Getting Married Journal #1 October, 31 2010

*Warning: this journal was written in the past before it is being published here.

We spent about two hours this time choosing a perfect textile for our solemnisation ceremony. It was too perfect that it cost more than what we had imagined! (forgot if we had actually put any budget for my dress, but yeah it should be lesser than the engagement dress as we had decided not to focus too much on the dress, but the day itself).

I was stunned looking at the price tag of the chosen french lace (the salespersons there have already known us since we are their regular customer. So we just need to mention the colour and they'll do the rest). They cost as little as six hundred ringgit per metre. Of course they are original as we don't actually look at those 'un-solisitis' or imitation. And this time we chose beaded lace to match the satin silk and chiffon of a darker shade.

We managed to learn things about textile there. And I guessed Kak Shanaz was right about buying a good quality thing here is incomparable to Jakarta or Bandung. I mean, buying here can be cheaper as long as they (the bosses) are there to give us discounts! Of course this time buying had cost us, again, two thousand over. That was after discount, as the French lace cost us RM580 per metre, much lower than its original price which was RM950 per metre. Isn't that almost 50 percent discount?  

This I think is our first step in getting 'into' the marriage aura. I was delighted to see Luv started to think about some of the thing, however he can sometimes be a bit too much especially in terms of buying the best of everything.

P.s. Looking forward for the upcoming Vday.
