hocus pocus, abracadabra.

I am really glad to be surrounded by business-minded friends who put their creativity to good use. One of such friend is Diyanah, a fellow NIE mate! I was quite blown away by the card designs that she and her team at Hocus Pocus have been uploading on their Instagram and Ili had also recommended that I approach them to design my card for me. So…. Why not kan?

Can I say that the card that they had designed for me is so spot-on? They really adhered to my requests – something teal, lacey and has a super bike in it! Not only that, the customized map they had inserted in was really pretty! They were accommodating to my feedback and would make changes accordingly 🙂

Here are some of their awesome card designs!

Amazing, right? Sometimes I really wish I was au fait in the use of Photoshop or Illustrator instead of only Paint!

Anyway, I have sent my cards for printing at Adam Hawa Kreatif (special thanks to Nazz for the heads-up!). They are very affordably-priced, but I will update more about their printing quality and service once I collect the cards end of this month, In Shaa Allah!

colour me pastel.

I was very inspired after reading Farhanah’s entry on colour schemes that I’ve desired to look see look see on which colour schemes would work well with my personality as well as the other half’s. I roughly know what kind of concept and feel I want for my wedding so it’s just a matter of the colour combination I’d have to think about. Partly because Abg Aidil told us to think through on the colours we want and which concept suits us best.

I remembered asking the other half which concept he wants for our wedding. Without hesitance, he told me he wants a prison concept, where guests will have to eat at long tables with their hands chained. Our family members will be equipped with batons to check the amount of duit salam given by the guests (or in this case, prisoners hahaha).

After he answered that, I knew that I would be in charge, decor wise. But it was hilarious just listening to him go on and on about ‘his choice of concept’ and I, being a visual learner, had to visualize the whole prison-themed wedding in my head. Back to my colour inspirations!

So far this colour combination takes the top spot for now:

Pastel pink, mint green & grey

So while my colour scheme is that, our families will be decked in:

Pastel blue and purple

I love pastel. I love the softness and simplicity of pastel colours. Of course these are only my vision. It still needs approval by Mother and the other half.

Initially I had also considered this colour combination:

But as time went by, I realized this combination doesn’t appeal to me anymore hahaha. I know it’s a bit too early to finalize the colour scheme for my wedding but hey, it doesn’t hurt to play around with colours while I still have 16 months left before meeting Comel Molek.

By the way, I used Combo Maker for the colour ‘swatches’ and FindTheData for the colours hex codes. I might come up with a mood board too, once I get approval 🙂
