Today I went together with a friend to a photo studio to get my picture taken for my spouse visa. I looked horrible, of course. After that we went together to the office that helps me and my husband with all the documents and gave the the photos so that they can get all of the documents ready. I'm going to Japan next week to the Korean embassy to get my visa. Isn't that so stupid? I live in Korea BUT I have to leave the country and go to a KOREAN embassy to get my visa. It really doesn't make sense to me haha. Anyhow, after being at the office we went to get some warm coffee since today it's horribly cold outside. I thought my face was going to freeze.

Thought I should upload some pictures from the actual wedding hall. It's a bit too dark for my liking, but in Korea it's a trend these days to keep the rest of the room dark with only focus on the couple. But everything else with this wedding hall was perfect, so I think I can get over that darkness part of it.

In Korea, weddings are done a bit differently than from how we do in Sweden. The wedding is most of the times held in a special building called 'Wedding Hall'. Inside the building they usually have everything from the ceremony hall to hair saloons and restaurants. So before the actual ceremony I'm going to sit in this special bridal room and look pretty while the guests can come and and congratulate and take pictures. Our wedding ceremony will be held during one to two hours and after that everyone will eat and then it's pretty much finished haha. Weddings in Korea are expensive and luxurious but very short. Because of that I've said I want to do something after with just the closest family and friends. It feels a bit boring to just end it after a few hours.

2-3 months before the wedding: Menu testing and booking of wedding shoot
2 months before: Wedding shoot
1 month before: Dress fitting, choosing of bouquet, accessories, hair and makeup. As well as sending out the wedding invitations.
3 weeks before: Do a check up on what was done previous week
2 weeks before: Book the restaurant and receive the "Free meal" tickets. We will decide what pictures we want to use for our photo table (pictures from the wedding shoot that is shown outside of the ceremony hall) and rehearsal.

Today it's my husbands grandmother's birthday so we went to visit her at the hospital and gave her cake and sang for her. Today was also the first time I met all of my husbands relatives on his dad's side so it was a little bit awkward. But all of them were so kind, it really warmed my heart for them to be so welcoming for someone like me, aka not Korean. Everyone said that I'm so pretty and even clapped their hands because of it haha. It was so embarrassing! After the visit to the hospital we went all together, about 20 people, to have dinner at a Korean BBQ place. It was delicious as always. For the rest of this year me and my husband will probably just rest and cook some dinner at home. We're too tired to go anywhere today, but we'll see the plans might change.

Today me and my husband went to Myeongdong to do some shopping and have dinner. He bought a jacket, skirt, three sweaters and underwear to me and I got myself some makeup products. Unfortunately it was raining a little, but not too bad, we actually didn't really need to use an umbrella. So we could enjoy our shopping spree anyway. To have dinner we went to one of my favorite restaurants, Abikko. It's a Japanese curry place and the food there is just divine.

Hello everyone and welcome to my blog AhnMi. The name is derived from my first name and my (not yet official) surname. The surname is my husbands, but since I'm currently living in Korea it's too much of a hassle to change it just yet. Anyhow, My name is Michelle and I'm 25 years old, stationed, as previously mentioned, in Korea, in Seoul to be more exact. I've been living here for over two years now, which is much longer than I anticipated. I moved here to study Korean for 11 months, but I ended up falling in love and getting married as well haha. Yes, about marriage, even though we got married on the 18th of August we will not hold our wedding until 5th of May next year. Why you might wonder? Let's just say it's not easy planning a wedding with families spread over two different continents and three different countries. So you'll be able to follow our way to the wedding here. Other than that I'll write about my daily life and what's going on here in Seoul. Stay posted!
