wedding dress teaser..updated

Eid mubarrak everyone...alhamdulillah i just got back yesterday from both my kampungs and raya was great...pictures will be uploaded when i get a new memory card reader..

anyhow since raya pics still cant be uploaded so i shall upload teaser pictures of my wedding outfit...i only have my nikah and sanding baju...i forgot to take picture of my tandang baju (that one is in champagne)

This is my nikah lace...but of course it will be worn with white satin..not the black/white batik at the background....for my nikah attire, I'm actually partly using my sisters nikah outfit...since we are the same size and body shape...it saves a lot of money and I'm only wearing it for nikah session at the mosque....inshaAllah..My sanding material...when i choose it, alot of people was very worried because of how simple it is (design only at the border for the baju. the rest is plain chiffon)...but i loved it......when they opened the material i straight away fell in love with it...well it actually wouldn't be so much of a problem if i wanted to do a proper wedding dress...but i insisted on a kurung modern....I have always preferred myself in kurung than kebaya, so no matter what people say i do not want to wear a kebaya for my on my wedding day..my body shape does not suit a kebaya......

and to make matters worst..i do not want a train nor a long veil for any of my wedding baju..mum put her foot down and said no dragging anything, since there is a hadith sahih that supports that statement..so i reluctantly follow.....so pretty much it does sound more like a baju nikah then a sanding attire..

finally my designer drew a design that i really liked....he will play with beadings and layers of materials instead....1st fitting will be in 2 months inshaAllah...can't wait

p/s: secretly i do feel sometimes that my wedding dress is too simple..but when i see other brides wedding outfits...i always seem to love the nikah outfits more than reception...

We are the same Sab.

I seem to love nikah outfits more than the reception dress and yes, I too prefer kurung over kebaya. I don't understand why and people thought I'm just way different. I told them I'm not and I'm right =) At least I know there is someone like me.

I love simplicity and I always believe in less is more.

The other day I told my bf that I don't want a wang hantaran. Enough if he gives me a considerable amount of mas kahwin (mahar). One because wang hantaran was never in Islam and two, I thought the money he owns could be utilize somewhere beneficial (like spending on our house). He was okay with it but he's afraid that we'll be trapped in the so called adat. It seems like both our parents nih still nak pegang pada adat jugak...susah kan?

sabby said...

oh this is good news...i tot it's just me who wants a simple wedding baju...yaayy...

btw we too are not going to have wang hantaran...just mas kahwin, i dont want to bebankan future hubby...parents broke the adat when they got married...so they have no problems with us breaking it as well...

other readers, please do not get offended...if tak bebankan both your families and not against our religion i see no problem for any adat..

but for me and habib we need the money elsewhere..to pay for our house and car and future children inshaAllah......

owh how i envy you.
i've initially wanted a kurung moden for the reception as well but when my mom intervened, well lets just say I let her have her way with it.can't wait to see ur reception dress, though!
btw,judging by ur gorgeous pix, i think u'd look amazing be it in kurung,kebaya or anything else ;)

anil lutaze said...

sab..wow...baju nikah wrna grey..cnthek...

mm..skrg zmn dah moden..ada adat kna ikot..ada yg xpe..tp mostly org bg hantaran bkn utk kita si pngtin tp utk wang belanja kenduri...ikotkan duit hntaran tu seciput je brbanding jumlah sebenar kenduri yg parents kita dh belanjakan..me bg bulat2 duit hntaran pd my dad...itu je yg dpt ringnkan beban mereka...sbb duit kite dh abes utk persiapan dn bnde2 lain..hehe..asalkan x mmbebankan groom..itu dah memadai..

haa...yg pnting..dan x haros dilupakan..ucapan utk awak...

Selamat hari raya..maaf zahir batin..

jika ada tersalah kata, terkasar bahsa, terkecil hati...saya mntk maaf ya..

**upload gmbr raya tau... P~

Sabby said...

wawa, mashaAllah thank you for the complement...hey kebaya is very nice for reception..if only i can pull it off..confirm i do kebaya...

anil, bagus sgt u all betul2 give wang hantaran straight to parents..heheh..we all must contohi anil...byk my friends yg mock check je...hutang saja dgn parents...kesian tak cukup duit...

wlt, oh really..i must search online for nora's picture..u see actually i know a alot of poeple that has done it and looked great..even aliah wore a kurung modern at her istana reception and she looked amazing mashaAllah...

fathiyah..mahar sahaja bagi nikah...alhadulillah ada wang yg habib bagi before hand tetapi tidak dibubuh atas hantaran..biarlah amountnya between him, me & both parents...segan nak ditayangkan..nanti akan selalu dibandingkan dengan keluarga and kawan2 yg lain...

Sabby said...

oh ya anil..baju warna putih bukan grey..tulah patut i alihkan kain bawah tu masa nak ambil gambar...

yaya u are reading the book..oh mashaAllah i'm so happy...hehehe..and kain pink tu chiffon bukan lace...

sha betul kan nowadays dah byk pakai kurung..tulah i sedih je when poeple tegur i buat kurung..

p/s: thank you for all the raya wishes...i pun nak minta ampun if i terkasar bahasa...

Hi sab, been reading your blog for a while. well, just in case i'm getting married (which i dont know when). like you and the spasmodic scribbler, i love simpler things in life and less is more. i also prefer nikah outfit than reception outfit and insha allah if my (wedding) day finally come, i'd opt for something classic and never goes out of style like baju kurung too. My mom used to say that baju kurung will always "in" and appropriate in any event and at any age. and i do agree with her. since baju kurung will never goes out of style, you maybe one day can pass your nikah/sanding outfits to your future daughter!
Sorry for such a long comment and btw love the material for your sanding outfit.

Sabby said...

yay now i have you and the spasmodic scribbler...this is the beauty of blogging...i dont feel so alone anymore...

and i agree with u with the timeless fashion thing..my friend got nikah in an antic frechlace kurung that the mum wore during her nikah...and mashaAllah it looked amazing..imagine 30 yrs later, and its still in fashion...

my sanding outfit, should have taken the whole picture..hehehe..border je with beads...the rest of baju and kain is all plain chiffon..i'm so scared if people hv high expectations, because true fact is, its just a simple kurung modern...
