Bridesmaids, Flower Girls+ A Flower Boy.

Last Saturday, we headed off to Ipoh to attend and helping out my hubby's cousin who was getting married. We missed the solemnization event because it was done on Friday - the day before. We only managed to attend the reception in the Community Hall in Meru, Ipoh.

We took off at 8 a.m. and arrived by 10.30 a.m. The journey was smooth and we didn't stop at all throughout the journey. My MIL wanted to arrive there early to avoid any traffic jam and to help her sister (the mother of the bride) with the last minute preparation of the reception. By the time we arrived at their house, they have done packed most of the guests' gifts. So, we basically just sit back and relaxed before getting ready.

All of us have our 'uniform' given by the bride. We had to sent to a tailor to make them.To be frank, I'm not a fan of the colour and the fabrics chosen but we didn't have other choices. I felt that mine was the worst since the colour resembled nurses uniform or factory workers uniform. For our kids, they had to wear white dresses with a blue ribbon on the waist. The fabric looked like curtain fabric (it's a see-through fabric too) and I do hate white dress for kids. Okay I better stop here about my disappointment on a small issue.

At 12 p.m. , most of us got ready to go to the hall except for the bride. 3 make-up artists were busy preparing her to look gorgeous on her big day. Thus, they had to take about 3 hours before they sent her to the hall.

The flower girls + a flower boy were ready 

At the hall, we were told to have our lunch first with the other guests who arrived early. We helped ourselves with the delicious food. Alhamdulillah the food was good and there were a variety of drinks too. As I've predicted, Husna stained her white dress while we were having lunch because she used both hands to eat on her own then smeared everything on the lap. Hafizah and Fathini did smeared their dresses a bit too. Luckily it was not so obvious.

The bride & groom with the groom's family members only arrived by 2.30 p.m. at the hall. By that time, Husna was already in the dreamland and our kids were also tired of waiting for so long. However, they were didn't make any face or complain (not like me eh... ). They performed their duty as being told by the eldest sister of the bride. The family members of the groom praised them and many took a lot photos with them. They even sprinkled more flowers after the bride and groom were already seated on the dais! Actually it was their first experience and they were so excited about it.

While the bride & groom were seating and posing on the dais, our job was to greet the guests who arrived. After greeting, we also handed over the gifts for the guests and asked them to go inside the hall. I only helped when I could leave Husna with someone else as she was taking her nap for almost the whole afternoon there. Oh...I forgot to mention that the rain showered down the whole afternoon. So, it was quite damp and wet outside of the hall. Thank god they put on 2 extra canopies where we could rest while waiting for the guests. 

The reception went on until 4.00 p.m. when most of the guests have gone and no more new guests arrived. We only managed to take the family photo with the bride & groom after that. Husna woke up just before we took the family photos. She could happily run around the hall with her siblings,cousins and other relatives while the catering workers busy packing up.

hihi mmg scrolling nk tgk betul2 baju mcm nurse tu hihi....bcoz of the color n material ya? kak, believe me i've seen worse baju utk kenduri kawen yg ikut konsep mcm ni (pengantin kasi kain suruh tempah sendiri). agree, the best is to bagi sedara mara few color tone, n let them get their own baju. lagi meriah mcm2 shades & pesen!
