My wedding reception is one of the best moments in my life. I wish I could rewind the moment over and over again. I wanna be a bride again, boleh? A bride to the same husband :)

Getting ready

As you all know, I wore a gown with a looooong train on my wedding day with matching 5-inch platform heels, designed by Rizman Ruzaini. The wedding gown was actually Rizman's idea and it was at the very last minute - if I'm not mistaken, it was a month before the Wedding Reception! I only managed to see and try it on exactly one week before the reception, and as I landed my eyes on the gown, I was awe-struck. It's made of pink Duchess satin with white pleated hem and lace-appliqu├ęd drop-waist bodice scattered with Swarovski crystals. Rizman did mention that he'll make a train for the gown, but I didn't expect it to be that long - or shall I say, big! I feel like a Cinderella!

I was excited, but at the same time I was unsure of the whole wedding gown idea. I mean, I wear tudung anddd, have you seen any tudung-wearing brides in wedding gowns before? Exactly. Never. Or at least, I haven't seen one. That's why I was unsure. Fyi, I'm not the type of person yg berani trying something new. That's my little sister. Not me. My mom even suggested I make a new baju but luckily Rizman ckp tak sempat dah bcoz there's only 3 days left before the wedding day. Huhu. But after being convinced by Rizman, Ruzaini, my husband and both my sisters, I finally agreed. After all, it is a once-in-a-lifetime moment so it has to be extra special! The only thing I didn't agree with was the tudung part. I was supposed to wear a serkup-like tudung, like what my Maid of Honor and flower girls wore, except mine has lace and real flowers. One, bcoz I think I look ugly and funny wearing only serkup and two, bcoz my husband tak bagi. So that's why I wore back my Nikah tudung.

But I'm glad I wore the gown! I've always dream of wearing a ball gown on my wedding day like one of those Disney Princesses when I was a kid, but I have never ever ever thought of really wearing it on my actual wedding day. Somehow, Rizman Ruzaini made my childhood dream come true!
