In western country, most couples opt for wedding registry. Me being the practical person that I am, really hope that some day this trend would come to our shore and be practiced by every soon-to-get-married couples! It such a headache to choose wedding gifts for your married friends because you don't want them to end up with 6 rice cookers like my mom! And I also believe that you should give what the person's need/want rather than what you think they want/need. That's why I prefer it if people tell me what they want for birthday gift or whatever.
I believe, kalau you bagi apa orang tu nak and they use it accordingly, you'll get the pahala. Well, provided that they use it for kebaikan lah. Tidakkah itu lagi indah dan bagus? Rather than, diorang biar things you gave them inside the store or sitting on top on kitchen rack, collecting dust?
My fiancé also agrees with me on this (finally!). Maybe we'll come out with our own wedding registry list on Facebook so that choosing a wedding gift for us would be less headache for you. We're not being meminta-minta dan tak bersyukur dengan apa yang diberi. It's just that, if you want to give us something, please give things that we really need.
We're just being practical.
We're so lucky that our juniors in Germany want to buy us wedding gift(s) and most importantly, they ask us what we want in order for them not end up buying the wrong thing! Initially they wanted to give us something from WMF but we already had their famous cookware set and knives! So, we told our juniors that we will come back to what we want for our wedding gift soon!
Most of them will be back during the summer holiday this coming July/August and that left us with about 3-4 months time to finalize with the item that we want!
These are among the items that I want:
WMF pressure cooker, KitchenAid standmixer (so that mixing and baking can be done in style!),
Krups coffee machine (I am a big coffee drinker though I drink less lately)
My fiancé wants this:
Personally, I think that a baby stroller is tad too early. Haha. (pressure!)
But I do really hope that (one of) our wedding gift is this:
A 5 days stay at luxurious villa in Bali!
Yes people, Bali will be out hornymoon destination. We're so smitten by Bali and since 8 years ago, we vow that we will spend our honeymoon in Bali!
