The Wedding Checklist

Seeing that I'm single-handedly plan this wedding (ok, Johan does help too!) and loving it soooooooo much, I guess it's just right for me to have a proper wedding checklist. Elly, alangkah bagusnya kalau kehidupan kau pun mempunyai susun atur begini tau!

Like everybody else, I'm working from 7 - 5, have no life most of the time on weekdays and I only have weekends to spare my time planning this wedding crucially. Hahaha...sounds so critical stop being dramatic Elly-ho! It's not like I don't have anyone to help me out, but I prefer to work things out by myself, and the satisfaction from the outcome is priceless. I love being my own wedding planner and I'm proud of that.

Ok, so here's the checklist, to remind me of what's left and what's going on, so I have a proper note to look at every now and then.

Doorgift (nikah, adults and kids) DONE

Catering DONE
Mutiara Catering. Took their Dewan Package. They provide double layer table cloth and chair cover + ribbon in our theme colors. Inclusive of red carpet, glass setting for 2 table buffet, setting for 4 VIP tables and setting for meja pengantin. Free 3-tier wedding cake too. Errr... I don't fancy them much but since it's free and included in the price, so why not? But I'm in the midst of discussion on changing the cake. Just wait. Hehehe.

Pelamin and Deco - DONE
Nurul Arbee will do my mini pelamin, reception pelamin and walkway decoration. I was so fussy I hope she'll get noted of everything I wanted after I heard some mishaps from previous brides who were dealing with her. Decoration entrance is from Dina Halim.

Photographer and Videographer DONE
Took Ali as our OP. He'll cover my pre-wedding shots, both nikah and reception shoot + outdoor for both events. Videographer will be Rufi Latiff.  He is reasonably affordable. Now, that's a plus point!

Makeup - DONE
Booked Lova for nikah and reception. I hope she'll do a good job to me for both event. Payment will be made on the day of the event itself.

Invitation Card DONE
Settled all 800pcs of them. I've started distributing the cards already. 

Candy Table - DONE
Set up a candy/dessert table for reception. Bought all the necessary jars at IKEA already. Candies are settled and cakes have been ordered from That Last Slice. Now I just need to brainstorm a way to decorate the table.

Maid of Honour and Bridesmaids DONE
All bridesmaids for both ceremony have confirmed their availability. Phewwwww!

Entertainment (kompang / traditional dance / band) PENDING
Kompang group is from Johan's old friend. It's settled. But I'm still undecided about traditional dancers tho. As for band, I hire Ezura Entertainment. Gonna start sending them my songlist 3 weeks before the wedding day.

Bunga Pahar, Bunga Telur and Wedding Badges - DONE
I ordered 100pcs of simple bunga telur and bunga pahar each for nikah ceremony and reception at Kompleks PKNS Shah Alam. Wedding badges are from Whizarts. I heart them so much!

Sre and Ahmad will be our emcee for the day. Scripts are ready, but I will finalize the content one week before the actual event.
