However, I promise I will continue with the reviews that I owe you guys. Soon, insya Allah.
Little people know that there were mishaps happened on the wedding day. Oh yes, a simple wedding such as mine also had its fair share of misfortune. Naturally, I was upset. Wait, I was furious but decided to let it all go on the day itself. Why? Because, if your only dream is to be married to your beloved fiance and that the akad is the only thing that matters the most to you, then cliche enough, everything else doesn't matter. So it happened to me. And I let it go knowing that at that time, I am already his wife. And that what matters the most, to me.
Let me tell you what exactly had happened.
- The caterer (from
I had no control over the set up of the main table and all because they were late, remember? It didn't surprise me that it turned out to be so old fashion and fugly. The only modern looking piece at the so-called VIP tent was the centerpiece and the paper lanterns hung at the tent.

Food presentation was out. I had neither Udang Panjat nor Ayam Golek Berhias as the main dish. It was like dining at a warung. Food was cold and tasteless (this probably to the fact that I was pissed off). I don't know about the rest but I was not enjoying the food, at all. The caterer gets bad review from me, for life. They lucky that they got my parents as their client. Had they had me, they'll be miserably in hell.
- The DJ (Syok Sendiri)
This is also another mood spoiler. A good one at it. For someone who listen to various kind of music genres, from Indie to Pop to Jazz to Oldies, wedding songs selection is somewhat crucial to me. I had handpicked different genres of wedding songs from Indie, Jazz, Oldies and Pop in three languages (German, Malay and English) only to hear Memori Daun Pisang being played at my wedding! Trust me, had my husband weren't there to calm me down, I'd go and slap the DJ for his song choices had offended me for I consider myself to have good taste in music. I instructed my sister to politely ask him to play MY songs only for him to brush her off. How rude! And he had the nerve to ask my dad for RM 250 the next day when he told us it was only RM 150! Lucky, there was no karaoke session or I'd went ballistic!
Some people really has the nerve to ruin other people's wedding.
Since I had nikah and reception on the same day, naturally I was dolled up twice. I faced no problem during the nikah makeup session. Kak Ram (MUA) was punctual and I love his touch. But during the second session, it was either the eyeshadow pigment accidentally got into my eyes or my contact lens got dirty that it redden my left eye. Makeup was abruptly stopped and we had to wait for my cousin to buy Eye Mo to ease the redness. The redness subdued but it still was visible. Because of that I was late and my poor husband and his whole rombongan had to wait for me at the porch as he didn't get my SMS to come a bit late. Oh well, a bride got to do what a bride got to do. Fashionably late, that is. Hehe.
So ladies, keep Eyo Mo in handy, ok?

- Last minute drama
What is a wedding without all the unnecessary drama, right? A know-it-all aunt masuk campur few minutes before my husband's rombongan came and tried to change all the plans that had been made months before. She went yapping about the set up of the hantaran trays and what not, about the carpet arrangement, (honestly who would bother about the carpet on the floor?) that my mother went all pasrah and had to mengadu to me. Guess what did I say?
"I don't give a damn (for fuck might offended my mother at that times - but wait, I think I did say fuck, haha) about what she thinks, today is my wedding day!! My, my, my!"
That my mother had to shut that particular aunt up. I didn't know what exactly my mother said, but when I came out of the room, everything looked exactly like it had been planned before. Either that or I didn't notice and couldn't be bothered at all. HAHA.
Lesson learned; Do not mess up with a bride especially when she's having her period. I repeat, DO NOT! HAHA.
- OP came alone
We took a package and in that package 2 OP should be there to cover our wedding. Our OP's friend bailed out on him last minute so we were left with only him covering for the whole 2 events. I am not upset because it was not entirely his fault but we are looking for some kind of compensation. This issue is still pending but I hope H will bring out his best negotiating skill. I don't know if my OP knows/reads my blog but if you're reading this, kindly thinks the best way because we pay good money based on the package that we took.
Well, that are the only mishaps that I could think of right now. I am in a way not still bitter over what had happened but it's just that I feel the need to share and who knows, maybe 5 or 10 years from now, can and had good laugh over these.
