I am the first child in my family to get married. FI is also the first chid in his family to get married, so our parents are really happy that we are finally getting married. My family has super unrealistic (high) expectations for my engagement and wedding. FYI: I'm poor because I just graduated in May 2009 and I feel bad if FI or my parents have to pay for everything. To top it off, I didn't have much time to plan it because I was in the middle of my last semester of school, which meant loads of research papers and exams. Our engagement is meant to be only for close elderly relatives but the guest list ended up being over 100. It was supposed to be meant for about 30 guests. My house was so super cramped; it was a disaster. Here are the pictures from my engagement party.
My mom insisted that I had to wear that ugly bright red dress. ARGHH!!!! Its traditional to wear a gown like that for the engagement but not red. I dislike that color A LOT!! I protested, mother lectured, I bargained, I did the whole nine yards. I ended up wearing that ugly red dress. What I learned from this: mother overrules all. That red dress made me look like a red lucky packet/envelope from Chinese New Years.
