It’s been two weeks since I last let you guys in on my wedding planning! No, it’s not because my other half and I are planning to bring forward our wedding date (hehe, Another Accidental Bride!) but coincidentally, both of us were really busy with work! Fortunately, we managed to squeeze some time over the past two weekends meeting vendors and paying our deposits.
Raihan from OnceUponImages
When Raihan texted me their studio address, I immediately told the other half, “Wedding vendors suka kerja kat tempat pelik-pelik eh?” because the previous time I met Nora Zee, her office was at Chiku Road and it was the first time I ever heard of such a road, heh. OnceUponImages’s studio was situated at Ubi Industrial Park and I thank my lucky stars that the other half is so gifted in looking for weird, unknown places because yours truly can’t read maps for nuts.
Talking to Raihan proved that we had made the right choice in engaging their videography services. He was very interested in how we met each other and crafted a cheeky smile because he said he already had some ideas on how to storyboard our video. He made us feel really comfortable and I was expecting myself to do most of the talking because the other half is kind of reserved but lo and behold, he did most of the talking while I just sat and listened, haha.
We had chosen the Diluso package, which was frankly, sufficient for us.
And I’m sure most of you have seen their latest work – Arin & Eldila – The Proposal.
Sweet hor. Raihan let us watch this on his iPad. Just when I was about to comment how sweet Arin was to come up with such an idea, the other half interjected my silent thoughts by saying,
“Proposal also need video? Then bila kahwin video lagi?”
Aiyoooooooo. For memories sake, cannot meh?
Hafizah from Purple Plumtree
Meeting Kak Fizah at her home proved my above mentioned theory right – Vendors suka tinggal tempat pelik-pelik (pelik by my standards because I stay in the West hiakhiak). We met her at Punggol and had the opportunity to browse through her latest works. I could tell the other half was impressed because he kept telling me gambar dia snap semua cantik!
She explained to us on the various packages (which are affordable, by the way) and we decided to go with The Wedding Affair, priced at $1500.
Until 31 May, she is having an anniversary promotion!
Which means our package is actually below our initial budget! Alhamdulillah, rezeki!
Aidil from Comel Molek
We met Abg Aidil yesterday at his cousin’s place at Tampines. His cousin’s place was so cosy and fantastically furnished that I couldn’t help but ogle at the awesome home decor while talking to him. It didn’t help that I have shifty eyes also, chet.
We loved talking to Abg Aidil. He gave us a lot of tips in choosing our wedding vendors and to watch out for hidden costs because some vendors do practise that. I love the fact that he is transparent about his business and he is genuine in making couples happy with Comel Molek’s services.
By the way, did you know that his cousin (who is also his business partner, Abg Lan) owns SEVEN cats? I am in love with cats. If I weren’t a teacher, I would be cat woman volunteering my time with the cat welfare society. And I have 4 kitties at home so to hear that Abg Lan brings home stray cats to call his own, made me love them even more.
Then Abg Aidil told us how the name Comel Molek came about.
Comel Molek is the name of Abg Lan’s first two cats!
If there was a hidden camera somewhere, I swear you would see how my face instantly lit up and how I grinned from ear to ear like a Cheshire Cat upon hearing that. I squeezed the the other half’s hand and said, “We made the right choice. It’s fate.”
Hahahaha. Merepek right.
We were ecstatic just listening to what Comel Molek has to offer and the other half dengan tak sabarnya told Abg Aidil that we wanted full ceiling deco with the centerpiece as well.
Groomzilla alert, yo!
So from now until September next year, we would have to think about what colour theme would work in our favour and which concept we want. I have a feeling I already have a confirmed concept in mind but we’ll see how it goes 🙂
Here are some of my personal favourites from Comel Meow Molek (oh how I love cats):
I love the drawers on the dais. Don’t ask why eh, I just love looking at them. Hahaha.
There you go. My update after two weeks. Eleventhoctober, this is all for youuuuu *starts singing Janet Jackson’s song*
