Today's couple had been going out for about a year when Tyo stated his intention to take their relationship to the next level. "He asked to meet my parents after we finished our Master's degree. I was surprised since it was only the first year of our relationship. After we graduated, Tyo met my parents and asked for their permission to marry me. This may not sound romantic for some, but it was very special to me," explained Puti. Thus, their wedding preparations began.
Wedding planning might be difficult for some couples, but that was not the case for Puti and Tyo. On the contrary, it brought them even closer together. "Even though we had not known each other for very long, during the preparation we found out that we have the same taste in almost everything. Meeting with vendors and sharing ideas became such a fun thing to do." The couple agreed on a Javanese Garden theme to honor their cultural heritage. They chose to include both Sundanese and Javanese wedding traditions on their wedding day, as they wanted to be able to look back upon their wedding day without any regrets.
Each and every part of their wedding was so exquisite. Puti had her pengajian and siraman processions prior to the wedding day and she looked as beautiful as ever. The akad nikah and wedding reception were no less charming, and the couple's happiness shines through every frame. It could be the venue, the decoration, or perhaps just the couple, but to us, the wedding was wonderful in every way.
Let the pictures speak for themselves and read what Puti has to say about her vendors, wedding planning, and how to overcome stress before the wedding.
From the blushing bride:
I loved everything about the wedding. The venue, for starters, was very beautiful. The Dharmawangsa has a certain cultural elegance with a modern touch that we really liked. Merras designed classic and elegant kebayas for both my akad nikah and wedding reception. For our invitations, Gema Semesta included a batik pattern so our guests could feel the vibe from the moment they received the invitation. Last but not least was the makeup, which is one of the most important elements. Nita Kabul asked me to pray beforehand, and when she brushed me, we were both very calm and focused. She was there all the time to make sure that my makeup remained flawless.
When it comes to weddings, you have to enjoy every moment of the preparation and remember that there is no such thing as a perfect wedding. It comes down to how you can make your wedding perfect even with all the flaws. Be positive. For vendors, it's all about chemistry. Professionalism and responsiveness are the most important elements of a good vendor. Also, make sure that your vendors aren't handling two weddings in one day so they can stand by and focus on your wedding day.
