the make over
I was dolled up by Sue Cantik...why him?..because he's everybody all time favourite..(of cos I wanna try him!)... many other ex-brides has done reviews on him, and so far I never heard a bad ones...semua puas hati with his work including me. Needless to say, Sue Cantik painted my face 'cantik'...
You won't regret taking him..during the make over, there were no moment of silent but laughter all the way because he was just soooo funny..he's very detailed in everything and always smile as if you turned into a cinderella..it was worth all the penny I paid him
Between the two make up session that I had (nikah & reception), husband loved the one that was done by Sue Cantik, and some of my friends prefers the one by Tiar..but me..I LOVE BOTH!!
For my bridesmaid, I got my cousin who is still a uni student to help them get ready..she is not a makeup artist but she just have a natural talent to paint people's face :) thanks to her I got to save some moolah there!..hehe

Well..maybe Sue is not the best with handling tudung..if u see the picture below, my tudung looked quite serabut..majlis baru nak start and belum sempat pun puas duduk atas pelamin, tudung dah buat hal..I did feel comfortable but it doesn't look neat at all..unlike my akad, I just love the way my tudung are..duduk diam2 tak buat hal..
Soo girls, make sure you feel comfortable with your tudung and make sure it will stay neat throughout the majlis..

Tiar Zainal and Sue Cantik did a wonderful make up for me..but I just ruined it. My face memang naturally ada this prominent nasolabial fold or in other word smile line/garisan antara hidung and mulut..hmmm..ok..whatever you call it...both of them dah bagitau awal2 lagi that it wasn't because of their make up, but memang my face dah macam tu...it makes me look old in the photos!..
Let's not forget about the groom..hehe. He also got the chance untuk disolek oleh Sue. He felt a bit awkward though..I yg forced dia!hehe..
This handsome groom of mine (ehem..I know he'll be reading this ;p) got high taste you know..hehe..His 3 piece suite was double the price than my dress!!..He was really2 excited about it that dia tak habis2 remind kan si Jimmy (the tailor) that he wanted something like Tom Ford (yes...he's a big fan of James Bond!)
I also asked Kak Wanie to make a corsage for Hadi that matches my handbouquet..
I had my reception outfit done by Syomir. I opted something simple but he gave me something simpler..like I said in my previous entry, it didn't have any wow factor..yeah, I admit it..it was not as what I expected. But my mother loved it..she loves to keep everything simple. Just like Hadi...
Nevertheless, I still loved the buttons at the back of the dress and the short trail...

The veil was too short than what I expected..and I looked like an Italian lady dalam movie The Godfather tu..sape penah tengok??honestly, what do you think about my veil?
sometimes I like it, sometimes I don't..or maybe I'm a bit too rigid when it comes about fashion

The beading was so little that you can hardly see it..I wish I can have it abit more sarat soo that the dress won't look too dull..(tapi Hadi tak suka!...dia selalu cakap "less is more"..and "simplicity is genius"...ok fine)
For my 6 beautiful ladies, I got them a purple chiffon silk with a cheap satin lining from Jakel..with help from someone, I got a designer price and it saved me RM80 each, soo RM80x6...you solve the equation..best sangat dapat save duit! :)
I let them to decide on the design/tailoring..but I told them that I only want kaftan or Grecian inspired dress..no baju kurung allowed..hehe. They put a lot of effort..google-ing here and there..buy magazines..and they always called me to get my approval or opinions..hehehe
It wasn't my intention at all to trouble them..the reasons I wanted to have all the 6 bridesmaid because they are all special to me..I wanted them to be close to me on my special day...and most of all I wanted them to enjoy themselves and be part of my day!!
Sera was the only one who wore kaftan that night..I loved it!tak habis2 I puji dia malam tu..tailor yang jahit baju dia is the same tailor who did my baju tunang..
For Saleha and Enor, they sent the cloth to this young designer introduced by Ederq during Blogger & Brides Gathering last April. She's very talented..(and now I know where to send my baju raya after this) :)
I just bought a pair and I wore it for both events...I didn't see any point why I should buy 2 pairs because I don't normally wear heels...and to wear those heels during my majlis..arghhh...really killing me ok!!
Kasut tu pon I bought it for half than the original price..I got LEWRE's membership card. Every year on my birthday month I will get to spend at the boutique for maximum of 5 items for 50% discounts each...every year ok!.. :) soo, memang setahun sekali I'll borong 5 kasut sekaligus..lepas tu simpan dalam almari tak guna ;p
Soo now...we are ready for the reception...
tapi haruslah posing dulu... :)
InshaAllah, I will write about the reception story on my next entry...hope it is still not too late :)
