Hm. I removed one major category only to replace it with another. This must be a sign. And no, I’m not slacking off at work – am multitasking actually.
So here it is. The beginning of the wedding preparations.
The story is that we are going to keep this simple and no-frills – just a trip to the Registrar of Marriage (ROM) and a dinner the following year for both our families. Usual Chinese weddings have the whole ragging business in the morning followed by the tea ceremony and then finally the dinner but not for me and Nil. My parents (yes!) want us to keep this simple and small. Amazing, no?
But after going over things, I realized that it only seems simple. I have to consider a lot of things namely the paperwork for the ROM, rings, photo shoot (PS), reception dinner (the Dinner) and accessories like cards, gifts and post-wedding cards.
Each section comes with a headache of its own; the worse being the Dinner. You know how Chinese wedding dinners are. So how do you aim to keep that small YET not offend your relatives?
Luckily for me, there is going to be a wedding expo in KL in July where EVERYTHING will be there. So I’ll be marking it down on the calender and I’m going to drag Nil there. I know he hates PSs but I’m not getting married without taking a picture!!!!!! The ROM will be settled tomorrow when I drop by Jabatan Pendaftaran Negeri to get the forms and more info (as in what Nil would need from his side and so forth – I roughly know this but I want confirmation). Don’t even get me started on the rings, cards and gifts.
You know…getting married looks so much more easier in the movies. Then again, people get divorced faster too.
