the evening, it got better. Well, nobody warned me that applying henna can be quiet long, at least 3-4hrs !!!!..
But...Alhamdulillah..and stop regretting Tahirah!
Got it all settled by my mom, MIL and my aunt.. :) they are very helpful..
We gave out 3 things
Price: Box RM1/per unit
TQ tag RM0.30/pc
All in all, I must say that I had a beautiful event at Masjid Wilayah.. :)
