Yup, nearly to one year of my wedding anniversary. Changes? Hum..not much I guess. Besides having to travelling back and forth to Kuching, the rest are mostly the same. Yes, my husband is working in Kuching, and God knows how much of sacrifises that we both made during the time.
I still very much `addicted' blog-stalking others ex-brides and b2b blogs. I guess admiring the beautiful glimpse of white dais, fresh flowers and splendid master works on (mostly) the brides' attire do endure the pain of being in LDR. There were times when bad thoughts popped in my mind `Can I re-do this part in my wedding day to this one'. Well, we can never turn back time,kn? But; seriously, if I were given just one chance to change some part of the wedding day, I would....
a) Not buy the second hand Coach leather tote as for my hantaran. Because it cost me RM 900 and the quality is (of course) not the same as the first hand tote. Bodoh betul I at that time. Mmg sgt gelojoh, tak fikir pjg! I have bought another unbranded leather hangbag kat Guangzhou for RM 70,which by far lg better quality. RM 900 tu kalau simpan ASB, dah dpt RM 63 every year as dividen =(
b) To hire only one vendor for dais and some deco i.e. walkways. I was so into this one dais, tak care lgsg to look at other vendors. 2 days before the wedding day, suddenly baru terfikir, takkan dpn rumah nak bare je, without any deco. Then I crossed to one b2b blog who hired this one vendor near my house; which provide way better dais and some walkways. Aduh, membazir lg.. =( I askes this second vendor if I were to take a dais and this walkways, how much would she charge me. She simply stated less than RM 1000. I have already spent RM 900 only for the first dais =( Dahla the first vendor charged me for the transportation because she came all the way from Klang. The second vendor did not charge on the transportation sbb she is so near to my place. I have unnecessarily membazir RM 500 on this..
c) Not to have the so-called wedding gown as my wedding attire. Now, that attire is in my wardrobe; tak tau nak buat apa.Hem...I should have just buat baju kurung moden jer, or at least, baju kurung. At least blh pki lg...Membazir RM 250..(baju kurung moden would have been only RM 200)
d) Properly informed both my parents and my aunty (who was helping me on to manage the whole day) on flow of the ceremony. Due to that imporper plan, we have missed the family photograph session. Who would missed this session on their wedding day (except me!)? To make up for this faulty, I have to call back all my family members the coming week, for another photography session. Bodohkan? My third sister was not in the picture because she had an exam that week, I have to pay again to the MUA, we have to buy another flight ticket for my husband to come back, ibu have to pay again some amount of money for the food, I missed most of my cousins snce most of them couldt show up, apa lagi? owh, not to mention, at that day, dais pun vendor dah ambil balik. So, blh tak kawin lg skali?! We again membazir nearly RM 800 (for the MUA, flight ticket, food)
e) Properly plan the honeymoon. Due to lack of experience in planning trips, instead of honeymoon in Pulau Perhentian, we both were `terhenti' at Tok Bali. Yes people, we spent our honeymoon in Tok Bali! The weather was very bad in the evening, that we didnt dare to go on the boat again. So, we lost half of the money we paid to Bubu Resort in Pulau Perhentian. Plus to pay another amount of money to other hotels in Tok Bali. We should have checked the weather prior leaving KL. So, this shall be a good experience to both of us; the inexperience honeymooners.For this one we lost RM 350 for the cancellation, another RM 400 for the accomodation and transporation in Tok Bali.
So, let see how much of money have we lost throughtout the improper planning and poor judgement + being gelojoh = RM 3200 ladies and gentlemen! MMg sgt membazir! I would defenietely do something to make for this lost; sbb this RM 3200 could have been helping us to pay the deposit for our first house. Kn? =(
Sekian, terima kasih
p/s- To other b2b, tlgla properly plan yr big day because what's important is not how grand your wedding day is, but how much of money that you have to start your life later after the `Raja Sehari' day
