My Nikah Attire

As some of you might already know, I bought my nikah attire online. Heck, I literally bought most of my wedding stuffs online. Haha! My nikah attire is actually a jubah and was tailored to measure, without any extra charges. Yeay! I should be thankful for that.

After 3-week upon ordering, I received the jubah as what I have expected. Simple and flowy. Pretty, nonetheless, considering how cheap it was when I paid the bill.

Then I sent it over to Zaza for beadings around the hemline and neckline after I realized the jubah needs some blings to spice it up. There were dramas actually. I am fussy, I admit that. The first time I collect it from her and paid the amount, I complained so much. And I sent it back to her for alterations and specifically told her I wanted more blings compared to what she previously sewn on.

When it was time for me to collect the jubah for the second time, I felt so devastated. Again. It's not like what I have imagined. With the amount of money I paid to her, I think I should get a lot more than what I have gotten for the jubah. There were extra charges, obviously, because of my certain demands. And I still haven't pay her the extra charges because I felt cheated. But my mom said the beadings are okay, I can go for more blings on the tudung later on.

Ok. I am obviously very fussy because I cannot relate to whatever my mom said.

The beadings on the jubah.

One week later, I  took out the jubah from the closet and have a look again. I felt like the jubah is missing something, but I finally come to my senses and think that what Zaza did for the beadings are not too bad after all. I should be thankful to her because she spent her time sewing and re-do the beads and coping with my ultimatum. Haha! Sure, I am not 100% satisfied with her work, but what can I do? Things have been done and there's nothing much I can do because I can't just think of any way to ammend it. So just let it be. I couldn't care much now because at the end of the day, what matters most is that the ceremony went well. Baju itu tidak penting. It's just a part of the event.

dear i pun experienced the same thing with all my wedding outfits as i'm not 100% satisfied with it. so i know the feeling. but an ex-bride once told me that on dat very day, with the makeup, accessories and all u'll definitely look gorgeous and everything will turn out okay. and yeah i'm praying really hard on that (as i want to believe what she said to me). so m hoping the same thing to u dear. good luck! :)

Your baju nikah sangat sweet and simple. Just the way I like it.. Like I always say, don't let the little details get in the way. What matters most is the Nikah itself and the marriage that follows.. Plus, like Aim said, with the make up and everything, you WILL look gorgeous! ;)
