Reflection

  • Wedding luncheon banquet on the wedding day is quite tiring for both family members. However, we can rest early at the end of the day.
  • Avoid listen to long distance relative’s advice last minute.
  • Always stick to the original wedding plan to avoid confusion.
  • Always be flexible for unexpected things or event.
  • The most important things is just enjoy your big day. ^^
