Honestly, I had hope that I could have done more with the set up. Unfortunately, a series of ‘unfortunate’ events came rolling in my path of setting up the decor according to my ideas. My photographer met with a serious accident and which I only found out 3 days prior to the photoshoot, the chiavari chairs supplier was not forthcoming with her supply and gave a lot of excuses for her delays and though I found a replacement photographer, he only had 2 hours to spare which was not enough time to set up the the decor! So all went wrong but despite the chaotic scene of extreme heat and rushing the decor (sorry Zizan & Ardly) team, the set up was more or less acceptable. Although, in retrospect, I wished I had listen to my gut instinct and brought some cutleries, plates – a proper table set up!
Nevertheless, I have also started designing wedding invitation cards – simple yet attractive. I’m trying to stay away from the norm of hot-stamping, thick plywood covered invites which at the end of the day looks either cheap-ish or cheesy and could not be mailed because it is too bulky & heavy. The wedding invitation; to me – represents the host of the wedding or the “sneak preview” of the wedding. It’s like an acquired taste. Some may want the “let’s just go cheap because people are going to throw it away” cards, others prefer the “Le Grande” look and orders it from Indonesia for the A4 size heavy and bulky invitation where last minute changes are not applicable. Invitations should represent you or at least, the theme of the whole wedding. Embossing is fine as it adds depth to the normally flat card and adding ribbons or lace or crystals will accentuate the design better than hot stamping! The type of paper selected is also very important – many don’t know this but papers can be rather expensive…. I’m going to attempt to design one using recycled paper – provided I can get hold of it…
The theme for the mock up wedding decor was White & Black and the flowers chosen for it was White Roses & Carnations, White Eustomas & Mathiolas, and a tinge of Green Carnations. I would have love to get hold of green hydrangeas but none was available at the florist. Sigh! By the way, these photos were taken by my daughter, Anis, for our record only – professional pictures from Fotofarm will be uploaded soon!
Tea for two... perhaps?
Stationery to complete the theme of the wedding

Guilty! I have not been posting previous events as religiously as before… But stay tune as I will be posting pictures of a mock up wedding set up soon after the photography is done this Saturday. The theme is Black & White & Green and the venue is at Kelab Tasik Putrajaya Presint 8. It has a beautiful view of the Putrajaya Lake and the menu comprises of Malay and Chinese food.
Next month, I shall start compiling and posting mood boards on my blog.
By the way, do watch TV3’s Nona on the 4th of April, yours truly might just be on TV. I was interviewed last 14th March during the wedding of Linda & Firhad.
