So, on the last January, I had my another first time, become a Bestman for my friends wedding. Friends? yes, both of them is my friend. They are Levi and Albert. Several months before, they ask me if its pssible for me to attend their wedding later. It was a tough decision because I can guarantee that I will be in Indonesia or Jakarta at least at that time. But eventually, I made it.
I knew Levi first and then Albert. I met levi at St. Therecia Church Menteng. We have a kind of ‘gank’ contains I, Levi, Mely, Dayana, and Jimmy. Since then we spent our weekend together. Moreover, we are quite new in Jakarta, so we shared more experience. Sometimes we went to mall that far away from Central Jakarta. Another time we enjoyed a vacation at Pulau Pari, we went to puncak, and many more. Oh, twice or more we spent our night at nice hotel. We dont need to pay because Day have a good connection to some hotels, so we got free. Haha. And then Levi met Albert. The gank become more crowded.
The wedding party took place at Novotel Bandung. Luckily, I got day off for three weeks and perfectly matched with Albert’s wedding. I was very nervous before the wedding, worse than Albert. #sigh. Levi and Albert seemed really busy with the WO. It was such a goood lesson for me, and Daya to. Oh, the bridesmaid is Day.
I tried to overcome my nervousness by reading some blog that explain about wedding party. I preapare some stufs that recommended by that blog that I have to keep it in my pocket all the time. I bought some tissue, oil papaer, aid-band, etc.
Not only nervous, I also feel embarassed because I am the only non chinesee on this circle. Especially when I met their family. Oh, I have to learn many things. Fortunately, they did not care really much. I hope so.
At the end, It was really great time. We delivered our job as good as we can. There was a funny moment when I have to dressed Alber for photo session. It was really awkward. And also the moment when Albert’s parents ‘gave’ Albert to me to be escorted to bride’s place. I gave a wrong “pai” ( greeting in chinesee tradition). Arghh…
And now I have extra experience in my life. I have still two chance to become bestman, since Its only allowed for three times.
Congrats Albert and Levi! Happily ever after!
