Who ever thought that Tasya and Andy would end up tying the knot a year earlier than planned? Spurred by Andy's father's advice to not postpone an act of goodwill, the couple decided to wed in 2016 with only five months of planning.
They had already done their cultural engagement procession in September 2015, but Andy had another plan up his sleeve. Nine days before the wedding, he gave Tasya five photographs with the question, "Tasya, will you marry me?" on them. Surprised by the simple yet thoughtful gesture, Tasya was touched as she didn't think that Andy would still propose to her despite having already reached that stage. What mattered to her was the sincerity that touched her heart more than anything else.
On the wedding day, they brought along several elements of their cultural heritage. Tasya had Sunda Putri makeup for the akad procession and Sunda Siger for the reception, both done by Sundanese bridal specialist Nita Kabul, who happened to be Tasya's aunt. Luckily for Tasya, her aunt was able to explain the meaning of each cultural procession that the couple were about to do during the ceremony.
For the reception, they had the ballroom transformed by Gaia Nata Decoration into a romantic bamboo garden adorned with fairy lights and a sparkling chandelier. The couple's classic Sundanese attire was designed based on the ones worn by Tasya's parents on their wedding, combined with Andy's favorite color, blue. Such a lovely way to add a piece of your family heritage to your wedding, don't you think?
Without having too much time for planning, Tasya and Andy managed to pull off a truly beautiful wedding celebration. A handy tip when planning a wedding in short notice, according to Tasya, is to not waste time overthinking and comparing too many vendors. At the end of the day, being married to your loved one will be the best feeling you could ever imagine.
