Of (Proposed) Date and (Some) Dresses Inspiration

Our nikah and reception (my side) is prolly in December.

I already proposed the date to my fiance (hiks, kelakar) and my parents. And they have nothing to object. So, lets hope that H's family agrees too.

I always wanted to have the akad nikah on a Friday. I feel like it is more berkat to have your akad on Friday, being the penghulu of all the days. Well, bukanlah hari lain tak bagus, its just for some unknown reason, I always like Friday.


Trivia: Did you know that in German, Friday is Freitag? Frei is literally free and Tag is day.


Montag, Dienstag, Mittwoch, Donnerstag, Freitag, Samstag, Sonntag


H informed me yesterday that his family would love to have a poolside reception on his side. Theme would be a Western wedding. He'll be wearing a tux! And me, a beautiful flowy dress should be fine. Oh, I can't wait to see H in a tux! Hihi.

I get to choose whatever design I like for the poolside reception but the ultimate decision maker is him. Because he probably know that I'll come up with something simple (again) and he wants something grand-ier, I guess. Something to do with to live up with his family's expectation.

Pfffff, men.

We have not decided on the theme colour yet, but he said that he likes turquoise or a greenish turquoise (huh?), which I'm glad to agree because apart from dull colours like black, white and grey, turquoise, blue and green are among my favourite colours! And I (think I) look good in them!

Some inspiration for the dress (for H reception)

Kaftan dress by Syaiful Baharim worn by the founder of iNNAi Izrin.
I like the intricate Moroccon-style beadings.

Flaming red (or is orange?) dress worn by Ashley Olsen.
I like the simplicity of the dress, that can stand out on its own

I love its sheerness, so romantic.
Romantik apenya jarang? (Bakal) laki aku la yang suke kot. Muahaha.
I love chiffon dresses, enough said.

Yang lain-lain? Tengah carik.....

Oohhhhh! We have a lot of similarities Moose. I want my solemnization to be on Friday for the same reason you stated! And best thing is, 11.11.11 is on Friday! Yay! Heeeee :-)

Poolside wedding? Coolness! In the 4th picture, is thata what you call chiffon? It looks so flowy. Love it. I'm still undecided lah on who to do my dress. Design, I have something in mind for both my events la but his? I dunno. I want something simple, kurung modern maybe but akad dah kurung. Ade design kurung yg menarik and lain tak?

Susahnyeeeee.
