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.
