1. the engagement outfits.

alhamdulillah, from top to toe have done successfully except hand bouquet.

i was thinking that red fresh/ artificial flowers will be my hand bouquet. in addition, i would consider pearls (refer above pic) or ferrero roche chocs (refer kina's blog) as my part of hand bouquet.

ribbon and pin to tie the hand bouquet!

2. the mini dais.

i spot the location ord. mother was agree with that and interested to join me diy the mini dais. currently we are still looking for the best design which are simple, economic and practical.

so far i was thinking for items that must be in the list are:

- curtains

mother and i still not finalized the design and colors combo yet. one thing that has been confirm is mother will diy them. i requested mother to diy for 2 windows cause in future can recycle them for my wedding bed room. wink.

i love the idea of diy mini cushions on my mini dais. it's too cute to resist! in fact, those mini cushions will be recycle for my wedding bed room (again). double wink.

- high vases

the truth is i plan to recycle mother's high vases and need to do something on them. there are 2 different design with the same high. i was thinking that i need plain satin to cover them =___="

- artificial flowers

actually, mother has bought 1 bouquet of orchids artificial flowers in high vase. there are 14 sticks of them decor with rattans. nice. what i need to do is buy another 14 sticks and rattans, decor in mother's high vase. simple is it.
