The magic number: 29

It’s my wedding date. What makes it magical?

Planning for wedding party is a complex work that includes many heads. It’s tough for me since I sometimes become a stubborn when it came to my interest, such as the venue to held the party. I had a few fights with my Dad when we started to plan and make decision about it.

My Dad decide to take Cawang Kencana as the event venue, while me prefer Caping Gunung in TMII for sentimental reason.

I had a dream book. I made it in 2006. In my dream book, I put the picture of my wedding venue. It is outdoor and full of beautiful lamps, which is so me. Without knowing where is the picture is taken, I put it anyway in my dream book. 7 years later, I found out that the place is Caping Gunung. I knew it when my parents & I attended the wedding exhibition and looking for wedding vendors. I had a goosebumps when I saw a brochure in my hands which has the same picture in my dream book. I said to my parents “This is it. This is the place I’ve been dreaming of”.

But dreams don’t come easily, and so my dream venue. My Dad didn’t agree at all about the place. The first fight happened. Including tears of course.

I proposed 25th of May to become wedding date, and Caping Gunung is available on that date, while Cawang Kencana is full booked and only free on 29th of May.

29th of May is a very risky date. Why is that? Looking in Indonesian calendar, that date is a holiday and only one day left before weekend. It is a potentially
“long holiday” for many workers. Moreover, it’s a holy day for our Christiany fellows. So, I hardly proposed for my date and venue choice: 25th of May at Caping Gunung.

But I failed. Haha. My Dad has the authority to decide everything. It’s his event and he’s the one who has the money haha. So, Cawang Kencana and 29th of May it is.

Time passed by and the preparation is almost done by now. I can see why God arranged the 29th of May to be my big day. It’s the date of Indonesian Environment Exhibition in Jakarta, which means many of my office friends from Yogya will be able to come to my wedding because they will be attending that exhibition too! Alhamdulillahirrabbilallamin..

I am always amazed by God’s work. I always do.

How God has been kind to me and my family.

God is the best planner, creator, and lover.

Thank You, Allah. Thank You.

    Indeed, Nahdya. As I wrote in my post, bridezilla, and other posts before, pernikahan (khususnya bagi orang Jawa) itu tidak sekedar “saya dan dia” namun adalah “pernikahan (antar) keluarga”, dan orangtua-lah pihak utama yang punya “gawe”. Kita mah nampang jadi aktor sehari, hihi.. Membaca postingmu ini mengingatkan akan persiapan pernikahanku dulu. Yes, aku juga mengalami konflik dengan ortu, khususnya dengan Ibu :) Tapi selalu aku inget pesan Bapak, beliau berpesan “Salah satu tujuan utama Bapak menikahkanmu adalah ingin membahagiakanmu, karena mungkin saja ini terakhir kalinya Bapak bisa ‘membahagiakanmu’ sebagai orangtua, jadi terimalah saja Nak, dan bergembiralah. Bapak ingin melihatmu bahagia” yang justru malah sukses bikin nangis.. (masih sampai sekarang) :lol:
    So, dari jauh aku ikut doain ya, semoga diberi kelancaran dan kemudahan, sehat dan selamat semuanya, semoga diberkahi selalu pernikahanmu.. Be Happy Nadnad.. :D

      Betulbetulbetul ^^

      Awalnya aku ga ngeh kalau ini gawenya ortu ^^”. Cuma aku diingatkan sama calon suamiku percis yang mba bilang. Ini gawenya ortu, biayanya juga ortu yang nanggung. Baru aku tersadar.. dan terdiam. ahahha

      Ada banyak emosi menjelang hari-H. Terharu, sedih, seneng, takut.. huaaah.. nyampur jadi satu. Keadaan psikologis jadi sangat fluktuatif :))

      Tp berkat doa banyak orang, persiapannya Alhamdulillah lancar :) Trimikiciiih mba Astuuuut doa dan supportnya :* Semoga lancar kuliah dan jalan2nya ^^

        Iya Nad, segala sesuatu pasti ada hikmahnya.. *sokbijak
        mungkin dengan segala konflik selama persiapan pernikahan ini, kita juga diberi pelajaran, tentang apa saja yang mungkin terjadi ketika kita akan berkeluarga dan akan jadi orangtua :) dan tentunya, kejadian2 ini semoga akan menguatkan “tim kecil” dan malah justru semakin merekatkan kekompakan dan kasih sayang “tim kecil” itu: antara Nahdya dan suami, Nahdya dan orangtua, dan antar keluarga..
        Sama2 ya Nad, makasih juga support selama ini :D
        Ayo gek nyusul lagi ke Eropa trus reuni kita.. ^o^
