11.1.14 is a day that I will never forget. We have never spoken our mind, only after the ROM ceremony that hubby and I talked about it. Coincidentally both of us felt that ROM is more important compared to the wedding reception.
Though the reading of the vow and signing of the documentation for ROM takes 10 minutes, the preparation for it was months!
First it was the submission of documentations for the purpose of registration. The procedure differs according to the day and venue of registration.
We had the options to sign the papers at Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara at Setia Tropika or at Chinese Associations. JPN is free and Chinese Associations is RM110 fees. Picking a date for registration is troublesome because we need to choose auspicious date that falls on weekend so that my family and friends could make it here without the need to apply for any leaves. Finally we chose Chinese Association because JPN only does the ceremony on weekdays.
My family and friends travelled from KL and I was so grateful about it.
The girls coordinated amongst themselves and decided to dress in floral prints. They looked beautiful and stunning!
We spent a lot in organising the ROM ceremony and we felt that its all worth it! After all it is a very important day to us. In a nutshell we had to do the followings:
1. Buy wedding band
2. Hunt for my dress and heels
3. Book hand bouquet & make up artist
4. Book hotel rooms for family and friends
5. Pick available date for ROM and reserve it
6. Hunt shirt for hubby
7. Book lunch place after ROM to treat our guests (thank the heng tai for this)
8. Book dinner place to treat family and friends
9. Book place to treat friends for coming down to JB. We had our after party at Bar Banyan
And the sis-in-law gave us a surprise with a beautifully arranged cupcakes! Thank the heng tai too for the banner decoration.
It was a hectic day but I love every bits of it. I thank my hubby for being so thoughtful and giving me such a memorable day. Couldn't ask for more and I'm grateful to have him by my side.
Looking forward to our wedding banquet in September!
