I was never that girl who dreamt about her fairy-tale wedding since young; nor was i ever obsessed with the thought of putting on a wedding gown. Imagine my 'cultural shock' when i came upon 'pinterest' and wedding blogs, dedicated to make people spend lots of money for that 'perfect', 'magical' day. Though i must admit, i fell for those dreamy-looking pictures and well-taken photographs too. In fact, i probably even got a little carried away with those tiny details UNTIL sense came back to me.
Am i in love with the idea of a wedding or am i in love with the idea of marrying the one i have been madly in love with?
It all came clear, and now i just pray for a marriage, blessed by God, and definitely by my parents.
So i pretty much mellow down on a lot of aspects, though i was still adamant on DIY-ing some stuff just because i love to add those personal touch.. BUT... one thing that i could not compromise was, the DRESS.
And gosh is finding the perfect gown difficult!
I went searching with Ray and Rachel in KL with only one gown that i kind of like.
I went around all the bridal shops in Taiping with mum and came back with not even one that fits what i was looking for...
in Penang, I FOUND THE DRESS (which both my parents approved of) but was not of my size and could not be altered!!!! *cries*
so finally, i just settled for this gown, which wasn't exactly the ONE, but i guess it was close enough. Plus, i got a pretty sweet deal out of it so i guess i'm happy for now :)
As all the shops forbid photo-taking, my friends, and my mum managed to sneakily steal some shots for me. Though the pictures were not exactly flattering, i thought it would still be fun to share some dresses that i did try on :P
However, none of them were close to what i had in mind.
The actual dress was only seen by some lucky few (my parents - who were there with me through the fitting, and some of my girls - through whatsapp lol ;)
Not even Alex had the slightest clue what i'll be wearing and i like that lol
If all goes well, under God's guidance, provision and protection,
I'll be walking down that isle, with only my closest family and friends, in a small private affair, towards my super awesome groom... in exactly five months ^_______^
i can't wait ;)
