The Royal Wedding: Prince William & Kate, Our Inspiration^^

Many people are saying that the theme of The Royal Wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton which held on 29th April 2011 was “Simple and Elegant”. It can be seems from the wedding gown of Kate Middleton was custom by Sarah Burton for Alexander McQuee, it looks pretty and simply elegant. Some experts also give opinion that the wedding gown of Kate Middleton was successfully representing Kate’s personality: plain, tough, pretty and she knows exactly what she wants. Kate Middleton looks very stunning, so gorgeous and so lovely wore the wedding gown, I love it.

In my opinion, I give her 10/10 for the wedding gown because the important things to wear a wedding gown is reflecting personality. Your wedding gown shows your character. However, her hair looked too simple and I prefer to have the hair tied up to down because I think she would be much prettier. But, overall I love the dress and the simply bucket, a shield-shaped blend of myrtle (the emblem of marriage symbolising the innocence of a bride), lily-of-the-valley (symbolising the return of happiness), sweet William (how apposite, but it also symbolises gallantry) and hyacinth (symbolising the constancy of love). It was designed by Shane Connolly.

The Wedding Preparation (#Part2): Lamaran

Our Relationship has been long through for about 5 years since May 2006. Now is 2011, I feel that it’s the right time for getting more seriously to walk on together for all that we have been through. But, at the beginning of the year, I was suddenly getting confused because one of the parts of my past suddenly came again into my life. Everyday I pray to God and do “Salat Istikharah” because I don’t want to decide something that I don’t even feel sure about it. When I tried to share with some of my friends, they said that before we getting married, there will always be some disturbance things come out to shake all the things on my mind. They asked me not to get influence of it, especially to the relationship because it doesn’t worth at all. I don’t believe these such problems will interfere my heart until I face it up directly and slowly my heart be so sick. Things about someone we’ve ever in love much at the past were made me crazy, but I believe to Allah SWT that will always hear my pray.

Dear God,

Please help me to find out the way I am… the way it should be… show me the way to the closest way of the good things for me… take the bad things far far away from me… amien…
