Engagement : the dais.

Been thinking of blogging about the engagement, but I just didn't know where to start.

One thing you must know about me is that I'm a perfectionist. Like, an annoying one. During the days prior to the event, I was calling my Mum to ensure everything's okay and the one thing I'm fussy about the event was the dais.

Looking for an event organizer who can produce the kind of dais I wanted was a difficult task. I've done a bit of research, and the nice designs in KL are just impossible to find in Penang! Me and Mum had to scour through Penang to look for one that is affordable and simple - all the while, maintaining the dream dais in my mind. When we found one that suits our budget, I told him the specific details of how I wanted the dais to be.

I told him I wanted all white, simple but with a lot of vases of flowers with a good lighting. The one thing I wanted is for the engagement to not seem like a huge deal. He took my ideas and changed a bit (I wanted a different chair) but when they finished setting up the whole thing, I fell in love.

It turned out to be even bigger than I imagined; which means more space for the white backdrop. I wasn't home when the event organizer team finished setting it up because I had to rush to the store to get some flowers for hantaran (heart attack number 1 : my hantaran deco was done a day before the event) and when I got home, my jaws dropped.

It was so beautiful but so MUCH bigger than I imagined. Freaked out at first, because I really didn't want a vast dais but Mum assured me that it still looks simple because of the bigger space for the white backdrop. Trust your Mum to say anything to make you happy haha.

Even the niece liked it so much she refused to sit anywhere else 

But still, Alhamdulillah it was everything I wanted. If you're in Penang (Seberang Perai) area and you're looking for a nice dais, let me know!
