PAZZION Fabulously You

Salam guys.
The title says it all!!! Yes, it's on shoes!!! I already found the "platform" shoes for my sanding. Yay! And it's peep toe. Ofcourse, it's bling bling (I just can't stay away from bling bling shoes).  Most important, it's comfy for hall reception (will be having no problem standing for longer periods of time in the shoes). I had to buy it last night since it's the last pair for my size! Huhu. I didn't want to take the risk to find another one if I didn't buy it. It's the one and only platform bling bling shoes I could ever find in Brunei. The price is also reasonable. =D

Just a short post.

Till then.

Our BWS's Three Days Experience

Salam peeps!!!

How's your weekend? Did you guys go to the Bliss Wedding Showcase that's held at the Empire Hotel? We did. We went to the BWS for three consecutive days!!!! Surprised much? Haha, I know. Till someone from one of the vendors said, "Kamu lagi? Rajin ni datang tiga hari ani" =P

In the last post, I mentioned that me and my fiance registered for a special invitation and joined the lucky draw for the B2Bs and G2Bs  On the first day, we were invited by Songket Wedding to attend the "Wedding Planning Seminar" featuring panel of guests, Zery Zamry (Malaysia Celebrity Fashion Designer), Ahim Rani (Candidsyndrome) and Farida (Certified Cake Decorator). This was held in the afternoon after Jumaat prayer. After attending the seminar, we went to see and survey what the available vendors were offering.

We came again the following night to attend for the "Lucky Draw Announcement". We're just one step closer to getting the 1OK Wedding Package Grand Price. Huhu, it's not our rezeki for that night. But guess what?? Among 15 couples, we won one out of the 4 lucky draw prizes for the B2Bs and G2Bs ie. a ticket to attend the BWS Closing Ceremony and having dinner with Aaron Aziz and his wife, Diyana Halik!!!

The Ticket

Then after the announcement we went to deposit for our pelamins. Our hall pelamin from RN Wedding and my house pelamin from Maszalina Butik.

On the last day, we came again in the late afternoon to meet with the Malaysian designer, Zery Zamry. We decided to custom made our Majlis Ambil-Ambilan's attire and my nikah dress but rent it under RN Wedding as 'baju baru'. This means we'll be the first one to wear. So excited!!! Just hope it will turn out well. For the nikah dress, initially I wanted to buy own materials and custom made but not rent. But on second thought, for that promotion  price and the design, it's worth to rent ZZ's (would love to buy but it's a bit pricey that I can't think of an event that I would wear it again. So I think it's better to rent instead). On the plus side, the package also includes veil, tudung, shoes and accessories. As for the Majlis Ambil-Ambilan's attire, we just wanted something different for this event.

Night time, we went to the BWS Closing Ceremony and had dinner with Aaron Aziz and wife. This was held at the Indera Samudera Grand Hall, the Empire Hotel. We got to see them for FREE!!! We had so much fun. It was a night to remember. We got to take pictures with them and had their autographs signed on the ticket. Oh, I also had autograph from Zery Zamry. =D

Happy Birthday Diyana Halik!

Their autographs

Such a sweet couple!!!
Overall, it was such a great experience for my fiance and I. Thankyou so much El Ricco and Songket Wedding for organising this Bliss Wedding Showcase. You guys did a great job. Well done!!!

Btw, I've updated my wedding checklist. Check it out!

Toodles ~ =))

Top Bridal Shoe Trends for 2012

Salam you alls.

It's been a week I didn't post anything on my blog.  Today I would like to share an article I came across. It's about "WEDDING SHOES" for 2012 B2Bs!

A wonderful wedding dress put on using a great pair of shoes. Agree? =)

Here's the article which I thought it's true.

2012 brides are chic, practical and budget-conscious. And when it comes to their wedding shoes they want an array of colors, styles and heel heights to choose from.  Women's Wear Daily interviewed folks from some of the top bridal accessories boutiques to find out what brides really want in their wedding day kicks. So these are their answers:

Versatility—2012 brides want to walk down the aisle in a pair of shoes they can wear again! Makes sense, doesn't it?! This practical desire is driving the colored shoe trend, and means more brides are searching for unique, non-traditional wedding shoe styles.

Jeweled Brooch Accents—Just check out our wedding shoe gallery to see this trend in action! Designers like Badgley Mischka offer swoon-worthy wedding shoes with dazzling brooch adornments on everything from peep-toe d'orsay pumps to kitten heeled slip ons. For brides seeking a more custom feel, bring an antique heirloom brooch into a reputable bridal boutique, and ask them to apply it to a simple pair of heels. If you buy the unadorned shoes from that boutique, they should do the brooch applique on the house.

Platforms—Brides tying the knot in 2012 are not afraid of sky high heels! Platform wedding shoes are more popular than ever, featuring gorgeous details like Swarovski crystals, textured rosettes and sheer, illusion fabric.

Bling, Bling—Crystals, rhinestones and sparkle, oh my! According to Kim Hall at Chicago's Left Bank, "Brides are gravitating toward crystal-embellished shoes and putting their own personal style on simpler designs." Shimmery metallics are still on-trend, with gilded golds, and dazzling silvers & pewters, dominating.

A Bold Touch—2012 brides are thinking beyond the white wedding shoe.  They're looking for styles that are semi-traditional, but with a funky, edgy pop.  Animal prints, jewel tones and avant-garde details are on-deck for 2012!

I'm so in love with this shoes!!! It has mostly the properties above. Versatile? Yes. Jeweled Brooch Accents? Yes. Bold Touch? Yes. Platform? Yes. The most important thing, it's SEXY!!! *drools*

Wedding Shoes by Aruna Seth

This costs 595 UK pounds. Approximately 1.2K Brunei dollars. *gulp* Wow!!! Where can i find this kind of shoes in Brunei with a reasonable price? Suggestions?

I already have shoes for most of my events. Lucky I bought them while I was in UK. I just need one more for my reception.

It's hard to find wedding shoes in Brunei. I might try to have a look on the platform shoes first. Wish me luck! I would love to try one. I prefer peep-toe, it's in trend right now. Final resort will be Shoe Lovers or Cest Moi. They don't have these platform shoes i think but they do have lots of blingy shoes. It's pretty and colourful. Price range? Not bad compared to 1.2K. Hehe. Best time to buy is during sale time. =)

Why choose "PLATFORM" wedding shoes?
The point of bridal platform shoes is to make your feet more comfortable since they won’t have to arch that high. Your feet won't hurts. Besides, it'll make you even taller.

Want something unique yet elegant? It's the stunning bridal wedge!!!

Something modern?

Which 2012 shoe trend is right up your alley?  What style of wedding shoes will you walk down the aisle in?

More on shoes next time, on the fabric perhaps? Bye.
