It was my very first time to wear a Japanese Kimono which my MIL wore during her younger years and I nearly can't breathe coz I was tied, wrapped and trussed all over! Well anyway during the reception, a banquet is served, a lot of chit chats and drinks with the guests, changed my Kimono to Chinese dress just like how Japanese do at a wedding reception ( some change attires 3 to 4 times ) and ended with smiles on our face. It is also in the tradition to give wedding momentous called the Hikidemono to the guests such sweets and or tablewares ( ours was a pair tea cup from Noritake which is my FIL's choice) interiors or a gift catalog where the guest can choose from.
---Received a gift from SIL Mihoko---
---It is also in the tradition to make rounds to the guest's table to pour or fill their drinks---
---Very busy of doing rounds and a lot of talking---
---With Yochan's cousin---
---My PIL received a bouquet of flowers from us ( abot tenga ang smile ng FIL ko lol!)--
Isn't it so much fun to go back and just yank them all out and just sit there and reminisce? ^_^
