I want to cry.
I’ve typed a lot. A lot. Saved it as draft last week and now that I’m back to finish up the post and publish, the draft is nowhere to be found. Sigh.
Anyways, finally received the official wedding photos from Diziq Vidz Motion Pictures. Abang Imran (I presume he’s the founder) was such a pleasant person to work with; so flexible and easygoing from the first consultation to our wedding day itself and lastly till the collection of the photos and videos.
As promised in the previous post (which was way too long ago haha), little details such as wedding shoe, wedding favors, bunga rampai, bouquet, honeymoon will be uploaded in this post.
I did not want to go for high heels basically cos 1) I don’t want my husband to look shorter than me, 2) I am already so tall that people compare me to a pole, wearing heels isn’t going to make it any better, 3) I noticed for most weddings that I attended, I can’t even see the bride’s shoes and 4) I want to be able to wear them out after the event. Most brides either sell them away or just keep it for memories sake?
Initially, I found this customizable wedding shoe on Carousell, wanted to get that the moment my pay is in, butttttttt found out that the exact shoe is sold at Aliexpress (my fav online store btw heh) for a cheaper price. Basically it’s a white wedding shoe and you can choose the height of the heels.
Link to the shoe store here.
All the items that I ordered from this website will reach me maximum by 2 weeks, and I was looking for my shoes one week before the big day lulz. In the end, I went to do some research online for flat wedding shoes.
Came across Pazzion’s website, scrolled through the pictures, shortlisted 4 shoes, asked for my mum’s opinion, she chose one, went to the store at JEM the next day, found the shoe, tried on, paid, wedding shoe saga done.
Presenting to you my $79 wedding shoe lulz:

Fell in love with pillow boxes ever since I saw it most for wedding favors posted in Pinterest. Compared prices sold in Aliexpress and from this lady selling it on Carousell. Turns out the one on Carousell is way cheaper; $220.50 for 700 pieces.
Filled up the boxes with Hershey’s Kisses. The only wholesale seller that I know of that sells these is Radha Exports. The only bad thing is that they do not have the amount that we need at their warehouse so we had to go to 3 value shops to get them. We finished up the stocks at BPP and another one at Fajar/Senja mehehe.
Oh, and because there were no halal indication on any of the packets, I managed to get in contact with the Hershey’s company via their website to do a quick clarification.
If I’m not wrong, we only started packing the chocolates in the boxes 2 or 3 days before the big day cos we didn’t really want the chocolates to stain the boxes due to the oil residue or something like that lol.
Big thanks to Kazi and Abang Izzat mainly for helping out when I’m busy at work.
Step 1: Tape 2 boxes together. (Because giving only 1 box looks kinda pathetic)
Step 2: Open up the packets!
Step 3: Segregate milk and almond chocolates
Step 4: Quality check. There were quite a number of the wrappers that’s destroyed eh. Tsk tsk. AND IT’S ONLY THE ALMONDS ONE! Dk to be upset or glad. 😐
Step 5: Tray pink = All good to be packed. lol
Step 6: Put 5 almond and 5 milk in the boxes.
Step 7: Tie up with the lace and done!
Bought the lace from People’s Park. Had to buy 3 different designs cos the one that I wanted (as shown on above picture) wasn’t enough.
Lace for favors: $127.40 for 110metres
Hershey’s Kisses: $300 for 40 packets
We did the favors in the bedroom cos we wanted to use aircon and the room smells so chocolatey that for the first time I wanted to puke from that smell.
Again, Aliexpress for the supplies. Haha.
$69.58 for 50 pails. If you are planning to get this for your wedding or any events, do read the descriptions or ask the seller because they are either selling it in metal tins or plastic material. I almost bought the ones in plastic material (phew).
I had actually plan to re-use Kazi’s bouquet from her wedding last year, and she agreed. Yes she agreed but she went on to surprise for me a bouquet of my favourite colour woop woop
Had a ball of a time at JB buying the goodies for our candy corner. Walking through aisles, grabbing and throwing whatever we want in the trolley hahaha. Total spent: RM400 = S$150.
That was the goodies. For the equipments, all were from home. My inital layout was exactly as shown below but without the 2 chocolates bottles at the 2 sides. Someone must have bought it so yay more goodies!
1) The 3 jars at the front and the 2-tier stand at the corner left are my mum’s. Hari raya punya la kan hahaha.
2) The yellow mixing bowl is mine which I use for baking.
3) The brown bag thingy at the corner right was purchased from Big Box, which was initially for our guest table.
4) The mini candy dispenser was just for decorating purposes with skittles inside AND I was told that there were some kids that seriously managed to successfully dispense some skittles 😀
5) Lastly, the 3 wooden stands are made by my dad and I simply spray-painted to brown cos it was white when he made it. After spray painting, I pasted on the lace (from Daiso) on the 3 sides of the wood. Why didn’t I paste on the back? Because don’t have enough lace hahahahhaa. The lace comes together with tape all ready on the lace, easier!
A short timelapse of me spray painting the wood stands: here.
Couldn’t be more happier with the service given by Kak Sharifah. She goes all out to make sure that I will get what I want for the booth. I love the backdrop the most.
Just look at the backdrop (!!!!!!!!!!):

Next post on some highlights of the wedding. It won’t be that late. I promise. Heh.
