5 months before D day!

Oh my God, it’s 5 months from now..!
And the very best “surprise” comes on this period: we don’t even know where we’re gonna live.

We had think of few options, but I’m still over think everything, so me!

Now I just realized, who’s gonna do the laundry? dishes? cleaning the house? Aha! Never think of that before 😦


Yohannes bridal: De caption photography

I don’t know whether De caption owned by Yohannes or not, because theh have similar layout for their promo banners.

Anyway, in my wedding package, I got 10 times photograph with them and I’ve been searching the samples of their portfolios as well *a real bridezilla, lol.

And for this reason, I found jj bride instagram!! It made me feel ngiler! Because their indoor photograph feels really modern huhu..

See the difference:
De caption photography
Find them by searching tag #decaptionphotography in instagram



JJ bride

Find them by searching by tags #JJbride in Instagram 🙂


But anyway, no regret!

From the beginning I know that JJ bride photos are amaziiiinggg.. but its ridiculously expensive, cheapest package starts from 14.8 mio, but often people pay more because their CS are very persuasive.

What do you think?

Yohannes Bridal make-up artist

Okay, as far as I know, Yohannes bridal has around 2 senior MUAs and 4 junior MUAs.
The 2 seniors are: Harry and Willy.
The 4 juniors are: Susan, Yogi, Anang & Jaka.
I was trying to get all their make-up samples because Yohannes has been famous for a very thick face changing make-up (bahasa: medok).
After thousand years looking in instagram, facebook, and blogwalking & cooperating with my friend who also has booked Yohannes bridal and had the same concern, here’s the samples:
He has a very active instagram account: @harrymakeupartist. Try to visit them!
I personally think his make-up is too thick.


2. Willy
When I went to Yohannes, it was willy who did the make-up for the Bride that day, and she looks so flawless!
But he’s nowhere in social media, so I haven’t sure about his photo samples 😦

3. Susan
Some of her masterpiece were amazing, but some of them were too thick and overwhelming as well.
you can easily find it by searching for #susanyohannes tag in instagram, because her instagram account is locked (private)


3. Yogi


4. Jaka


5. Anang
Unfortunately I haven’t found it! 😦

Btw, I found this picture showed make-up by Yohannes which I found not very stunning.. lol


So which one you think better?
I finally chosen Willy!
Love at the first sight, lol..


So, few weeks ago he has proposed (yeah, you can say that way). It wasn’t very romantic, no surprise, nothing.. well, you’re in Indonesia, what can you expect? here, guys never really propose, they just say to their parents that they want to get married.. I guess because they’re shy, or it just the way it is.. LOL..


The journey starts, after a lot of juggling and everything.. Started from:


Yeah, lots of rich people and couples are getting married every weekend now and then in Jakarta, so we need to focus on this one, yet the date is not determined yet because his mum still need to check on chinese calendar.

Initially, I wanted to held it in an outdoor concept. I already have a lot of pictures on my mind on how my wedding supposed to be. Yet, his mum said the wedding should be held on the “ber” months, means september onwards. Oh No, means it will be a rainy season, and it’s very risky to held an outdoor event during rainy season, you better kill yourself, lol..

I have contacted some of outdoor venue, such as:

Gedung Arsip

Package 2013 around 79.5 million for 500 pax, already include catering, mini garden decoration (am sure you need to add more), and MC. Not bad, actually!


This is my ideal outdoor wedding in mind 🙂

Thus, his mum prefer to have it in a hotel.. then we started the hotel hunting today!

1. Aryaduta Hotel (poolside)

My bf likes is very much. The cheapest package is 75 million IDR for 200 pax (yeah, it’s still super expensive!).

2. Akmani Hotel

The ballroom is pretty small, yet the price does make sense. The package priced at 65 million ++ (21% hotel tax) for 300 pax.

3. Acacia Hotel

The package priced at 88 million for 400 pax, not bad though, but the ballroom is a bit old. Not my favorite, but in terms of space, this is the biggest affordable ballroom I’ve seen.

4. Ibis Tamarin

Never ever held a wedding here! They just have a small pool area, I can’t even imagine how to fit 300 people in that area! I haven’t asked the package price, because I’m not very interested.
