Well the venue was pretty much decided to begin with. Z liked it, I LOVED it, so wham, bam, thank you ma’am! Deposit made, venue’s booked and now we’re gonna have to work our butts off to pay the rest of the remaining balance.
There was once a time I told Z that I didn’t need a big wedding, infact, I was pretty much settled on getting married at ROMM. Chop chop quick quick (and cheap cheap!). I kept telling Z I didn’t want a huge wedding celebration, all I needed was a blissful marriage and of course, hoping he’ll compensate me with a Prada bag for being such a wonderful and understanding wife-to-be. Much funny, so lol!
And then, I so miang, I started thinking about the ‘what-ifs’. The ‘what-ifs’ ni kadang-kadang amat kuranghajar. It sways you from being the decisive person that you thought you were and sets you thinking on what you should deserve. So, Z, being the no-nonsense , (albeit me, the notoriously nonsensical one) put his foot down and decided that there should be a wedding since both of us are our parents’ first-borns anyway.
I said fine, and wanted to negotiate in having a small but luxurious wedding. Quality, not quantity, people!
Z then gave me an ultimatum, it’s either we go big or we go home. And then I stumbled upon a BTB’s site who had just booked to have their wedding am Gurame.
And after a few hours of research and looking at photos after photos, boy, was I a smitten little kitten. I knew I had to, HAD to have my wedding there. I so semangat take screenshots and whatsapp-ed Z but kena marah because apparently he’s swamped at work and I’m trying to make him say ‘yes’ without him checking out the venue. Zzzzz.
Check out the photos of Gurame below!
What. An alfresco area? Yes, please.
Look at all the space we have!
My mum initially suggested Charisma D’Venue:
It looks pretty, but being confined in a small enclosed area for long hours? No Mother, no. I’ll pass, thanks. Also where will our guests park? I was told that they had to park along a narrow road and then kalau kena sama how? Haa kau haa kau. I don’t want them to remember my wedding as ‘ Oh yah Wani’s wedding, that’s where I got fined!’
I have to admit that having your wedding at Gurame can be pretty pricey. But me and Z are determined to pay every single cent by ourselves. No loans, no assistance from our parents. (Oh we fought long and hard about this). My parents wanted to help out financially but Z being Z, gave a firm no. Walau proud as a
cock peacock this one. So from here on out, I will have to succumb into becoming an office slave, OT after OT, having to eat like a pauper (which will probably benefit my waist size).
Anyway, next up, our Bridal of choice!
