I feel so humbled when MyList.ae invited me to speak again (for the third time to be exact) at their Pre-Wedding Extravaganza event to help the future brides-to-be hosted at Bloomingdale’s, The Dubai Mall.
I was able to speak alongside some wonderful wedding vendors including We Do Weddings & Events (wedding planner), Pret A Papier Design (invitations & stationary), MyList.ae (party favors & gifts), Magnolia Bakery, The White Boutique (catering), Bloomingdale’s professional team of makeup artists & jewelry specialist, and florist. All the wedding experts gave extremely useful tips to the future brides to help them plan their fairytale wedding.
I spoke about how to prepare for the wedding, timelines, budgeting, communicating with the vendors, and setting expectations. I will blog about these in details under UnOfficial Bridesmaid category for the future brides who were not able to attend.
Thank you super much to Line & Stefanie from MyList.ae for inviting me to speak at the event & for such an educational and successful event. I hope the brides use all the ideas, tips, and tricks while planning their wedding day and it helps them achieve the day of their dreams.
P.S. The past two MyList.ae’s events that I spoke at can be found HERE & HERE.
Every time they met after the engagement,
he wrote the date and a short message on a lock.
And kept the keys safe with him.
For he wanted to remember each date & every meeting,
that reminded him for how fortunate he is,
to have her in his life….

They were like two peas in a pod.
Gracing the stage like a royal prince and his princess,
yet so lost in each other’s eyes.
She giggled shyly when he made a joke.
He smiled upon seeing his success of making her laugh, promising to keep her smiling. For eternity and beyond….

As we wrapped up the photoshoot, he was about to leave the bridal suite.
“We’ll see you in the ballroom Ibrahim!” I said to him. He smiled and said “inshAllah.”
Right before exiting the room, he turned around, smiled at her and said “Bistagh-lich!”
She smiled and lowered her wa-wa-woom eyelashes with shyness.
I couldn’t resist and asked her what he said.
“I’ll miss you!” she translated.
Of course the room full of girls gasped and let out a long unanimous ‘awwwww….’ and I thought to myself, this had to be today’s moment that needs to be documented, for ever! ❤

Dearest Bashayer & Ibrahim,
You two! ❤ Absolutely melted my heart! Thank you for having me on your wedding day, trusting me to document your memories, and for the opportunity of witnessing so much love and care. I pray that the Almighty showers you both with his thoughtfulness, care, love, and mercy. May you both always stay in front of each others’ eyes & have tons of adorable ‘awwww….’ moments, ameen.
All her life she wrote his name with hers.
Without knowing that Allah has already written their names together.
As the residents of Bahrain are called Bahraini,
the residents of Pakistan are called Pakistani,
the permanent resident of Jassim’s heart became Alia Al Jassimi ❤
