The Wedding Brocade Lah Sey!

Recently, I attended a cousin’s wedding (not Hafiz, but his brother Faiz. They both had their sanding on the same day huhu. Macam best je) and met his bride for the first time during their nikah ceremony. And I actually gasped at how pretty she was! Her makeup was flawless and I loved her eyebrows!! I have this thing with eyebrows, for me if the MUA can shade them in really well it means her skills are top notch. My view lah okayyy. Yeah, so this Zakiah also had this hijab style on that was still quite uncommon in the nikah scene, because usually the hijab styles would involve just a sarung kepala thing that wraps so tightly around the face, making the face look super tembam and “out there”, then with a veil over the head ( i shall not post any pictures but you get what i mean). Hers was modern and up-to-date, what I would call “the messy hijab” style. If you’ve read my blog post here, then you’d know how particular I am about hijab styling.

So bila I balik, I buat research lah sikit (padahal boleh tanya Zakiah eh, tapi malu), and low and behold, found out that it was the work of The Wedding Brocade lah sey! Patutlah chaaaantik bangat!

I love how the inner shawl flows around her face, very graceful and slimming! At first, I didn’t care too much about this vendor, because I saw that all of their customers fit the profile of being “kurus and tak pakai tudung” so their hijab collection might not be wide enough. And I know of a BTB who has enquired with them before and found out that their outfits range up to UK 12 only. So I tak favourite sekali companies who don’t really care for the big, bold and beautiful ladies. But when I saw Zakiah in her nikah outfit, my faith in them went pretty high ok!!  I’m so gonna tell Kak Nur from Weddingku to fix my hijab like this because I love it THAT MUCH.

So when I went for Faiz and Zakiah’s reception that weekend, apa lagi their sanding outfits were also super nice lah!

I have to admit that The Wedding Brocade’s strongest point is their collections. Their outfits are unique and bold. Very flattering, especially on the tall and slim girls like Zakiah. More of her outfits below:

Orang buat train kat belakang, diorang punya train kat tepi shoulder. UNIQUE OR WHAT. This seems to be their niche design, since I’ve seen them in a few colours yang sungguh menawan. MOAR DESIGNNNSSS BELOW:

I swear, seeing all these pictures sungguh mencabar my iman to (be crazy like Farhana) and switch my bridal vendor, joining past Hipster Bride and future BTB Love In November in the #teamweddingbrocade. But even if H and my mom doesn’t kill me first, nak tukar pun dah tak boleh because word came out that they are FULLY BOOKED for 2014. I take this as a sign k that I have to be syukur with what I have. Also, at the back of my mind, I see Kak Nur’s disappointed face and H looking disapprovingly at me so takpa lah ehhh.
