The change of plans (part 2)


So now from my previous post, i dah explain how my nikah became more like a reception that nikah..because it was memang suppose to be my reception.

The next decision that we had to make was  how to nikah in a hall, but keep the number small. U see when my sis nikah in the hall terus sambung reception, so it was not a problem. at this point my nikah was only for 200 poeple. 100 for habibs family and 100 for my family...

But the problem is, dewan tu besar, it fits paling sikit that will look cantik is 28 tables..that is 280 people kan..so after weighing our options, I decided, why not for nikah invite all my friends and reception in July, concentrate on my parents friends only..so we will proceed with small reception of 400-500 pax in July

ok, i ordered cards and send sms and facebook msg to all my friends to ajak for my "reception" after my nikah...this was 2 months before the wedding..i had to invite all my friends because i can't invite them for my reeption in july because the hall that we booked for july reception max boleh 450 pax only

so kiranya masa ni the plan is family datang for nikah at 11am, and friends datang from 12pm to 2pm for makan2 for all of my friends...

but during this time,  i punyalah pujuk my sis to kahwin together in July..sebab they were planning to do their wedding either late December 2010 or early 2011...pujuk punya pujuk..finally my sis agreed to kahwin sekali in July...so instead of having a small reception for my parents friend sahaja.we agreed on, my sis nikah 1 day before the reception. and reception ajak everyone..then orang tak payah datang bnyk kali..yelah nanti everybody muak, my family je ada byk function nak kena pergi..n we tak buat during school hols so susah for families to travel far...

So in Jan 2010, my sis go engaged..alhamdulillah..hehehe...ohh i cannot mention how thankful i am to Allah swt, my sis and her fiancĂ©e and parents for agreeing to this arrangement.

our july reception kan dewan boleh muat 450 pax only..we all pun decided dari buat sit down might as well do buffet..

since it was Jan 2010, takkan i nak tarik balik my invitations to all my friends, and tell them ohh my reception dah tukar july pulak..dah lah i dah ajak more then 100 people...Jadi we all pun teruskan jugak with all friends coming for my nikah on Feb 2010...and inshaAllah i will ajak everyone again in july..dah since buat buffet..so boleh ajak everyone.....

of course me and my sis have our own dream wedding correct?? so our parents agree that, nikah we the wedding that we want ...my sis pun dapat plan her dream wedding..and then reception. buat just a simple makan2..

so yes girls, that is the answer to every-bodies question...our reception inshaAlah, will be just a simple makan-makan,..it will look nothing like my nikah...dewan pun i tak ambil the decoration package to save money...

alhamdulillah i already had my dream wedding during my nikah, which is a more important date that i want to remember..and my sister will have her dream wedding during her nikah...inshaAllah...

the amount of times we had to change plans..ohh i dah jadi gila for a while...But Allah SWT knows best..and somehow this was the best arrangements for us alhamdulillah...

p/s: after this i will do an entry on how i saved money during my nikah. I received emails tanya how i can spend so much for my nikah...hehehe..its called wedding cheats..believe it or not, most of the advice came from my decorator.
