His parents supported his desire for a simple marriage. Even his father did not interfere with the delivery money from the male side. The father allowed his future husband to give delivery money according to his ability.
"My father just went along with the wedding plans. Even though he didn't interfere much with how much the men could afford. He also suggested that if it's okay to pray together and eat together," said Nadiatul.
Likewise from the family of her future husband who agreed to hold a simple wedding. Nadiatul feels lucky that the family does not interfere in her marriage. In fact, he got help from his cousin who married close to him.
"A week before I got married, my cousin also got married and he had an excess of goodie bags. So he gave it to my wedding," he said.

The thing that Nadiatul thinks about the most is the wedding dress and the photographer because for her it is a memory that she will always cherish until she gets old. So he did not hesitate to spend money for these two things in his marriage.
As for makeup, she does not use the services of a professional makeup artist. She was made up by a friend who wanted to sponsor her wedding makeup. And after the approval, he only invited 200 relatives and closest family.
"200 people, 50 me, 50 husbands, 100 for both parents. Delivery is also what I usually wear later. The men are wedding clothes and shoes. The photographer is also from an old friend of mine and he offers a friend's price," explained Nadiatul.
In her upload on TikTok, Nadiatul wrote that she borrowed a ring from her in-laws. Apparently the borrowed ring was only used at the proposal ceremony. Meanwhile, at the wedding, the husband had already bought it.
"I already have my own wedding ring that my husband bought. Even though my mother-in-law has offered to wear the ring, I refuse," he explained.

"As long as we don't burden ourselves and our partners because later we will also bear everything," he concluded.
