The only wifey thing I’ve done thus far was to unwrap a fillet-o-fish for my husband to eat while he was driving. 1o points for me, surely.
Days leading to the big day was manic. I was still running errands the day before my wedding – only got to sleep past 2 am. And everything that could have gone wrong on the wedding day, did go wrong. I kid you not. First of many things would be, there wasn’t a chair at my dais – were you expecting me to sit on the stage with my mega-ass long train? Second, the Tok Kadi was 15 mins late for our solemnization – and, everyone else just had to be early on that very day. Well, those were just two of the many things… but heck it, we had a fantastic good time despite all that.
I still can’t describe the feeling I felt on my wedding day. My heart was definitely full in the presence of everyone I love. Who knew that smiling for 12 hours long was hard work – pretty sure I’ve grown some abs around my cheeks area. I loved every part of our wedding, especially the dinner reception where we had our close friends and families to say their speeches. I was holding up fine until Amparo’s speech. The last bit where she said to Luq to take care of her little sister did it for me. The surprise video by Trisyia was too emotional for me. She’s been the one person who’s been there for me through everything despite being 6 years younger than me! See, how can my heart not be full with all the love? I truly feel blessed, Alhamdulillah.
To my beautiful parents, no words are enough to say how much you mean to me. Thank you for loving me for the person that I am and not. I will always keep you in my prayers, always and forever. May Allah grant you a place in paradise, In Shaa Allah.
Of course, my darling husband put together quite a sweet surprise for me. This was probably the ONE time where I needed my mak andam most to dab my tears – make up and tears are not the best combination, at all. Did you know my husband’s tuxedo costs more than my dress? You do now. But yeah, gotta say he looked dashing in it so I would shut up about it.
