Initially I wanted to write on my proposal last year and also the planning of our wedding, but I decided to just go straight to our wedding instead. #lazy
So.. yeap… we are FINALLY married!
Our wedding was back in May, on the 14th. As we are not superstitious nor have any significant date, we chose the date according to our vendors’ availability. Haha. But the date is not too bad too – 140516. =D
We decided to have our wedding at Glasshouse at Seputeh as the location was the perfect one for us. An indoor garden wedding! Josh tend to sweat a lot so having an outdoor wedding in this hot and humid climate will make him and everyone else uncomfortable.
As the both of us are currently based in Singapore, going back to KL to prep for our wedding can be a hassle. We decided to fork out a little bit more cash to ease our burden. I did not want to hire a wedding planner as I wanted the wedding planning to be meaningful and something I would remember. It was tough and stressful, but I’m glad everything went well! I didn’t want to be a bridezilla, so I gave the vendors their freedom to let their creativity shine! All I did was to give them my mood board and give them their space to create. Probably the only thing I was fussy about was my wedding cake, invitation card and wedding dress. Sorry! Lol.
So, since we didn’t have much time, we decided to do our preparation and pick up at Majestic Hotel. Reason for choosing this hotel is because it’s beautiful and very near to Glasshouse!
I got Aivy Yong as my makeup artist. I love how she understand my style by just telling her “simple and natural”.
My wedding dress was custom made by Grey by Bridal Art Gallery. I decided to but the dress and it cost me RM3000. Made to rent is possible too! I love the bag dress provided by them as it is so convenient and neat! I can put 2 dresses inside without having to carry so many bags!
And my shoes is from Aldo! I had difficulty finding that perfect shoes as I dislike blings and would love a simple design.
Josh’s suit is from Zara. He didn’t want to spend so much on custom made suits.
Josh’s treasures. haha. His shoes is from Pedro.
My robe from Plum Pretty Sugar
We engaged Sherly from Tie the Knot as our venue stylist as we didn’t want to be stress on doing all the decors on our own. She’s AMAZING! I trust her with the design and I was very surprised at how it came out to be!
I don’t really have a specific theme like the colours and all, but I love it to be a “beautiful mess” concept. Both Josh and I cannot pull out anything neat. Haha.
We had difficulty finding this pewter wine cup and candle stand so we borrowed from my church in Kuantan. Thank you to WMC Kuantan and Abelene for bringing it to KL!
Buffet spread decor by Tie the Knot!
Our buffet vendor was Big Onion Caterer. They are at the pricier side but their food was AWESOME especially the LAMB! Apparently the Roasted Lamb was the hit of the night, and sadly, we only ordered 2 lambs. Haha. Tak cukup for 250 guests. Lol.
We decided to choose Big Onion as they provide wedding packages where it also includes basic table arrangement and the table and chairs! Just sekaligus food table chair semua in kaotim.
They posted some pictures of the food on their Facebook page. Go there to see!
We got our wedding favours from Cure.Me.Cookies. Their cookies are so yummy!
This table has some our our DIY projects and some styling by Tie the Knot. The stationaries here were from Typo and Bells & Birds! And the Giant Flower was made by my very own father! How awesome is that! Daddy used to do a lot of these craft works long time ago. I asked him to make the flower for me to wake his creativity again. Everyone loves the flowers very much!
And here comes the bride!
And my big brother opening the car door for me haha. We totally broke the norm man. Lol. Usually its the youngest boy in the family but my lil cousin hasn’t arrive so my brother happily opened the door for me. hahaha.

So thankful for Pastor Andrew for flying in from Singapore to officiate our wedding!
After our wedding ceremony, the caterer and Sherly had to put on their armor to transform the hall for dinner! Apparently they took 15 minutes to set up the main table! Amazing work guys!
Amazing how our ushers managed to get our guests to clear the area and get a clean image of the new setup!
Flowers by daddy <3 as our videobooth!
Instead of a photobooth, we opted for a videobooth!
Check out the video!
I’m gonna self-promote my services here LOL:
