I really shouldn’t be blogging on the first day of my honeymoon.

But I didn’t want to forget the details.

It feels so surreal that the day we had been planning 18 months for was over in a flash, and I wish I could go back to savour it over and over again.

It was a mad panic up till the last minute the night before, with me frantically trying to trim escort cards so they can fit into their envelopes (printer got it wrong somehow), tagging bags of props for the bridal party, amongst a substantial list of to-dos or to-checks.

But when the 8th of September arrive, I was cool as a cucumber. One of the best things I did was to visit the reception room before the ceremony, while everything was being set up.Β  Seeing the ideas come to life before me, as my lovely bridesmaids and jiemies bustle around to add the finishing touches, I felt truly blessed.

The floral decorations turned out exactly how I wanted them to be, if not better. The cake looked and tasted divine. The live band was superb. The weather held out and we had a beautiful ceremony by the waterfall (IMO). The photo props went down a treat (even with my grandma!!). Pinky’s sister and family made it in the end. Everything ran like clockwork. Our friends and family were there to make it all a perfect day for us. The speeches from the bestmen and Pinky were both funny and touching. Really..we couldn’t have asked for more.

Even when I fell because my heavy nephew decided to pounce on me with little hands tightly grabbing my hair, or when I had gravy (luckily not from the laksa) spilling onto my gown, I was still (surprisingly) happy and on a high. Doesn’t matter, I’m marrying my favourite man in the world and we had our beautiful friends and family around to celebrate with us.

And now, I’m back to our holiday in Bali. More details and pictures later!
