Counting Down to Wedding - 36 days to go

My soon-to-be-husband Chris left Canada last night to prepare for our wedding day. I have never been involved in any wedding planning in Indonesia, and now we need to do it thousands of miles away from the ceremony location. It's not easy.

The invitation, which should have been out this week, is not yet printed. The invitation company excuses itself by saying that the paper was delayed during delivery. We haven't found an MC yet. Chris still has no idea about the event order for the reception. So he will take care of all those little quirks. He will yell at people if necessary.

Our engagement party will be two days before that. My family will host it. It will be a mini concert from my side of the family. My niece and nephew will sing and dance 2 songs. My cousins will perform a song with piano. My uncle, who is really good at karaoke, will sing us a happy song. My sis-in-law will duet with my little bro on violin. My family will sing a song for me and Chris. My bro and my sis and I will sing a song for our parents (it will be in Chinese -- hopefully I can memorize it).

I am a bit worried about the event back home, but I still have responsibilities here. Oh well... I will just do what I can from here.
