Biyan Bride!

I went to Jakarta last Monday with my fiance to do the fitting for one of our baju for the wedding. During our short trip, we managed to do a couple of things..and went to a few places. So one of the things that I love the most from our trip was visiting the Biyan Bride boutique! Yes, the international brand! - Oh..so many beautiful pieces to see and to hold! There's always something magical about being in a bridal boutique, don't you think? I could spend hours in there! hehe ^__^









This is pretty!!


Ooh la laaa...




Biyan always has such intricate designs and beautiful beading works! I loveee!









I love how elegant and exclusive their designs are! Everything is hand made and has very intricate design! I personally love the one on the left! So elegant! Too bad it's see-through! So a hijaber like me can't wear it!


All of the baju here are soooo heavy!


Pretty packaging, no?
^__^


Anyways..I made a kebaya for my first and third reception dress from a designer in Indonesia. And will be wearing a modern dress on my second reception from a designer that is half Malaysian, half Indonesian - Can you guess who? hehe. And for my akad nikah, I would be wearing a reaaaaaallly simple baju kurung from one of our awesome local designer. Oh, I'm so excited to see all of the dresses when they're ready!

According to the Indonesian designer, my kebaya would be covered with lotsa bead works! Goshh...it must be heavy, I can't imagine when he showed me the parts that would be covered with bead works!!! The designer made my dress from scratch with no beadings at all...and now, the lace will all be covered with beads, beads, and beads! Seriously I can't imagine.... O__o

I just hope I don't blink so much like a Christmas tree that day! haha. I love simple design, if you don't know it already... So the kebayas really made me feel a little worried if it turns out to be soooooo heavy! =/


P/s: Some of the pics are from google



XOXO,
Shazzy.

  4. Dear dont waste your money (although I know you have heaps). Simply because you dont have the body and looks for these designers dresses.You akan tenggelam dalam the beads and everything. I would suggest you wear something simple but classy to accentuate your sweet looks.

  6. i so agree with what anonymous said on 8/11/2013 at 3.21pm above. just don't make the same mistake as how u did your engagement dress. sorry but i believe as public and as your reader, we want you to look lovely. at least from outer point of view. asking your good friends won't help since they'll say it's lovely all the way.

  7. Agreed with anon above.. We all know you have the money and all but too bad not for the look and body figure. Dont you think it'll just be a waste to spend so much on something you cant even pull it right?

  12. dress engagement tak lawa...your best friends memang akan semua ckp lawa, gorgeous...tudung plak terbelit tercekik pastu kt sanggul nya pelik...harap2 baju kawen elok la sikit, dh perabis duit kan..simple sudeh...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Ok. Tak faham kenapa ada some annoyingly negative comment seperti tudung tercekik etc. Listen, whoever you are, you're just being mean. If you don't like this blog of her wonderful stories, then shoo. If you don't like her dressings, that's up to her. we give her comments to help her, not insult her and kutuk dia. U must be one of those sad people kan. Anony, maybe you muka tembok pecah. sebab tu mengutuk dia habisan, and tak berani letak muka mahupun nama. Hmm.

  14. Baju bertunang tu lawa, i mean warna dia. Tapi cape dan cara belit shawl tu macam pelik la. Saya rasa kalau pakai tudung awning masuk dalam baju dan tak payah letak cape is even BETTER! Something simple je.

    Body wise: saya pun badan gempal-gempal juga. Tapi berangan nak pakai baju modern body shape bagai ni, lepas dah buat, menyesal tak sudah bila tengok gambar. Sebab body shape sy totally out! Plus terlalu show off body figure sampai saya naik malu. Hingga ke hari ni sy tak pakai dah baju tu. Syg je tempah mahal2. Lepas dari tu, saya tak pernah tempah baju ikot shape bdn terlampau.

    Wani memang berduit. Tapi kesederhanaan always win! Hope your wedding dress design lebih lawa dari bertunang tu.

    Apa2 pun, all the best!!

  18. At least aku tak busuk hati nak mengutuk dia. Although as anonymous. i even complimented her in my previous post. Faham? Okk now I put my name. Lets see if kau mampu tak to identify yourself sebab hanya mampu kutuk as anonymous. BOO-HOO!!

    Wani just continue doing your thing kay. This particular anony has got some serious issues.

  19. This reminds me of Vivy from proudduck.com she got hers from Biyan too. Copycat eh hihihihihi... All the best! You'll be a beautiful bride.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Firstly, please get your facts right before commenting and accusing me for copying Vivy. Her beautiful dress that she wore on her wedding day last year, was made by Anne Avantie. I was at her wedding, so I know. By just looking at the designs, we all know it's from Anne?? If you know what you're talking about, you'll know the difference between Biyan's design and Anne Avantie's -___-

      Secondly, I never say I made my dress with Biyan. I said I visited the shop to see what they have in store since we're already in Jakarta, so I thought I'd give a visit to one of the famous and awesome designer there. So please read carefully. -__-

      And thirdly, even IF I wear the same designer as anyone else's...why bother? The designers are meant to sell their outfits to the public. They're not there to serve only one person. So you buy Zara top...I can't buy the same one because I like it, is it? Wow. Bersihnya hati awak. :)

      Fourthly, I am not the one who reaallllyyyyy wanted to go Jakarta and made a dress there. It never really occurred to my mind until my mom's friend got married in September, and she wore a kebaya from this one designer from Indonesia, and we both fell in love with her dress when we saw it. So that's where the idea of going there popped, and we asked where she did her dress at, and who's the designer. I guess she's not like you, so she helped us with it..and tell everything we need to know about the designer.
      Well...I know a lot of people who go to Indonesia to make a dress there. So there's no copycat or anything here. Even my sister made a dress there too. So it's not a big deal. It's not like we're going to New York or Paris to buy some crazy topnotch designers or anything here, ok? So can't you just chill? -__-


      And lastly, I think you and all the anonymous here who think they know better, should stop being so negative, and fill your lives with some better things to do. Seriously, you guys really made me worried about you.
      Why so bitter? O__o
      Take a chill pill, and go explore the world. If you can't do that. Well, just don't read my blog. It's as simple as that. Trust me, you'll be much happier and content :)

      Okay that's all I have to say to everyone here... Have a great life you guys! ^__^

  21. Babe you should learn to dress your age. You always dress like an older women..you know like women in their 40s (ala macam successful career women in their 40s. Lighten up a bit and enjoy your youthfulness while you are in your 20s. fashion tips: branded handbags and dresses wont turn you into a fashionista but knowledge in fashion is.

  22. Seriously..what's wrong with u anons.. don't u learn how to respect others feeling and personal taste? Tudung awning msk dlm baju is a fashion to u, but NOT for someone else, including me.. but then, it's ur choice n taste rightttt.. so insult or pointed someone's flaw won't make u any better.. org komen tu body mantap mcm erra ke, rozita che wan ke? pffttt..i don't think so..

    Wani.. hang in there.. U absolutely gorgeous in your own way..everybody does.. just stick and continue as u are.. let them haters, hate.. u surely gonna live a happy life, and blessed.

    p/s : x sabar nak tggu wedding you..

    XoXo

  23. wani my humble opinion everything u ware very nice.. but just change the way u posture urself while in front of camera. just relax and dont streach ur self sampai nmpk boobs kedepan sgt.. just rilex and stand straight. or u pakai corsep yg nmpk body u mcm kene karen everytime posing.. hihi

  24. Reading Wani's self defense, I think, she is the one who need to take the chill pill.

  25. Cakap pasal women in their 40s dan juga corset, I teringat post you yang pakai corset tu. Lebih kurang macam artis 80an Raja Ema yang buat comeback. Pakai corset bagai he he so out of this world. Macam manalah you boleh terfikir pakai tudug dan pakai corset kat luar macam tu. Nevertheless, I like your mum. She looks humble and lovely.

  26. Hey...nakal you all ni semua. Tak baik tau. Kesian budak Wani ni. Actually I like your engagement dress. Simple and sweet. Except for the cape of course which I think is so unnecessary for an engagement ceremony. Even kalau venue kat Carcosa pun still tak sesuai okay. Sorry again...bab your tudung tu mmg I setuju. Indeed that was the biggest flawlah sbb your dress dah simple and gorgeous tapi mmg nampak mcm tak siap bila pakai tudung mcm tu. Cuba bayangkan you pakai tudung yang ada lace and beadings sikit and berjuntaian kain tudungnya instead of the cape...mmg sangat cantik mcm goddess, would have been a perfect ensemble. Takpelah Wani...kita semua belajar from each other okay. Cant want to see your wedding dress. Cheers :)

  27. setuju sgt dengan Hannah, anon dan Ein..well, kebenaran memang hard to be accepted.the way we dressed not beautiful by looking at mirror and fake praise by friends, but should be by learning to other opinion tu. simple is always nice and sweet. in term of dress and how u pose in front of camera

    Shazwani,
    If you can't stand the heat, stop sharing your life with the whole world. Occasionally you have to take negative feedbacks with a pinch of salt. No pride is loss if you had kept your cool in the face of harsh criticism. In fact you could have earned respect of many readers had you admitted your own shortcomings & learn from this experience.. If only..

  30. I gotta agree with anon above.. For the record, I've never comment in your blog. Tapi kali ini rase terpanggil untuk memberikan sedikit pendapat.

    1. Designers brand exactly wont turn you into fashionista. As for example, your handbags collection is truly something that my 56 years old mother would carry anywhere. Youve got really bad eyes for handbags dear.
    2. Untuk baju pulak can you please pilih yang suitable for your age. Baju you semua nampak tua dear.. I rase you ptt learn from your sister izza.
    3. For possing i mmng agree dgn anon. Chill wani, chill.. You memang cantik as you are. Tak perlu nak mendada or menonggek keterlaluan sangat mcmtu nak tunjuk body.

    Ok :)

  31. I am in my 30s and I am a professional and yet I don't wear designer bags like you. I don't even own designer bags. Heck, my 60yo mum pun takde sebanyak tu designer bags nya. Nasib baik u jumpa hazim and dia suka/cinta u. Kalau tak, i rasa mana2 lelaki around your age pun akan intimidated nak berkenalan dengan u sebab tengok u suka melaram dengan designer bags.
    btw are you working? what do u work as because u seem so free to go everywhere, attend events and whatnot. and yet u can afford all those designer bags.
    oh lupa, mak pak orang kaya.
    hazim kerja apa btw?

  32. hi wani,

    Jgn kecil hati dgn apa yg I nak comment ye. U dah mmng cantik, just u need to consider others' opinion. I setuju dgn anon2 kat atas ni, not everyone has a body that can carry designer dress. Mungkin u boleh buat baju yg x ketat sgt..hu2. Bila pakai baju ketat x manis dipandang kat certain parts. (I think u know what I meant). Nanti bila u dah kahwin u boleh la nak pakai ketat macam mana pun depan your husband only..he2. Just chill wani, you are pretty woman.

  38. I don't get ppl that go to ppl's blog n to post nasty comments on other ppl! Bitter or jealous much! Secure happy ppl usually dont and wont slate other ppl let alone ppl they don't know, let alone publicly after searching for them! Quite sad really!

    To shazwani, just be cool as you are yeah. they're just have an unhappy life, thus decided to make your life "sounds" miserable with their words, as if it will work. So pathetic.

  39. Dear wani,
    Seriously i love you for you. I dont know u personally but reading your post previously i think that u're a nice person and humble. Im happily married, for almost 3 years already alhamdulillah. Majlis kahwin i sederhana, sangat sederhana. I pakai baju kurung yang ada beads sikit, tudung just pakai tudung bawal yang i selalu pakai pergi kelas/kerja. Majlis nikah dan resepsi dekat dewan orang ramai. Sangat bersyukur majlis berjalan lancar. Pada i, baju, hantaran, makanan, tempat majlis, semua tu tak sepenting niat i untuk menghalalkan hubungan dengan suami i. Jadi nasihat i, janganlah u risau/stress sangat pasal kahwin ni k. Yang penting, buat yang wajib, supaya dapat berkat Tuhan :)
