2 June 2012, our house in Puchong host its first wedding ceremony. The other three were held in Kuantan if you may ask. A simple but very merry wedding. Tiring too! Yet still fun thanks to Abang Hisham, Fahada, Aadiyat, Nurul, all the relatives, neighbours and friends for all help given. Not to mention our financier and Cheif D Mission.. Mommy & Daddy as well :)
Even Sorfina and Sahira was all excited for the wedding. This was the first wedding in the family they got to get involoved with so the next will be their dear Maksu Nun's wedding. wonder when that will be. Not too soon i hope. Dik Nun... you reading this?
The wedding preparation started way back in 2011 until the last week and into several stages too.. there were the curtains selections, bridal visit, surveying of caterers, goodies bag, spring cleaning and many more.
I still remember the day we all went curtain hunting. Since Taariq did not have a color theme yet we decided to follow the color that we chose for the curtain.. Boleh tak macam tu? First time in history kot pengantin takde warna pilihan.. No fear.. all the siblings are here! After pointing here there and everywhere, we came to a consensus and finally agreed to go for an english pattern curtain. Imagine..all 14 people pack in a curtain shop giving opinions.. mau tak pening tokey kedai tu.
Then there were the bridal hunting.. this one i did not join because they went on a weekday. Yes, it was during the school holidays but i however to not enjoy that previlege anymore. Sometimes.. i wish i were in the education line.. *sigh*. Anyway, Fahada and Abang Hisham decided that the theme would be emarald green and Taariq agreed.. so that was settled.
Next, we all went to Jakel for our uniforms for the big day. Speaking of Jakel, did you know that we are suppose to pronounce it as 'Jakil' and not 'Jay-kel'? Yup.. it originated from the founders name Mohamad Jakel Ahmad a Johorian that started of with a small business in Muar which then bloom to a Textile Empayar.
Ok, back to the wedding story... Nurul arranged on the Cards, Gifts and made arrangements for the day maid to come to our house several times.. Why? You see, my family loves to keep things... so imagine how many memarable junks we have after living in the same house for more than 15 years. Itu pon after going through the stuffs ada juga barang yang sayang nak dibuang.. sentimental values i guess :)
A day before the wedding, there was another spring cleaning. setting furnitures aside to make way for the Doa Selamat that night. After the ceremony, it was the bridal & canopy team's turn to work their magic.. I didnt realised it took them soooo long sprinkle their fairy dust to perfection..so some of us ended sleeping after 6 in the morning. The setting looks beautiful or was it because of my blurry eyes.. nope.. the pelamin, table setting and everything else do look pretty.
Alhamdulillah, on the big day, the weather was on our side and in general everything went well.
Some hiccups here and there.. but thats another story all together :)
