Wedding Badge

Courtesy from One Tree.

An alternative to the usual, boring, normal-looking corsages for family. Most people opted for the flowery corsages to be adorned by the family members. But these badges would be a fun option on your wedding day. Each set comes in 5 badges. Price per set is RM30 (currently they are having an RM10 discount, normal price would be RM40/set!). Wordings can be customised according to your preferences. I'm not too sure about the fonts, colors and design, whether they could be customised as well or not. More info here.

They are based in Penang. Shipping cost would be RM10 to KL. Yes, I did ask them beforehand. But I'm sure Johan won't approve these as they are too modern looking. But I like 'em...

Kalau la Johan bagi, I nak order 3 sets. The first set would be:
  • Father of the Bride

  • Mother of the Bride

  • Father of the Groom

  • Mother of the Groom

  • Maid of Honour

The second set would be:
  • Bridesmaid (4 badges...I intend to have 4 of my friends who are willing to be my bridesmaids)

  • Wedding Fairy (this is for the cousins/friends who help to run the wedding smoothly)

And lastly, the third set would be:
  • Wedding Fairy (5 badges...sangka sangat comel la bagi nama wedding fairy. Kalau cousin lelaki aku, macam la diorang nak pakai badge yang tertulis "FAIRY". Hahaha!)

Berangan la Elly, selagi kau boleh berangan!!!

Bunga Telur

I've never thought much about bunga telur as part of the custom and tradition of Malay weddings. Most of the time, I don't really care much about it. Until last Sunday, I accidentally stumbled upon Nani's website. She makes pretty bunga telur, and the best part of it, they are exactly what I dreamt my bunga telur would be. Hahaha. Why? Because:

  1. She charges reasonably, with the product as pretty as that I won't mind as long as it won't burn a hole in my pocket.
  2. She can custom made the bunga telur according to my preferences.
  3. Plus, she's friendly too. That's important!

Sorry Nani, I curik your pic. Source from here.

I need the bunga telur in like, what? Months ahead kan? Since I'm not rushing, I gave her an ample time to come up with a sample before I approve anything. But with someone who's talented like her, I bet I'll just basically agree with anything that she presents me with. Hihihi. I've never discussed with Johan about this. I just hope he agrees with my choice. This is pretty, lebih-lebih lagi kalau kaler hitam dan merah itu kita matchkan skali. Boleh ek???

Wedding Cake

For my wedding, I'd like to make everything looks good and most importantly, AFFORDABLE! My dresses are cheap, my decos are handmade (I made roses out of paper napkins) and I plan to make my own wedding card (hopefully...). It's time consuming but I've started bit by bit from now. Just wish me luck!

For the wedding cakes...I don't think it's compulsory for our culture to have them. But it's a trend, untuk Malay wedding pun harus ada kek 8 tingkat! But I never like those multi-tiered wedding cakes. Most of them are pretty on the outside but taste yucky in the inside.These happened on most occasions where I've attended the weddings. Frankly, I don't really like wedding cakes. They are a expensive, and I don't intend to spend RM400 on a cake.

So I came up with an idea. I can bake, not that good but people like my cakes. What the heck, I could use my baking skills and bake my very own wedding cake. I read somwhere in a blog where this woman baked 39 pieces cakes and she stacked them up, and she came up with 5 regular size cakes for his brother's wedding. Wooshhhh!

Instead of one-tiered or multi-tiered wedding cake, I came up with an idea of making 3-5 small/regular wedding cakes, in different flavors. So my guest have various cakes to bring home, not just the same one. I'm not that rajin as well, so I might just came up with 3 types of cakes only. They are moist chocolate cake, orange cake and Johan's favorite, cheesecake. My budget for these cakes is RM100 max! Hope they won't exceed my limit.

This is a sample of what my wedding cakes will look like. I mean, the assemble. Different types of cakes, different flavors, different colors. I hope our guests will be delighted.

As for the cakestand, I need to head down to SSF after reading WLT's suggestion. I have a cakestand from Ikano already. But in order to implement my dream of wedding cakes, I need to buy at least 2 more cakestand. Boleh mintak sponsor my dad kut?

Do you think I'll succeed? I mean, making the cakes. Not mintak sponsor my dad. Hukkk!
