I made this dress last year and the wedding actually took place February this year. Gila lambat eh I tulis entry about the dress. Panjang ceritanya. Mula2 because pengantin minta upload gambar after the wedding, so I waited till February. Then, my laptop pula masuk workshop terpaksa tunggu lagi. Then pung pang pung pang busy sana sini, last-last baru ni berkesempatan nk update. But I’ve already put up some photos of the bride and groom wearing my creation on their wedding day, the photos were taken by wedding photographer and I’m still waiting for more beautiful pictures from them sebenarnya.
Nik was being introduced to me by my friend Isma. They used to work in the same office. So the bride Nik contacted me and we discussed details about pricing, budget, design, material, colours and etc through email. When everything seemed ok with the budget and all only then we decided to meet up. Yup, normally my style memang macam tu. I prefer to discuss all the important part dulu especially budget, design and material through email because we can just straight discuss about it without wasting time. Bila semua ok baru jumpa, jadinya sessi bertemu tu dah simple dan mudah sbb kesemua benda2 yg penting sudah discuss terlebih dahulu. I have to do like this due to time constraint. Lagipon it way much better kan? as we don’t waste anyone’s time kan? Customer tk waste my time dengan berjumpa dan tk pasti nk tempah ker tak dan I pon tk waste customer’s time. Kita bincang, setuju baru jumpa for measuring and so on.
Dan juga customer pon rasa selesa dan tak ada rasa serba salah ke apa, sbb kadang-kadang bila dah jumpa and discuss lama2 sekali budget tk boleh nk meet pula. Dahhhh tk jadi tempah, dahhh rasa segan bagai. So to avoid all these to happen, easier to discuss through email and meet me once you are agree with my price and suggestion.
So back to this beautiful lilac chiffon dress, it’s indeed a simple and sweet dress. Nik prefers the dress to be simple as she planned to wear it not only for the wedding. It’s not difficult at all to work with Nik, as she’s very cooperative and not fussy. When I suggested to her to do crochet crown & crochet shoulder wrap instead of lace , she has no objection to it and I was so happy since she’s open to new thing. I plak mmg dah aim nk design dress with crochet sbb kinda bored with lace already and I believe if pergi wedding, banyak tetamu pon guna lace kan?
A bit about the lilac chiffon dress, the shawl/veil is pre-attached to the dress, senang sket tk perlu nk cari tudung dah. Just wear a nice scarf inner. Then for the sleeve , it’s a normal sleeve with 2 layer ruffles and I suggested to Nik to add some decent beading. Sbb mula-mula tk ada beads, but I think bila lagi nk melaram with beading bagai if not wedding , ye tak? And beading ni can always unpick if you don’t want it anymore. There’s also lots of beading at the bottom of the dress. Scattered beads. Then for the crown part on the veil, instead of lace patch, I chose crochet lace patch. It is more unique, pretty and exclusive too. Other than that, I’ve also provided crochet lace wrap, to be wrapped around the chest and arm, to give some vintage look but sweet. The dress also comes with a stand alone belt that can be removed.
Other than that, Nik also ordered a pair of custom made shoes to be worn with her lilac dress and groom suit that match her dress colour too. I’ve provided everything including the material. In sha Allah once I get more of their pictures will put it up here.

Usually I don’t take many custom orders at one time to ensure quality of my products are top notch. So, tak perlu risau kalau kot-kot designer or tailor confuse ker sbb banyak orders, sbb if dengan I, normally mmg I focus buat only 1 baju pengantin at one time and will only open another slot of wedding orders after the first one has finished. First class service ok Marilah mari tempah baju pengantin dgn I ya!
p/s: I don’t have a clear picture of the groom wearing his suit. will ask from the pengantin later
