My wedding was on Nov 22, 2015. I had quite a lot of time about 7 months after engagement to prepare myself for the big day. Morning was the marriage and the dinner was a week after. I had to shop a traditional saree for the wedding and the dinner. I chose to wear a lehenga. Since there’s a lot of girls in the family we decided to shopping in India. It was a four days trip.Being a very choosy person I wanted everything to be perfect and unique. Thus, I went to Kanchipuram itself. My engagement and wedding sarees were bought in Babu Shah, Kanchipuram. Just as I wanted it to be !! For dinner I bought a colourful lehenga from Moksha ( RK Salai) chennai. They have a very unique collection of lehengga and they really provide a very good service. Next the Jewels, being a lover of antique jewellery I choose, Mangayar Chidambaram Covering, Chennai and the gold jewellery was from Joyalukkas, KL.
If you plan to shopping at India. I’ll definitely suggest you to go A.S.Babu Sah, because they have all the unique collection. They have variety of sarees in all price range. You can even buy for the entire family. I bought my engagement 1st and 2nd sarees, wedding saree, for my mother, sisters and in laws. All of them were unique in their own style by colour and designs. If you plan to go to A.S.Babu Sah, make sure you be there by 8, if no you won’t have place to choose your saree.
Moksha, it’s a north indian shop, they ask your budget first, then show their collection. You can even buy nice jippa / kurtas for men. Since my hubby didn’t follow us, I dint buy for him.
I bought all of my bangels at Mangaiyar Chidhambaram Covering Wedding & Dancing Jewellers, Chennai. Trust me it was super cheap, when compare over here in Malaysia. I brought my saree, and they mix the bangles for me.
My make up was done by S-Tea Make up for engagement and dinner. She did a fabulous job for both the engeagement and dinner. The best part about her is that she gives you a very natural look and brings out the best in you. Since my wedding was in Kulim I booked Vimas Bridal. I preferred a simple make up with natural look. She able to made it.
Vigor Capital is a north Indian shop. Baiya over there will give you super work. I chose this tailor because its usually the shop that I give my blouse for stitching. They stitch blouses well with unique and customized designs. They charge a bit high but then I somehow feel comfortable giving it to them mainly because they made it very comfortable for me.
I chose nakreze mahendi. But I was quite disappointment with her service. Since she has another bride on the same day. She came early morning and put the mahendi. Since it was in morning I don’t have much time to put it on and The colour didn’t turn out well.
Engagement photography was by Swans.Was quite disappointment with their service. First of all I got my engagement pictures very late, about a month later and all of sudden they disappear to overseas without get my album done. Somehow I able to contact them after two years and get back my album.
Wedding photography was by Kezmax.He is well known for his candid shots and just as expecyed, our wedding pictures were amazing and was complimented by everyone. I have to thank them for that. He followed up with us until delivering the album to us.
Dinner was by wj photography. He really did a very good job. He came early and we able to captured family pictures. His price was very reasonable.
Prewedding was by Posh Wedding. My husband and I decided to not spend much on the pre wedding, we booked Posh Wedding during their exhibition at Malacca. So we really got a good deal. Since my husband’s first love was his bike, we decided to include her also in the pre wedding photos and it really turn out well.
Dinner & Engagement – MHS Dynamics.
Our wedding décor was by MHS Dynamics from Seremban. They did a splendid job. We really loved the look of the stage.
Wedding deco was by DK Perfect.
Engagement food provided by Selvam Restaurant Malacca. The food was totally awful and chilled. Didn’t happy with their service
Wedding food was from Yashana catering. The food was super delicious so book them again for my in-laws wedding.
Dinner was by Jaya Catering. The food was delicious and fresh.
I have booked Ruvela Events, Mr. Velarasan Moorthy, he did a splendid job. His plus point is that he can sing and emcee the event as well. I personally requested him to sing Tum Hi Ho, and he took my heart away. He carried out the event in very professional manner. All of my family members were very happy with his job.
I booked my engagement and dinner cake at Wah Tung Cake Shop, Seremban. We always order cake from her for our family function, and she able to maintain the taste. I ordered Sugee butter cake and chocolate cake for the cupcake. The cake was super delicious and had a very presentable look.
It was my dream to go Maldives ones at life time and my hubby fulfilled my wishes. We booked our package at Matta Fair with ClubMed. It was 4 days 3 nights trip. How can I describe the beauty of Maldives? Maldives is blessing by Mother Nature. It was super relaxing honeymoon trip with international buffet, Bali massage, and snorkeling. Unfortunately, I don’t know how to swim. There was a swimming test, before going snorkeling, where I fail the test and my husband able to get through it. I will advise you to go swimming class first before your honeymoon to ClubMed destination. I had to go to a swimming/water confidence lesson there (I’ve posted a photo with my sifu), able to go snorkeling the next day so we wasted one day there.
