Second wedding reception

sunny 31 °C

Dad said we could sleep in because there wasn’t much planned this morning; however as we enjoyed our breakfast around 9 a.m. he called to say he was here at our hotel and could take us to do our laundry. I must say the hotel breakfast was SO MUCH better than the ones in Europe (although we were probably taken to cheap hotels in Europe). There were so many options from European cereal, bakery, various fruit options to Asian selections of buns, congee and noodles - basically anything you can think of they were there and very yummy!
So our morning was doing our laundry then pick up my dresses for tonight. We had a bit of a rest after lunch before heading to the venue and had my hair and make up done. I had no previous trial with this lady who was in charge of my hair and makeup and she only had the photos of my dresses from the night before to judge what style to do up for me.
Fortunately my friend and aunties/cousins showed up early to help me sort a lot of other things so all I had to do was to sit tight and be pretty.
In Taiwan, most brides would usually have three dresses to change into during the reception but I was happy to have one for entry and the other for thanking the guests once the meal was over and they were on the way home. It was quite a mission to get changed and luckily I had some helpers. The time went past quickly and I didn’t get to eat much but I wasn’t hungry. Overall it was an enjoyable night with friends and family, it was definitely nice to see some familiar faces I haven’t seen for years.
