Date and Venue: To determine the right date for a wedding is not as easy as it looks. Everything must be considered-the availability of the wedding hall, school holidays, the availability of the rombongan from both side, the prices for the flights, etc.
Being like other bride, I dreamt of 10.10.10 as my wedding date. But the date proposal has been rejected by my father as he wanted it to be done earlier. So, during Eidul Adha in Pontian, there was a small meeting between his families to decide on which date to go for our wedding.
At the first place, our wedding date is determine to be on 29 May 2010 at the bride’s side and 13 June 2009 for the groom’s side. However, as both my sister and brother was expected to have their registration (matrix) on the mid of May, we postponed our wedding to 6th June and 20th June. Last-last they registered on May 11 jugak. Takpe la, mesti ada hikmahnya.
But, something good can be learnt here. If you planned to hold your wedding during school holiday, please book the venue-(wedding hall) a year ahead. Or else, you’ll end like me. No available hall for the whole month of June! Not even ONE in Kuching! And there it goes again, it was postponed to a non school holiday season, which is on 4th of July. Venue will be at Exhibition Hall of PUSTAKA, State Library of Sarawak.
Nak pilih tarikh pun bukan senang taw. Sekarang dah pilih tarikh pun tak tau lagi availability tok kadi. Haiseh, Eppa, do your job! Jangan tangguh2 dah.
