Dulang (Gifts exchange trays)

After going around (crazily, I must say) 6 different outlet malls in the US, I changed my mind about having dulangs for our wedding. What started out with the intention to get cheaper dulang items in the US, turned out into something else.

Anyways, I got tired of searching for items so I gave up on the idea of dulangs and luckily, MrF is OK (of cos) with whatever I want (hehe) and the hurdle called “mothers” also wasn’t a hurdle after all.

Some responses I received when I mentioned I don’t want dulangs:

Response 1: Are you sure you don’t want? After kawin, you will never ever get such chances anymore. Husbands do not dote wives like how they dote their girlfriends/tunangs.
Response 2: Just choose anything! Even if you don’t like what you see in the 6 malls. ANYTHING will do! Asalkan branded!
Response 3: Kawan-kawan, let’s psycho her into getting her gifts. She MUST have her gifts.

Funny hor some comments? Anyways, putting aside all comments and responses, to make a simple wedding even simpler, we now only have the mas kawin and the hantaran dulang (for me) and a ring dulang (for him).

The only other items that we have to provide (and instructed by the mothers) are tepak sireh/sireh dara and the bunga rampai (to be distributed after the akad nikah).

Let’s start searching for the mas kawin and your ring, MrF!
