Happy Weekend..

Hello Monday. Hello You =) How's your weekend went? Mine was perfect! Yesterday (April 10th) was my Engagement Party. We, Indonesians, call it "Lamaran" in which literally means "Proposing". This is how we do it in our culture:

My man and the rest of his big family, not just his father, mother and siblings but with the whole family from his father's side and his mother's side came to have a visit to my place. On the same condition, I have to gather all of my father's big family and my mother's big family to come to my house to greet my man's big family and to welcome them into my place. The event consists of the introduction of whole family members and the most crucial thing on the event was when my boyfriend's father asked permission to my parents to let his son marry me. After my parents gave permission, my boyfriend's family gave me some kind of gifts called "Hantaran". In return, I gave my boyfriend "Hantaran" too. That's how we do it in our culture.

Other than the engagement itself, what makes me feel so happy is to see the whole family from both sides getting along. And seeing that all of our family member were willing to spend their Sunday to attend the event. I feel so grateful to be surrounded by my big family. There's no better feeling that finding new family members. Below is what I was wearing yesterday. I will post some of the other pictures later =) Have a great Monday...

Congratulations!! You look luminous with joy! I am so happy that the families get along!! Your tradition soulds better to me than no one meeting till the day of the wedding, as is often the case here.
Have you set a date yet?
