Preggy Me & Weddings

I don't know why, but it seems like every time I got pregnant and at my last trimester, I always been invited to important weddings..uh...pardon me, important, GRAND wedding reception...at such a short notice...

Don't get me wrong, I love weddings! It's just that every time I will faced the same situation:

....I don't have anything to wear according to the theme of the wedding
....I will feel as if I am the fattest, widest, and ugliest person around (talking about low self esteem :P)

(Jealous ok tengok orang lan bersiap bagai, bergaya je pegi wedding whereas me??? *sigh*)


I still remember in late November 2008, I had to accompany Fadzil to attend his bestfriend's wedding at Crown Princess Hotel. I was at my 35 weeks pregnant of Faaz, and I was so chubby and fat. I had nothing to wear :(


Since Doyok came from a royalty background, I already anticipated how grand and exclusive the wedding was. True enough, it was a beautiful, posh wedding and everyone look stunning in their outfit, except me. I was the most simplest person in that hall, wearing a chiffon pleated blouse with a pair of long soft maternity pants. That's all I can come with, wanted a chiffon dress but it was too late to pay a visit to my tailor. Biasalah, time cuti skolah banyak tempahan...last minute request of course tidak dilayan. Huhu...

simple me, otw to the wedding...


And this time, we've been invited to attend Fadzil's cousin's wedding, when I am at 32 weeks of pregnancy. Cousin Wahab, the bridegroom-to-be came to our house 2 weeks before the big day and handed us the card. There were 3 receptions all together; The Henna Night, The Solemnization and the Reception.


Oh my! I said in my heart, this time it's worst. I am bloated with two babies and I had to find three different outfit to wear??? Yeah, I have to crack my head again and think, think, think...


While I was browsing and looking inside my not-so-big wardrobe, I finally find a Riau Kurung that was made for Raya when I was at 26 weeks preggy. Thanks to the adjustable waist of the skirt, I can still fit in the kurung...*phew*. "Relieved! Will wear this for the Solemnization day", I told myself.


Next thing and a bit tricky part was to find an outfit for the reception; the theme was "English & Traditional Bollywood". After series of thinking and browsing the net, I decided to wear a Caftan Dress since it is so popular nowadays. Not really match the theme but at least, a dress is considered as English theme, yes? no?.. :P


Was looking for an empire cutting caftan but couldn't find it. Don't want to take a risk buying online, worrying that it won't fit my tummy at the end or it's too long for my petite height, I went to Shah Alam to find one. Alhamdulillah, with God's help I managed to find a simple Caftan Dress that fits me in such a short time (maklumla, mak buyung ni skang sudah tiada stamina utk jalan/berdiri lama2). I go for olive color, something really new to me (since I am not a fan of green). Wanted to shop for a matching scarf but was too tired to do so. Ended up I just wore a plain 2-tone color old scarf. Thinking it was too plain, I bought a not too heavy sequin hairband and wore it on top of my scarfs.

Fadzil think it was cute! Hihi :)


and the end result was...

My SIL and me

Again, I was the simplest person that night, but I don't feel left out like the previous wedding. Although 60% of the guest that night wore Traditional Bollywood outfit (including the bridegroom family), there were few other guests that wore the kaftan dress as well (of course theirs were much more glamorous than me). So I ade geng! Hihi...


The best thing that night, the hero of "Trilogi Cinta" (a popular Malay drama adapted from a novel) complimented me and said that I am one cute preggy mommy. Awwwh, so sweet of him :) Btw, managed to chat with his wife, she was so sweet and lovely! :)


Wonder how he was present at the wedding? Well, actually the heroin of the drama is Fadzil's cousin, a.k.a the youngest sister of the bridegroom :) Besides Rosyam, few other celebrities were presence as well including Afif (AF9) and Iqram Dinzly.


The funny thing that night, hubby was a bit uncomfy when I took photo with Iqram. He said, "Dah ambil gambar dgn hero tua, dgn hero muda tak payahlaa..". Haha, u're so cute lah sayang when u're jealous! :D Aren't you forget that your wifey is bloody BLOATED at the moment?? Mana ade saham maaaa...


Tengok I, cool je, tak jealous pun you duk sebelah your beautiful cousin for the family photo... hihi :)


Anyway, more photos will be uploaded in my FB soon. Hope this will be the last wedding for me to attend before the twins are born. Serius dah tak larat although actually nak sangat pegi tengok adikku Didie naik pelamin :)


xoxo,

Nadine said...

Zahirah,

Haha..akak snap photo ngan Rosyam awal2 lagi (middle of reception). Masa tu org lain mcm takut2 nak approach dia. So takyahla akak "queue". Tu yg sempat gak chit chat dgn wife dia :)

Awwww, thanks. Awak tu ape kurangnya. So glamorous in that pink modern kurung ;)

Nadine said...

Irra,

Thanks *blush* :) Saje cuba2 Irra. Nk jadi gorgeous sah sah tak dpt dgn perut yg membulat tu, so try jadi cute plak la..hahaha, perasan je kan :P

Oh yes dear, dari sekolah lagi I mmg suka accessories. Tp sejak bertudung n dh kawin ni slow down sket. My collections yg berlambak tu pun bnyk dh pass down to my sister and cousins :) Try la Irra one day, try with a simple one. Sure lepas tu melekatlah! Hihi..

Hahaha, comel je kan bila diaorg jeles. Sbb kadang2 benda yg dijeleskan tu tak make sense pun. Rasa best pun ye jugak. Heeee..

ps: ok, insyaAllah dear. rambut dia cantik kan, hitam lebat!

Nadine said...

Aleyn,

Nadine said...
